The derivation from 'wail' meaning to bellow has been included but there is no reference in flavour text for this Pokémon's entries. Could it have been this characteristic was deprecated before the version was finalised but the name was never changed?

If we don't mention HSOWA, we miss chronicling one of the more amusing parts of the fandom! Things like hot skitty on wailord action are part of the pokemon-related humor that makes a fandom thrive and are too funny not to chronicle in an encyclopedic form!

(Besides, Celebishipping is on here, and I'm sure there are other ships listed equally outrageous)

(Some things are just that funny, and something should be mentioned of the whole HSOWA phenomenon.)

(Not that I have time or knowledge needed to start the article)

Here is the article:
Some random people created something that went like "Hot Skitty on Wailord Action". This became an annoying fad for a week or two and then made a brief reappearance every few weeks, like all boring and non-notable internet fads.

Evkl wanted it removed. Case closed. We're supposed to be an encyclopedia. The pokedex should deal with facts. Not BS.LedianX 00:26, 28 Mar 2005 (UTC)

It is a fact that the fad existed - it came, and it went. Now, whether it deserves a mention, another story. - 振霖T 00:37, 28 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Just because it existed doesn't mean it should be in the Pokédex entries which are for: Moves, Pokedex entries, origins of the names and basic information. Not fads. Evkl already said that it shouldn't be there. Case closed.LedianX 01:22, 28 Mar 2005 (UTC)

The derivation from 'wail' meaning to bellow has been included but there is no reference in flavour text for this Pokémon's entries. Could it have been this characteristic was deprecated before the version was finalised but the name was never changed?
