Trivia

  • The Japanese name of this Ability is a double entendre, written so as to suggest ノー天気 nō tenki (no weather), but also homophonous to 能天気 nōtenki (carefree), in reference to Psyduck, originally the only Pokémon (in addition to Golduck) that had this Ability. The English name derives directly from the "carefree" meaning, while still maintaining a weak pun to connect it to the weather.
