Final form?

This looks like it could be the final evolution of Kibago Theviolinkid 17:26, 3 August 2010 (UTC)Theviolinkid

That's pure speculation. No proof. So not going to be added until confirmed true or false --S2daam 13:11, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
If it was... then Kibago now look creepy. But anyway, the colour scheme is the same.--444Zekrom 10:25, 12 September 2010 (UTC)

戦く--Name Origin

戦く, ononoku, means "to shake, to shudder". Its noun form, 戦き ononoki, means "shudder, shiver, agitation". I'm betting on this being at least a possible name origin.--PhantomJunkie 17:44, 3 August 2010 (UTC)

Thanks, added --S2daam 13:14, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
Its name is likely a combination of 斧 ono, axe, 戦く ononoku, to shake, to shudder, and アックス akkusu, axe.KurowaSan 14:28, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
Actually, "to shudder" is the one that I think translates better, so it would be:
Its name is likely a combination of 斧 ono, axe, 戦く ononoku, to shudder, and アックス akkusu, axe.KurowaSan 14:32, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
I did my research to, and yes, I beleive the one above to be the best! --S2daam 20:23, 4 August 2010 (UTC)
Personally I doubt whether the ononoku part had anything to do with the naming of this pokémon as ono and akkusu alone seem enough. But we hardly know anything about this pokémon yet, so I'll just throw this out there and wait till at least the pokédex entries of Ononokusu are known. : ) キーリー 23:59, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
If it was just ono and akkusu, then why have the second no in the name? I would figure if it were just the two words for axe, the name would just be Onokusu. PhantomJunkie 16:43, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

OH NO, NO KOOSOO.

What the hell is koosoo? I dunno. TTEchidna 10:16, 5 August 2010 (UTC)

Cooler Ononokusu picture

[1]<-----Click here for it(you can use it if you want bulbapedia,I don't mind)--Pikachufan22 18:09, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

That's fan art, it can't be used. Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 18:10, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Oh,well at least I tried to help.--Pikachufan22 18:21, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Er, if memory serves, didn't we use fanart for the Arceus article's infobox until the official Sugimori art was released? Just throwing that out there. - unsigned comment from Missingno. Master (talkcontribs) 18:28, 29 August 2010 (UTC)
At MM, we did, but that's a legendary event. This is a Pokémon in a game that isn't released yet. They're slightly different things. At Pikachufan, sorry If I came out mean, I was just saying that, and ended up being wrong. Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 19:34, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

It's OK--Pikachufan22 20:30, 29 August 2010 (UTC)

Evolutions

I just wanted to point out that this is a Stage 2 Pokemon. It's Basic Evolution is Kibago (Pokémon). The proof is here, http://pokebeach.com/2010/09/leaked-black-and-white-pokemon-information Kingdonfin

That's not proof. Pokexperto isn't official.--Pokélova! 07:38, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

Animal counterpart :

Oops... sorry I posted on the wrong place. Could Ononokusu have been partly based on the armadillo girdled lizard : [2]--Kouprey 17:18, 13 September 2010 (UTC)

Breeding Moves

Hi, could someone change the type and category of counter in the breeding table? It's listed as Type: Physical as opposed to Fighting and Category: Status instead of Physical. I assume the article for Counter is correct, which makes this wrong. Thanks --Oshawhat? 09:37, 7 February 2011 (UTC)

       Never mind, I did it myself. Oshawhat? 14:04, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Origin

(Probably very obscure/impossible to confirm) origin of BOTH the English name and the Pokémon itself. Just take a look at this. Pay attention to the date this particular image was posted. I honestly don't even know what to say. --HTMLCODER.exe@bulbapedia$_ /usr/bin/apache2 -k restart 20:28, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

As of now, we are going to have to assume it as a coincidence unless we get information from an official source stating that it is from this particular picture. (Not impossible, but highly unlikely). --Landfish7 20:33, 9 February 2011 (UTC)
Well, like I said, probably there's no way to confirm it. Although the odds are like 1 in 2, because of all the similarities. A biped dino, with axes on its head. And the name. Consider the poster's username, though, "theonegamefreak". <batshitinsanespeculation>Maybe he is a Game Freak employee, who had this weird idea and posted it on DA a year before the game got released, and someone in the Pokémon design team thought they'd use this for an idea. Could work out, since the game was in dev back then.</batshitinsanespeculation> No, seriously. We could at least mention it in the trivia. Or the whole big "H4x0r" and "1337 speak" deal. There was a shout out to Leet in M&L: Partners in Time. Why not here?

TL;DR: Yeah, probably no way to confirm, but either this fact OR the "Haxor" thing could have a place somewhere in the trivia section. --HTMLCODER.exe@bulbapedia$_ /usr/bin/apache2 -k restart 22:02, 9 February 2011 (UTC)

Thel 'Vadam

Should it be noted in the origin or trivia section that Haxorus looks similar to the arbiter Thel 'Vadam from Halo? At least it's neck and body structure is similar. Peanut64

No, we don't usually note those kinds of similarities. --SnorlaxMonster 06:39, 16 August 2011 (UTC)

sources

"Ken Sugimori confirmed that it was based on a plant-eating dinosaur." I am pretty sure something like that needs some kind of a source 0danmaster0 (talk) 20:54, 21 September 2013 (UTC)

  • I second that request, otherwise it should be removed since it sounds a bit like speculation to me. :-/ ----NateVirus(Talk|Contributions) 01:41, 25 September 2013 (UTC)
