Looks like Octi?
Is this really notable? It's just an octopus. That's like saying that (Insert person who has and elephant doll) has a doll that looks just like Phanpy. I have removed it once, but I don't want to start an edit war over it. Rawr I say! 14:09, 28 September 2008 (UTC)
- I agree. Just a generic octopus. Let's delete that stupid trivia! --Maxim 14:13, 28 September 2008 (UTC)

Should we say that Octillery was the only pokemon that can hit every pokemon super effective? Since it can learn both waterlog and grass/electric type move? jomphol 08:40, 29 December 2010 (UTC)
Arceus is unaffected by Waterlog, because it has Multitype; but it is true that Octillery is the only Pokemon able to use Waterlog able to gain a type advantage from its moves (excluding Hidden Power and Natural Gift). --Swagmander 03:52, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
Octllery bears similarities to the Octorok enemy from the Zelda series. Both are red octopus monsters that are capable of shooting rocks from their snouts. (Octillery can learn Rock Blast.) While the Octoroks from The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time may not be red, they have "sleepy eyes" like those of Octillery. In the original Legend of Zelda, yellow spots were seen on the Octoroks' heads. Is this worth a mention? --Swagmander 03:46, 21 February 2011 (UTC)
Possible Mistake on Physiology of Octillery?
I noticed the article says that Octillery has 8 legs, yet both in the anime and in the back sprites of Octillery, it only has 7: 5 in the back, and 2 in the front. --Emdude 03:17, 26 July 2011 (UTC)
- There are clearly eight. XVuvuzela2010X 22:15, 26 July 2011 (UTC)
- There are only eight in that anime picture. Count the sprites... they are 7 Toadstool 23:59, 26 July 2011 (UTC)
weird cocktail weenie origin possibility?
So I'm watching Ouran High School Host Club, and a girl made another girl her "favorite" for lunch, which is Octopus shaped cocktail weenies. Then when the girl the weenies were made for made a pass at the other girl, comparing her to the weenies and saying "perhaps you would like me to feast one you?"
So, after seeing this, I thought I would play devil's advocate and ask if Octillery might have some basis on this Japanese culinary construct?
I know Harley once enjoyed Octillery shaped food, and hates may because a girl that looks like her ate it.
So could Octillery be based off a way of fixing cocktail weenies to look like octopuses?
