Rowap -> Rowan Plant

Not just the word "Rowan". This is because Japanese loanwords tend to contract loanwords. This also includes Pokémon (ポケモン, pokemon, short for pocket monster). Another example is motorcycle = オートバイ = ootobai, derived and contracted from motorbike.

Rowap = rowan plant = ロワップ (rowappu), shortened from ロワンプラント(rowanpuranto).

Damage?

How much recoil damage does the Jaboca Berry deal to a physical attacker? --JacobCrystal 04:41, 7 December 2009 (UTC)

Rowan?

A reference to professor ROWAN, the D/P/Pt professor. -Sartharis, God of Twilight 23:59, 12 March 2012 (UTC)

Not at all. Just spelled similarly. Frozen Fennec 00:00, 13 March 2012 (UTC)
