Japanese name

[1] like you see in this picture Pendra's name is Pendror. --- Misaki, 13:53, 25 January 2011

Yep, Pendra was never an official romanization. However, we shouldn't move it and Hatoboh because their English names are practically confirmed.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 14:28, 25 January 2011 (UTC)

Pendror or Pendra?

The page contradicts itself. An admin that knows what the real japanese name of Pendr'a/or' should change it. --Landfish7 01:36, 28 January 2011 (UTC)

We know, the only reason for keeping it like this is the international release of BW. Their English names will be revealed soon enough, so it's useless to rename all the stuff at this moment. So, kindly wait for few more days. Thank you ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 01:40, 28 January 2011 (UTC)
I am not referring to the English names, I am referring to the fact that the japanese name of Pendr(a/or) changes throughout the article. At some points it says Pendra at others it says Pendror. I was wondering which japanese name is trademarked. Pendror seems to be the one used around the site, and while we don't have to move the page considering the english names will be confirmed before we know it, we should at least make the article consistent with itself. --Landfish7 17:54, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
Look a link above, Pendror is trademarked. That's why it's mentioned in infobox and intro.----無限の知性DENNOUZENSHI 17:58, 5 February 2011 (UTC)
Easy to say, hard to do *no offense*. Staff have decided to leave it as it is for now, it'll be pointless/time taking to move/rename all the stuff over and over again when we know that we have to do it all over again soon enough. Kindly, have some patience. Thank you ♫♪AdyNiz♪♫ 18:03, 5 February 2011 (UTC)

Name Origin

(To add if and when 'Scolipede' is the confirmed english name:)

Scolipede is a combination of the words centipede and Scolopendra, a genus of centipedes. Pendror, Scolipede's japanese name, also derives from the word Scolopendra. --Landfish7 22:18, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

More like a Millipede?

I think Pendror looks much more like a centipede than a millipede. Look at the images following the links below and compare them to Pendror and I think it is easy to see that it looks more like a centipede than a millipede AND afterall it is the Mega Centipede Pokémon. [2] [3] (millipede close up:)[4] I refuse to say that it has no relation to a millipede, but saying that it looks more like a millipede is a matter of opinion and should be changed to say something along the lines of, "Pendra also shares traits found in other arthropods such as the millipede." --Landfish7 22:18, 16 February 2011 (UTC)

I have to agree that it is more like a centipede than a millipede, as a key distinction between the two is that a centipede has only one pair of legs per body segment whereas a millipede has two pairs of legs per segment (excluding the first 3 segments which have one pair of legs each) and this Pokémon clearly has one pair of legs on all of it's body segments. Oshawhat? 21:23, 19 February 2011 (UTC)

I don't think scoliosis has anything to do with its name. It simply has a similar etymology to scolopendra Dakhem Uaid (talk) 21:17, 13 June 2013 (UTC)

Llama

By the way it stands, do you think that some of its origin comes from a llama or alpaca? --ケンジガール 12:36, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

...no...not at all Ataro 13:27, 22 February 2011 (UTC)

Trivia needs rewording

The trivia currently includes a poorly-worded line about Scolipede and Purugly's Speed stats. Can someone who can still edit this page fix the wording? --RiverAura 16:26, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

Ancient Centipede

Could Scolipede also be based off Arthropleura? An ancient Centipede which grew to about the size of a car? Here is a link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arthropleura Buizel1991 11:19, 12 March 2011 (UTC)

Naming?

I think that Scolipede's name may come from scold, in direct contrast with Leavanny's nature. It's not the first time that the english version of the game made "counterparts", for lack of a better word, easier to see.- unsigned comment from Spearbeedrill15 (talkcontribs)

Scolipede A Mix

To me this looks more like a mix between a centipede and a millipede for one reason It has the body and legs of a millipede and the end peaces of a centipede. This is probably to "Kill two birds with one stone. - unsigned comment from Hoytti (talkcontribs)

This provides a great explanation as to why it is primarily inspired by a centipede. --SnorlaxMonster 15:38, 12 January 2012 (UTC)

Speed Boost

As of Gen VI, Scolipede's Hidden Ability is Speed Boost. This also applies to its pre-evolutions. --Poppy :3 21:33, 29 October 2013 (UTC)
