- Not really. We don't note that Charizard is one of three Fire/Flying Pokémon. Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 20:47, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
- Maybe so, we do note something like that in Emonga. Turtwig's A-B-Cs (talk | contribs) 20:51, 8 August 2010 (UTC)
Trivia: matters or things that are very unimportant, inconsequential, or nonessential; trifles; trivialities.
Too me that is exactly what my comment is. It is just an interesting tidbit that not very many people would search out, perfect for a Trivia section. I'm not saying you're wrong, if they manage to create like 10 Bug/Grass pokemon in Gen V, then my statement doesn't really matter, but you'll get an entirely different piece of trivia from it all together. And maybe that means Charizard's page should be updated to say so; why does it mean that since it doesn't have it, neither should anything else?--Paperstraw 13:03, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
- That's waaaaayyyyy too specific to be trivia. ~ solaris 20:21, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
Since Kurumiru is the "Sewing Pokémon," is it possible that it could be based on a specific type of caterpillar, the silkworm? The leaf on top of its head looks very similar to a white mulberry leaf, which is the preffered food of the silkworm.--PhantomJunkie 22:06, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
- Punny. Oh, GameFreak, you outdo yourselves sometimes. —darklordtrom 22:29, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
I thinkthat is a respectable comparison. --Paperstraw 23:50, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
- A posssible name origin: 包む kurumu means "to wrap up" or "to dress in" in Japanese; this ties in to the silkworm idea fairly well, I think, since the silk produced by the silkworm in the wild is used to "wrap up" the larva in its cocoon when it becomes a pupa.--PhantomJunkie 23:57, 9 August 2010 (UTC)
Trivia, to put somewhere on the wiki?
I'm not sure if this can even go in Kurumiru's article or anywhere else on the wiki, but I just figured I would mention it. Every odd numbered generation seems to introduce a new caterpillar or worm-like Pokémon. Generation I introduced Caterpie and Weedle, Generation III introduced Wurmple, and Generation V introduced Kurumiru. It seems trivia-worthy to me. Rai Marshall 07:35, 10 August 2010 (UTC)
- If Kurumiru plays the same role as Caterpie, Weedle and Wurmple, then that would fit nicely at Bug (type). —darklordtrom 07:42, 10 August 2010 (UTC)
Anyone know where the name comes from? Eddie Blake 12:30PM, 12 August 2010 (AEST)
- Well, the Japanese verb 包む kurumu means "to wrap up" or "to dress in"; this ties in to the silkworm idea fairly well, I think, since the silk produced by the silkworm is used to "wrap up" the larva in its cocoon when it becomes a pupa. --PhantomJunkie 03:18, 13 August 2010 (UTC)
---It's also "wrapped up" in a leaf Vienna Waltz 10:40, 27 August 2010 (UTC)
The designer responsible for Kurumiru stated in Pokémon Pia that it's based on a leaf-rolling weevil.

- There is no way that THIS is Kurumiru...

- That's a grown bug. The leaves are for eggs and the larvae eat their way out. PLA 22:21, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
A bug that wads up leaves came up in the Sugimori interview for Pia. Quick google shows a kind of leaf cocoon. It does look like Kurumiru has simply wrapped a leaf around itself in several laps, and as noted in the silkworm trivia, it is the "sewing pokemon". Silkworm would rather be weaving than sewing, though. Making clothes out of leaves, now that's sewing. PLA 22:19, 11 September 2010 (UTC)
Can we post that sewaddle's pokedex entry contrast from each other it's white entry states hahakomori clothes it but in black it states it clothes itself?Badwolf1234 16:40, 27 January 2011 (UTC)
