Is "Daruma" a Japanese pronunciation of "Dharma"? --*Ɣℯ№ӎօṫհ* 20:00, 12 October 2010 (UTC)

There is an object known as a Daruma doll. Hihidaruma bears a resemblance to those dolls, even more so when in Daruma Mode. --Darkeiya talk to me! 21:05, 12 October 2010 (UTC)
I also believe I've seen Daruma romanized as Dharma (maybe in Animal Crossing?), but the words really don't have the same meaning. --AndyPKMN 00:37, 13 October 2010 (UTC)
Yeah, according to the Wikipedia article about the Daruma doll both are relevant. --*Ɣℯ№ӎօṫհ* 00:09, 14 October 2010 (UTC)

If a pokemon is hacked to have this ability...

Does it just glitch up or what?--Burgundy 23:34, 9 November 2010 (UTC)

Probably, as Daruma sprites of other Pokémon doesnt exist. DeadUniverse Hello! 11:10, 22 November 2010 (UTC)
Do Skill Swap, Role Play and Trace fail? I'm guessing it would work like Forecast and just not work for any other Pokémon. --SnorlaxMonster 12:13, 22 November 2010 (UTC)

Breeding

Just wondering, can you make more Darmanitan with this ability by breeding one that has zen mode and having it's offspring inherit it? Or would it just hatch a regular Damanitan?--Spongeenthusiast 22:47, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

Yes, breeding a female with Daruma Mode results in a 50% chance of Darumakka being born with its hidden ability, which will change to Daruma Mode when it evolves. XVuvuzela2010X 23:15, 3 August 2011 (UTC)

Form change

If the circumstances are given, does it change back to Standard Mode immediately or at the end of the turn? --- Pokémon Questions? -- 09:58, 22 January 2014 (UTC)
