Wow, another two-word-named Pokémon...

And one of four Pokémon to have "Tapu" in its name. This should be added in the trivia. - LDEJRuff 15:21, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

If something is not unique it is not suitable as trivia. Especially when these four Pokemon are very explicitly related; it's really not surprising if they have similar names. They've kind of always done this, in fact, the clearest example being the Regis. Tiddlywinks (talk) 17:17, 27 October 2016 (UTC)


The Lele in this one's name can also mean to fly (Mokulele) or jump (Lele).—Naui (talk) 18:09, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

Those are much less relevant to Tapu Lele by comparison. Tiddlywinks (talk) 18:21, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
Fair enough. I just felt like mentioning it just in case.—Naui (talk) 19:01, 27 October 2016 (UTC)

Squid basis

Is it possible parts of Tapu Lele's design could be based off of a squid? It has tentacle like hair under a cone shaped hat, as well as having two longer hair strands like a squids longer tentacles. - unsigned comment from ZiggyAngelo8 (talkcontribs)

Current signs point strongly to a butterfly. If anything else turns up that also supports a squid or something, that can be considered. Tiddlywinks (talk) 19:11, 27 October 2016 (UTC)
Along the path of Ziggy's thoughts, could Lele be based off of a nautilus (I personally think Lele's hair resembles a nautilus' tentacles in a way) and butterfly/mermaid/nymph? Or maybe even a conch (with its conical hat)? Maybe it's just me? I dunno. In the end, Lele has a cute design overall though! Powder (talk) 23:23, 14 December 2016 (UTC)

Tapu Genders

It might be just me, but I'm 99% sure that the three more recently released Island Guardians were shown as genderless. Shouldn't Bulbapedia reflect this in their pages? - unsigned comment from Datamoth (talkcontribs)
