Name

Does anyone know where Xatu's name comes from? I've had the suspicion that it came from South American mythology, but not much luck yet. -ades - unsigned comment from Ades (talkcontribs)

It's derived from Natu. Simple. - Ferret 16:23, 30 May 2005 (UTC)

Pronunciation

How exactly is Xatu pronounced this has bugged me for years and I honestly don't know why Bobtherandomguy 01:17, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Za-tuu, I think. Tina δ 01:19, 24 March 2008 (UTC)
That's how I say it. The X is pronounced like the one in xylophone. TTEchidna 06:46, 24 March 2008 (UTC)

Crystal sprite

Alright, so I know it's a pain to make the animated sprites, but if somebody could fix the normal colored Crystal sprite, that'd be helpful. It's showing the beak and head feather from two different frames at the same time. R.A. Hunter Blade 20:55, 8 September 2009 (UTC)

The Inspiration for Xatu

I made the edit regarding how a Xatu looks like a Native American kachina doll, but it makes me wonder if the inspiration for Xatu comes from kachina dolls rather than totem poles. Have we gotten any sources verifying either? NoirTheSable 04:07, 11 February 2010 (UTC)

Initial image is female

When the gender difference was introduced, the male image was based on the initially released image and a new (small) variation/redesign was made to make them female. When I was checking the gender difference, I noticed that Xatu was female and they redesign it to be male. Are there any Pokemon same as this? ReignBough (talk) 20:32, 23 July 2020 (UTC)

Meganium, Meditite, Beautifly, Torchic, Ludicolo, Milotic. There are also plenty of pogeys whose artwork is the female variation in gen 4. Kai * the Arc Toraph 21:40, 23 July 2020 (UTC)
