Nickname Origin Edit

Kappa was named after the Kappa in Japanese mythology.


  • Kappa is Emile's first:
    • Pokémon that he entered in a contest.
    • Pokémon with a unique type combination.
  • Kappa is often joked as a Mexican stereotype in the Emerald playthrough due to his appearance.
  • Amusingly, Emile counted the times Rayquaza's Pokeball shook during its catch attempt in Spanish because Kappa was on the field. Even more amusingly, the catch was successful.
  • According to Emile, Kappa looks like a Mexican dancing pineapple.
  • Kappa was the last Pokémon on Emile's team to become fully evolved.
    • Coincidentally, although Kappa was the final member of Emile's team to become fully evolved, he was the first one to evolve to its second stage.
  • Kappa was also the Pokémon that took the longest to fully evolve in the Pokemon Emerald, spanning 39 episodes.
  • In the final battle against Steven, when Kappa is fighting Armaldo, he scored a lot of critical hits from STAB Waterfall, 5 in a row, to be exact.
  • Kappa, along with Emile's other Pokemon from Emerald, has been migrated to his Platinum Let's Play file.
