- Pokémon with a unique type combination.
- Kappa is often joked as a Mexican stereotype in the Emerald playthrough due to his appearance.

- 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.
