Trivia

Origin

Sizzlipede is likely based on a centipede or millipede and radiators. It may specifically be based on the Fire Centipede who glows like fire thanks to its bioluminescence. Its Pokédex entries also state it may be based on a gas stove, as it stores heat through gas and cooks its foes. It may also be based on the the Ōmukade, a youkai based on a red-headed centipede who is weak to human saliva, referencing the Fire type's weakness to the Water type.

Etymology

Sizzlipede is a combination of sizzle and centipede or millipede. It may also come from lip, as the fire it sports on its face resembles a mustache, which is often referred to as a lip-brow.

Yakude comes from 焼く (yaku, to grill or bake), 蚰蜒 (yasude, millipede) and 蜈蚣 (mukade, centipede).
