Pikablu aka Marill

At school today I was drawn into a discussion about whether this particular Pokémon's name was Marill or Pikablu.

Well, I suppose that called for some investigation.

So, using the wonders of Wikipedia I found this article.
Edited Excerpt:
Marill was one of the "preview" Pokémon to the second generation of Pokémon games, cards, and anime.
Before the release of Pokémon Gold and Silver, rumors of a Pokémon named Pikablu had spread via the internet throughout the Pokémon community. When preview images of Marill were released, many fans thought it was to be the rumored Pikablu. These rumors were proven false when "Pikablu's" name was revealed to be Marill and when it was found that Marill is not related to Pikachu.
The Pikablu rumors are completely false. Pikablu does not exist and therefore there is absolutely no way to catch Pikablu.

I also found this:
Edited Excerpt (I kept the CAPS, it had such charm):
MARILL IS NOT PIKABLU. He never was and never will be! And Marill does NOT EVOLVE INTO RAIBLU! If you ask me, they look more like Jigglypuff and Wigglytuff than Pikachu and Raichu!

Stumbling over this next:
Edited Excerpt:
Marill: At first, many thought it was related to Pikachu and named it Pikablu. This, however, is not the case.

Conclusion: The real name of the Pokémon is Marill, the name Pikablu was purely hype and the creature only has one personality! Congratulations Marill, you are you, and not somebody else, bet that feels great - doesn't it?

If you're still not entirely convinced, why don't you get yourself a Marill and ask him in person? - let me know if he lets you in on a secret.

Thank you, and Goodnight!
