Did we ever figure out what the "Takes Plenty Of Siestas" characteristic is?

Does it replace another characteristic? Which one, if so? If not, what does it mean? Have we found any other new characteristics?
The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not "Eureka!" but "That's funny..."

They changed characteristics too? Lol Gamefreak XD.

I dunno. I've seen "Nods Off A Lot" characteristic and take that as "Often Dozes Off."

Takes Plenty of Siestas characteristic

I can confirm it to be a HP Characteristic. I suspect it may have replace "Often Scatter Things." I do recall seeing the characteristic "Scatter Things Often."

Actually, I'm fairly certain that "Takes Plenty Of Siestas" is the same as "Often Dozes Off", based on what I observed from soft resetting for my Tyrunt.

Ok, now I'm not sure what it means now. I just caught another level 15 Magikarp with "Takes Plenty of Siestas."

My Lapras has a 31 HP IV, and has this characteristic, and 5 20 IVs.... I think the Lapras in the bay has these IVs deliberately.

It's Often Dozes Off. It was to fix a mistranslation.

The one called "often dozes off" in Japanese was mistranslated as "Often Scatters Things", and that was fixed too.

Adding to what TorchicBlaziken said, here's a comparison chart between the Japanese original meaning, the (mis)translation up until Gen V, and the correct current XY translation.
HP%5=1 means the remainder of the HP individual value when divided by 5 is 1.

(Japanese original - IV and V translation - XY translation)
Hiruneoyokusuru - Often dozes off - Takes a lot of siestas (HP%5=1)
Inemurigaooi - Often scatters things - Nods off a lot - (HP%5=2)
Monooyokuchirasu - Scatters things often - Scatters things often - (HP%5=3)
