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..."
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." --- Nintendo will get its revenge: http://www.ifilm.com/ifilmdetail/2686716?htv=12
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. --- http://i458.photobucket.com/albums/qq303/CharizardFire6/Char-Brawl.gif
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) --- Lohad from Requin 0989-1737-4397.
