Now, when the word was first taken into English, it was added the simple 'es' on the end, as was customary. But, in the 1800's, I think (I forget the exact date) there was a huge push to try and make English sound more Latin for reasons revolving around growing medical terms and just simply because people thought it sounded better, thus replacing 'es' with 'I'. Unfortunately, it stuck like that.
But, before all that, the correct and original plural for octopus in Greek, is octopodes. The original way to say it in English, is octopuses.
Another fine reasoning and somewhat proof of this is the word 'genius'. Again derived from Greek, Translated into 'geniuses', pushed into 'genii', then back into 'geniuses'. Although 'genii' means something else entirely. (A tutelary).
English is a fun thing to have a masters in. Although it can get extremely tedious.

octopodes is the true plural for octopus since it is from ancient greek.
