Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

MoshiMoshi

Foongus (Japanese: タマゲタケ Tamagetake) is a dual-type Grass/Poison Pokémon. It evolves into Amoonguss (Japanese: モロバレル Morobareru) and retains the Grass/Poison dual-type.

The mushroom cap Pokemon Foongus is based on the word “fungus” and the larger mushroom Amoonguss is a play on the phrase “the fungus among us”.  I do not like to train Pokemon where these fungi live.  (I’m not a fun guy.)  These Pokemon are usually just a status problem waiting to happen.  Also, that Pokeball pattern cap would always fool me because I thought I have found an item in the field. Pokemon mushrooms

Here are my nickname suggestions for these mushroom Pokemon.

“Moshi Moshi” —  This is a phrase for answering the telephone in Japanese (as seen above).

“Fungo”  – as in to “hit a  fungo” in baseball.  A fungo is a fly ball hit for practice fielding by a player who tosses a ball in the air and hits it as it comes down.  A special, lighter “fungo bat” is used for practice.

OK, I'm going to hit a few fungos for you, then I need to go see Tony.

“OK, I’m going to hit a few fungos for you, then I need to go see Tony.”

If you are Italian, fungo means mushroom.

However if you Italian-American and  only a little bit angry, you can substitute “fungo” instead of “f*ck you” as appropriate.  (As if you would ever see Italian guys talking like that.)

“FUNGO! … and I mean that in the nicest way possible.”

“MooGooGaiPan”  — Thank goodness that in Kalos you can now use 12 letters!  You can name your Pokemon after the wonderful Cantonese stir-fry dish with white chicken, mushrooms (moo-goo) and snow pea pods in a white sauce.

… and that’s some gooooood fungus.

  1. Stumped on this one, moogoogaipan, hmmm, like it, very creative. I recommend looking into “pokeball”. Mash moogoogaipan and pokeball, and you got pokepan, or moogooball. And that’s a little bland! (^。^)
