Pokémon Nicknames: Girafarig

John Kerry Push Me Pull You

Girafarig is a dual-type NORMAL/PSYCHIC Pokémon.  The Japanese name is  Kirinriki  キリンリキ .

Paper Girafarig

Girafarig appears to humans as part Giraffe, but it has a strange brown head — that can use psychic powers — where its rear end should be.

Yes, it has a strange hypnotic power …

From the Pokemon Bulpedia website“Girafarig’s tail possesses a head of its own. The tail’s head has yellow eyes, a mouth full of sharp teeth, and a small brain. However, this head is incapable of independent thinking and relies on outside stimuli such as smell to guide its actions. If the tail smells something alluring, it will bite. The tail often mimics the head during feeding, and is able to warn the Pokémon of danger if it is sleeping.”

Dang it! One head was still awake!

It reminds me of the “Push-Me Pull-You” two-headed llama from the original “Dr. Doolittle” movie. “Doolittle” could even be another name.


I named a male Girafarig “John Kerry” after the wooden American politician who was famous for reversing his position on various issues.  His gift to America’s comedians was his famous quote regarding the Iraq war: “I voted for it, before I voted against it”. Of course, you could probably name any one of hundreds of American politicians a “push-me-pull-you” — as most of them talk out of both sides of their mounts, and cannot even be sure themselves when they are lying.

The Americans have a saying: Q: When can you tell if (name any politician) is lying? A: His lips are moving.  But I digress … 

I suggest using names which are palindromes — such as “Hannah” or “Armor Roma“. You can have your own fun with that, you — taco cat.


I like to name females either Fukmei/Sukyuu or Sukyuu/Fukmei after that very disappointing scene in Austin Powers 3 where Austin meets the Asian prostitutes.

You could also name a female Girafarig “Janeane” after the comedian and terrorism apologist Janeane Garofalo.


Get it? “Janeane Girafarig”

Would you want one of these on your team? Girafarig is silly-looking … and a little creepy.  Just like Jeneane!
