Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

I always see these swirls “the morning after” in The Big Easy …

Welcome to the Big Easy, site of this week’s Pokémon post. Y’all pull up a bar stool now …

Shuppet: ( カゲボウズ Kagebouzu in Japanese) is a GHOST-type “puppet” Pokémon.  It evolves into the GHOST-type Banette (  ジュペッタ Juppeta in Japanese) – the “marionette Pokémon” at level 37.

This description of Banette  is from Pokémon Emerald:  “An abandoned plush doll became this Pokémon. They are said to live in garbage dumps and wander about in search of the children that threw them away.”  … and from Diamond & Pearl : “A doll that became a Pokémon over its grudge from being junked. It seeks the child that disowned it.”  Creepy.

I gave one Banette the name Baguette, after these wonderful bread rolls characteristic of New Orleans. They are great for breakfast with a café au lait.

Baguettes are also very appropriate for the Kalos Region (because it’s France), where you can mega-evolve your Banette.

Here in New Orleans, Baguettes are also good bread to make a “Po-boy” (aka “poor boy”) sandwich (i.e. a shrimp sandwich).  They are nice and doughy as well — great for absorbing a lot of alcohol.  Especially, when you need to get something in your drunken stomach to settle it … and hey … you … look out for that guy … oh no … not here you … go outside .. if you have to … NO!!!

Kids: Learn from your Uncle Denny and always avoid alcohol … but I digress.

I have also named Banette “Orleans” in honor of the city.

Shuppet is a hand puppet.  I named a female Shuppet “Dark Doily” after those wonderful doilies that your Grandmother makes.  Kids, make your Grandmother feel special by asking her if you can have one of her handmade doilies.  She will love you for it, and it will make her happy.  I mean, your sweet Grandma, not the other drunken, abusive one … but I digress once again.

Shuppet almost looks like a hankie.  I would hate to think that a Pokemon trainer would make a mistake and blow his nose with Shuppet.  Likely it would evolve into Banette and get back at them with some evil dark ghost revenge.

When my Dark Doily evolved, I did not think that it looked like a doily anymore, so I re-named it “Dolly Darko”.  “Dolly” as Banette is a doll/puppet Pokemon anyway.  Also, this is a reference to the movie “Donnie Darko” which I hated.  Yes, all you “edgy” blogger dudes out there creamed-your-jeans over that movie, but I thought that it was just stupid, and I hated it.  Illogical, and very bad story telling … , but I digress once more.

I initially thought that Mega-Banette could be called “Zipperhead” — but I think that this name might have negative connotations.  Comedian Andrew “Dice” Clay sometimes used the word as a street-level insult against Asian immigrants.

“Wudda you lookin’ at … ZIPPERHEAD?”

A great nickname for Banette might be “The Hoople” or alternatively “Mott” after the 1970s “glam rock” music group Mott-The-Hoople.  They are best known for their hit “All the way from Memphis” linked here, however they had a kind of scary-dramatic song called “Marionette”.  Very cool with headphones!

“Oh, God, these wires are so tight …I’m just a marionette …”

Creepy.  … but I think this captures the spirit and theme of a Banette.

I named another female Banette “DearPrudence” after the Beatles song (linked here). I just thought it fit. Perhaps they are prune color. “Won’t you come out to play?”

I knew you would ask … “Denny, what about the pretty-girl Pokemon cosplay?”

Am I really becoming all that predictable?
