Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

SAMSUNG

I won this stuffed Croagunk at a county fair a couple of weeks ago.  I only had to spend $5 on baseballs to bring home this little guy!  I feel compelled to write a Nicknames post for it, but I will always take your suggestions.

Croagunk (Japanese:  グレッグル Gureggru) is a dual type POISON-FIGHTING Pokémon.  It evolves into Toxicroak (Japanese: ドクロッグDokurog”) at level 37.

Ha Ha ... Croagunk would always jab Brock in the ass !

Ha Ha … The “running joke” … Croagunk would always jab Brock in the @ss when he would get out of line with the girls.

I do not usually catch many Croagunk.  Nothing against him, he just looks like a sad sack. I named a Croagunk “Gustovich” after a guy I knew.  He looked like Croagunk.  So did his big brother, and his little sister, … and his other sister.  The whole family looked like Croagunk.*  Nothing against them, they were cool, but they looked like Croagunk — especially the girls —  they just always had that expression.

I have also used the name “PCBs” after the toxic waste chemical.  Arguably, that name fits slightly better for the evolved form.  I named another one “MyJunk” because it is funny to have the trainer throw out the pokeball and say “Go .. My Junk!”.  I might also suggest “Gummout” after the carburetor cleaner in a spray can.  “PunchDrunk” might work, as it is a fighting type.

This toxic toad is no longer hiding behind the toilet.

I think that a good name for Toxicroak would be “Wet Sprocket” after the name of a fictitious pop-music band referred to in a Monty Python sketch.  The name the Pythons referred was “Toad-The-Wet-Sprocket”. In fact a real alt-rock group adopted the name, and had some minor hits. Here they cover the famous KISS song ‘Rock and Roll all Nite”. That is one cool sounding Toad!

Toxicroak: You show us everything you got …

*Trivia Note: One of the Gustovich brothers went on to be an artist for Marvel Comics.  If you have a collection that goes back to the late 1970s, you may have seen his drawings of Iron Man and the like. That is if you like comic books and all that nerdy stuff : )

  1. That Toxicroak cosplay is good but somewhat unsettling. “MyJunk” is a funny nickname.
