Today we will consider the two Jellyfish Pokémon.
Tentacool (in Japanese: メノクラゲ “Menokurage”) is a WATER-POISON dual type Pokémon. It evolves into Tentacruel starting at level 30.
Tentacruel (in Japanese: ドククラゲ “Dokukurage” ) is also a dual-type WATER-POISON Pokémon. They can be either male, or female, but I can see no difference in appearance.
I nicknamed a Tentacool “Joe Cool” after the dress-up outfit sometimes worn by the Peanuts comic strip character Snoopy.
You could name this jellyfish Pokémon “K-Y” but maybe that is just being too weird …
Tentacool has cool tentacles. My idiot ex-brother-in-law once said they were “testicles”, but he was a stupid jackass … and I digress.
Tentacruel will use its tentacles and be cruel to you. … as “the Jesus of Cool” … Nick Lowe would attest: “You have to be cruel to be kind”.
I named one “NICK LOWE”, and another “Cruel2BKind”.
I think that Man-O-War after the Portuguese Man-Of-War battleship, and the jellyfish named after it.
In general, I have fewer Female Tentacruel nicknames, but here is some good lady jellyfish cosplay:
I know that “Tentacle” videos are a part of Japanese Culture, but I will not go there today.
I hate encountering a Tentacruel. They are a status problem just waiting to happen. I do not even care about the training points gained by defeating them.
Tentacruels could just be named after mean people you might know – a mean boss or the like. “MotherInLaw” is one possiblility. All the POISON moves, plus binding moves like WRAP are appropriate.
I have named some female Tentacruel “SoulSucker”. You kids may be too young for this, and hopefully you will never be in a bad relationship, where the other person, SUCKS ALL THE JOY OUT OF LIFE … WHERE EVERYTHING YOU DO IS NEVER GOOD ENOUGH … THEY TAKE EVERYTHING YOU HAVE, AND EVERYTHING YOU EVER WILL HAVE … THEY TAKE YOUR GREATEST ASPIRATIONS … THEN CRUSH ALL YOUR HOPES AND DREAMS … AND LEAVE YOU A HUDDLED, PATHETIC, SHIVERING MASS OF YOUR FORMER SELF …
Oh. … er … ah –hem … sorry.
Now where did I put that jelly?
