Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

No, Todd you were not crazy.

1970s progressive rocker Todd Rundgren during one of his phases. Perhaps he was trying to attract a mate.

Masquerain ( in Japanese アメモース  “Amemoth”) is a BUG-FLYING dual-type Pokémon. Masquerain evolves from Surskit starting at level 22.

Masquerain is similar to the moths and butterflies that try to mimic the eyes of a larger, scarier animal.

Some bugs will try to scare off a predator by pretending to be something that they are not …

Mimi would frighten anyone!

I named a Masquerain “Maybelline” after the ladies eye make-up company. The name “Mimi” is good, if your remember the garish  makeup worn by The Drew Carey Show character.

Masquerain is basically a flying Mardi Gras mask.  These masquerade masks are great to wear, because you could be looking right at a Bourbon  Street party girl, and still not know anything about her.  The masks are so secretive and private.

Mardi-Gras-masks really

Hey  … Look UP HERE to see the masks.    You.

Mardi Gras themed names may work. I used to use the name “Mardi Gras“, but all of a sudden the name censor says that I cannot use that name!!! What gives? I use “Fat Tuesday” for male Masquerain though. Think of your own Mardi Gras themes … like “Beads“? 

This nice lady will model some Masquerain cosplay, and notice she has the pre-evolved Surskit with her.

I might stare … but I am not frightened away Miss Masquerain!

I have named males “The Red Eye” after the times I had to take the cheaper — but inconvenient “red-eye” overnight air flight.

For Surskit:

I have named them “Sunkist” after the oranges, only because the name is similar. Because of the yellow coloration however “LemonDash” may be more applicable. “Skimmer” is appropriate, since these bugs are based on pond walking insects. I sometimes use “Gams” or “Great Gams”, as this is another name for “legs”. The name “Crazy Legs” has been used in old-timey sports nicknames.  I have used “StickyWicket” after the British expression.

Maybe “Skips” along that line. I think “ScumRunner” is good, 1) because it is a take on “pond scum” that may float around were these pond skimmers walk, and 2) my favorite is “Rumrunner”; a Rum-runner  aka a bootlegger. Actually “Bootlegger” is a good name for these leggy bugs!

As always, if you have a favorite Pokémon nickname, please comment!
