“Mamas Don’t Let Your Babies Grow Up to be Pokémon Trainers.”
Wailmer (in Japanese: ホエルコ “Hoeruko”) is a Water-type Pokémon.
It evolves into Wailord (in Japanese: ホエルオー “Whaloh”) starting at level 40, where it remains a Water-type.
I name male Wailmer or Wailord “Jennings” or “Waylon” after the late country singer Waylon Jennings.
Beats all you never saw …
Name plays on the “lord” part may also be of interest. For example Wailord could be called “Jack” or “JackLord” after the Hawaii Five-O actor with the seaworthy hair.
Perhaps “Ishmael” would be a good name for a whale, as it would be a Moby Dick reference. Of course you could have called them “Mopey Dick” in the old days before the Pokémon XY name censor came along. Now you have to use “Moby something”. “Jonah” may be another whale reference. I sometimes use “Slick Willy” or “Slick Willie” after Bill Clinton’s press nickname.
There is a great new Wailmer diving graphic you see in Alpha-Omega, so it would be good to teach your whale HM slave moves such as Dive, Waterfall, Surf, Strength.
“Just a little bit more than the law will allow.”
I have named female Wailmer “Wilma” after the old Flintstones cartoon character. I thought it might be good for a lady whale. Also, I use the name “Wynonna” after another country singer – Wynonna Judd.
Now don’t get mad, I am NOT making fun of Ms. Judd’s weight. I like a big country girl. True, she is a big lady, but I think that she is grand.
Alternatively, “Winona” as in the shoplifting actress Winona Ryder is also a good name for a whale.
What is the nickname of your whale?
