Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

Slide1

This next Pokémon may “Zap” you! Tynamo (in Japanese  シビシラス  “Shibishirasu”) is an Electric-type Pokémon. Tynamo evolves into Eelektrik (in Japanese: シビビール  “Shibibeel”) starting at level 39.

Eelekrik evolves into Eelektross (in Japanese:  シビルドン  “Shibirudon”) only when a Thunderstone is used on it.

I named a Tynamo “Dinah Moe” after the late Frank Zappa’s famous song called “Dinah Moe Hum”. Sometimes I would just name a Tynamo  “Hum” or “Humm” because these words sound somewhat electrical. Here is the song.  It is dirtyIf you can make it all the way through the lyrics I will give you some type of prize.

I think that “Zappa” would also be good for this electric Pokemon — as one may be “Zapped” by electricity. I might suggest the name “FrankZappa” but not many in your generation would know who he was. Frank Zappa was a notable artist. The pop music historian in me does not want go back there very often. Was he Unique? Creative? Progressive? On one hand, he was very subversive. On the other hand he would even make fun of the hippie counter-culture that was his fan base. Zappa-san had about 50 albums, but had only one AM radio hit —  “Valley Girl” sang by his daughter, the actress Moon-Unit Zappa. The YouTube video will link you to other Zappa favorites such as Titties and Beer“, “Broken Hearts Are For Assholes“,  and Bobby Brown Goes Down.  Again, the Zappa songs are filthy — and many would be considered aggressively “homophobic” and “misogynist” in this century.  He could be funny, I will give him that.  He was otherwise astute and was a great guitar player when he wanted to be.

What was I THINKING in the progressive rock era of the 1970s??? Yet I digress once again …

"Kiss my Aura - Dora ..." Maybe Aura Dora would be a good name for female Tynamo.

“Kiss my Aura – Dora …”   Maybe “Aura Dora” would be a good name for female Tynamo?

Indeed we were idiots in the 1970s … I can remember when all my hippie/druggie/biker/ex-military/mill worker/alcoholic buddies would think that Frank Zappa songs were the coolest thing.  They would sit there all smug and knowing. I had to grin and go along with it, because I was so young and did not have a clue. (See lyrics.) I thought that the way these older dudes acted was how the world was supposed to work … but I digress …

Electrik is like an electric eel, but it looks more like a lamprey to me. “Lamps” might be a good name, as lamps give electric light, and it is a lamprey.

I called my Electrik/Eeletross “Erie” or “Eerie” after Lake Erie, and because the word “eerie ” means strange and scary, as the mouths of lampreys (and Frank Zappa fans)are! Sea lampreys are a problematic species of fish that invaded the Great Lakes ecosystem when the St. Lawrence Seaway was built. The lampreys victimize the native fish, latching on and sucking out all their bodily fluids and flesh. (Zappa had an album called “Weasels Ripped My Flesh” , but that is off-topic. I doubt that “SuckingFace” or such — will make it past the new name censor however.“LE EEL” may be odd lettering for a French name. Otherwise, “electrical sounding” names and terminology are appropriate for these electric fish: “J.C. Watts”, “Edison”, “Shelly Shock”, or “Tesla” or some variation are possible.

If you think lampreys are funny, you may want to view this old “Saturday Night Live” sketch. Of course, SNL is even less funny than lampreys. I actually prefer Frank Zappa.
