Wynaut ( in Japanese: ソーナノ “Sohnano”) is a Psychic-type, “baby” form Pokémon. Wynaut evolves into Wobbuffet (in Japanese: ソーナンス “Sonans”) at level 15. Wynaut requires a special breeding process in order to make an egg. Your Male and female Wobbuffet have to be holding a Lax Incense. It also takes many, many steps to hatch a Wynaut egg.
I named a Wynaut “Nougat” after the wonderful nougat filling that is inside the best candy bars.
Sometimes when I catch and name multiple Pokémon, my mind starts to free-associate. After I named one Wynaut “Nougat” I named the next one “Nugent” after guitarist Ted Nugent. I thought “Restip” might be good, because that thing on the top of his head looks like the “reservoir tip” … if you are one that needs to stop to read the instructions first. I have also seen them named “Shutuup”.
You could name Wobbuffet “Warren” after Warren Buffett, the billionaire investor who tries to buy elections. I would prefer to name it “Jimmy” after singer Jimmy Buffett.
I named a female Wobbuffet “Squeezebox” after the 1976 single by The Who. I’m not sure why. This was one of the cases when it just made sense to me.
Pokémon cosplay: “Squeeze me …”
I named another Wynaut “Whip Itt” because of its long ears (arms) which look like they could whip around. (While I listen to the DEVO song.)
What is your favotite nickname for Wynaut or Wobbuffet?

I can always justify eating sweets whenever I say “Oh, that would be good with morning coffee”. That way it does not make me a glutton for candy bar nougat .. so much … because I’m just having coffee.
