Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

PHIL_LYNOTT's sable eyes

Sableye ( in Japanese: ヤミラミ  “Yamirami”) is a Dark and Ghost Pokémon. Sableye does not evolve from any other form, nor does it evolve except that it can temporarily mega-evolve into Mega Sableye using the Sablenite stone.

Sableye is a cave troll or gremlin that has jewels for eyes. I always thought that this Pokémon looked like an evil version of a leprechaun. The Japanese name “Yamirami” is already a pretty good name, but I named my male Sableye “Black Irish”. I used the special “clubs” symbol with the name, because that would be the closest you can get to a Shamrock.

I think that this kickname makes Sableye a little more lovable. He is dark purple, not black, but sometimes black is so black that it becomes blue, you know. (think Superman’s hair).

When I think of Black Irishmen, I am reminded of the late, great Phil Lynott of the Dublin, Ireland group Thin Lizzy. Phil was a mixed race Black Irishman.

The band was also a good example of “mixed” background as well. Members were from both sides of the Irish border, and included both Catholic and Protestant Irish.

That the band formed at all was notable during “the Troubles”.

From Wikipedia:  “Irish critic John Dougan wrote that the band’s creative force, Lynott was a more insightful and intelligent writer than many of his ilk, preferring slice-of-life working-class dramas of love and hate influenced by Bob Dylan, Van Morrison, Bruce Springsteen, and virtually all of the Irish literary tradition. Jeff Beck and Jimi Hendrix were major influences during the early days of the band.”


“Remember that chick that used to dance a lot? Every night she would be on the floor shakin what she got. Man, I tell you she was cool … she was red-hot … I mean she was steamin’! … and that time over at Johnny’s place, this chick got up and she slapped Johnny’s face! Man, we just fell about the place …”


“Friday night they’ll be dressed to kill … down at Dino’s Bar-and-Grill. The drink will flow and the blood will spill, and if the boys want to fight you better let ‘em!”


“Spread the word around … get your knickers … down …”

Another possible track may be “Saber-Eye“. I have seen then named “Noir” after the phrase “film noir”. “Dark Troll“, or “Darth Troll” may be used.

FamilyJewels” will fit, if you are playful. You could just name it after a jewel such as one user did: “Amethyst
