Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

drawing of inkay

I bet you thought I was going to show an image of squid tentacles going in to all kinds of interesting places, didn’t you?

Inkay (in Japanese: マーイーカ Maaiika” ) is a Dark and Psychic dual-type Pokémon. Inkay evolves into Malamar (in Japanese: カラマネロ  “Calamanero”  starting at level 30 – while your #DS is being held upside down!!!

Squirting ink would just be a bonus.

Malamar remains a DarkPsychic dual type after evolution. There is not a Mega-evolution  yet, but I wonder how this squid could not be at least part Water-type.

I thought that “Mary Kay” would be good for a female Inkay.  Mary-Kay after the famous makeup sales-force.

You like Inkay too? ... lol !

[typing:]  You like Inkay too? … well, L-O-L  !

I called a male Inkay “Dinkay Doo” after the famous Jimmy Durante song “Inka Dinka Doo”.

I have also used the names “Blotter” as in an ink blotter, which may deviate to “Blotto” but perhaps that suits Malamar more so than Inkay. My favorite name for Inkay is “Rorschach”, after the famous ink-blot test psychologists use.

What happened when I went to the psychiatrist? She said she was going to give me the “Rorschach test”, then made me look at all these ink-blot drawings of vaginasInka Dinka Doo alright.

Um ... a vagina? ... a vagina, next one ... a vagina ... vagina, another vagina ...

Um … what do I see … um …a vagina? … a vagina … next one? … a vagina … vagina, um … another vagina …

Malamar looks pretty serious. Otherwise, I think that I might name him “Mallowmar” after the cookie, marshmallow and chocolate treats.  You could name him “Beethoven” as his hair-tentacles make him look like the famous composer. I like the name “Eight Quid” as Malamar has eight tenacles on his head, and the British monetary unit rhymes with “squid”.

Squid-pro-quo, Clarice … Squid-pro-quo!

“SquidProQuo” may be a fun name, as any other Squid-type names you could make. “Squid Kid”, “Billy D Squid” for an Inkay, for example. “India Ink” or “India Inc.” may be fun. Generally, they don’t eat a lot of squid in India however. “Inkwell” as in a reservoir of ink.  Inks and quill pens got me thinking that “John Hancock” might be a clever name, as the American founding father proudly signed his name on the Declaration of Independence with large inky letters.

'I meant to warn you not to ask him for his John Hancock.'

I know that this is an Octopus, not a Squid, but I could not afford an original cartoon.

Please do not name him Squidward after the SpongeBob character. Rather, name it “Ed Squid” or some variant if you have to.

Oddly the sarcastic “Name Rater” web page has not yet posted a name for Inkay or Malamar!

  1. LOL!~! The whole Silence of the Lambs reference too funny…(^q^)!!!!!!!!! Jimmy Durante immediately reminds me of that great Michael J Fox comedy “Greedy”…. albeit that’s the only reason why I know that name =P!
