Koffing ( in Japanese: ドガース  “Dogars”) is a poison-type Pokémon.

You don’t look addicting at all dear girl. Perhaps there would be no harm in trying it out once or twice.

It evolves into evolves into Weezing (in Japanese: マタドガス  “Matadogas”) when it reaches level 35, where it remains a poison type. Currently, there is not a mega-evolution for Weezing however..

I like to name this Pokémon “LA Smog”. I sometimes just name them “Los Angeles”  after the famously polluted California city. Some players have named a Koffing “New York” and the evolved Weezing “LA” because they are both polluted cities. Los Angeles’ smog is much worse than any east coast city, as southern California in general, and the Los Angeles basin in particular have a unique physical geography which creates temperature inversions which trap air pollution in place.

It may be fun to create a whole Koffing/Weezing team, and name them after world cities which have the worst air pollution. Beijing, Mexico City, etc.

Perhaps “L.A. Woman” after the famous Doors song.

Speaking of California and smog — and weezing: The band called Weezer has this new song called “California Kids.” There is a haze for sure.

Monoxide” might be a good name – particularly for the single ball Koffing — as carbon monoxide is the greatest air pollutant by weight in our urban areas.

Cigarette smoke contains carbon monoxide, which will damage your brain. When Koffing evolves – change it to “Dioxide.

Kids, DO NOT SMOKE. Cigarette smoke contains a chemical which will give you brain damage.

I might prefer names like “Ozone” or “Oh-Three”. The worst part of photo-chemical smog is ozone gas ( O3 or three atoms of oxygen).

“Ball-of-Gasl” or “Gas-Bag” may also be appropriate. Think of TV gasbags like the Keith Olbermann. … or just name it “Olbermann” and assume that the opponent knows that you infer a poisonous gas-bag Pokémon.

Who is your favorite poison gas-bag?

A playful name for weezing might be “Weezy” or “Louise” after the famous character “Weezy Jefferson” from the great 1970s hit sitcom: “The Jeffersons”.

What would you name your smokey orbs? Please comment!
