Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

shirley-temple-inspiration

We all know that you see a lot of Wurmple on the Wondertrade.  It looks like everyone who catches one in the early game of Alpha/Omega just puts them out without teaching it any extra moves, let alone leveling it up.  It is often holding a Pecha berry in the wild. Wondertraders apparently do not care, and send it out without obtaining that special poison-cure Wurmple holds.

Wurmple (in Japanese: ケムッソ  “Kemusso”) is a Bug-type Pokémon, and is known as “the worm Pokémon” although it looks more like a caterpillar. Wurmple is listed as the 4th weakest Pokémon out of all 721, so it is not surprising that it is wonder-traded so often.

Wurmple will evolve however. It will evolve into either Silcoon or Cascoon starting at level 7. This depends on the Pokémon’s personality value.  Personality values cannot be influenced or seen by the trainer, thus what any given Wurmple will ultimately evolve into is essentially random!

Above level 10, Silcoon will evolve into Beautifly. Cascoon will evolve into Dustox. You could name the Pokémon something for when it will become your butterfly or moth, or you can just change later. it at the Name-Rater’s house.

My favorite nickname for female Wurmple is “Shirley” as in the late Shirley Temple, the famous child-actress, known for her cute song “The Good Ship Lolipop”.

This Loli should not let her spikey little bug evolve.

Alternatively you could name it “Hemple”, after 1970s TV sitcom actress Shirley Hemphill. “Hemphill” may actually be a pretty good name.  A scene with the late Ms. Hemphill is linked here.

Shirley from the “Whats Happening” TV show.

I name the males something like “Munchies” because caterpillars must eat a lot of vegetation before they begin their metamorphosis. Perhaps “Pre-Op” might be good, as the Pokémon is about to go through some changes. “LittleFriend” might be good, as in the famous line from the movie Scarface: “Say hello to my little friend!” Imagine the trainer saying that as they throw out the Poké ball.

I like my little Shirley. I’m going to level Shirley up to level 100, then we will see who in Kalos might get a poison-sting surprise.

What is the name for your caterpillar-worm? Please comment.

  1. I feel bad for the unloved Pokemon everyone tries to wonder trade away. I don’t think I was ever given this guy, but I did receive a ton of Luvdiscs.
