Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

She took a break from “Pokemon Go” and still attracted a Venonat.

Venonat (in Japanese: コンパン  “Kongpang”) is a BUG & POISON dual-type Pokémon. It is termed the “Insect Pokémon”. That is disappointing, perhaps “Annoying Insect” is to be inferred. Venonat is too big to be a Gnat, which it resembles. Venonat is actually a blood-sucking Mite.

Stop buzzing my ear! You are annoying me dude!

If I want to keep the annoying little bugger a little bugger, I give it an Everstone and use names like: “Vinny” or “CousinVinnie” like in the movie.

“VenyBoomBox” is named after my doctor … My Doctor … Dr. Vinny … Dr.-Vinny-Boom-Box. (The kids always laugh when I say that.)  Actually ,Rodney Dangerfield’s doctor was named Dr. Vinny Boombatz (link here). “Boom Box” might be good for this squat little bug with the antennae, but I usually save that name for an Exploud. “AmazingNat” is another name I use, in reference to “The Amazing Mets” baseball team. Maybe call him “Washington” for the Washington Nats baseball team.

Venonat evolves into Venomoth – the “Poison Moth Pokémon” (in Japanese: モルフォン  “Morphon”) at level 31, where it remains a BUG & POISON type. The Japanese name “Morphon” is actually a decent nickname.

What flavor Poison BTW? I’m thinking sweet Grape Kool-Aid !

In general I name Venomoth names which start with letter “V”, such as “Victoria”.  At first I thought the top of Venomoth’s head was a “V” shaped antennae — it looks like it on the animation sprites of the early generations–  but there are clearly three prongs there.

Veronica” is my favorite name for female Venomoth. This is in honor of Elvis Costello’s grandmother.

“You can name me anything you want … but my name is VERONICA!!

“Here’s the TRICKY PART!!!”

Another “V” name I use for females is “Vanderbilt” or “Vassar” after the expensive women’s colleges for the snotty, self-righteous, privileged classes of all races.  What? … these are both co-ed?

HAIRY vs. SMOOTH? Many people confuse moths with butterflies. There are some key differences.  Butterflies are cute and smooth on the abdomen, (cough) … while most moths are much more fibrous (ahem …), but a hairy thicket can still be enjoyable, and some may find it preferable. Look, both are good. Sometimes you start wanting one when you have had only the other for a long time.  Mix up your team with those who have a smooth thorax versus the delightfully bushy ones.  Note that Venomoth is much bushier — than say a Beautifly.

Which type? I am going to guess “hairy” there, Miss V.

A name I liked from the Name Rater’s website was “Metamothos” for Venomoth, and “Bugzilla” for Venonat. Of course, the NR hated both of them.

What is the name for your hairy moth? Please Comment, or like … or something.

  1. I seen this a lot in Pokemon Go. It does look big for a bug. I’m surprised it becomes Vememoth and changes its shape.

  2. My Cousin Vinnie was a great movie. After reading the hairy/smooth paragraph I will never seen moths and butterflies in the same way ever again.
