Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

wisecashwishywashy

Any Whiscash could have made a better choice.

Time is running out for one of my nicknames! My favorite name for Whiscash has always been “Wishy-Washy”, because Whiscash has that big “W” on his head. This November 18th, I will no longer be able to use that name because the OFFICIAL name of a new Sun and Moon Pokémon will be “Wishiwashi” – a native of the Alola Region … but perhaps I am getting ahead of myself.

According to Bulbapedia … Barboach (in Japanese: ドジョッチ  “Dojoach”) is a Water-Ground dual-type Pokémon. Barboach evolves into Whiscash (in Japanese: ナマズン “Namazun”) at level 30, and remains a Water-Ground dual type. There is no known Mega-Evolution. Both Barboach and Whiscash are dubbed “Whiskers Pokemon”. “Whiskers” is certainly an acceptable nickname.

They are both catfish, but Barboach is more of an upstream faster-current catfish, while Whiscash looks more like a bottom feeder.

I always liked to name Whiscash “Wishy-Washy” as in someone who cannot make a decision. This cannot be said of Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who makes her decisions based on identity politics. Her famous quote when nominated for the Supreme Court  — and I am NOT making this up — was “I would hope that a wise Latina with the richness of her experiences would, more often than not, reach a better conclusion than a white male.” … er… nothing wishi-washi about that at all! In honor of that I often name female Whiscash “Stomayor” as it might be a “Wise Catfish“.

I have named male Whiscash “Wiseguy” after the American Mafia term. You can choose any number of “W” names or words.  Male Whiscash could be named “Doubya” after former President Bush 43.

Moe quote:” A wise guy huh? ” … BONK.

Try “Hunter” after baseball legend “Catfish Hunter“. My preferred Barboach name is “Odoroyo Fish” after the great Tsuri Bit song! Sing it girls:

My second favorite Barboach name is “Blackwater“. The Doobie Brothers used to sing about those “catfish jumping”

Barboach names I have used include, “Murky“, “Stillwater“, “Dark Water“, “Barbells“, “Barbs“,  “Barbie-Fish

What is the name of your wise Catfish? Please comment!

  1. […] One of my favorite fish names has always been “Odoroyo Fish” the GREAT 1980s cover song updated by the Japanese idol group Tsuri Bit. Previously, I had only named Barboach/Whiscash “Odoroyo”. Here is a coincidence:  I used to name Whiscash “WishyWashy” because of the “W” on its head — but that is another story. […]
