Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

Wingull (in Japanese: キャモメ “Camome”) is a WATER and FLYING dual-type Pokémon. Wingull evolves into Pelipper (in Japanese: ペリッパー  “Pelipper”) when raised to level 25, where it remains a  WATER and FLYING dual-type.

Among my favorite names for Wingull are “Jonathan” or “Livingston” after the philosophical book (and later movie) by Richard Bach called “Jonathan Livingston Seagull.”  Trailer linked here.

Sure it was thought provoking.  I read it and thought — “What? .. he what? … you wanna what?”

“The gull sees farthest who flies highest” ― Richard Bach, Jonathan Livingston Seagull

I also like to name them “Top Gun” (and also use the star-symbol), after the 1980s movie of the same name. Wingull usually knows “Water Gun” which is one of the cutest Pokémon moves, although I eventually replace it with stronger moves like “Water Pulse” or “Scald”. I put one out on the Wondertrade named “She Squirts”.

I also used the names for coastal places where there are a lot of seabirds. A good name for Wingull is “Nantucket” after the island and the famous dirty limerick.

If you are a student of American comedy history, you can appreciate the names “Gertrude” and “Heathcliff” after the famous comedy bit by the late-great comedy legend Red Skelton.

Another possible Wingull name is “MineMineMine” which was what the seagulls were calling in the movie Finding Nemo“.

I have named Pelipper “Skipper” after the Skipper from the Giligan’s Island TV show. Once I went on a theme-naming spree, and named Pelipper “Alan Hale”. You could make a Double-Battle team with a Pelipper  and a Wingull named “The Skipper” and “Little Buddy”. Of course, your opponent would have to be familiar with that 1960s TV show.

A good name for a male Pelipper would be “Charleston” after the beautiful South Carolina city. You may want to use other coastal names where pelicans live. Perhaps “Carolina” or “Myrtle” after the staes or the town of Myrtyle Beach.

A name that would work fro female Wingull/Pelipper is “Gullah” the name of the dialect spoken by the African-American residents of the “Sea Islands” region of Georgia. The dialect was preserved due to the island’s relative isolation from the rest of Georgia.

The people who speak the dialect are sometimes referred to as “Geechee” – but be careful – the word has been used as derogatory slur. You might use this Pokemon name, but do so only to honor the unique historical culture of the region.

See you in Charleston, Gullah!

  1. Clever names, although I don’t think Nintendo would approve of She Squirts being sent to the Wondertrade.
