Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

I love electric-type Pokémon, so it is not so “shocking” that Electrike and Manectric are among my favorite all-time Pokémon.

From Bulbapedia — Electrike (in Japanese: ラクライ  “Rakurai”) is an Electric (only) type.  Electrike evolves into Manectric starting at level 26, where it remains an Electric-only type. Manectric ( in Japanese: ライボルト  “Livolt”) can evolve into Mega Manectric using the Manectite.

The heads on Electrike and Manectric look Egyptian to me. My favorite name for Electrike is “Tutankhamun“, “King Tut” or “Lil’ Tut“. I like to use “Cleopatra” or “Blue Nile” for females.

Female Manectric’s bouffant hair also remind me of the Bride of Frankenstein, so I also like “The Bride“.

The demands of a bride on her wedding day can be a little hair raising I guess. Here’s a clip.

I also like to use meteorological/lightening type names.

Manectric’s hair can be mined for related names. “HairRaising” etc.  My first level 100 Manectric from the original Pokémon Sapphire was “HerrEdison“.

You may be stimulated from the names of my other electric types. See these links for Pachirisu, Blitzle / Zebstrika, Togedemaru, Joltik / GalvantulaHelioptile / Heliodisk and  Electrode / Voltorb .

What is the name for your shocking little dog? Please comment!

  1. I have never caught this guy in the Pokemon games I have played. If I did I would name him Vash. He looks a bit like the spiky haired star of Trigun.
