Denny Sinnoh's "Akihabara Starlight"

Oh Fujie, you are so whimsical!

Cottonee (in Japanese: モンメン “Monmen”) is a dual-type Grass/Fairy Pokémon introduced in Pokémon Black and White (Generation V). Prior to Pokémon X -Y (Generation VI), it was a pure Grass-type Pokémon. Cottonee  only evolves when exposed to a Sun Stone.  When it  evolves into Whimsicott (in Japanese: エルフーン “Elfuun”) it remains a Grass/Fairy dual type. Prior to X-YI, it was a pure Grass-type. (Source: Bulbapedia.)

Cottonee is basically a very enthusiastic boll of cotton, thus I like to give it antebellum themed names like “Eli” (for males) or “Whitney” (for females). “Cotton Gin” or “Ginny” are all appropriate names based on Eli Whitney’s invention. Names like “AuntieBellum” , “Mississippi” or “Delta” are also names keeping with the Cotton Belt of the Old South theme.

“Keep your Cotton Pickin’ hands off my Schwinn!”

The “Cotton Bowl” (not boll) is an important college football event in Texas. Dances called “Cotillion” are also characteristic of America’s deep south. These are important social events, and are associated with sorority women’s “coming out”. These formal dance socials are racially segregated of course, as black sororities have traditionally held their own debutante balls.

“Your Debutante knows what you NEED .. but I know what you WANT…”

Thus “Debutante” is another interesting Cottonee name. Of course cotton is “the fabric of our lives”. Somehow that has to be a name if you can get it down to twelve letters. “FabricOfLife” maybe?

You know who wrote the commercial jingle? The very underrated (as a songwriter) Zooey Deschanel. No one understands retro like me and Zooey. Ha! Now it will be stuck in your head all day!

I use completely different names for Whimsicott. My favorite is “Fujita” after the late Japanese tornado meteorologist Theodore Fujita. We owe the “Fujita scale”  of tornadoes to him. It is also appropriate because Whimsicott can use the move “Hurricane” which graphically is NOT a hurricane, as the game animation resembles a tornado. The name “Fuji” (after the apple) or “Fujie” might also be cute. Whimsicott’s Japanese name “Elfuun” — as in Elf Fun — would be a good name for a fairy-type.

What is the name for your whimsical ball of cotton fairy? Please comment.
