Planned Pokémon Nicknames: Alcremie

Planned Pokémon Nicknames: Alcremie

I am writing this draft in late-July, in anticipation of more Sword and Shield updates. Please check back with me after November 15 for more suggestions. All my anticipated and suggested nicknames follow the 12-character limit consistent with Pokémon Generations VI and VII.

Alcremie (in Japanese: マホイップ  “Mahoippu”) is a Fairy-type Pokémon to be introduced in the Galar Region (Generation VIII). Reference: From Bulbapedia.

The English name appears to be a combination of the words Alchemy, Cream and Cutie. Alchemy was a “magical” style of chemistry which preceded modern science. Thus, a Fairy-type is reasonable.  Otherwise Alcremie looks like a pile of whipped cream or soft-serve vanilla ice cream. It has strawberries on either side of its head. I do like my creamy desserts, I think that they are soothing. In fact, early descriptions of Alcremie say that its “cream has an incredibly soothing effect which can cause an opponent to rapidly lose its will to battle when eaten.” (Source: Pokéfandom webpage.)

Alcremie is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon at this writing. However, it looks like it will be able to transform into a huge, cream frosted cake in its Gigantimax form.

This surprise cake puts me in mind of all those “Mad Men” era bachelor parties, where a pretty girl would jump out of a large party cake. It is yet another trope, lost in the 20th century.

The joke was that as the groom-to-be and his bachelor friends were having an innocent ice cream-and-cake party, someone would roll out this giant cake. Only instead of icing inside — a naked girl would jump out, surprising the poor groom on his last night of strange desserts. Oh … but I digress …

Unfortunately, Alcremie has been receiving some Internet hate. Fans are blaming Game Freak for not being creative enough. There were already “ice cream” Pokémon: VanilliteVanillish and Vanilluxe were already ice creams introduced in the Unova Region. Furthermore, there were already French pastry Pokémon in Kalos – Slurpuff and Swirlix. (Image credit goes to the original artists below)

Really Gamefreak – another Ice Cream Pokémon?” they say. Never mind the hate. I like the idea of this strawberry shortcake Pokémon. I look forward to bringing out that big ice cream and cake surprise! I could probably recycle some of my Vanillite line names. “Dairy Queen“, “Tastee-Freez” and the like, after those roadside ice cream shops that are a big part of Americana.

Some of you might remember the old “Strawberry Shortcake” character that was marketed to young girls in the 1980s. Thus “Shortcakes” is an obvious name. I plan on naming my Alcremie “Berry Panic” because of its fruit berries. The panic part refers to the famous Yuri manga and anime “Strawberry Panic”. I actually have a theory about how a strawberry can panic.

Others:

Chantilly” after the term for the French version of whipped cream topping. Plus, it is a nice sweet, girly name, perfect for the Galar Region.

ERCJCKGNGR” or “JckGngrErc” is an odd name, but I mean this as an abbreviation of “Eric Jack Ginger” who were the original British Cream.

What will you call your sweet creamy short cakes? Please comment.

Pokémon Nicknames: Sword and Shield (anticipation) — Corviknight

Quoth the Raven: “No way man”.

We still have a long way to go until November 15, but I will still speculate about the upcoming Sword and Shield Pokémon and think of some more nicknames, assuming we will still have the 12-charcater limit.

From BulbapediaCorviknight (in Japanese: アーマーガア  “Āmāgā”) is a dual-type Flying/Steel Pokémon introduced in the Galar Region (Generation VIII). As of this writing, it is not known to evolve into or from any other Pokémon.

This black bird is called the “Raven Pokémon”. Its abilities are said to be Pressure and Unnerve.  Coviknight looks like a crow, and (according to Bulbapedia) may be based on the European Jackdaw, another member of the crow family Corvidae. This family includes the crows, ravens, rooks, jackdaws, jays, and magpies. Collectively, this group of birds are called cordovans, hence that part of Corviknight’s name. The “knight” part is for the “Black Knight” I suppose.

I think that a great name for this black flying steel bird would be “SR-71” after Lockheed’s famous “Blackbird” supersonic stealthy spy plane. Additionally, “Lockheed” might be a good aviation name for Corviknight.  According to Sw&Sh leaks, Corviknight is supposed to be the “fly” Pokémon which will take the player form one point to another.

The SR-71’s official speed record of 2,193.13 mph (Mach 3.2) has stood for nearly 40 years. It could fly from New York to London in less than two hours. Unova to Galar.

Guess where the Blackbird was first flight tested? (Denny coughs) Area 51. That secret American air force base that has been hot on social media these past weeks. Thus, “Stealth”, “Intrigue” and “Enigma” may also be interesting Corviknight names. “Black Truth” – is the opposite of “White Lies”. Can you handle the truth? Galar’s steel blacbird knigth might be well armored, but it will probably not be super fast. There has ben some speculation that Corviknight may be related to Pokémon’s other flying-steel type Skarmory.

Of course, if Corviknight is a Raven, then you have to give one names based on Edgar Allan Poe’s famous poem. I think I will name one “Nevermore”. “Lenore” – perhaps for a female form, again as an Edgar Allan Poe reference.

Other names: “Baltimore” because the Raven’s NFL Team plays there. You have to wonder why the name “ravens” was chosen for a football team. Of course, Edgar Allan Poe lived (and drank) in Baltimore, but no one has ever confused the NFL with literacy. The Raven’s cheer squad is striking however:

Of course there is the Ravens logo on these uniforms. You may have to explore.

Aside from the Raven Cheerleaders, Baltimore is actually a terrible city. There is a lot of crime, a lot of drugs and it is poorly administrated. Baltimore’s crime is actually a lot more scary than any of Edgar Allan’s poems. But I digress … Perhaps you could name Corviknight about a decayed postindustrial city similar to Baltimore in the British (Galar) region? You would likely want a more heroic name.

How about “Switchblade” after all the knife attacks in British cities these days.

Dead Knight” as a take on the phrase “dead of night”. Take these broken wings and learn to fly

HeckleJeckle” after the famous magpie cartoon duo (old chum).

There is not a lot of Coviknight cosplay yet, so we will have to make due with these raven and crow costumes. Did you know that a flock of crows is called “a murder of crows“?

Recycled Names: I used to use names like “Caw Caw Caw“, “Edgar Allan” or “4 -AND-20” for Murkrow and Honchkrow. Four-and-Twenty was for the nursery rhyme about the four and twenty blackbirds baked in a pie. I used to name a Murkrow “Eat-My-Pie” then wonder-trade it.

What is the name for your steel blackbird? Please Comment!

 

“Count what you have now, Don’t count what you don’t have”

“Count what you have now, Don’t count what you don’t have …”

That’s right Mariya! Although my blogging pace has slowed down the past couple of years, I have noticed from my click counter that “Denny Sinnoh’s Akihabara Starlight” is now up to close to a HALF-MILLION reads!!! It should go over 500,000 this weekend. Look to my sidebar to the right under “blog stats”. See if YOUR CLICK is the one that pushes me over 500 K!

Thank you WordPress readers! Of course some bloggers have millions of reads, but I am happy whith what I have counted here, thus I want to share this song. At my “day job” of processing agricultural chemical request orders, I sometimes have to write up technical reports. These tech papers are only read by about maybe five people or so. I have to feel good that my writing has been seen by half-a-million humans and their bot minions. Special Thanks to YT user Artzie Music for sharing this song.

Pokémon Nicknames: Sword and Shield — Rolycoly

Dig deep in order to find the biggest nuggets!

 Pokémon Nicknames: Sword and Shield — Rolycoly. More Galar Region Pokémon are  leaked!

Rolycoly (in Japanese: タンドン  “Tandon”) is a Rock-type Pokémon introduced in Generation VIII. I have to believe that this “Coal Pokémon” of the Galar Region will have at least two more evolutions, but we will have to wait see. According to the latest leaks, Rolycoly is not known to evolve into or from any other form. Reference: Bulbapedia. Rolycoly (which I think is based off of the name “Roly Poly”) is basically a lump of coal with an orange eye. Is it some type of fire? Will it be able to learn the move “Ember”?

From Pokémon DataBase“Rolycoly has no problem dashing through dark areas or rough terrain. Its red eye can illuminate dark areas, while it uses the lump of coal attached to its body like a wheel to move through coal mines and caves. It seems to be able to travel smoothly even over rough terrain.” It looks like it has a wheel underneath, which moves like a coal kart.

Another description is from Pokémon Wiki“In times past, the entire population of families living in the Galar region would use pieces of coal dropped by Rolycoly as a heat source for cooking food and keeping houses warm. Even today, people would bring along Rolycoly during outdoor activities”. Coal was the major home-heating fuel for much of British history, until pollution laws were passed against it. Here’s a name: “London Smog” after London Fog.

If you have ever seen the Irish film “My Left Foot” there is this scene where a coal lorry driver so that a few pieces of coal can be nicked.

Ahem, if you are going to travel in the Galar region, you better get used to calling a truck a “lorry” and “to nick” is to steal something. Ha, I can speak this Galar dialect – here goes — “Did you nick my gelt, you wanker?”  … but I digress. The puts me in mind of the Elvis Costello song: “Coal Train Robberies”.  The poor classes in Ireland were so desperate that they had to steal coal to survive.

Some names could be derived from Rolycoly’s abilities. It has the unique ability Steam Engine, which increases Rolycoly’s speed stat if hit by a Fire or Water-type attack. Consider the name “SteamChunk” after the “Steampunk” genre – or just call it “Steam Punk”.

This steampunk is a coal miner — not a coal minor.

It also has the ability Heatproof, an ability which makes it take less damage from Fire-type attacks.  Thus, “Hot-N-Heavy” – because it is a rock type of fuel. It is heavy, but it burns hot. Also the expression means an intense, active, or exciting relationship.

Be Tea You” or “B.T.U.” – might be good for a Galar Region Pokémon. This is after the term BTU or British Thermal Units, the measure of the heat content of a fuel.

Rutherford” – after the TV character “Lumpy Rutherford”. Because Rolycoly is a big lump of coal.

Loretta” — after Loretta Lynn, country music legend and famous for being a “Coal Miners’s Daughter“.

Bad X-Mas” or even just “Christmas“. Of course if you were naughty all year, Santa will only give you a lump of coal in your stocking.

If you are a loss for what to name coal, then you could just call it the names for the ranks of coal: “Anthracite”, “Bituminous” or “Lignite”. I like “Lignite Mike“.

Others:

Ashes2Ashes” – is what happens to you if you fight this coal Pokemon!

Pete Peat” – because peat is an earlier form of coal, but you need to wait a million years.

Paleozoic” – after the geologic era containing the Carboniferous Period. Earth was covered with many swamps, which formed much of the coal we use today.

Coke” but not America’s favorite soda beverage. Coke as in “coking coal” a processed coal used for steelmaking. Maybe “MyCokeBloke” becuase Englishmen call each other “blokes”.

Sheffield” as in the English industrial city, where the historic steel making insustry was concentrated. Of course, the industrial revolution began in Britain, but today the country no longer manufactures anything.

Wigan” as in George Orwell’s book “The Road to Wigan Pier“. Those poor people in that mining town … and you thought your job sucked.

Holy Roller” because you have to have some rolling names.

Rolling Rock” — after the beer popular with Pennsylvanian mine and industry workers. Despite the label, it does NOT taste like that.

I will suggst more names when it is known what Rolycoly evolves into … until then:

What is the name of your little lump? Please comment.

Pokémon Nicknames: Sword and Shield (anticipation) — Drednaw

Be very carefu with Snapping Turtles: These turtles will snap their mouth on you and gnaw your bone!

Pokémon Sword and Shield  — DREDNAW. Even though the Sw&Sh game does not come out until November 15, I am playing around with more nicknames for Galar Pokémon. (Get used to having Pokémon only playable in the Galar region, I guess.) I am going to continue to assume that we will still have the 12-character limit. If future Switch Pokémon games allow for more characters, this would greatly change the dynamic of Poké-naming.

Info based on BulbapediaDrednaw (in Japanese: カジリガメ  “Kajirigame”) will be a dual-type Water/Rock Pokémon. (It is not presently known if it will evolve into or from any other Pokémon.*) Drednaw is in the “Bite Pokémon” category — “Its jagged teeth allow it to bite chunks out of rock and iron”. This could be the “gnaw” part of its name as well. Its abilities are Strong Jaw or Shell Armor. 

I plan on calling my Drednaw “Dreadnought” or “Dreadnaught”. A dreadnought is a class of battleship introduced in the early 20th century. These ships were larger and faster than its predecessors and equipped entirely with large-caliber guns.

By U.S. Navy – U.S. Naval Historical Center, Public Domain, https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?curid=443982

Fitingly, it would be good id Drednaw can learn shooting moves like “Bullet Seed” or water shooting moves like “Scald”. This name for this class of warships stems from archaic English in which “dreadnought” means “a fearless person” or “a heavy overcoat used for stormy weather”. Obviously. a fearless turtle water-type can weather a fierce storm. The word Dreadnought comes up in other English vernacular. The word also means a special type of guitar (link here).

Another name that resonates with Dreadnought/Dreadnaught might be “Loves-Me-Not”. My rationale for that is that various Poké leaks have said that “Drednaw possesses a vicious nature, so it can only be tamed by the most experienced trainers.” Perhaps the move “Frustration” would be perfect to teach this naughty turtle early on. (Ahem, although the whole “She-Loves-Me”, “Loves-Me-Not”, trope (video here) would probably be best reserved for a flower Pokemon, such as Gossifleur.

“Frustration”? … What is not to LIKE?!?

Lockjaw” might be a good name for this tenacious biting Pokémon, particularly for ones with the Strong-Jaw ability. Lockjaw, is of course associated as being side effect of Tetanus. Come to think of it, perhaps “Tetanus” or some variation is another name for a tenacious tetrapod!

Other names I am considering.

Fracking” – after the mining method; where shale bedrock is forcibly cracked with pressurized water, in order to break the rock, and release fossil gas or oil. Alternative “Frack” names might be good: “Frack-It” or “Frack ‘Em“.

Gnaw D. Bone” – after the dining situation where a pork chop is so good, that you have to pick it up with your hands in order to bite off every piece of meat clinging to the bone. (Vegans or female trainers please disregard.)

RealityBites” – after the movie … or really anything that you do not like – or have said “that bites” … or “Bite This“.

The Pokemon may be partially based on aquatic snapping-turtles,

… so “Snap” “Snip” or “Swipe” names may appeal to you:

Snippy” — as in “don’t get snippy with me”.

Snapper O” after the character Harry “Snapper” Organs from the famous “Pirahna Brothers” Monty Python sketch.

Swipe Left” — because of the phrase “swipe left” .  The term was first used to reject potential dating partners on the infamous dating app, Tinder. (A funny link here. Oy, the “Frustration” move again.) The phrase has devolped over time, and now describes anything remotely ugly or detestable. For example: “Anchovies on on pizza? Ughh, swipe left.”

What is your suggested name for a biting little water-rock turtle? Please comment.

*You will be able to catch  one during a “”Max Raid” and then Dynamax it!

Pokémon Nicknames: Sword and Shield Suggestions — Wooloo

Of course I am psyched to play the new Pokémon Sword and Shield this fall! There has been a limited release of what the new Galar Region (Generation VIII) Pokémon will be, but one that seems to very popular already is Wooloo, the “Sheep Pokémon”.

Name him ” FW Woolworth “

Wooloo (in Japanese: ウールー  “Ūrū” ) will be a NORMAL-Type, and according to leaks (official and otherwise) this sheep will be encountered in the early game play of the new region. Its abilities will be either Fluffy or Run Away. Right now, It is not known if Wooloo will evolve into or from any other form — although it can be used in Dynamax form. Bulbapedia will add updates as updated information on the new game becomes available. Wooloo is a cute, round lamb. it appears to be able to roll.

Perhaps “Rollout” will be one of the moves that it can learn. Wooloo also has two woolen braids or pigtails. The sheep must be yound, as its horns are just small nubs right now. If this Pokémon evolves, perhaps it will have larger ram-like horns in the final form.

Wooloo is popular, and has stimulated early cosplay even though the game is not out for months! (Credit goes to these artists.)

There are plenty of cool Wooloo memes as well. Please enjoy this short set. (Credit goes to the original artists.)

I have two favorite nicknames already planned! I will use “Imbolc” for a female Wooloo, and “Woolworth” for a male. Allow me to explain … Woolworth is the name of a famous American department store chain of the “five and dime” variety. The company is no longer in business. Everyone in my age-group remembers shopping at Woolworth’s. They even had a lunch counter.

Imbolc is the name of a Celtic holiday, midway between the winter solstice and the spring equinox. It is also known as Saint Brigid’s Day. You Americans know this date as Groundhog Day. One meaning of Imbolc is “in the belly” and it refers to ewe’s milk. Imbolc was originally a pagan celebration (and is still celebrated by modern day Druids and Wiccans). One tale says that Brigid saved lives by providing ewe’s milk.

The pagan goddess became the Catholic saint after Christianity spread to the Celtic regions of the British Isles. Indeed, a cute name for this ewe might be “Brigid” — as it is certainly appropriate for Sword and Shield’s British “Galar” Region. You can find your own way to celebrate it. It might be fun to use names and words from Celtic languages for many of your Galar Pokémon! The Welsh word for wool is “Gwlân”.  The English phrase “dyed in the wool” is “Daiteiolann” in Irish Gaelic.

I will probably catch many of these sheep, so here are some other names, and some of the cultural references. (You can come up with your own variations and derivations.)

Normie” – because it is a normal type. I have used the name for various normal while playing past games. I don’t expect the normies to understand. Ha.

Pipi” or “Longsocks” – after the book and movie “Pipi Longstockings”. For that matter, you could just name some of these sheep Pokémon “Socks” or “Undies” if you have those garments made out of wool. Wooloo’s braids look like the character.

Yodle-A-eHoo” – because Switzerland has a lot of sheep too! Plus the braids on Wooloo look like the “Swiss Miss” brand cocoa label.

Slaughter” – is a last name. Also I was thinking of “The Slaughtered Lamb” tavern from the movie “An American Werewolf in London”.

“Pet-Me-Peta” – after the animal-rights organization.

Flock-N-Roll” – as a take on the name of the musical genre rock-and-roll.

Woolio” – after the rapper Coolio, who had similar-looking pigtails. Or maybe I am thinking of Snoopdog. Shoot I don’t know — I can’t tell the difference between those bigoted idiots. I don’t listen to that awful stuff anyway.

Wooly Bully” after the Pharaos hit song from the early-1960s.

Ewe B Forty” – after the British reggae-pup group UB40. There are probable other “Ewe” names you could play with. “Ewe Turn” might be good for this rolling sheep.

Sheepdip” — after the process.

Virgin Wool” – if it is important to you that you are the first to dye and weave the sheerings by yourself. Is that really a big deal?

Shear-Luck” – because my mind is wandering …

Ewes Woolite” — is laundry advice to use the detergent especially formulated for wool.

Dolly” — after the name of the sheep which was the first cloned mammal. Cloning … that’s pretty wild. It is hard to believe that there could be a big herd of sheep someplace that all look alike.

Fleece This!” – what you could say when someone tries to steal your fleece, and you kick them in the down-under. Speaking of “down under” could there be a lot of lonely shepherd memes from Australia and New Zealand?

Recycled Names: I have some sheep-names on my old post about Mareep. How does a sheep say the name Barbara? “Baa Bara“. You could also consider goat-names I used for Gogoat because sheep and goats are similar herd animals, and both species can be milked. The British food delicaciesHeadcheese” or “Head Jam” are suggestions.

Yup, someone needs a good milking alright!

What will you name your little ball of wool? Please comment!

Check back with me after November 15 — I will have more nicknames for you to evaluate. Counting sheep until then : ) 

Pokémon Nicknames: Sword and Shield starters — Sobble

Apologies if I have been holding you up with the fire and grass starters —

Let us now transition to our Sword and Shield water type starter: Sobble

Sobble is going to be a lizard/chameleon Pokémon. The trailer shows that it becomes invisible or blends in with its surroundings like a chameleon.

I like the name “PonceDeLeon” after Juan Ponce de Leon, the Spanish explorer who famously searched Florida for the “Fountain of Youth”. (We all know that’s not real history kids. He was a Conquistador.)  How about “Three Coins” after “Three Coins in the Fountain”.

A water-squirting lizard/chameleon? I might be able to recycle names I have already used for Squirtle – such as “Wet Willie”, “I.P.Nightly” or “I.P.Freely”. Perhaps I could recycle Kecleon names – such as “Zelig”.

I may use “Sorbét” – after the frozen dessert made from sweetened, flavored water. Americans know it as “Sherbert”.

I noticed that a lot of the cosplayers show Sobble with a sad face or crying. Could that be some type of power in the game? There is no need to cry my little julep. “Julep” or “Mint Julep” might fit this bluish water-type.

Blue Bayou” is after the Linda Ronstant song and the water park.

The name “Mystique” could be in honor of the X-Men character.

Watersport” might be a fun name … if you like watersports. Ha.

I think I will name him “Spitball” since it is a tricky and wet baseball pitch, designed to deceive – Just like a water chameleon. Sobble is shown using a “water gun” like move in the S/S preview trailer (MAY NOT BE ACTUAL GAMEPLAY – HELLO?). Maybe the name “Gaylord” as in Gaylord Perry master of the spitball pitch … but perhaps I digress.

Here is an interesting one to consider: “Buys Ballot”.  Indeed it would be sneaky to use another person’s vote, however that is not what the name means. It is pronounced boos beylo after the Dutch meteorologist CHD Buys Ballot. The concept is useful when determining wind direction at sea … and yes, I digress once again.

It makes me feel like a kid … but I can’t wait for this game!

I hope you will check back to my blog this November 15, when I will have more nicknames for you to evaluate.
