My daughter Sakura looks lovely in that white Russian seal-fur hat doesn’t she?

Ahem … The HAT, gentlemen.

Seel (in Japanese: パウワウ  “Pawou”) is a Water-type Pokémon. It is known as “the Sea Lion” Pokémon. Seel evolves into another “Sea Lion” —  Dewgong (in Japanese: ジュゴン  “Jugon”) at level 34, where it becomes a dual type Water-Ice Pokémon.

Seel and Dewgong join the group of other pinniped Pokemon. Spheal (another seal), Sealeo (another sea lion) and Walrein (a walrus). All of these are water-ice types so nicknames could probably overlap and be interchangeable. Perhaps Dewgong is supposed to be the spirit of — not a sea lion – but a manatee. You often see a Dewgong perched on rocks. The sirens or mermaids of nautical lore were thought to be actually manatee. It is said that confused and lonely sailors thought they looked pretty good.

(calling) … come along … to my Dewgong …

I like to teach water & ice-types both of the moves Scald and Ice Beam  You can freeze an enemy solid, then help them out by burning them with hot water. Seel and Dewgong both closely resemble their real-life animal counterpart. Most trainers don’t get too excited about them. Seel is basically a seal. The Pokémon do have a single horn on their head however. I have to wonder if the designers were doing a take on Narwhals, which have a single horn. Perhaps there may be a cool looking “mega-evolved” Dewgong someday, but I think that Samurout already has the “battle-seal” image done already.

My favorite name for Dewgong is “WhiteRussian” which just makes it in at 12 letters.

Mmmm …White Russians. I used to love that Kahlua drink (recipe linked here). When my friends and I were out drinking, I used to call it “the old moloko” just like I was a character from the novel/movie A Clockwork Orange, drinking at The Korova Milk Bar. What?

True fact: Korova is Russian for Cow, but maybe save that name for Milktank.

Of course I was lame. Look, we didn’t have the Internet in the late 1970s. If you wanted to look something up you had to use an encyclopedia … and I know I digress.

Keeping with the Russian or Siberia theme, I have also used the name “Zhivago” after the novel/film Doctor Zhivago.

The other name I like is “Bering” after the sea which lies between Russia and North America. Of course Russian seal hunters have always used that waterway. “Murmansk” is another ice-free Russian port. I have used “In-The-Navy” (with the music note symbol).

I like “Slip” or “Slips” for a Seel, because seals are slippery, and I always liked The Bowery Boys character Slip Mahoney.

I also like the name “Ding Dongs” for Dewgong after the wonderful Hostess treat. You know what? I used to eat Hostess Ding Dongs after a night of binge drinking White Russians! They would “sweeten you right up — and get you ready for the old ultraviolet” … or there about.

Others: Seel names I have seen other players use include: Clubby, Snowball and Sugar. These are all cute names.

Darn it, I lost the scene where Ash trains Dewgong.

What is the name for your slippery seal? Please Comment!

Anthony Burgess reviews my new Watarirouka Hashiritai Farewell Concert DVD

“What’s it going to be then, eh?”

“This must be a real horrorshow film if you're so keen on my viddying it."

“This must be a real horrorshow film if you’re so keen on my viddying it.”

What are you spinning your warbles to these days droogies?  Johnny Zhivago? Heaven Seventeen? Well come with UNCLE! … Come and hear all PROPER!

My droog Denny lent me Watarirouka Hashiritai final concert DVD.  Oh, my brothers, it was gorgeousness and gorgeosity made flesh. I viddied that American thinking is for the gloopy ones and that the oomny ones use like inspiration and what Bog sends. For now it was lovely Watarirouka Hashiritai music that came to my aid.  Oh, it was wonder of wonders.

“It's funny how the colors of the real world only seem really real when you watch them on a screen.”

“It’s funny how the colors of the real world only seem really real when you watch them on a screen.”

Haruka Nagagawa crunched redgold under my bed, and behind my gulliver the sounds of Ayaka Kikuchi, Aika Oota and Mika Komori trumpeed three-wise silverflamed, and there by the door Kazumi Urano rolling through my guts and out again crunched like candy thunder.

Glazzies on Haruka only here: Viddy well brother … VIDDY WELL!

Mika Komori bored deep, like worms of like platinum, into the thick thick toffee gold and silver. I was in such bliss, my brothers.And then, a bird of like rarest spun heavenmetal, or like silvery wine flowing in a spaceship, gravity all nonsense now, came the Mayu Wananabe solo above all the other watarirouka strings, and those strings were like a cage of silk round my bed.

Mayus lips were like red, red kroovy ...

The lips of Mayu were like red, red kroovy …

Then, brothers, it came. Oh, bliss, bliss and heaven.  Like a GREAT BIRD – the solo by  Iwasa Misaki.

Oh, Bog in heaven what pretty pictures I dreamed

O, Bog in heaven what pretty pictures I imagined

I lay all nagoy to the ceiling, my gulliver on my rookers on the pillow, glazzies closed, rot open in bliss, slooshying the sluice of lovely sounds. Oh, it made me dream such pretty pictures, my brothers.

IT’S A SIN! The Watarirouka Hashiritai 7 to be disbanded? IT’S A SIN!!!!!!

But where I itty now, O my brothers, is all on my oddy knocky, where you cannot go. Tomorrow is all like sweet flowers and the turning vonny earth and the stars and the old Luna up there. … and all that cal.

Something organic that Bog tugs away free will?  Real horrorshow.

Cured?  I was cured alright.
