Pokémon Nicknames: Audino

audino_gijinka_17_by_ayaluthien-d8kzul7 great

Audino (in Japanese: タブンネ  “Tabunne”) is a Normal-type Pokémon.

Audino is the “hearing” Pokémon. Audino does not evolve from or into any other Pokémon, except that it can Mega-evolve into Mega Audino using the Audinite stone.

I thought that the Mega-evolved Audino looked like it was wearing a lab coat, so I named a female Audino “Dr.Goodhead” after the character Dr. Holly Goodhead in the James Bond movie “MoonRaker”.

Bond ... Goodhead, Goodhead ... Bond.

Bond … Goodhead, Goodhead … Bond.

The “doctor” angle may be appropriate because Audino has been Nurse Joy’s assistant nurse.

Other names I have used: “Dino”, and “Dean-O”  – after the nickname for Dean Martin and other Italian singers. “Tin Ear” – after the early “funnel shaped” hearing aids. Later that term was used for those who are hard of hearing. “Tiffany” – as in the famous jewelry store and the singer. (I would like a Tiffany ear better than a “tin” ear.) It may be obvious to use “Audrey” – because this name sounds like Audino. I use the names for females, however at one time “Audrey” was used as a man’s name.

If you have a male Audino, I suggest the name “Tommy” – after the character in the rock opera by The Who. “Tommy Can You Hear Me?”

The Bulbagarden website has this description for Audino: Its auditory sense is astounding. It has a radar-like ability to understand its surrounding through slight sounds. It touches others with the feelers on its ears, using the sound of their heartbeats to tell how they are feeling.”  This reminds me of the Who’s deaf-dumb-and-blind “Pinball Wizard” and messianic  leader! (A fun scene from the movie Tommy is linked here.)

Another possibility is “Chi” or “Chobits”. Audino’s ears remind me of the female robot character  “Chi” from one of my favorite all-time anime series “Chobits”. Chi’s ears are a lot like Audinos. I wonder if Gamefreak meant Audino to be an homage to Chi.

Remember how Hideki found out where her “ON” button was located?

Perhaps “Chi Audino” , or “Persocom” or some variation of the Chobits/Persocom theme may be fun, especially if you loved that series as much as I did!

I know that it is a little dated now, but when it came out it was way ahead of its time, and the series holds up very well today!

Here is some Pokémon cosplay for lady Audinos.

It is always good to train up in the wild against an Audino. You get a lot of training points for defeating Audino.

If you want to train up your Fighting-type, it is super-effective against Audino’s Normal-type.

What do you call your hearing Pokémon?

Spooky Boogie we hardly knew ye …

PSYCHO-PASS-04-720p.mkv_snapshot_11.31_2012.11.01_22.45.11

I was a big fan of Spooky Boogie.  Count me as one of her millions of her followers on the CommuField.

In general, I am not in favor of anarchy, however our government has become so intrusive into our lives, with these cymatic scans that I am beginning to take Spooky Boogie’s message to heart. I never knew what to expect from her. She was always entertaining. Always kept them guessing … and I loved it how she would stick it to our corrupt government with her sarcastic humor.

So why I am talking about her in the past tense when her popular Internet show is still being broadcast you ask?

I hate to be the one to tell you, but that is NOT the REAL Spooky Boogie! The real Spooky Boogie was created by a lady know as Shoko Sugawara, who mysteriously disappeared a couple of years ago. Have you noticed how everything that Spooky Boogie has been saying the past couple of years has been greatly toned down?  What you have been watching is not the original Spooky Boogie!!!

Yes, the show is still good, but it is a pale shadow of its former self. The character is still “off-the-wall-spooky-crazy” , but she is much less critical of the “big brains” (Denny using sarcasm) we elected.

I’m afraid that someone has gotten to Ms. Sugawara …

So, SPOOKY BOOGIE, I salute you. You were too Spooky and too Boogie for this world : (

Even us old guys can tell that something has happened.

do you think that the net has any effect
