Pokémon Nicknames: Drowzee and Hypno

Barbara Drowzee

Babs doing one of her “Psychic” moves.

I nicknamed a female Drowzee “Barbara” (and another one “Streisand”) after the famous American singer Barbara Streisand.  Drowzee has a nose like a tapir. It is a Psychic-type that may put its opponent to sleep with its Hypnosis move, then can then devour the victim’s dreams using the “Dream Eater”move.  Oddly, Drowzee cannot learn the Normal move “Sing” which also puts the target to sleep.  Too bad, because that move would have been perfect for my Barbara!

Drowzee

I might suggest naming male Drowzees “Durante” after the famous vaudevillian actor.  Although Jimmy Durante had a schnoz like Drowzee, the great Mr. D never put me to sleep.

Best song “And You Goils Thought My Nose Was Big”

I think that “Geddy” would be a good name for a male. Named after Geddy Lee, singer and bassist for the Canadian rock band RUSH. “Props to the nose!”

Drowsee also looks like its pants were dipped in chocolate … like a chocolate covered banana.

Drowzee may be based on ancient East Asian legends about dream eaters. Drowzee resembles a Baku (spirit) that appears in Japanese mythology and art.

“Baku” by Katsushika Hokusai

The following is from the Pokémon FireRed description of Drowzee: “A descendant of the legendary animal Baku, which is said to eat dreams. It is skilled at hypnotism.”  “Baku” might be a fun nickname for males or females!

Unfortunately, if I would allow Barbara to level up at 26, it would become a  Hypno, and the name-resemblance to Barbara Streisand would no longer fit.  Hypno does not look female in any way, so allowing a female Drowzee to evolve does not fit if you gave it a female name.

If your male Drowzee evolves into Hypno, name it “Sigmund” or “Freud” after the founding father of psychoanalysis with the Oedipus complex. Actually, “Oedipus” might be a good nickname. Maybe “Anna” after the good Doctor’s young daughter who often dreamed about cigars and bananas.
