Pokémon Nicknames: Mudbray and Mudsdale

givemudbrayaname

ALOLA  COUSINS!!!

Mudbray (in Japanese: ドロバンコ  “Dorobanko”) is a GROUND-type Pokémon first found in the Alola Region. It is termed the “Donkey Pokémon”. It appears to us as a donkey (aka a “jackass”) or mule. Mudbray evolves into Mudsdale — the “Draft Horse Pokémon”  (in Japanese: バンバドロ  “Banbadoro”) at level 30, where it remains a GROUND-type. (Bulbapedia reference here.)

Could Mudbray be a mule too? Not technically, since they call it the “donkey Pokémon”. Donkeys, burros and mules all share some resemblance in form however, so I will still use “mule” type names. A mule is produced when a male donkey is bred with a female horse (mare). Another mule-like animal the “Hinny,” is produced when you breed a male horse (stallion)  to a female donkey.

Did anyone ever try breeding a male Mudbray with a female Mudsdale, or a female Mudbray with a male Mudsdale? Go try that at Paniolo Ranch!

Mules are bred to be smaller, but stronger and more durable than a horse. Mules are less obstinate than a donkey. Donkey’s are hard to get along with. There is a reason why donkeys are called “Jackasses”. Jackasses are narrow minded, and they will not listen.  Mules are thus a better choice to be a pack-animal. However, hybrid mules are usually sterile and unable to breed offspring.

Knoxville” might be a good Mudboy name, after actor Johnny Knoxville who starred in the “Jackass” movie and reality TV show of the same name. I never saw it, let alone ever “tried it at home.” Apparently American audiences thought it was hilariously funny to watch people fall down. Also, lot of people in Knoxville, TN also like to get “down and dirty” like a ground-type should.

They call her “Bucky Becky”. Just be careful with the teeth there Becky.

Democrat” could be another good donkey name, as the jackass is the symbol of America’s Democratic Party. (Off topic: Elephants are the symbol of the Republican Party, so you could name your Phanpy or Donphan  a GOP themed name, then have them all battle in one big double battle.)

... and it had such potential!

… it lost, but it had such potential!

A great name for a donkey is “Quixote” after Don Quixote the story, the play and the movie. Perhaps “Donkey Oatey” or some variation. Go ahead, and dream the impossible dream.

It used to be that the Pokémon Name Censor would not let you use the letters “ass” – not even in names with the word “grass” as part of them. Apparently this has changed, so “Ass” names will now work, particularly within your own Sun and Moon  game. Suggestions: “AllAbotD.Ass” or some variation.

Sometimes the law ... is an ASS!

Sometimes the law … is an ASS!

Teachers might like to use names like “ASS=U+ME” after the old saying – What happens when you assume?you make an ASS out of YOU and ME. Ha Ha.

Eddie” after Eddie Murphy who played “Donkey” in the Shrek movies.

My Fav Honky” or “Favrit Honky” is good, if you remember the line in the Steve Martin novelty record “King Tut” (linked here). The record was actually not funny at all, but when he performed it on Saturday Night Live or in concert, it was much, much better with Mr. Martin making his wild-and-crazy Egyptian arm movements.

“Buried with a Donkey – He’s my favorite Honky – King Tut ! ”

The name “Brayboy” is a play on the words”bray” and  “playboy” because jackasses do bray like — well — like jackasses. Plus, most “playboys” are narcissistic jackasses. They think they are “Plow Boys” though.

Sometimes you can base a name on which “Hidden Power” it can learn. For example, “Assisgrass” learned “grass type” as its Hidden Power.

Other famous donkeys include “Eeyore” from Winnie The Poo, “Benjamin” from George Orwell’s “Animal Farm” and the funny sounding “Baba Looey” from the old Hanna-Barbara cartoon Quick Draw McGraw.

You could play with Burro names, like “BurroSupreme” for Taco Bell lovers. “Paco Packo” or similar — since burros are good pack animals.

The name “Forty Acres” or “40 Acres” would work for a mule, after the famous American expression regarding the lost “American Dream” — “Where is MY 40 acres and a mule?”

I like the name “Okey Dokey” for a donkey or a draft horse.

Mudsdale is a “draft horse” or workhorse, bred to pull a wagon load. Such horses were not bred to be racehorses, however some racehorses are bred to be “mudders” — able to run fast in muddy tracks. Thus, you should breed your female Mudsdale to be an effective ground type. “His mudder was a mudder” is a common phrase for bookies handicapping a race. Thus you should use a mudder-type name — I suggest “Tuff Mudder” or “Mudder Effer“.

Mudsdale’s signature move is a kicking move: “High Horsepower“. Kicking-type names like “Kick-Grass” — or horsepower type names like “500 Ponies”  may work. “Horse Sense” might make sense.

A good name for a horse is “Hot-to-Trot“. Oh —  and you may want to view my suggestions for Ponyta and Zebstrika for other equus suggestions. I would like to someday compose an all-Equus Pokémon team.  You could have Clydesdale, Mudbray, Rapidash, and Ponyta. Plus, Zebstrika and Blitzle could be there too.

Mudsdale also appears to have dreadlocks or a braided mane.  You could try “braid” type names — but I can’t think of many.

Found on Deviantart website. I might name a Mudsdale

Found on Deviantart website. I might name a Mudsdale “Greco-Roman” now.

You could base names on the large hairy hooves this horse breed has — “Horseplop for example, after the sound of hooves clopping down the road. “Cloggs” might resonate, if you like that type of shoes.

I would like to use the name “Kadiddlehopper” after the famous Red Skelton character Clem Kadiddlehopper .  Unfortunately there are too many letters. Maybe just “Kadiddle” would be a fun name for a plucky horse companion. The Mudsdale which I raised to battle the Alola Champion was called “Diddly Doo” — after the phrase made famous by Simpson’s neighbor Ned Flanders.

Mudsdale is obviously based on a “Clydesdale” horse. We all know about Clydesdales from watching Budweiser beer’s Super Bowl commercials. When I was just a kid, and my teenage friends and I would illegally sneak and drink beer, we would call them “Butt-weipers.” (Everything was funnier back then.) Thus, Clydesdale names might be  “Clyde” or “Bud Wiser” for males.  You could use horse names like “Happy Hoofer” (after the “Happy Hooker” books and advice column) for female Mudsdales.

The late TV announcer Ed McMahon  was long associated with the Clydesdales. He was also famous for his drinking. When I used to see the McMahon-narrated Clydesdale commercial of the horses pulling a big wagon packed tall with cases of beer —  I would joke “Yup, they are on the way to Ed McMahon’s garage.”

McMahon was Johnny Carson’s sidekick – or second banana – but he had a great jovial  laugh which made him agreeable to everyone. So name your Pokémon “McMahon”, “HiYo!” or “Sidekick”, especially since Mudsdale has strong kicking moves.

You know, I can do a pretty good Ed McMahon imitation. I know that it is dated, but just listen to my loud, boisterous laugh:

PUUUUHH  HUUUH  HUUH ,  PUUUUUUUUUUHHH ,  HUHH  HUH  HUHH

…. HOO  HOOH  PUUUHHH  HAAAH.

I sound just like him, right?
