Pokémon Nicknames: Swablu and Altaria

lisia_and_ali__the_altaria__pokemon_oras_cosplay_by_firecloak-d976ruh

Swablu (in Japanese: チルット  “Tyltto”) is a dual Normal-Flying type Pokémon. It is termed the “Cotton-Bird” Pokémon.

Swablu evolves into Altaria (in Japanese: チルタリス  “Tyltalis”) at level 35, where it becomes a Dragon-Flying dual type, and is dubbed the “Humming Pokémon”. (Humming? … What?)

Altaria can Mega Evolve into Mega Altaria using the Altarianite.

Although Swablu is a “cotton” Pokémon, its wings resemble clouds. Fair weather cumulus clouds are often described as having a cotton-ball appearance. This flying-type would appear to be able to mingle amongst the puffy convective clouds. I often give Swablu and/or Altaria  a cloud type name … but more on that later. Enjoy this Swablu cosplay for now …

The “blu” in Sawblu coordinates with its “sky-blue” color. This sky-blu color is sometimes called “Tar Heel blue” as this shade of light blue is the official color of The University of North Carolina. Thus I have named them “Tar Heel” and “Go Blu”.

I sometimes have my head in the clouds.

Female Swablu could be aptly named “Carolina”. Perhaps even “NC” after the famous UNC logo.

Perhaps “Kitty Hawk” would be a good name for a flying type, as it was the North Carolina beach (seen above) where the Wright Brothers first flew!

In general I like to name Swablu and Altaria after cloud types, such as “Cumulus”, “Cirrus”, “Stratus”, “Nimbus”, “Nimbostratus”, etc.

The mega-evolved Altaria looks like an imposing Cumulonimbus (which just makes it in at twelve letters.) Perhaps you could think of other sky/storm related names – “Hailbringer” for example.

Wouldn’t it be cool if Altaria could change its nickname when it mega-evolves? It would be cool if its name could change from cumulus to cumulonimbus as it grew into an intimidating thunderstorm! … what? … oh … you’re not a “weather-geek” you say? Perhaps you will enjoy this Altaria cosplay:

The Japanese-game name Tyltalis is appropriate for a dragon-type. It comes from the old name “Tyl”. This was the traditional name for Epsilon Draconis, a star in the constellation of Draco the Dragon. Thus, you could use the nickname “Epsilon” if you are an “astronomy-geek”!

If you are more of a “computer-geek”, then you might prefer the name “Altair 8800”, which was  released in 1975 as (ahem … cough) … the “first personal computer”.

Yes, it was a personal computer. Even though it did not have a monitor, keyboard, mouse, operating system, or software.  … what good was it for then? Humming?

Maybe try the name “I-Cloud” if you like Apple products.

Names I liked from users on the Name Rater site are Azure, Cloud 9, Cloud Nine, Nubes Arem for Altaria and Q-Tip for Swablu. I also noticed that several cloud names were also submitted … to be insulted …  you know how the name rater is!

Sayaka Yamamoto’s suggestions for gaining 20,000 views on WordPress.

sayaka yamamoto review in detail

I have been on my blogging hiatus, however I checked in today in order to view/return messages and delete my spam.  I was pleasantly surprised to see that I have now accumulated well over 20,000  views on WordPress!!!

twenty thousand

I have asked AKB48/NMB48 member Sayaka Yamamoto to be guest blogger today, so that I might continue to catch up at my day job — processing orders for agricultural chemicals.  Do you have some advice for those new to WordPress Sayaka-san?  

Translating …

1. Voice of Sayaka: You should follow other bloggers who have the same interests! Visit their sites, read their blogs!  Make suggestions. You may also come up with some great ideas!

If you are interested in "Interior Design" follow other bloggers with the same interests!

3. Start a new SERIES! Choose one of your favorite topics and write about it regularly. You may want to start a weekly, bi-weekly or some other interval.  You may develop a new following!

4. You may increase your traffic if you make interesting comments. Bloggers may visit your site, and find out what interests you, if you make comments. Remember: Always be polite!

Do not be afraid to SPEAK YOUR MIND!

5. Write about what YOU are interested in, or what you want to be an expert on!  You are not writing for anyone else.  Don’t worry about “giving the pubic what they think they want” — just be yourself.

If you are an expert on Wedding Gowns -- write about your unique designs!

5. Give it some time!  Kyoto was not built in a day … You WILL find your audience!
