Pokémon Nicknames: Stufful and Bewear

partofcorocoro9162

Today on “Pokémon Nicknames”, I consider Stufful and Bewear. (Denny knocks Sapporo beer can over, but picks it up quickly with little spillage): Oops … sorry … I’m a klutz, and sometimes have a hard time holding onto items. No I’m not drunk … Oh .. right (Denny in stilted falsetto): Alola … er …ALOLA COUSINS! Today I will suggest nicknames for two cute, cuddly – but DANGEROUS Pokémon.

Be warned … or “Be Ware” – ha ha, because I have a mind … that wanders …

On the Bulbapedia web site it says that Stufful (in Japanese: ヌイコグマ  “Nuikoguma”) is a Normal + Fighting dual-type Pokémon. Stufful is the “Flailing Pokémon” supposedly because it would flail around its cute stuffed-animal-like arms. Many Pokémon fans like to buy plush dolls of their favorite Pokémon. Maybe it is time for a Pokémon that is already a stuffed animal!

does-stufful-have-a-tag

Stufful even has a tag!

Stufful evolves into Bewear (in Japanese: キテルグマ  “Kiteruguma”) at level 27, where it remains a Normal + Fighting dual-type. Beware is the “Strong Arm” Pokémon. Bulbapedia says: “While Bewear may appear friendly, it is actually a very dangerous Pokémon. It must never be approached carelessly, even if it is merely swinging its arms around in a friendly fashion. It shows affection with a fond embrace, but its hugs have incredible force.” The story goes that many trainers have been severely injured, and some were even killed by Beware’s loving hugs.

Stufful is the perfect Pokémon for those of us who love Japanese Popular Culture! Its ears even look like those “headband ears” which are so popular with cosplayers, maid café goers, Japanese schoolgirls and/or the otaku of the Akihabara district of Tokyo.  Cat (neko) ears are probably the most common headband ears, but mouse, fox, bear or other fuzzy animal ears are also common.

cosplayer-with-white-headband-ears

Her cosplay ears are the biggest giveaway that she would love to meet and date a fellow nerd like you!

You should use Tokyo Pop Culture type names for the Pokémon. Names like “Akihabara”, “Shibuya”, or “Harajuku” would be appropriate. I also named one of these bears “Otaku”. “Yuri” or “Yoai” would also be fun, if you enjoy those genres of anime and/or manga.

 stuffbearimg_0302

Stufful is a plush doll, so maybe you could use “Doll Parts” after the song by the 1990s alt-rock band Hole (linked here). Cutesy names like “I Wuv You” , “Cuddles” or “Fuzzy Wuzzy” should also work when you bear evolves. “Huggie Bear” is based on the archtypical and quintesential “pimp” character from the 1970s TV police series “Starsky and Hutch“.

A good name would be “Gyu” or “Gyu Gyu Gyu” which is loosely translated as “hugs” or “squeezes”. It is one of those Japanese words which do not translate directly into English. When you give someone a hug there is that wonderful moment, when the hug “becomes a hug” and the mutual feeling of love is exchanged — Gyu!

Another Japnese pop culture name might be “Moe” which loosely describes affectionate aspects of otaku culture.

The Pokémon pink color is off course very “kawaii” but the bright pink is juxtaposed with dark brown portions of its body.  This combination put me off at first, but I understand it is popular, and I have learned to love it.

stuffbearimg_0295

This color juxtaposition led me to name one of my party Pokémon “PinkAndStink”.

(Denny turns to drinking buddies): You know guys, “the pink” is about the most wonderful thing that there is in this existence. It also is located in very close proximity to “the stink”.  (Gulps) They are both delightful in their own ways … (Sapporo can drops again, but is quickly put upright) … they both have their own unique charms. You may have directed yourself to the pink. You probably spend most of your time there, and the points north, but don’t tell me you have not also explored the stink. There is also that wonderful, sensitive border area, right in between the pink and the stink. You can tell a lot about a lady by how well she manages that marchland … You don’t have to be a conquering hero, but it is a great way to bond with her. You might even end up surprising yourself.

Oh … right … Pokémon names … (Denny raises hand, orders another Sapporo).

A Pokémon with Fluffy takes half damage from moves that make contact. It also takes double damage from Fire-type moves. Fire-type moves that make contact will deal regular damage. (Bulbapedia)

Pokémon Nicknames: ALOLA forms of Vulpix and Ninetales

ALOLA COUSIN!

a-stunning-half-top-knot-hairstyle-almost-different-article

I need to update my original “Pokémon Nicknames” post  for Vulpix and Ninetales, as there is now a special Alola form of Vulpix and Ninetales. My original Vulpix/Ninetales post is linked here.

https://dennysinnoh.wordpress.com/2015/03/15/pokemon-nicknames-vulpix-and-ninetales/

The Alola form of Vulpix is an ICE-type. It evolves into Ninetales by using the ice stone.

Credit goes to the original artist.

The Alola form of Vulpix/Ninetales is only caught in Pokémon Sun, but these two Pokémon are readily available through trading on the GTS or with a friend. (Pokémon Moon has Alola ice-type Sandshrew and Sandslash, which also evolves with an ice stone.  It would be jolly good form for you to trade your extra ice-Sandshrew for an ice-Vulpix, or vice versa).

Now that Vulpix is ICE rather than FIRE, I need to suggest nicknames other than names for fire-hot redheads like “Lucy”. I am thinking that instead of a redhead, Vulpix is now a platinum blonde.

I might suggest naming female Vulpix “Gwen” or “Stacy” after Gwen Stacy the tragic girlfriend of Peter Parker in the Spiderman comic books.

I might name one Gwen after singer Gwen Steffani (another platinum blonde), but I have not listened to her music since the 1990s. Other famous, sexy, platinum blonde names could also be used. For example: “Harlow” after legendary actress Jean Harlow.

a-jean-harlow-1369634563_b

You may name one “Marilyn” after Marylin Monroe, probably the quintessential platinum blond bombshell. Um … wait … did I say SEXY platinum blondes?  Huh huh … er … yes, well Vulpix and Ninetales females are very beautiful.

bottleblondebombshell5444c1e79858e182f7c77ab80b5b8f07

She may be a “bottle blonde” but she is also a “beautiful bombshell”! I can’t wait to hear her Nine Tales!

If you want sexy, just don’t name one after Madonna. Why not name your ice-blond “Blondie” after the comic strip, or the early new wave band from New York?

Male Vulpix …. hmmmm … maybe something like “Warhol” after crazy-white-hair-artist Andy Warhol.

Crazy fucking mental-case. See, I am good at NAMING!

Crazy fucking mental-case. See, I am good at NAMING!

I think “Ice Nine” would be a good name for male Ninetales. The term is from the famous Kurt Vonnegut novel “Cat’s Cradle”. The “ice-9” form of water caused the end of the world, but you can read all about it when you go to college. Try  “Snow Job” which is slang for lying, especially if the ice-fairy fox knows moves like “Blizzard”. .  “Shaved Ice” might work, but only because my mind wandered. How about a Spanish name like “Helados  or “Terra Fría?

I will end with some nice Vulpix cosplay. Thank you to Tumblr user Vykril Cosplay for her Vulpix kimono cosplay. It looks beautiful!

Pokémon Nicknames: Natu and Xatu

natu cushion 30f6d66914274e67ace9558b2117b452

Natu ( in Japanese: ネイティ  “Naty” ) is a dual-type Pyschic and Flying Pokémon. It is known as the “Tiny Bird Pokémon”.

4b389aed1fd26576656419ae821151e1

Is the bird really the word?

Natu evolves into Xatu (in Japanese: ネイティオ  “Natio” ) at level 25, where it remains a Psychic/Flying type. (There is no Mega-Evolution.) Xatu is known as the “Mystic Pokemon”.  Thus I like to teach it Psychic, Ghost, Dark or Fairy special-attack type moves.

pokedex_178___xatu_fr_by_pokemon_fr-d4uokmv

Both Natu and Xatu are stylized with colors and graphics similar to American Indian iconography and themes. In fact, Xatu looks somewhat like a teeppee (tipi) tent, or wigwam.

natuginka9f8e68c81ef17ca5aabae43eca29d182 natu and xatu 0f47a04d763cfa894e1d271dc29ecdbe

xatu ginka d00e499357befd5b951abc7f551c5e40

Natu is a cute little bird so it deserves a cute name. “Teepee” or “Tipi” might be good to go along with the theme. Maybe “Psy-Chick” for females?

natu IMG_0215

I called one Natu “Nanu Nanu” after the catch phrase of the 1970s TV character “Mork”, played by the late actor Robin Williams.

nanu nanu one giphy

natu IMG_0216

“Nanu Nanu” was a Williams ad-lib, but it became to be known as a goofy but mystical way of saying either “hello” or “goodbye” every episode. (Some fans have equated the phrase with Star Trek’s Mr. Spock saying “Live Long and Prosper” as a mystical hello/goodbye greeting.)

Another name I like to use for little bird Pokémon is “Little Wing”. This name does sound a little like a Native American name … I use it because of the classic Jimi Hendrix song “Little Wing”.  

cosplay bc74c1c2935774a1ddb561f042c4efa0

“When I’m sad, she comes to me …  

          With a thousand smiles, she gives to me free …”

The song (lyrics linked here) has been covered by all reputable blues bands, but you will not find the Hendrix original version on YouTube (cough …R.M.I.).

natu IMG_0210

Other Indian-themed names are “Wigwam, “Wompum, or “Peyote.  Of course you can have a mystical experience with peyote. I discourage using “squaw” as part of the name (“Psycho Squaw“) for example, because the word is sometimes used as a slur. Of course, these days using ANY Native-American word might be trouble … or taken the wrong way … if you ever  have to deal with the mentally-deficient  politically correct ninnies who dominate college campuses.

Xatu can learn the TM “Fly”.  My name “Flying Luck” is based on the phrase “I don’t GIVE a flying luck!”  I have also used names like “Flying Jung” a play on the “Dying Young” film and the famous psychologist Carl Jung. Since Xatu is a “Mystic Pokémon” why not name one “Mystic Pizza” after that famous Julia Roberts movie?

I like to think that these Pokémon cosplayers would like to learn some mystic moves with me.

I like to name them “Arizona” because the coloration is like the classic “SouthWest” type I suppose. I also use the name “Anasazi” after the southwestern American native civilization which mysteriously disappeared.

268800d4bd3814cde4c85e419b501019

On that note, you could name the little bird “Pueblo” ,”Adobe” or “Stucco“.

469fc04eec9827a5560e8bd06aa93e5b

On the Name Rater’s site (he is angry because of YOU) I saw a couple of interesting nicknames. “The Word” (because the bird is the word!) for Natu. Also for Xatu, the names “Tomahawk” — another Indian/bird reference,  and “Psyclone” which is an appropriate air name because Xatu is a flying type. Thanks for the ideas NR, I might name one “Tommy Hawk“.

I named a Xatu which was evaluated with “outstanding potential” the term “Dreamtime“. Actually, the dreamtime is more of an Australian Aborigine phrase for the mystical experiences and visions one may have. The term also correlates with the mystical religious experiences one may have in a sweat lodge.

cosplay 3b3a8cb9e855bfb9ba19609327b09c29

During my dream-time I want to see a beautiful vision like her!

Ha! “Xatu the Future” (episode linked here).

Pokémon Nicknames: Scyther and Scizor

a skyther 9570436661_2938009208_c

She is BEAUTIFUL … but I might not be thinking with my mantis head …

Scyther (in Japanese: ストライク  “Strike”) is a BUG & FLYING dual-type Pokémon. (Some players are frustrated however, that this flying bug cannot actually learn the TM Fly!) Scyther is known as the “Mantis Pokémon. It only evolves into Scizor (in Japanese: ハッサム “Hassam”) when traded holding the Metal Coat item. (You might want to get it traded back, so only trade it with another trusted trainer. Scizor becomes a BUG & STEEL type and is known as the “Pincer Pokémon”. Scizor can Mega Evolve into Mega Scizor if holding a Scizorite stone.

EvoScizor

Scizor can Mega Evolve into Mega Scizor if holding a Scizorite stone.

My favorite nickname for Scyther is “Slingblade” named after the classic Billy-Bob Thornton film “Slingblade”. (By far, his best movie.)

This is most appropriate — as you can see in the intense scene below.

“Some folks call it a Scyther-blade … I call it a sling-blade …”

My second favorite name for Scyther or Scizor is “Ronin” or some variation of a Samurai-related term. “BoshidoBug” for example.

scyther tumblr_nof8k1qHep1t1hl0oo1_1280

Scyther — in the game — does not  look very female, so naming the fairer-gender may be harder. These cosplayers make Scyther look more like a beautiful fairy than an ugly bug however.

I usually name female Scyther something like “A.Castrator ” or “La Castra”, because …

a scyther 11265492_671071073024184_5213352732740314495_o

Ahem … this flying fairy bug could easily castrate an opposing male Pokémon.

a scyther swords_dance_by_terminacosplay-d7xnb7x

(Denny in high pitched voice): – maybe you could teach it the move “Swords Dance” for extra power!

Scyther is a Mantis. I learned in my Invertebrate Zoology course that the female Mantis is much larger and is a more viscous predator than the male.  Typically she will bite the head off of her chosen male suitors. In fact, the male will mate more effectively once his head has been severed. (Guys, take this Mantis advice:  (cough) … If you are ever having trouble at the crucial point …don’t over-think it … Ah, and it will be … OK, there it is again…).

Another female who cannot figure out why she cannot sustain a relationship.

Another female who cannot figure out why she cannot sustain a meaningful relationship.

Once the female Mantis has received sperm from the typical unthinking male, she will devour the rest of him. In fact, she may continue eating the other stupid males who were also attracted by her pheromones, and were waiting their chance. The males would be better off by not thinking with their little bug dicks, but who can ever learn that lesson?

SONY DSC

Names for Scizor: I have used include “Edward” because of the film Edward Scissorhands”. The name “Scissorhands” has 12-letters which just makes the limit.

scizor tumblr_mzeyjgAlx01qa6q9uo1_500

You could use the name “Run-With-Me” as a joke, because everyone know that you should not run with Scizors … Ha.

What is the name for your castrating bug? Please COMMENT, or “Like” … yada-yada-yada.

Pokémon Nicknames: Hoothoot and Noctowl

ShadowBall, use your hooters ... er ... I mean, Hooters -- use ShadowBall!

ShadowBall, use your hooters … er … I mean, Hooters — use ShadowBall!

Hoothoot (in Japanese: ホーホー  “Hoho”) is the “Owl Pokémon”. The little hooter is a dual-type Normal & Flying Pokémon. Hoothoot evolves into Noctowl (in Japanese: ヨルノズク “Yorunozuku) at level 20, where it remains a Normal/Flying dual-type.

Noctowl

Thus far, there is not a mega-evolved form. Noctowl is a fun Pokémon, but it is not particularly strong. I hope that there will be a mega-evolution someday, where it might be a powerful dual Flying and Psychic type. I like to teach this mysterious bird psychic moves like “Hypnosis” in order to make your opponent sleep.

IMG_0203

My favorite name for Noctowl is “Fly-By-Night”. I more often use the music note symbol instead of a dash, because it stands for the RUSH song and album “Fly By Night”. I also like to catch them with a Timer Ball, as the clock graphic seems to fit the name, and the Rush lyrics.

Rush_-_Fly_By_Night-cover-art

I thought that “Noctowl” sounded like a sleep-aide  or cold medicine, so I named one “Nyquil”. I also named a Hoothoot “Hooterville” after the fictional rural town in the TV series “Green Acres” and “Petticoat Junction”. Even “The Beverly Hillbillies” once went to Hooterville. I named one “Drucker” after Sam Drucker, the grocer at the Hooterville general store.

IMG_0205

An obvious owl-related name would be “Hooters” after the famous chicken-wing restaurant. I think I know the reason why that wings restaurant is called “Hooters”. When one eats chicken wings which are a little too spicy, your mouth burns, and you try to fan off your mouth and say “Hooo hot …. “hooo”.

Natalie-Hooters-Uniform

Re-size to fit page.

With all those diners saying “Hooo…” so much, they probably thought that it sounded like owls, and so they might as well just call the place “Hooters”!

Ahem. Other names I might suggest include: “Nox” as a short form of “Equinox” — which might be a cool name too. I think that “Twin Peeks” is good, especially for little Hoothoot. I loved the old TV miniseries “Twin Peaks” created by director David Lynch (the hauntingly beautiful theme song is linked here). Owls were part of the symbolism in this mystery. “Peaks” might mean two glorious mounds of inspiration. but spelled as “Peeks” it refers to the eyes of the owl.

big owl eyes

Notice how the viewer is drawn in to that beautiful pair of owl-like peekers.

As seen above, “Who-Are-You” may be a fun name if you like classic rock or that CSI TV show.

I always like that Tootsie Pop commercial with Mr. Owl. I did not find much I liked on the Name Rater site, but I did like these “Dr. Who“, “Nightwing” “and “Athena“.

Owl nicknames may be a topic to explore further! There will be an owl starter Pokémon (named Rowlet) in the new game —  Pokémon Sun and Moon. It releases this November 18th.

What do you name your little hooters? Please comment!

Pokémon Nicknames: Koffing and Weezing

weezing_gijinka_2_by_zerphia-d62h406

Koffing ( in Japanese: ドガース  “Dogars”) is a poison-type Pokémon.

koffing_by_sith_goddess

You don’t look addicting at all dear girl. Perhaps there would be no harm in trying it out once or twice.

It evolves into evolves into Weezing (in Japanese: マタドガス  “Matadogas”) when it reaches level 35, where it remains a poison type. Currently, there is not a mega-evolution for Weezing however..

koffing to weezing

I like to name this Pokémon “LA Smog”. I sometimes just name them “Los Angeles”  after the famously polluted California city. Some players have named a Koffing “New York” and the evolved Weezing “LA” because they are both polluted cities. Los Angeles’ smog is much worse than any east coast city, as southern California in general, and the Los Angeles basin in particular have a unique physical geography which creates temperature inversions which trap air pollution in place.

It may be fun to create a whole Koffing/Weezing team, and name them after world cities which have the worst air pollution. Beijing, Mexico City, etc.

Perhaps “L.A. Woman” after the famous Doors song.

smoke out

Speaking of California and smog — and weezing: The band called Weezer has this new song called “California Kids.” There is a haze for sure.

Monoxide” might be a good name – particularly for the single ball Koffing — as carbon monoxide is the greatest air pollutant by weight in our urban areas.

Cigarette smoke contains carbon monoxide, which will damage your brain. When Koffing evolves – change it to “Dioxide.

cig pack co warning

Kids, DO NOT SMOKE. Cigarette smoke contains a chemical which will give you brain damage.

I might prefer names like “Ozone” or “Oh-Three”. The worst part of photo-chemical smog is ozone gas ( O3 or three atoms of oxygen).

“Ball-of-Gasl” or “Gas-Bag” may also be appropriate. Think of TV gasbags like the Keith Olbermann. … or just name it “Olbermann” and assume that the opponent knows that you infer a poisonous gas-bag Pokémon.

Who is your favorite poison gas-bag?

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

A playful name for weezing might be “Weezy” or “Louise” after the famous character “Weezy Jefferson” from the great 1970s hit sitcom: “The Jeffersons”.

What would you name your smokey orbs? Please comment!

Pokémon Nicknames: Volbeat and Illumise

4977352.gross

Volbeat (in Japanese: バルビート  “Barubeat”) is the “Firefly Pokémon”. It is a BUG-type. It does not evolve, and so far there is no Mega-evolutionary form. All Volbeats are male.

volbeat plastic toy

You can breed it with a Ditto, to produce an egg that will either hatch as a Volbeat if it is male, or an Illumise if the hatchling is female.

Volbeat egg

Illumise (in Japanese: イルミーゼ  “Illumise”) is also a Bug-type, also is a “Firefly Pokémon” and also does not evolve from or into any form.

illumisecosplay1

I wonder if she knows TM 70?

All are female, and can be bred with either a Ditto or a Volbeat. Eggs would contain either Illumise or Volbeat.

illumise_and_volbeat_by_francescamisa-d4u35tl

I like to name Volbeat after members of the Beatles. I used to use combined names, like John-Paul or George-Ringo, but then I just gave them the individual names of the Beatles. “John”, “Paul”, etc.

I even used “Pete Best” as he was the original Beatles drummer. Did you know that there was another Beatles member — “Stu”? Stuart Sutcliff was one of the original Beatles, and was a big influence on John and Paul until his untimely death.

pauljohngeorgestuartpete

Paul, John, George, Stu and Pete.

I have also named Volbeat “Down Beat” or “Downbeat” after the Jazz musical style. I also like “Fahrvernugen” – after “Fahrvergnügen” the slogan for Volkswagen automobiles, but I would have to misspell it due to the 12 letter limit. Of course you can just name it “VW” or “V.W. Beetle”. There is also a Danish heavy-metal group called Volbeat, so if you are a Euro-metal fan, you could name Volbeat after one of their songs. “EnglishBeat” and “Bronski Beat” are 1980s new wave music examples.

Another possible name for this Beetle is “The Love Bug” or “Herbie” after the famous Disney movie. The name “Ocho” would be subtle play on Herbie’s racing number.

Herbies headlights

Herbie’s headlights as seen in the 2005 remake with Lindsay Lohan.

Illumise —  by contrast — is gorgeous. She has these most amazing eyes. This Firefly is a nocturnal beauty. I have used the name “NightLight“. You could name Illumise after any pretty girl with enchanting eyes. “Moon-in-June” or “Moon-Bug” may be OK. “Bedroom Eyes” anyone?

wasa eyes

Guess who!

It probably will not surprise you, but I named one “Iwasa Misaki” after the world’s most beautiful woman … er … I mean … um … er … second only to my wife … um … is what I meant to say. I named another one “Wasamin” and used the little heart symbols as part of the name. I leveled little, bright-eyed Wasamin up to Level 100 in a Luxury Ball, and also super-trained her.

wasa IMG_0167

What is the name for your favorite firefly? Please comment!

illumise.cosplay2

Use TM70 “Flash” ! … really, I won’t mind.

Maybe I should have named this night-lightning bug something like “Headlights” or “Highbeams” – after, well, you know.
