Pokémon Nicknames: Joltik and Galvantula

Joltik (in Japanese: バチュル  “Bachuru” ) is a dual-type Bug and Electric Pokémon.

The little creepy crawler evolves into Galvantula (in Japanese: デンチュラ  “Dentula”) at level 36, where it remains a bug/electric dual type. This little electric arachnid is often found in caves.

Galvantula does not Mega-Evolve, at least not at this time. Apparently they are easy to breed.

You could name a male Joltik “Joltin Joe” after baseball legend “Joltin’ Joe DiMaggio“. I was at a loss for what to name a female Joltik … I thought … “it is a crawler … No, a walker…” so I finally came up with “WalkAwayRené” after the famous 1966 hit song by Left Banke — Walk Away Renée”.  I maxed out my 12 allowed letters.

Listening to this really takes me back. Here is the original black and white music video. It is pretty cool for a 1960s promo clip. Remember there was not an MTV or such outlet for this type of promo film back then! Watch for Renée to appear in the clouds above the trees  —  it is a sweet moment. The sound of this vid was recorded very low however. You can also listen to a 45 record with better sound linked here, or a crystal clear CD linked here.  Lyrics are linked here. You will note that this song has a very pretty melody. It is also a sad and haunting melody. You see, back in the mid 1960s — pop songs actually had  melodies!!! Kids, learn something from this well-crafted 1960s song.

Dozens of singers have recorded “Walk Away Renée”.  I have links here for versions by Linda RonstandtMarshall Crenshaw (my fav cover), The Four Tops (Motown version), Rickie Lee Jones, and Cyndi Lauper, to list just a few. Perhaps your favorite singer has covered it. This cover by Herman’s Hermits is spot on.

I bet you will be getting into it when you try it at karaoke tonight … you shy little spider.

Remember Renée from up in the clouds? Well, here she is again in a little Galvantula cosplay:

06

“Your name and mine inside a heart upon a wall — Still finds a way to haunt me —  though they’re so small”

02

“Just walk away, Renee — You won’t see me follow you back home — The empty sidewalks on my block — are not the same …”

Considering Galvantula:  I chose the name “Boris” as a tribute to John Entwistle’s song made famous by The Who.

The spider can learn moves like Electroweb, Electroball and Sticky  Web. However, I prefer straight ahead attacks such as X-Scisscor, Bug-Bite or Thunderbolt.

I have also used the name “Galveston” after the town out on the barrier island coast of Texas — and the Glen Campbell song of the same name!

Galveston should never be confused with Houston, Texas however. Both cities are coastal, but there are some notable differences between them. Galveston is a more idyllic resort area. Not so with Houston. Galveston is well known as a good place to go for Spring Break! Galveston has several “Bikini Contests” each season.

“I clean my gun … and dream of Galveston” — Glen Campbell.

Houston? Meh. There is this old joke about the married couple from Dallas, Texas who wanted to spice-up their sex life. The man asks his wife if there was anything new he could do to please her in sexually. She replies “I want you to kiss me in that place that is down-and-dirty.”  So he drives her to Houston.

Oh, yeah … I was talking about yellow electric spiders … Other names I have seen for Galvantula include “Voltaire” – after the French writer of the Enlightenment. Voltaire might be a good name for any electric type, and would be probably be a better nickname for a Voltorb. Voltaire wrote during The Enlightenment, so do you think he ever used “Flash“?

another voltaire quote

“ArachNode” – after a “node” or an interescting point of electrical wiring. “Killabite” would be a play on the kilobyte term in computers and electronics. “Kumonga” – the name of the giant spider who battled Godzilla. “Tetrawatt” orQuadravolt” may work, as these are both plays on the fact that Garvantula only has four legs apparently. Four less than a spider should have.

What is the name of your electric spider? Please comment.
