Pokémon Nicknames: Vivillon

gibson flying V

Flying “V”

Vivillon (in Japanese: ビビヨンViviyon” ) is a dual-type BUG and FLYING type Pokémon. It is known as the “scale” Pokémon.  It evolves from Spewpa starting at level 12. It is the final form of Scatterbug.

I have caught and named several Vivillon.  The one I caught and trained for my journey through Kalos was named “Flying V”.  I named it after a 1967 Gibson “Flying V” guitar (I have had my eye on).

I also suggest the name “Volaré” named after Dean Martin’s famous song. The lyrics remind me of a XY  Sky battle as you will read below:

Volaré means “to fly” in Italian. Lyrics like “your love has given me wings” are especially fitting. The Italian: “Nel blu dipinto di blu” is the actual name of the song – meaning “In the sky, painted blue”.  It would be great to have a blue-patterned Vivillon. Great song, … and every time I listen to Dean Martin I always get hungry for spaghetti.  The memories are still vivid … but I digress.  “Vivid Calores” could also be a name!  

Volaré is also good if you like the Plymouth automobile.  They were popular with the Italian-American kids I grew up with.  There used to be a joke in high school, where guys would say “There was a big recall for the Plymouth Volare … yeah, whenever the engine stalls, an Italian chick automatically jumps into the backseat.”  Now look, when I was a young adult, the vivid colors of my world were a lot like the movie “Goodfellas” … and  I digress once again …

Lovingly called

A French language (Kalos) fitting name would be “Vichyssoise” – the potato and leeks soup which is served cold in those super-expensive French restaurants. No youngsters, I kid you not.  A recipe is linked here.

I have also used the name “Versailles” as in the Palace at Versailles (take the tour here).

the palace

Of course, X & Y veterans are already familiar with the Kalos-region palace.

I have also named them “Vermilion” after the brilliant red-color pigment originally made from the powdered mineral Cinnabar (another possible name).  The color is widely used in Chinese art and lacquerware.  In fact, the color is sometimes termed “Chinese Red” – which is another possible nickname!

Notice how the artistic eye is drawn directly toward the Vermilion-colored garment.

Notice how the artistic eye is drawn directly toward the Vermilion color of the garment.  You might need a little more material for a kimono however.

I used a Premier Ball to catch a female Vivillon, and named it “Kimono” because — well — I love kimonos, as you know.  I think that the pattern would make a nice kimono.

I have also named a male Vivillon “Vernon” after my friend in 6th grade, and also for “Mt. Vernon” home of George Washington.

“Viva la __” might also be a good nickname.  Alternateively: “VivaLes___” , etc. You can choose what is the blank, whatever you want to “Viva la” to with your last five letters.

It is unfortunate that we cannot (as yet) re-name Pokémon, as you could name them in relation to what regional wing pattern they have.  Vivillon’s pattern depends on the real-world geographic location set in the game where the Pokémon was caught.

I received a High Plains Pattern Vivillon via the GTS, but some idiot named it “NO, SORRY”.

There 20 known patterns.  It would be fun to collect and then name them something special!

Poor Vivillon: The National Pokedex number for Vivillion is 666. Which may be off-putting for those of the Christian persuasion, as 666 is the number that represents “the Beast”.

According to Christian mythology: during the latter days before the end of the world, Satan the Devil will send the anti-Christ to Earth in order to trick the gullible population into worshiping him,  — after which he will destroy us all … (No … that is not Obama, you joker, …No! …oh, you…).

pokemon vivillion condems you all

If there are over 700 Pokémon, someone had to be #666, so at least it is this very special, and very appealing Pokémon.

Pokémon Nicknames: Foongus and Amoongus

MoshiMoshi

Foongus (Japanese: タマゲタケ Tamagetake) is a dual-type Grass/Poison Pokémon. It evolves into Amoonguss (Japanese: モロバレル Morobareru) and retains the Grass/Poison dual-type.

The mushroom cap Pokemon Foongus is based on the word “fungus” and the larger mushroom Amoonguss is a play on the phrase “the fungus among us”.  I do not like to train Pokemon where these fungi live.  (I’m not a fun guy.)  These Pokemon are usually just a status problem waiting to happen.  Also, that Pokeball pattern cap would always fool me because I thought I have found an item in the field. Pokemon mushrooms

Here are my nickname suggestions for these mushroom Pokemon.

“Moshi Moshi” —  This is a phrase for answering the telephone in Japanese (as seen above).

“Fungo”  – as in to “hit a  fungo” in baseball.  A fungo is a fly ball hit for practice fielding by a player who tosses a ball in the air and hits it as it comes down.  A special, lighter “fungo bat” is used for practice.

OK, I'm going to hit a few fungos for you, then I need to go see Tony.

“OK, I’m going to hit a few fungos for you, then I need to go see Tony.”

If you are Italian, fungo means mushroom.

sagraLariano

However if you Italian-American and  only a little bit angry, you can substitute “fungo” instead of “f*ck you” as appropriate.  (As if you would ever see Italian guys talking like that.)

“FUNGO! … and I mean that in the nicest way possible.”

“MooGooGaiPan”  — Thank goodness that in Kalos you can now use 12 letters!  You can name your Pokemon after the wonderful Cantonese stir-fry dish with white chicken, mushrooms (moo-goo) and snow pea pods in a white sauce.

Moo Goo Gai Pan

… and that’s some gooooood fungus.
