Pokémon Nicknames: Binacle and Barbaracle

Pokémon Nicknames:

Binacle (in Japanese: カメテテ “Kametete”) is a dual-type Rock and Water Pokémon native to the Kalos Region (Generation 6). Binacle is “bi” because it is two barnacles. It is a double headed Pokémon that evolves into Barbaracle at level 39. Barbaracle (in Japanese: ガメノデス “Gamenodes”) remains a Rock and Water dual- type at level 39.  (reference: Bulbapedia) However, the evolved form becomes more “single headed” but still “multi-handed”.

I always like to use the names of famous duos when naming them. “Laurel+Hardy”, “Burt-N-Ernie” or “Bruce+Dick”, etc for males. How about a movie reference like “TheTwoJakes“?

My favorite male Binacle name is “Ford-Dole’76“, after the losers of the 1976 U.S. presidential election.

Since Binacle is either male or female, you will have to choose famous team-ups of the same gender. For females, my favorite is “Patty/Selma” after the characters from The Simpsons.

The name “Salt-N-Peppa” always go together. Maybe the term “Honor+Offer” after my old Las Vegas lounge act. Binacle is also a “Bi” so you can have fun with binary computer code names, like “Zero and One“.

Be creative! You have 12 letters starting in the Kalos Region, thus you have room for combined names. You will have to add a “+” symbol as a substitute for “and” because Pokémon text does not have the “&” symbol. You can also use a “/” symbol to divide the names, especially if the names are nearly identical or opposites.

It might be a hoot to name Binacle “Laurel/Yanni” after the viral internet debate all the rage in early 2018. Some people heard “Laurel”, while others heard “Yanni” on the sound clip.

It was weird how people heard the exact same physical sound, yet interpreted it differently. Kind of like how women often hear things differently than reasonable people … huh heh  … um … er … but I digress …

If you let or make your Binacle Pokémon evolve, then the duo-names no longer fit. Barbaracle has only the one head, which is still shaped like a hand. It has four other hands, the top two of which have eyes, plus two feet which are also barnacle-hand shaped. It is hard to bridge that difference in appearance to a duo name, so you might change it at the Name Rater’s place.

BarnacleBoy” was a character from from the SpongeBob show, but I don’t care for that name. Maybe “Big Barney” after the sandwich.

The name “High Five” might work, as the Pokémon has five hand appendages. I might suggest “HandyManny” after the kids cartoon program, or “HandJive” after the Johnny Otis 1950s rock and roll song. “All Hands” or “Roman Hands” may fit for an active hands Pokémon, as many women have had to put up with a date who becomes a little too forward with the hands. Perhaps “Tag Team” if you get the wrestling reference. How about “Mr. Shiva” for the multi-armed Hindu Deity? I named one “YeahYeahYeah” because love me do, I wanna hold your hand, she loves you. I finally settled on “Talk-2D-Hand” for my hyper-trained Barbaracle with outstanding stats.

What is the name of your barnacle duo? Do you have a handy nickname? Please comment.

Note: I apologize for the lack of cosplay models for this post. I tried a web search for “sexy barnacles” but all I found were pictures of clams.
