Purrloin (in Japanese: チョロネコ “Choroneko”) is a DARK-type Pokémon. Purrloin evolves into Liepard (in Japanese: レパルダス “Lepardas”) at level 20.
I am not letting “Tingles” evolve yet.
Purrloin and Liepard can be raised to have very high Speed and Attack stats. These cats are good for a fast attack. I suggest Super-Training the attack stat as high as you can. They better be quick however, as their stock HP, Defense and Special Defense stats are low.
These “Dark” types may learn moves such as “Snarl”, “Nasty Plot”, “Sucker Punch”, “Snatch” and “Payback”. I think the best move however is “Night Slash” which is a highly-damaging physical attack.
Purrloin is a “cutsey” cat, so I tend to give it “cute” type nicknames. I have used names like names like “Tingles” (You know, like a tingling in the loins). I have used “Scratchy“, “Mr. Jingles” or “Purple Pain”. I suggest working with the “loins” part of the name such as “Fireloins” or “Loinclothz”. (If only there were enough allowed letters for Fruit-of-the-Loin, darn it!) You can use names one usually uses for the other cat-like Pokémon (Purrugly, DelCatty,etc). Names like “Hissy Fit”, “Nyah Nyah”, or “Skittles”. I like “Scats” for a Pokémon cat, but sometimes people get the wrong idea.
“Purrloin is a primarily purple, feline Pokémon. Its head has tufted fur on its ears and cheeks. There are long, tapered violet markings above its green, eyes. It has a diminutive black nose on its creamy muzzle, and a small, oval, cream-colored marking above each eye. Its neck, shoulders, back, and hind paws are also cream-colored. The tip of its tail has a curved, vaguely scythe-like extension. Purrloin is a quadruped Pokémon, but it can stand and walk on its hind legs as well. Purrloin is a mischievous Pokémon that likes to steal from people. It will put on a cute act in order to get its victims to let its guard down. However, it is often forgiven even if it is caught stealing due to its charm. When angered, it fights back with its claws.”
Perhaps use “Deep Purple” for a male. “Scratch Fever” perhaps as a nod to Ted Nugent. Sometimes you can get weird with a Nickname. “Hush-Hush” for a quite kitty perhaps. Oddly, although Purrloin can learn the move “Snatch” the name censor will not allow it as part of the name: “SneakySnatch” for example. Purrloin/Liepard has that sharp hook, or scythe as a tail . I wanted to name it “Fair Hooker” after the Monday Night Football reference, but the censor would not allow the “hooker” part. I spelled it “Fair Hookre“.
Liepard is more realistic looking animal. The following is directly from From Bulbapedia:
“Liepard is a slender, purple feline Pokémon speckled with yellow rosettes. Its fur patterning is considered attractive to many Trainers. It has a pink “mask” marking over its eyes, a pink nose, and small yellow markings over its green eyes. It has two pairs of long yellow whiskers, and a tufted yellow underside. Its lower legs are yellow, and each small paw has a pale pink pad that can be seen in Pokedex 3D Pro. It has a long, curving tail with a sickle-like shape toward the tip. Liepard has well-developed muscles that allows it to run silently and strike opponents from behind. It has also been known to vanish and reappear without warning.”
Here is some cool Liepard cosplay. Nice job kids!
I like the name “Silk Stalker” because silk stockings (“stalking” like a cat, get it?) are very cute. In fact, sexy silk stockings are one of the most life-affirming items a lady can wear …
… ahem … I think I like female Liepards best. They seem so slinky in their dark-type stalkings (or stockings). I also like to name a Liepard something like “Leotard” or “Leotards”. The shiny Liepard is a tan-brownish color instead of purple, which is often used as the leopard print color in ladies fashions.
Note that leopard-skin patterns on ladies shoes, leotards, panties, leggings and stockings can be interesting…
… VERY interesting.
(Denny swivels bar stool around, begins to feel the three-beer-buzz): I may digress a little here. Ladies, ditch the pantsuits and jeans and please wear sexy pantyhose more often. Note that wearing sexy stockings is about the biggest turn-on for men. This world needs less fighting over nothing. We need less political bickering … we need more leggy lady appreciation. My advice? Wear sexy hose the next time you see your fellow. Especially if you have never tried this, you might be amazed by his interest. (If you are counting, Denny has had four beers now. The truth starts to crystalize.) You see, all this time you had the power to drive him crazy, but you might not have even known how much. Have a little fun with lingerie. I guarantee that you will be on the receiving end of a nice surprise. I looked this up in “The Universal Translator”. Wearing sexy stockings is a non-verbal way of saying that you want your man to perform several hours of cunnilingus. … um … er … ahem … oh, right … naming Pokémon …
I also named a male Liepard “Leotardo” after The Sopranos character.
This was NOT Phil Leotardo.
OK … my mind wanders. “Fancy Pants” may be a cute name. “Prissy” is good for a female. I have used “Fussy Pants” (because apparently you cannot use that other word, even when describing a cat). Cats can be fussy. Think of a cat-on-a-hot-tin-roof. That’s how I feel when I see stockings …
What is the name for your sexy purple feline? Please Comment!
