My daughter Sakura looks lovely in that white Russian seal-fur hat doesn’t she?

Ahem … The HAT, gentlemen.

Seel (in Japanese: パウワウ  “Pawou”) is a Water-type Pokémon. It is known as “the Sea Lion” Pokémon. Seel evolves into another “Sea Lion” —  Dewgong (in Japanese: ジュゴン  “Jugon”) at level 34, where it becomes a dual type Water-Ice Pokémon.

Seel and Dewgong join the group of other pinniped Pokemon. Spheal (another seal), Sealeo (another sea lion) and Walrein (a walrus). All of these are water-ice types so nicknames could probably overlap and be interchangeable. Perhaps Dewgong is supposed to be the spirit of — not a sea lion – but a manatee. You often see a Dewgong perched on rocks. The sirens or mermaids of nautical lore were thought to be actually manatee. It is said that confused and lonely sailors thought they looked pretty good.

(calling) … come along … to my Dewgong …

I like to teach water & ice-types both of the moves Scald and Ice Beam  You can freeze an enemy solid, then help them out by burning them with hot water. Seel and Dewgong both closely resemble their real-life animal counterpart. Most trainers don’t get too excited about them. Seel is basically a seal. The Pokémon do have a single horn on their head however. I have to wonder if the designers were doing a take on Narwhals, which have a single horn. Perhaps there may be a cool looking “mega-evolved” Dewgong someday, but I think that Samurout already has the “battle-seal” image done already.

My favorite name for Dewgong is “WhiteRussian” which just makes it in at 12 letters.

Mmmm …White Russians. I used to love that Kahlua drink (recipe linked here). When my friends and I were out drinking, I used to call it “the old moloko” just like I was a character from the novel/movie A Clockwork Orange, drinking at The Korova Milk Bar. What?

True fact: Korova is Russian for Cow, but maybe save that name for Milktank.

Of course I was lame. Look, we didn’t have the Internet in the late 1970s. If you wanted to look something up you had to use an encyclopedia … and I know I digress.

Keeping with the Russian or Siberia theme, I have also used the name “Zhivago” after the novel/film Doctor Zhivago.

The other name I like is “Bering” after the sea which lies between Russia and North America. Of course Russian seal hunters have always used that waterway. “Murmansk” is another ice-free Russian port. I have used “In-The-Navy” (with the music note symbol).

I like “Slip” or “Slips” for a Seel, because seals are slippery, and I always liked The Bowery Boys character Slip Mahoney.

I also like the name “Ding Dongs” for Dewgong after the wonderful Hostess treat. You know what? I used to eat Hostess Ding Dongs after a night of binge drinking White Russians! They would “sweeten you right up — and get you ready for the old ultraviolet” … or there about.

Others: Seel names I have seen other players use include: Clubby, Snowball and Sugar. These are all cute names.

Darn it, I lost the scene where Ash trains Dewgong.

What is the name for your slippery seal? Please Comment!
