Pokémon Nicknames: Aerodactyl

(18+ NSFW post) 

Aerodactyl (in Japanese: プテラ “Ptera”) is a “Fossil” Pokémon. Aerodactyl is a Rock-Flying dual type. Given this Pokémon’s large size, Aerodactyl may be more of a Pteranodon rather than a Pterodactyl.

There is not a known pre-evolutionary form of this Pterodactyl-like Pokémon, however it is resurrected from an “Old Amber” fossil. Aerodactyl can Mega-Evolve into Mega Aerodactyl using the Aerodactylite.

You can get the stone in XY from a scientist in the Fossil Lab after you have gone through Glittering Cave. In Alpha-Omega, you can find the stone on the top floor of Meteor Falls after you have the  legendary battle in Sootopolis. It is down the ledges below Zinnia’s grandmother.

Aerodactyle may also be reproduced by breeding, although 87.5% hatch as male. Try hatching a female Aerodactyl. I like to name the females “Terry” or “Petra”.

Actually I was not too sure what hatched here …

… and speaking of breeding like a Pteradactyl … I … er … um … explains the 87.5 to 12.5% ratio .. um …

Readers: When I started this post I truly had NO IDEA that “Dinosaur porn” was indeed a real sub-genre. Ahem.

Not … my … thing … at … all. Like a lot of the sub-genres in pornography … I really do not want to know. I guess I have led a sheltered life … and I probably digress once again.

One name I used was “ToraToraTora” after the Pear Harbor film.

My favorite name for Aerodactyl though is “Aerosmith” after the famous hard rock band. When I was 15, I bought my first Aerosmith album “Get Your Wings”.  (GYW full album linked here.)

I also got to naming them along an Aerosmith theme. I named one “GetYourWings”. I also named another “Dream On”  and added the musical notes to both end of the name.

I’m actually listening to the album right now… haven’t heard it in decades … really takes me back to when I was 15 … (Denny goes into a reverie)

The scene: Denny and his friends in Denny’s basement listening to his new Aerosmith record. “Same Old Song and Dance” is playing.

15-year old Denny: I love this song — rock and roll… Yeah!!! (Denny desperately trying to be cool)

Denny’s Friend #1: “Get  Your Wings”? …  pretty cool. I have the one with “Dream On”.

Denny: Cool

Denny’s Friend #2: Hey Denny, are you going to “get your wings”?

Denny: Yeah — I would love to be a pilot someday. I have my motorcycle, but someday I going to get a pilots license and learn to fly too.

Denny’s Friend #1: No, you asshole … (laughs) don’t you now what “get your wings means” … or “earn your redwings”.

Denny: (sheepishly) uh … yeah … no.

Denny’s Friend #2: That is when you are eating a chick out and she starts having her period. You get her blood all over your face and it looks like a big spread of wings … My brother is a biker and told me all about it.

Denny’s Friend #1: You’ve eaten a girl out before — right?

Denny: Oh … yeah (Laughs nervously, trying to be all-knowing.)

Actually that would not happen for another dinosaur age.

One of Aerodactyl’s ability’s is “Rock Head” so you can play around with names along that theme: “Flying Rock” or “Drop-A-Rock” (appropriate as Aerodactyl can learn the “Skydrop” move). I like “Rockford” after the old TV show “The Rockford Files” with the late James Garner.

References: As always, I get a lot of my basic information from the Bulbapedia and Serebii websites. The rest of it is … “the same old song and dance — my friend.”

What is the name for your rock-hard Pterodactyl? Please comment.

Pokémon Nicknames: Taillow and Swellow

Billions of these Macs were sold!

Taillow ( in Japanese: スバメ  “Subame”) is a NORMAL-FLYING -type Pokémon. It evolves into Swellow (in Japanese: オオスバメ Ohsubame”) starting at level 22, where it remains a NORMAL-FLYING type.

I named a Taillow “McWings” after the chicken wing item that used to be sold at McDonalds Restaurants.

Also, I named it “McWings” after Paul McCartney and Wings, the band that “Macca” (Paul McCartney’s nickname!) formed after the Beatles broke up. There was a famous Creem Magazine cover in 1976 which had Paul McCartney dressed as someone from the McDonalds corporation (cartoon photo above). The joke was that Paul McCartney’s band was super-popular, but critics thought that Paul was becoming too commercial, and simply writing songs to sell a product — that is, millions of records , the way McDonalds sold millions of burgers.  I digress however …

Open a box of Macca “Silly Love Songs” here … Note that the guy in the blond Afro in the video below is actually Denny in 1976! … but I digress once more …

I keep the name even after it evolves.  I have also named some Swellow “McCartney”. I have named some female Swellow “Lovelace” but I am embarrassed to admit it. There was a Rodney Dangerfield movie where a sexy lady asked him what his favorite bird was, and he answers “the Swallow” then leers as he always did.

Other possible names: Swell Fellow.  I name some Taillow “Kamikaze” (with two star symbols at each end).  If you teach it the “Brave Bird” move, it becomes reminiscent of Japan’s World War II pilots, or the alcoholic drink popular with naïve college students.  “Hitchcock” might be good, because it is a movie reference (“The Birds”), and a tough bird may be a tough cock.

I think that Taillow is a lot tougher than most players give it credit for.  I raised the Attack-stat on mine way up, and taught it moves like “Steel Wing”.

I did not worry about a Special Move, so that saved EV training points.  It has “Guts” ability, if it is hit with a status problem, that just boosts the Attack stat!  I raised this McWings in the original Sapphire, and transferred it all the way through other games to Pokemon Y.  I am raising a new chick in Omega Ruby however …

“How can I tell you about my loved one …”

I have also used the name “Paris London“. Because these are the two cities in “A Tale of Two Cities” by Charles Dickens. Get it a “Taillow of two cities”.  Ha Ha.

I think that “Hawkwind” would be a good name – after the great space-metal rock band that Lemmie was in. 

What is your nickname for your Taillow or Swellow? Please comment!
