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”.
… 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’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.)
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.
