Pokémon Nicknames: Helioptile and Heliolisk

helioptilehelioliskclasps

Helioptile (in Japanese: エリキテル  “Erikiteru”) is a Electric-Normal dual-type Pokémon. Helioptile evolves into Heliolisk (in Japanese: エレザード  “Elezard”) when exposed to a Sun Stone, where it remains an Electric-Normal dual-type.

helio evo tumblr_n6plq4NPlG1rpn9eno1_500

There is no Mega-Evolution of Heliolisk yet. Both Helioptile and Heliolisk are known as the “Generator Pokémon” (from Bulbapedia).

The “helio” part of Helioptile’s name means “Sun” although it is an Electric type. Helioptile’s ears look a lot like helicopter blades, so I named one “Huey” after the famous American-designed military helicopters. The Huey-Helicopter was an important transport aircraft during the Vietnam war. The chopper is a big part of the iconography and the American public’s perceived memory of that forgotten conflict.

huey helicopter

I also like the name “Huey Louie”. You may think that this is named after Donald Duck’s nephews Huey-Dewey-and-Louie. In fact, I name it Huey Louie after the original stage name of 1980s singer Huey Lewis (video linked here.) I am a rock historian, so I can tell you that Mr. Lewis is also famously well hung.

I was watching a VH1 Documentary the other day about famous rock music groupies (linked here). It was said by Pamela DesBarnes that she gave oral sex to dozens, if not hundreds, of rock musicians. When asked about the comparative penis sizes of all the dudes she blew, she said that “Huey Lewis was the biggest, and Peter Frampton was the smallest”. The documentary goes on to tell how these groupie chicks would suck-off — not just the rock stars, but they would also polish the knobs of all the roadies, security guards and managers — as they would work their way up to the group.  Plus, they would be taking all these hard drugs — but to hear them tell it — in a cool way! If you’ve seen that terrible movie “Almost Famous”  … you know that rock historians look back on these ladies of the countless blow-jobs – not with disgust – but as strong, “feminist” women who made their own way in a man’s world. It would take a lot of courage to do that many drugs. Yup, even with all that “Kablooie Louie” all over their faces, tits and hair, they were the one’s being empowered.  At least Hollywood thinks that it is heroic to take a lot of dangerous drugs and blow a multitude of guys. Just ask Susan Sarandon or Goldie Hawn. … and — Yes, I see that I have digressed once again …

You know, come to think of it, “Kablooie” might just be a good nickname …

Ahem … keeping with the rotating them of helicopter blades and the like, I have also used the names “Whirligig” after those cute lawn decorations. I also used “Tilt-A-Whirl” after the famous carnival ride (images linked here).

helio IMG_0126 helio IMG_0125

I think that “Willy-Nilly” might be good for female Helioptile. I used the name “Dizzy~Lizzy” in honor of Little Richard’s famous rock-and-roll song “Dizzy Miss Lizzy” (The Beatles version is linked here). I named another “TWISTnSHOUT” after the famous Beatles cover song (linked here).

Heliolisk is one of those “frilled lizards” after evolution. The type of lizard which raises a large circular frill around its head as a way of intimidating a predator, or what I think – to scare the heebie jebbies out of the prey.

heliolisk_mxm85383Ag1rcwf0xo1_500

Heliolist head/neck area looks like a blacked hood, so potential nicknames are “Dark Hood” or “Sheaths”. The hood does resemble one of those axe-wielding midlevel-era “Executioners”. I have used “SPF-1Million” for the sunblock value you would need to witness Helios when he is doing his nuclear fusion.

helio IMG_0127

Because Heliolisk’s head can turn into a sun-like disk, my FAVORITE nickname for this Pokémon is “BlackHoleSun” after this great song by Soundgarden.

It is like the 1990s never ended right? How could anyone NOT like that video? If you don’t like that one, my head will explode all Kabooie Louie.

Pokémon Nicknames: Aerodactyl

aerodactyl tumblr_njku12Y2E11rjenv2o1_540

(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.

OK aerodactyl_evolution_by_princezx9

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.

mega_aerodactyl_by_tomy

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”.

uncertain aerodactyl

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 …

pteradactyl

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.) 

earn_your_red_wings_classic_thong

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.”

Pokémon Nicknames: Pancham and Pangoro

Premiere Of DreamWorks Animation's "Kung Fu Panda 2" - Arrivals

Pancham (in Japanese: ヤンチャムYancham”) is a baby-form Fighting-type Pokémon. The little panda Pokémon evolves into Pangoro (in Japanese: ゴロンダGoronda”) starting at level 32, but the player must have a Dark-type Pokémon in their party. Pangoro is a dual-type Fighting/Dark Pokémon.

X Y wallpaper for your computer!

X Y wallpaper for your computer!

I named my party-member Pancham “Chang Bang”. This is in reference to the Chinese river (and motorcycle brand) the “Chang Jiang”. Pandas are from China, so it fits. A friend of mine said that the names sounds too much like “gang-bang” as in these unruly gang-bangers who commit crimes in urban areas. Remember it is a FIGHTING type, so that is where the BANG comes from.

Speaking of the Chang Jiang, didn’t The Pretenders have a big hit in the 1980s “Back on the Chang Jiang”?  Wow — it sounds great …

My son named his party Pancham “Bam Boom” because Pandas eat bamboo, and the BOOM is for his punches.

Pancham fighting type

I named a female Pancham Lucy Liu after the beautiful actress (she even had a part in the “Kung Fu Panda” movie). I did not let my Lucy Liu evolve from the cute/baby form … well, because Ms. Liu is so cute, and I could not imagine her as a Pangoro.

If you did not want a Chinese sounding name, maybe use “Sprigsteen” as these pandas are always chewing on a sprig of bamboo in the game (and you can use your “Sprig Hat” in Pokemon XY).

I named another one “Manchuria” after the Northeast Region of China. The related name “Manchukuo” may also be good along that same line of reasoning. Perhaps you could use “Kung Fu Cham” or something similar. I suggest any Chinese name which might have a special meaning for your fighter. You may like the name “Ming Gardens” after my favorite local restaurant.

The names Ming Ming (for a female) and Ling Ling (for a male) may also be good names, as these are the names of world famous Giant Panda’s which lived in East Asian zoos. Get this: Zookeepers have a problem breeding Pandas in captivity.  The ones which were born in captivity were especially clueless on how to do the mystery dance with each other.

I am not making this up: Back in the 1980s, American Zookeepers once tried showing a “panda porno” film to a young panda couple, in hopes that it would teach them to learn – what goes where. Sadly, the panda pair were more interested in the projector than the film, so that idea failed. Darn, I wish I could have found that hot panda film to share with you. In lieu of that, please enjoy a photo of the stimulating Lucy Liu I found in GQ magazine.

Pokémon Nicknames: Vivillon

gibson flying V

Flying “V”

Vivillon (in Japanese: ビビヨンViviyon” ) is a dual-type BUG and FLYING type Pokémon. It is known as the “scale” Pokémon.  It evolves from Spewpa starting at level 12. It is the final form of Scatterbug.

vivillon evolutions

I have caught and named several Vivillon.  The one I caught and trained for my journey through Kalos was named “Flying V”.  I named it after a 1967 Gibson “Flying V” guitar (I have had my eye on).

I also suggest the name “Volaré” named after Dean Martin’s famous song. The lyrics remind me of a XY  Sky battle as you will read below:

Volaré means “to fly” in Italian. Lyrics like “your love has given me wings” are especially fitting. The Italian: “Nel blu dipinto di blu” is the actual name of the song – meaning “In the sky, painted blue”.  It would be great to have a blue-patterned Vivillon. Great song, … and every time I listen to Dean Martin I always get hungry for spaghetti.  The memories are still vivid … but I digress.  “Vivid Calores” could also be a name!  

Volaré is also good if you like the Plymouth automobile.  They were popular with the Italian-American kids I grew up with.  There used to be a joke in high school, where guys would say “There was a big recall for the Plymouth Volare … yeah, whenever the engine stalls, an Italian chick automatically jumps into the backseat.”  Now look, when I was a young adult, the vivid colors of my world were a lot like the movie “Goodfellas” … and  I digress once again …

Lovingly called

Lovingly called a little “_ _ _ _-mobile”

A French language (Kalos) fitting name would be “Vichyssoise” – the potato and leeks soup which is served cold in those super-expensive French restaurants. No youngsters, I kid you not.  A recipe is linked here.

I have also used the name “Versailles” as in the Palace at Versailles (take the tour here).

the palace

Of course, X & Y veterans are already familiar with the Kalos-region palace.

I have also named them “Vermilion” after the brilliant red-color pigment originally made from the powdered mineral Cinnabar (another possible name).  The color is widely used in Chinese art and lacquerware.  In fact, the color is sometimes termed “Chinese Red” – which is another possible nickname!

Notice how the artistic eye is drawn directly toward the Vermilion-colored garment.

Notice how the artistic eye is drawn directly toward the Vermilion color of the garment.  You might need a little more material for a kimono however.

I used a Premier Ball to catch a female Vivillon, and named it “Kimono” because — well — I love kimonos, as you know.  I think that the pattern would make a nice kimono.

I have also named a male Vivillon “Vernon” after my friend in 6th grade, and also for “Mt. Vernon” home of George Washington.

“Viva la __” might also be a good nickname.  Alternateively: “VivaLes___” , etc. You can choose what is the blank, whatever you want to “Viva la” to with your last five letters.

It is unfortunate that we cannot (as yet) re-name Pokémon, as you could name them in relation to what regional wing pattern they have.  Vivillon’s pattern depends on the real-world geographic location set in the game where the Pokémon was caught.

vivillon_plush__high_plains_pattern

I received a High Plains Pattern Vivillon via the GTS, but some idiot named it “NO, SORRY”.

There 20 known patterns.  It would be fun to collect and then name them something special!

vivillion fashion

Poor Vivillon: The National Pokedex number for Vivillion is 666. Which may be off-putting for those of the Christian persuasion, as 666 is the number that represents “the Beast”.

pokemon_vivillon_is_number_666

According to Christian mythology: during the latter days before the end of the world, Satan the Devil will send the anti-Christ to Earth in order to trick the gullible population into worshiping him,  — after which he will destroy us all … (No … that is not Obama, you joker, …No! …oh, you…).

pokemon vivillion condems you all

If there are over 700 Pokémon, someone had to be #666, so at least it is this very special, and very appealing Pokémon.
