Pokémon Nicknames: Dhelmise

Ahoy cousins! Aye, I hope yer not be afeared of the deep, as I recon me names for this ship’s ghost …

Ha – I bet I sounded just like one of those “Pirates of The Caribbean” movie characters. I think that they have a new movie … or something coming out … or recently. I really don’t follow that series. I heard it was going to be “Rated R” … because it is about pirates … and …  see … and pirates say “AHHRR” a lot … and hoo boy.

Dhelmise (in Japanese: ダダリン  “Dadarin”) is a dual-type GHOST and GRASS-type Pokémon introduced for the Alola Generation VII (source: Bulbapedia). Dhelmise is genderless, and does not evolve into or from any other known Pokémon. Basically, Dhelmise is the rusty anchor of a sunken ship, combined with the ships (steering) wheel — and covered in seaweed. One of its eyes appears to be a compass. (A full description from Bulbapedia is linked here.) Although Dhelmise is ghost and grass (seaweed) it is surprisingly not a WATER-type It can learn moves such as “Whirlpool”.  This is appropriate, as I see Dhelmise trying to pull foes down to a watery grave. Ha Ha — or as I should say — ARRR … Another odd characteristic about this Pokémon is that its signature ability is “Steelworker” which boosts STEEL-type moves by 50%. That makes sense, as an anchor is made of iron. Thus a good move set for this Pokémon should include Ghost, Grass, Water and Steel moves.

My favorite name for this ghost Pokémon is “Hard-To-Port“. I envision that this phrase was the last order the doomed ship’s captain gave, just before the vessel wrecked, sending all hands down to Davy Jones’ Locker. (No, not that Davy Jones, silly.)

Sailing-type names are cute. Do you know your port-side from your aft?

No, ya scurvy dogs —  I said “Fire the aft cannon — the AFT!!!”

Another fun nickname might be based on the old Village People song “In The Navy”  linked here.

When you think of sailors you think of the various nautical-themed tattoos that they decorate themselves with. Tattoos are really not my thing personally, but I still admire the art.

(Denny humming/singing):  “In the navy — Yes, you can sail the seven seas … In the navy — Yes, you can put your mind at ease … In the navy…”

Dhelmise may be hard for Alola adventurers to find.  A how-to video from YT is linked here — just don’t use a Quick Ball like that guy, because Quick Balls look stupid, unless your Pokémon is actually blue-and yellow in color. Don’t get me started.

So long for now cousins —  or at least “until the sea gives up its dead …”

Note to my Readers: Since my last post a couple of weeks ago, I have gone over a QUARTER MILLION views on this blog. Take THAT Dave Barry!

Denny watches a pretty girl pee.

Readers: This very cool and funky song is merely my suggested music track for you to listen to as you read this post. Click and enjoy. Which reminds me …

Whoa. I have not posted on WP for a long time. I am in SO MUCH trouble at work. I need to get caught up on all these agricultural fertilizer reports. Yup, I gave up blogging for a while. I have been  a good employee — keeping my nose to the Moonstone. Look, I am even bringing work home where I can do company work on my own PC!

The work is very boring. and I get distracted so easily by these pop ups. Wait — this looks interesting.  An ad for “KornHub”? Well it must be agricultural then, so I will just click over there and … OH MY GOD!!!

Wait — this is interesting. I don’t usually look at video sites like these (Denny coughs). Besides, there is probably something agricultural in here. Ok … typing “nitrogen” into the search box … and …  Hello.

It says if I click there, I can watch a sexy Asian lady urinate. Oh, no no. I could NOT do that. Really. Not my thing. Look I am not a prude, but I draw the line at bodily functions. I could never watch that. That would be perverted. True, I know that it is only “Number 1” … but still.  I am NOT a pervert. These videos are not for me. I don’t have any fetishes.

Besides, although men’s bodies are disgusting, ladies are perfect. Women’s bodies are beautiful, fragrant works of art.  (Denny momentarily loses touch with reality). Pretty girls don’t PEE. Their little hoo-hoos don’t really make that bad stuff  do they? (Denny in denial) How could this video even exist?

I’m NOT going to watch this!

Uh … maybe … unless … maybe YOU want to look, my dear Readers … er .… I mean … this one time would not hurt could it? If you say that it is OK … watching a pretty girl take a pee, I will do it. That does not make me a bad person, right? Right? 

OK then (Denny exhales), here goes. CLICK.

Huh …you know, these urinal-on-the-floor-toilets always seemed weird to me. Japan is otherwise so highly technological – so why is it that some basins look like a hole in the floor? … and OH! …

I think she likes me, she looked right at me and smiled. So pretty. Whoa … the panties are down … uh … hoo-boy … well, that answers the “hairy or shaved” question. Mystery solved!.

Wow — she IS vert cute.  Hmmmm … so beautiful in there ... so interesting … she seems like she has good balance. I wonder what led her here?

OK, this event should start any minute. (Denny watching, waiting).

Alright … gunna happen soon … (Denny glances at watch).

… Hmmmm  … still waiting here. It is a nice view and everything, but nothing is happening.

Ha. Penny for your thoughts, dear girl. She is smiling, but she should be thinking about running water. It’s gotta start any second now …

Uh … still waiting. (Denny’s mind wanders) Gee, I wonder how many miles I put on the Volkswagen last week. Darn it — I should go check … I think I am due for an oil change … and OH MY there it goes!!!

So …

Uh huh … OK … right … OK … so … so that is what it looks like. Ahem.

Starlight: I really do need to get back to work.

This is a photo of the famous Kegon Falls in Japan. What?

I (HEART) Junko

Silly me, I thought Ms. Junko Akimoto was an “Enka” singer. Music experts say that she is actually a “Kayōkyoku” singer. Enka is based on a pre-war Japanese traditional singing style called “Ryukoka”, while Kayokyoku is a much more modern pop music by instrumentation and singing style. Enka has been likened to tango, Kayokyoku is likened to jazz.  I’m not sure I could explain the distinction. I can remember back in 1979 when I could tell you the difference between Punk and New Wave music. But I digress … 

Call it what you will, I think that Junko-san is grand. She’s beautiful.

junko-51zaikqorzl-_sy355_

I’ve grown to appreciate these genres — mostly because I can’t stand what is popular in America. These songs are all about secret longings, broken hearts, guilt and atonement. It is a lot like country music actually.

I first found out about Ms. Akimoto-san from an Iwasa Misaki music video.

You will hurt my feelings if you do not watch this. You all know that I am a big fan of Iwasa Misaki, and that Wasamin has launched a successful Enka singing career. It was mostly through Misaki-san that I have grown to appreciate the traditional Enka Japanese singing style.

In Miss Iwasa’s video cover of “Ai no Mama de (The Way Love Was?) it was widely quoted that Wasamin is “tutored by Japanese Enka singer Junko Akimoto”. This particular song, lyrics linked here — was Ms. Akimoto-san’s most famous single. “Ai no Mama de ..” reached the top of the Oricon weekly single charts in January 2009. She became the oldest singer (at age 61) to top the charts in Japan. Well … this still makes her a spring chicken in comparison to any of The Rolling Stones.

Starlight: Oh what time is it? I think that Hee-Haw is on.

Pokémon Nicknames: Togedemaru

ok_pokemon__togedemaru_in_alola_cosplay_by_krazykari-daov155

All credit goes to the original cosplayer … and  Hey – you electric type — GET AWAY FROM THE POOL when I am in here!

ALOLA COUSINS!!! — wooh! —  whatzit?1? — (Denny reacts to scurrying underfoot, nearly spilling his Pokébeer). What is it with Pokémon and electric mice? First there was Pikachu – along with its pre-evolved and evolved forms, Pichu and Raichu respectively. Then in Pokemon XY, there was Dedenne. Techinically, the little surfing mouse and regional variant “Alolan Raichu” is yet another mouse. (I’m not sure if the water mice — like Marill could inherit an electric move)

Now for the Alola region, there is another little electric ball mouse. Togedemaru!

tog-tumblr_o9lppepjel1ufy5xqo3_250

From Bulbapedia: Togedemaru (same as the Japanese word: トゲデマル  “Togedemaru”) is an Electric and STEEL type Pokémon. There are no known evolutionary forms.

alolaelectricballmouse

I actually think that “Togedemaru” is already a pretty cool name, so I was resistant to nicknaming it. However, when there are sooo many of them – yah — (Denny whirls suddenly, as more mice dart underfoot) … you need to be able to sort them out.

I have named them the same name as my mouse or electric Pokémon – names such as “Eek!-A-Mouse” (after the punk-rock band) or “Voltaire” (after the French philosopher).  Cutesy names like “Sparky”, “Cheeky” or “Mookie” are always applicable.

toge-img_0323

Other suggestions:

Rotund” because it is a fat, spherical little mouse. Other names based on spheres, circles or balls might work. “Circle Shock” base on the famous LA punk band “Circle Jerks

Zig Zag” after the tail.

Plug-N-Play” for various electronic devices. “Plug-Ins” after the room deodorizer.

Topo Gigio” after the famous mouse who used to appear on the Ed Sullivan Show. This led me to think of “Gigli” after one of the worst movies of all time, staring one of the most arrogant and idiotic actors of our time.

You might name Togedemaru based on which moves you teach it. It can learn the move “Rollout” early on, so you might use the name “Rollerball” after the classic sci-fi movie.  “Topspin” or “Holy Roller” are other examples. The Pokémon may have the “Iron Barbs” ability, which will make your opponent think twice before hitting you with a physical move. You could name females “Barb” or “Barbs” , “Rhubarb” and the like.

My favorite name is “Lectricshave” after the shaving lotion commercial. Electric shaving comes to mind since Togedemaru is both Electric and Steel type. Ahem … (Denny takes long slug of his Pokébeer). Ladies, use that electric shaver today, and see just how enthusiastic that makes your fellow tonight. I guarantee there will create some electricity.

My other favorite name for Togedemaru is “Toga Toga” or “Toga! Toga!” after a scene in the “Animal House” movie. Clip linked here.

toge-img_0321

(Denny finished Pokébeer) Well, I never say that you have to use my names —  I only want to inspire your own creative names.

Pokémon Nicknames: Stufful and Bewear

partofcorocoro9162

Today on “Pokémon Nicknames”, I consider Stufful and Bewear. (Denny knocks Sapporo beer can over, but picks it up quickly with little spillage): Oops … sorry … I’m a klutz, and sometimes have a hard time holding onto items. No I’m not drunk … Oh .. right (Denny in stilted falsetto): Alola … er …ALOLA COUSINS! Today I will suggest nicknames for two cute, cuddly – but DANGEROUS Pokémon.

Be warned … or “Be Ware” – ha ha, because I have a mind … that wanders …

On the Bulbapedia web site it says that Stufful (in Japanese: ヌイコグマ  “Nuikoguma”) is a Normal + Fighting dual-type Pokémon. Stufful is the “Flailing Pokémon” supposedly because it would flail around its cute stuffed-animal-like arms. Many Pokémon fans like to buy plush dolls of their favorite Pokémon. Maybe it is time for a Pokémon that is already a stuffed animal!

does-stufful-have-a-tag

Stufful even has a tag!

Stufful evolves into Bewear (in Japanese: キテルグマ  “Kiteruguma”) at level 27, where it remains a Normal + Fighting dual-type. Beware is the “Strong Arm” Pokémon. Bulbapedia says: “While Bewear may appear friendly, it is actually a very dangerous Pokémon. It must never be approached carelessly, even if it is merely swinging its arms around in a friendly fashion. It shows affection with a fond embrace, but its hugs have incredible force.” The story goes that many trainers have been severely injured, and some were even killed by Beware’s loving hugs.

Stufful is the perfect Pokémon for those of us who love Japanese Popular Culture! Its ears even look like those “headband ears” which are so popular with cosplayers, maid café goers, Japanese schoolgirls and/or the otaku of the Akihabara district of Tokyo.  Cat (neko) ears are probably the most common headband ears, but mouse, fox, bear or other fuzzy animal ears are also common.

cosplayer-with-white-headband-ears

Her cosplay ears are the biggest giveaway that she would love to meet and date a fellow nerd like you!

You should use Tokyo Pop Culture type names for the Pokémon. Names like “Akihabara”, “Shibuya”, or “Harajuku” would be appropriate. I also named one of these bears “Otaku”. “Yuri” or “Yoai” would also be fun, if you enjoy those genres of anime and/or manga.

 stuffbearimg_0302

Stufful is a plush doll, so maybe you could use “Doll Parts” after the song by the 1990s alt-rock band Hole (linked here). Cutesy names like “I Wuv You” , “Cuddles” or “Fuzzy Wuzzy” should also work when you bear evolves. “Huggie Bear” is based on the archtypical and quintesential “pimp” character from the 1970s TV police series “Starsky and Hutch“.

A good name would be “Gyu” or “Gyu Gyu Gyu” which is loosely translated as “hugs” or “squeezes”. It is one of those Japanese words which do not translate directly into English. When you give someone a hug there is that wonderful moment, when the hug “becomes a hug” and the mutual feeling of love is exchanged — Gyu!

Another Japnese pop culture name might be “Moe” which loosely describes affectionate aspects of otaku culture.

The Pokémon pink color is off course very “kawaii” but the bright pink is juxtaposed with dark brown portions of its body.  This combination put me off at first, but I understand it is popular, and I have learned to love it.

stuffbearimg_0295

This color juxtaposition led me to name one of my party Pokémon “PinkAndStink”.

(Denny turns to drinking buddies): You know guys, “the pink” is about the most wonderful thing that there is in this existence. It also is located in very close proximity to “the stink”.  (Gulps) They are both delightful in their own ways … (Sapporo can drops again, but is quickly put upright) … they both have their own unique charms. You may have directed yourself to the pink. You probably spend most of your time there, and the points north, but don’t tell me you have not also explored the stink. There is also that wonderful, sensitive border area, right in between the pink and the stink. You can tell a lot about a lady by how well she manages that marchland … You don’t have to be a conquering hero, but it is a great way to bond with her. You might even end up surprising yourself.

Oh … right … Pokémon names … (Denny raises hand, orders another Sapporo).

fuzzy-wuzzy-img_0319

A Pokémon with Fluffy takes half damage from moves that make contact. It also takes double damage from Fire-type moves. Fire-type moves that make contact will deal regular damage. (Bulbapedia)

Pokémon Nicknames: Bruxish

Alola cousins! (Denny imitating Professor Kukui): “Have you tried the fish tacos?”

bruxishtumblr_o9l93mvilp1ttdkobo1_400

Bruxish (in Japanese: ハギギシリ “Hagigishiri” is a Water and Psychic dual type. Thus far, there are no known evolutionary forms. It is given “Gnash Teeth” as its Pokémon category. Gnash teeth? I can hear Mrs. Sinnoh’s teeth gnashing whenever I am playing Pokémon and I’m supposed to be doing chores and home repair.

I was excited and very interested to see this new Alola region Pokémon. It looks weird, and maybe a little unnatural, but that is what I like about it. Some Pokémon resemble their real animal counterparts a little too much. Bruxish is based on a real life Hawaiian Reef Triggerfish. Bruxish’s wild psychedelic coloration also remind me of a real-life Parrotfish as well. Bruxish’s body is more “head-shaped” than fish-shaped it seems. Its mouth reminds me of the Kissing Fishand and the sharp teeth remind me of a Piranha.

Bruxish has an odd flower-like protuberance on the top of its head. It is this organ which is the source of its psychic power. Bruxish’s full biology is described at the Bulbapedia site linked here.

My old hippie friend thinks that you should catch this fish, dry-cure the protuberance – then SMOKE IT for a really mellow buzz. I disagree. I am anti-drugs for one thing, plus I think that Poké-animals should be treated a little more kosher. They are spiritual beings, and they should not exist merely to be over-harvested, or in order to make us feel good about ourselves… but I digress.

lady-caught-a-triggerfish

I used my psychic powers to nab this fish.

I nicknamed a female Bruxish with “Outstanding” potential “Kiss-Me-Kate” after the famous musical of the same name. Here is a song from the movie version. My Kiss-Me-Kate is a ladyfish with the “Strong Jaw” ability, which enhances her “biting” moves. “Psychic Fangs” is her signature move.

bruxishimg_0286

I named another “RazzleDazzel” because the fish’s coloration may dazzle opponents. It has the “Dazzling” ability, which surprises the enemy and makes the opponents’ “priority moves” useless.

bruxishimg_0289

You could name these fish after famous impressionist artists – “Picassofish” after the painter. I think that “Matisse” would be a good arty name, and would work for males or females. You can think of your favorite artist. I named one “ColorMeGone” after the alt-rock group. You may like “ColorMeBad” rather.

Haruka suggested the name "Fish Taco" I dont know why.

Haruka also suggested the name “Fish Taco” I don’t know why.

I named one toothy fish “Britishsmiles” after an episode of “The Simpsons”. Ralph Wiggims was wary of going to a dentist, and lied about brushing his teeth regularly. The dentist pulled out a photo book titled “The Big Book of British Smiles”. The joke being this book would scare children into taking care of their teeth, so that they would not end up looking like a Cockney prostitute. That humorous clip is LINKED HERE.

british-smiles3d6d8114947f7bfa0ea60dc1c42c501c

Also along the British theme, I named a Bruxish “Brexit” because I just thought the fit the fish. It will beat you, then exit. Of course, the real Brexit will never happen, as Britain’s central government does not want the U.K. to leave the EU and will delay the process until it can be voted down in another election. … and yes, I do digress again …

bruxishimg_0290

The hippie movement and psychedelia thing could be mined for more “SummerOfLove” and other groovy names.”Love + Peace” for example. If only there were some way to get this HKT48 song piped into the White House and the Kremlin at the same time.

Some other names I might suggest, but have not used yet include:

Humuhumu” would be a great (shortened) name for the real triggerfish’s Hawaiian name:  “humuhumunukunukuāpuaʻa”. 

humuhumutriggerfish

The song is LINKED HERE.

Trig” as Bruxish resembles a trigger-fish, although that name sounds a little too macho for such a gay-colored fish.

bruxish-lost-in-translation-1467300164179

Um … I think this was a translation error from the original Japanese Sun Moon anime.

Dragqueen” due to its lip coloration, and arguably the fish resembles a guy wearing makeup. Covered with makeup, but you can still tell it is a guy. They are pretty good about not gnashing there their teeth though. Ahem … you should see what types of images dirty-minded people are posting about Bruxish on Tumblr … and yes, I digress again.

bruxishimg_0280

You have to watch how you pet these Snapper-fish.

Headshop” due to its shape, and its psychedelic coloration. “Bad Acid” as in the quote “remember the time you took that bad acid, and you got up on top of the roof, and said that you were Jesus Christ and that you could fly?”

What … wait … Fish tacos? You mean those are really real, Haruka ? … I always thought “Fish Taco” was just a euphemism.

Pokémon Nicknames: Drilbur and Excadrill

excadrill-hoodie

Photo credit goes to the hoodie maker!

Today, let us drill down and mine more nicknames for Pokémon Black and Pokémon White characters. Drilbur (in Japanese: モグリュー  “Mogurew”) is a Ground-type Pokémon. Drillbur’s category is “Mole Pokémon”. Drilbur was a popular baby form.

mole-1-img_0247

Drilbur evolves into Excadrill when raised to level 31. Excadrill (in Japanese: ドリュウズ “Doryuzu”) is a dual-type Ground and STEEL Pokémon. Excradrill’s category is “Subterrene Pokémon”. (“Subterrene” might actually be a good nickname right there!)

mole-2-img_0248

Drilbur is a mole, so as my mind wandered a bit, and I thought of the “mole” concept used in chemistry.

I named a Drilbur  “6.02 x 10~23” (unfortunately you cannot use exponents in the nickname creator). Oh – but I had to use the upper-case letter “O” in place of zero!  I found out that there is a limit to how many numbers you can use in a nickname. I never thought of it before, but someone could otherwise use a phone number as a name, so it makes sense.

mole_postcard_avagadros_number

Chemistry class? … remember that chick you tutored in Chem 101? Sing it Elvis — “Are you ready for the final solution?”

ec-inspired-chemistry-class

E.C.: “Sparks are flying from electrical pylons … snakes and ladders running up and down the nylons …

“The chemical term “mole” is usually abbreviated as “mol” which saves all kinds of space in scientific writing …

gretchen-mol

Wait — that is American actress Gretchen Mol. Sorry my mind wandered in class again.

Right …  forgive my digression … a mol has a value of 6.022140857(74)×1023 mol−1  — also known as Avagadros Constant. Thus, I have named some Drilburs “Avagadro” or “Avagadro’s #”.

Perhaps you could name your mole after famous people with moles. “De Niro” or “De Niro’s Mole” for example. (Denny is NOT making this up – “Robert De Niro’s Mole” has its own Facebook page, I just looked.) The term “mole” can also mean “Double Agent” in various spy thriller novels. Excadril is a dual-type Pokémon, so why not?

Whack-a-Mole” could be a funny name .. or maybe just “Whack“.

whack-a-mole-model

Everyone loves whacking to that arcade game!

Ahem … moles are similar to “shrews” which are another type of burrowing rodent. I named a female Drilbur “Tammy Shrew” after “The Taming of the Shrew” by Shakespeare. Ha. William Shakespeare — come -on Bill, don’t say that. There is no part of a lady that looks like a furry rodent.

tos-stephen-boxer-and-michell

If he was actually trying to tame her shrew, he sure missed way too high.

I sometimes name a female Drilbur “Lovely Rita” after the Beatles song “Lovely Rita Meter Maid“. Drilbur looks like it has a sash across the chest, as in a crossing-guard or meter-maid’s uniform. As Paul sang: “With the bag across her shoulder, it made her look a little like a military man … wank, wank, wonk, wonk”. I used “Edward S.” after the movie Edward Scissorhands, but then realized it was pretty stupid.

Excadrill names I have used include “Excedrin” after the headache medicine. Yup, an Excedrin and a Gatorade will set you up for a another big lunch after you have had a hard night.

excedrin-meme-baby

Ha Ha. This angry little guy was made into a meme. Ha.

I sometimes use “Roto-Rooter” after the famous plumbing company. Seriously, they can use that burrowing drill to unclog any hairy plumbing mess.

scene-other-woman-plumber

If you have seen the movie, you know that pipes are about to be cleaned.

These moles like to burrow, so I was thinking the more literary spelling “Burroughs” after author Edgar Rice Burroughs. The name “Furrows” or “Good Furrows” is elegant, I think and inspires fantasies about farming.

I have used “Drillbits” for cute little Drilbur, and “Drill Press” for the more intense drilling that the larger Excadrill can do. “BlackNDecker” might be a good name for a drill, as the Black and Decker company makes tools.
