Due to time/workload constraints I have to take another two-week break from blogging. I will still try to check messages and delete spam, but I will not be posting anything new for a while.  April 15th and all that.  Ah-Ha! … but before you breathe that sign of relief… know that I may still be viewing and providing opinion on YOUR posts however. There may be some creative “re-blogging”

Pokémon Nicknames: Riolu and Lucario

Pokémon.Nicknames: Riolu and Lucario

cool-hand-luke--japanese-poster

Lucario ( in Japanese: ルカリオ  “Lucario”) is a dual Fighting & Steel type Pokémon. Lucario evolves from the (baby form ) Fighting type Riolu (in Japanese: リオル  “Riolu”) when leveled up with high friendship during the DAY. Lucario does not evolve, but can mega-evolve into Mega Lucario using the Lucarionite stone.

I named a Riolu “Rolo” after a character on the famous TV show “Sanford and Son”. Rolo was often on the receiving end of Fred Sanford’s (comedian Redd Foxx) famous “You big dummy” line.

I have also used “Rolo” thinking of the caramel filled candy rolls by Hershey:

I named the Lucario I received in Pokemon Y, “Cool Hand” after the famous character played by Paul Newman in the movie “Cool Hand Luke” (movie trailer link here). The 1968 film was about a young anti-hero who is sent to a Southern prison farm for – get this – cutting the heads off of parking meters. The movie is a goldmine of famous pop culture sayings, such as “I think what we have here is a failure to communicate!”.  My favorite line is “I’M SHAKIN THE TREE, BOSS” … but I digress.

What? You’ve never SEEN it? What are they teaching kids in school these days?

I also think that Cool Hand is a good name, because Lucario is a fighter/boxer.

Of course you can name a newly born Riolu if you hatch an egg!

I named another Riolu/Lucario “Sir Luke” after the famous scene in Star Wars.

Remember when C3PO first conversed with Luke Skywalker? C3PO said at one point “I see Sir …”.  Luke laughs (as if anyone would call him “Sir”), and says “… Luke” (meaning just call me Luke). C3PO misunderstands, and says “I see — Sir Luke” – to which young Skywalker laughs again: “No … just Luke”.  It is a great foreshadowing moment because knights are called “Sir” and Luke Skywalker will one day become a Jedi Knight!

I may be at a lost as to what to nickname a SEXY Lucario however:

Use "FORCE PALM"? ... I was already there!

Use “FORCE PALM”? … I was already there!
