    Bear in mind, though, that despite being based on a whale and about as big as you'd expect a whale to be, Wailord doesn't even reach 400 kg. So you're suggesting that this fat, flying machine is heavier than five whale-based, whale-sized Pokemon.

    Sure, you could say that Wailord should be heavier, but if Pokemon weights are going to be wrong compared to real-life ones, we can at least make them consistently wrong.

    I like Stratostrich
    Also Ferroost(Er) or Silicowl.

    I'll suggest Rhenstorm, as it has a bit of play-on-words going on.

    Rhenium - one of the refractory metals
    Storm - well, a storm.
    Rainstorm - sounds similar to Rhenstorm. (REEN-storm)

    While it isn't water-type, a rainstorm suggests its involvement and since this flash CAP is immune to fire, and flying-type (Hurricane, a flying-type move), it fits to some degree.

    They wanted this kitchen CAP to be stupidly heavy to capitalize on Heavy Slam's damage output. I don't think making another Pokemon with Wailord's lighter-than-air syndrome is a smart move when everything about it is built around it's ability to fight.

    I think it would be great if we could base the name on "plumbum", the latin word for lead, a very dense metal. However, I am not creative enough to come up with one...

    How about Plumebum?
    Plume + plumbum, ya know……

    Rhenstorm sounds good. Let's speculate and give the Fire move with the highest temperature at 1800°C. Given that our Flash Fire Steel/Flying type is a made of rhenium, Fire moves don't affect it, making a lot more sense.

    Plumeboom, maybe? Just so it doesn't have the word "bum" in it?

    I will suggest Ferthur because it contains all three Ferum+Feather+Further.

    Further because birds tend to fly long distances

    I think Plumeboom is interesting; Should it's pre-evo (should it get one) be named Flaressor?
    (French for "boom", and "flare)

    On a seperate note, don't CAP pokemon get exclusive signature moves and abililities (i.e. Mountineer)? I think Plumeboom get one.
    As for its name, Phuymessor or Plumebomb (sounds like a Poison-type to me)?

    Maybe instead of Aironado, we could use Aeronado. I really do like Rhenstorm though.
