Salinquay

Saline (salty, as brine shrimp (the identity of Sea-Monkeys) are named/known for living in very salty water) + monkey + quay (pronounced KEY, it's another name for a wharf), phonetically similar to slinky or selkie

sorry i did not see, this, just a bit too late
 
Concept: Karma Chameoleon: This Pokemon uses Protean not only to gain stab on specific attacks, but uses it fully to dodge enemy attacks, enemy status, and changes its typing fully in response to the opponent (by quziel)

You know, I wonder how the protean changes would also affect how Horusands plays out. He can keep his solid typing until he needs to recover with moonlight, at which point he arguably has a better defensive typing in general until he needs to switch out. At the same time, however, Pokemon can aim attacks at his fairy typing without having to worry about him changing types again with sucker punch (or any of his other, solid moves against slower targets).

Unsure of dex entry / name / regional vs convergent flavor but I thought of a couple entry outlines. Scarlet's refers to Rage Fist / Anger Shell, and Violet's takes inspiration from Toedscool and Wiglett's entries talking about the convergent evolution stuff.

Scarlet: It will not engage in a fight unless provoked first. Few creatures are able to flee successfully from [names]’s fury.

Violet: Although deep-sea explorers originally mistook its silhouette for Aurumoth’s in the shadowy depths, [name] is an entirely different species!

Sulumoth

Sulu + seamoth

The idea was to keep in close to Aurumoth

Seamoth keeps the moth ending while also incorporating the water typing. Also, a seamoth's body is encased in thick, bony plates working with the Anger Shell and Ghost elements.

Sulu was from the Sulu Sea in the Indo-Pacific. It created the visual similarity to Aurumoth while also being located in the general habitat of seamoths.
 
Caramoth

Carapeace + Aurumoth

Carapace works with the shell motif and all convergent mons have similarities to the name so the moth stays, maybe an explanation could be that it was thought to be a moth before it was discovered to be a different species.

Also, a couple dex entries based on current art subs:
- Regional Aurumoth(Assumes it evolves from Argalis)
Scarlet: It rests far down in the depths of the ocean, bursting out of its dense shell to feed on the life energy of nearby prey.

Violet: These Aurumoth are more commonly found after sudden monsoons. They display a more volatile temperment than their [Unovan] counterparts.
- Convergent
Scarlet: It has a hair-trigger temper but easily forgets what made it angry. It hunts Shellder both for food and to use its shells as multi-purpose weapons.

Violet: Once thought to be a regional form of Aurumoth by divers, [Name] is now believed to have adapted its current shape to deter predators.
