It's Christmas, and I have a Bag [Mods Please Close]

Status
Not open for further replies.
Scrafty: That Swag (just look at that sprite)
Swampert: Fin (pretty obvious, would really love this one, Swampert was my first Pokémon and I have been for a good one for ages)
Jellicent: Mr. Pringles (I just had to go there...)
 
Scrafty: Da Brat

The alias name of a female rapper from the '90s(I think it was the 90s). This particular Scrafty is female, so I figured I could name it after someone tomboy-ish at the very least....although Da Brat is in a whole different category IMO(she dresses like any other dude you would see on the street)

Jellicent: Bill Cosby

The "best" nickname for this guy is so oversaturated right now(and played out, tbh). Bill Cosby was on all the commercials for Jell-O gelatin back in the '90s(again, I think it was the '90s lol) that a lot of us ate as a kid. Man that was some good stuff :)<br />
<br />
Bouffalant: Afro

He is the MAIN CHARACTER of Afro Samurai. 'Nuff said(Swords Dance on this guy makes it even more fitting)
 
Pinsir--ArmorShell
reason: it has a shell, and a shell is armor

Swampert--Finfiesta
reason: its a party animal with fins

Alakazam--Strongth
reason: so strongth it can bend spoons!

if i win anything, i would like to choose someone else to take my prizes.
or you can keep them with the nicknames i give.
 
Alakazam: Avadakedavra (Harry Potter)
Excadrill: Bulldoze / Bulldozer (It flattens other Pokémon in it's path)
Slowbro: Lazy Sis (It's lasy and it's female)
 
Alakazam - Brostache (I think we all know why....)
Swampert - Big Show (How 'bout a DOUBLE EDGE?)
Excadrill - MontyMole (From Super Mario Bros! :D )
 
(General) - Named after "General" Larry Platt of "Pants on the ground" fame. We all know that Scrafty's pants hang entirely too low. He's lookin' like a fool with his pants on the ground.

Jolly Scrafty w/ Moxie ♀ (5th Gen)
IVs: 28/31/31/22/31/31 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Dragon Dance, Drain Punch, Ice Punch, Crunch
Honestly? I was thinking of Sugoruko due to Scrafty's Japanese name but it somehow doesn't fit.
Semi-Redis

(Uri) - Named after Uri Geller, the psychic/stage performer. He was the man who popularized bending spoons as an act of "mental" strength.

Timd Alakazam w/ Magic Guard ♂ (5th Gen)
IVs: 29/22/31/31/31/31 4 HP / 252 SpA / 252 Spe
Psychic / Grass Knot / Encore / Focus Blast
Probably the only thing on here I have never actually used in a battle
Semi-Redis


(Williams) - Williams is the name of Jim Kelly's character in Enter The Dragon. Jim Kelly was the best known actor of martial arts inspired blaxploitation films of the 70s.

Adamant Bouffalant w/ Sap Sipper ♂ (5th Gen)
IVs: 31/31/31/18/31/28 252 HP / 252 Atk / 4 SpDef
Swords Dance / Head Charge / Earthquake / Megahorn
Semi-Redis

Edit: I also second the GurenLaggen reference for the drillmole.
 
Slobro-Laxus
reason- is latin word for lax which is a synonym for slack
swampert-Mike
reason-He reminds me of mike tyson. idk y though.
 
Jellicent: 'Nimbus' is a genus for all clouds which produce precipitation; Jellicient is cloud-like in appearance, and so this name feels to suit it and the set.

Swampert: 'Titan' as in something of greatness or large stature, it is the best name I could find that felt right with the set.

Slowbro: 'Aegis' is, in the Iliad, a name for a shield or buckler worn by Athena or Zeus - in this case, I'd say the shield of Athena because it is female (also: Aegis and Athena). Additionally, this set is intended to act as a tank to take attacks; similar in function to a shield.

I had fun thinking up names for these Pokemon.
Hope you have a happy holiday season =)
 
Jellicent: Burt, after Burt Reynolds, because any time i look at a male Jellicent all i can see is the mustache.
Pinsir: Nightmare. I personally hate bugs, and of all the pokemon I have always thought this was the scariest.
Alakazam: Kasparov, after the Chess playing genius.
 
i've been on a bit of a hiatus, but i used to be pretty active. then my thread got deleted. :(

anyway, i haven't read the thread, so hopefully these won't be repeats.


Jolly Scrafty w/ Moxie ♀ (5th Gen)
IVs: 28/31/31/22/31/31 4 HP / 252 Atk / 252 Spe
Dragon Dance, Drain Punch, Ice Punch, Crunch
Semi-Redis
NN: Cockamamie (because he looks ridiculous, and a bit like a rooster ("cock") and it's a fun word to say)


Adamant Excadrill w/ Sand Rush ♂ (5th Gen)
IVs: 31/31/29/10/31/31 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Swords Dance / Earthquake / Rock Slide / X-Scissor
For a time, this was probably my best Black breed ever, if not one of my favorites. Rarely used this thing before it went Uber though, kind of blows now.
Semi-Redis
NN: Shrew'd (i like plays on words.)


Jolly Gyarados w/ Moxie ♂ (5th Gen)
IVs: 31/31/22/20/31/31 252 Atk / 4 Def / 252 Spe
Waterfall / Dragon Dance / Stone Edge / Earthquake
Actually not a Gyarados yet, will be EV trained soon.
Fully Redis
NN: Falkor (the luck dragon from The Never Ending Story. i'm working on a theme'd team and he would be the star)
 
Slowbro: NoBro - Due to it being female it can't be a 'bro'.
Alakazam: Spoons4Lyf - Bad spelling but that's the point, no real reason for it though.
Scrafty: RiotKid - Given that it has hoodie and there have been many riots around the world this year, I think it's a current events sort of nickname that works.
 
Swampert: Poseidon Greek god of the sea. Swampert is pretty beastly, so I think it works.

Slowbro: Ferris Reference to Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Because it "slacks off", get it? <crickets chirping>

Alakazam: Criss References Criss Angel. He's always doing these crazy illusions, and I thought Alakazam might do something similar.
 
Bouffalant: JimiHendrix
Awesome afro, and Sap Sipper fits nicely in with the weed and shrooms Jimi imbibed ;D

Scrafty: Eggstaff
After a hobo I met traveling cross-country via Greyhound bus. Told me how to avoid a fight, or gain a psychological advantage in one. We are still in touch. Anyway, I can't look at this pokemon without thinking of him, so yeah.

Krookodile: Phallugatr
Because of it's redickulous phallus of a snout. I think this is obscenity free, but please let me know if I am crossing the line so that I can fix it.
