A good water pokémon type nickname would be Charybdis or Scylla, with bonus points if they know whirlpool.

Been there. Except Scylla's my female hydreigon Nickname. Minus points for no whirlpool references, but it IS a multi headed monster.

That, err, isn't Hydra.
Which is also water themed.
And still appropriate.
Bit of a bullet dodged there, I think.

True but, hydreigon. It's like calling Feraligator "Alligator". Which isn't to say it's bad, of course.

But anyway I like Scylla for Hydreigon.

Oh good a thread for name ideas. Now I don't have to resort to mashing randomly at the touchscreen to choose a name that makes no sense. (ESCYINCH is probably not the greatest name in hindsight...)

Will be back when eggs start hatchin'.

So I just beat Black Tower and got my shiny Gible, but I have no idea what to name him. Any suggestions?

Hmmm. Some cool name taken from a Mach speed fighter jet? Or maybe a notable pilot? Or Selachi but that doesn't have the right ring to it. Jaws is always appropriate, as is Snappy, Cruncher or Morton.
Dibs on Fluffy.

Okay
Just throwing this out there
In gen 4, I called my Gengar Chess.
In a similar vein of thought, my Politoed's name is Belle.
Think about this for a minute.

Okay. Now, if you DON'T get my thought processes, here you go: http://thephoenix3000.tumblr.com/post/58050907431/silvermisery21-artist-kuitsuku! I'd never seen this before today but it's nice to know other people think in the same way as you.

if you guys could all just call your Noiverns "Noizoid"
that would make me so happy.

mine's special though, so i'm calling him Gargan.
i am the leader and you all can be my adorable  minions.

you know, on closer inspection, i'm almost entirely sure the design similarity was intentional. OH U, GAME FREAK
LOOK AT THEM:






and then we have noivern

his design is obviously a lot tamer to fit with the general pokemon style, but you can't deny the similarities. the colors, the weird proportions, the spiky-ness, not to mention the main fact that it's a pokemon based on NOISE.

ah, that's...
only the enemy design
all the normal stuff is just generic cutsey balls.
it still feels surprisingly epic with the background music though:

anyway, it's a rhythm platformer; there's a demo in 3ds eshop.
this reminds me i wanted to check out Drill Dozer, GF's other non-pokemon game.

Haha randomly played the demo today and recognised your avatar. Good timing.

BadumBadum-tish!
But I don't see the noivern thing :/ if they wanted it to be obvious then it would be. Look a rotom.

Nickname as Shrumpus Y/N?

look at rotom as a reference to what?

i don't see how noivern's resemblance ISN'T obvious. it's black with neon highlights/accents, it's got weird ornamentation, and it's BASED ON NOISE

also, the dude who directed HarmoKnight designed the vullaby, vanillite, and golett lines.
this image warms my heart:

edit: omg the mamoswine is playing a sax. someone get gela in here.

Rotom's a reference to Pulseman, another game Gamefreak did

And so is Volt Tackle most likely.... And Team Galactic's japanese name
