Picking the Right Pokemon Name For Your Cat
Few pop culture gems such as Pokemon stick around for so long, making it a great source of inspiration for your new cat’s name.
That said, choosing the right name for your new kitten, based on the pokemon universe, may be quite challenging in comparison to picking a classic (or random) cat name.
We’ve put together several sub-sections, below, to help walk you through the process of choosing the right pokemon name for your new kitty:
Research the Pokémon World
The first step to choosing a great pokémon name for your cat is in understanding the world of pokémon, to begin with.
If you are a long-time fan, you probably already know your stuff. For newer fans, watching some of the old cartoons, playing some of the older games, and browsing some videos and articles on the internet will help you get up to speed.
The pokémon world is a vastly huge space, so don’t feel rushed to find out everything about it all at once (let alone decide on a pokemon name for your cat quickly).
Consider Other Pokémon Inspired Names
While researching for the best pokémon names for your cat, you may feel overwhelmed.
There are so many cute potential nicknames for your new pet based on pokémon and the pokémon world (besides Pikachu) that it could make your mind pop.
If you do become disoriented with the information resources available regarding the pokémon franchise, consider switching to a name simply inspired or semi-related to pokémon.
Develop a List of Your Favorite Pokémon Names
Once you’ve done your research, and you have decided whether to go with a traditional pokémon name for your cat, or something merely inspired by pokémon, it’s time for you to develop a list of all the best potential names (or find one like ours that is already developed, to save time).
Pokémon Video Game Finish Moves
If you are a true pokemon fan, you’ve most likely played several of the popular video games or apps based on the Pokémon franchise. In this case, you have additional resources to help you select the best and most suitable name for your new kitten. Video games include names from your favorite pokemon fighting moves, “finishers”, and even some additional character names.
Names Inspired by a Real Animal
In some cases, a real animal species may stand out to you while you are looking for the best name for your cat. Regardless if you’ve been searching for a pokemon name or not, it is ok to consider going with this animal-inspired name (especially if it looks like one of your favorite pokemon).
Physical Appearance (Does it Remind You of a Pokémon?)
The physical appearance of your new kitten is one of the most potentially determining factors for its name.
If your new kitty is cool enough to have a physical appearance that reminds you of an actual pokemon, you’re in luck.
In this case, the best pokemon-inspired name for your cat basically chooses itself for you.
More Considerations for Choosing Pokémon Names for Cats
Now that we’ve considered nearly everything that could possibly help you in your quest to choose the best pokémon inspired name for your cat, it’s time to have a look at the final pieces of the puzzle.
Consider the following before picking and sticking with your cat’s new name:
Let’s face it, our pet’s level of cuteness often has more to do with the names we choose for them than anything else. In the case of searching for a great pokemon name for your new furry friend, the cuteness factor helps you circle some names and scratch out others with ease.
The attitude factor is another aspect of your feline friend that you can not overlook while attempting to pick the very best name for them.
If they are timid, an outgoing pokemon like Charizard may not be the right sort of choice to make. Likewise, if they are adorable and outgoing, Pikachu could be the perfect pick.
Everyone, and everything, has a backstory factor that is often applied when a name is chosen, including our pets. Are you the proud cat owner of this new kitten’s parents? Or was the kitty a gift, or purchase?
Did it just show up on your front porch, meowing and purring? However your new cat found its way into your home, and life, should not be forgotten or downplayed while choosing the very best name for this new pet of yours.
Finding Inspiration for Pokémon Names for Cats
Once you are aware of and are considering all of the most significant factors about your new fur buddy that can help you pick some of the very best pokemon names, it’s about time to move on to seeking out additional inspiration.
A few of the main places we suggest looking to for inspiration include:
- Pokémon cards
- Pokémon anime, cartoons, and films
- Comic books about pokémon
- Video games with pokémon characters
- From pokemon inspired inside jokes with friends
At the end of the day, choosing the best name for your kitty is up to you and your imagination.
