Okay people were talking about terrible names, but "Skrelp"? Seriously?

Talonflame might not bow to our mortal tongues without some peril, but unlike Skrelp it doesn't actually grapple with us like the dragon it wishes it was.

Seriously everytime I say Skrelp I feel like a vein in my brain explodes, my eye twitches shut a few millimeters that won't ever open back up, and a little fairy dances across the screen and uses waterpulse on a Ludicolo.
I can't even tell if the fairy is a fairy-type pokemon because of the squinting I'm now being forced into.

Halp. Skrelp. D:

That's actually a word with a letter switched.

Well, yeah, I know. I looked around before making the topic. But the first time I saw it I read Skrerlp, which was crazy, and even finding the actual name [with just one less letter], it still doesn't seem to want to cooperate with my tongue.

Even just a C instead of a K would be beneficial, but it still just feels so wrong to have letters put together like that.

Sorry about your feeble tongue, bro. Rolls off of mine just fine.

I also like to think it's partially derived from Scalp.
Partially due to its head, but also because of scalping people.

I'm pretty sure it's scrap + kelp, seeing as how it disguises itself as a scrap of kelp.

Anyway, say it like the "sk" in skunk, then "relp." It's really, really not that difficult...
