No.

How the heck is "rock polish" a euphemism? I've never heard anyone say "Yah man, I'm gonna go home and get my rock polished". Only the fact that its TM69 makes people look to make it sound sexual.

Guess I can kinda see this. After all, when talking about an Onix and a Cloyster, polishing one's rock is appropriate. But once you take the Pokemon names away (or if Onix wasn't a Pokemon composed of stones), polishing one's rock makes no sense anymore.

Coincidence. Nothing more. Once the sixth generation hits the 3DS's successor, it'll finally be confirmed that entry 666 in the National PokÚdex will probably be common earlygame stuff (i.e. a starting bird line such as Pidgey's or Taillow's, a starting rodent line such as Sentret's or Patrat's, a starting bug line such as Caterpie's or Ledyba's, a starting canine line like those in the third and fifth generations--Poochyena and Lillipup respectively), and nowhere near a connotation to the devil...

If it makes you feel better, the original Japanese name of the attack is "Rock Cut". You'll also notice the animation is a bunch of slashing marks.
