From Wikimon

Piccolo is still probably the intended name, but I thought I should bring this up:

Pickle: An affectionate term for a loved one

  • 1867, Polly Stubbs, Nursery times; or, Stories about the little ones, by an old nurse, page 143: by degrees my little pickle (who, as I told you at the beginning of the story, was the most troublesome child I ever came across) turned into a very well-behaved young gentleman.
  • 1885, Eleanor A. Bulley, Great Britain for little Britons‎, page 116: ... If you could get my little pickle to learn his multiplication table before you leave us, you shall have that musical box to take home with you.
  • 1965, Eric Malpass, Morning's at seven‎, page 43: 'And now,' she said, 'what about that kiss my little pickle was going to give his old Auntie?'

So there is just the eensiest bit of justification for the name Picklemon.KrytenKoro06 03:38, 22 August 2009 (UTC)

Seems highly unlikely, especially since the katakana is still wrong. --TMS (talk) 20:37, 1 June 2020 (EST)
It might be a pun though since the romanizations of pikkoro and pikkuru are similar apart from the vowel used for "pikk_r_". Chimera-gui (talk) 20:21, 1 June 2020 (CDT)
