Something smells fishy
Remoraid is a fish.
He, or she, or it, is also a Pokémon.
It so happens, when you’re on your merry way “catching them all”, if you put together a Remoraid and a Mantyke – something that passes as a manta ray in the Pokéworld – the latter will grow into a bigger manta ray, with a little Remoraid glued to its underside like a cleaner fish.
Now, I’m not saying Pokémon as a whole is dumb, or that the monsters look dumb, or have dumb names, or anything dumb like that.
But if I see stuff like …
REMORAID may be a combination of remora and raid (a rapid attack). Alternatively, it could be a combination of remora and aid, denoting the health benefits of some fish which clean others. From Bulbapedia
… I lose it.
‘Remoraid‘ is clearly based, without a sliver of doubt, on a slimy, scaly, clingy hemorrhoid.
