Nickname Origin[edit | edit source]

Artist's rendition of a supernova.

Chugga wanted a Cleffa; a usually cute and harmless Pokemon, to be caught in a Dusk Ball so that when it was sent out into battle, it would have a dark ring surrounding it. He wanted to give it a bad-ass name. So, after checking through the suggested comments, he found one suggestion left by the YouTube user called, "BearsOfIntelligence", said this:

"So... What was the aforementioned bad-ass nickname... Supernova."

Other Projects[edit | edit source]

Emile mentioned Supernova during The Runaway Guys Colosseum of 2019 when he battled Marilland in a Metronome-only match. After losing his Togetic and Clefairy, Emile sent out his final Pokémon, a Clefable, who came across with much better luck. The players mused that it was Supernova trying to make up for her poor luck in the Platinum LP when the Clefable provided enough good luck for Emile that he and Marilland declared the match a draw.
