Nickname Origin Edit


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."
