657 Gekogashira (Frogadier)



Pokemon name meaning:

ゲコゲコ gekogeko – alternative frog sound

小頭 kogashira – section head


Gekogeko is less familiar than the well-known kerokero as a frog-sound. Could there also be a side-reference to the similarly splay-fingered, huge-eyed gecko?

The kanji of 小頭 kogashira literally means “small head” – that is to say, a subordinate leader. This refers to Gekoshira’s status as a middle-evolution Pokemon. While final-evolution Pokemon names often include leader-terms like “king” and “don” middle-evolutions may be seen as intermediate chiefs.
