Here's one interesting: presumably each Eeveelution gets their own collective name but what about the collective noun for an assortment of heterogeneous Eeveelutions? Ditto for for example Ralts: is the collective noun for a mixed group of Gardevoir and Gallade the same as the collective noun for Gardevoir as the collective noun for Gallade?
A troop of Eeveelutions and a family of Gallade and Gardevoir?

A court of Sceptile and his pre-evolutions. he is the king of the jungle.

Also a group of tyrogue and his family could be a dojo.

Both of my suggestions are kinda silly:

A muckle of Shuckle. Not a real word, but I do like the rhyme.

A court of Krabby? I'm not sure about this one, but it's all I could come up with. I'm thinking a medieval court, with the king (crab) and his advisors. A stretch, but at least it has some alliteration.

I looked it up, the collective noun for crabs IRL is cast. Not sure I like it, but it works.

I like court better than the real one, with you know kingler and all

Can I bump this thread if it hasn't been posted in for two months? My wife proposes "a tumble of Spheal".
