Simple. Ducklett. The Japanese word for Duck is Ahiru (the latter part of the name) and Ko- denotes small (used a lot as an endearing term in animes)

I was going to guess sunflora, but then I cheated and found out that it's corsola. Weird.

Haha yes! Corsola's Japanese name is positively odd.

Mahoippu. Hoippu sounds like the Japanese loan word for whipped, like cream. So my first guesses are definitely either Slurpuff, Swirlix, or Alcremie. The first two evolve and are based off of it, while Alcremie literally is whipped cream.

The answer: Mahoippu is Alcremie. Bingo!

Bah, now I have to find those that can't be as intuitively figured out.

Rokon is Vulpix. I would tell you how, but I know its name from watching SM anime in subbed.

Who's That Pokémon: Hōhō
