Gnoggin, hosted by its creator Lockstin, is a show delving into the mysteries of Pokemon! (and other games sometimes too). Explaining everything there is to explain! Why is each Pokemon given the type it has? What are their origins? What is the lore of the Pokemon world and the design inspirations? And what does it all have to do with alchemy? Let's Go find out!



  • Lockstin:About turtonator. «It never says it has Dragon powers, BECAUSE IT DOESN’T! Me: yeah, it does. It learns Dragon pulse, nuff said

  • Mega amphoros should not be a dragon it should be a fairy electric mega sceptile and noivern and turtinator make more sense cause mega sceptile looks like a small winged lizard noivern has wivern in the name and it's more wivern than bat and turtinator has the same inspiration by the turtle oni that Wartortle was inspired by

  • Their is a reason for altaria being a dragon type. It's just not a good one. It's because birds are related to dinosaurs and dinosaurs are kind of similar to dragons. But I still don't think altaria should be a dragon type.

  • Turtnator (pardon if I spelled it wrong) is very similar to the idea of a turtle dragon (or a dragon turtle, both are used). The dragon turtle is a Chinese mythological creature that has even made appearances in other fantasy based worlds and games (like dungeons and dragons and age of empires) and in those instances still utilizes fire or steam breaths. Just thought this might be a bit of its reason for its typing.

  • Concerning the comment about Naga and snakes being Dragon-ish, some myths actually have Dragons born when a snake is gifted wings. Slavic mythology in particular has cases of this, not sure about others. Similar to how lizards or carps turn into dragons, so can snakes. :)

  • You should read the book instead of watching the movie to "The Neverending Story". It sure is not quite as fast - paced nor as action - packed as some more modern novels - but it is a staple of German children's lit (Michael Ende definitely has some more to offer like Momo or the Wishing Punch) and in it's own way it's a pretty sweet coming of age story with a nice moral to the story (do not mis-use the power that was given to you in good faith, do not get too full of yourself or act out, just be yourself) and in that probably is more like a modern-day fairytale with a bit of extra length to it. Plus, I'd definitely take Fuchur over Drampa anytime, fight me, if you will 😉 Also check out authors like Cornelia Funke, Markus Heitz, Kai Meyer or Wolfgang Hohlbein if you indeed liked the Neverending story and like to give some other great German Fantasy/ kid lit authors a try

  • I wouldn't call the mad consumed king Oceiros slimy, he's more smooth with a scale beard than anything. Fun fact about him Lockstin: originally they did have a baby crystalised in his hands in that fight, but patched it out or forgot to add it back. The original dialogue is scripted in the game but the audio of it is hard to find, no one has yet. Just thought I'd say this since you mentioned him during your video and since you like Dark Souls as well. Also quick tip for his fight; think of it like Sif in the second phase. Stay towards his lower limbs. That said! Thank you for this series, it really is fascinating to me. Gets me thinking honestly. I also see what you mean about Dragonite and Garydos possibly being switched but then again the legend that inspired magikarp says otherwise... And yes, Mega Ampharos does get away with it nicely. That Welsh example works perfectly honestly when you think of it...protector of sheep in lore to help the Shepards perhaps?
