    @Myrmidont
    “ok” and “ox” are two totally different sounds. Thus Dustox would have sounded better.
    Though it’s a sorry excuse for a Pokemon. Arbok is smexier.
    The wolf jokes are funny, but I think it’s getting run into the ground. =-_-=

    I’m going to break some brains here …but Arbok and StarFox DO rhyme. On one level it’s called Assonance..a rhyme where the vowel sounds match…
    In other words the ‘ok’ in Arbok and the ‘ox’ in StarFox don’t have to match perfectly…though the vowel sounds do.
    In the most basic sense, rhymes are based on the phonetic similarities of words.

    As the Dictionary puts it: Assonance is a rhyme in which the same vowel sounds are used with different consonants in the stressed syllables of the rhyming words, as in ‘penitent’ and ‘reticence’.

    So yes. They rhyme :)

    I also think this is one of the better StarWolf jokes.
    4/5
