Exchange names

Most of yous may not know this, but telephone numbers used to begin with two letters, which were the first two letters of a word. For example, there was a Glenn Miller song called PEnnsylvania 6-5000, and Liz Taylor made a movie called BUtterfield-8. Most on here wern't even born when this numbering format was in regular use. These were telephone exchanges, and had exchange names -- PEnnsylvania, SYcamore, KLondike, etc.

Example - User1 posts the following Pokémon related name:


Then, another user will respond with the numbers dialed, which will always be the first two letters of the name.
In response to the above, the numbers to be dialed would be '74'

Or you can do it the other way around-post a two-digit number that does not have a 0 or 1 anywhere, and another can reply to that by giving a Pokémon related name to match the numbers dialed. Example- User5 posts the digits '27', then another (Trainer3) would reply with something like 'Brock' or 'Arbok'

If you know any real-life exchange names, you may post it here if you want alongside the Pokemon related name-see signoff at end of this post)

This game does not have to be played in chain sequence. One can drop in a new number or name, another can do the same thing without answering the previous post. You may want to quote the post that you’re answering.

BTW, a construction company in Detroit used Tyler 8-7100 (or in Pokémon sense, Typhlosion 8-7100) I'll leave yous to figure out the numbers dialed.
