Question 332: To pique and to poke your curiosity

This word is a portmanteau of a contraction of two common words, it and its components are identical in the singular as well as plural. The creator based this on his love for insect collecting and collating, with an identical aim in the game versions of it as well. It also became amongst the greatest phenomenons or waves the world has ever witnessed.

Every one of you have owned this once in your life.

Siddarth Pai said...

the components of the game pokemon, not the word

ie

the pokemon]

plural of pikachu is pikachu

hence

it makes perfect sense

its just a bit ambiguous

or else this was way too easy a question

the bug collection would have given it all away
