Does it refer to They Might Be Giants' album, The Else?

I'm guessing that OK Computer part is because treecko backwards starts with "OK." The Else part, no clue. (Probably would help if I knew anything about the pokemon in question)

That's incorrect, and the word "Treecko" in the post where I first brought up Okelse was a link to an article describing Treecko as a species. The relevant detail is right in the info box.

Per bulbpedia:

Treecko are able to scale walls with the aid of tiny spikes located in their hands and feet.


Both OK Computer and The Else have songs named "Climbing the Walls."

They're based on wood geckos, and as such can climb walls.

Although to be correct, the song on OK Computer is "Climbing UP the Walls".

Also to be correct, now that I think of it, bumblebees don't live in hives. They live in holes in the ground.
