    Derivative origin fits best.
    A man in possession of a wooden spoon must be in want of a pot to stir.

    How would you say, "Pocket Monster is the elaboration of Pokemon."

    Pocket Monster is the source phrase for Pokemon.
    “Fools” said I, “You do not know
    Silence like a cancer grows
    Hear my words that I might teach you
    Take my arms that I might reach you”
    But my words like silent raindrops fell
    And echoed in the wells of silence : Simon & Garfunkel


    Those who enjoy stirring the chamber-pot should be required to lick the spoon.

    Our job as writers is to make readers dream, to infiltrate their minds with our words and create a new reality; a reality not theirs, and not ours, but a new, unique combination of both.

    No really.
    It's elaboration. The opposite of an acronym is an elaboration.

    What the hell! --"Pokemon is short for Pocket Monster."
