Dogars is the Japanese word for Koffing. The song was originally “D-O-G-A-R-S, DOGARS,” but was changed to something that 1. fit musically and 2. fit the situation. Most children in North America wouldn’t appreciate hearing Dogars, although I was hoping that one of the NPC’s might explain that “Roxie’s band occasionally uses words from other languages in her songs. The one they’re performing now is the Japanese word for one of her favorite Pokémon” or something.

It also sounds like “DOH gas” or “DOG ass.” Perhaps the localization team wanted to avoid gas and one of the places from which it comes.
