I think Snivy is okay. I didn't like it at first, but it kinda grew on me.

Oshawott is pretty decent. To me it sounds like "wash an otter"

I was outraged when I saw Tepig's name. Its lack of originality makes me cry inside. I still refer to it as "Pokabu" because I refuse to call it "Tepig"

I actually like Unova a lot. It's easier for me to pronounce than "Isshu". I guess Unova could come from the combination of "uno" (which is Spanish for one, btw) and "nova" (Latin for "new"). Since Black and White is basically a new beginning for the Pokemon series (or so I've heard), Unova would be considered as the "first new region".

As for Zorua and Zoroark, I was pretty much expecting them to keep their Japanese names. The same goes for Reshiram and Zekrom.

About the monkes, whatever. Sear (to burn), sage (a plant), and pour (self-explanatory). But why Pan? It confuzzles me. :frustrated:

Mmmm, what of those names for the monkey pokemon...


All = I like this actually, I don't understand why they used "Pan" at the beginning as oppose to "ppu" at the end but it still works for me so...

Yanappu - Pansage = I kinda get why they used sage & it works so...
Baoppu - Pansear = I don't get why they used sear but it kinda works so...
Hiyappu - Panpour = I get why they used pour & it works so...

Pan comes from chimPANzee

I like all of them, but I wish they had done Pansoak instead of Panpour, since the other two are Pan+(fourletter word starting with S)

Thank you for that, EvilPenguin...I completely forgot that their was a primal species with PAN in it's name...now I like them even more & I agree, Pansoak would have sounded alot better & fitted with the other 2 better more importantly, *sign* silly people who come up with the english pokemon names couldn't think of such a thing, sad really...

New names!

Hihidaruma = Darmanitan
Chillarmy = Minccino
Gigaiath = Gigalith
Meguroco = Sandile
Shimama = Blitzle
Gear = Klink
Mamepato = Pidove
Munna stays the same
Hiun City becomes Castelia City
Professor Araragi becomes Professor Juniper

Pidove made me facepalm. We already have an early game bird with Pid-.

These names I dont mind for the most part.

Pidove... I now what what its based off of but I still dont get it...
Kink is more of a nickname than a species name in my mind at least.

The professor stays a tree... that much I'm happy about. At this point, the names don't draw a reaction from me. I'll get used to them anyway. >.<

More enigmatic names I see, ok, let's see...

Darmanitan = ...I don't even know how to respond or feel about this one, do I like it, do I hate it, is it in between, I will never know...

Minccino = Not too bad but could have been better, seriously could have been better, I can live with this one...

Gigalith = I'm assuming this is that blue & red Rock Type pokemon which to that I say, great name, they wasn't obsessed with trying to keep Gaia in it's name which is a good thing...

Sandile = this is a stupid, stupid name, I'm not even going to criticize it, it's so bad...

Blitzle = I don't get this one 1 bit but I will say that as a name in general it isn't bad, whatever, I can live with this I guess...

Klink = Why, why why did they do this one, it is a bit outrageous to have as a regular name, kind of a name given to something by someone being weird(or cute, however you want to look at it) I say...

Pidove = I just don't see why it is necessary to yet again have "pid" in a bird pokemon's name, that name has 0 originality in it what so ever... *Double Facepalm*

Munna stays the same = Good, don't want this pokemon getting a crappy name as well from people who aren't really that good at naming things...

Castelia City = I do not even care about city names in games but I will say this, it is not that bad but what was so hard about leaving it Hiun City?...

Professor Juniper = I don't know what a Juniper is & I liked Araragi way better but I can live with & get used to Juniper so sour grapes there...

Can't wait until March 6th, even with all these terrible names, I am no less exited about the game then I was before any of them was revealed...

I actually kinda like sandile. Sounds a whole lot better than klink, and it better not evolve into klack who evolves into klunck....

Yanappu - Pansage
Baoppu - Pansear
Hiyappu - Panpour

At first, this is what I read:

Yanappu - Pancake
Baoppu - Pansyrup
Hiyappu - Panflour

BUT I LOVE THEIR NAMES THOUGH :D

The newest names are okay, I guess. But Sandile? Pidove? Klink? What kind of names are these? I'll learn to deal with them eventually, but seriously?
I'd like to see what NoA names their children...

Klink is an OK name, although there could have been something better. At least it wasn't "gear."
Pidove is annoying to say, but it fits the Pok

I'm actually fine with every English name they have given out so far, excluding Tepig, my favorite Gen V poke. Why don't I like the name? For me, it is hard to pronounce. Tay - Pig or Tee - Pig? I'm assuming it's Tay - Pig because of the word 'tepid,' although saying Tepig like that is almost difficult for me.


http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/tepid

Anywho,

Sandile, to me, is ok. Not very creative, but I like it. Pidove is not as creative, but I got used to it already. Klink, not very creative at all, but got used to it.

NEW NAMES!!!

Wargle is now Braviary, which I can live with. I liked Wargle so much better, though.
Minizumi is now Patrat, which is good but seems weird. Patrat - Pat Rat - Pat the rat.
Gochiruzeru is now Gothitelle. I'm okay with it.
Rankurusu is now Reuniclus, which has, like, ten different pronounciations. It's fine, though.
Desukan is now Cofagrigus. It's fine.
Mogurew is now Drilbur. I'll get used to it eventually.
Kibago is now Axew. I expected better. Kidrago would've been awesome, but there's always nicknaming.
Koromori is now Woobat, which is pretty good. If it sounds too simple, I have never heard one complaint against the name Muk. Remember that...
Musharna is now Musharna. Raise your hand if you'll have trouble adjusting to this one.

There are some abilities, moves, and characters, but I don't care about those. So that's it, I guess.

edit: WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOW...!
How did I not see it until just now? Woobat sounds exactly like Zubat, but with a W instead of a Z! They couldn't have come up with a name that doesn't rhyme with the Pokemon it's basically replacing?
WORST. NAME. EVER.
Did they think no one would notice? Just because the OO sound in both of them are spelled differently doesn't automatically make it a new name. How did Nintendo of America think they could get away with this ripoff. No wonder I liked the name so much! Zubat has always been one of my favorite names. This Pokemon will be nicknamed Bothom by me because it's actually a good bat name.
If its evolution is named Wolbat, I'll cry.

In case anyone is interested to know the abilities, moves, etc names:

Moves:
You First/Go Ahead = After You
Double Chop = Dual Chop
Freefall = Sky Drop
Heart Stamp = Heart Stamp

Abilities:
Dust Proof = Overcoat

Sand Strength = Sand Force
Mummy = Mummy
Game Sync = Game Sync

Characters:
Makomo = Fennel
Cheren = Cheren
Bel = Bianca

Misc.
Dream Smoke = Dream Mist
C-Gear = C-Gear

Nah, I don't care much for Move or Ability names.

Still getting used to Drilbur, Axew, and Woobat. I shall never get used to Snivy. I HATE YOU, SNIVY!!!
Anyway, I saw this list of all the Gen. V English names on two different sites. It goes from Victini to Kyurem. I'm hoping it's not real, as some of the names really suck.
