Reuniclus will probably be goofy and float, whereas Gothitelle should be calm and Gardevoir-like. Oh God, Tympole will just flop around, and Seismitoad will just look ugly and awkward.

EDIT: LMAO! I just heard Seismitoad's cry. It's hilarious (you can see it here (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tcea-FqVhAM), just go to towards the end of the video)

I love the cries this Generation, they actually tried pretty hard with them, and it paid off. Chandelure's is always awesome to hear (unless of course it's Shikimi when she sends it into your Serperior).

Dr. Leggs
2nd February 2011, 11:57 PM
Gothitelle has white feet, I saw it somewhere on either a card or maybe its Dream World artwork (so its bottom isn't just a base). I assume it'll move around like Gardevoir as SpeedSuicune said, possibly levitating? Reuniclus will likely be floating around as well.

I'm digging the cries, too. I'll post on my favourites and least favourites later, but I like practically all of them. Very well done.

Snap-crackle-pop, I think I just figured out Eelektross (forgive me if this has been mentioned). Shibirudon comes from shibire, meaning numbness, and don, as in the Spanish term Don meaning lord/boss. The localization team seems to be trying really hard to preserve the meanings of the Japanese names especially in this generation, so I'm thinking it's simply eel + electric (elektrik) + boss. Makes much more sense now.

I doubt it's random. As I said earlier, they seem to be trying very hard to preserve the Japanese meanings this time around. Boss makes perfect sense.

The one cry I really can't get behind is Petilil... It just doesn't seem fitting at all. Which bugs me. But oh well. Elgyem and Beheeyem are great, as is the Litwick line. Durant is cool, Volcarona is great. Cryogonal is interesting, too.

Disgruntled Goat
3rd February 2011, 4:19 AM
I'm gonna go out on a limb and suggest Eelektross = eel + electric + albatross because of its levitate ability.

Does anyone else think that Cryogonal actually looks like it's crying? I thought that before the English name came out... now I can't see 'cryogenic' at all, just A CRYING HEXAGON!

Dr. Leggs
3rd February 2011, 4:22 AM
Albatrosses don't levitate. Levitation and flight are different. I think you'd be hard pressed to support that a lamprey was named after a completely unrelated bird.

Petal + lil (as in little) alternately lily (or lili backwards). It's Japanese name literally means tulip + root and is a play on the word for lily bulb.

I'm still thinking ferroseed is based on a chigger.

Chiggers (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chigger) are little mites that latch on to animals and suck blood, like ticks. Ferroseed does none of that, save perhaps for the latching on.

What Pineco is to the pine cone, Ferroseed is to burrs (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bur) and similar plants that spread their seed pods by getting caught on the fur of passing animals and harmlessly falling off on far-off ground.

Has anyone every noticed how a lot of these new pokes seem to be replacements of old ones. Of course these are new starters, birds and rodents, but many other animal niches are replaced...

Meowth-Purloin, Geodude-Roggenrola, Zubat-woobat, diglett- drilbur, chansey- audino, machop- timburr, poliwag- tympole, tentacool- frillish, voltorb- foongus,

Idk if this has already been discussed before, but still isn't it odd?

BCVM22
3rd February 2011, 3:56 PM

Ad nausem, yes. The reasoning is obvious: populating Unova completely with new Pokémon further creates the intended disconnect between the new region and the rest of the Pokémon world, and in doing that, you're going to need new Pokémon to fill the niches - cave dwellers, woodland creatures, plants, etc. - formerly filled by the likes of Zubat, Geodude and other such Pokémon.

BCVM22
3rd February 2011, 7:45 PM
It is certainly an intentional disconnect from the area of the "world" where the first four regions were located, but it's not much more than that.

As much as the pre-Elite Four portion of the game is completely bereft of old Pokémon, they do start showing up afterwards, and appearances by Cynthia and Looker make it pretty clear that it's still all the same world, just another part of it.

Dr. Leggs
3rd February 2011, 7:45 PM

Well, it's mimicking the natural world; in sufficiently isolated environments you often find two different species occupying the same niche, who may look very similar.

Also, for the ones you mentioned, while they bear strong physical resemblance to other Pokemon or are based on the same broad species as other Pokemon, their types and distribution throughout Unova are often very different.

I wonder if those Pokémon will get evolutions/pre-evolutions in the next generation, like their "counterparts". Example: the Zubat line got Crobat a generation after the line was introduced, so there may be a evolution of Swoobat in Gen VI.

That's what I immediately thought when I read the name! I love that it kind of references Flitwick. It makes the Litwick line magical!

Litwick sounds similar to "Flitwick". Obviously, that candle Pokemon doesn't look like that character from the Harry Potter series, but the names read and sound similar, that's all.

You never know with Nintendo. I see no reason to dismiss the idea altogether.

Anyway, today's Thursday. And on Thursdays lately, IGN's been revealing more new Pokemon, right? So what about today? Obviously, we already know all the Pokémon names. But they've also revealed names of attacks and abilities along with the Pokemon, and that's kind of what I'm hoping to see.

I mean, aside from the name, there's zero similarity between the two entities which makes it seem pretty unlikely. That's all I'm saying.

lol!

I realized it when I first saw the name. I already loved Litwick (it looks like a Boo [favorite Mario character tied w/ Dry Bones] with its head on fire [darn Luigi]). Flitwick made me love it more.

Disgruntled Goat
4th February 2011, 2:00 AM
I like how that evo line has a menacing undercurrent in the references. By the way, Litwick is primarily 'lit' as in on fire, and 'wick' as in a candle. There are a bunch of references you could pull out of Lampent: lament, repent, rampant, etc etc.

Dr. Leggs
4th February 2011, 2:12 AM
I don't think you could really get 'rampant' from that, it has no relevance to Lampent. I see lamp, lament, repent and lambent. But yeah, the names of the Litwick line are some of my favourites.

Disgruntled Goat
4th February 2011, 3:01 AM
I don't think you could really get 'rampant' from that, it has no relevance to Lampent.
Um, 'rampant' shares 5 out of 7 letters with 'lampent'. That's more than repent does.
Also, if you stress the first syllable rather than the second, they sound pretty similar.

Like all the names, maybe it's not the main reference but it's definitely in there as a side-effect.

Dr. Leggs
4th February 2011, 3:13 AM
I said nothing about the letters. You yourself suggested repent.

I mean that 'rampant' doesn't describe Lampent very well, and has little relevance to it as a Pokemon. How is Lampent rampant?

LexSuicune
4th February 2011, 6:29 AM
Lamp+Lament lol. As Leggs says, it makes no sense for it to be rampant.

Like all the names, maybe it's not the main reference but it's definitely in there as a side-effect.

Um, by using your 'x shares blah blah blah our of y letters with 'name'', then we can assume Smoochum is a scrambling up of 'mushroom', as mushroom shares 7 out of 8 letters with Smoochum, despite Smoochum not being close to a mushroom.
We can also say that Mothim is partly based on the word 'thimble', despite bearing no resemblance.
Whilst rampant and Lampent aren't as extreme as these cases, the principle is still the same; sharing x amount of letters can have very little to do with the roots of the name: explain to me, how is Lampent rampant?

Samurott is a sea lion. Sea otter to sea lion is not a huge stretch at all, but Ken Sugimori did say the designer of the Oshawott line had difficulty figuring out Samurott's design. It's not a dog. It can be viewed as a bit of a stretch but drastic evolutionary changes do happen in Pokemon.

@Flame Dragon- Seriously? Are you REALLY bringing back this argument? Samurott is based off a Sea Lion (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sea_lion), a reasonably close relative to the Otter. It does fit right, it shoes natural progression, with the slowly darkening colour of skin and getting more shells.

Do you know the girl Caithlin in the battle castle in Pt/HG/SS? Well, she's a member of the Elite 4 in the Unova region now and she looks much older, so I assume the events of B/W happens around 5~7 years later after the events of D/P/Pt/HG/SS

Yes, Gen V is after Gen II-IV.

I know what you're trying to say, Poke_Mania, but it isn't a reboot. A fresh start and a reboot aren't the same. Whether Gen VI onwards will encompass its own individual 'set' like Gen I-IV did is yet to be seen.


i don't think we ever had a pokemon that evolves twice via happiness have we? If swoobat were to evolve, i think it would be via some new stone...

Seeing as Gen IV introduced Porygon-Z, thus the first evolutionary line to evolve by trading with items twice, the idea of evolving with happiness twice wouldn't be impossible in itself.

However, happiness doesn't reset with evolution. Thus once it evolved, it would simply evolve again after leveling up. I don't think that'll happen.

Only problem with unfriendly evolutions is that battling itself gives you happiness points. So unless they changed that aspect, I dunno if evolving based on not being friendly would work so well. Having him learn a move that makes him evolve or trading with a new item is more likely I think.

Or how bout a stone like a dawn stone. I mean budew to roselia is a happy one and then bam dawn stone to roserade. I personally dislike swoobat. Ever since I saw that tail ive been put off.
If would have to be a new stone released in Gen. 6. They try to make new evolutions impossible to obtain in older generations. But again this is a discussion we should be having on another day.

I'm really loving all evolved bug types in this gen (except Durant... it makes Escavalier less unique in that region and I hate ants in general). I have noticed there are may of them compared to other types of Unova pokemon

Indeed. Excluding all forms (hopefully) here's something I've been working on for a while.

Numbers move from Gen 1-5, bold is most in a gen, italics is least.

Bug: 12, 10, 14, 9, 18
Dark: 0, 6, 10, 7, 16
Dragon: 3, 1, 9, 6, 10
Electric: 9, 8, 4, 7, 11
Fighting: 8, 3, 7, 7, 15
Fire: 12, 10, 6, 5, 14
Flying: 19, 19, 12, 14, 18
Ghost: 3, 1, 6, 8, 9
Grass: 14, 10, 17, 14, 20
Ground: 14, 10, 13, 11, 11
Ice: 5, 5, 6, 6, 7
Normal: 24, 20, 18, 18, 17
Poison: 33, 4, 5, 8, 7
Psychic: 14, 9, 20, 9, 15
Rock: 11, 7, 12, 7, 10
Steel: 0(2), 4, 9, 11, 12
Water: 32, 18, 28, 15, 17

All I can say is poor poison.

So Gen 1 has the most Posion, Ground, Normal, and Water-Types. Gen 1+2 have equally the most Flying-Types.
Gen 3 has the most Rock and Psychic-Types.
Gen 5 has the most Bug, Dark, Dragon, Electric, Fighting, Ice, Fire, Steel, Grass, and Ghost-Types.

And just for fun 'Gen 6' speculation :P

Assuming ~100 Pokemon being released next gen:
Bug: 11-12
Dark:8-9
Dragon: 6-8
Electric: 7-8
Fighting: 6-7
Fire: 6-8
Flying: 15-18
Ghost: 7-9
Grass: 13-14
Ground: 10-11
Ice: 7
Normal: 18-20
Poison: 6-8
Psychic: 9
Rock: 7
Steel: 10-12
Water: 15-17

I wouldn't say it's entirely impossible, considering both Roserade and Porygon-Z are capable of being fully evolved at Level 1. That doesn't have much relevance to it but it does show that sometimes levelling isn't necessary at all when evolving.

Breeding Budew is optional. You can breed a Roselia without the Rose Incense and then evolve it with the Shiny Stone.

Infernape makes sense because he's about the same size as real world baboons. Excadrill (while quite large for a mole) is made to look almost the same size as Haxorus which is 5'11"!

The list came out on Pokejungle a day or two before IGN.com revealed some of the names. After those names and all others matched the list Joe eventually confirmed them as legit. Nintendo won't post the names till the games are out. We aren't supposed to even know what the new pokemon look like never mind their names. Although I'm sure they know that we know all about them by now.

I like it when Pokémon are small. It makes them look even tougher, if you ask me, because it's a tiny little thing that can stand up to and defeat stuff much larger than itself. It's like Muggsy Bogues--you've got to admire how he was the best defensive player in the NBA for some time, yet he's 5' 1" (1.55 meters). There have been even smaller Pokémon who are fully evolved or were once fully-evolved though.

Equal in height to Excadrill (2' 04", 0.7m):
Dugtrio
Misdreavus
Raticate
Stunfisk
Swellow
Whimsicott

Durant
Jirachi

I'll bet most of you thought Durant was bigger than that.

Honestly, a lot of those numbers are surprising to me. Official pokedex data or not, I'm still going to think of Roselia as considerably larger than one foot tall. Bellosom and Raticate, too (I considered them to be three feet tall, at least).

Timburrs kind of cool, and it's watchog, as in watch and hog, not watch and dog, fracture is my favourite name, and it kinda fits the lines name theme:

Axew (axe and skewer, as in a type of cutting)
Fraxure (Fracture, as in cutting a bone, so a slightly stronger cut, and axe)
Haxorus (Hack, a stronger kind of cut, axe and Saurus)

Yeah, it's Watchog not Watchdog. And I don't much care for the name, but that stems from the fact that I dislike the Pokemon. I've never liked Watchog since it's given me a hard time in the games. I remember fighting Aloe's Watchog and it took me a long time to finally defeat it. I also remember fighting wild Watchog and they were a pain in the butt since they would confuse my Pokemon, put them to sleep, and then cut their HP in half with that fang move. They aren't the worst Pokemon in the world, but I'm not a fan.

How sad some hate him, but hey to each their own and all that.

hi5 Watchog buddy. I like that they beefed up his early-game moveset. Crunch by level 16! Hypnosis at 18! Confuse Ray upon evolution!
He's got such a cool design, and I think the fact that a gym leader is using a regional rodent as their signature Pokemon is awesome.

Razor Shell was probably changed since things other than Oshawott get it and "razor shell" is more, uh, "open" than Shell Blade.
Incinerate is still Incinerate but I can't remember if we already knew that
And Darumaka only gets one k, I kind of remember some doubt on if it was one or two.

Also I had no clue that Cheren's second Pokemon varied. I thought it was always <starter>, Basculine.

Yeesh, over three hundred pages. Am I late to the party or what?

I bet this has been discussed before, but when people mention about the fifth gen Pokemon being ugly.

Well. . . I think I may know what they're talking about; it's called "Stunfisk."

I was one of many people who was skeptical about this new gen of Pokemon. I didn't like ANY of the pokemon except the three starters. But after awhile of griping and moaning I decided to try and really look into them a second time, and I was surprised to find myself picking some cute ones. (Pidove was one of them, but when I discovered that he evolved into a horriable turkey/hawk hybrid, I decided to bump his family into the ugly zone. Sorry Pidove)

But Stunfisk. . . Good god, this thing must've been dragged from the depths of "Pokemon hell," by a secret cult of people who hated Pokemon and plastered it on here as revenge for our love of the series.

I remain convinced that the Pokemon was designed to troll everyone.

Wow, I'm actually really liking most of these, which is good because play-throughs are more enjoyable when the names are good.

Out of all the Gym Leaders and Elite Four members' names in Hoenn and Sinnoh I only liked Roxanne, Winona, Phoebe, Aaron and Bertha. It's nice to have a good set of names for a change.

My god, how can everybody just keep on hating poor little Stunfisk? It's so incredibly cute and round and flat and adorable. It even has good enough stats, typing and movepool for a standalone. If it only had Water Absorb, it'd be perfect.

But seriously, it's probably the most awesome standalone Pokémon since Dunsparce and definately my favourite from Unova. Right after Serperior that is.

how much are u willing to spend? i come from the UK, and its Ł160, which is kinda worth it, last year i got my dsi with HG, and it was Ł150. however considering the black dsi is worth Ł100 on its own it is quite a bit more. so with the black version its Ł130

It was a rhetorical question.

I don't associate such a masculine name with a girl, not like it matters though.

Ł130+ is still a lot to spend on a second DS, particularly when it will essentially be "obsolete" in a month's time. Maybe they will do special a 3DS too?


Also, Nitro Charge is now Flame Charge (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7p0_VnprbGA)

I remain convinced that the Pokemon was designed to troll everyone.

Look at it! LOOK AT IT!
It's got the "troll" look, its animation is rapidly jumping up and down, the cry is a fart-esque noise, the stats are far better than one would think, it's not water type

That is the weirdest thing abut it, isn't it? It looks like it's body was designed for the water but it's a random dual ground/electric Pokemon. Can't imagine how it'd fair on land.

Gues I'll just have to wait for the game or the show to explain. :P

My god, how can everybody just keep on hating poor little Stunfisk? It's so incredibly cute and round and flat and adorable. It even has good enough stats, typing and movepool for a standalone. If it only had Water Absorb, it'd be perfect.

But seriously, it's probably the most awesome standalone Pokémon since Dunsparce and definately my favourite from Unova. Right after Serperior that is.

Stunfisk's just way too cute to be hated <3

Infidel!

Dunsparce may not be my favorite, but at least it was 'somewhat' cute.

Stunfisk looks like a Pokemon that was beaten with a hammer, run over with a car, left out in the sun for too long and splashed with toxic waste which allowed it to grow those flippers.

. . .Oh my god. . .That would explain why it's got a fish like body! It's a mutant Pokemon! Zomg!

It's based on a flounder. But Water/Ground and Water/Electric have already been done, so they made Stunfisk Ground/Electric.

The Tynamo line is based on aquatic creatures as well, but have no Water typing.

Like Dr. Leggs here said, Stunfisk's based on a flounder. It buries itself in sand or mud and zaps everyone who steps on it, so it's basically an electric land mine, hence the typing.

Let me correct you, "many people will have the money to buy a 3DS". It's the next generation of handhelds, of course people will buy it! It's not even that expensive, you can get it for about Ł200, which is great value when you think about what you're getting: a 3D handheld without glasses, excellent graphics, augmented reality and SpotPass and StreetPass, to name but a few.

The engineer in you should know that air is 78% nitrogen, therefore not cold. Nitrogen is only cold when it's in liquid form, same as oxygen or any other gas.


oh i didnt know it was gonna be purchased as a 2nd ds. i thought it was a first one.
I'm not sure they specified actually, I just assumed since they wanted to put the picture on a regular DSi. If it's their first DS(i) then it's a good deal to get the Pokemon one.


anyway, you say the dsi will be 'obselete', even though this is true, not many people will have the money to buy a 3DS.
Don't get me wrong, I'll still be playing my DS for a few years, as will many people. But by definition, when they bring a new version of a console out, the old one is counted as obsolete.

Part of Masuda/GF's goal this gen was to give people the feeling of 1st gen; not really knowing what type each Pokemon was on the first run through, etc. To that effect there are several Pokemon (Frillish, Tynamo, Shelmet, Stunfisk, Golett come to mind) whose types are not immediately obvious at first glance or are counter intuitive.

Stunfisk is found near Icirrus City, floating (presumably) above patches of marshland (alongside Shelmet and Palpitoad). This location is also in close proximity to Electra Rock Cave, where Tynamo and Voltik (and Klink) are found, so its electric typing could be 'influenced' by that.

Nope, I'm not rich, but I have money that I've saved for the next generation of handhelds. If you want to play the next Pokémon games (or any other new game, at that), I suggest you put money aside to buy a 3DS. It's only Ł30-Ł40 more expensive than the XL. . .

Not sure where the picture is but there was a picture wherein Shiny Raikou battling Zoroark had the name 'Raikou' as opposed to 'RAIKOU'. So it's safe to assume non-nicknamed Pokemon that are transferred over will be corrected.

'Have to look good'? It's neither impossible nor difficult to create a program that turns RAIKOU into Raikou as it's transferred over. It's practically confirmed to be the case.

Dracoste
7th February 2011, 11:17 PM
I also think the Pokémon transfered from gen 4 get their names adjusted, of course, if your pokémon has a nickname in capitals, I don't think those will change.
But for unnicknamed Pokémon it's just their pokémon species name, if you transfer a Rattata from FR to you Diamond and let it evolve, the name also changes into Raticate, doesn't it.
So when a Pokémon from gen 4 get transfered towards gen 5 they will probably also just have their Pokémon names like the other Pokémon catchable in Unova.

When Audino was first revealed I translated it as the Hearing Pokemon originally but several other translators had a go at me because it was 'obviously' supposed to be the Healing Pokemon (Hearing/Healing sound the same in Japanese because of the lack of r/l distinction). I knew I was right and I always hated that I caved into that pressure to change it.

re: Digimon Xcross wars
Some of those could probably be kind of Pokemon-ish. Like Chibikaemon or Dondokomon.
In fact, I'm surprised there haven't been more instrument Pokemon other than Chimecho and Chingling!

Tynamo was so hard for me to find that I ended up just trading someone for it. It's only in one part of electric rock cave and has a 1% chance. After about my 200th Klink and Joltik I just snapped.
Oh lord, my patience for this shall be tested. I do want an Elektross, but maybe I should reconsider...


My favourite complaint is the 'WTF Reshiram and Zekrom looked like Digimon! I liked it better when only Sugimori designed the Pokemon!!' sort.

The huge amounts of irony and fallacy in that complaint just tickle me the right way.
Seeing some of the TVTrope entries for stuff related to key tropes on these exact things make me realize that there are some really strange fans out there. I'm glad I haven't encountered any of them here...

I suppose, but compared to say the original Digimon series, very few of those bear any resemblance to Pokemon.

Also, Music/Sound Type is one of the most common fakemon types, along with Light, Alien, and Dinosaur.


Oh lord, my patience for this shall be tested. I do want an Elektross, but maybe I should reconsider...

Bear in mind that the percentage I quoted is wrong and I was just unlucky. (The real one varies between 2% and 8% depending on the level of Elctrock Cave you're on)

You clearly missed the day Zekrom/Reshiram were unveiled/the whole starter-evo nonsense.


What is this.... I don't even.... :o O_o;;

Ironically, perhaps, it seems that many 'fans' of Pokemon both want and don't want Pokemon to go in that direction of character design (Those who say that Pokemon are conversely too complicated and over-designed, while being too simple and cute).

Y'know, I have to wonder something. When new Digimon are revealed, does their fanbase immediately roar out with cries of, "These new Digimon look so stupid! They look too much like Pokemon!" It would be hilarious irony if they did.

During Digimon's earlier days, Digimon were not separated into generations the way Pokémon is. Akiyoshi Hongo would continually create new Digimon every so often as the anime, the card game, or the video games needed. Because of this, the art shift was not quite as noticeable as in Pokémon, and Digimon fans tend to be a lot more docile as far as the art style goes. (I believe Akiyoshi Hongo still designs them all but does nothing else now.)

I'm glad they have some version of Leomon in there. Leomon is the Kenny McCormick of Digimon. He dies at least once in every season. (Not all of the Digimon featured there are new, by the way.)

To be fair, when the starters were leaked we'd already had two convincing fakes (remember Giruja and the Llama-thing?) from 2ch and most people had been predicting stuff like those below for the evos.

People got confused very quickly, especially with the 24 hour removal from the main page, the claims of a PJN commenter they had faked them, Melkor claiming they were real...it was a messy two weeks. And of course, there was Archaic and other peoples behaviour when the scans showing the mid-evos in Corocoro appeared (days went by before some sites posted that one image because there was a minor scanning error that caused Reshiram's nose to appear to cross the page boundary).

And yeah...mess.

I hated those two weeks with such a passion. Knee-jerk reaction for me was fake because of, well, all the fakes going around, and I believed the first couple of forensic image analysis; but after a while I came to accept them and eventually stopped caring and just wanted everyone to shut up.

It was just baffling the lengths people were willing to go to not believe the stupid things after a while.
Take those corocoro scans with the middle stages. I thought (amongst others) that they were fake because they didn't appear to match up with the other pages. When it was found out it was part of a pamphlet that was torn out for picture purposes, I leaned on the side of believeable.
But not everyone! People were willing to discount virtually all the pages if it meant that one page was false (if the starter page was false, the Aloe page was false, so the Triplets page was false so the....). Then there was some nonsense with Reshiram's nose and oh god it was like the Floaroma Gate x1000

Even I thought they were fake when I passed on the link of the BlueSky article to Serebii. It was only that they came from a part of 2ch that leaks had come from before that initially made us suspicious and then Joe sent them off and got confirmation from the contact.

Then this guy (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DFjf_Klucuc&feature=mfu_in_order&list=UL) was really lucky, cause the fifth pokémon he encountered in that cave was a Tynamo, You just have to have patience or a lot of luck to encounter one.

I'm actually a bit happy for America and Australia that they also can get the Crown Beasts over Wi-Fi. I'm also happy they are transferable before the Elite 4, they are transferable as soon you reach Castelia City to be precise.

$250 is a reasonable price for what we'll be getting.
Back on topic, yay more English pics. I love how all the names are correctly capitalized, I had to do this manually in the previous generations.

i know that everyone wants to get back on topic, i do as well actually. but the main reason why kids, i assume teenagers(11-16) have them is cause of their parents. or they can afford to pay the monthly bill.

Speaking as a teenager, I disagree with you. I have goals, and I'm sure others do too. I focus on something, at the moment the 3DS and Pokémon White, and keep at it. If you put pocket money aside each week, you'll eventually have sufficient money to purchase whatever you were aiming for. "Kids" aren't stupid, you know, parents don't do everything for them. :|

...Is it just me or does one of those Digimon look like Starfy?

Ugh, I wish people would stop complaining. I admit it, when I saw the evo sheet, I was thinking "Yeah, they're probably fake". Then I saw the second stage scan and thought "Hey, they might be real". Then the games came out and it clicked. I liked Samurott. I liked Emboar. And I loved Serperior - the same 'got to have it' feel I first got for Snivy.

I think the reason why people complain is that it isn't ever exactly how they want it - unless they're either complete copies of their Fakémon or not even made at all, not to scorn their 'precious' first gen. They set too high expectations and moan when they can't be kept.

I like Pokemon from all gens. I just see new ones and think - hey cool! Sure there are some new ones I don't like - the ugly cloud things (I don't call them genies... my REAL favourite is a true genie) andd Stunfisk. But those FOUR are out of 156, and there are plenty of new ones I DO like. So yeah.

Speaking of Fakémon, ages ago I made some. The funny part? Two of them were a fire type starter line - an anteater to be exact. And a fire type candle.

Black and White came out and I saw Heatamor and Litwick.

I laughed. =]

Just saw the new names confirmed on the B/W site. The one that gets me the most ... Alomomola. Seriously? It's another palindrome like Girafarig, though I end up saying it as "Aloe-moe-mole-a" which reminds me of 'Alohomora' in Harry Potter. Maybe NoA is on a Potter kick, as was suggested with Litwick (Professor Flitwick).

Swanna is a fail. Deerling's already starting to grow on me, though. And I'm happy that Victini's keeping it's name :D

Question, though: Why is Victini being referred to as a "Mythical" pokemon on the official site? (US version, not sure if it's different in other languages) Are Black and White going to refer to all Legendaries as being "Mythical" rather than "Legendary"? Or is it just because Victini's an event pokemon?

Considering only Victini has been referred to as "Mythical", and not Zekrom &/or Reshiram, the general consensus is that its the new equivilant of "Phantom" Pokemon.

Alomomola is based on the sunfish, otherwise known as a mola mola. Like it's Japanese name, Alomomola puts a stress on being matronly, like a mother. It's Alo-MOM-ola.

Litwick isn't necessarily Harry Potter-based, as it's a candle with a lit wick. Easily explained.

Snowyarticuno: I really don't have anything against Alomomola and didn't mean for it to come out sounding like it did. I guess I like it more now that the English names sounds like something from Potter. (Or maybe that's just how I'm saying it) I haven't really been a fan of it since it was revealed because of the whole Luvdisc thing, but I'm more indifferent to it now.

I just don't get the play on words with Swanna. And I feel like NoA chose it just because they couldn't think of anything better. I know that Deerling is a play on 'Deer' + 'dearling' (refering to something small and cherished, etc) so that one just made more sense to me.

Thanks for clearing that up jwla, it makes sense now :)

Deerling is most likely Deer+Yearling or Darling. Yearling is a young horse or deer. Also Sapling is a young tree so that could be part of the name as well.

When I first heard 'Deerling' I thought ewww -___-;; but like most punny names, it grows on you the more you think it over. It isn't just darling/deer/dear, it's yearling too, which is a reference to its seasonal coat, and what I most missed in the translation ^^ (since it's, like, the biggest selling point of that poke) So good on ya, Ninty *royal thumbs up*

I disagree that saying a pokemon is unoriginal is just saying you don't like a pokemon. Proof? Many of the pokemon I love most are pretty damn unoriginal. Charizard says hi =3 It IS a matter of opinion, but 'unoriginal' is still not the same as saying 'I don't like this pokemon'. But I do see your point - ppl need to stop wangsting. There are over 150 new pokemon to choose from...I say if you can't find anything you like in that selection, then for god's sake put yourself and all of us out of your misery. Nobody is forcing you to play anymore.

Hey, does anyone know if we're going to keep getting city/town/attack names leaked up to release, or will we just get everything in a big infodump on the day now? Less than a month to go ^^;;

Quite a lot of puns can be pulled from Deerling, so it's not as if there's one single reference we could pinpoint. Deer, yearling, darling, dearling, -ling, ling, etc.

so basically Deerling is a literal deerling, a young deer, a darling <3, a yearling, and a shrub 0.o that's a lot... who ever knew that pokemon could make a great name that seems so punnyfuliously awesome :D

While we're on the subject, what was charizard made up of???
