I hear Marlon, I think Brando. *shrugs*
It's not a horrible name...it's just not a 'young, cool, tanned big-bro type fisherman dude' name. At least not to me. But ah well. I still love his character design, so I'm sure I'll get used to it in time. He seems like a great character.

I'm sorry to do this, but I won't be posting in the Serebii Discussion Forums anymore. My account here will remain open for trading/chatting with friends, but please be patient for a reply as my visits here will be fewer.
I've left for the greener pastures of Bulbagarden Forums, where free speech is still allowed and the rules are followed by all, including those who enforce them.
It's been a fun 3 years ~
When you get use to a character's name from one version and a different name is given to another version that's being released in your country, it can take some time to get use to. Some people take the change harder than other's, hence, the discontent. This wasn't (much of) an issue back before Generation four/five.Hot damn. I never realized the humongous amount of discontent localized names made.

Unless the name is essentially insulting, there can never be a problem with a name, it's a name. It's simply a matter of personal like and dislike, of which is an opinion and as such, holds no grounds in determining if there is "something wrong" with a name.
How can there even be "something wrong" with a name...I mean come on.

yes, quiteFor centuries surfing was a central part of ancient Polynesian culture. Surfing might have been first observed by Europeans at Tahiti in 1767 by Samuel Wallis and the crew members of the Dolphin who were the first Europeans to visit the island in June 1767. Another candidate is the botanist Joseph Banks being part of the First voyage of James Cook on the HMS Endeavour, who arrived on 10 April 1769 on Tahiti. Lieutenant James King was the first one who wrote about the art of surfing on Hawaii when completing the journals of Captain James Cook upon Cook's death in 1779.
Marlon is Shizui's English name? Oh my God. It's genuinely terrible. I was hoping that he would have a cooler-sounding name like Finn. Ugh. I'm so depressed, but at least I still have Roxie. I've grown to like that name.
Also, I would love to know what exactly a Roxanne would be, or a Misty, an Erika, a Norman, a Whitney.. how about Clair? Candice, Gardenia, Lenora.. seriously. What stereotype fits their name then?
Let the people dislike the name. No one is obligated to like everything in the franchise.
I am getting used to Marlon, even though the name does not fit him.
Corless is just bad.
1) Marlon reminds me of Malon. Cute.
2) What's this about the Elite 4 being downloadable content over at the Discovery forum?
3) I'm sad that Wallace doesn't have a Lumineon. It suits him perfectly.
Please don't whine on English names, the french ones are the ugliest ever seen
What are they then? Strykna for Roxie and Amana for Merlon? Sound okay to me. Then again, they all look fine to me.
Marlon's fine to me. Corless is just terrible to me though, so obvious and yet nonsensical at the same time. Achroma had the same meaning and would have been fine for English.
Breeder of many Treeckos, master of none.
Guys, lets shut up about Marlon. The real bad naming here is Corless. What f****** parent would name there kid Corless?
