Does anyone else in here also think that some name of Pokemon species should be altered? Some examples below:
Example 1 - Infernape and Flareon
Pokemons that are different should have different species name. How can two different Pokemons be classified which the same species name? This happens with Infernape and Flareon, which are known as Flame Pokemons, but there are a lot of other Pokemons that share the same species name and are very different from each other. A good way to fix that is adding another word to besides "flame", in the case of Infernape and Flareon, they could be known as Flame Monkey or Flame Fox Pokémon.
Example 2 - Ditto and Lapras
Ditto and Lapras are two examples which the species is related to what the Pokemon does instead to what it looks like. Ditto executes transformation, but it is not a transformation, actually it is a pink glue-like thing. But, it is classified by what it does, and not by what it is. The same goes for Lapras, which species seems to make people think that it was born be used as transport for others, like a transport slave. But Lapras isn't a transport, it is a sea creature. Ditto and Lapras could have been given species name that would fit better with them.
Example 3 - Arcanine
Species name that is not related to the Pokemon. Arcanine is the best example. It is known as the Legendary Pokemon, but it is not a legendary... paradox.
Discuss about these examples and/or others about Pokemon species that you have noticed.
