    So, I looked at the name for the English version of the latest Pokemon region.

    It's "Unova"

    It kinda makes out to be "You no va"

    Translate the "no va" and you get "no go/don't go"

    So Unova = You don't go.

    Sounds like a great selling point! Let's hope they change this up for the Spanish translation.

    That's my cue to leg it out of this thread and into a Dry Martini.

    Maybe that has something to do with Unown.
