    A Nintendo Italy employee has "leaked" the whole 5° Generation Pokemon List with all the localized names and ablities (the latter are in Italian, obviously).
    Here it is:

    Im disappointed.
    I have all 493 pokemon names memorized.
    only because they were simple and catchy.
    but these....
    ugh
    most of them dont even make sense.
    I prefer the japanese names for most if not all of them
    theyre creativity (or simplicity?)
    is gone

    That better be some kind've mistake.
    If not I think Im gonna edit the ingame names to something better, or atleast something that makes sense.

    Starting with Smugleaf and Piglit
    and WOTTER
    ugh Wotter is such a better name than oshawott, who wants Canadian references in pokemon.....besides Canadians.

    It's called Watchdog since it's a Groundhog. Get it? I wish I didn't...

    it just resembles another word into the name, which it pretty stupid, cuz the prvious pokemon names were so much better and easier to remember. i guess they just didnt spend as much time coming up with the names and focused more on the game itself

    The English names have been a bit silly and forced for a while now. Honestly, lame localized Pokemon names are a fact of life. Why's everyone making such big deal out of it? As if naming imaginary video game characters is a divine art. [​IMG]

    Holland, somewhere :D
    The point is that the japanese names made some sense, after all they were a bit coolish. All of the other gens had cooler names, original. But a lot of these names don't make sense or are deformed, uninspired. I mean Samurott ?! (thats Daikenki for you in japanese) It's a bit sad to see a good serie have such lame names.
