    As the title says, more English Pokemon names were revealed for the upcoming Pokemon Black and White games. So here they are:
    -Chillarmy (Japanese name) His English name is Minccino. If you don't know them by name, I included spoilers after every pokemon to see a picture.
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    -Gigaiasu (Japanese name) His English name is Gigalith. Here's a pic:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    -Munna (Japanese AND English name) her name didn't change. Well at least I THINK it's a her. I didn't play the Japanese game yet to know if it can be a male too [​IMG]
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    -Hihidaruma (Japanese name) Its English name is Darmanitan. Here's a pic:

    -Mamepato (Japanese name) Its English name is Pidove. Here's a pic:

    -Shimama (Japanese name) Its English name is Blitzle. Here's a pic:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    -Gear (Japanese name) Its English name is Klink. Here's a pic:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    -Professor Araragi (Japanese name) Her English name is Professor Juniper. I actually like it [​IMG] Juniper.. Do you guys really need a pic?

    -Meguroko (Japanese name) Its English name is Sandile. Here's a pic:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    -Hiun City (Japanese name) This major city's English name is Castelia. Here's a pic:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Sorry if a thread has already been made for this. I searched and couldn't find.
    Anyway, my opinions:
    I like the new names, but some are too hard to pronounce, like Minccino. Why is there two c's? How should I pronounce this?
    Or like.. Munna! [​IMG] Should I put pressure on the N or just pronounced it like "muna" ?
    Pidove... Is this pronounced "Puh-doe-vee" or "Puh-dove" ? [​IMG]
    Anyway, I really like Araragi's new name Juniper. It suits her [​IMG] Unova is a terrible name but Castelia is nice [​IMG]
    So yeah enjoy the new English names all [​IMG]

    Chillarmy should have stayed Chillarmy, it's catchy and easy to learn you know for kids.

    I didn't get anything wrong [​IMG] I'm just saying that Castelia is a good translated name but Unova is terribly translated [​IMG]

    @Goli: Are you sure? My bad, stupid website.

    Did anyone find that Mijumaru's (Japanese Water Starter) name in english hilarious? I found the name totally pathetic to the point of laughing at it! But then again all 3 starter names were terrible. Tipig? Snivy? Oshowott?!???!?!!?!?!?! WTF?!

    Mamepato.

    In spanish it´d be something like: mahmehh - phátooh

    Japanese*
    Wouldn't it be mahmehpatoh? That's how it's pronounced in Japanese and the Spanish and Japanese pronunciation is the same for both in this case. If it was "ph" it would be pronounced as an "f", which it isn't. I don't know why you snuck up a tilde either.

    I'm from D.R. and I know what you mean, but if you put them together it doesn't sound like that all... At least to me it doesn't
