    Now the starters have English names, that's all.
    Also, Isshu is now called Unova.
    Reshiram and Zekrom kept their Japanese names.

    Fuck the name changes. I'm disgusted. At least make them funny. Oshwatt? What the fuck? Snivy? Real clever. Tepig? Lame. Unova? Meh. Disappointing. I was hoping for something cool too. Even Smugleaf was a better plan.

    Well from what I heard, Unova is supposed to be a play on words.

    For everybody complaining that the US names sound lame and are puns on the actual animals/elements, THAT'S THE SAME SHIT THEY DO IN JAPAN, YOU JUST DON'T PICK UP ON IT BECAUSE IT'S A DIFFERENT LANGUAGE.

    Just thought i'd point out that it should be spelt 'Oshawott'.

    and why on earth would they rename the region?
