View Full Version : Naming Hackmon

How does everyone make up the names for Hacked Pokemon? Anything will help right now...I never see creative names like the first gen had (Horse + Sea = Horsea, a horse from the sea) which is clever

Maybe they check how sprite looks and then something will pop up in their minds

When I make up names for my hacked Pokémon, I usually take a few words, that's got something to do with the Pokémon, I've "created", in one way or another. To give a few examples:

"Dolphreeze", a dual-type Water/Ice Pokémon based on a dolphin. (Dolphin + Freeze)
"Chimtsu", a dual-type Normal/Fighting Pokémon based on a Chimpanzee. (Chimpanzee + Ninjutsu)
"Canbur", a Fire-type Pokémon based on a candle. (Candle + Burn)
"Psyclord", a dual-type Ghost/Psychic Pokémon based on a sort of cyclops. (Psychic + Cyclops + Lord)

Naming them is based on their Type/Culture/Nature and Origin. It depends on it.

It depends on what it is based on. For example, I made a Electric Eel Pokemon and named it Eelock (Eel + Shock.) So yeah, for me, it depends on what it's based on. XD

think of some words to do with its type, appearance, nature
and sort of put them together

not sure about this one . hmm maybe you could do some language translations to make it authentic

I like to find scientific or archaic words related to the fakemon's basis and make a simple portmanteau with another word that relates to its typing or abilities.

Of the fakemon names I've created in my mind, my favorite is "Capcinerate", a portmanteau of "capsicum" and "incinerate" for a fire/grass jalapeno pokemon.

I'd probably name them based on their base pokemon what they do/type:
scarangoo: Kangaroo + Scary(ghost)

Yeah pretty sure the thread maker doesn't need naming help anymore. ;x
