Wow, cool! Then Seedoweedo was just a rumour? I like the new name better though.

There's a post like this in some other forum, but this one seems more appropriately placed, so I'll say here that Bonsly really isn't what I was expecting it to be called...I was thinking of something along the lines of Sudosappo or Seedowoodo or Sudoseedo. And on top of it all, even though it's going to be in XD, that really doesn't do much for me. Pokemon that are exclusive to console games can't reach their full potential, unfortunately. Poor Bonsly is just being exploited to sell games ;-;

Not bad. Not good either.

"Bonsly" sounds like a fat spoiled British brat to me for some reason.

Wow! That's a really crappy name. Why did they change it?

Bonsly? Whaaa!!! Jesus, sounds way to much like bonzai or botany! I like Usohachii a lot better! First Munchlax, now Bonsly.

My hopes for NoA went down by 5 more points after hearing this :(

Gawd! Bonsly sounds like a bad last name rather than a Pokemon pre-evo. It makes you think what they'll do for Manene and Manyura. They better not mess those up *fills gun*

Bonzai (the plant) and Sly (as in being sly)

Um... it took me a few minutes to realize that it was like "Bonzai". XD

It's okay... I didn't really expect anything better from NoA. Perhaps they didn't want to use 'seed' in the name because of Seedot. *shrug*

Shinin- Pokman fans just love to complain about NoA ^_~

Do you pronounce Bonsly 1) bonslee or 2) bon-sly

I prounouce it like #1. XD Now that I realize it could be number 2, I like it a lot better!

SEEDOWEEDO PWNED BONSLY!

I pronounce it Bonslee. To pronounce it Bon-sly would be even more awkward than it already is.

If I ever buy XD I'm going to nickname it Seedoweedo ;_;

But if you pronounce it "BON-SLY" (with the Y as in fly) it makes more sense. Think about it; it's a pun. And you know those Pokemon namers love puns... even the American ones, lol. Look at it and tell me you don't see it:

Bonsai: A Japanese tree with stunted growth due to root and limb pruning
Sly: Tricky or shrewd.

A sly bonsai: Bonsly.

Get it? The pokemon is like a bonsai, but it's really not a grass type, so it's only pretending to be one. Hence the sly part. I think the whole thing was a little bit too vague, though. I didn't figure it out right away either, lol.

And my theory of NoA actually being more intelligent than 4Kids goes out the window. Just... why!?

I like bon-sly better too XD And your explanation makes sense Shuko.

@ Kaga- I think I'll do that too! =3

I got that it meant sly bonsai when I first saw it, but bons-lee still rolls off the tongue better. I intentionally mispronounce a few names if it makes them sound better. Take Lugia for instance. I say Loo-guy-ah instead of Loo-gi-a because Loo-gi-a sounds like something that I cough up when I have bronchitis.

Why does everyone hate the names? They're not that bad. No they're worse. Why Nintendo why? What have we done to deserve this?

Well, i liked Seedoweedo more... Bonsly is not as good as it, but not VERY bad.

Seedoweedo sounds like it's a weed. It's not a weed, it's a Bonsai Tree. So, Bonsly sounds better IMO.

Chairman Kaga

Trees cultivated in the art of bonsai are very twiggy. Bonsly is way too bulbous to be a bonsai tree, looking far more like a seed. Weedo would have been acceptable for rhyming purposes.

The name is probably a double-misnomer at that. I dare NoA to prove that Bonsly is sly in any way, shape, or form.
