Lucario isnt a very great name. The new names for pokemon suck.

Charmander - Salamander
Flareeon - Flare

but then comes

Umbereon - ??? What does that have to do with dark
Treeko - Tree, that isnt a tree.

Se my point

Rukario sounds cool but it doesnt flwo with pokemon. Lucario is just way to out there.

for some reason, i kinda like rukario over lucario just b-cuz i heard Rukario first and then Lucario a few days later. Whenever i hear lucario, i always think of every1's favorite sombrero-wearing Pokemon, Ludicolo.

I Prefer Lucario, Because It Is The Proper Romanazation, I've Been Saying It Forever, And It Sounds Cooler.

I kind of like Rukario better than Lucario. I don't know, the name Lucario makes me think of the name Lucas...and I am not very fond of that name. XD Plus, Rukario was the very first thing I had heard the Pokemon to be called, so I'm kind of attached to it, I guess you could say. XP

I like the name Rukario better, since it is the first name I heard this Pokemon being called(same reason as Typhlozion had), and I just like the sound of it better.

Crystal Clair
September 30th, 2005, 04:51 PM
Honestly, I like both..... It's nice having two options so if you get sick of whatever one you use, you could switch over and people can know what you're talking about.
Wait! You're doing a debate? Dont include me in it then please.

Rukario because it looks better and sounds better to me.

Zaikiro
September 30th, 2005, 08:04 PM
Rukario, it's orignal and the name that are always change does not make the game and series feel the same most of the time.

Ya~ I like Rukario.

Except Lucario is supposed to be the correct translation.

I like Rukario, it sound more evil, lucario somehow reminds me of a teddy bear o_O Don't ask, I know I'm weird.

I prefer Rukario. I'm not sure why... I just don't like L's... stupid L's!! *shakes fist*


Umbereon - ??? What does that have to do with dark

Also, on this note, I think Umbro, or Umbo, or some permutation like that, might mean "dark" or "black" in another language. It sounds Spanish to me, but maybe some one who speaks Spanish (or the language it does come from) could clear that up. =)

I like "Rukario" better, but something tells me it's going to be changed to "Lucario" (if not someing completely different) when the new games are translated.

If you watch the trailer and listen realllly carefully you'll notice, at the end he says the title in japanese but says Lucario.

That would be because Japanese R's sound exactly like, as one guide once described it, "the sort of sound an R would make if the mouth tried to make an L." In other words, they sound almost the same.

Likewise, K's and C's (not Ch's, which are a different matter) are pretty much the same as well.

That all said, if we're going for a straight (characters-to-English, not phonetic) Romanization, I'd say Rukario would be pretty close. And it looks cooler too.

It's probably been said but it's Rukairo. R makes the L sound in japanese. It's annoying seeing Lucario...

I think Rukario is better but I have no legit reason other than it sounds better. I guess I just got used to the name.

I don't see your point. Umbreon I think is from the color 'Umber' which is a dark color, and Treecko... Tree Gecko anyone?

There is not **** difference. One day you're all going to get used to saying Lucario, even though you say Rukario now, it's going to change. Remember when R/S first came out? We all called Treecko Kimori, and Torchic Achamo. Hey look, just now Squirrel called it Treecko... SO yea, It's going to change, so shut up about Rukario being better and all. There is no **** difference.

Rukario sounds better to me, but techinically as far as correct pronounciation it can be either one, becaue in Japan 'L's are the equivalent of 'R's.

But I call him Rukario.

Rukario is better and maybe the U.S version of Diamond and pearl will name him the Jappanese name Rukario or the english name Lukario.XD

And YOU should stop ****ing flaming XD Not all people say the English meaning, so stop being so freakin' n00bish, ok?

(you should meet Edward Elric on sppf X3 Yeah, that'd be hilarious)

But seriously, are you people so naive?

There is no L in the Japanese alphebet. Its spelled out Rukario but pronounced Lukalio.. If your Japanese then you'd pronouce it Rucario (but it would come out sounding like 'Lucalio') but if your American then you'd pronounce it Rukario and it would come out sounding like Rukario..

Remember, they prononce it Rukario but to Americans it sounds like Lucalio..

Umbra is Latin for Shadow
I think in Spanish shadow is Umbre
It has something to do with shadow
Treecko:tree+gecko

I like Rukario better, it sounds more powerfull

Umbereon - ??? What does that have to do with dark
Nice, 43 posts and no one has answered this properly. (By the way, it's spelled Umbreon)

"Umbra" is a word in the English language. It's an area of completely shadow, usually from an eclipse. It may be similar or the same in other languages, but the fact that no one picked up on English first is rather disturbing...

Anyway, I like Rukario better. Lucario's just one of those stupid purist fanatic things who can't stand having anything remotely changed while translating from Japanese (in my opinion).

Kotowari
November 5th, 2005, 11:37 AM
I don't know the English language that well...
Maybe umbra is used in many languages.
Latin is older than english, so we're both right

Lucario isnt a very great name. The new names for pokemon suck.

Charmander - Salamander

Treeko - Tree, that isnt a tree.

Se my point

Rukario sounds cool but it doesnt flwo with pokemon. Lucario is just way to out there.

Treeko lives in trees (or rather, the forrest) and is a gecko. Umbreon goes with the -EON suffix pattern of the eevee evolutions, the prefix umbre- means a dark shadow-like pigment. Sounds appropriate for a dark type, no? ;)

Anyways...I'm going to go with Rukario until they announce an official name for it. It's official enough for now, anyways :P

Bluestar Jet
November 6th, 2005, 06:27 PM
Rukario, but it it was brought up as Lucario, then this wouldn't be a poll. :)
Oh BTW umbreon is "ombre" (french for shadow)

Go Morita
November 6th, 2005, 07:23 PM
ahh...so that's how they romanised it, alright. Good to know, the US team used more than one language to base the names :)

No. They haven't OFFICIALLY romanized it yet. It is just a rumor that it will be Lucario. I'm thinking they should make it Rucario.

When I first heard of the new Legendary,it was Rukario.
So I stick with Rukario,and,I guess it sounds easier to pronouce(to me anyways.^^)then Lukario.

A- Because it sounds better.
B- Because I just found out that some people call him Lucario yesterday o_O.

December 8th, 2005, 06:50 PM
ok,just a little hint here..L and R are interchangeable in japanese.
c and k are the SAME sound.

for instance,coro coro magazine can be written both coro coro
and Koro Koro.they both sound the same right?

So you see the they can be said both ways.just as how lugia in japanese
can be said Rugia or Lugia .So there is no point in this theard.They
basiclly are the same word in japanese.
