Wow...I don't really like either of those names. >> I would have preferred the Japanese names.

Hmm.... NOt sure what to say.

Ok. We have these professional people at Nintendo and this is what they give us for Manene? Mime Jr.? That is going to be a monthful to say. Mr. Mime is easy to say but Mime Jr. is a hard one to say. Jr. Mime sounds better but ok. Yeah. Good one.

Not much to say on the other one.

Couldn't agree more. Mime Jr. is very unoriginal :(

Neither of those names are really spectacular - while they're not the worst I've ever seen, they're also far from from being the best...

"Weavile" annoys me a bit. It makes me think of things besides something that's a sneasel evolution - such as "weevil" (as in the species of insect). >_< "Mime Jr." is rather boring; but then again, "Mr. Mime" is the same way, so I wasn't expecting anything too grand, admittedly.

Wow...Mime jr.???
As much as I dislike the name and dislike admitting this it makes sense seeing as how it's evolved form is Mr. Mime ><;

But I seriously preffer the Japanese names over these two.
Weavile is...weird...I couldn't possibly have been able to relate it to Sneasel if I hadn't seen this thread. The names are just bleh.

Remember folks, it's most likely pronounces Wee-Vyle. "Wea" as in weasel, and "Vile" as in, cruel or malicious. Not the other kind of vile >>;

I guess they both make sense and all, but couldn't they show some more creativity? Mime Jr. is okay and doesn't really fase me... bu Weavile? Come on. I like Manuyala better...

Its as original as Seel's name. Its a seal, yet they only change one letter the capitalize the word. That's not really changing anything.

Same here I'll end up finding Mime Jr. an annoying name.

When I first thought of a U.S name for Manene i always thought of it being Mime jr. or something else.

Mime Jr. isn't too original, but I like Weavile. It fits it pretty well.

May 28th, 2006, 3:40 PM
Mmm... we all use these names eventually. I think Weavile is a pretty good name. o.o;

May 28th, 2006, 10:38 PM
Nah those names suck....

They shoulda stuck with the japanese. But wait, there are the 10 year old american kids that have to be bought in. >_<

Hmm... Mime Jr. sounds nothing but ok. Many of us guessed it months ago anyway... :P Weavile sounds a bit... terrible. I'm not sure really but I hate it. I prefer Manyula really...
