Dark is proably an abbreviation, iirc their japanese was the Dark triad or something around those lines. So in the english version they'll proably be refered to as Shadow.

I don't see the player as Cory or Kory either. Maybe his name will be Calvin? (If so I'll name a cat Pokemon Hobbes).

They had them translated as "Shadow Triad 'Dark'" Like it had a name. But Bulbapedia doesn't have that.


Male PC kinda feels like a Dennis and the girl looks like a Bridget.

I definitely don't see a Dennis in him lol. Dennis makes me think of Denny's though, and obviously that kid doesn't look like a building. Or pancakes. I like Bridget though, or some variation of it. tbh as long as they don't name her some unisex name or something like Susan, I will be happy. But saying that, I've jinxed it and they'll name her Susan. ick.

hmph
I'm going to call the players and rival by their Japanese names

pity about Homika and Shizui's name butchering though

I wish there was an option to use Japanese names for the main story and setting it so you can english pokemon names and japanese character names...

I think thats all the new citys/town that have been named. We still need Shizui's (not Marlon) town to be named

That is such a great idea that us over-proud Americans would never implement

Maybe Marlon's town will have a name similar to Venice like Aqaenice (aqua plus Venice).

I don't think they butchered Roxie and Marlon's names, they are still better than BW's protagonists.

Do you think they'll change the names of some of the lesser places and things such as the Plasma Frigate? It seems like they would keep it the way it is but we thought the same about Pokewood.

Okay, just thought I'd bring this up: Akuroma/Achroma is now known as Colress.

IMO, that doesn't roll off the tongue as well as "Corless" did.

I'm kinda confused why Kevin would be the rivals name. Just because it starts with K like Kyurem? Is that something GameFreak usually does to name characters?

Other tahn that, I like Ivey for Homika and Flynn for...that water guy...

P. S. I've never seen it spelled Ivy for a name. But that doesn't mean much, I only know two Iveys. :P

Wonder what's the right spelling Colress, or Corless. I hope it's Corless and the other form was just a typo on the site.

WAT!?!?

COLRESS?!?! that has no point whatsoever. It makes me trip over my tongue, it doesn't sound as evil, and it doesn't have any real symbolism like Corless=Colorless did. UGGGHHHH i HOPE THIS IS A TYPO

Akuroma´s English name revealed!

His name is Colress. He is a Pokémon strength researcher.

I don't know what it means but it sure doesn't suit him, For a second I thought it was Corless but definitely didn't expect that.

Colress = Colorless.

Corless was possibly the typo.

Colress. A bit harder to pronounce but it's a nice name.

I guess they were doing the whole "colorless" theme.

I guess Corless was just a typo after all.

I had my doubts about the "Corless" spelling, and "Colress" fits better with the other unpronounceable Plasma-related names.

I'm just a little crazy sometimes.
OK, a lot crazy all the time.

My romhacks and Essentials games are on hold until Essentials is updated.

That's what I was thinking as well.
Though I do think the other name does roll off the tongue better. xD

I always saw Corless as a contraction of the world Color (removing the l and O) with less. the R instead of the L in the less part looks strange to me.

I really hate Colress's name now. I had just gotten used to Corless, which semi-fit him, and now GAME FREAK drops this on us....

I suspect that even if it wasn't a typo, Game Freak may have realized that it sounded like "Core-less" reminding me of "heartless" which from what I know, Akuroma isn't...fully. Or maybe they thought it was too similar to Cyrus....idk.

No matter which spelling it really is, I'm going to be calling him Corless from now on. Sounds better to me.
