Do you like to know Pokémon names in other languages?
Are there Pokémon names in other languages that you prefer over the English ones?

For example, I think Espeon's German name "Psiana" sounds really wonderful and I think I like this name better than the English one.

Also, if I check a Pokémon on Bulbapedia, I always tend to look at what its name is in other languages.

I'm obsessed with French Pokemon names.

Blastoise = Tortank
Volcarona = Pyrax
Espeon = Mentali
Psyduck = Psykokwak
Golduck = Akwakwak

The names are just amazing.

Aside from English and Japanese, the only other one I like more is Persian's German name - Snobilikat.

Everyone says that the Japanese names are the best, but I disagree- the French names are the best, in my opinion.

Eelektross - Ohmassacre
Dunsparce - Insolourdo
Gengar - Ectoplasma
Mawile - Mysdibule
Heracross - Scarhino
