I already love all of the new Pokemon. I'll admit, some of them had to grow on me, like Chespin and Froakie. But I love all of them now. Talonflame looks awesome, Pancham is adorable, and Litleo and Flabébé I'm absolutely in love with. I didn't get the types I wanted but I love these Pokemon so far!

I agree with you! I think the names are drifting back into the start of Pokemon. I am not sure I like the designs, though. A little... kiddy? I mean, sure, all Pokemon games appeal to kids but... this is going a little too... kiddy.

its supposed to be talon like the talons of a bird. i liked that one guys insight that Talonflame might be a placeholder name and that its actually Flarrow, that sounds freaking sick. as far as the other ones go i think theyre fine, i just hope they dont get lazy with the rest.

Love love LOVE Vivillon, even though I'm going to pronounce it wrong all the time out of choice!

Helioptile, I'm not really a fan of either. I don't know why, it just really bothers me. Either way I don't think he'll be on my team so it shouldn't have to worry too much about it!

With reference to the GenV names, sure Nintendo/GF dubbers had a few Brainfarts creating the names, but imho there's still a pretty awesome few names there. Haxorus, Heidreigon, Braviary, Unfeazant, and Samurott to name some.
I basically agree with this lady here. I liked the names of most of these new Pokemon, especially Spewpa, Vivillon, Pancham, Skrelp, Clauncher and Noivern. The starters all have good names too (I do love the ring Chespin has, and Froakie's is cute too) and while some Pokemon names are basic hybrids of certain words (Fennekin = Fennec fox + Kindle for example) I do like some of the origins with them.

I did love most of the 5th Gen Pokemon's names, a lot of them were really creative, like Elgyem and Beheeyem being pronounced like "LGM" and "BEM" and the Deino line all having names based on German names for one, two and three, representing how many heads each member of the line had. And most of the Legendaries had pretty cool names as well.

I love all of the new pokemon name so far. I still have a hard time trying to make the names Talonflame and Froakie grow for me but I still hope that Talonflame is a placeholder for Flarrow. It doesn't mean I dislike the Pokemon tho which I'm not.

I absolutely love Vivillon, Sylveon, Helioptile, Noivern, Cluncher and Skelp tho! Awesome names

At this point there are no placeholder names. If the name is up on the official site, its its official name.

I think that the names so far are pretty good (they should sound a bit mysterious, or catchy) like 'Sylveon' and 'Fennekin'. They seem realistic and creative, and official more than anything. I don't have a problem with Talonflame but it really detracts the 'Pokémonish' effect. It makes it sound like a type of flame, rather than a living creature. But I suppose the name sounds cool enough. But Xerneas and Yveltal are the best names ever created; I love them <3

thank god they're taking 10 months to have the concept of a new generation to grow on me.

That way, I can get all the hate out then and enjoy the game for what it is. Because Gen 5 kinda got ruined because I found out about it the day before I got it or something like that.


Although that was probably my fault. but anyways the point is I love all of them!!!!!asdf

Hmm, I never knew that actually. Gyarados was always a beast anyways. I always wondered how something so useless (Magikarp) could grow into such a beast, and in Feebas' case how something so ugly could become so beautiful. Hopefully, likewise, Froakie will evolve into something charming.

Lastly, Furabebe will be called Flabébé.

Again, all pretty simple and easy to remember. My favorite has to be Flabébé though. That's so cute!
Flabébé is actually great! I've never had a problem with the names though, I just kinda accepted them and thought they were mostly creative. Alomomola was ridiculous though.

No, I don't really think so. The names are strange and they always will be in my opinion. I like of the names though, a lot of them are unique. My favorite is fennekin the water froggy!

I don't really mind about the Pokemon names. Initially, the starter names were less than impressive, but over time, I've grown to them. It's really the same with any other Pokemon that this generation has presented us so far. At first it can be awkward, but I've learned not to have high expectations with naming, nor does naming have any significant bearing on whether or not I like the Pokemon as a whole, so it doesn't really bother me.

They are just names. For all I care Pokemon could have human names. I would still play it.

I didn't like Yveltal's name much, at first I misread it as Ylvetal (eel-ve-tal) which I thought was a nice name, but Yveltal doesn't really sound like a name to me :/

If you dont like them change them... They allow you to give nick names for such a reason... Dont see why you complain.

Although I don't mind most of the Pokemon names revealed so far, Talonflame just doesn't cut it for me IMO. Not only does it just sound like mesh of two unrelated words together but it's also awkward to say with the rough translation from the n sound to f sound. Other Pokemon names for example, like Voltorb, Snorlax, and even the same generation's Honedge doesn't suffer from the same problem.

Fletchling and Talonflame could have had more creative thought put into their names. Overall, the current names are still been than most of the gen1 names.

Does anyone know the name origin of Pangoro? Otherwise, I don't like his name much either.

Skrelp and Clauncher are the greatest names ever invented ever. I am thinking of naming my kids those names.

Talonflame sounds scary. Who would fight anything if all you knew about it was that it's name is "Talonflame"

Scatterbug seems a little unoriginal, but Spewpa made me laugh, and Vivillon sound epic.

It will take me a while to get used to the new names - I will probably be embarrassed to say a few of their names. It was the same way since 1st gen, and every generation after that where Pokemon got introduced I didn't like the names at first, after a while it was no problem.

Talonflame, Skrelp, Scatterbug, & Helioptile. I didn't really like their English names, in a way I wasn't expecting them that way. I wish it was much closer to its Japanese names.

[Not sure if off-topic, so I'll leave it in a spoiler tag - about my accent]
Spoiler:
Typical, I'm going to struggle with the names. I'm a Spanish speaker (my accent is the Mexican Spanish, because of my family being from Mexico, and me from California) I already struggle enough with the English pronunciations. Read a few replies back some Pokemon are supposed to sound easier with the French accent - going to struggle with that as well. I find it easier with the Japanese names. I just wished that Latin American dub changed certain Pokemon names to make them easier for Spanish speakers, like the French, German, and Korean did.

It's Panda and Goro, Goro is Japanese Onomatopoeia for "Rolling" (Hence why Gorons in Zelda are called Gorons, cause they roll)
What Pangoro has to do with rolling, I have no clue.

I like the names so far actually, especially Xerneas and Yvetal. The names are very good when you compare them to such classics as Seel, Muk and Roggenrola.
