I like all the names so far, English or French (I live in France) . They are simple, easy to pronounce, and reflect more or less what the Pokémon is. As I've said in the thread about deigns, I like when the Pokémon people keep it simple.

There's also one thing I noticed about French names: at least two of them, Pandespiègle (Pancham) and Cabriolaine (Skiddo) are more than 10 letters long. Looks like that limit is getting bumped up to 12!

One last thing: for those who say Gen 1 names are not that creative, I'm surprised no one mentioned the absolute worst Pokémon name ever in terms of being creative: Golem. It's just the word "golem". As much as I like simple Pokémon names, just using an already existing word without changing it at all is too much even for me.

PM before adding. If you don't mention which code you added, I will NOT add you back.

I freaking hate Flametalon's name. Flame and talon. Oooh, original! It's a Fire type with talons! I would have never guessed...

The rest are okay, but the Japanese name for Spritzee was awful XD

The naming has been pretty bad this generation really... there are very few that I actually love like Malamar and Spritzee...
those names are memorable and classic sounding to me already.

I agree, the only Pokémon with a bad name here is Talonflame as it's, well, too obvious, there's no guessing involved, unlike with all the other names, where you've had to guess what words make them up.

In fact, we're all still clueless about Xerneas and Yveltal's names.

I'm still trying to forget about Talonflame...
It's a shame... such an amazingly designed Pokemon ruined with such a name.
