      I like the name, also the legendaries match the names of the game which indicates to me that they will play a large part of the game. I like the names, I like froakie's name the best!

      Chespins name is actually really creative. I don't mind the other too as well. Xerneas and Yvetal are a mouthful to say, but are fine too.

        They're already English names. Mind you, they were first revealed on the English Pokemon Site. No point of changing.

          Hey guys not posted in a while,

          So I was wondering the names of the starters and both the legendarys for the 6th GEN we know so far I really think they sound awesome and original does anybody else feel like this gen is going to be the return of awesome and original names which we missed since GEN 3 :D

            I don't quite understand by what you mean by "Original" names. All Pokemon in every Generation have had Original names. There wasn't much that isn't very original outside of a few generic clones such as the Regional Birds, Regional Rats, and Pikachu clones.

            All of them except Fennekin imo. Fennekin just seems so... long? Fenkin would be muuuch shorter and suit Froakie/Chespin better in terms of how it's said imo. Plus it'd sound closer to Tepig then :(

            Hm... Fenkin... instead of Fennekin would've been shorter, but I think the name "Fennekin" sounds better in my opinion. 'Cause you get to say "Fennec" as in "Fennec Fox" and then "Kindle". Where as if it was shortened to "Fenkin"... you wouldn't be able to say "Fennec" due to it being shorter. Either way, if it wasn't named "Fennekin", then it would've ended up being something like "Fenkindle". xD

            And besides, I like the name "Fennekin". x3

            Hm... let's see, Tepig... was a combination of Tepid and Pig, which explains why the name is short. ;)

            I think Fennekin is a nice name, it has the same amount of Syllables as Oshawott, Cyndaquil and Charmander.

              I like the name Chespin a lot. I think it really matches Chespin's figure. Fennekin also sounds good. I think Froakie is my least favorite name. I'm not saying it's bad. I'm just think it could be better. By the way, how do you pronounce Xerneas and Yvetal?

              Xerneas would be pronounced as "ZURR-nee-us" and Yveltal would be "ee-VELL-tall." It took me a little time to catch on to them, but I got adjusted to their names in good time.

              I think each of the starters have names that roll off the tongue quite easily. It just feels natural saying them aloud. I hope the same will apply for a majority of the Gen VI Pokémon. It makes them easier to remember. Some of the Gen V Pokémon have such odd names, I still haven't memorized them all.

              I get why it's Fennekin buuut still it's long. :( It could've been something like "Kinfen" and that would've fit entirely!

              When there are Pokémon around with names like Hippopotas and Alomomola, it's really hard to agree when someone says Fennekin is too long of a name. Haha. And it may be longer than "Kinfen" or "Fenkin" but it rolls off the tongue easier than those alternatives in my opinion.

              Besides you can't complain that Fennekin's name is too long when Charmander and Chikorita's names are longer; the latter of which has more syllables.

              I guess, but they just seem to fit better. :x It's just something about the double n, and starting with F that throws me off really. Yet on the other hand I'm completely okay with Yveltal and Xerneas. I'm weird.

              To be honest, it at first struck me as odd. I had a bit of a reflection to 5th generation and how the names of the starters were revealed: Snivy, Tepig, and Oshawott. It took me a while to adjust to those names, so I think this situation isn't really that different. It's just a matter of taking some time to step back and just getting used to those names, as strange as that may sound, perhaps. I wouldn't want their names to be any different since I'm already used to them at this point.

              Maybe pronouncing them is weird...at least for me. Whatever. XD

              As for Xerneas and Yveltal, it's the same situation, except it took me a bit longer to adjust(as well as pronounce their names correctly), cause of the spelling, but I don't really care now, to be honest.

              In short, none of the names really bother me now. Just like every generation, at first it's a bit of shock and a moment of adjustment, but afterwards it's fine~!
