Unlike Johto and Kanto, most of Hoenn's towns and cities are made up of two words put together, such as 'Slate Port', 'Lily Cove', 'Verdant Turf', etc. What did you think of this naming theme? What city or town name did you like the best? Would you have preferred a colour or plant naming theme used previously?

    I liked all the towns, didn't think that there was anything wrong with the names. My favorite town by name would probably be Rustboro, it has a nice ring to it and I think it fits the town really well.

      I think they fit with the region. They all match the terrain of the area and they all just look right, like Slateport (port for ships, slate colored town) and Lavaridge (next to the mountain ridge and volcano or whatever.) But a certain town, Fallarbor, really, REALLY confused me for the longest time. I eventually realized recently it was a combination of Fall + Arbor, but I had always seen it as Fallar + Bor or Bror. It didn't make any sense.

        They all have a unique feeling and all of them fit in with the Hoenn region. Kanto's names felt more like Game Freak just picked a random theme (colours, I believe) and said "Ah screw it, no-one's gonna play this anyway".

          When you look at it closely, you'll hit realisation like a bolt of lightning.

          Like, they're all based on plants and Sea life.

          For example :
          Little Root - A small root, marks the beginning of a plant, or in this case, our journey.
          Old Ale - Old town, used to be famous; not so big now.
          Petal Burg - Thriving little town, with a few attractions.

          Get me? That way, find Ever Grande and Lily Cove too, and you'll know.

          What I think about it... it's been marked good, no, best. No stupid colour theme here, and D/P used it too, like Twin Leaf... anyway, this stuff is great, and no other theme would best this. Because It's got that indescribable feeling that will truly move you.

          I didn't mind it really. I think it was a cool change, seeing as these regions weren't attached to the others. I liked a lot of the names like Slateport City.

            I liked Pacificlog's name but also the town itself is really cool with all the corsola and the guy who can tell you about Mirage Island.
