Do you like to go with a theme as Kanto did with colours, do you name them in accordance with their surroundings/scenery, or do you just name them completely at random?

    Yes, I name it following a pattern. In my new fangame, "Pokemon Liquid Adventures" I've named the cities as fishes names or things related with the sea

      Currently, mine are given names based on some aspect of the city/town, whether that's aesthetics, the surrounding area, or even the gym leader. For example, a town next to a mining facility, where the gym leader specializes in ground-types, has "terra" somewhere in the name.

      Mine are all based on flowers/ their meanings and how that works into the town's theme. For example, the starting town is named after the Plumeria flower, which represents new beginnings. I've written up a list of 72 flowers (many of which have multiple meanings) so I doubt I'll be struggling for names any time soon~

        I usually name them based on a theme. The locations in Discovery are named after nautical terms (Pontoon Village, Port Galleon, etc).

        I used to just jumble up a bunch of consonants and throw a few vowels in there. Had some weird sounding places I can tell you that much.

        Now I prefer to name them in accordance with their surroundings/scenery:

        Waterway City
        Greendale Village
        Union City
        Highwind Village
        Hotel Trivago (jk)
