    I like the name 'Finn' for Shizui. It fits his looks, his apparel, and his type specialty. Alder's grandson reminds me of "Fang" from Dave the Barbarian (hopefully somebody appreciates that reference). I don't really understand what's up with him yet, so I can't think of a name. He looks like Alder, though, and he uses Volcarona, so I would imagine that a fitting name would have to do with the sun or moths. Perhaps 'Sonny'.

    I think they'll surprise us and name blue guy something like Jenkins or Roger.

    EDIT: 900th post only 100 more and also I think blondie should be named Dexter.

    From Serebii.net
    In The Games Department
    Pokémon Black 2 & White 2 / Dream Radar - US & European release details

    Various Pokémon Black 2 & White 2 localisation details have been announced. First, it is out in the US on October 7th and Europe on October 12th
    PokéWood is to be called PokéStar Studios
    Shizui's US name is Marlon
    The various parts of the site have been updated to reflect this
    If this is legitimate, Marlon makes me think of Marlin, which makes me think of Nemo's dad.

    Darn, Accelgor'd

    I was expecting something more related to water, but I think I can see a hint of "marine" in the name.

    Marlon seems like a nice name, since it's a pun on the marlin - a species of fish. Shizui/Marlon has some fish-like features on him, notably the fins on his pants.

    I don't get why they decided to change Pokewood to Pokestar Studios. It sorta seemed unnecessary IMO.

      I wonder if its released in early October and not mid to late due to P4 Golden which is a big game for Vita and they don't want to release the same day due to lack of sales for Pokemon? The earlier the better. I like the October 7th date

      Moist likely copyright issues in the states but not in Japan. also people were complaining from what I heard about Pokewood. Poke Studios sounds better to me.

      Oh, so it was a cultural barrier that caused the name change. I get it now.

      I often find it hard to adjust to an English name cos I spent so much time learning the Japanese.

      Marlon really isn't pleasing compared to what it could've been. Let's just hope Alder's grandson doesn't suck. n_n

        Marlon is okay, but there is tons of better names than it, namely stuff like Nate and water related names.
        Pokestar Studios has that Hollywood ring to it imo, while Pokewood sounds more shanty-like, and barely has a Hollywood ring to it

        I like the name Pokéstar Studios, it fits it rather well imo. I'm sure if it weren't for copyright issues that it'd be called Pokéversal Studios.

          I was linked to this trailer. Apart from the very narmy voiceover, the one noteworthy thing about this is that the rival is named Hugh in it.

              PokeStar Studios is an awesome name! I really like it :)

              Oh and Marlon. Really? Suits him I guess. Oh Game Freak xD

              Rival is Hugh! Hikari was right! :o

              And okay I like being positive but Corless is a sucky name for Akuroma. I mean really >!<

              Homika's German name is the best! (Mica). Love that name.

              And Shizui's German name isn't bad, Benson. Marlon's better I think, so English wins here.

              Marlon?
              I...LOVE IT. Marlon is perfect. His hair looks like a fin anyways, so it fits. xD
              I love all the English names! Now I really can't wait. <3

                This is why I want an option to use Japanese names all this pre-release hype with the Japanese names fits and then I get the English and I'm completely lost

                  Marlon's pretty nice. It's certainly better than anything I'd come up with.

                  Corless is pretty meh, though. If they just romanized Hugh, romanizing Akuroma to Achroma would have been nice too. Oh well. I guess it's not too bad.

                    Corless? Really?

                    What an weird name... Akuroma just has a better sounding imo.

                    At least I got Hugh's name right.

                    Now we just need Banjirou and the protagonists.

                    I get how it kinda says "Colorless" but lmao even Colorless would've been better than Corless :x

                    Akuroma is what I'll stick to calling him, I think. Don't like Hugh as a rival name. :(

                      Corless also sounds a bit like coldless (Kyurem reference?). I think it's the most evil sounding name ever...even more so than Ghetsis and Cyrus.

                      Marlon makes me think of sea (Mar is spanish for sea). Not sure where the lon comes from though...

                        Pokestar Studios is the name for Pokewood. I finally realized what the "wood" in Pokewood stood for.

                        I like the English names so far. Nothing that new considering most of the region was already translated a year ago, but still a little bit fresh.

                        Corless?
                        Really? It's such a strange name, they could of just stuck with Akuroma or changed it to Achroma.
                        Marlon is an good name, just wondering how they came up with it.
                        Most of the new English names are really good, especially Roxie. :D

                          Marlon makes me think of sea (Mar is spanish for sea). Not sure where the lon comes from though...
                          Marlon is pretty much a play on Marlin, which is a type of fish(derP) as far as I know. It's cool that you saw Mar (or Mare in Latin :P) in it though.

                          I just don't get why they'd give Akuroma such a weird name. I see the evil and stuff, but it just sounds so AWKWARRRD....and like the name of a weird chubby pirate captain...Captain Corless....ewww.....it is just such a weird name and he will always be known as Akuroma to me.

                            As I said, Hugh is not confirmed to be the rival's name in English. He can be renamed anyway.

                            I'd love the female protagonist to be Alli or Allison, but that's what I already plan on naming her when I play my game haha. So...I kinda do want it to be official, but I kinda don't, cause then it'll be the norm and I will feel less original. ;( I could have sworn I read it was Mei though? The guy should be named UMMMMMMMMMMM Gira because he reminds me of Giradialkia idk. :)

                            So far I like the English names, like Roxie and Marlon, but Corless is...odd. Banjiro should be COJIRO! cause that'd make me smile. Maybe he'll be Trey, if his full name is Alder III because people usually use Trey for the third in the line.
