    Do you like to know Pokémon names in other languages?
    Are there Pokémon names in other languages that you prefer over the English ones?

    For example, I think Espeon's German name "Psiana" sounds really wonderful and I think I like this name better than the English one.

    Also, if I check a Pokémon on Bulbapedia, I always tend to look at what its name is in other languages.

    I'm obsessed with French Pokemon names.

    Blastoise = Tortank
    Volcarona = Pyrax
    Espeon = Mentali
    Psyduck = Psykokwak
    Golduck = Akwakwak

    The names are just amazing.

    Aside from English and Japanese, the only other one I like more is Persian's German name - Snobilikat.

      Everyone says that the Japanese names are the best, but I disagree- the French names are the best, in my opinion.

      Eelektross - Ohmassacre
      Dunsparce - Insolourdo
      Gengar - Ectoplasma
      Mawile - Mysdibule
      Heracross - Scarhino
