Ever looked at a Feraligatr and been stuck on how to pronounce it?
Ever come across an Escavalier and not used it at risk of spelling is name wrong?
Ever found a Pokémon like Timburr who's name was so uncreative that it brought a tear to your eye?


Here at Rebrandaco™ we hear you, and we're here to put an end to these tragedies.


If you've ever seen a Pokémon and thought it got a bad deal with its branding, this is the game for you! It's a simple task in which we will be renaming the Pokédex, suggesting new and better names for each Pokémon within. (You can change the species, too!) The first person will chose a Pokémon to be re-branded before the second person gives it a better name and picks one for the next poster - here's an example!

PinkSalmon101: Let's start - I've always thought Roserade had an awful name, what would you call it instead?
BlackTrout212: Roserade? You must mean Herose, right, the Rose Hero Pokémon? ;D But now that you mention it, I've always found Staryu's name a bit odd...
NavyKipper323: Then let's rename him! I always saw him as some kind of silent killer of the sea, so how about Shuriqua, the Aqua Shuriken Pokémon? I think Dunsparce needs a re-branding too!

Hopefully it's a simple enough game to get started with, so here we go! First up, I've always hated Slowpoke's name, so let's rebrand it! :D

    How about... Sloedull? Is that better?

    I think Exeggcute needs a renaming, Mr Spellcheck here's obviously not happy with his name

    I would change that name to Eggklust (combo of egg and klust)

    Giratina needs a better name. Makes it sound like a girl (Gtine = Xtine)

        You seriously think so?

        miltank? I don't know that Pokemon. However, I know of Lactoro, the milking cow.\

        Skuntank does not look like a tank, either. Agree with me?

        You mean Fluskunk, the Skunk Pokémon that'll make you sick for weeks? I agree, he doesn't!

        Although something that does is Bastiodon, maybe we have a more appropriate name for him?

          Bastiodon is that rhino pokemon right? I thought his name was Wallidon, the wall Pokemon.

          Another pokemon that looks like a wall is Snorlax right?

          Muk is a good name for what it's describing, but I think something more fearsome like Sludgester would do the job! (Okay that was awful I know but 'sludge' and 'monster', come on guys, a pity laugh? :D)

          Now it's time to give the god of all Pokémon a makeover - find a new name for Sandshrew!

            Well, isn't it obvious? Sandshrews name would be Sandillo! (Get it? Sand and Armadillo? Anyone? No? Ok...)

            What about Bulbasaur? It could use a new name.

            Bulbasaur's an easy one - he'll just be known as Roserex to demonstrate his plant/dinosaur hybridisation... thing? ;D

            Now rename Toxicroak, his name's too scary!

              Well, I think it should be Leonardo, after the leader of the teenage mutant ninja turtles!

              What would be a good name for Hitmonlee?

                      Gardevoir? Waifu-chan! Nah, just kidding. How about Drapind? It's dress reminds me of drapes flowing in the wind
                      EDIT: Damn, got Ninja'd

                      Well hows about Lupetric? Lupis (wolf) and Electric

                      Seeing a above poster didn't give me a Pokémon to rename, I will choose...

                      ...Grotle

                      I would rename it Turbush (Turtle + Bush)

                      Same case as above; I'll choose Trubbish! (Bet you can't guess where I got that idea from ;D)

                      I'll name him Spewsack, with 'Spew' coming from spewing out garbage juice/fumes and 'sack' being quite the obvious choice.

                      Now someone rename Pinsir because that thing bugs me :D

                      Litgas - keeping in with the 'Lit'wick vibe and lighting the lantern's gas instead of the candle's wick! (Yes that was awful I know)

                      Now rename Yanmega so the mega form will sound more sensible :D

                      Let's rename it to Yanthra. Doubles up as a Godzila reference.

                      Now, we need to do the game with Meganium.

                        I think we could call it...... Plazard? as in plant/lizard? or plant/hazard? I don't know I'm bad at this...

                        I've always want Dragonite's name to be changed.....

                          What's a Dragonite? You probably meant Dragargantuan. It evolved from Dratini, after all, and the 13-character name fits its giant status.

                          Eevee is 80% vowels. Needs to be rebranded!

                          Let's call it Deenaye - a very not clever take on DNA! ;)

                          Now rename Weezing because it makes me think of disease!
