Now, we all know there are some 300+ Pokes... even more now that D/P are coming out. But I was always curious as to the names of them. Some of them are obvious combinations of descriptive words (like Bulbasaur or Squirtle), but quite a few come from obscure and interesting origin.

So here's the game:

I will start with a Pokemon. The first person to describe the origin will then name another Pokemon, and the next person will give a name origin, and name a Pokemon, and so on and so on. Not sure how well this will turn out, but what the hell, let's give it a shot!

I'll start with one I know and find the most interesting:

Who can give me the origin of the name...

Even though this is a "game", it has nothing to do with any of the actual games. Pokémon related "fun-games" belong in the Funtime in Pokéland forum, so I'll move it there.

this sounds fun okay

Kirlia: closely resembles a ballet dancer; it stands on tip-toes at all times

Alright now look up Banette

okay here it goes
Banette's name is a portmanteau of bane, meaning a source of harm, and marionette, meaning a hand-controlled puppet.

next is
Stop the cycle of hate!
Wondertrade version-exclusives Pokemons or rare Pokemons
NOT Bunnelbies or Elemental Monkeys!
If you appreciate what you got in trade, O-Power the person!
Shout "Nice" to the person whom you traded to!
Together WE can stop the cycle of hate!
It doesn't hurt you to be nice or appreciative.
Don't be that underaged player who doesn't know better!
Good Pokemons to trade: Leftover breeds, Shiny Pokemon, Rare Pokemon, HA Pokemon, Dittos
FC: 4038-6797-4873. Flying-type with Doduo, Tranquil and Tropius.
Remember to tell me if you added me!
