  • ... is to name their regions by taking a car model name and sticking a vowel in front of it. Witness...

    "uNOVA" (Chevy Nova).

    Well, with this in mind, may I suggest some names for the sixth generation regions:

    "eLESABRE" (should be obvious)
    "iCENTURY" (Buick Century)
    "aTAURUS" (Ford Taurus)
    "uCAMRY" (Toyota Camry)
    "oCIVIC" (Honda Civic)
    "eSIERRA" (GMC Sierra)
    "aCHARGER" (Dodge Charger)
    "iSONATA" (Hyundai Sonata)
    "aJETTA" (Volkswagen Jetta)
    "oGRANDMARQUIS" (Mercury Grand Marquis)
    or, one of my personal favorites:
    "uNINETYEIGHTREGENCYBROUGHAM" (Oldsmobile Ninety Eight Regency Brougham)

    Not sure how ones like Accord and E-320 would work since they already start with a vowel...

    Ok, that's sorta being exaggerated. Unova is taken from the Latin roots Uni and Nova. Much very original considering what Isshu/Unova is supposed to be.

    Nova by itself could be a very common name for anything. This claim is just ridiculous.

  • You forgot ePRIUS and iSMARTCAR :< And oSCION (since Scion model names aren't exactly words, it seems), for that matter :B

    I figured as such, but as a car guy I had to point that out (as well as come up with some truly bizarre region names xD)

    Nintendo has decided to hold off on using the names of "green" vehicles until they release another game whose name relates to the color green.

    This just in, Apple sues Nintendo over the use of lowercase i and then uppercase letters for the region "iCENTURY"
    Lol, once the major automakers settle their lawsuits against Nintendo, Apple can claim whatever may be left of the company.
