TELL THAT TO THE TURTLEDOVE OR THE BULLFROG
CAN YOU DENY A BULLFROG FROM BEING EITHER A BULL OR A FROG
IT CAN BE WHAT IT WANTS TO BE

It probably just feels like a bull trapped in a frog's body.

I see your bullfrog and raise you a peacock mantis shrimp.
Three different animal names, and it isn't even technically a shrimp.

Same with charmeleon (chameleon) and charmander (salamander)

Why did I never notice that?
#15 to #4 - KungFuZerO (06/14/2013) [-]
It doesnt really matter but I would bet that the "char-" just comes from the word char and not charcoal
Char means to singe or burn
#158 to #15 - racheecat (07/21/2013) [-]
So Char Lizard?
#159 to #158 - KungFuZerO (07/21/2013) [-]
Yes sir, right after char salamander and char chameleon
User avatar #35 - jokeface (06/14/2013) [-]
I don't really have a problem with Gogoat. But I was not happy with the name Talonflame. Sounds like a Transformer.

But actually I love Transformers so it's okay.
User avatar #37 to #35 - talonflame (06/14/2013) [-]
It better be okay m8 or I'll have to polish your globber
User avatar #38 to #37 - jokeface (06/14/2013) [-]
It is okay, but I'd like my globber polished anyway. It's rather filthy.
User avatar #81 to #38 - ICEDgrunge (06/15/2013) [-]
I find that all in all, it's definitely a welcomed change to the Normal/flying types you raise from the beginning like Staraptor and Unfezant and all those birdies.
User avatar #82 to #81 - ICEDgrunge (06/15/2013) [-]
Being that's it doesn't end up to be a normal/flying, I mean.
User avatar #86 to #82 - jokeface (06/15/2013) [-]
Agreed. Though how much you wanna bet one of the first gyms will be Rock type?
User avatar #91 to #86 - ICEDgrunge (06/15/2013) [-]
Without a doubt. That'd make me **** myself in anger.

GO Gogoat!

#31 - thesupervillian (06/14/2013) [-]
Actually looking at Talonflame and thinking about the name feels alright by my standards. But Gogoat doesn't really seem fitting by my perspective. Also seems silly to watch/read the words "GO! GOGOAT!" when a battle begins.
#45 to #31 - anon (06/14/2013) [-]
Do you have something against alliteration?
#73 to #31 - anon (06/15/2013) [-]
Reasons why you nickname your pokemon.
User avatar #83 to #31 - ICEDgrunge (06/15/2013) [-]
Just nickname it ********** and all your problems will be solved.
User avatar #87 to #83 - thesupervillian (06/15/2013) [-]
Thats true. But i feel like the pokemon will be used multiple times in the TV series, and theres still the identification of what it is.

You know what, I'm liking the names, they sound like Super Sentai (power Ranger) Zords

Super sentai (ranger) Red, TALOOOOOOOOOOOON FLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME!!!
Super Sentai (ranger) Green, GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GOOOOAAATT!!!

I actually like the new ones a lot more than the previous two gens so far. And personally, there will never be a worse pokemon in name or design than Mr. Mime.

Despite there also being names like that in earlier generations, it doesn't change the fact that "Talonflame" and "Gogoat" are lazily constructed Pokemon names

I'm fairly certain the "Nine-Tails" has a history in japan
voltorb is thought to have possible wordplay on electric shock and sphere

and mr. mime

I never liked that bastard.

Also you need to remember than the original names are in japanese, and as such any meaning, word play or the like is lost in translation

filthy casuals

That would be an awesome evolution of tentacruel
User avatar #120 to #96 - xyxoz (06/15/2013) [-]
Actually, the japanese names are just as bad when translated.
Sorry.
