Note: The following blog is satirical in nature.

Bulbasaur:
How do I pronounce this Bull Ba Sore? Bal Base Or? The name loses all meaning because there is no guide on which accent to use when pronouncing the name.

Swinub:

Swinnub

NUB

lolololololol Nubnubnubnubnubnubnub Way to be offensive to noobies, and amputees, Nintendo. :( [Repeat this subject about 50 times throughout thread]

Gyarados, Sableye:
No, just no.

Umbreon, Zapdos, Articuno, Molteres, Flareon:
The Japanese names were already plain English, why did Nintendo have to complicate things and change them? Makes no sense.

Buizel:
Boy-sel? Bui-zel? Why do they have to spell it and pronounce it the way the yanks do! Damn yanks ruin everything good in the world! I wish there was no America, then the would would be so damn perfect! What? I'm way off topic with my inflammatory tirade that is more suited to a political debate thread than a thread about Pokémon names? Nah!

Dusknoir:
Dusk what? No-ear? No-err?

Hippopotas, Girafarig:
Needlessly complicated name!

Spheal:
We already have Seel, Nintendo! Why make a make that sounds like an old Pokémon's name! Not like they are both based on the same animal or anything.

Geodude:
Hurr, Geode + Dude, har har, Nintendo. There is no place for silly puns in Pokémon!

Abra
A bra. I am disappoint in your immature minds, Nintendo.

Gligar: Glee, Gly, Gleh? No clue on what they were going for that name for this gliding scorpion Pokémon. Would be easier to understand if they left the Japanese spelling.

Chingling: An onomatopoeia for the sound a chime/bell makes... I have a sound for you, Nintendo. Boo!

Jigglypuff, Wigglytuff *insert mandatory death threats to the localization team*

Know what the best part is? We get to do this all over again in about four and a half years.

    BUT BUT BUT THOSE ARE THE OLD NAMES! WE'RE NOT ALLOWED TO BUTTHURT ABOUT OLD NAMES! AND THE NEW NAMES SUCK! THEY SUCK BECAUSE THEY'RE NEW!

    On a more serious note, I'm actually pretty suspicious of the new names because of (among other things) Pignite and Emboar.
