    Default How many Pokémon have you memorized?

    How many Pokémon have you memorized the names of? If you can say or write the name correctly (not necessarily both, minor spelling errors OK if writing), then you have memorized it. Order does NOT matter. I have currently memorized all 493 in order.

    Hmm... The names of the pokes? Most people are able to memorize all of them sooner or later either from watching the anime or playing the games. However, knowing all the names in the correct numerical order is very different...
    Since everyone these days has one of these, I'm going to put mine too...



    On a funny note, I made this personality test on 3 different ocasions and the pokemon I got every single time was Togetic so this can't be very wrong...

    I think I've done the first 151 when it first started. After that I tend to forget the order, but can say a lot of them.

    Knowing all the Pokemon IN ORDER would be too geeky, and too addict

    I know all of them. Not only that, but I know both the English and Japanese names for each one (well, there might be a few English names for the 4th generation I still haven't gotten perfectly down yet, though I could still recognize them if someone else brought them up).

    I think I know all their katakana spellings as well, which probably doesn't seem that complicated when you're familiar with their Japanese names and know Japanese kana anyway (unlike English, there aren't really any complex rules on how to pronounce Japanese writing, and the fact that every Pokemon's name is written in just one writing style further simplifies it), but there are a few bumps here and there. Like "Pichu" extends the end with a ー chouonpu whilst Pikachu and Raichu extend with ウ "u", whether vowel extensions in general use a chouonpu or not, "Buby" ends with a ィ small "i", "Showers" ends with a ズ "zu" whilst "Thunders" ends with a ス "su" (any native English-speaker will more than likely associate the romanized names before anything else), etc.

    why say that? You are aware that all you're really doing is just adding another hundred to a number you've already well memorized over the years, aren't you? So the 4th generation should be no different from the previous two generations (or the first 151 for that matter). Besides, this generation has about twenty less than the previous one.

    All of them. English only. No particular order.

    Is Gallade's Japanese name Erlade or Eureido?

    I could probably remember them all in English and most of the fourth-gen Pokémon in Japanese, given the images. A few tend to slip my mind, though. Voted 401-450.

    I know all the names in Japanese and English, but sometimes I might forget a name but it'll soon pop up again. I know the meaning of many of the Japanese names, but not all of them. I remember some of the 2nd gen English names were hard to remember, like Typhlosion, I thought Bakufuun much easier to remember and use. The 4th gen's names I learned the Japanese first, but I think I know all the English ones as well. As Yamato-san said, some spellings can be difficult, but it's easier to spell them in kana. Some people say I mispell some names in romaji, but I always think of the meaning of the name, then spell it as that or those word(s) the name consists of. I don't spell Plusle "Prasle" :)

    I know the Japanese names of the vast majority of them, but I still have to look up the English names for a lot of them.

    I... probably suck at names more than anyone else alive (anyone who's known me for a few months can tell you that), but if you were to show me pictures of all the Pok&#233;mon, I could provide all the English names. Although sometimes I do get a few mixed up (Rhyhorn/Rhydon, Sealeo/Walrein, etc.).

    No way in hell could I ever name them all in order. I probably couldn't recall all 493 off the top of my head, either.
