    Sky Arrow Bridge has become Skyarrow Bridge? THIS. CHANGES. EVERYTHING.

    Driftveil City... hm, okay then... whatever. :/

    "Royal Unova" is a cool name.

    Aww pooh. That concept art has been drifting around since before the games were even released in japan. They had ones for the likes of Tsutarja, Victini, not to mention wide-awake Musharna.

    Still, it's nice to see a clearer version of the Zoroark one at least.

    That's true, this concept art was previously in Famitsu sometime during B/W's development, although this is the first time I know something like this has appeared overseas.

    I saw this article in the magazine, and I have to admit that I was less interested in the concept art than I was at seeing a model of Jill and her Drill Dozer in the GF offices. Now that I know that at least one of these exists, I must have one.

    Awesome. Y'know, they used a Jill & Drill Dozer model in magazine (and TV, with a real-working drill iirc) advertisments when that game was first released. Wonder if it's the same one...

    I really hate the name Skyarrow Bridge. It just takes away the original meaning from the Japanese name...

    Sky Arrow Bridge is a name that inspires valor and glory.
    Skyarrow bridge is a cheap crap name that makes puppies die. :(

    I don't quite understand the need to change Sky Arrow to Skyarrow, I actually didn't realize what it was at first and tried to pronounce it like one word. (I am kind of stupid)

    Skyarrow Bridge? What was wrong with the three-word name T_T
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    I don't get why people get upset over names changing from a fan translation. It's...still the same name.

    Also, I don't see how these are concept art. Sketches, yes, but they look pretty final to me.
