    Gigalith was okay. But Juniper? Eh, you take what you get. Now I'm scared about what they're going to name Sazandra ._.

    Hey, Big Pecks is a pretty good pun for "Hatomune". "Pecks" means "chest muscles".

    Also, "Hatomune" is the name of a disease known as Pectus Carinatum where the breastbone and ribs protrude abnormally from the chest.
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    lol, Moxie? That's a new one. I expected something like Boast (Swagger is taken, and such). It sounds funny, though.

    Sheer Force is cool too. The rest are alright.
    lol I got bored.

    I'm really surprised they didn't keep Gear, it's simple enough you figure they would have.

    Also, "Klink". It sounds more like "Kink" than anything else.

    I can just imagine it now - "Mmm - tighten my bonds with your gears, Klinky boy. *with clenched teeth* Ooh! That's good."

    I imagine, given that this is the case, that they're going to do something similar to the Japanese and do "Kiklink" and "Kikliklink."

    Sandile sounds like Sandal.
    Some names are totally unexpected... Klink ? Blitzle ?? Now I'm sure they'll miss "Zebolt" for Zebraika.
    Guess we'll get used to those names as time goes by...

    I rather the Japanese names in general. None of those English names appeal to me at all

    I agree that Gear should have stayed like that and Sandile?

    I honestly think they are all pretty good. and the names are starting to stick already. Which is great.
