    It's not nice, but it sure is funny as hell.

    And yeah, I used to be one of those kids that knew everything about Pokemon before I joined the wapanese-wanna-be fandom, and those kids are smart-asses.

    I think I'll just call it Pichu.

    >_>

    <_<

    It's not like it is an entirely new species or anything.

    I always called her Spiked-Ear Pichu anyway (as I looked at her ear and it didn't seem even remotely notched to me), so Spiky-Eared isn't too much of a change for me.

    But like it's been pointed out, Notched-Ear was just a fan name. Giza has more than one meaning in Japanese. Notched is one of them, and so is Spiked.

    You may lose your faith in us, but never in yourselves. From here, the fight will be your own.

    Good name change. From what I've heard, her ear isn't even notch-shaped.

    The whole 'notched-ear' thing was really a mistake a fans made I mean. 'Gizamimi' can mean either 'notched' or 'spiky' (as already stated), so when people have to decide which one they meant, they went with 'notched', I mean why? It's clearly a spiky ear.

    Anyway, I never liked the term 'notched-ear', so I like this 'spiky-ear' thing. Although, I'm still not convinced it will have an English name (many of the translated things lose a name when they go to English). So I think it would be more 'a spiky-eared Pichu' rather than 'the Spiky-ear Pichu'.

    IIRC, the name isn't ever used in the actual movie anyway. Only in the promotional material and the TV series' current ending theme.

    The name change wasn't really required. Although American youth aren't that smart, they probably changed the name to something that they'd understand.

    There was no name change; "Notched-ear" was nothing more than the popular fan-translation of Gizamimi--both Spiky and Notched are workable translations of it. PCI has apparently just gone with Spiky.

    For the last time, the name wasn't changed. And what's all this talk about 'notched' being a complex word. If you think that's a complex word, then well...

    Edit: late post. :P

    I had no idea what Notched meant before I saw the Notched-ear Pichu. True my first language isn't English but not all of us are born American you know-.- (and before you ask: the games aren't even translated to my language so I get the English language versions anyway)

    So... now it's SEP? XD
    I actually like Spiky more, though I'll have to get used to it after all that time of reading "notched" everywhere
    As was already said - I'm pretty sure the name is never mention in the movie or in games so it really doesn't matter much... they also won't dub the ED song so the only thing that will use "Spiky Ear Pichu" is advertisements for the movie/games

    Obviously I wasn't referring to people who's first language isn't English.
