    The list probably is real.

    Anyway, two of these names are terrible. Excadrill sounds nice, though. :3

    I don't understand where the name 'Sewaddle' comes from. Where's the pun in that?

    Yeah, further confirmation is nice, I suppose, but most people believed the list anyway.

    I really wish they hadn't changed Drill Liner. Drill Run just doesn't sound as awesome.

    I assume the other names on the list are also right.

    Well, I guess that confirms that list's content as true. Damn it.

    I'm not liking the english names this time around. >:

    Sew + Swaddle.

    Drill Run? Drill Liner does seem odd to me, but they could've altered it to Line Drill. As it is now, it's not making sense. Does the Pokémon run up to the target with a drill or something? 0_o

    This pretty much confirms the leaked list of english names then. No further questions on that problem then yes?

    Drill Liner is a much better name, has the TTGL feel to it.

    Excadrill? I liked Doryuuzu better. I guess I'll get used to it come March or April.

    So the list is confirmed. I actually like some of them alot, they were more creative. I hope they keep up this level of creativity for future games

    I like the Klink line much better than the Japanese names.
    I mean, klink, klang and klinklang have a much better metal 'ring' than gearu, gigigearu and gigigigigeargiu

    The title is misleading! D8 Here I was hoping to see a full list, and it's not even 10 names! Why not change the title to "UK magazine reveals literally 5 new names" or something! OTL
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    Yeah, this just makes it even more obvious. The list is real.

    Yay for Excadrill. That name's one of my favorite.
    lol I got bored.
