    Tsutarja, Pokabu, Mijumaru localized: The long wait is over!

    The wait is over! After a notice went up on Pokémon.com four days ago, fans have been eagerly awaiting the English names for the three starter Pokémon of Pokémon Black and White Versions. Pokémon.com has just updated that the Grass-type will be known as Snivy, the Fire-type will be known as Tepig, and the Water-type will be known as Oshawott.

    So "Snivy" won in the end. T_T

    "Oshawott"? Really? So "Oshawa" + "Wotter", or something?
    "Tepig" is obvious - "tepid" + "pig".

    Also: FIRST!

    Man, after seeing the name "Isshu" for so long, the name "Unova" sounds all foreign and European to me.
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    I am also liking the name Unova as a region. Can't wait for more information to be released :)

    Retired RNGer. May pick up again in the future.

    Prepare for a week of whining.

    I'm just glad they didn't go with Smugleaf.

    Snivy is ok but Tepig? So... bland.

    Oh well, I'm giving mine a nickname instead.

    Snivy is fine, but Oshawott and Tepig I do not like. And Unova is horrible.

    I have the strange feeling I had when I saw them for the first time. This means I will eventually grow to accept and like the names.

    No complaints here.

    I don't know what to say. I am dumbfounded they altered it so drastically.

    Whao? They even went and renamed Isshu? Why TCPI/Nintendo? Fuck that (sorry for the language) but never before have you changed a region name.

    Oshawott doesn't really retain the cuteness that Mijumaru had.

    This has been soooooooooo far off what I had been expecting. Except for Tepig LOLZ. xD

    Unova eh? Maybe PKMN Co. Just wanted to ram that this is the US LOLZ.

    Tepig = meh, sorta bland, but ok
    Snivy = fitting, but something is just off about it imo
    Oshawott = weird, just weird

    After hearing these Pokemon call out their japanese names in Best Wishes, it'll be very strange to hear them call out their English names in the dub, especially Mijumaru/Oshawott.
