    Oh look, more names that match the leaked list. Why won't you just accept them already Bulbapedia? *sigh*

    Hear hear! It would make ti much easier instead of having to go find other websites. But at least the more information we get, the closer we are getting to Black and White coming out :D I hope more moves and abilities get their names.

    They don't want to take any chances for making a faux-pas like the rivals.
    It's pride, more than anything I bet.
    Of course, I could be wrong.

    This makes me realize how close we are to the release of Black and White.

    Speaking as a Bulbapedia editor, updating a million links is hard enough. If there's a typo on the list, then that makes it a lot more fun.

    Speaking as a moderator of this forum, please do not whine about Bulbapedia here. Instead, discuss the news at hand. Thank you.

    Is this an American ad? I can't seem to come across it on GameFAQs

    More names from the list, I'll discuss them accordingly.

    Purrloin- Purr(ing) + purloin (to steal). Choroneko's name comes from "Choromakasu" (pilfer) + "neko" (cat). Good name.

    Galvantula- Galvanization + Tarantula. Considering that Dentura was "denki (electricity in Japanese)" + "tarantula," the name fits.

    Audino- Audio (earlobes) + I don't know. Tabunne's name could be translated as "maybe," or "earlobes" (mimitabu) so it fits on both accounts.

    Haxorus- Hack (as in chopping or cutting down, like an axe) + Ax + Saurus. It fits as well.

    Cinccino- Basically Minccino (mini + chino cloth) with a "C" added instead of a "M." I feel Chillaccino is a more appropriate name for it, since the reference is more obvious (Chincilla). It's an alright name.

    The English names almost directly translate to their original names, but it will take a while for me to get used to them.

    If you don't like the fact that Bulba only uses factual information and not unofficial websites and their predictions, you don't have to read the news forum or anything. No one is forcing you to. On the contrary I am happy to see more English names since it means closer to the debut date!

    Retired RNGer. May pick up again in the future.

    I believe so. I was talking to a few others and only American residents could see it as far as I could tell. However, there wasn't a large range of people viewing, so for all I know, it may be viewable in Canada too or something.

    Heh. Purrloin makes me think of steak.
    Love Galvantula, though.
