    I think Pignite and Emboar are the most unoriginal names. The fandom had called those names months before Nintendo announced the English names. It was disappointing that they didn't try to come up with something a little more unpredictable.
    Call me stupid but ive just researched dugong, didnt have a clue it was an animal. Thought it was quite origional until now so my bad for questioning his answer :)

    It's majorly agreed that Gen I (US and Japan) had terribly boring names.

    ...well, okay, Darkrai's my favorite Pokemon, but when you figure out how his name goes...really? Dark + kurai (Japanese for "dark"). I love you, Darkrai, but why didn't GF try to find a cooler name for you?
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    A bunch of the Japanese games are ridiculously unoriginal:

    Hikozaru (Chimchar): Hi=fire, ko=kid, and zaru, which comes from saru=monkey.
    Ghost (Gastly): Speaks for itself.
    Lizardon (Charizard): Again, speaks for itself.
    Showers, Thunders (Vaporeon, Jolteon): Seriously?
    Porygon: From Polygon. Again, wow.
    Miniryu (Dratini): Mini + Ryuu=dragon
    Usokki (Sudowoodo): Uso=fake, lie. Ki=Tree

    I could go on and on. And that's just what I notice from my very limited Japanese vocabulary XD

    Sounds like you guys covered most of gen 1. I agree with a lot of them, but I do feel I can sort of go easy on them since it was only the first wave of many. Now talking about gen 5 is another story and I'm not being a hater, but after over a decade I would expect better than Eelektrik, Klink & evo's, Roggenrola (I hate that pun -_-), Timburr, Gurdurr, Throh, and Sawk. I mean those are just plain irritating.
    Our goal is to get The Pokemon Company International to return the voice actors from the dub by 4Kids. (seasons 1-8)

    I actually like a lot of those names... Eelektrik sounds cool I think and it makes sense (it's an electric Eel/Lambrey) Klink is a massive improvement over Gear... and I'm meh on the Timburr line but Machop/champ/chok isn't much better

    I know someone would get offended for this, but I'll just wisper it. Ekans and Arbok are probly the most unoriginal.


    I'm a full time Pokemon Breeder! But please visit, I really do appreciate the help.

    Agreeing with others, Muk, Seel, Dewgong, Spheal, Ekans, Arbok, Caterpie, Pignite, Emboar, Throh, and Sawk. If nobody's said them, I'd also like to toss in Beautifly, Silcoon, Pidgey, and Spearow. I mean, come on. They're just stupid puns on the names of regular animals.

    And isn't Articuno's Japanese name "Freezer"? We know it freezes stuff, it's a goddamned Ice type. Also, household appliances.
    Crack some heads for me, darlings. Thank you, and good night.
