    Default Pokemon names based on one single word

    There are a lot of names based on one single word. Some I think are good names, but some are boring since it's just one word. What do you think of these names.
    Examples are:
    Seel
    Gloom
    Raikou (lightning in Japanese)
    Golem
    Lizardo
    Cocoon

    Are these names a lack of ideas? I don't think Fire, Freezer and Thunder are, since they kind of shows what the birds represent, and simple names doesn't have to be bad. And I like that these 3 names have the same ending.

    But Cocoon is very boring. What do you think of them?

    well Kukuna/Metapod (dont know which poke cocoon is) have never realy been that exiting.

    Furret and Seel suck as names.

    Kakuna sounds better than Cocoon, but prefer Ootachi and Pauwau better than Furret and Seel. Golem is the worst Pokemon name ever, since a lot of other games have used it already.

    Well, in defense, most Japanese kids would probably find simple English "cool sounding", in the same way we find Yanma (dragonfly) and Raikou (lighting) cool.

    Raikou is the same in Japanese and Yanma is Yanyanma in Japanese. I don't know why NoA wanted to remove "yan" from the name, making it a simple word, anyway.

    And yes, electrode is another one-word-name . . .

    I always thought it was a combination of dew and "gon" from dragon. But Dugong i more likely. I like it how they put the word dew in it.

    Magneton, but it's pretty good. Slowpoke is, duh, but I like that one too. And Lickilicky, for that matter. I also guess Muk, Grimer, Koffing, Wheezing, and Cherrim are, too.

    And then you have Ekans and Arbok, Eevee, Jirachi, Girafarig, Scyther, Jynx, Deoxys, Graveler, Chansey/Lucky...yeah, I'm going through my folder.


    MAYBE Meowth and Persian, provided the "mouth" and "purr" puns were unintentional.

    Furret is based off two words, fur and ferret.

    Poligon from the word polygon. Yes, I know it's Porygon in English, with a hard "r" replacing the "l" of polygon, but it really should be prenounced closer to the actual word, so does it count?
