    Default Secrets in Pokemon's design.

    Has anybody know any hidden things in Pokemon's names and designs. For me I only know one really cool thing and that is that SAWS in Sawsbuck stands for Summer, Autumn, Winter and Spring. So if you know any cool things about Pokemons designs or name post them bellow!

    That could go on forever though, since most of the English names are word play.

    Squirtle = Squirt + Turtle

    - Emboar has a beard
    - The red dot on Chingling's mouth is not its eyes
    - Hydreigon has a bit of a mechanical detail in its design
    - The elemental monkeys are based off of the See No Evil, Hear No Evil, and Speak No Evil
    - The Clefairy line looks like Lucy from Peanuts
    - Venemoth looks much similar to Caterpie while Butterfree looks much similar to Venonat
    - Conkeldurr, Sawk, and Throh look like Muppets on steroids
    - Mewtwo is a cross between Freiza and Giygas
    - Excadrill is actually smaller what he looks in his sprite form

    Yep, and Muk is something else backwards. It was originally spelled Muc. :D

    Deino, Zweilous, and Hydreigon are named after one, two, and three in German.

    Empoleon is named after Napoleon, and it has a 'collar' on its body, resembling a collar on a shirt. And the trident on its face refers to Poseidon.

    Moving into human characters, Cynthia's name references her home region (Cynthia, Sinnoh), and it's the same in the Japanese versions (Shirona, Shinou)

    I could go on forever.

    ...I don't get it. What about it spelled backwards? :/

    Anyway, I can't really think of anything that hasn't already been mentioned.
