    Up until a few months ago, I thought it was "Lickilili". Then I heard the English name and thought the same thing. Other ones I hate are Probopass, Prinplup, Grotle and Zubat.

    But I like the name Nincada. It's just fun to say.

    Sounds pretty unoriginal.

    Anyway:

    Best: Blaziken, Empoleon, Gallade, Porygon-Z

    Worst: Gastrodon

    Spiritomb. Can you be any more subtle? Same with Monferno.

    I like Feraligatr since removing the O makes it look more unique so I purposely pronounce it without the O even though it sounds pretty similar anyway.

    I also like Gallade if I intentionally mispronounce it Ga-lad instead of Ga-layd. :P

    Hate the name Qwilfish because people keep spelling it wrong. No, not because I spell it wrong, because other people spell it wrong. >>

    Anyone else love the Porygon line's naming? I just wish they had gone with Porygon 3 instead of Porygon Z. Obviously there was hardly any creative thinking in the whole process, but I still enjoy it.

    Names I like: Scyther, Vibrava, Tauros, Xatu
    Names I dislike: Hoppip, Jumpluff, Piplup, Pupitar

    I like the names Vaporeon, Skarmory and Altaria. I'll think of more, and names I don't like later.

    I really love the eeveelutions.

    (Background infomation: I am a Hong Konger who speak Chinese, and I am in secondary 3(aged 14))

    I can say those names (in english) out loud and pretend them to be chemical elements without anyone noticing those are Pokémon names. lol.

    ---------------

    Hate.... how about Seel? I misread it as "seal" everytime I see it...

    I am the only person who can pronounce every pokemon name correctly...? I mean, I cringe when people around me say them wrong, although the time I did flip out was when it was TCG player who couldn't pronounce anything. I swear, he's worse than the British and pronouncing foreign car names correctly.

    Also, I pretty much like every pokemon and their names. I look at the root it came from, and I like seeing how the internationalization team takes the japanese word's roots and converts them over to other languages... or when the scrap the name completely. I mean, seriously. Sparker? Flamer? Electric Mouse? Those are horrible names.

    Anyways, the one name that irks me is Mr. Mime. I mean, yeah, I understand why they called him that, but....
