    I leave nothing closed.

    "Zangoose" actually sounds like a combination of two names, Zane-Goose. I could think of all sorts of other strange reasons why I eventually, but I don't have the time currently. (brb)

    (Actually, I have the name of my 13 potential kids already planned out. So while I ultimately won't, I may try to convince others to do so.)
    Feel free(r) to discuss Battle Strategy with me--I'll discuss anything really.

    Besides being a strange (retired) battler with a storied, legendary, mythical, exaggerated, and relatively unknown career, I am also an amateur English B&W anime reviewer. (pachiba, you like?)

    And I take hoedowns seriously.

    I'd never do that. That's like punishing your kid for being born.

    No, I wouldn't. I don't want my child to be ridiculed for being named after a pokemon.

    Oh, Arceus no. A pet, maybe, but not a kid.

    I think the only way to give a kid a shittier childhood would be to name them "Richard Simmons" or "OJ Simpson". Or "Lolita". So no, I wouldn't.

    Maybe if I was high.

    I might use it as a nickname... if they wanted me to.

    I won't, but I named a Shiny Two-tone white Chao "Lampent" once.

    I claimed Chandelure, Levitate,Horn Drill and Dusk Stone!

    Lol. No.

    That's just absurd.

    Other video game characters, maybe, but not Pokémon.

    is this thread serious?

    (Nah, there are some Pokémon I think that sound like a name. Roselia, Chansey, Blissey, Eevee, Cherrim, Jynx. But none of those names match my very Latin surname, so just NO.)

    Absolutely not. I'd consider it a form of child abuse, even! (Exactly what the hell do all these celebrities giving retarded names to their children think they're doing? As if being born in the public eye isn't already hard enough...)

    You see, people name their kids Mario, Luigi, and even Ganon because they sound like real human names.

    Pokemon are animal names, though, and don't work so great with people.

    Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha! Oh wait, you were serious. Allow me to laugh even harder. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

    You can't be serious, can you? If I ever named my unlikely son a Pokemon name, he'd be scarred for life.

    Heck no. First because Pokemon names are all terrible puns. Second because they aren't even PROPER names.

    If they were normal, very significant names potentialy outside the game itself, or at least reasonable enough, then alright. I really think there should be no problem being named after a videogame character if people get named after characters from other things. And of course most names that would work ARE real names anyway.

    For instance, something after a pokemon character like say, Drayden, would be fine, given it's actually a name. But a pokemon? That's like naming someone DODONGO.

    Even Mary Sue would be a better choice of a name.
