    Well I recently found out the english name is Unova, but I figured that Isshu was a better name so what your opinion.

    The German "Einall" just because...I'm so mature xD

    Seriously though...I like Unova's name better than all the others. OshaWOTT's the isshu with the name change that people get so hung up about?

    Depending on the name origin; if it's from "unum" and "nova" then it would be "Oon-ova", if it's from "United" as in United States, then "Youn-Ova". Personally, I pronounce it the latter way, easier to roll off the tongue.

    Well to me it seems odd pronouncing the nama Unova correctly and the nova in the word reminds me to much of CoD BO

    The only thing I speak besides English is German, and Einall seems really obvious. Unova is my favorite, I don't much care for Isshu either.

    Oh wow, I actually did not see that at all. Yeah, in German "ei" is pronounced like a long I, not a long A as in Japanese. So that really doesn't work, sorry to burst your bubble. :P

    Isshu, although that may be because it's the one I'm used to. This may be a random association, but Unova sounds really suitable for Black's more developed look, and Isshu reminds me of White's more... wildernessy... look.

    Yay, Poll. I had wondered why there wasn't one, guess now I know.

    I don't get why they changed it in the first place, it has never happened before. Not only that but it has a different name in each language.

    Did the localisation people have a big argument and just came up with their own names to be different or something?

    No. Since Isshu had a meaning behind it, they decided to keep it by translating the meaning into other languages.
