Marlon is from Marlin, a type of swordfish.
I think "Marlon Brando"... They must be going for some theme naming after Roxie and the movie studio.
Also, Mar means sea in a bunch of languages like portuguese.
I like the name "Marlon" for Shizui. It fits a guy who is seen swimming more than walking in the game. I feel like "Achroma" shouldn't have been changed, but I'm too apathetic about the guy to really get worked up about his name; Corless for him is...alright.
Pokestar Studios is much better than Pokewood, imo.
Marlon isn't too bad, but I don't know, maybe I'm too used to Shizui or something but the name doesn't really fit him that well imo. I liked Sean and Shayne.

I like Marlon, Roxie is okay, and I dislike Corless. PokeStar Studios isn't a bad name for PokeWood.
I don't know, Professor Corless, just has a very badass ring to it, and it's just as good as Achroma.
I just realized something. While I know you're probably sick of my fanboying over Alder, I question why he went to Iris for the Champion position. Why not Marshal, his disciple? Marshal was an Elite 4 member instead of just a gym leader.
Still the Unova Champion in my book.
Iris, on the other hand, probably battled Alder for the first time and won due to being a prodigy like the player characters.
As far as Iris becoming Champion, I think it's fine. To those who say she was just a GL and might not be strong enough, she got 2 frikin years to train. She could've easily got stronger and beat the whole league if she trained for almost 2 years.
