    Some guy on DeviantArt made Zapbra a long time ago. (In 2008, to be exact. Gen.5 wasn't even announced back then.)
    The word "quadragonal" is the only word with "dragon" in it where "dragon" is not a root word. That makes it awesome.

    My guesses:

    Tsutarja: Leafidian/Leaphidian
    Pokabu: Pignite
    Mijumaru: Wotter?
    Zorua: Zorox/Zorrox
    Chiramii: ???
    Giaru: Torcog?
    Hihidaruma: Flaboon
    Mamepato: Diligeon
    Meguroko: Gaterrain
    Munna: Dreamite
    Shimama: Zapra/Zapbra
    I only came up with one guess =P
    It was to name Tsutarja, Sinaleaf. It's a corruption of the word sinister+leaf. Also if you take the "i" out of the name, it's Snaleaf which looks like snake+leaf.

    How do you know that Zorua will be keeping its name? Zoroark.com redirects to pokemon.com, but zorua.com redirects to something in Japanese which, as far as I can tell, isn't Pokémon-related. Or have they said somewhere that Zorua will keep its name?

    These mean NOTHING.

    This is what PokéPark Wii's site used to look like.

    Do you really think TPCi will use Tsutarja, Mijumaru, or Pokabu?

    Zorro is spanish for fox. And if Zoroark keeps its name, then I don't see why Zorua wouldn't.

    for the last time, their names will not change to zoloark. Zorro is spanish for fox. Zolo is... nothing for nothing.

    Can someone tell me what the heck Munna is supposed to be before I make my guess? BTW Hihidaruma is going to become or is (cannot see resemblance) a Japanese daruma doll. Thats my guess. Daruma will probably be present in it's name

    I don't think they'll keep the Daruma part. In fact, I don't know if I believe the Daruma refers to the doll either...I think it's from "hidaruma" which means body on fire while the first "Hi" might refer to Hibagon, Japanese big foot.

    In that case, I vote to name it Ashsquatch.

    For Mamepato, I like Smigeon. Y'know, like smidgen.

    For Gear, I hope they use a name that refers to its dual-nature. I kind of like Cogrades....y'know, like Cog + Comrades? The pun sounds better than it looks, however. People would probably think it was "cog-grades".

    For Chillami (yes, I think the first part is supposed to be romantized to this to keep the "chilla" part. Saw this romantization on #PM and I like it), I think they could keep it somewhat close...maybe Chillamigo, as in "Chinchilla" and "amigo", since Chinchilla are from Peru. You know, I wonder if the "ami" part is supposed to be from "amigo" originally?

    Reshiram and Zekrom are already confirmed to be the english names. Zoroark too I think.

    My newest pet peeve is when people make puns on 'water' and 'otter' for Mijumaru's english name. I'm pretty sure that's only really a pun with an American accent. With my accent, for example, it only sounds like 'What-er'. XD

    But I guess it's time to think of some terribly lame puns! :D
