Ok, let me try to weigh the circumstances here. For one, the list was revealed to us before IGN put up that article. True, there is still a possibility someone knew of the imminent name reveal and crafted an entire list to complement it. I might go along that could have been a colossal coincidence. (although since the list was shown to us first, I went along with it because the names matched so well and I assumed there was no way the two incidences could be related) Now, the list has the ability to predict the future. No one could randomly guess that well, especially knowing what the fan guesses tend to be. Be that as it may, nothing is truly confirmed until all the names are shown to us. For me, it had a good chance of being real once the IGN article matched. Now, it has 99% chance of being real since it predicted the future. For the sake of the pedia, though, it's still best not to use the names from the list and only change the entries that are officially announced. As for convincing people, I have found that trying to change people's minds is folly. If they can't be convinced, then it is not worth it to argue. I will say that it is practically useless to deny anything this precise, although the question still arises how in the world this entire list got leaked. Somebody's head rolled, I'm sure.
Step into the Fairy circle
Alomomola sounds like "Alohomora"...
(EDIT: Oh wait... which "mo" do you put the stress on?)
The only other option was that someone only fake some of the names, I guess, of the most unfamous Pokemon of the 5th gen.
In my opinion, it's extremely unlikely that that's what happened, but if it did happen, that's be awesome, imo.
But yeah, I say real. You'd think someone official would definitely go out and say otherwise now, but it hasn't happened.
Not that you need my approval, but I think that's a good idea.However, due to the nature of the beast they will not be treated as official until made known officially.

Seasons =/= Regions
I compromised and only looked at the ones I cared about most... =PAh well. *continues memorizing English names.*
Which was only a handful. And there were some names i looked at and forgot.
Sewaddle looks like a Pokemon whose name sounds like it should start with "ch", imo... Oh well... it doesn't look like a "Kurumiru" to me eiher. But I'm not Japanese, so...
Seasons =/= Regions
Axew line as well as the names of the starters, because those are some of my favorites.
And in response to Sewaddle, my only issue is that it doesn't flow off the tongue as well as it's supposed to. They could've opted for something smoother.
But yeah, while the list isn't TECHNICALLY OFFICIALLY "confirmed", for all purposes it may as well have been. But as the expression goes "it ain't official till it's official" (or is that how the expression goes? I forget :/...)
OH! I just realized that Scrafty's name reminds me of the song "She's Crafty" by The Beastie Boys, and Scrafty's Dark type is perfectly fitting lol
I'm still not 100% convinced :V
I'm still waiting to see a screenshot using "Pignite"
Or at least, 15-20 names on the list confirmed.
Although it would totally blow my mind now if they revealed names that weren't from the "leaked" list.
Pignite, because that's the most suspicious to me.
I highly doubt the list is even fake, mostly because all the names match so far. I highly doubt they would make a bunch of real names and then make everything else fake, because thats illogical.
