    Default English VS German BW names

    It should be quite obvious which set of localized starter Pokemon names is the superior one (hint: starts with G, ends with erman, rhymes with Herman and is German) but let's do one of them thar polls anyhow.
    So.

    Germany got way better names in my opinion. Especially in the case of Ottaro.

    The only thing I like better there is Floink, I don't really see how any of the other names are better.

    Though that's still one more than English names since I don't care for any of them.

    Floink, motherfloinkers.

    So, German all the way. They got the best of the localized names in my opinion.
    Ultimately, I serve only one master... pure logic.

    Ottaro is what Miju should have gotten for an English name. You lucky Deutschlanders, you.

    The only one I like in the German names is Floink. The only one I don't like in the American names is Tepig. Since I like more of America's names and their creativity, as well as their uniqueness, America wins on my list.
