I agree that some of the Japanese Pokemon names do sound cooler, but not Lycanroc/Lugarugan. Lycanroc is a great combination of a wolf-related word and what type it is. I suppose Lugarugan would make more sense if I knew Japanese, but it just sounds so goofy to me. Iwanko sounds cool, but like more of an individual name than a general name. This is totally random but you've posted after me in the above avatar thread several times and that's just been my thoughts.
Regarding Contests in AG, I don't think they were boring, although of course visually the appeals and stuff like that impoved into DP. Most of them still had good battles besides a few (like the ones with skitty/dusclops and eeeve/brock being the worst ones) and they always had funny character interaction between May and her rivals, not just her main two, but all those one-shot coordinators she met in Hoenn.
