Bel renamed!? I think it should be Cheren who needs a new name!
 
Re: More Black and White English names revealed: More English names revealed

I like Braviary. Good name, combination of Brave and Aviary?
 
Re: More Black and White English names revealed: More English names revealed

We already knew about Black City and White Forest a while ago.

Don't like Bianca, Belle was a perfectly fine name. But at least they kept Cheren.
 
Re: More Black and White English names revealed: More English names revealed

Why did they rename Bel while CHEREN keeps his name?
 
Re: More Black and White English names revealed: More English names revealed

I dunno. But At least it keeps the theme naming.
 
Re: More Black and White English names revealed: More English names revealed

Only the character names are new. The pokemon name list leaked can be confirmed now too.
 
Re: More Black and White English names revealed: More English names revealed

Had to look up what Fennel was referring to since the only thing that came to mind was Funnel Cake.

I'm ok with all the names so far, but I'm still confused over Belle's name change. Seems a bit unnecessary since Belle is already an english name.
 
Re: More Black and White English names revealed: More English names revealed

Aww... I liked Wargle. :( It would have been fine as an English name.

The fact that Belle's name changed and not Cheren is a bit of a surprise. I wonder what was going on in the process of localizing these characters.
 
Re: More Black and White English names revealed: More English names revealed

But the anime already has a person named Bianca, remember?! What's gonna happen to the fanfictions?

Wonder what thy're going to name Touko? I thought she'd be named Bianca. And She was a one-shot movie character right? so Belle would be known beter then her.

Like the names though.. and what is this anout a name leak?

It happens. There're also two Flints (Brock's Dad, and the redhead from Sinnoh). One fanfic I read (I was bored) had both.

And someone beat me to the Trope page edit. Aww.

The names are neat. I really like Axew (what was Kibago) and Braviary (was Wargle).

Bel had her named change! CHEREN'S THE ONE THAT NEEDED A NEW NAME! Cheren to Americans is a pretty girly name BUT OK NOA!
 
Re: More Black and White English names revealed: More English names revealed

Oh, god, Fennel, what a horrible name.

*chokes*

it's pretty atrocious...

He's already very androgynous to begin with...

Anyway, I thought Bianca would be the perfect english name for Bel since it means "White" in Italian anyway.
 
Re: More Black and White English names revealed: More English names revealed

I never thought Cheren was girly.

And Bel was kept in a lot of places just not English speaking places.
 
Re: More Black and White English names revealed: More English names revealed

Fennel sounds like "Fen" and "Kennel" put together.

It also sounds like "Funnel".
 
Re: More Black and White English names revealed: More English names revealed

Cofagrigus is going to be a bit of a corker to decipher. I can see the "sarcophagus" donation; I just can't figure out the "rig" (or should it be "gri"...?). As in rigor mortis?

Vivian's a sexy name for Makomo

I've been waiting for this article!!
 
Re: More Black and White English names revealed: Names of characters, Pokémon, more r

Why did Bel's name get changed to Bianca? Bel is a normal western name anyway. Heck, her name is relatively the same in German, Italian and Spanish.
