Bel renamed!? I think it should be Cheren who needs a new name!

I like Braviary. Good name, combination of Brave and Aviary?

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.

Why did they rename Bel while CHEREN keeps his name?

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.

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.

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).

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.

I never thought Cheren was girly.

And Bel was kept in a lot of places just not English speaking places.

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

It also sounds like "Funnel".

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?

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.
