Big Pecks... urgh. Muscular Mamepato will now be on my mind.

I quite like Blitzle. The others will need time.

Gigalith was okay. But Juniper? Eh, you take what you get. Now I'm scared about what they're going to name Sazandra ._.

Big Pecks... urgh. Muscular Mamepato will now be on my mind.
Hey, Big Pecks is a pretty good pun for "Hatomune". "Pecks" means "chest muscles".

Also, "Hatomune" is the name of a disease known as Pectus Carinatum where the breastbone and ribs protrude abnormally from the chest.

I'm really surprised they didn't keep Gear, it's simple enough you figure they would have.

Also, "Klink". It sounds more like "Kink" than anything else.

I can just imagine it now - "Mmm - tighten my bonds with your gears, Klinky boy. *with clenched teeth* Ooh! That's good."

I imagine, given that this is the case, that they're going to do something similar to the Japanese and do "Kiklink" and "Kikliklink."

Sandile sounds like Sandal.
Some names are totally unexpected... Klink ? Blitzle ?? Now I'm sure they'll miss "Zebolt" for Zebraika.
Guess we'll get used to those names as time goes by...

I rather the Japanese names in general. None of those English names appeal to me at all

I agree that Gear should have stayed like that and Sandile?

My only problem with any of these is that Darmanitan reminds me of Dalmatian.

My problem is that Blitzle reminds me of the Blitz. Along with muscular Mamepato, a Shimama causing havoc over England isn't gonna get out of my head for a while.

I might just draw art of it though, attacking the queen.

The names are mostly good. They're not my favorites but they're not total disapointments. I can get used to the Pokemon's names but Castellia will always be Hiun City to me.

Klink is as simple as Gear, so it's really nice. I am guessing that the evolutions will have the same build-up names as the Japanese names for the evolutions, so I can see some names like Kliklink and Klinkklink. Minccino sounds a little complicated for a chinchilla-based Pokemon, but I will get used to it.

It's amazing that unlike the Japanese info reveal, Gigalith is one of the revealed Pokemon in addition to the others.

Thanks for reading.

*steals Sandile name* (Teh Pig)

Anyway, these names aren't that bad to me. I like them :)
