Alola everyone! I thought I'd open a thread about what possible names could be for the new UBs that have been introduced! Given how previous UBs were later classified with more Pokemon sounding names (Pheromosa, Celesteela, etc.) I figured these too, will gain new names. Thoughts? Ideas? As of now, we have:

UB Burst
The Fireworks Pokemon



UB Assembly
The Rampart Pokemon



UB Adhesive
The Posion Pin Pokemon

 
I gotta focus. I'm shifting into pokemon mode.

Burst: Phantaboom (Phantom + Pantaloon + Boom)

Assembly: Wallective (Wall + Collective) or Severall/Zeverall (Several + Wall)

Adhesive: Secretin/Zecretin (Secretion + Cretin)

I wasn’t sure if “Severall” and “Secretin” were too close to actual words, so I offered Z-spelled variants as well.

I like Esserise's Phantaboom suggestion a lot.

Burst: Bombikaze (bomb and kamikaze, probably not kid-friendly enough but it's all I got)

Assembly: conglomereye (conglomerate and eye, essentially just a synonym of Zeb's idea)

Adhesive: Venimp (venom and imp)

I have to say, I actually REALLY like all three of @Zeb 's ideas.

I've only thought of a couple for UB Burst:

Jublosion (jubliee, explosion)
Blastmorous (blast, humorous, also a fun pun of "blasphemous")
Blastoon (cartoon, buffoon, blast)
Wackequin (wacky, harlequin)
Clownozo (clown, Amazo/bozo)

Burst: Kamibozo
Assembly: Block-O
Adhesive: Venorazzi.

I think the Burst one is the best one (combination of Kamikaze and Bozo), as it is easier. But I like Zeb's ideas of names as well (in fact, Zeb's names are better than my names).

But what should be noted is that there is a character limit for names. I am not sure if it still applies (as this was the case in earlier generations), but we need to take that into account.
