Pokemon USA/ International never had any creativity.So we go from notchy to spiky. Has pokemon lost all creativity?
I'm not complaining, I've come to only use the JP names, so I would be calling her Giza-Mimi Pichu regardless of what she was renamed as.I'm all against pointless renames. But this doesn't fit into that category at all.
"Notch-Eared Pichu" was just a fan translation of Giza-Mimi Pichuu. Repeat after me: A FAN TRANSLATION. It wasn't any more "correct" than "Jagged-Eared Pichu" or "Corrugated-Eared Pichu" or, even, "Spiky-Eared Pichu."
The fact that people are complaining about this is...well, it's not SURPRISING. Just annoying.
I doubt it, "Gizamimi" is much longer than "Notched", "Jagged", and "Spiky".Then again, it could just be for lip-synch purposes, like with Lorel...er, "Prima".
"American Pokémon is Hardcore".Pokemon USA/ International never had any creativity.
...Not that renaming Made-up Japanese nouns requires alot of it.

Still, I do have to agree that "spiky-eared" is a little weak, "Spike" is a bit overused in the US
Because Notched and Spiky mean the exact same thing?Umm, why change the name from "Notched Ear" to Spiky ear? Most of us knew it as notched ear, going to take a bit of getting used to, but seriouslty guys, get creative please!
If they mean the same thing, why change it at all then? Its the torn/distortion world thing all over again, but I'll stick to the Japanese name, its the one I like better.Because Notched and Spiky mean the exact same thing?
As Dogasu put it, it's not officially a name change. Giza-Mimi Pichu can mean either notched-eared or spiky-eared. NOA just chose not to go with the fan term that's been floating around.Umm, why change the name from "Notched Ear" to Spiky ear?

If the place holder dates are April 1st then expect it in April.Heh, I'm not the only one who does that?
I'll still be calling her "Gizamimi Pichu"
I've pretty much stopped keeping with the english names and fandom outside of Bulbapedia; She's Gizamimi Pichu to me.
Also, I'm surprised they're startiing to reveal all of this stuff so early.
I wonder if we'll see Movie 12 by the end of the year, and HGSS before March?
Oh, now I wish they had named it that instead. XD But yeah, Spiky's good.I had Spiked Ear, but Spiky's fine.
Because in Japan they like to tease the west with bullshit like how they did. I think. Either way something this subtle should have been done.Why couldn't they reveal it like this in Japan
Wrong.Oh, now I wish they had named it that instead. XD But yeah, Spiky's good.
I've always hated "Notched-eared" because its ear's not even really notched! So glad to have a widely-used name that actually makes some sense.
I see your definition of "notch" and raise you the definition of "cut". ;P
