The list probably is real.

Anyway, two of these names are terrible. Excadrill sounds nice, though. :3

I don't understand where the name 'Sewaddle' comes from. Where's the pun in that?

Yeah, further confirmation is nice, I suppose, but most people believed the list anyway.

I really wish they hadn't changed Drill Liner. Drill Run just doesn't sound as awesome.

I assume the other names on the list are also right.

Well, I guess that confirms that list's content as true. Damn it.

I'm not liking the english names this time around. >:

Sew + Swaddle.

Drill Run? Drill Liner does seem odd to me, but they could've altered it to Line Drill. As it is now, it's not making sense. Does the Pokémon run up to the target with a drill or something? 0_o

This pretty much confirms the leaked list of english names then. No further questions on that problem then yes?

Drill Liner is a much better name, has the TTGL feel to it.

Excadrill? I liked Doryuuzu better. I guess I'll get used to it come March or April.

Re: Official Nintendo Magazine reveals new English names: More names from the unconfi

So the list is confirmed. I actually like some of them alot, they were more creative. I hope they keep up this level of creativity for future games

I like the Klink line much better than the Japanese names.
I mean, klink, klang and klinklang have a much better metal 'ring' than gearu, gigigearu and gigigigigeargiu

Re: Official Nintendo Magazine reveals new English names: More names from the unconfi

The title is misleading! D8 Here I was hoping to see a full list, and it's not even 10 names! Why not change the title to "UK magazine reveals literally 5 new names" or something! OTL

Yay for Excadrill. That name's one of my favorite.

That's because that information was made available earlier. But hey, points for trying. =)

Struggle Bug made me smile, seeing how it sounds like "snuggle bug".
