    Yeah, Gaijin totally wins this round. Those are awesome names.

    Now watch the legit names be much less awesome.

    I agree, great names. I keep coming up with things like hermidoor and crabmansion. I bet the real names will be better than mine, but not likely better than gaijin's.

    I've never had interest in Pokemon, but I love crabs and hermit crabs. These are the coolest looking Pokemon I've ever seen and might just cause me to buy a copy of Pokemon Black/White.

    I most certainly have to agree that Gaijin suggested the best names. Here's hoping someone over at NoA was thinking along the same lines. . .

    Man, and here I was wishing I'd been able to come up with something better than Hermite... I liked Ocelot's Reclurock, personally.

    Do they still have the 10 character limit on the Western Pokémon names?

    I believe so. And a five character limit on the Japanese names.

    I wonder if it's a stylistic choice for that at this point, because you'd think they'd have enough memory and screen space by now to fix "Feraligatr".

    ^ And "Victreebel"

    Anyway, UK's Official Nintendo Magazine has revealed the names of three more Pokémon, in case you didn't know and plan on using either of these three:

    Doryuzu is Excadrill

    Mamanbou is Alomomola

    Kurumiru is Sewaddle.

    Hm... there go two possibilities I was considering.

    Not the ones I'd planned on using next, though
