    There's a number of names I like this time. Both of Gaijin's are pretty good. I like Rosestorm's "Totenmosa" and Sarahvait's "Roanoke." Sabin's are. . . interesting. XD

    And of course, I have more revealed English names thanks to Bulbapedia:

    Yorterri is now Lilipup
    Miruhog is Watchog
    Basslao is Basculin
    Shikijika is Deerling

    Swanna is keeping its name.
    Victini is keeping its name

    I kind of assumed that all the legendaries would keep their names more or less intact. The only ones that ever had major changes were the bird trio in the original game, after all.

    And darn if I didn't think of Watchog a few weeks back

    Two of the Pixie trio in the last generation were fairly different though. Emrit became "Mesprit" and Agnome became "Azelf." Granted these aren't very big name changes, but they are noticably different.

    Oh, hadn't thought about those... Honestly I don't know the English names for most of the 4th-gen Pokemon anyway...

    I always thought that these two would keep their Japanese names. Maricachi is understandable in English too. Symbolla/Symboller makes sense in English too. Here are some of the only possible ones I can think of:

    MARIKACHI --> Cactiachi, Cactamba
    SHINBORAA --> Glyflap, Hierowing
