    worst game ever
    When the Devil is too busy
    And Death's a bit too much
    They call on me by name you see,
    For my special touch.

    Sheesh you are an idiot. Nearly all of those are wrong.

    Bulbasaur doesn't come from lightbulb. It's from the bulb of a flower before it blooms. A LIGHTBULB? You think that bulbasaurs a...freaky gloworm or something?

    Charmander. It's from 'Char' and 'mander'. not 'char', 'man', 'der'. Char means 'to be burnt', charmander has no relation to charcoal. It's NOT a torkoal. 'Mander' comes from 'salamander', which was a mystical fire breathing dragon. Charmander is not related to 'MAN' as humans, and 'der' from deranged is the worse nonsense I've ever heard.

    The absolute worst is charizard. 'Char', as I said, means 'being burnt'. It comes from 'char' and 'lizard', namely, the two words joined together. 'Ardvark' is the worst shit I've ever heard. Heck, what's its relation to charizard?

    Unown, you. suck.

    Pokemon names also come from Japanese words. e.g. Ho-oh translated is Pheonix

    Unown5 I just have one question. You say that pokemon names come from words, now correct me if I'm wrong, but I've never heard of the word riz in the English language. Are you really that stupid or are you just a really good actor?

    Why would nintendo name a grass type after a lightbulb, which is closer to electricity.

    Not exactly. Ho-oh is the actual name of a legendary bird in Japan mythology that just resembles a phoenix. I could go more into this legend, but I'll save it for later.


    Charmander is from the legend of 'fire salamanders' even though salamanders are amphibians. During the winter, they would hibernate in trees. When people used the wood for fire, the salamanders would run out of the fireplace, thinking it was spring. People thought back then that salamanders were born from fire, giving Charmander its fire type.


    Random information is fun.

    The 4th generation names are the worst.

    The Pokedex of Pokedream has the names and why theyre called that.
    Lugia actually means guardian of the sea in japanese
