    Well, last time I checked the Pokedex (which, btw, was a long time ago) on PD it said Lugia's Name Origin was "unknown. if you know, please contact me." or something like that.
    i don't understand how lugia translates into guardian of the sea in japanese.

    no, the Char family is made of dinosaurs or lizards, not aardvarks!

    So it's Charcoal/Salamander

    Charcoal/Chameleon

    Charcoal/Lizard

    btw, I am a primary school kid for being random.

    Huh... my theory for Squirtle's name origin was this:

    Squirrel (since a Squirtle's tail resembles that of a squirrel.)
    And Turtle (for obvious reasons.)

    I agree with this MUCH more than I agree with Unown5's reasoning.
    XDD


    I mean, honestly.
    It makes no sense what Unown said about the Char family.



    I also think that the name Bulbasaur did not come from the word "lightbulb"
    I think the "bulb" part referred to the "bulb" of a flower before it blooms.

    My favourites are Abra, Kadabra, Alakazam.

    I just think it's cool. Well, it's one of the easier ones to understand.

    I'm really upset with them naming a lovely japanese sounding "bunyatto" the horrible Purugly.


    Ugly!? UGLY!? That thing is adorable! I could snuggle and hug that thing all day! I mean jesus christ I take offense to that. That's some horrible naming.

    Yup. I loved bunyatto, it sounded so nice to pronounce. And it's really squishy and huggable, the translator obviously didn't have a clue of what he was doing.

    I would have named it "Silkeron" or something.
