    Default Renaming the Pokemon...

    No offense, but as I ranted a few weeks ago, the English Pokemon names seem to be becoming lamer and lamer. As a result of a caffeine overdose, I couldn't sleep last night and spent the whole night renaming some of the Sinnoh Pokemon. Now I can't remember most of them, but I'll guess.

    Purugly=Grimeow
    Honchkrow=Darkrow or Duskrow or Blackrow (something like that)
    Grotle=Terrago
    Chingling=Chimebel or Winbel
    Combee=Vesbii
    Wormadam=Wormadan or -don(no big change there)
    Budew=Rosebi
    Luxray=Luxiore
    Bronzong=Bronzel
    Giratina=Girtina, Giratia, iono, just something similar to what they did to Dialga and Palkia.

    Okay, I have finished butchering and massacreing. x]

    Would be nice if you gave explanations for the names.

    Mostly they're just variations of their pre-evolved or evolved form, but I can explain some of them. But I thought they'd be pretty obvious.

    Grimeow: Grim + meow
    Darkrow, etc.: Dark (or w/e) + crow
    Terrago: I just changed it cause it seems out of the line in the evolution line. I mean, they should sound similar, right? Turtwig->GROTLE->Torterra? It doesn't seem to fit. (Yeah, I know where it comes from, don't lecture me.)
    Chimebel: Chimecho + bell (or wind + bell)
    Vesbii: Vespiquen + bee
    Wormadan: Wormadam just doesn't seem right to me.
    Rosebi: Again, fitting it into the evolution line.
    Luxiore: Based on Luxor, y'know, that Las Vegas casino XDD
    Bronzel: Bronze + relic
    Girtina: If it's part of the Dialga/Palkia trio, it should at least have its name butchered the same way.

    I hope this is what you meant ^^'''

    Giratina means Fire Opal so it wouldn't be changed.
