Snivy Whiplash by eternalsaturn Snivy Whiplash by eternalsaturn
I LOVE THIS NAME
it sounds like the perfect name for some flamboyant silent movie villain, the kind who wears a monocle and twirls his mustache while cackling evilly and tying fair damsels to the railroad track... and honestly, what could be more fitting for our dear Tsutarja Smugleaf Snivy? :heart:

Tepig and Oshawott are cute too especially since Oshawott apparently might be named after a city in Ontario so now our cute little derpy otter is now a cute little derpy Canadian otter HOW ADORABLE IS THAT

On the other hand, though... Unova? Really? What was wrong with Isshu? ;_;

Now I can't get the idea of Mijumaru/Oshawott having a Canadian accent out of my head.

In my head Oshawott doesn't even say its name like a normal Pokemon, it just goes "Eh? Eh? Ehhhh?" over and over. :D :D

YomiB: THIS IDEA. I LOVE IT. This is actually even funnier than the Excalibur jokes. XD

Also, have you seen what their names are going to be in other languages? My favourite so far is Pokabu's German name - "Floink". I dunno why, but I like it. I feel like I've been saying this a lot lately.

Snivy: Now Cratchit, you must now work on Christmas!

Seriously I like Snivy the more I hear it! But yeah... personally I think changing Unova to Isshu is really stupid.

"What was wrong with Isshu?"

because Isshu is too Japanese of a name for an American based region? :P

anyway, this is so dastardly its amazing. Bad Snivy bad :>

LOL

Oh is that the joke on Oshawott's name? I couldn't figure it out, so I thought it was a little complicated. x3

My friend told me that since "Isshu" is based on New York, they might have changed it since the other regions were all named after real places in Japan. but I'm not sure about that so don't quote me. xD

XD well that's the main theory I've heard on where exactly they got "Oshawott" from, it's not confirmed or anything but it sounds good enough to me...

I...if it's true I kinda want the evolutions to be named "Otterwa" and "Ottoronto", just to keep the theme going hahaha

Yeah, I've heard a lot of people suggest the name change was to make it sound more "western" since Isshu/Unova is the Pokeverse equivalent of the US and all, so I guess I can kinda see what they were going for, though I still don't like Unova as a name :T It just doesn't roll off the tongue like Isshu does haha
