Personally, This is what i think of the starter's names:

Snivy~ I guess Snivy is ok, but i will always call it Tsutarja

Tepig~ No, just no. Enough said.

Oshawott~ I like it better than Mijumaru. Personally, I think Oshawott is cute!

Snivy and Tepig are OK, but Oshawott? That's what they get when they try to put parts of too many words into a small number of letters. It's weird.

"Tepig" comes from "Tepid", which means lukewarm.

I like the name Snivy. It sounds catchy. xD

Tepig sounds weird. I mean, its obviosly a pig. They just added a "Te" to the beggining. Its pretty random if you ask me.

Oshawott sounds normal. Just… Normal.

The "shi" in Reshiram (like "shi" is in general in Japanese) is pronounced pretty much like "she".

Oh my gosh! I am so sorry for the double post! But, I meant the names never meant much to me anyway. I usually nicknamed my Pokemon whatever the heck I want.

Well, I kind of like the starter names. I'll live with it. I never did care much for the names, but Snivy? It makes Pokemon sound like a kids show. "Hey kids, are you ready to see Snivy the [insert animal here]!


But, I am wondering one thing. Is the I in Reshiram's name a long I or a short I? Or, did they just leave it up to me to start a flame war over which is better.

The same place "Isshu" came from: a wordplay on unity. Very possibly also has to do with "nova", meaning "new", or an abbreviation of "United States of America", what with the region's real-world counterpart.

The names are DECENT, and I use the term lightly… I agree that Smugleaf and Ottamaru would be better.

It's the region name I have a problem with. UNOVA? Where did that come from?

Tepig is cool.

Snivy is cool.

Oshawott is awesome!

I think Tepig's next evolutions should gradually get warmer, such as Tepig>>Warmine>>Hotoinka.

Snivy… so… "Sn"…

Oshawott! I absolutely ADORE double letters. And also, it just sounds cool. <3 Oshawott.

At least they used a clever pun. I like Tepig in a cold way.

[25/11/2010 20:38:42]

The "Te-" part of Tepig's name is from the adjective "tepid", meaning "just a bit warm". I think it's clever, but it's not the kind of thing everyone will get (tepid isn't a very common word).

I actually like Snivy better than Smugleaf. Oshawott's a pretty cool name too, but not as good as Snivy. But Tepig?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

That name is absolutly awful. I don't even know where the Te- part of its name came from.

P.S. Butterfree was right, people always hate the English names of new pokemon when the names are revealed.

Snivy: I was honestly hoping for Smugleaf (not like it was going to happen :P), but I can't complain too much about Nintendo's name choice.

Tepig: It took me a while, but the name has grown on me! I really like it!

Oshawott: What kind of a name is that? o_e;

If I had to name the starters, my decisions would be Smugleaf, Tepig, and Ottamaru.

Think about it: how much cooler would it be to say, "Go! Smugleaf!" than, "Go! Snivy!" Just sayin'. ;)
