Pokémon names

Pokémon names just have this certain ring to them. But what makes Pokémon names so special? Continue reading; I’m gonna tell you:

Pokémon names more often than not consist of two or more words scrambled together. For example:

  • Charmander is a combination of char (to burn) and salamander (ab amphibian often associated with fire).
  • Tentacruel is a combination of tentacle and cruel or rule (since it’s the final stage of its evolution line and maybe since it and its pre-evolution are dominating Kantos oceans)
  • Totodile is a combination of tot (a small person, since it’s the first stage of its evolution line) and crocodile.
  • Crobat is a combination cross (because of its shape) and bat.
  • Hydreigon is a combination of Hydra (a nine-headed mythological creature), the German word for three drei and dragon.

So, you see, naming a Pokémon is no magic. They often use words from different languages or similar sound words, like in Tentacruels example, to give the name even more meaning. Try this method if you want to give it a shot and give your Pokémon creation a Pokémon-esque name!

Fans of the Pokémon franchise often refer to fan-created Pokémon as Fakemon, since they’re not official. But even if the word fake has a negative connotation, you shouldn’t feel bad calling fake Pokémon that name. Many fans have dedicated a lot of their time to create thousands of Fakemon; some even make their own fangames with their creations!
