User:Kenji-girl/English name predictions

From Bulbapedia, the community-driven Pokémon encyclopedia.
Jump to: navigation, search

These are my guesses to what the new names of future Pokémon characters when they get their English names.

Note to other users: You may edit this page ONLY to change the images. DO NOT add dub names. I will get to it myself.

The Unova Special

I know I said I wouldn't do games anymore. But I really want to do Black and White. I'm not doing every character though.

Character First appearance US name prediction Why Actual US name Comments
Black White Juniper.png
Professor Araragi
Black and White Professor Aspen From the Aspen tree. I know her name is from Yew, but I don't think America will use that. Professor Juniper Not even close. I shouldn't be surprised though
VSCilan.png
Dent
Black and White Clover Yes, I know, it' a girl's name. Of course, he wouldn't be the first. I just think this because it's a plant that has three leaves. I don't really like this prediction and it will probably be wrong, but I wanted to try D: Cilan Yuck... cilantro. The name is great, I just find cilantro disgusting. Better than what I said.
VSChili.png
Pod
Black and White Still thinking about it It'll be hard to guess his name. I don't know what they will pun. The Tri thing or the types. Chili Oh God, why...? I get the theme you were going for but, ugh... Cayenne would have been 100 times better!
VSCress.png
Corn
Black and White Still thinking about it It'll be hard to guess his name. I don't know what they will pun. The Tri thing or the types. Cress Like Cilan, nice choice.
VSLenora.png
Aloe
Black and White Regina From regular, referring to Normal-types Lenora No comment
VSBurgh.png
Arti
Black and White Antone From ant, referring to Bug-types. I'm aware that he doesn't use ants. Burgh Yuck
VSElesa.png
Kamitsure
Black and White Ellen
or
Eleanor
From electricity, referring to Electric-types Elesa Fine I guess
VSClay.png
Yacon
Black and White Terry From terra (earth), referring to Ground-types Clay Hmm... Clay Yacon :D
VSSkyla.png
Fuuro
Black and White Heather From feather and heaven, referring to Flying-types and her Gym Leader title. I swear, if it's not this, I'll be pissed. Skyla What a stupid and unoriginal name. Oh let's put "sky" but add a feminine "la" on the end.
VSBrycen.png
Hachiku
Black and White Fritz From freeze, referring to Ice-types Brycen Honestly MUST we pun the word "ice" with all the Ice Gym Leaders? There are other words that relate to ice besides ice itself. And it sounds too similar to Pryce.
VSDrayden.png
Shaga
Black and White Bastian From basilisk, referring to Dragon-types. Interestingly, basilisk starts with B, like black. Drayden The name doesn't make that much sense to me.
VSIris.png
Iris
Black and White Lavern From wyvern, referring to Dragon-types. Interestingly, wyvern starts with W, like white. Iris Oh my. No change? Really? What does Iris have to do with dragons?
VSShauntal.png
Shikimi
Black and White Beatrice From banshee. Shauntal Fine
VSGrimsley.png
Giima
Black and White Edward From Edward Cullen, the vampire and main character of Twilight. Hey, it's at the height of its popularity. Sabrina anyone? Also kinda sounds like dark. Grimsley Sounds like a butler's name...
VSMarshal.png
Renbu
Black and White Ruben From rumble. Also an anagram of Renbu. Marshal Fine
Hawes anime.png
Kidachi
Black and White Krantz From the Krantz aloe, like his Japanese name. Hawes Such a southern-sounding name. Guess it fits though

Part 2

Just for fun.

Character First appearance US name prediction Why Actual US name Comments
VSRoxie.png
Homika
Black 2 and White 2 Vanessa, Veronica, or Venus From venom. I just hope they don't make up some name like "Poisonetta" or something... I don't want another Skyla. Veronica comes from mainly from the Strychnos nux-vomica, the origin of her Japanese name. The Venus might not happen because of this one. But I was trying to stick to plants. Roxie Oh well.
VSMarlon.png
Shizui
Black 2 and White 2 Walter From water obviously. Marlon It reminds me of Finding Nemo. Good thing I love Finding Nemo.
VSBenga.png
Banjirō
Black 2 and White 2 Gulliver His Japanese name means guava so I tried to pick something similar to that. Also ends with "er" like Alder. Benga N/A

Mitchell PSA.png
Mitsuki
DP090 Never guessed Mitchell Well I never bothered thinking up a prediction

Prof Carolina.png
Professor Karashina
DP096 Professor Chrysanthemum Well it sounds similar and its a plant, like the other professors. Professor Carolina Wrong. Seriously, WTF? Did we have to go for a name that sounds almost like another important character's name...

Ursula.png
Urara
DP114 Gabrielle
or
Renee
Gabrielle sounds like Gabite. If you can figure out why I guessed Renee you get a prize! The clue lies in Zoey. Liza Jacqueline Ursula Melissa Schoenberg Puh... Ursula. Gabrielle would have been better. Seems that everyone predicting got this right though.
Christopher Sinnoh.png
Yūsaku
DP117 Sundance Only picking it cause I'm thinking of "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid". Even though he's more related to Jessie and James. Tom Wayland Christopher Sean Schemmel Christopher? Really? Now all we need is Christopher (Hoenn) and we'll have one in every region.

O cotd.png
Ō
DP124 Master O Ō is an unusual name... I think they'll pull another Sho and leave it. He should go on a date with J. Scottie Ray O Jason Griffith That's basically right. Gonna go make some OJ 8D.
Halverson.png
Hakua
DP124 Harold Cause. Tom Wayland Halverson Tom Wayland What the hell? I have never heard of that name in my life.
Marilyn.png
Marilyn
DP125 Marilyn Western-sounding name. Won't change. Kether Donahue Marilyn Bella Hudson Right
Jeremiah.png
Ubukata

Maria.png
Mikoto
DP128 Miley Starts with "Mi". Plus with Miley Cyrus being at the height of her popularity. Heh, it be funny if Mikoto and Cyrus met XD Amy Birnbaum Maria Rebecca Soler Wrong. Fine I guess.
Olivier.pngOsabaki DP131 Oscar Sounds like Oscar. Yeah I know there is already an Oscar but not like they haven't used names more than once. Sean Reyes Olivier Sean Schemmel Wrong

Izzy and Cara.png
Iizō Iino
DP138 Andy Anderson (Mr. Anderson) Starts with a vowel. Also, I think there gonna pull another Mitch Mitchum and make the first name sound similar to the surname. Similar to there Japanese names. Dan Green Izzy Ed Paul Wrong. Again a name that I guessed for one character is used for another.

Kane Iino
DP138 Karen Anderson (Mrs. Anderson) Cause it's similar Kayzie Rogers Cara Georgette Reilly "Cara", "Karen", sounds similar.

Mario.pngMobuo DP146 Moses Starts with an M Sean Schemmel Mario Tom Wayland Itza Me! MARIO!!
Mitchell.png
Michiru
DP148 Michael I really want to say Mitchell but they already used that in Sinnoh. And I don't expect PUSA to be stupid like 4Kids and make to characters of the same name in the same region. Erica Schroeder Mitchell Amy Palant I have lost all faith in PUSA... You fail hard for this.
Rhyanna.png
Ruchiru
DP148 Lucille
or
Michele
Ruchiru is almost like the romanization of Lucille. Michele is similar to Michael Rebecca Soler Rhyanna Lisa Ortiz Peh...

Salvia.png
Princess Salvia
DP171 Unchanged

Kenyan
BW028 Canyon I had a friend named Canyon so it kind of stuck with me when I heard this name. Stephan That works.
Professor Icarus.png
Dr. Imori
BW030 Professor Newton Yeah, I'm aware we have a Newton. But this is why. Imori means newt in Japanese. And Isaac Newton was an astronomer. Professor Icarus Not right. It's A-OK.
Georgia.png
Langley
BW033 Langley
or
Lindsay
Unsure. But a similar name just in case Georgia Possibly the biggest fail in dub names that they have ever made. Where did you even come up with Georgia!?
Mr. Garrison.png

Leon.png
Leon
BW045 Leon Same. Though I have a feeling this guy will be given a thick French accent. So the name might be pronounced "lay-own". Leon Awww no French accent? :< Maybe the worried about making him look like a racial stereotype.

BW057.png
A☆Gilder
BW057 EXCELgor, Accelgor Man This is a tricky one. I'm just going to cut away the star because I doubt they'll keep it. What they may do instead is corrupt the name. So I think they could use the world excel rather than accelerate. Or they could just be lazy and use man. Really tough guess. Mighty Accelguard Yeah. Not even close
Linda anime.png
Linda
BW057 Linda Ah you know why Linda Right
Doctor Ferrara.png
Dr. Tsuraraa
BW057 Professor Icicle Just a generic guess. It is possible that they'll just translate the name. Doctor Ferrara So I guess they don't want to use professor for hakase anymore.
