One of the big projects I am working on right now is trying to come up with a name for each Pokémon evolutionary line of each gender. To do this, I have come up with names for several Pokémon that somehow relate to that Pokémon, either through their species name, type, appearance, significance, etc. If anyone would like to suggest a name, please add it to this page's talk page, along with an explanation of how it fits with that Pokémon. Please, no duplicate names.

P.S. As an additional quirk, all my legendaries will be named based on Greek mythological figures.

A "XXX" in a cell means that the Pokémon cannot be found in that gender. A ??? means that a name has yet to be found that fits that Pokémon.
