Lip Flap

I love looking at your dub name predictions (they're always so good, even when they don't choose them in the end!), but for characters who appear in the anime you have to take into account that they need to base the name partly on the number of syllables, due to the "lip flap" animation used when characters talk. That seems to have been why they changed a lot of names to more unusual or meaningless ones most of the time. --AndyPKMN 01:08, 3 January 2010 (UTC)

Bad Prediction

I forget who, but sum1 guessed Austin, so of course, they got it wrong!--KukiTalk 15:23, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

That was Kenji-girl who predicted Austin. Granted, her whiff wasn't as bad as Maxim's on that guess...--Shiningpikablu252 15:26, 24 May 2008 (UTC)

New Predictions

About the Cafe Maids, It never came to my mind to name them after the months that the seasons are present in. Great job on that one. How about September for another name for Aki. Autumn starts in September. --ケンジガール 07:34, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Thanks. But I just don't see how "September" can be a girl's name, for some reason. --Maxim 10:08, 10 June 2008 (UTC)

Yuzo

U do realize he appeared in DP001, right?--KukiTalk 15:35, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

I do. But he stayed unnamed in DP001. But I'm pretty sure they will give him some name in DP088. --Maxim 15:38, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

He did, OK then. And now that you know the userspace is bac, shouldn't u get rid of the chart above?--KukiTalk 15:40, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Voila. --Maxim 16:06, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

Sorry

I'm sorry I edited the page without permission--KukiTalk 14:37, 23 August 2008 (UTC)

Hamilton's design

PUSA didn't do it. His design was changed after the first airing of DP082 because he looked too much like Hiroshi from Dokonjō Gaeru. You might wanna change that comment. --ケンジガール 05:25, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Can't really blame Maxim for putting down the wrong thing. It wasn't until after that comment was put down that the evidence that this wasn't a dub-exclusive change was discovered. --Shiningpikablu252 05:34, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Kellyn's girly name

I think the 'y' made it look like it was Kelly n, but Kellen, an alternate spelling, is the name of two American Football players, Kellen Winslow--KukiTalk 23:28, 29 November 2008 (UTC)

Codename Looker

Look here not confirmed yet but..--Coolピカチュウ! 07:06, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

Newton Graceland

You forgot to update the Giratina characters =P --ケンジガール 11:49, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Yusaku's english name...

I got a better guess for you: Frank. Y'know, because of his whole thing with Jessie and James, plus Jesse James had a brother named Frank. That's my guess, anyway. Missingno. Master wants YOU! Join the Order of the Glitch! (my talk page) 11:54, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Not bad. I think I wouldn't think it up myself. --Maxim 13:10, 18 July 2009 (UTC)

Orion

What an awesome name. I hope his name will be Orion ShinyPika 20:46, 18 September 2009 (UTC)

Maria

The Sound of Music. Bam. ht14 04:09, 21 December 2009 (UTC)

Game Characters?

Are you planning to make predictions for character names from Black and White versions? Just wondering. --AndyPKMN 11:53, 16 October 2010 (UTC)
