Name origin

What do you guys think of the name coming from 轟轟 (gōgō), which means rumbling?KurowaSan (talk) 07:15, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure it's supposed to be "Gogoat". JacobtheDoduo (talk) 17:22, 12 May 2013 (UTC)
There is nothing confirming that. We do not assume romanizations. Ataro (talk) 17:30, 12 May 2013 (UTC)

Horn Leech

Is it worth mentioning that its signature move is Horn Leech? MasterZ (talk) 23:03, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

It's not...--Den Zen 23:24, 13 May 2013 (UTC)

So many Grass types learn Horn Leech. True, GoGoat/Gogoto was released with an animation of Horn Leech, but other Pokémon learn it.152105 (talk) 20:56, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

What are you talking about? Only Sawsbuck can learn it prior to X and Y. Ataro (talk) 21:07, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

About the german/french name origin

I have no idea what che- means (maybe from Chevrolet lol), but I'm pretty sure that -vrumm/-vroum comes from the sound that a car makes when the engine is revving. (probably referencing the riding part) Raykyogrou0 (Talk) 05:45, 15 May 2013 (UTC)

I believe that chev- comes form "chèvre", french word for "goat". - unsigned comment from Toback (talkcontribs)
The -vrumm/-vroum also relates to the 轟轟 (gōgō) in japanese, which is the onomatopoeia for "engine sounds".KurowaSan (talk) 04:18, 16 May 2013 (UTC)

Goat? More like a deer.

Looks like t would be related to the Tragelaphus family with the Kudu, Bushbuck, & Nyala. - unsigned comment from Likalaruku (talkcontribs)

It clearly looks like a goat. Not to mention its name is Gogoat. Jo the Marten ಠ_ಠ 07:28, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
Yeah I agree with Jo. A member of the Tragelaphus family has either straight horns or horns with a spiral to them. The horns of Gogoat are more indicative of a goat which grow backwards at a curve. Nuckles123 (talk) 17:21, 15 May 2013 (UTC)
Animal type Pokemon are usually a blend of different animals, but I suppose the Markhor goat does look very similar to the Greater Kudu antelope. - unsigned comment from Likalaruku (talkcontribs)
