Talk:List of Pokémon by name

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

I noticed that this list is up-to-date as of Gen III, and very few of the Gen IV Pokémon have English names yet, so what do we do? Should we fill them in gradually as they get them, or wait for them all at once? Not including the Japanese romanji in there is a definite good idea, though, no matter what future generation we're dealing with. Tom Temprotran 04:21, 11 November 2006 (UTC)

Vote for waiting the full list to avoid multiple edits and avoid rumors, besides there is always the chance of a last minute change like some G I PKMN had. Gambler 04:32, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, true. Ah well, now to have pages based on Pokémon by height and weight... Won't that be fun? Tom Temprotran 09:07, 11 November 2006 (UTC)
Working on that right now. How about one by species? Or by Gender ratio? Or by Breeding Group? Or by EV given? Or am I going too far? Gambler 09:29, 13 November 2006 (UTC)
None of those is really too far, at least as much as I see. Species maybe, since those are maybe 3-4 Pokémon apiece... And we have the listed Egg groups (just not updated fully to Gen IV, I think)... EVs would be a good one, though... And maybe a gender page would be a good idea. Heck, it'd be a great one. I'll add those two to the template. Tom Temprotran 07:12, 14 November 2006 (UTC)
Could someone have the regional numbers and browser numbers added to the table? i'd do it myself but its too tedious. 折り紙ガイ - 離す 貢献 16:07, 8 May 2008 (UTC)

Umm, it says that no Japanese romanji will be included in the beginning, but the newly released Zoroark and Zorua are listed on the list

Little icons

I think this page would look better if it had the little icons before the Pokémon's name. I tried to add them myself, but it was too tedious. Especially since some of the pictures are .gif and some others are .png for no reason. -Someone Else

Those that are beyond 400 are all png. Up to that point, they're all gif. And yes, it is tedious. TTEchidnaGSDS! 01:21, 31 January 2008 (UTC)
Okay, I did A and B, by copy and pasting other tabled lists, but changing the data. And it is very tedious. Anyone can join in and help if they want. --Someone Else
Okay! I have done the entirety of the page. It took a couple of days, but it's done. --Someone Else 08:41, 5 February 2008 (UTC)

Ho-Oh and Honchkrow

In this article, Honchkrow precedes Ho-Oh. But the database's categories list Ho-Oh before Honchkrow. Personally, I'd change it to the way the categories do it. But I'm afraid I might mess up something. TorchicBlaziken 17:47, 22 August 2008 (UTC)

I thought special characters are supposed to come before the letters. Which would make sense to have Ho-Oh first. ~$aturn¥oshi THE VOICES 23:04, 22 August 2008 (UTC)


-To me that doesn't seem trivia worthy, It is too broad, (Of the seven two are this, two are that, and three are the other) Lokitrick 13:14, 8 August 2010 (UTC)

- It should say four Pokemon, not seven, since Zekrom shouldn't be on the list, and even with it included, there are only five names with Z now, not seven.--Jdthebud 16:55, 21 February 2011 (UTC)

Another trivia

Since Generation II, there has been a Pokémon species starting with each letter of the alphabet. However in Generation I, there was no Pokémon starting with the letters Q, U, X or Y. Kidburla 10:30, 30 October 2010 (UTC)

A small request

Bulbanews has already confirmed that there are over 50 English names for the new Generation V Pokémon like Sawk, Liepard, Pidove, Oshawott, etc. Somebody has got to add these to the list.--JeffSharpedo rk 23:51, 11 February 2011 (UTC)

Generation V

Now that all of the Unova Pokemon have been released, we should add in the Pokemons' sprites and names... as well as changing the trivia Toadstool 00:32, 12 April 2011 (UTC)

Wanted to say the same. I would definitely help with it. --KingisNitro 15:48, 12 April 2011 (UTC)
I've saved an edit in a notepad with the list and trivia updated. According to the log, the block expires on Monday, so if nobody does it before, I'll have it done by then.--Kaoz 03:37, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

Opening paragraph

It says "minus the Generation IV Pokémon", when Gen V should be mentioned as well now. Flicky1991 16:52, 17 April 2011 (UTC)

Really? --PenblooeR 22:15, 6 February 2012 (UTC)

In your list..
for some of the pokes, there is more than one z in the name (ex Mandibuzz has 2 z's). So do you only count that as one z?(because it seems like that's how you did it) i didn't do it like that (In the section below this) That's why even though you listed 31 pokemon with z, z actually occurs 34 times (electabuzz, mandibuzz, and zigzagoon have 2 each) - unsigned comment from Phoenixon (talkcontribs)

Everything To Gen V

Occurrence: a-464, b-101, c-159, d-153, e-415, f-61, g-156, h-136, i-358, j-10, k-104, l-309, m-168, n-292, o-405, p-147, q-10, r-376, s-253, t-264, u-194, v-45, w-77, x-22, y-86, z-34 Phoenixon 07:24, 18 March 2012 (UTC)

You forgot...

that there is no gen 4 poke. starting with z,so I added it. Rajjoaby (talk) 16:18, 25 January 2013 (UTC)

Also no pokemon introduced in gen II beginning with V. Rajjoaby (talk) 13:44, 27 January 2013 (UTC)

Longest name

Can anyone add a trivia about the longest name or can I do it myself? Cinday123 (talk) 06:52, 20 November 2013 (UTC)

Unique letters; Eevee and Ho-Oh

The trivia says "The fewest number of unique letters that have been in a Pokémon's name is 2, with Eevee.", but shouldn't that also include Ho-Oh? Dash/hyphen is not a letter but a non-alphanumeric character. By the way, Eevee also wins "highest vowel concentration" by the way (at 80 % of its name). On the other hand, Skrelp has the highest consonant concentrations, at 83.3 % of its name. (Jynx could also be 100 % consonants, depending on how Y is categorized in English, which I'm never sure since I'm not native.) Hopefully I didn't mis anything. As for just the highest "amount of vowels/consonants", several Pokemon have 7 consants (Tangrowth, Crabominable...) and several have 5 vowels (Celesteela, Alomomola...), so I guess that's unnotable. Didn't find a Pokemon that'd have more than said numbers. KingisNitro (talk) 13:13, 28 February 2017 (UTC)


So I have noticed that Grafaiai has a sequence of four vowel letters in a row, which isn't very common even in regular words, and as such I have three questions: 1) Is it the only Pokémon with a vowel sequence of such length? Maybe there is a tool that allows checking this fast, or a really patient person (which I'm the opposite of). 2) If so, is it peculiar enough to add to the trivia section? It is a section about letter facts after all. 3) If so, is it okay to add it sooner, or should we wait until the entire Gen IX roster is known for a possibility of another case like this? Kikugi (talk) 20:23, 15 September 2022 (UTC)

I looked through the list algorithmically and the only Pokémon with three or more consecutive vowels in their English name are Nidoqueen, Beautifly, and Grafaiai, making Grafaiai the Pokémon with the most consecutive vowels. It could be interesting to include but we should probably at least wait for the game's release to make sure there are no other cases like this in the base game's regional dex. Landfish7 22:28, 15 September 2022 (UTC)
Can you check the list again, since the games are out and all the names are known? Kikugi (talk) 21:42, 17 November 2022 (UTC)

Another Trivia

The two pokémon that stand exactly in the middle of the list alphabetically (two because there is an even number of pokemon), as of Gen IX, are Mabosstiff and Machamp. --Ulisses (talk) 20:31, 1 July 2023 (UTC)

Edit: (Previous info was wrong) The pokémon that stands exactly in the middle of the list alphabetically, as of Gen IX, is Machamp. --Ulisses (talk) 21:16, 1 July 2023 (UTC)

I mean, it is true, but idk what readers would gain out of us mentioning it. Like unless you're playing with statistics, i don't think pointing out that something is in the exact middle of a list does anything, idk. Anzasquiddles (talk) 04:18, 2 July 2023 (UTC)
