11 Things Only Die-Hard Fans Get About Funny Pokemon Names
S The creators of Pokémon often use puns when naming their characters. For example, in the Generation I games, Charmander is a combination of “char” meaning to produce or make fire with “charm” as an act that deceives people; Charizard and its mega forms are dragon-like creatures with “lizard” as part of the name. Some Pokémon names have been altered before they were released into public knowledge. In Red and Blue, we originally had to deal with Pidgeotto instead of Pidgeot because it was named after a bird called the pidgeon rather than its “Pidgy”. However this soon changed!
Other interesting examples include
The Pokémon franchise has had a long history of introducing new creatures with delightfully clever names. In honor of the newly announced Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu! and Eevee!, we decided to take an in-depth look at some of our favorite funny, clever, and just plain weird Pokemon names that have been released so far.
Some are punny; others make references to other things like musicians or even video games (we wonder if anyone will ever name their child Kalos after one of these). And while they might not become as iconic as Bulbasaur or Charmander anytime soon, there’s something about each one that still gives us shivers down our spine when we remember them – well In the Pokémon world, there are over 700 different species of creatures that inhabit the land. While some names make sense (like Pikachu), others don’t (Eevee).
Some players nickname their team with creative and funny Pokemon-inspired handles like “Team Instinct,
” but most people just use numbers to reference them in a game. This may seem confusing for newbies, so we’ve compiled all sorts of information about these critters’ nicknames below!
The first generation games: In Generation I you can only have up to six Pokemon per player file; they’re sorted by type and each one has an individual number assigned to it. The order goes as follows: Bulbasaur, Charmander or Squirtle, Caterpie, Weedle and Pidgey.
The second generation games: In Generation II you can store up to a whopping twenty-eight Pokemon per player file; they’re sorted by type (again) and each one has an individual number assigned to it. The order goes as follows: Bulbasaur or Ivysaur, Charmander or Charmeleon, Wartortle or Blastoise, Rattata or Raticate; Spearow and Fearow.
In all generations the numbering system seems easy enough at first glance – but wait! There’s more! Every Pokemon also have special nicknames that people use instead of their numbers in certain situations.. For example “Pikachu”! There are plenty of other Pokemon that have peculiar names, such as “Hoppip,” “Kangaskhan” or the always amusing and cute “Jigglypuff.”
This is why I love Pokémon games – they’re so clever.

One of the most popular types of Pokemon names are puns. These often take advantage of words that sound like other words or have similar spellings, such as “Charizard,” which sounds a lot like “charr.” This is one type to look out for when playing Pokémon and leads to some pretty interesting results.
“Charmander” can be pronounced with an accent on the second syllable (shar-MAHN-der) instead of the third syllable (shahr-MAHN), so it’s kind of a clever way to give someone else something without them knowing what they’re getting into.
Another example is “Abra”; pronounce this word in Spanish (“AHBRA”) and you’ll get an entirely different word.
There are some Pokemon names that seem like they were chosen at random and there doesn’t appear to be any rhyme or reason behind them, such as “Snorlax.” Sometimes these can have meanings in other languages; for example, the name “Haunter” is a verb meaning to hide and wait patiently (to haunt).
One of the more bizarre types of funny Pokémon names out there are puns involving words from other cultures. This type might not always make sense to people who don’t speak another language! For instance: “Magikarp,” which uses part of Japanese culture’s tradition called koi fish, pronounced goi fish when referenced with English letters. The name’s meaning is even explained in a segment of the Pokemon anime series: “This looks like some kind of red and white fish. Its body shape reminds me of carp, but it jumps like a goldfish.” – These Pokémon names can also have meanings that are related to other things besides culture; for example, there are plenty of English words used as puns or stylistic choices on the list. A few examples include “Machop” (a reference to machismo), “Pikachu” (which sounds similar to Pikachu fried rice) and Snorlax (“snore” + “lac”) which refers to its sleeping habits. – The creators’ intent behind these funny Pokémon names varies from person to person
