    Yeah, I noticed that a couple years ago. I thought it was cool too. A lot of Pokemon names have little hidden stuff/meaning in their name to help you associate them.

    Yes to both. I realized it about 10 years ago when the games were first released in USA.

    Ahh, well I didn't figure the Ekans and Arbok ones out myself, I just read them somewhere. You must be pretty observant.

    All Pokemon have name origins (No exceptions), but some are easier to figure out than others.
    Articuno/Zapdos/Moltres and Ekans/Arbok are some of the easier ones, if you ask me...
    Gardevoir, for example, is one that most people would have to look up.

    And what does it mean? Groudon, if you take away the 2nd "o" and then switch the "d" with the "n", you get ground, voltorb = volt orb, and many others I have found out, but don't feel like posting.:tongue:

    I recall this topic from about 5 years ago. It is always fun to discuss again. I post a link to that topic not for you to post in as it is against the rules to dig up dead topics from years ago, but to read over the findings from back then.
