I never noticed that, does that mean were all slow, or not many people know?

Woah and to think I discovered that eons ago
The numbers are in Spanish, si?

Anywho, just wondering if anyone pay attention to the Pokemon names like Spheal = seal, sphere, Charmeleon = charcoal, chameleon. Otherwise, I just spend too much time reading the descriptions.

On another note, has anyone seen Torkoal's PokeDex description in Emerald (not sure if it's the same in R/S), but it says it makes a sound like a locomotive's horn, and come to think about it, that is the same in the anime :P. I may just be crazy, but I love to see similarities

If you would convert each the sybells in 1 figure, you would get R-K9.

*Bells ring, trumpets blast, squirrel army marches through*

I have returned from my epic journey in the lands of Khakalacki (the Carolina's) and I am pleased to be back!

Time, computer availability and much more did their best to keep me away. Infact I think the last thing I did was being right in the middle of a ref test

Well, I won't persue that for awhile. I'd be a bit rusty. Been months, maybe a year since I've been around.


Anyway,

I've noticed that nearly all if not all pokemon have their names as a combination of two words. Both tend to describe in some way. Such as pikachu. Pika, like pika-boo symbolizes cuteness, while chu is a name for shrew or mouse. Sometimes a name has syllable break down to gather meaning and sometimes the name is random, but for the most part, they all fall under this.

Does my avatar still say angelfire?
