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.
NO!

"Pikachu" is exactly the same as the Japanese name.

The "Pika" part means "sparkle" or something to that effect, reffering to electricity.
"Chu" is what mice say in Japanese. Something like "squeak"

So, in English, its name should be, if it were translated literally, something like "Squarkle". Ew... I'm glad they left it "Pikachu".

So, yeah, sorry for yelling.

But isn't Arbo(c/k) spelled with a 'k', instead of a 'c'? Correct me if I'm wrong, but, that would mean arbok backwards is really 'kobra'! What's with that?

That's because Ks are much cooler (or kooler, I guess) than Cs.

I just thought of something. If we lived in a world were Pokemon replaced animals, hunters would be shooting at Stantlers, and police would have bomb-sniffing Growlith's, and Sharpedo's would be attacking people at beaches... and vampires would turn into Zubat Yea...

Exclamation Re: General Chit Chat

And we'd eat Miltank burgers, win Goldeens in plastic bags at the carnival and we'd say J-Lo has a Scyther-shaped arse. Sorry, dude, but this topic was covered recently.

What else do you have to add though?

No offense to it's many fans, but I actually find Milotic kinda homely. Ninetales would have my vote as the most beutiful of all the Pokemon.

I agree to it to some extent... though I never liked Ninetales because she looks ugly from the back XD

That was pretty close to flaming, liquid crystal.

Assaulting a post over a typo is certainly not very friendly.

I was also making an observation based on an educated guess and book knowledge. Of course, the "pika" part was the guess and the chu was the book knowledge. There are several types of mice known as chu's that are native to the Eastern Asia. And in their case, the word "chu" is meaning the same as mouse or shrew. In the Japanese, pika when used as meaning sparkle is used as a verb this way; "Pika-pika suru." Also in the Japanese, chu does not mean squeak or anything near it, however, it does mean annotation, note, faithfulness, loyalty, medium, and average. Using it as the ending "-chu" it means in the middle of, in the process of, during, in, and amoung. An example of which would be denwachu, or "in the middle of speaking."

Gardevoir is the most beautiful, though.

Articuno is easily the most beautiful. Magestic(sp?) and all that. It's the tail... can't even fook with that silky tail.
