Awesome, love it! Oshawott is the best Unova starter by far. And i agree with cfninjax, Tepig is a really, REALLY rushed and non-thought-through name. Really cool pic, all it needs is some random rando in the foreground. LOL

The names always grow on me. The only starter I didn't like was Tepig. I mean really? TePIG? They had to make it that obvious as to what animal it's derived from. Might as well call him Crispy Bacon.

I'd be more horrified about the name if the Pokemon itself weren't so gooftastic-lookin'.

Although, this is my nephew's Unova starter, so I should dampen my snarkiness.

The anime is actually doing more to get me acclimated to thinking of these things as Pokemon....Oshawott's so adorably overconfident, and has a thing going for Ash to rival his old Chikorita and its jealousy issues.

Stuff like that does a lot to take it from "what an odd design" to feeling like I know what that Pokemon's like. :nod:

I firgured out the Pun for Oshawott. And the question mark is very fitting once I tell you. Oshawott = (I should What?)
Second form Dewott = (Do What?)
their is no question pun with Samurott just Samurai and otter.

I am wondering if they just axed the naming department or were they all just drunk when they came up with these names.

To be honest though, after saying it a few times I really didn't have a problem with Mijumaru's english name (still is dumb but...) as for the others...

Don't get TOO mad at Nintendo; I think they're being clever...

Osha - Ocean, obviously.
ott - Otter, also obvious.
wa- Japanese style.

In an interview with the creators, what were then known as Tsutarja, Pokabu, and Mijumaru were described as representing three styles; American (Tsutarja: I STILL don't see it...), Chinese (Pokabu: See the pigs in Kungfu Panda for example), and Japanese (Mijumaru, who uses his shell like a katana).

Osha-wa-ott: Ocean Japanese Otter. Brilliant.

I remember an interview that said he was inspired by the anime Rose of Versailles, which is why he looks so French ._.

From Bulbapedia:
Ken Sugimori has said that Snivy's personality was meant to be similar to that of European (particularly French) royalty, specifically mentioning The Rose of Versailles anime as inspiration.
