Pokemon Names In Different Languages


If you’ve ever seen Pokemon you know that the majority of Pokemon, except the ones that can speak English, can only say their own names and that’s how they communicate. Sounds a lot like the Marglar from South Park. What you may not have known or even bothered to think about is that each Pokemon’s name changes depending on what language you’re playing the game in. Above are a few of those names, as depicted by English artist James Chapman. You can even buy a poster of that lovely picture right here.

And just in case you wanted a full list of names in Japanese, Korean, Chinese, German and French…well here you go.
