ree-YOU-nuh-cluhs, maybe?
("uh" indicates schwa)

Also I've been thinking about Desukaan/Cofagrigus and I suspect this may be how it's pronounced, although we'll be waiting who-knows-how-long for one to show up in the anime:

COFF*-uh-gree-guhs, or maybe coff*-uh-GREE-guhs

*like the first syllable of "coffin"
Bulbapedia got me thinking that the last two syllables might stem from "egregious", but since it also comes from "sarcophagus" it might have a hard G at the end instead of a Jish G.

Also I think NoA should've either named it something else or extended the character limit in Pokemon names by 1 (it's not like they couldn't), so as to avoid the inevitable "fag" references by instead using Coffagrigus or Cophagrigus. (All this is moot if my pronunciation theory is wrong.)

I know it's a tad late to be saying this but Tepig's German name is great :D

also Braviary is relevant to my interests

Don't anyone need to worry about my name changing.

I planned on changing it to the English one, but I like Romanized butter.

It's much better than Romanised margarine!

Anyway Swadloon sounds like a pirate word. That is awesome.
Purrloin, Trubbish, Eelektrik, Shelmet and the Deino and Vanillite lines sound good too. The rest are all okay.

Got a nice official source here.

Much easier way to see all gen V pokémon out with an English name.

Look closer at what's inside the armor on that last one and compare with .

I agree, though, that they ought to have put Chobomaki in the armor instead of Kaburumo.

EDIT: @Kratos Aurion below me: oooh I never thought of that explanation.

We already knew that. That was in the Bulbapedia link Alraune had in her first post.

See the blue and yellow? That's kaburumo/whatever-speculated-English-name-is. The point is that when you trade chobomaki/whatever with kaburumo, kaburumo magically takes the shell and becomes knightguy, and chobomaki is freeee and becomes wormninja.

Ninja kaburumo stole chobomaki's armour. Surprisingly, chobomaki is apparently an even better ninja than kaburumo; kaburumo's got base 60 speed, which is pretty fast for an early-game bug, and has base 20 as shubarugo, while chobomaki's got base 25 then base 145 as agirudaa. (That's faster than marumain, for people who don't quite grasp base stats.)

Klink, Klang, and Klinklang make the whole generation immediately awesome.

On another note, how do you pronounce Axew? I'm saying Azoo, but that's probably wrong.

Might be pronounced "Axe you" but can't be sure until it's revealed in the anime.

Ah. I never realised how those bugs evolved. That makes sense now :v
Not as much sense as knight -> knight and ninja -> ninja, but.

No, they said the full list has been on and off—braviary and the names revealed on the official site today were first leaked by IGN with screenshots.
