How to make a Pokemon name

To make a great Pokemon name, the key is to combine elements of the Pokemon's type, its real animal inspiration, and/or its in-game lore. Here are some examples of fake Pokemon names and their origins.

  • Crocleznar - This Pokemon is a muscular crocodile so it's fitting that it would be a Fighting type. The leznar part of its name is inspired by former UFC Champion Brock Lesnar.

  • Toxitax - The toxi portion of this Pokemon name originates from its Poison typing which pairs very well with the final part of its name, tax. As any tax-paying adult knows, nothing poisons the soul quite as bad as paying taxes.

  • Growjira - This dual Grass and Dragon type Pokemon combines elements of plants and tips its hat to the King of the Monsters, Gozdilla, aka, Gojira.

  • Sparkmow - This Electric-type Pokemon buzzes with energy, much like a lawn mower on a summer day. Sparkmow combines the spark of electricity with the mundane task of mowing, creating a creature that can literally electrify the grass it cuts.

  • Chillguin - A dual Ice/Water-type, Chillguin is the epitome of cool under pressure. Its name, a portmanteau of "chill" and "penguin," reflects its icy demeanor and ability to navigate through frosty waters with ease, embodying the chill vibe of its arctic habitat.

  • Gustfeath - As light as a feather and as fast as a gust of wind, this Flying-type Pokemon can outmaneuver most opponents in the sky. Its name is a blend of "gust" and "feather," symbolizing its mastery over the air currents and its lightweight design.

  • Emberoo - Drawing inspiration from kangaroos and the smoldering embers of a fire, Emberoo is a Fire-type Pokemon that hops into battle with fiery kicks. Its pouch contains not a joey, but an eternal flame that fuels its powerful fire-based attacks.
