Funny thing about Greninja

I'm usually a fan of Japanese names because saying them like a stereotype is pretty damned fun.

I like Amphinobi (Amphibian Shinobi!) a lot.

The one I can pronounce easily in my native language, Greninja.


Only the Korean name seems moderately difficult to pronounce in English, presuming that is your native language.


Not really given there are different syllables for different letters. For example, in Spanish two L's together make a "ya" sound, compared to English where it retains it's L sound.

For example: Ella. In English it says E L L A. Just like the alphabet. In Spanish it's AE YA, basically.

As I am not familiar with other languages other than Spanish (high school level) and some slight Japanese (elementary level at best, stupid high school making me take it). I don't know how to pronounce or say those other names without looking it up.

No, no.
You're not the only one who likes to pretend talking like a horribly racist Japanese stereotype.

That's odd how the English name uses French and the French name uses English.
