What Pokemon names sound cool and/or clever to you?

Deino, zweilous, hydreigon. Come to think of it, most pokemon have really clever names.

I don't think a lot of people realize how cleaver those names actually are. It's a shame, really.
Let's just pretend this says something witty.

Deino - deinonychus/dinosaur (for its ferocity) + ein, declined form of eins, German for "one"
Zweilous - zwei German for "two" + zealous/jealous
Hydreigon - hydra + drei German for "three" + dragon

Snivy - snide/snob/snake/snarky + ivy
Tepig - tepid + pig (not "teh pig")
Oshawott - ocean + water + otter

Milotic contains Milo, as in Venus de Milo, which is also an armless icon of beauty. Also melodic, exotic, etc.
Deoxys and its Defense, Normal, Attack and Speed formes.
Lucario looks like orichalcum, a mythical metal, and Cairo.

Probably others too.
