I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

Co-los-singe (like "to singe", a similar burning action)

It basically means Colossal Monkey... or Powerful Monkey, as "Colosse" in French often means "a muscular man", similar to a bar doorman or bodyguard.

French and German names are decent most of the times, though they each have hits or misses. English doesn't have that many, but Japanese does have too many. I've seen a video on YT, hosted by Gaijin Goomba, who explained Pokémon names... and, well, he got disappointed just with the Kanto starters.

Charmander's name in Japanese means "Salamander"... that's it...

Many Japanese Pokémon names are just common names or simple English names, while in English, French and German, they are using portmanteaus, word-splicing, anagrams and such.
