Which Pokemon's names are real words ?

Gloom. Maybe I misunderstood this topic, but I thought it was supposed to just be Pokémon names that are actual words, not just portmanteaus of actual words.

Maybe the language was made with Pokemon in mind.

Most Pokemon say their names right? Maybe they used these names as words because the Pokemon who they're named after represent the meaning.

A diglett burrows underground. A shorthand of the word would be dig.

Dugtrio has 3 heads. Lets make the word trio refer to three.



A lot of languages today are Latin-based. Maybe in Pokemon language is Pokemon-based.
