Talon... Flame.

Talon Flame.


It's a bird and a fire type thing, but TALON...FLAME? I GET IT! It's a combination of two words! like a lot of pokes but.... Talon-Flame? Really? talon frikin flame

Geodude and Dewgong are even more creative.

Good thing nicknaming is a thing.

The first poke'mon with a compound word. Not even that really. It's not good. Robburn? Flarrow? Infinitely better? Yes?

Even switching the words around sounds better.

Flametalon. Talonflame. Flametalon. Talonflame.

Flametalon sounds natural, Talonflame sounds awkward.

Only if you pronounce talon in Flametalon like salon. Talonflame is better than Flametalon without that. Salonflame doesn't work, though.

Okay yeah, I like that one.

I feel like this is the Ducklett scenario all over again.

I will never forgive the localization team for passing on the opportunity to name him Aquack.

I think I will name mine...
Flaregrine (flare-eh-grin) [flare + peregrine]

Edit: Ooh! Or maybe Flarecon [Flare + Falcon + Recon]. Yep, going with that.
