Why is "Talonflame" a problem when "Seel" is still a thing?

Because it doesn't sound nice. simple as that.

Talonflame sounds fine IMO.

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

Unless "Seel" is one of the more highly-regarded names, I fail to see what your point is.
Honestly, as stupid as the name is, I'm mostly annoyed with them ditching the "robin" hood/archery theme

I'm surprised this is still an issue for some people. While I'll admit that when I first heard the name I was appalled, I've reconsidered naming trends in Pokemon and accepted the fact that "Talonflame" is not really any different than "Primeape" or "Seel", or what have you.

This signature is reserved for a witty remark... of which I have none.

i don't have a problem at all with Talonflame or Gogoat or Scatterbug.

Its actually amusing. I just will never forgive Klink, Klang (whom I thought was Klank for the longest time) and Klinklang

How many of you against the name realize it's pronounced Tal-inflame?
