We probably already have the Japanese names of the Starters 2nd evolution

#1IzanagiBlastPosted 9/27/2013 11:14:55 PM
Remember when Coro Coro gave us the names for the 1st evolution of all 3 starters....well, those names were leaked before, but not only the first evolution names, the 2nd evolution names were leaked to( nobody believed them because it was an unknown source, however with the Coro Coro leak from this month the first names( 1st evolution of the starters), we had a confirmation that these leaks could have been real. Also Dedenne, Nyaonikusu(Meowstick japanese name). Here is the complete leak:

----------------------------------------------------
Chespin

Two names stood out to us as possible Chespin evolutions, however we only updated with the name origins of one. That was Hariboogu. Today we’ve looked back and it seems we were right in thinking there were two names that could relate to Chespin.

Hariboogu (Confirmed as Quilladin japanese name) — This stays mostly the same as what we had: hari means pin/needle, but boogu could be a combination of meaning armour, and the French word bogue (the shell of a chestnut). Strongly suggesting that Chespin could develop some sort of natural armour (something backed up by the next point).

Burigaron — Here is the biggest deviation from what we originally had. Initially we believed it could have been some sort of ice wolf, we may have been completely wrong… Brigandine is a type of armour from the middle ages, this acts as the most likely origin of buriga,Ron is assumably from marron (meaning chestnut in French). These combination of words fit the potential theme set by Hariboogu. Chespin may evolve into a sort-of knight.

Fennekin

We believe what we initially reported as a Fennekin evolution to be correct, and we’ve now found a name that could fit the bill to fill the second slot.

Mafokushii — Fokushii here still remains as foxy, ma meaning magic or demon, although in this case more likely magic. This fits with the heavily rumoured Fire/Psychic typing for Fennekin and could mean the Pokémon becomes a sorcerer of sorts.

Teerunaa (Confirmed as Braixen japanese name) — Tailunar (Teeruna) remains the same. We however believe it could be an evolution of Fennekin. Foxes are often emphasised for their tails, something the huli jing (see below) is known for. We’re uncertain whether this could be Fennekins final or first evolution.

Froakie

We believed that we could have been shown the names for one of Froakies evolutions, however looking back again it’s entirely possible that we actually got names for both of its evolutions.

Gekkouga — To begin with we believed that Gekkouga could have been a moonlight moth, from gekkou (moonlight) and ga (moth), this could still be the case (see the other theory below). However, it’s possible that gek comes again from gekogeko and kouga from the name of a school of ninjutsu.

Gekogashira (Confirmed as Frogadier japanese name) — In Japan kerokero is a common onomatopoeic term for the noise a frog makes. There is, however more than one—of which one is gekogeko, Gashira literally means head, in the sense that someone is head of something or, the boss.

Nyaonikusu(Confirmed as Mewostic japanese name)

Nyaonikusu — nyao is the sound a cat makes in Japanese, nikusu may come from sphinx. There isn’t a huge amount to say here. Number also pointed out it may have come from ‘Nyx’.

Horubii & Jigarude

Horubii and Jigarude could be connected through evolution. We still believe that Horubii to be some sort of digging bee, and the new idea for Jigarude backs that up. In Japan there’s a wasp know as a jigabachi: the red-banded sand wasp. The red-banded sand and the digger wasp (which we believe Horubii is based-off) are also part of the same family.

It's still not 100% confirmed, but this name are potential leaks as well, and I must say they make a lot of sense based on what we now the will end up looking.

I might be wrong, but i belive the letter "U" doesn't have a clear sound on their language so "Mafokushii" should sound like "Mafokshii"
