We should give credit to the guys that come up with the English Pokemon names

We really should. We know that many of the names aren't even close to the Japanese versions... I'm assuming anyway. So I would personally like to give credit to the people that come up with the English names and lump them to our English terms to make them make sense. Think about it.... Abra, Kadabra, Alakazam, Machop, Machoke, Machamp, Beedrill, Ponyta, Caterpie, Graveler, etc.

Most of the names relate to something we know. I know many of the Japanese names aren't even close so I would like to give credit to those who came up with the English names. That is all

Bossgodora and Blacky >>> Muk (especially backwards) and Sawk

Most gen 1 names are great though

Blacky is such a terrible name for any pokemon, but I do like the name Bossgodora

I think the Abra line was named to avoid naming them after people?

Houdin
