I've said this in some of the other threads, and I hope so.

I actually kinda like it's look, but that name is killing me. xD

It could also be the French name
It's like walking up to a girl you really like, going in for a kiss, only to get a casual punch to the face before the kiss.

But if it's the French name, then why is the rest in English?

For some reason, I'm getting flashbacks to the pre-BW days, where there was a screenshot that showed Pansage, Pansear, and Panpour in a triple battle, and it clearly showed their English names, but Bulbapedia didn't update their pages with the names, because "they could have been nicknames" or something like that.

Also, Frogue is a pretty boring name. At least they tried with Greninja.

Nothing at all to stop you from nicknaming Greninja, "Frogue."

thanks i didn't think of that because i'm really dumb and haven't played pokemon before so i can't comprehend the concept of nicknaming.
