It felt weird at first for me too, but now it seems silly to capitalise it for me. xD

That's what I think is stupid about the anime/games...they don't encourage you to name your pokemon. Whereas Neopets, for instance, makes you name your neopet, and all neopets have names. They're not called "Kacheek" and "Aisha," they have names. Flareon and pikachu and archeops--they're all species names, not name names. Dx But people don't see it that way, it seems. As encouraged by the anime/games.

I think one of the main reasons I don't give my Pokemon names is because they don't really encourage it. XD And I get it. :P

Btw, you capitalized Flareon. XD
