You are right, Pochama is a better name than Piplup.

Piplup... Piplup... Luplip... Pochama.

Piplup really sounds like pick up, but I'll live with these names... somehow....

EDIT: Turtwig has CLOROPHYLL instead of OVERGROW?! O_O

Well... while overgrow can have its advantages near the middle of the game, chlorophyll, which raises speed in sunny weather, might actually come in handy seeing as daodaitos is far from being a speed dedmon, also, when you have solar beam, you get to hit in one move...

I can't imagine Turtwig has clorophyll? I think that could be a mistake as each type of starter has always shared the same ability. Should be overgrow.

Yeah, I think it's a mistake too.

As for the names, they're bad. But I thought the same of Sudowoodo's name back in Johto and Bonsly and Weavile this time and I'm used to them all now, so I suppose I'll get used to these ones too. I still wish they gave Turtwig a better name though =/

It still could have been Naetle. =|

PokÚmon.com site update: They switched Turtwig's ability to Overgrow now. Who the heck is doing the site anyway?!
