Well, I prefer both, cause sometimes, I don't like the sounds(^^)
Like Articuno, its Japanese name is Furizar

Japanese right now, but everyone will be used to the English names eventually. I think the English names could be more creative or better thought out though...

Japanese, I can pronounce more Fifth generation Pokémon in Japanese than in English.

Definitely Japanese. The english names were uninspired.

The aroma from the flower decoration on it's head has a relaxing effect. It will wither if it is not cared for.

English names are a bit more memorable but Japanese definitely sound better.

Well, we don't really know all the english names, we just know a few of them. And those weren't that good, in my opinion... I hope all the other english names turns out better. d:
Most of the Japanese names, Meloetta, Aianto and Chiraamii for example, sounds nice (IMO), and those are fun to pronounce, too! xD So, yeah, for me, it has to be Japanese, for now at least.

I like Japanese names for 5th generation, 4th, 3d, 2nd, and in some cases, 1st. Basically I favor the Japanese names. I can pronounce them better, and I mispronounce most english names.

And I live in Washington.

I like both. English names closer to the first few generations, Japanese ones for the later ones. I mean, c'mon, Blitzle (or however you spell it)? That's not as fun to say nor does it sound as epic as SHIMAMA!! xD
