Default Gonbe's US name and Movie 7 US Title

It's been revealed that Gonbe's American name is Munchlax (revealed at the Pokemon Rocks America event) and the dubbed title for the 7th movie is

Pokemon: Destiny Deoxys.

(My pardons if this has already been mentioned anywhere here already).

Eh... The only good names are reverse phonetic translations. Absol, Kingdra, Nidoking, Groudon, etc are just translations of their Japanese names (Abusoru, Kingudora, Nidokingu, Guroudon, etc).

Munchlax is definately not phonetic. : /

Er... The Japanese names are translations of the English ones into Katakana, but because they can't translate it so its the same as we say/write it, there are 'u's and 'o's after things that wouldnt normally be ther in the englaish name.

I can already see its Pokedex entry...

"Eats everything. Eats until it weighs over a ton, and evolves into Snorlax where it sleeps all the time" lol, something like that. =P

I don't personally like its English name. Gonbe was better.
Ierdar, I was more thinking:
"Eats until it can eat no more in preparation for hibernation. It enters a deep sleep which sees it become lazy and evolve due to its new found weight."

This is sounding familiar? Yeah, I was reading this yesterday:
http://www.dragonflycave.com/butterfree/guess.aspx
ppl said how stupid most (if not all) the English R/S names were but after months passed most ppl excepted them. IMO I think Munchlax is horrible too. Its jest not creative enough.

This is why I didn't become too attached to his obviously-going-to-change name.

The reason they changed his name is because it wouldn't make any sense otherwise. Snorlax is "Kabigon" in Japanese; Munchlax is "Gonbe. You can't mix and match them; they both correspond to their country's counterpart. Had they left it the way it was, you'd have kids with games telling them "GONBE evolved into SNORLAX!" lol, how weird would that be? Point: It just doesn't work.

And the name, however stupid it may sound, is logical, at least. What do these monsters do? Well, two things: eat (munch) and sleep (snore).
