Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

What's the deal with naming Pokemon?

0 votes

So, the games constantly talk about 'naming' Pokémon. Like in the mansion on Cinnabar Island, one of the diary entries said something about naming Mew's child 'Mewtwo'. And apparently, Charon named Rotom. But in the anime the Pokémon says their own names. Did the trainers somehow brainwash all the Pokémon to obey the names they were given? Or is the anime being stupid, as usual?

You know, it could also just be as simple as them naming the Pokemon based on what they hear.
What people shouldn't get mixed up as we have said over and over and over and over again

THE ANIME =/= THE GAMES

despite there being some relevant similarities, when judging over several cases is pretty silly. In the games this makes sense because Pokemon don't repeat their names as a cry, in spite of what they do, do in the anime

Seeing as Mewtwo was created by Man, it is ever so likely to abide to the name it is always referred to, that being said, the Mewtwo in the anime were pretty silent.

Thanks. This is what I was thinking, but I wasn't sure
