English names for Black & White starters revealed
Pokémon Black & White — 23 November, 2010
Nintendo has revealed the English names of a few pokemon from the upcoming Pokemon Black and Pokemon White games.
Tsutarja, the Grass starter, will be known as Snivy. This is mostly likely a combination of the words 'snake' and 'ivy'. Pokabu, the Fire starter, will be known as Tepig, a cross between 'tepid' and 'pig'. Of course, it's evolution is far from tepid. Mijumaru, the Water starter, will be known as Oshawott. The name has references to 'otter', 'water' and possibly 'ocean'.
The region, previously known as Isshu in the Japanese version, will be called Unova.
Nintendo has also unveiled their new dedicated website, PokemonBlackWhite.com. However, it's very light on details since they are choosing to release information in dribs and drabs instead of telling us what we all already know...
