Foreign Pokemon naming customs and evolution..?

Alright, say I've got a German Aipom with its default name for that territory (Griffel). If I train it until it evolves, does it become a standard English-named Ambipom, a German-named Ambipom (Ambidiffel), or does it just stay "Griffel"?

I've been wondering this because I would be disappointed knowing that its name would in reality be Aipom in another language if it evolved into an Ambipom named Griffel...but I've never known for sure.

It will change to Ambipom. the game will revert languages to whatever language is set for the person. If it is nicknamed it will stay tho.

Source: I had a Japanese Ivysaur that evolved.

Your Aipom(Griffel) will evolve into Ambipom, without a foreign name, though you're free to nickname it Ambidiffel. Since it's from Germany, I suspect it will keep the German mark on it, though.

Can't nickname a Pokemon that doesn't have your OT.
