What are name origins of all Sun and Moon Pokemon?

asked by
By SM Pokemon, do you mean all the Pokemon in SM, all the Pokemon obtainable in SM, or all the Pokemon introduced in SM?
The person probably means all the Pokemon introduced in S/M.
You can find a name origin for every pokemon by simply looking it up on this site. It is a Pokemon database after all.

They aren't added for the gen 7 Pokemon yet...
