How do you come up with a Pokemon name?

Pokemon names typically combine a prefix and a suffix consisting of an animal name and part of an adjective or noun to make a new word. These words typically reflect the appearance and powers of the Pokemon. Some examples include:

  • Charizard – combines Char (burning) with Lizard
  • Bulbasaur – combines Bulb and Dinosaur
  • Combee – combines Combat and Bee

Then, the evolved versions of the Pokemon usually retain one part of the word while changing the other (e.g. Charmander > Charizard).
