Since this happens every gen, curious about it... Now that the English starter names are confirmed, will you begin using them exclusively, keep using the Japanese names, or use both versions of the names interchangeably? The same can be said for all future revealed names. If your first language isn't English, tell us how you plan to use your first language's names verses the English/Japanese names, too. Edit-note: I'm not asking about your opinions related to the quality of the names here, just how you use 'em. I'll admit that when new names are revealed, I do try to use them as much as possible. That way when the games are finally out in NA, they feel more familiar and less alien. That said, I don't suddenly pretend the Japanese names don't exist and I'll continue to use 'em when appropriate or interchangeably. Sometimes when I'm discussing the Japanese Pokémon Anime series I'll use the Japanese critter/character names because they're fresh in my mind. So, what about you guys? P.S. - Keep the outright name bashing to another topic, plzkthx. P.P.S - Keep the "people are stupid for disliking the English names" bashing to another topic, too, kthx.
