Pokemon name generator

This name generator will give you 10 random names for Pokemon or for Pokemon characters, depending on your choice.

So let me start of by saying I've only played Pokemon up until about generation 3, though I do recognize some generation 4 Pokemon. Back then the names were all pretty straight forward. I noticed as the generations go on, the names start become seemingly more random.
I've stuck to the more straight forward way of naming Pokemon, which is to pretty much alter the name of an animal or other 'being' (slime's not really a being, but we got Muk and such).

The names have been divided into 2 categories. The first 8 names are random combinations of 2 parts which together form a Pokemon-like name. Not all combinations will make sense, but that's the nature of a random generator.
The last 2 names will be 2 out of 222 names I made up by altering the names of animals, plants and even fruits and vegetable in a Pokemon-like way. Some are better than others, but my personal favorites are 'Beauty-Rex', 'Frostritch', 'Oysterminate' and to fit in with the weirder, newer Pokemon (like that key-chain), 'Recyclops'.
These last 2 names are also where user submitted names will be generated.

I've also added character names, which are mostly aimed at Gym Leaders, as regular characters have regular names. So do some Gym Leaders, but many have names related to the type of Pokemon they use, which is the same types of names I've used here.
The first 3 gym leader names are male, the next 4 are neutral and the last 3 are female.

Lastly, if you wish to expand upon the existing Pokemon types, click the third button to get a randomized list of all sorts of possibilities ranging from god to dream, and from sleep to chaos.

To start, simply click on the button to generate 10 random names. Don't like the names? Simply click again to get 10 new random names.
