GameFAQs will let anything on the front page these days.

And I'm not just talking about the popular forum threads section. I'm talking about shit like this. "Creative" Pokémon names? In what alternate universe does the author live? These aren't "creative", they aren't "really good names" like the final paragraph wants you to swallow... in fact, they're some of the WORST! They suck so much even a black hole couldn't escape them! What about Milotic? Ampharos? Ariados?

  1. What next would be for this user to say that Alucard is a creative name.

    Who has the worst name for a Pokemon? I'm guessing the winning Pokemon would be from Gen 1 or Gen 5.

    1. Gen 1 would be the odds-on favorite due to the sheer number of bad ones, but yeah, most of the others that are really bad are from gen 5.

  2. Apparently spelling "snake" and "cobra" backwards is clever. Also the guy spelled "Swampert" wrong.

    Well, at least the people on the Top 10 board think it's a waste of space too.

    Though I'm kind of wondering why they decided to post a list made FIVE YEARS AGO.

    1. They do so a lot, it seems. There are rarely, if ever, any recent lists.

  3. Some of these names made me want to puke (Combusken anyone?) Why the fuck are Ekans and Arbok on the list? Backwards naming is the laziest naming process ever.

  4. The name itself contradicts itself. "Creative yet unimaginative"?

    1. Not unimaginative, "unimaginable". He's saying that the names are so clever that nobody else could have possibly thought of them.

  5. GameFAQs confirmed to NOT have a satisfactory functioning brain!
    Seriously... Wha... I... *THIS* MADE THE FRONT PAGE?! I knew that idiocy ran rampant on GameFAQs, but... This is taking the 'Slowpoke meme' approach in the completely wrong direction if this is a joke(which I DOUBT it is). Isn't it a tad too early to be pulling April Fools jokes, GameFAQs?

  6. What did you expect from GameFAQs? People on that website spend all their time swinging from chandeliers, trying to eat bricks, and chasing squirrels. Did you really expect intelligence from them?
