Top Ten Coolest Pokemon Names


The Top Ten

1 Umbreon Umbreon

Wow this is the most swag pokemon I have ever seen in my life. I'm not much of a pokemon fan but now I love it!

A total ace in the anime, it looks really cool, and its pretty strong.

I think of it as a cross between the latin word umbra which means shadow and the word neon cause of his neon rings

Coolest name for sure. Although I nickname mine after Hammurabi, because of the synchronize ability. "An eye for an eye; a tooth for a tooth."
