    Hihidaruma already has an English name. It's "Darmanitan." There a list of several English Black and White Pokemon names here, though not all of them are there (the Starters and the box legendaries aren't there).

    Darnit, that wasn't available when I wrote this over Christmas >_< That has been noted on the page. *sigh*

    At least the next pair I had in mind haven't been named yet.

    Hey, it happens. This looks like it will be an interesting feature, anyway, and I look forward to the next installment.

    I do find it kind of funny how fire+primate names were guessed, but the actual name seems to combine Daruma with orangutan.

    I'm surprised they included Darma in the English name. Would have thought that'd be too oblique a reference.

    for no reason at all.

    Hmmm... I participated in a game like this over on Pokecommunity. Unfortunatley, my names for the trio of elemental monkeys: Oakkey, Smokkey, and Soakkey, were not used. :'( I'll definitely get involved in this though!

    There's a whole mess of newly revealed English names here, just for future reference.
