    I like Tuliette for Churine. Also, I like Churine. :) I've had one on my team since I was first able to have it. What would the evolution be?

    As for Monmen, I like Ocelot's "Poofle." Nothing else quite seems to fit.

    Anyway, the link on the main site brings you to the forums, but the link in the article itself brings you to the forums for Round 2. You might want to fix that.

    I am terrible at naming things... but I want that puffy one on my team. It looks adorkable.

    As a note, Liliadam comes from combining the Liliaceae family, of which tulips are a member, with Amsterdam. Gotta give a shoutout to my Dutch homies. Word up, Nederlands!

    I rather like Ocelot's "Liliadam" for Churine, especially now that you've explained the origins behind it. Pretty clever. As for Monmen, I got a kick out of Sabin's "Stuffywhats." XD

    Bleh, knew I'd forgotten something. Fixed.

    I think Liliadam would be good for Churine's evolution, Doredia. So, Tuliette --> Liliadam. It could also be considered a takeoff of Lilia, a popular girl's name, and Damsel.

    Anyway, behold the power of Doredia. It's SOOOOO strong (at least in the first part of the game).

    It's not shabby in the endgame, either. I managed to take down an Elite 4 member with just Doredia, Butterfly Dance, Petal Dance, a bit of luck and a whole lot of desperation.

    Wheen i get a Monmon, im naming it Woolbur. For Wool, cuz it looks like a sheep, and bur, like Cotton bur. Also it sounds like Wilbur. Anyway, I know It wont be Puffpuff, cuz im pretty sure that has some kind of dirty connotation in Japanese, I think.

    Well, Puffpuff has dirty connotations in the Dragon Quest series, at least.

    I'm pretty sure the DQ guys invented puff-puff as a blanket euphemism, and it sorta caught on as a meme in Japan.
