All of the Region names have at least one O in them?

Kanto
Johto
Hoenn
Sinnoh
Unova

I wonder if Nintendo did this on purpose, and if they'll stay true to it with the next region?

The Zerg Swarm came, as was foretold.

Not surprising, given there are only 5 vowels (6 if you count y).


And the Protoss, firstborn of the gods, rose to fight them.

Not quite. Unlike the rest of the regions, Unova is not Unova everywhere:
Japan - Isshu
Germany - Einall
France - Unys

THIS, however, Gamefreak did on purpose. Whether they do this with Gen 6's France-expy is unknown at this time. smile

This makes no sense whatsoever. A new vowel cannot be created, unless the entire alphabet where to be altered.

Really? Here I was under the impression that Romani vowels were created by people and had things taken away and added that weren't there before. Odd..

Yay smart girl in the Pokeforum! Love it! But yeah, the OP didn't think about that, I often forget it's really Isshu. I wonder why the changed, perhaps Unova, U-ni-ted... IDK haha

I was referring to the English vowels. If to say 39 states ratifies the change of vowels, then yes, it should be able to change.

Agreed with this. Never really noticed before, but it's not mind boggling really.

It makes sense if you read it as sarcasm.
