    I genuinely think this is the most beautiful name, though I would be happy with either of the others (for different reasons, though)

    It invokes gold, the colour of angels, the aura of psychic power, and of course the moth, traditionally a symbol of the spirit and the soul - indeed, the Ancient Greek for "moth" is the same as that for "mind" or "spirit", as I explained in the submissions thread. Incidentally, if you are one of those people in the previous thread who asked "why a moth?", this is why. All three of these names go a lot deeper than the mere appearance of the Pokemon, remember that (though in different ways).

    Good luck to all contestants.

    I just hope people realize what awful names Sephimoth and Retriarch are.

    Anything but Sephimoth... <.<

    Anyway I think the reason for the grievances of the slate is that it's hard to see obscure references as equivalent or even relevant to "intellectual challenge". Looking stuff up requires less "intellect" and more, well, researching ability.
