    Eh, why not? I'll through a name into the ring.

    Mascanid

    The name I came up with come from the Latin word Masca (ghost) and Canid (or Canidae, the family that foxes belong to). Also, Masca sounds a lot like mask. There's my submission... like it or not.

    I've got something solid going, I think. One was more fitting for Dougs, but not horrible here. This is the one I chose.

    Kitsunoh. [Kit-soo-no] (Kitsune + Noh) Kitsune is the Japanese name for Fox. Noh is the Japanese masked theater on which No Face, the inspiration for the mask design, was based. Essentailly, its a Fox Mask that doesn't sound completely lame.

    Addendum:
    Kit can also mean toolkit, which is what a scout would use, or a cat. Noh is really the cultural reference I was shooting for, Kitsune just flows nicely into it. "Kit" is also an apt abbreviation, hehehehe

    I really like Kitsunoh, but you kinda have to figure out that it comes from the word Kitsune or else it looks REALLY wierd.


    Also Steller has a pretty sig.

    If you really want Kit can also mean toolkit, which is what a scout would use, or a cat. Noh is really the cultural reference I was shooting for, Kitsune just flows nicely into it. "Kit" is also an apt abbreviation, hehehehe

    Weresatz

    Werewolf+Ersatz (fake). Also has resemblance to the phrase "Where's it at?", a question a scout usually answers.

    I'll go with this for now; I might think of a better one later.

    Also, I liked Fauxfox. The lexical pun is quite nice.

    Sentraith (Sentry + Wraith) ; Final Submission

    Sentry

    " a person/pokemon employed to watch for something to happen "Sentry is a scouting term.

    Wraith

    " a mental representation of some haunting experience " Wraith makes it spooky and the term wraith just fits in with the picture.

    Masquaped

    Even though I think if you have to explain it, it's probably not a good name, the name is a combo of masquerade and quadruped. Actually I think this is probably not a good name.

    Spectrox

    (Spectral+ Fox)

    Something spectral...something ghostly, or not living/ errie. Don't think anyone would want to accidentally run into this creature at night. And of course, following the whole fox thing. I like that Kitsunoh one though-kind of makes me think that would be it's Japanese name.

    Wolfguise

    This one is simple. Wolf because it's a wolf. Guise because of its (dis)guise. It wouldn't be the first time something used "-guise" to sound awesome.

    I was thinking about Fantacier.

    Fant is part of the word "ghost" in spanish and/or french. (Fantasma/Fantome).

    Acier means "Steel" in french.

    And the whole word (Fantacier) sounds like "Fantasy" or "Phantom" which goes with the design. I liked it ^^

    Barghest, the legendary Black Dog of England itself.

    It's a freaking ghostly canine, it makes a whole lot of sense in my head. People are using canine based name, so why can't we use this?

    For those who are too lazy to click the worded link, here's the low down on it's origin.

    Sentraith sounds like a suitable name for a Pokemon like this. I'll have to agree with Crafty Veteran.

    Dox-Dox. (Dark-Fox)I find that by repeating the name it shows how this Pokemon reappears many times on a team, he doesnt just come in and die, he'll switch and be a diverse part. Plus, I think it sounds cool.
