NEW: This is a Celebration CAP, meaning that we are going out of our way to break some rules. We'll be creating a set of three Pokemon this time around, a set of Fire, Water, and Grass-type starters! You can read exactly which rules we'll be breaking here and the logic behind Celebration CAPs here. Give these a read-through to get some context.

CAP 25 Grass-type name submissions: https://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/cap-25-part-10-cap-25g-name-submissions.3642021/
CAP 25 Fire-type name submissions https://www.smogon.com/forums/threads/cap-25-part-10-cap-25f-name-submissions.3642023/

If you are inspired by the winning art design and have come up with a good and unique name you'd like the CAP to be known by, please submit your idea here and we will put it up for a vote against all other users' ideas. Final submissions must conform to the submission rules, so please read them carefully. Breaking the posting rules can also result in disqualification.

RULES:

Legal name submissions must meet the following standards
  • Names must start with a capital letter.
  • Names cannot be longer than 12 letters.
  • Names can only contain the following characters:
    • Letters A-Z
    • Numbers 1-9
    • Dash (-)
    • Apostrophe (')
    • Period (.)
    • Colon (:)
    • Space
  • No more than two capital letters can be included in the name, and capital letters cannot be consecutive.
  • A maximum of two non-letters can be included in the name, and a maximum of one non-letter of each type can be included (ie. You can't have two numbers, or two apostrophes, but you could have one number and one apostrophe)

Names will not be slated if they are completely unrelated to the design, silly names (puns are fine), names based primarily on memes, or names meant to inflame, intimidate, or cause controversy.

WIPs
Work In Progress (WIP) Names can be posted at any time for comments from the community.

No more than three WIP Names can be posted by any individual person through the entire course of the submission thread. This limit applies to ALL posts made by a single person, even if previous posts are edited or deleted. This limit is intended to curb the tendency for some submitters to spam the thread repeatedly with lists of Names. This detracts from other submissions and makes it difficult for commenters to survey the submission thread.

Do not bump your WIP names by posting them repeatedly, or making minor spelling changes of a letter or two. Bumping will result in the disqualification of all names by the offender. Editing or deleting bump posts will not prevent disqualification.

Final Submissions
Only ONE Final Submission can be made per person. Any Final Submission that does not follow the proper format will be disqualified.

Name Final Submissions can only be posted after a CAP Moderator posts in the thread announcing that final submissions are open. Any Final Submission posted prior to the Moderator announcement post will disqualify the submitter from the poll entirely. Even if the offending post is edited later or deleted, the submitter will still be disqualified for the remainder of the thread. This ensures that there is some time for discussion and that all submitters have equal opportunity to post Final Submissions without anyone unfairly "jumping the gun".

Please make a new post after the CAP moderator announcement for Final Submissions. Do not edit a previous post prior to the announcement to make it a Final Submission. All posts prior to the announcement post will be ignored for purposes of making the Name Poll.

Final submissions must provide one sentence (25 words maximum) explaining the etymology of the name.

Final submissions must provide a common English pronunciation. The common pronunciation can be made in whatever format you feel best conveys the pronunciation to most English speakers. (You may optionally also provide an IPA pronunciation. For information about IPA and processing words into IPA read this guide: IPA For English. There are also numerous phonetic translation tools online that can help.)

Format
Name Final Submissions must be posted exactly in the following format and in the following exact order:
  • The first line of the post must have the words "Final Submission" in bold on its own line. No other text may be included before the bold heading.
  • A blank line
  • The Name submission in bold.
  • A blank line
  • A one line description of the etymology of the name or why it is appropriate for our Pokemon. (25 words maximum)
  • A blank line
  • "Pronounced: <common English pronunciation>"
  • "IPA: <IPA pronunciation>" (optional)
Below the Final Submission you can post other comments, explanations, etc.

Example final submission:
Final Submission

Syclant

A combination of "Icicle" + "Ant".

Pronounced: "SICKLE-ant"
IPA: sɪkəlænt

This name was originally submitted by Lawman on the very first CAP project. It is simple, elegant, and easy to pronounce (even if you are pronouncing it wrong), which is why it was chosen as the official name for CAP1!

Simple enough. Two great words that taste great together. :)

Majesthorn (1/3)

"Majestic" + "horn" or "thorn"

Pronounced: "Muh-JES-thorn"

This name combines the majestic stance of this creature with the presence of thorns (or, spiky leaves I guess) and obviously the big antlers it has.

---

Ceravolt (2/3)

"Megaloceros" (extinct genus of deer) + "Volt"

Pronounced: "SEH-ra-volt"

Thundruid

"Thunder" + "Druid"

Pronounced: "Thun-DRU-id" (at least i hope so)

Magi said it had druid-sort inspiration, and the thunder is rather obvious.
 

Deck Knight

Reality Saves Lives. Fantasy Destroys Them.

Voltaielk

"Voltaic" cells absorb light to create energy [galvanism], plants also use light for energy [photosynthesis] + "Elk".

Prounounced: "Volt-EY-elk"
IPA: vol-tey-elk

Antupã

Pronounced: "an-tu-PUN"
IPA: "æn-tu-pʌn"

"Antler + Tupã"

Called "the thunder spirit", Tupã is the great creator of the skies, the land and the seas, as well as the animal and vegetal worlds in the brazilian folklore. He taught agriculture to the men and taught the pajés all his knowledge about medicinal plants and magic healing rituals. It fits the concept beautifully, being related to both the nature and the thunders (Grass/Electric) and gives a fantastic mythological vibe to the concept.

I'm sorry, I keep looking at the nose and seeing a famous red nosed reindeer :P

WIP (2/3)

Dakkaribou

"Dakka" + "Caribou"

Deerampere

Combines "Deer" + "ampere"

Pronounced: "DEER-am-PEER"

Just an easy an fun to say name that rhymes while using the animal it's based off of and using ampere as an electric term.

Sparkideer

Spark + Deer, also a reference to the mascot of the Pet Mod "Pokemon: The New First Gen" (got permission to use the name)

Pronounced: "Spark-uh-deer"
 

Reiga

WIP

Kinetikelk

"Kinetic" + "Elk"

Pronounced: Ki-NET-ik-elk

As a speedy thunder elk, this CAP releases tons of kinetic energy, relating to it being fast and electric. Alongside this, guns like the railgun on its antlers shoot high power bullets using kinetic energy.

WIP

Gigahortz

"Giga" + "Gigahertz" + "Horti(culture)"

Pronounced: Gi-guh-HOR-tz

Links the ginourmous nature of the irish elk (literally named Megaloceros giganteus), the electrical undertones, and also the grass type.


WIP

Couribou

"Coulomb" + "Caribou"

Pronounced: COH-ruh-boo

Coulomb, the international unit for electrical charge, + caribou, which resemble the irish elk.


gee billy, how come your mom lets you post three wips
 
WIP

Antlerture

Comes from Antler, the horns on a deer; and Armature, a part in electric motors and the protective covering of an animal or plant (in this case it's both).

Pronounced: "Ant-lurr-churr"
 

Granny Pie

Mafia Champion
WIP

Magnetelk

Pronounced: mag-NET-elk
IPA: <ˈmæɡnətɛlk>

Whether pronounced correctly, sounding like mag-NET-elk, or pronounced incorrectly, like MAG-net-elk (the difference is on the emphasis), is still sounds good and gets across the message of an deer with a charged magnet on its head.

Lightningroe

Pronounced: LITE-ning-row
IPA: <'laɪtnɪŋroʊ>

The antlers on his head, which could easily be lightningrods attracting electricity to them and redistributing it to its Normal-type moves, and the name for the common European deer, roe, combine together to make a simple name conveying the "Electric Deer" aesthetic while also making a play on words with his looks and abilities. Even when pronounced incorrectly, like LITE-ning-grow, we still get a strong sense of identity as a Grass/Electric Pokemon.

Thorelch

Dynamoose

"Dynamo" + "moose"

Pronounced: "DIE-nuh-moose"
IPA: dɪnamus

Simple enough. Two great words that taste great together. :)
Was literally going to be my exact suggestion, it was the name of an old electric moose Fakemon from an old project I was a part of and wanted to see it be given life again!

WIP

Elkiline

Combination of Elk and Alkiline (as in the battery).

Pronounced: "Elk-ill-line"

Springshok

"Springbok" + "Shock"

Prounounced: "SPRING-shock"
IPA: /ˈsprɪŋˌʃak/
 
WIP

Elkrieg

"Elk" + "blitzkrieg"

Pronounced: "el-KREEG"

Pun on the German word for "lightning war," fitting with our Galvanize gun deer. Fits the definition of a blitzkrieg (a sudden attack) and "blitz" by association, given our mon's speed.
