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:
CAP 25 Fire-type name submissions
CAP 25 Water-type name submissions:

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.


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.

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.)

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


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!

"Arch"/"Archon" + "chiton" + "Triton".

Pronounced: "ar-KAI-ton"
IPA: ɑɹkaɪtən

I wanted to give the Triton snail a name befitting a lord of the seas. I went with "Archon", as it a word for "ruler" sounds awesome and fits nicely with "chiton" (a species of mollusc) and "Triton" (the species of snail CAP 25w is based on).

"Conqueror" + "Coral"

Pronounced: "con-COR-al"

Fitting of a grand ruler of the deep coral reefs, whose species is named after the great Triton, I thought of a name that would captured such power, thus the word conqueror! "Concheror" is already a TF2 weapon, so I discarded that quickly, but with how great of a connection this has to coral, mixing in that word was possibly way more fitting.

"Poseidon (Greek god of the ocean)" + "Charonia (scientific name of the creature CAPw is based on)"



From "Triton" and "potentate", a monarch or ruler, especially an autocratic one.

Pronounced: "TRY-ton-TAYTE"


Marine + regalia, cus it wears the marine life (coral) on its back like clothing

cool names so far, pls just remember that conch is a different type of snail and the design is based off of a giant triton! ty!


The combination of Snail and Lord, because of its authoritary air. Not a wonderful name, but I wanted to do something for my first CAP project!


Escargot + Carrion
Pronounced: Es-Care-Ia

Carrion is the decaying flesh of dead animals which is in reference to Poison Heal. The giant triton isn't a scavenger, but Toxapex probably tastes like decaying flesh.

Combined from Coral, Galatea, said to be most beautiful of the Nereids who was the love interest of a jealous Cyclops Arghonaut, *cough*, and Reef.
