WIP

Aurmonious


From "aurum", the Latin term for gold, and "harmonious", referring to the balance theme of the design.

Pronounced: "Oar-MOW-nee-us"
 
WIP

Balansol


A combination of the words balance scale and Sol, the Latin word for sun, in reference to Doom Desire being a light-based attack. Also includes a corruption of the word soul, in reference to the ancient Egyptian "weighing of the heart" ceremony, wherein Anubis would weigh one's heart upon a scale with the feather of Ma'at, as one's heart was considered to house their soul.
 
Final Submission

Ferrolibrium


The Latin Ferro "containing iron", and the Zodiac symbol, Libra, which is represented by a scale, derived from the Latin Libra, "balance"

Pronounced Fair-uh-li-brie-umm
IPA: <fɛrʌˈlɪbɹɪəm>

WIP

Arbil


Just Libra backwards, but also kinda fits the theme in a roundabout way with counting back to one. IDK, I just thought it looked nice.

Pronounced AR-bill



Otherwise I am a huge fan of Equilibra, it rolls off the tongue very nicely and is a great combining of words fitting the theme of the mon
Also really like Auricle for the same reasons, but it's just not quite as on the nose to me.
 
WIP

Evilibrium


Evil + equilibrium (also contains libra)

ee-vil-lih-bree-um

As a side note, I can’t help but think all these justice-related names are really cliched. This Pokemon is supposed to be the bringer of doom, not an avenger for justice

Moderator Announcement:

This thread is now open for Final Submissions.


Please read the OP formatting rules very carefully. Any final submission that does not EXACTLY follow the prescribed format, will be disqualified without warning.

The Name slate will be constructed collectively by the CAP moderators. As stated in the OP, we will not slate names that 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.

Best of luck!

Thanks to Darquezze, Deck Knight, Mova, and Sunfished for the help with the decision!

legend slayer has asked for permission to submit the WIP name I did not submit, Libracotta, and I've granted that permission to him. ^^

  • DougJustDoug: I think Auricle is a great name, but I'm a little less fond of it since we have another gold 'CAP mon that uses the same root word, Aurumoth.
  • Oglemi, your name is simple but very effective. I'm a fan of how the backwards name works for this 'mon. :)
 
Final Submission

Horrorscope


A play on "horoscope", deriving from Libra, and "horror", owing to the Lovecraftian nature of the all-seeing ancient artifact projecting its power across time.

Pronounced: HAR-er-scope

Final Submission

Weightferrit



"Weight" + "wait for it" + "ferrous"

Pronounced: "wayt-feh-riht"

IPA: <weɪtferɪt>

Scales use weights, you have to wait for a Room Desire to hit and steel is a ferrous metal
