Sm Luigi Hitmonchan and Hitmonlee: The reason behind the names

I can't believe I never noticed this until today.

Hitmonchan = As in Jackie Chan

Hitmonlee = As in Bruce Lee

People might know this already, but I only just found out, and think it's pretty cool.

He spins like a Top.

Also note that their fighting styles are switched, since Chan's style is much kickier, and Lees is punchier.

How about the ArticUNO, ZapDOS, and MolTRES. Spanish numbers uno, dos, tres. And Ekans name backward is Snake and Arbok is Kobra. And Squirtle's name is like Squirt + Turtle. Turtwig = Turtle + twig. Pikachu = Peek-a-boo + a-choo. Ok I made that one up but sounds cool right? I think Pikachu is like Thunder in Japanese though.

Regigigas! It was named after Reggie Fils-Aime its obvious. I mean Regigigas is GIANT and so is Reggie.

Wow, that 's awesome, the Spanish numbers thing. I like the Pikachu idea, too.

I'm going to flick through the pokedex now, just to try and find hidden meanings in names and stuff. Like Kangaskhan = Kangaroo + Skank! Maybe.

LOL. That's funny. Maybe Jackie Chan was the one who invented them.
