Holy samurott sushi! No wonder everyone calls Natural N! What an unusual name for a kid. I just never see a kid walk into a school with a name tag that says, Hi I'm Natural! Best that we just call him N still.

As much as I appreciate N actually having a full name...I don't get it.

I think the deal is that he's supposed to be the saviour of modern Pokémon or something, so his name is all 'Oh hai I'm basically Jesus so let me help all yalls' but them it's like 'Oh hai my personality is all grimdark and misleading and I'm actually tearing you apart Lisa emotionally, LOL'

Gropius

Is that just me or does that sound disturbing

Also Ghetsis said N's last name was Harmonia so what up with the Gropius anyway

Well, If I didn't know any better, I'd say that'd be the name of a
nerdy hippie.

And yes, I'd imagine that for females,
the name Gropius would be very disturbing.

Interesting stuff nonetheless. I kinda wanna mock his name though.

So you mean to tell me Mr. Natural is going out with Johnny's girlfriend?
Holy hell. Get out of the room.

(Last part's not an insult by the way.)

I think this is one of the weirdest names in video games, not just Pokémon... I wonder what they were thinking? But it does make a lot of sense.

Seems like the "Gropius" part is actually based of someone in real life...

If I have a son, his name shall either be "Natural", or simply "N".

...I am quite aware that that is weird.

Thinking about it, maybe this is the reason why N never reveals his full name - it's too embarrassing and funny!

When Gray comes out I want this to be a central plot point some how some way.

I do have a good feeling that this will become a plot point in one way or another in the third game. Or, if they are really trying, somewhere else?

Do you mind explaining? I am very confused by his name...

Yeah, I'm also inclined to believe that revealing this information is not just for the sake of getting to know N. I hope they're going to incorporate this into the next (main) title.

The name is actually all one word, all meaning "Natural" in two other different languages as well as English.

That's some Inception plot twist right there.

Also, I can't help but go into an immature giggle when saying "Gropius". ;>
