Default Zorua and Zoroark confirmed as English names

Poké updated today to show Zorua and Zoroark as the confirmed English names, which are the same as the officially trademarked Japanese names.

Zorua and Zoroark have English names for their signature moves, Zorua's Foul Play and Zoroark's Hone Claws.

Yay. At least for these two, people won't complain about having to change the official name by which they identify .

Hone Claws? Claw Sharpen was nice enough, thank you. :V

But at least the main news is good! I didn't want some lame English translation like Nitefox or something, so keeping being able to keep using Zoroark is very good news.

Well I don't mind the name is the same since we already got use to it anyway and it would have a awkward name after something like an animal. The sig moves are strange. When I think of Hone Claws, it reminds me of sonic and foul play sounds like what a skunk do after it get scared.

I can't say I'm a fan of "hone claws", but I'm glad Zorua and Zoroark are the English names. Foul Play sounds like a good name for a move, as well.

Foul Play = awesome move name. Hone Claws is good. I'm glad Zorua and Zoroark are the same, though they shouldn't do that too much.

Weird earlier when I was on Bulbapedia I wondered why the name for Trickery got changed.

I guess it's okay they keep there original names.

Thank god that their names stayed the same. I didn't look up on the moves too much so these moves are new to me. They work, though.

Well, one of the few pokemon that I liked as soon as I saw it (instead of needing to get used to it first) gets to keep it's name. Makes Tepig look even worse tbh.

Well, I'm sure we'll all get used to Tepig and Hone Claws eventually, just like we would of if Zorua was changed to Darfox. (Though Zorua is obviously preferred)

Good thing it didn't have a crappy name as the offense but those starter names weren't exciting.... XD

Hmm, good. I'm glad they kept Zorua and Zoroark as names (as long as they don't mispronounce them). Hone Claws and Foul Play are OK, I guess. I don't mind.

Heh, I kinda figured these would be the English names. Anyways, success Nintendo. Let's hope you succeed in the other names. None of that Tepig crap Nintendo. =P

I'm so glad their names stayed the same, I really like the names. Zoroark's signature move however, it needs a new name so badly.
