Although we know the boy as Kyouhei and the girl as Mei, their official names have been revealed to be Nate and Rosa (respectively)! Pretty good names in my opinion 😀 Behind the spoiler are two characters who are plot related. As Zowayix noted, these names play on the theme of “resonance” (kyoumei in Japanese) and their names sound like resonate.

Above is Shadow of the Shadow Triad, originally Dark of the Dark Trinity. We also have Alder’s grandson’s name, Benga, which was Banjirou for the Japanese release. [/spoiler]

Not much time left before the release!

Featured Thread: Types; Too many or not enough?

  • I’m actually ok with these names. I wasn’t a huge fan of the names Hilbert and Hilda for the original Black and White. I was originally gonna go with the Japanese names, but now I may stick with Nate instead of coming up with a new name. lol

  • Zowayix

    You might want to note that the English names do a good job of the original pun on the Japanese names:

    Kyouhei + Mei = Kyoumei (“resonance”)
    Rosa + Nate ~= “Resonate”

    Thanks for the news, PokéJungle!
    However, two corrections should be made:
    1•Dark Trinity is know as Shadow Triad, not Shadow Trinity.
    2•Benga is Alder’s grandson, not son.
    Everything else is perfect.

    • Thanks xD I was updating at work and about to start my shift. So hectic @@;

  • Reuniclus

    I love the protagonists’ new names. Much better than Hilbert and Hilda.

  • aoibunnysketch

    thank god i was expecting kyilbert and meilda.

  • I love their names~Anything is better then Hilda and Hilbert (sorry you two xD) now if the 7th would get here faster >o<

  • ask

    I want to know guys, how can I configure my wiifii for pkmn games? I just tried to enter password or set everything manual, but nothing worked…

    • So when it tests the connection does it work? Is it only when you’re trying to connect to a pokemon thing that it fails?

      • ask

        Yes, I can connect by wiifii to internet by browser or dsi shop ect., but in pkmn game’s I just cannot do anything…

        • Right now the PGL is down for maintenance before Black 2 and White 2 launch, so that might be why.

          • ask

            No no, I had tried even pkmn heart gold and normal pkmn black [for wiifii event] and I stuck : < I've read about different acces settings but I tried that and this didn't work, maybe I need change settings in my router or something…? [I

          • If you’re using WEP encryption for your WiFi network that might be why. I believe PKMN games are incompatible with it. I’d suggest setting your router to use WPA which I think should work, although WPA is less secure than WEP.

    Oh my god, benga… This will be such a mess in my country!

  • The names are better than Hilda and Hilbert. No one has been named that since… I don’t know: 1750? Does anyone think gamefreak should make 10 year old girls have less… developed bodies? It’s frickin’ weird.
