Pokéxperto has posted online some supposed new Pokémon names from X & Y. The list supposedly existed before Swirlix, Spritzee and Inkay were revealed, and as such Pokéxperto believes it provides some credence to the list.
[UPD]: We’ve added translations and name breakdowns below. Please remember to take them with a grain of salt, whether from our list below or from any other source. We’ve tried our best to break down the names and find their origins, but there’s a chance that some are incorrect.
[list_item]Dianshii (ディアンシー) — Possibly a deer Pokémon. It’s name could come from deer + fancy + antsy.[/list_item]
[list_item]Hariboogu (ハリボーグ) — Most likely the evolution of Chespin — Hari (ハリ) comes from pin/needle, boogu (ボーグ) or bogue, is the name of the shell of a chestnut is French. Thanks to belmad for this tip-off![/list_item]

Pokéxperto was known for providing information that later turned out to be true before Black & White released, so we do have some reasoning for believing these could be true. As always: remember that these names are not confirmed, and should not be considered true just yet. Whether true or not we’d like to hear your opinions on these names. What do you think the Pokémon could look like?
