Vivillon's name is a portmanteau of "papillon," which is the french word for butterfly. People align the "Vi-" syllable with Japanese, but I dunno, the pronunciation sounds like "vie," the French word for life. Maybe not. Whatever!

Sure is great to make another review. Sorry for my absence; been very busy and procrastinating! I'd like to introduce you to the next era of Shadow Pokemon. Pokemon XD, Gale of Darkness. You should remember my last review, Pokemon Colosseum. Well, not sure if Nintendo took fan service or tried to piss people off. I liked this game, but it was flawed much more than its predecessor.
Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness is the next Gamecube installment of the series. That's somewhat not surprising, since the series always goes from one story installment to the sequel.. Gale of Darkness retains the basic Pokemon-battling formula as Colosseum, but with a longer single-player game and a few minor gameplay tweaks to address some common complaints about the previous game. As a result, the only people who will really appreciate this game are those who are already familiar with the series.
