#why???

The Horse Pokémon. You know the one. Glastrier and Spectrier.

I really like their names in the english version. Nice combination of the french words “glace” (ice, glass) or “spectre” (ghost, specter) and “destrier” (steed).

… But that’s the english version.

Wanna know what the french version is?

Blizzeval and Spectreval.

That is awful.

“Translated” to english, these are equivalents of Blizzhorse (blizzard) and Spectrhorse or Specterhorse.

Why did the french team change the obviously french part of the name, the “destrier”, to a simple horse (cheval)?

I mean, yeah, it’s a horse, but it’s most importantly a king’s horse, thus a steed.

WHY THE HECK DID THEY CHANGE THAT?!!
