Army
:This, sorta. I honestly doubt it is a combination of chinchilla and army. I mean, how exactly does army come into place? According to its translated Pokédex entry, it has nothing in common with troops or anything. I seriously doubt it's 'army'. I think it's possibly a corruption or a shorter form of a different word. And for the record, how do we pronounce its name again? [[User:Rai Marshall|Rai Marshall]] 20:25, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
::CHEE RA MEE. Dirteng's definitely a combination of dirt and tengu, though. Its feet and nose indicate that much. '''[[User:TTEchidna|<span style="color:#FF0000">''TTE''</span>]][[User talk:TTEchidna|chidna]]''' 20:29, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
:::Not so much, it's way more likely based on "dark" than "dirt". And also, that -u from "tengu" is gone for no reason, which also obscures the meaning. So still, it doesn't change my point at all. Trademarked Romaji aren't really the "correct" Romaji. They're just used on merch, that's all. They are often made of Engrish and fail to convey the intended meaning (like "Prasle" for Plusle). I don't really see how would Chillarmy be related to army. It doesn't wear a uniform or anything. -army is just an Anglicized phonetic spelling of -aamyi, which probably has some Japanese etymology (or is just some kind of sound effect). "Army" doesn't make any kind of sense. --[[User:Maxim|Maxim]] 20:45, 27 July 2010 (UTC)
