Korean name for Froakie: Thank you for adding this, and for you patience!
 
Until the page gets unlocked... here's Froakie's [http://pokemonxy.pokemonkorea.co.kr/pokemon_03.html Korean name]: 개구마르 ''Gaegumareu'' -- [[User:Nick15|Nick15]] ([[User talk:Nick15|talk]]) 02:57, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
:Took me a little bit, but here's what ''Gaegumareu'''s name (most likely) comes from:
:* 개구리 ''gaeguri'' (frog)
:* 말 ''mal'' (沫, bubble, foam, froth)
:It's sort of a translation of its Japanese name... though not including part about the onomatopoeia for a frog's croaking (as that's 개골개골 ''gae'gol-gae'gol''). However, I can't exactly account for why 말 ''mal'' got turned into 마르 ''mareu''. I'll just have to sort it out later. -- [[User:Nick15|Nick15]] ([[User talk:Nick15|talk]]) 05:05, 12 June 2013 (UTC)
