Most people take Pokémon for granted, especially their names. Sure, some names are punny and you notice them because of that, but in most cases, the names go unnoticed. Still, in case you did not know, for the first five Pokémon generations, a Pokémon’s name could not exceed 10 letters because of the in-game mechanics. This changed after Generation V and since then, we have seen some Pokémon with more than 10 letters in their names. In this article, we are going to bring you a list of the 10 Pokémon with the longest names, excluding those that have “Mega”, “Gigantamax”, or some other descrtiptions in their names, since those are simply additions to basic species names.
Before we go to the list, we’d just like to say that the Pokémon with the longest name is Crabominable, whose name has a total of 12 letters.
Top 10 Longest Pokémon Names
10. Hitmonchan – 10 letters
Unlike Hitmonlee, Hitmonchan is a master of the fists with which he manages to knock out any opponent. His skill with his punches has made him learn punches of all kinds, including elemental ones, among others. Hitmonchan is said to possess the spirit of a boxer who has been working towards the world championship. He has an indomitable spirit and never gives up on his opponents.
Because of this, Hitmonchan is often seen in professional boxing contests. He always uses one arm to defend himself and the other to attack, so he never lowers his defense. His punches resemble a power drill and can go through a concrete wall with great ease. Despite everything, Hitmonchan needs a break after 3 minutes of combat to recharge his strength.
9. Weepinbell – 10 letters
It is bell-shaped, with a strong yellow color predominating on its body. It has two sharp leaves which it uses to eat, since if its prey does not fit entirely in its mouth, it slices it into pieces. It also has a large hook on its back, which it uses to sleep by hooking it onto a branch. If he moves in his sleep, he may wake up and find himself on the ground.
Weepinbell has a rather calm personality, though he does not hesitate to attack if he is disturbed. It feeds mainly on insects that it catches in the forests where it lives. If any Pokémon enters its territory, it will not hesitate to attack. When Bellsprout evolves into Weepinbell, its stem and roots disappear.

Once a year and on a specific date, they have the habit of appearing out of nowhere to meet and form a circle, always leaving the same space between them. Nobody has managed to find out the reason, but many theories are considered that contemplate the position of the sun, the energy of the earth and other factors.
