I checked a few of the big sites and didn't see these so I think they are new.

Japanese name (translation) - Official name

よわき (Timid) - Defeatist
くだけるよろい (Broken Armor) - Weak Armor
テレパシー (Telepathy) - Telepathy
ミラクルスキン (Miracle Skin) - Wonder Skin
すりぬけ (Slip Through) - Infiltrator
いたずらごころ (Teasing Heart) - Prankster
てつのトゲ (Iron Thorns) - Iron Barbs

These were taken from the official English game.

Nope. As mentioned at the bottom of my post, these were taken from the official English game.

Infiltrator is possibly the best English translation I've seen. Normally the names are worse, but for that one, the name improved.

Strange, Usually any Japanese text becomes weird, random symbols on this site.

Cool find, I've never heard of these name changes. :D

Well, it seems like we won't have the Timid (nature) vs. Timid (ability) problem.

Infiltrator is a really good name for the ability, and Prankster is pretty good too. So how many new abilities are left untranslated?

And so it begins.

These are some pretty good names. I like Prankster.

I read the whole post. I was just wondering if TC got the names from screen shots of the official English game from a magazine or a website.

I didn't expect copies to be available this soon (assuming you have a retail copy). Maybe by Wednesday, but not this soon.
