The Pokérator is a generator of Pokémon names and descriptions, based on user input. The names are generated by blending words based on syllables or characters according to a bigram language model. An accompanying description is generated by filling a template with ConceptNet answers. This sentence is then used as a prompt for text generation with the GPT-2 language model which was finetuned on Pokédex entries. The evaluation of the generated Pokémon names shows that the names are not realistic, but appreciated and creative.
