chart of the day: voiced obstruents (i.e., phonemes like /b/, /g/, /z/) in pokémon names, by evolution level

should have included the citation: Kawahara, Shigeto, et al. “Sound Symbolic Patterns in Pokémon Names.” Phonetica, vol. 75, no. 3, 2018, pp. 219–44. Crossref, doi:10.1159/000484938.

@aparrish the worst part of this chart is the lack of accented e in pokémon

@aparrish has someone actually written a paper on the linguistics of Pokémon names
