i choose pokemon gallium because of a few number of reasons a first back in the first year of developing the game it used to be called liquid steel i wanted to make a pokemon game based off heatran cause he was my favorite legendary but i didn't want it to be like oh team blah blah is using heatran to do horrible thing's blah i wanted something different so i made it to where cynthia was you're mother and i had HIGH inspiration from uranium so i was like how come no one has made a uranium sequal so i made it a uranium sequal and as my school years went on i learned about element's and the fact that there was a such thing called gallium so i change the name into pokemon gallium and it also matched pokemon uranium considering there both element's and they sound the same and as time went on the game became what it is today

I'm kinda new and starting my fangame project. So my current project name called Pokemon Outcast. The word "Outcast" means a particular person or group that stray themselves from society and that's the outcome of the game. From my development, the story will start out very peacefully until something happened really bad and the player will faced many twisted tales and hardships of their home region. In advance, I want the player made decision of their actions, how they affect the story till the end.

I also have this issue. Though it's a Pokemon game, I wonder if it's necessary to add "Pokemon" in the game to confirm that. Like Phoenix Rising for example, they made it clear they don't want to be called "Pokemon Phoenix Rising" making it more new. Then again, when I think of only called my game "Outcast" will make it sounds foggy and unsettling from start.

I've always had trouble with coming up with names.
But the trick is to not overthink it and come up with something simple and catchy.

I, for example. Want to revive my project called Pokemon Frosted and Pokemon Drought. Once i’ve settled on the names I try to design the box art legendaries around it.

The game was called "Pokemon Phoenix Rising" for years though, so when it released with a small name change it didn't throw many people, as they were familiar with the project and probably wouldn't have noticed if it hadn't been announced.
Just like with PR, your game probably doesn't need the word Pokemon in the title; it should be fairly obvious that it's a fan game when you're posting it on fan game sites? n_n
I think the only disadvantage might be if someone was trying to look up your game through google or something. Just searching "Outcast" probably wouldn't work, but "Pokemon Outcast" might get the right result even if the word pokemon isn't in the title.

You're right. I did look up "Outcast" to see possible results and the name will obviously get mistake with some TV series. I guess I'll keep the old title.
