Pokemon Go ‘Find Pokemon’ Menu (Korean Translation + Vocab List)

I started playing Pokemon Go again over quarantine because I was bored out of my mind, and I’m low key still playing it. My phone was in Korean at the time, so Pokemon was in Korean, so I figured why not provide some Pokemon Go content ~

So when you go to your pokemon list and click search these options come up. Here’s the translation ~

Starting at the top

태그 = tag

Like hashtags for categorizing

포켓몬 = Pokemon

알 = egg

Next line

추천 = recommendation

더 보기 = see more

더 means ‘more’ and is used before a verb to mean ‘verb more of the noun’. 보기 is the stem of 보다, meaning ‘to see’ and -기, which is added to the stem to turn the verb into a noun form.

Now all the circles

They’re all Pokemon types or ways to sort them

노말 = normal

관동 = Kanto

부화 = hatching

전설 = lengend/legendary

색이 다른 = different colored

색 is ‘color’ ans here has the subject marker 이. 다른 is an adjective form of 다르다, meaning ‘to be different’.

교환 = exchange/exchanged

진화 가능 = Possible Evolution

These are pokemon you can currently evolve

진화 is evolution, and 가능 is possible.

메가진화 가능 = Possible Mega-evolution

Same as above

Would anybody be interested in a series where we learn the Korean versions of Pokemon names? They can be interesting because they don’t translate literally.

We are just 3 students who wish to share the love and joy of learning Korean through lesson posts and translations! We are doing this for fun, based on our experience and questions we ask native speakers. We are not fluent! Just passionate  ~ Hannah, Shelbi, and Jordan
