Wrathion? Ultraxion? Why do some of the villains in 4.3 sound more like rejected Pokemon names than villains we heroes need to stop?

Wrathion isn't a villain.

Sometimes I think CDev's name generator is stuck on the "11 year old Power Rangers fanfic writer" setting.

He may not be a villian, yet. It's been hinted at that he's not at all as good as he was hoped to be.From the very first mention of him in this patch, Blizzard started referring to him in a slightly negative way.Personally, I am tired of Black Dragonflight villians. The whole point of the egg was that there was a purified black dragon, and he might lead the Black Dragonflight back to legit status, and not just be one more flight that is an enemy to everyone. It's going to really suck if they pull a "Now he's taking over, and he's pissed about his treatment. Now he's leading the Black Dragonflight in a new crusade against mortals!"

It's one of the evolved forms of Eevee. You have to use a Black Dragon Egg on Eevee to force it to evolve into Wrathion.To evolve into Ultraxion you have to use a Rock Shard during the Hour of Twilight.

It's been a longstanding tradition for male Black Dragons to have names that end with -ion or -ian. See also: Sartharion, Nefarian, Neltharion, Hemathion, Sabellian,

It isn't the suffix that's the problem, it's that the man's name is Wrath, and that doesn't ever lead to anything good. It's been proven that, to some degree, your name shapes you- kids with names that were popular the year that they were born are more likely to be popular or normal, and kids with exotic names are more likely to be outcast. With a name like Wrathion, I'm sure everyone is treating him like he's a villain, so villain he probably will become.That model is pretty sweet up at the top there, though, and it just makes our current models and armor look distressingly outdated.

Does he do evil dances that put you in trances ?

So ... you wanted him to be Lollipoppian, Prince of the Black Dragonflight?

I presume they're making the new black dragon aspect an antagonist, so they can keep the Black Dragonflight as villains. This way they don't have to go revamp a load of content, removing dragons, once big DW kicks the bucket.

I agree with Drakk. This seemed a spectacular opportunity to "reform" the Black Flight, but it sounds like their new Prince will be just as evil, but not insane.That's disappointing.
