Serebii.net on Tuesday reported new information about Pokémon Platinum days before the game's official English-language release. The site revealed the English names of Rotom's alternate forms, Frontier Brains and more.

Two of Rotom's alternate forms were renamed. Cut Form, the one capable of learning Leaf Storm, is now known as Mow Form, and Spin Form, the one capable of learning Air Slash, as Fan Form. The other forms, Heat, Wash and Frost, the ones capable of using Overheat, Hydro Pump and Blizzard, respectively, keep the same name.

The Platinum Orb, the item used to keep Giratina in its Origin Forme outside the Distortion World, is now called the Griseous Orb.

Some of the Sinnoh Battle Frontier Facilities have been renamed. Battle Hall is the new name for Battle Stage, and Battle Roulette is now called Battle Arcade. The other Facilities, Battle Factory and Battle Castle, keep the same name in the English version as in the Japanese version.

Sinnoh's Frontier Brains' English names were revealed, as well. Factory Head Nejiki is now known as Factory Head Thorton and Stage Madonna Kate as Hall Matron Argenta. Castle Butler Kokuran has been renamed Castle Valet Darach, and Cattleya is now named Lady Caitlin. Dahlia's name stays the same, but she is now known as Arcade Star Dahlia.

Match Place, where players can battle Gym Leaders and the five tag partners in the game, is now known as the Battleground.

As was revealed earlier by Circuit City, Team Galactic scientist Pluto is now known as Charon.
