...what?

But it's not based off of Jackie Chan retard. That's just his English name.

What are you talking about? That's their names. unless you're one of those people that still follow 4kids-tier translations.

what the shit are you talking about? His localized name was based on Jackie Chan. His conception was not, you dumb fuck.

With that said, Hitmonchan's actual Japanese name is Ebiwalar
This was based on the Japanese World Champion Boxer Hiroyuki Ebihara.
