The name "Thunderstorm" comes from, well, thunderstorms. Luxio is an electric type Pokemon and in artwork is often depicted near or with lightning during a storm. Instead of naming the site after an electric-type attack, I wanted to try something a little different. I was originally going to go with something that had to do with Voltage or something but, as I discussed in the Inspiration essay: perhaps Luxio was designed after the "In Like a Lion--" idiom. Then the title of the site would be appropriate.
