New Jersey towns have some crazy names. Even those of us who pass dozens of Parkway exits each day have trouble recognizing some of them. Buzzfeed brilliantly pointed out that most of the towns in the Garden State sound like Pokémon names, and even we had trouble navigating through its “Is It a New Jersey Town or a Pokémon?” quiz. Here are 10 town names that could you could definitely mistake for Pokémon.

  1. Evesham
  2. Netcong
  3. Cinnaminson
  4. Moonachie
  5. Ho-Ho-Kus
  6. Sea Girt (good luck not picturing Squirtle next time you’re in Sea Girt)
  7. Totowa
  8. Mahwah
  9. Shamong
  10. Watchung

If you knew that all of these were towns and not Pokémon, congratulations! You’re either a true New Jerseyan or a Pokémon master.
