Fradow6476dAn intern was tasked with naming and create stickers for our tablets (we have lots of them as we create tablet apps), as referring to them by their model or identifier was not convenient for non-devs who couldn't differentiate them.
Being young, she decided we should use first-gen Pokemon names. Now all our internal tablets (apart from demo ones, to keep our credibility) are named after a first-gen Pokemon.
