hilarious rival/character/pokemon names

    Back in DPt/HGSS days I saw a trainer called "DICKson" (yes with the capitals like this) on the GTS...but it is not possible anymore to name people and Pokémon with bad words since Gen 5. I mean, think about WEEDle, nosepASS or coFAGrigus. Bravo Nintendo.

    To be fair, Nintendo did change the GTS rules so that those problematic Pokémon could be traded without being nicknamed first. However, I fell foul of this when I caught a Bidoof in Omega Ruby (I think?) and tried to name it Beaver Bank, but it rejected that name. Wonder why? :rolleyes:

    It is actually possible to name a pokémon murder in gen 6. I did.

    In Crystal I occasionally like to name Silver Khan for his seemingly cruel and uncaring nature when you first meet him but there is another reason for it which is I play as the female trainer and call her Chaka. So together the names form Chaka Khan.

    I think I named my Rival in Yellow Loser once. I definitely remember naming a Gen 1 rival that before but can’t remember which game it was exactly.

    Wonder how THAT got past the censors. What Pokémon was it? o_O

    I don't remember. I think it was a Chatot. I later did the same with an Oddish.

    Remember how in Gen 4, you could record your own voice for Chatot’s Chatter move? The only excuse for that was for people to say rude words and then fall apart with laughter listening back to it. Chatot was even banned from competitive play and tournaments at one time because of this. XD
