'Koon' is a super old derogatory term for a black person. I don't even think people use it anymore.Had one recently on Omega Ruby. I caught Latios as part of the storyline, and since my friend and I are on a huge Star Wars kick right now, I decided to name it after one of the Jedi.
Specifically, Plo Koon.
The game would not take it, for reasons I still cannot fathom.
It accepted 'Plo.' It accepted 'Koon.' It would not accept 'Plo Koon.'
The real kicker? It accepted it when I put it in as 'PloKoon.'
I... did not know that. Turns out 'coon' is the offensive word, and of course it extends to alternate spellings. Still doesn't make a lick of sense why 'PloKoon' was accepted, especially since words like 'Alohomora' are still banned because it just so happens to contain an offensive string. I guess in the end it's not a big deal, and I lucked out being able to get the name I wanted anyway, but it's still kind of irritating, especially when other stories come up, like 'Ashton' not being accepted because of three freakin' letters that shouldn't be offensive in the slightest. And as if we needed any more evidence of this broken censor, earlier tonight I found a Secret Base that was called 'Team Stoner's Base.' How that got past the censor is way beyond me.'Koon' is a super old derogatory term for a black person. I don't even think people use it anymore.
Ahh that's a bit much... Anyway I caught myself a voltorn and nicknamed it Poke Ball and obviously it wouldn't take it because of the second word... xD really but worked when I did pokeball.If people don't stop putting hacked Jirachi with offensive nicknames in the GTS...I swear to god I will stick my genitals in a food processor and turn it on. Argh! The rage!
Really? Weird. Must have been a glitch one way or another, if it's allowed in one game it should be allowed in the other game, or disallowed in both games.My trainer has been named "Jodo" since Gen III. In alpha sapphire I was able to name my trainer Jodo, but later when I started Omega Ruby I WAS NOT able to name my trainer "Jodo"!!
So frustrated. Can we do ANYTHING about this?
