Oh wow, fail.
Oh wow, fail.
Cofagrigus sounds OK, it's censorship fail.

No, it's a bad name. When you hear it, you don't think of "mummy Pokemon", you think of "offensive egregious homosexual caricature Pokemon".Its not the name that fails but them not making sure that the particular name wasn't made an exception.

I think the pronunciation is supposed to be Cofogrigus.
If a three letter chain within a word happens to be a bad word and that makes you claim the name as bad, I think you're looking the name wrong way. Kinda like saying "classy" is a terrible word because it contains "ass".
No problems with the name, just with the censoring.
its name is Cofagrigus, not Fag.
I knew the name seemed weird to me somehow. Just proves that they should have fine-tuned the names a bit more. Yes, I'm complaining about the names, get over it.
Anyway, this is hilarous. What a bunch of Cofags.
i haven't changed this signature for like sixteen years
i guess i'll put a link to that fic i'm planning on doing one day
I believe it's sarcophagus + egrigious. As such, I don't know about any of you, but I pronounce it COFF-uh-GREE-gus, thus downplaying the "fag" part. Knowing TPCi and its apparent disregard for the meanings of their own names (if SYE-lan is any indication), it'll probably be pronounced co-FAG-gri-gus. -_-
Mew into the original games, or an understudy, decided to troll the English versions of B/W & go through an elaborate scheme to just change that one letter, all to show how poorly TCPi forgot to double check their work/decisions. Or it was Gary Motherfucking Oak.
But really, I gotta agree with Zeta, it's a bad name choice. They, as previously stated in this thread, could've pulled off quite a few better puns off sarcophagus. In fact, I see no need for the word 'coffin' to even be in the name of Cofagrigus because it sounds redundant when combined with sarcophagus. Oh well, at least it isn't suffering from Muk syndrome.

Im betting this will become a new internet meme soon.
But any ways I just wonder why they would put "fag" in there when there was alot of great other names and how they could of not checked the censor so it does not censor the real names of pokemon.
It think its more a censor fail then a naming fail.
Wow, what a shit. I like the Cofagrigus name, but they should have give just Deathkan or something like that to this poor guy.
