    Next somebody will find out Arceus is banned
    I mean, take out the C and the U, and put the S before the E. What does it spell?
    'Arse', by the way, is that banned?

    While censorship protects kids from unappropiate content during day, they still can access to it at night while Big Bro's not watching. So, there's even less control about what are they seeing, making censorship pointless.

    (BTW, I mean "day" and "night" in a metaphorical way)



    Ah, I guess Muk is banned too (?)

    When the RS remakes come out, your starter will be pre-named "Muddy" to solve this problem.

    Skuntank are pre-named "Smelly"

    and Cofagrigus is pre-named "Daddy" EDIT: I meant "Deaddy" lol

    This is just... if they want a filter so bad why not have it so that the gts has some way of differentiating between official names and nicknames? There is a piece of data attached to the pokemon that tells you the difference, that's why when something from another language game evolves it will take on the English name if it wasn't nicknamed. How hard is it to make the filter take that piece of data into consideration.

    Not that I like that the filter exists. I understand there's some bs law and they need to do this so the government or whoever's in charge of this thing can agree that it's kid safe but it's completely moronic. A child will not be hurt if he gets a pokemon nicknamed shithead, his mommy will just be angry. Swear words only give you power if you let them and my god do over protective parents let them. Kids wouldn't giggle and say these words over and over when they learned them if we didn't treat them like some forbidden thing or something only grown ups can say...

    Oops/rant

    Actually, my brain has always read it as "arseus" because the e should make the c soft and it being hard doesn't really make sense.

    Freudian slip? P:

    There is a censor? Does it only apply to the GTS? From what I read it sounds like it doesn't allow you to nickname your Pokemon with vulgarities at all, yet my Eelektross is named Fuckin Eel.

    Man, the only thing that need fixing is the damn "asking for" thing. The thing should stop people from asking for a level 9-and-under Reshiram/Zekrom/whatever. Like "this Pokemon is impossible!" or along the lines.

    And what sucks even worse is I can't give away blatantly hacked Pokemon. I tried to hand some sucker a level 1 Reshiram, right? Oops! "This Pokemon can't be traded away! (error code or whatever in here)". I say "blatantly" because it had no issues with me handing away hacked level 100 Tornadus and Zoroark.

    What?! D8 You're kidding, right? I'm not going to do random match-up against people who don't nickname their Pokemon! ...unless it's like PBR, and it just leaves everything default? Man... :<
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    I never use the GTS anyways. 99.99% of the trade offers on there are completely effing ridiculous.

    Random Battle reverts nicknames to default names for the battle.

    Say, is this in effect for pokemon from foreign language versions also? Which is to say, the inability to trade a French pokemon to an english game, for example. I imagine the GTS wouldn't take too kindly to Crapustule.

    I put the F-word in a mon's name to experiment. The GTS accepted it.

    I put the same word that's in Cofagrigus in a mon's name, too, and the GTS accepted it.

    But it wouldn't accept a Cofagrigus.
