Koolaid? Isn't there a drug or alcohol with that as a code name?

Barring that maybe trademarked names are disallowed foe legal reasons?

Well, it's not a code name for a drug so much as a euphemism for committing suicide. As in the phrase 'drinking the Koolaid', a reference to the Jonestown suicides. So maybe since it hits the points of (1) seemingly endorsing/glorifying suicide and (2) religion, maybe GF figured it's better to be safe than sorry and disallowed that as a nickname, even if the OT didn't intend for it to be taken that way.

EDIT: And I'm also incredulous as to how Mr. Fister got allowed as it sounds like a rather deviant sexual act.

I'm a little surprised that now Spike isn't allowed; Spyke, on the other hand, works perfectly. o_o The term "spiking drinks" comes to mind which probably explains it, but seriously GF? *facepalm*

@Koolaid discussion: *adds two cents* I'm thinking either it was the suicides as MAE mentioned and/or the fact that it has 'laid' in it, as in sexual references. Who knows these days. -_-2.gif

That, and Spike contains the term "Spik" (sp?), which is a derogatory term for a Hispanic person.

Before I settled defiantly on Mr. Fister, Satan was allowed, so if they're censoring religious terms, that extremely obvious one made it through.

It's so weird. I was thinking the massacre might have set it off after I tried naming him, and then maybe it though it was a reference to AIDS (also banned). "laid" didn't even cross my mind until you brought it up. All this came from me trying to innocently name my bird after the drink his coloration made me think of, but when I actually tried to be offensive, it worked.

There was an AR code last gen to disable the censor. Hopefully it makes a comeback this gen, for the sake of all the regular names that are getting tied up in this. I still think nicknames should be wiped upon trading or something. Gyarrr.

That is kind of backwards: actually trying to use offensive names gets Crap Past the Radar, but innocent names that just happen to have text strings that correspond to dirty/sexual/religious/other offensive references du jour can't. facepalm.gif Get your act together, GF.

I just caught a chatot.gif and tried to name it Perapera, which is Japanese onomatopoeia for fluency or for "blah, blah, blah" but I couldn't, presumably because of the rape text string. I had to shorten it to just Pera to get it past. unsure.gif

I wanted my quote to be something related to SkydoesMinecraft, so i tried So Boodiful... That wasn't allowed idk why but GF is really going overboard with this. Just like how Nintendo just shut down the Spotpass feature for Swapnote.

Just figured out today that Penelope is also disallowed. *more facepalms* Like GF's all "zomgz kids don't run off with your significant others to elope because of someone/something named Penelope!" facepalm.gif Good grief, way to slightly ruin the name of one of my favorite Criminal Minds characters, GF!

O_O How the Gehennom did those get past the censors?

Last night, I was hatching some unevolved Pokémon eggs that I bred, and was shocked to see that 'Lolicon' did not get censored. I also was surprised that a trademarked name (Coca-Cola, if you're curious) was allowed, considering the Koolaid example Secondhand posted earlier. Also, another one that mystifies me is Viregina, mostly because of the last four letters being reminiscent of a censor-dodging attempt with the name of a female reproductive organ.

Gee, GameFreak... ONE particular oversight of yours is going to have DISASTROUS consequences on the many innocent, young minds who have had your game images implanted into their minds over the course of a whopping 5 Generations, now gone onto 6. You forgot to censor the word 'BALL' - which, according to the Gen 5 censors list, is read as 'TESTICLE'! Now, because of you, kids are shouting, 'OW, I GOT ELECTROCUTED BY A TESTICLE WHILE LOOKING FOR ITEMS IN THE KANTO POWER PLANT! Oh wait, it's a Voltorb, which my POKéDEX says is the TESTICLE Pokémon!" In the next Generation, they wouldn't want to touch a PALKIA hiding among VOLTORB in the power plant. It might EXPLODE!

I'm guessing they censored 'con', which is a French word for idiot? It's a pretty harmless word, though, so it may be something else.

Turns out you're right, it is the string "con" that got censored.

I tried to name a haunter 2SPOOPY and a klefki Boobookeys but they both weren't allowed. I guess it was because of poop or poopy in the first one and boob in the other. I tried censor dodging the klefki by using 0s but it still didn't work so I was forced to name it something else.

That's sad though. I'm one of those people who like to give pokes ridiculous names before wonder trading them xD

If you want to know why Spike was disallowed, you'll have to look to the dutch language.

How did Lolicon go through, but not Cocona?

IDK about any of this but the JWittz wasn't allowed to name his Stunfisk "Turd". *SlaughterMelon used Head Smash* Wow GameFreak, why that word huh?

EDIT: I just caught an Audino, so I tried to nickname it "Oh hell no", somehow that got past the censor xD. Silly GF, they censor BooBooKeys but not Oh Hell no xD

EDIT EDIT: Forgot to say but one of my 3DS friends has a Metang named ASss Wipe.

As a Dutch person I'll have to say that spike has no vulgar or ridiculous meanings in the language, mostly having the meanings it has in the English language. If something is wrong with flower parts though, that could be a reason for sensoring it, but I think that would be stupid...

Speaking about Dutch words. Akako got censored, which is probably cause it contains the Dutch word kak, which means shit. So much international stuff, but still rather stupid...

People assume that time is a strict progression of cause to effect, but actually, from a non-linear, non subjective viewpoint it's more like a big ball of wibbly wobbly timey wimey stuff.

What I had heard was that "Pik" refers to a male member.
