Has anyone ever had an experience on the GTS where you got traded a Pokémon that you just found out had been given a really stupid name? Imagine getting that Scizor you've always wanted, only to discover its name is "Bug" and there's nothing you can do about it. Or better yet, it could be a badly-named Kadabra holding an Everstone. Happened to anyone?

I once got an Abra called ... get this... "BoobCover"

.... I assume because the pokemon is... A-BRA

tasteless yet hillarious

I like Pokemon (...)

A-BRA *gigglesnort*

I don't have WiFi, but my friend does. He got a Jynx named "*********" -.-

Geez I got a corpish that I wanted, had an adamant nature, but it's name was... I hope I don't get in trouble even though I'll "bleep out most of it "S**". Yeah. I wanted to use it competetively too. Sigh...

But can't you still just check the name before you trade? unless of course you're offering it.

Anyway, I hate getting Pokemon with Nicknames in other languages. (Chinese\Japanese\so on and so on)

Expect to get a lot of Skunktank's named "FART" on the GTS with the release of Platinum. Because "FART" is exactly what it is doing in that Plat sprite...

My friend once got a Torchic named Choke, which has two meanings: one is a euphamism for a lewd act *as Torchic resembles a chicken...) and seeing as it eventually becomes a Fire/Fighting type, it could choke someone out like in MMA or wrestling.

Actually, in the same vein, I once had a Rhyhorn I called "Horny".

I've never gotten any pokemon with strange names, but I wish they would let you change their names. After all, it is just a nickname and since the pokemon is going to be bonding with a new trainer, I think the 1st step to that bond would be giving it a new name.

After all, when you get an animal at an animal shelter, 90% of the time, you're going to be renaming it. I think you should be allowed to rename pokemon as well.

wow you guys got some pretty weird names i never trade on gts mainly because of stupid names like that

Yes. I got a Shiny Shinx named Sephiroth. I know that Shiny Shinx's are pretty common (I have two others), but it still sucks.

It wasn't on the GTS(but was on WiFi), but I traded a rare shiny(from a friend) for a Rayquaza, because I don't have RSE. Turns out its name is Grn.Dragon. I asked her about it, and she said when she caught it, she let her 6 or 7 year old cousin name it. It's supposed to be called "Green Dragon."

Lucky me, an awesome Pokemon that was named by a little kid.

oh man i understand i have a friend who plays and he is like two years younger than me (im 15) and he gives all of his pkmon the stupidest names

I trades a shiny Ponyta to a person who was offering Bagons with excellent IV's on a trading board. The Bagon he gave me was nicknamed 4.3. I released it shortly after.

Seriously... Why?

I've had a few but the one that really stands out is a Dialga I got that was nicknamed "Spyro".

Just don't see the resemblance.

Well, not over GTS, but in leafgreen, getting the lickitung named Marc. I love lickitung, and I've evo'ed him and it just bugs me.

I HATE kadabra, graveler, machoke or haunter holding an everstone..

Palamon
22nd February 2009, 4:07 AM
^ Yeah me too Marc! I mean MARC! crazy name for a likitung. This is a programmed trade. Yeah and the Girl with haunter she named it Gasper. >_>

I also got a Psyduck named Yellow off the GTS. I did it for the evo trick to evolve my Dusknoir, so I didn't really care.

I guess this is why there are tons of people requesting the same Pokemon that they are trading.

"eff" you

A lovingly named Spiritomb. Not with that exact name, but I assume most of you have experienced enough of the world that you can figure out what the real name was. I don't really mind the name that much(especially since I just needed *a* spiritomb and could always breed another one if I needed a better name), but it is pretty immature.

That is so clever... Some douche named their abra Embrylex. Idk why. And a guy named his monferno, fire. wtf?

Pingouin7
27th February 2009, 12:08 AM
Maganon is Magmortar's French name.

The Abra named Embrylex would be Larvitar's French name, but maybe someone that tought his Abra would appear in Larvitar section.

Tyranocif is Tyranitar's French name.

Also, some people tell that they got Pokémon with weird names not on the GTS. Can't you just check the nickname before trading?

I've sent so many high valued Pokemon to the GTS with bogus names as a joke. Basically, anything level 100 that I mass bred with, random things I wanted to get rid of that other people might like, cloned legendaries that I was practicing cloning with...the usual. So if any of you get a Pokemon from "Dani"...schyeah...right here.

I got a Burmy named Rachel. No clue why. I just needed one for my dex.
I also have a Gible named "IGOTBALLZ" or something along the lines of that.
And then, I have a...wow...if I said this, the mods would be all over me. XD

I traded a Jolteon with the nickname of P*nis. When I was bredding it at level one, it was quite funny when ther day-care lady said, "so far your penis has grown by 20." It was a bit amusing whrn I gave it the thunderstone and it said. "Your penis evolved into a Jolteon." XD

I gave someone on GST a baby feebas nicked named Erotic. - Well Milotic sounds erotic to me. =P And I thought the name would suit it if the person I traded it to would evolve it into Milotic.
SO far not any funny nicknames from a trade but I do have a male Bellossom nicknamed after word used for self-loving.
