    Question Ever got traded a Pokémon with a bogus name?

    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?

    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...
    I'm allergic to Brelooms. Don't come near me with one, or my face will puff up.

    Don't be mad, be sad! You're less annoying that way.

    Could Lugia beat Makuhita in a game of chess?

    I'm looking for any Bulbasaur, Charmander, Chikorita, Totodile, Torchic, or Mudkip. I'll trade any other starter for one.

    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.

    That's so brilliant, why didn't I think of it? XD
    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.
    I'm typically inactive between Spring and Fall. I'll be on as often as time allows.

    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.

    I got a stupid Blissey called "WannaBe". Next, I got an Articuno named Freeze(F word here) D:. I got scared of the GTS ever since.

    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.
    I claimed Bug type Arceus

    lol.

    I got a Lv. 100 Shiny Palkia from the GTS named MASSELLE... I really don't like the name D:

    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.
