I also don't like the idea of online players rating names. This is a game played mostly by children, and kids might be upset with getting hate online.
Well legendaries can't be bred so if that's the case, then yeah you're stuck with the name... :(

As for the second point, yeah, it could be a little damaging to kids so it might be better off if it doesn't happen.

I think the name rater will stay pretty much the same, except I sincerely hope that if a trubbish is traded over, and it's just named trubbish, then you can change it's name. Because let's be honest, a pokemon being named it's species name is not "a sign of the love the previous trainer had for it" or whatever the name rater says. :P

Honestly, I guess I wouldn't mind if the name rather served more of a purpose, but at the same time, I guess I just don't really care. I don't really nickname my Pokemon often anyway, so as long as he serves that primary function, whatever secondary function he serves wouldn't really have an effect on me~! n_n;
