    Found this on Bulbapedia:
    Quote:
    Naming the mother

    Data, including text strings, remain for yet another forgotten feature: the ability to name the player's mother. Space is reserved in RAM for two other names as well, which default to RED and GREEN—the protagonist and his rival from the Generation I games.
    So.. how would you name your mother?

      I would always name here Delia or Caroline or Johanna, after the anime character's mothers. In D/P they give her a name, right?

      I'd probably just name her Sherlyn, which is my mom's name. I wouldn't want to give her a rude name like I would with my rival. I don't like the idea of people disrespecting their parents in real life, so I wouldn't even do it in a video game either, haha.

        Pretty much this, yeah. I would most likely name the mother after my own mother or another of my female family members.

        I'm not quite sure what context her name would be used in, but I don't think I would've called her anything other than "Mom" (I don't call my mom by her real name, so I don't see why I would in a game).

          I feel the ability to name your mother would make her character more personal rather than a simple starting point character. It doesn't have to mean the main character calls her by name, it just lets us know a bit more. Heck, I even made a hack on Mother's Day just for that purpose. I think it'd be a great idea for her to be nameable. I wonder why they didn't go through with that.

          Ya know, now that I think about it, this is probably why we don't name her. XD

            Aren't the moms in the latest gens named now? The player doesn't call them by their name, yet they still have names. That's why I think they should've been nameable.

              Maybe they cut this because they thought the start of the game would be annoying. "What's your name? What's your friend's name? What about your mother, father, dog..."

              idk, Earthbound and Mother 3 did that and no one barks about how awful that sequence is. And you do end up feeling more connected to the characters, especially if you name them after your own friends and family. I think they'd find a way to make it work, like they did with naming your rival in GSC.

              Hmm, I don't know really; I've been so used to calling/naming her "Mom" it'd be awkward to name her otherwise.

                I would probably have named her Mommy, since I was a little kid. But nowadays I would either name it after my mom's real name... or Mommy for the humor.

                  I would name her L'shonda. I freaking love that name.

                    Probably Kana... from the fulfiling your dream ("yume wo kanaeteru").
                    Well... she did give protagonist a way to fulfill his dream, so why not?

                      Probably after my own mother, since my character is always named after myself.

                      i think I'd either name her "mom", my real mom's name or "Princess Consuela"

                      I'd name her Mom because that is what I call my mother in real life.

                      I'd either name her my real mother's name, or just mum (not mom, because I'm not American).

                        MOM... or MARITA, which is my actual mother's name. I can see why they left this feature out, haha.

                            I would probably just name her Mom or Mommy or some kind of silly nickname. When I was little, I called my mom MomMoo so I probably would have named her that when I first started playing Pokemon.

                            My question is... Why are there no dads in any of the games?
