    This this THIS! Gamefreak its been years, why? Sometimes you get really good stuff on WT and its useless because of their names... plus, as someone who likes to name EVERYTHING... it would be awesome for the nickname policy to change.

        You know, I think the true-devs could implement a held item called
        "renaming clause"(or something like that), which allows a traded
        pokmon to be given a different pseudonym.

          You have to RNG with your ID, SID, gender and name if you want to rename trade Pokmon, no exception.

            My thought for a while has been that I actually can see the point behind not allowing traded Pokemon to be renamed, but I do think that shouldn't apply to Pokemon who haven't been nicknamed.

            "This name represents the original trainer's feelings towards this Pokemon!"
            What name?

              One thing I hated in the old generations was that npc Pokemon that you traded for had nicknames.

              Thinking of a win win situation, what if all Pokemon came with a box that you could check before trading if you didnt want someone to change the nickname, otherwise unchecked people could change nicknames. It would be unchecked to start. And would only appear on Pokemon with nicknames. Would fisappearif the name is changed back to original name in any language.

              For the record I got a Tropius in wonder trade, its name is Japanese text with 2 hearts at the end. No clue what it says but its now my Sweet Scenter in X. I kind like the name.

              I feel like keeping the name in a traded Pokmon is one of the few ways to have a feeling in the game that the 'mon was traded from someone else in particular. Most of everything else (that is useful) can be tuned after receipt including EVs, whereas a number of attributes including affection values reset upon trade and the so-called Pokmon memory only transfers so far (I seem to remember it's up to two trades depending on the Pokmon?). The name is, in a way, the last remaining evidence of a legacy (and I guess that reminds me a bit of how in Final Fantasy VII, Cloud's made-up history and the Buster Sword are the last evidence of Zack's legacy. No, you are crying now).

              That said, I think I like Masereati's idea that traders should have the option before send to allow their Pokmon's nickname to be changed. This can be done via a flag in the Pokmon itself, which should have no portability issues at least with the flags documented in the code so far, or via an equipped item which will trigger a script and consume the item, thus functionally equivalent to equipped-item trade evos. Trade facility screens would then only have to incorporate in their UI visibility for the flag / item, as well as a filter for eg.: Wondertrade.

              As for Pokmon who are traded in and not nicknamed (and thus their "name" is the species name) I feel like there should be the option to renick them as well as resetting them to non-nicknamed before trading them away.

                I just reread what I typed earlier and I dont know if the last sentence made any sense. The paragraph where I mispelled disappear.

                I meant that if the OP nicknamed their Pokemon then changed it back to its native name then traded it. It wouldnt have a box and would be nicknameable. I believe any Pokemon traded with no nickname, even if it once had a nickname and was changed back to its normal name, in any language, should be nicknameable.


                That being said I think the games only recognize a small amount of languages so I think unless they made the game available in all languages, which is probably impossible, most named in other languages would be considered nicknames.

                It bothers me when I get a Pokmon from a different language and it reverts to its original species name, and for some reason I'm still not allowed to nickname it.
                Come on, GF, you're better than this.

                Probably something Game Freak isn't particularly motivated to change considering there's the pressing issue that if you change a Pokemon that's already nicknamed, it might come across as insulting to the person who nicknamed it.

                ... that is, in Game Freak's ideal world of "everyone gets along because of Pokemon and sings kumbaya around a campfire.

                  It needs to be revamped. There is no excuse for why in this day and age we can't rename nicknamed Pokemon. They already have censors for any bad words in the game, but the fact that you can negate these shows how flawed it is. I don't care how much sentimentality a person had to "HE.S. B.A.L.s" let me change the name!

                  Pokemon haven't had any sentimentality since local trading. With online trading many people who do get these pokemon either re-bred them or release them. it's a nice thought, but it's terrible in execution.

                    I'd at least like an option to revert the Pokémon's name to its language equivalent in the game you're playing for Pokémon who are named their actual species, just in a different language. So 'Kleinstein' (which is Geodude's German name) should have an option to revert its name to its English equivalent ('Geodude'). I mean....I know the names turn to English or whatever language you're playing on your game when they evolve, but obviously that can't be done for fully-evolved or Pokémon without evolutions. GameFreak really seems to like tradition and doesn't change the formula often, and I'm not sure why... =( If TMs could be made unlimited then I don't see why we can't just change nicknames of traded Pokémon.

                      I think it should be allowed. In the age of the internet in which people are constantly making anonymous trades, more often that not with Pokémon specifically caught/bred to be traded, the old argument of 'this nickname really meant something to the OT' doesn't hold up much anymore.

                      That said I never use traded Pokémon myself, I have an OCD about needing the OT trainer name to be mine.
