In PokeStar Studios, are all games programmed to spell Old Gateau wrong when a fan gives it to the player?

I think they gave me Old Gateaux after I filmed my movie.

Scratch my previous answer, turns out gateau is the legitimate spelling. However, gateaux is the plural, so that's probably why you saw that in the text. Dictionary source here.

OK final edit with irrefutable, straight-from-the-game-code answer! The game text I extracted from BW2 a while back has two files which are almost identical except one is plural and one is singular.

Extract from file A:

...
Zinc
PP Max
Old Gateau
Guard Spec.
Dire Hit
...

Extract from file B:

...
Zincs
PP Maxes
Old Gateaux
Guard Specs.
Dire Hits
