Meta Battle Subway PokeBase - Pokemon Q&A

Venusaur's name is an offensive nickname?

0 votes

Due to the censor that prevents Pokémon with offensive nicknames being traded on the GTS, an English language Venusaur cannot be traded on the GTS without a nickname in Generation V.

What does that mean by that? Venusaur's name is an offensive nickname? Please help me! I don't understand a bit!

List of censored words in Pokemon B&W versions

Sau is German for pig/ swine, and therefore censored.
