Why is hirohito not a banned nickname if hitler and mussolini were?

I am extremely curious if this was actually remembered by game freak or not.

Well I guess they just had so many other things to think of that they didn't think it was important enough to think of everything that many kids might not even understand, but I'm not in agrreements with the censored language, I understand the reasonings but they get in the way of non offensive names.

Only Hitler is banned, actually. Being the primary force in driving the Axis powers in World War 2, he played a much larger role than Hirohito and Mussolini did in the war. In addition, Hitler's hosting of concentration camps was deemed extremely immoral, as he planned the genocide of the Jewish race.
