Why do they limit the names of Pokemon to ten characters?

I never understood that. It's just so silly. We could have some really awesome names if they just got rid of that silly limitation. And why no two word names? Yeah, there's Mr. Mime and Mime Jr., but that's all there is. We could have more.

Who knows, Ask GF.

I'm still kinda confused as to why you can't rename trades, but you can still release them. How come the former disrespects the trainer's wishes and the latter doesn't.

There has to be a limitation somewhere. Computers don't have infinite memory, and the first gen had heavy memory constraints as it was. Be glad they increased it; in Japanese, the max length of Pokemon names is five.

Just another silly thing to add to the list of the things they need to change.

I thought it was one character, 10 seems too much.

Feraligatr's name should be changed to Feraligator and Victreebel's name should be changed to Victreebell.
