With the expanded letter limit for names, do Feraligatr and such get renamed?

Cofagrigus is probably most likely to be renamed if they consider it, simply to resolve the GTS issues that stem from the bad word in its name. Plus, as a Gen 5 Pokemon, it hasn't been cemented in the minds of fans as much as the other two have been.

They won't be, because Game Freak is afraid of change.

You can bet your pants that I'll be re-nicknaming them with the proper spellings, though. Fight the power!

Yep, Pancham's French name is Pandespiègle, which is 12 characters long.

"afraid of change"? Their names are their names. Keeping them isn't some aversion to something different, it's preserving what's already been established.

Are you kidding me?

But their names are only the way they are because of space limitations. Now that those limitations don't exist anymore, the names can be written properly.

It's name is based off of the word "sarcophagus", as in, the container that Egyptian mummies were buried in. Its name should be Cophagrigus, but because of space limitations, it had to be changed to Cofagrigus.
