I can't believe they didn't fix Feraligatr's name!

It's official, Feraligatr is still named Feraligatr. They didn't fix it to Feraligator despite the character limit having been increased to 12. The same also applies to Victreebel. What I find weird is that they went all out fixing move and item names such as Faint Attack to Feint Attack, PoisonPowder to Poison Powder, Parlyz Heal to Paralyze Heal and DeepSeaScale to Deep Sea Scale.

That's because it's how his name is spelt.

Changing the names of moves and items is different from changing the name of a Pokemon

Feraligatr is a cooler spelling, and everyone has gotten used to spelling it that way

That's because its name is Feraligatr, not Feraligator.

My jimmies remain unrustled. And this is coming from someone who really, really likes Feraligatr.

Who cares? I know what it is, you know what it is, does it really matter that much?

The only reason it was named that was because of the character limit.

Feraligatr's name was that way because of a 10-character limit. Now that the limit has been raised to 12, some people want the name corrected to Feraligator as that was believed to be the intended name.

How do you know that? Did you work on the translation team for G/S? How do you know they didn't stylize it like that on purpose?
