Why can't you change the nickname of traded Pokemon? Or at least remove it?

Just got a Yveltal from the GTS, but its nickname is "PENl$". WTF? I just can't believe after all these years, you still can't fix nicknamed Pokemon.

It's suppose to resemble the personality of the person who gave it to you, or something, but I do agree you should be able to at least revoke the nickname if it's crude like that.

Yeah, I'd really like the option to at least revert it back to its normal name. I got some wonder traded pokemon who had names that got through the 'filter' somehow. Seriously. I got a combee named something bad but I couldn't name my Mightyena Spike... WUT?

I'm more annoyed with pokemon named in Korean or Japanese or whatever than I am Pokemon with silly names that I can at least read.

I really hate how if a Pokemon has a foreign name and when it evolves, it transform into the english version.

That's the main reason why my female Meowstic didn't last long on my team :C

Didn't fit with the rest of my nicknamed allies :'C

I agree. I had caught a Shiny Oddish and evolved it on my Y version and traded it to my main X. Then I restarted my Y and now I can't give my Shiny Vileplume a clever name. :(
