Is this a bad word in some other language?

I mean, if they can give that name to a gym leader, I should be able to give it to my pokemon. :(

It probably contains some obscure offensive foreign-language slang in it.
Which is pretty much the case with most confusing censored words.

Well, if they can let you write "nig" if you put letters after it, then they can let you write the name of one of the Gym Leaders. Really there's no excuse for this.

Can we use after in this game? I haven't tried yet... No reason why you'd need that name I suppose, just curious if they went as far as monster hunter has been with its online chat.

I'm just parroting what I heard on the bigger board complaining about name censoring.

But yes it's really annoying because it feels like 99% of the names or words we have in English mean something wrong in some other obscure language. I won't be surprised if they censored some letter pattern because it's a swear in some dead language

And yet it's the name of a Gym Leader...

Then what is for Viola?
American Sign Language is my primary language - deal with it!
"ESL" is standing for "English Sign Language", period.

And viola is a form of the verb violar, which means "to rape" in Spanish.
