Darnit, Empiror, now I can't undo the vision of Wandissimo repeatedly ripping his shirt that disturbed me as a teen. >___>

Ha! I love the unintentional regular show reference. "Lady Pec's" indeed.

We have our explanation.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pigeon_breast

It's an actual medical condition in which the sternum protrudes outward. The reasoning behind it keeping defense from going down is probably that the pokemon in question has a built-in shield that can't be meaningfully affected by the opposition.

Besides the obvious concern of "Can it fit in the character limit?" (Although Pigeon Chest could have pulled it off; same length as Serene Grace), I'm wondering if the localizers might have been trying to avoid association with the medical problem (if the protrusion is severe enough, it's not going to do nice things to the circulatory system's efficacy), along with the tempting pun.
