Pokemon Black and White Error 13267? Stop Cursing

Having trouble with trading Pokemon over Pokemon Black and White’s Global trade station (GTS)? Are you getting Error 13267 when you know that your Pokemon weren’t hacked? Well you’re not alone, many people are getting this message without understanding why.
In Nintendo’s biggest act of trolling since the creation of Pokemon Sapphire and Ruby, Versions Black and White actively blocks you from trading Pokemon with inappropriate names. If you attempt to trade a Pokemon with the name Fuck, Bitch, Weedle or Froslass, the game recognizes your foul language and blocks the trade, displaying “That Pokemon may not be offered for trade (13267)!”.
You must be thinking, “well what if my child tries to nickname his Kakuna, Penis“? Fear not! Nintendo doesn’t stop at blocking you from trading Pokemon with perfectly legitimate names. It also stops you from renaming your Pokemon after inappropriate words! Any attempt to rename your pokemon “Fuck” (or any dirty word for that matter) will simply block you from confirming the offending name. unless of course you put a space after the offending word, which somehow makes it perfectly acceptable. Thank god someone’s thinking of the children!
