Pokemon Black and White Error 13267? Stop Cursing

Warning: this article contains inappropriate language so if you’re the sensitive type, go read something else.

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!

    @Jeremy: You can’t trade pokemon that you hacked. nintendo can tell :(

    @Bobyjoe5000: I don’t know what to say. I thought they cleared up that whole clone glitch back in platinum.

    If Nintendo blocks Froslass from being traded then its blocking the pokemons real name…… or at least when it evolved thats the name it came with…. this is soooo stupid…. froslass is the name it came with and shouldn’t have a nickname just to trade the pokemon that came with that name… STUPID
