Infinite Invalid Word Filter.


Recommended Posts

So my trainer name has "wtf" in it.
So. Everything on my account since launch has been wtf.
So everything has always been flagged with Invalid Word Filter "wtf"
So I'm just wondering if this is a problem?
I mean there hasn't been once since then but eh.

were you able to name yourself WTF using the Switch, or did you have to transfer the save to the PC to give yourself that name

I named myself when I purchased the game.
No alterations.

are you certain? I tried a new save with wtf and WTF, and the game won't allow it.

I promise.
I'm not going to display my full IGN but I always use wtf in front of it.
When the game first released I named my trainer this name.
I could see now since all of the past trolling and such as it could be a flag.
But in the beginning I was able to use wtf(my real name).

Made by the switch, no alterations.

Edit:
Should I go into PKHex and change it?
Note; this account has never touched my other Switch that does this fancy work and I have the other version of the game on that Switch.
So my main account is not involved with this. Which is the "wtf" one.

@Kaphotics Just a few tests, I was able to name my characters "wtfhi", "wtf hi", "wtf-hi", "wtf_hi"

was there no underscore or space right after the "wtf"?

@Kaphotics I was able to name my characters "wtfhi" and "wtf hi"

Not sure if you saw my edit.

My name is not ben but it's for example "wtfben" and it always has been since the minute that the game came out.
But using PKhex for a few months and always seeing the flag. I thought I would finally just bring it up.
Nothing has happened to me since launch.
I've traded thousands, I've battled online in a competitive manner, etc.

Didn't see your edit.

Also, if you didn't see it in my quote, I tagged Kaphotics to inform him.
It was done so that he can know that PKHeX probably can tweak its checks a bit, since the game does allow it if combined with other text.

As such, no need to change it just yet. Wait for PKHeX to update the checks (if necessary).

Alright, thank you very much!
