I was hoping someone could help me with this.
I've been playing through the pokemon games in order of release trying to go for 100% completion of the game while still enjoying the experience. In Generation II, I went as far as to breed every species of pokemon possible so that they'd have things like my OT and better-rounded stats overall. I've continued this trend into the Generation III games but I've run into something that just doesn't make sense to me. On my Pokemon Ruby save I've hatched a Cleffa and nicknamed it "PII", the romanization of Cleffa's japanese name. I'm prompted with this error:
I'm able to untick Nickname on PKHeX and revert the name to "CLEFFA" and it appears as legal. I've even tried inputting the nickname as "Pii" and it appears legal, but for some reason I get the error when I use "PII" instead. I nicknamed Cleffa in-game so my initial thought that "PII" might be censored was dismissed. I'm partly hoping that maybe this is a bug with PKHeX, but if it isn't, is there some way to get this Cleffa to appear as legal with "PII" for a nickname. I know a logical solution would be to use "Pii" instead, but seeing as how the names in this generation of games is in all caps, I was hoping to keep my Pokemon names' format uniform.
Here's the pk3: 173 - PII - 1F7E1E048AFD.pk3
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!
