When we're wondering whether you meant something to be offensive, part of the question is, "what possible non-offensive meaning could you have had?"

So, OP, when you named a Magikarp/Gyrados after Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, what non-offensive meaning did you have?


i didn't mean it to be offensive, the CP level - which is 1944 for this one- is at random, I couldn't name it Nazi or hitler now could I?
that's the only other thing that came to mind


That's not the point - the point is, you had some idea in mind when you named your Magikarp or Gyrados PTSD. What was it?

While I personally don't find it offensive, I do wonder why you would name your pokemon PTSD in the first place (other than to purposely piss people off).

So its supposed to be some kind of WW2 joke? I don't think its offensive, but its not really funny or clever either.

Yeah, I don't personally find it offensive, but I do think it's unnecessary and, as stated earlier, a little tacky, and I can't exactly blame the people who were offended.

Gyarados learns Ice Fang, which would be 4x as effective against Dragonite. I don't play Pokemon Go, though. Dunno if the mechanics are different there than real Pokemon games.

Neither do I, but I suggest that Redokami name her next Magikarp POTUS.

Yeah, it looks like the mechanics are different. I started reading some of the posts below and they run some weird sets and they talk about candy lol.

Magikarp make 'murica gr8 again plz

I don't find it offensive but I'm a bit confused why you thought naming a Pokemon that was ever a good idea. Mental illness is a touchy subject. I'm not sure what kind of reaction you expected.....

You could've easily renamed the pokemon crying for attention

at least it'll be you who's the punchline.

It's not offensive, although I can't help but think you purposely named it that in order to illicit some kind of reaction. You could have named it anything in the world and you chose a serious mental disorder.

Tacky yes. I had a cousin who commit suicide from PTSD. Turns out shooting a ~7 year old girl running at your tank with a grenade will do that to you. Turns out an automatic 50 cal will make a person explode if you hit them enough.
gosh I wished I hadn't read this

hope things are better for you......as shallow as it might sound..
