Say I get two eevees through the GTS, from japan.
They're not nicknamed, so the names are just whateverthehell the japanese name for eevee is.
I then trade them to a friend (they lack a ditto and their eevee is male).

The friend evolves them. What happens to their names?
Does it stay the japanese eevee?
Does it become the japanese for whatever form it evolved into?
Does it become the english for whatever form it evolved into?

I'm pretty sure they become the English names of the evolved Pokemon.

This is because if they weren't nicknamed, the "nickname" flag is turned off, even after trading to a different language, so after evolving, it takes the name of the evolved Pokemon in whatever language the evolution occured on (English).

First of all... if that weird thing of name the eevee has it resulted to be a nickname, the japanese word will stay like his name...

If it doesnt have really a nickname, the eevee will get the name of the evolution in english(if you are playing the (U) game lol)

They would stay Japanese since you can't change the nickname of a Pokemon that isn't yours, and in your case the Pokemon isn't yours because it was traded. The game determines whether it is yours by comparing your ID and SID to the Pokemon's ID and SID, if they match, it is yours.

Yeah the names change to the language of the Pok'emon normally in the game.
Even with the menu translation of the J rom when I evolved my Cyndaquil (named in Japanese, gotten before applying the patch) into Quilava after applying the patch, Quilava was just named in English.

    I'd say there would be more PS5 exclusives...if people could actually buy PS5s.

    I mean, if no-one can buy a PS5, and thus is stuck with PS4 (Pros), then companies would still see some profit from developing PS4 games with PS5 upgrades; meanwhile, if they developed a PS5 game, then everyone who can't get that console won't buy that game, especially at launch.

    well theyre churning them out as fast as they possibly can, not like Xbox or PC are faring much better with the chip shortages

    and games still take 4-6 years to develop regardless, so its not like sony can conjure up new exclusives out of thin air

    Makes me wonder what they have now and are actually hiding from the public

    I hope in the next 5 years they can move on to even more realistic skin renders and not just make characters look like Shiney clay molds
