Follow TV Tropes
Removed a lot of examples I considered to be personally unfitting:
Oh look, these Pokemon have some elongated between their legs. It clearly must be a PENIS!
Clearly when the Japanese game-makers designed the move Flash, they knew about the sexual implications the word had in English. Maybe some of the thread could be reinserted, but I just removed the entire thing to reduce confusion.
How is making a mob-themed Pokemon getting past the radar? Team Rocket from the very first video game was a clear mob/Yakuza group.
Yet another case of pointing out that some part of a Pokemon's anatomy looks slightly suggestive. Given Magmar's bill-like mouth, it's more likely it was named after the booby bird. Furthermore, according to Jim Breen's Japanese dictionary, the word "boobi" in Japanese actually refers to a "booby prize." Personally, I think the head looks more like a butt, but I'm not posting about it in the article.
The very entry itself points out it isn't getting anything pass the radar.
Because Pokemon was made in Britain, right? And would there be any reasonable explanation for why the creators would want the character to be displaying an obscene gesture purposefully?
Gorebyss isn't a mermaid; it's a fish. The shells are just its fins. Also, this is another gameplay mechanic that can happen to seem just the tiny bit suggestive, even though Gorebyss clearly gets the move from its pre-evolution Clamperl and its shelless counterpart Huntail has the move available too.
Apparently, someone took that the Marill evolutionary line's gender mechanics are supposed to be a representation of transgenderism. However, there are plenty of hermaphroditic animals in nature, and it's likely it's a programming oversight as stated in the entry. There is absolutely nothing objectionable here.
This is something that clearly DIDN'T get pass the radar. And I doubt it was intentionally meant to be offensive in the first place.
Toilet Humor explicitly doesn't belong on the Radar page.
If anything was really stretching it, this is it. And I doubt Goddamn is really considered to be inappropriate for television in Japan.
It's clearly stated to not be intentional here.
If this was in the Japanese version, it hardly counts due to different cultural expectations there and yadda yadda.
These TCG examples, while interesting, clearly didn't get pass the censor.
I guess I can't stop anyone from reinserting these, but really?
So there was no censor to get over.
I'm pretty sure the Pokemon are just playing, nothing else. I tried to look up what the original Japanese said, but I couldn't actually find reference to the original quote on Bulbapedia.
I'm pretty sure this is just random letters that didn't get edited out of the US release.
Nothing inappropriate actually happened, and it's hardly hidden.
This manga was never published America, nor anywhere else in the west. (it was only published in English in Singapore)
Again, this was never published in the west. There is no censor to get past here.
This is really stretching it.
Elesa blows a kiss (a heart?) to both player characters in the credits, so I gave that a minor edit.
Some examples I removed, for not seeming to fit the trope. Feel free to debate, of course.
I don't think suicide counts for this trope; it shows up in a lot of stuff. As for Nightmare Fuel, that definitely doesn't count (child-friendly works are famous for it).
Very vague; not a specific example. Most things are more perverted in Japan (sorry, Japan), but is it stuff sneaked past the radar?
Pretty sure off-screen nudity doesn't count; how many supposedly-kid-friendly works employ Naked People Are Funny, after all?
Even if the implication is that they're flinging poop, Toilet Humor is kind of common in children's works. Fairly Odd Parents had a feces-slinging money onscreen.
I see what you're getting at, but I don't see it. It's not blatant enough for us to know for sure. I kept the note about Combusken, though.
Again, offscreen or censored nudity.
...This sounds like a stretch to me...
Another major stretch, IMO.
Mentions the internet mocking it, but in-series it sounds more like Accidental Innuendo.
Again. Stuff joking about it (like the couple with the Onyx and the Cloyster) probably count, but Cloyster itself probably wasn't meant to be a vagina reference. (I don't see it, personally, and I have both.)
It jiggles. And... that's it. It doesn't look like a breast, and there's no connection that I know of between boobs and the word "puff".
(facepalm) Ha Ha You Said X, am I right?
EDIT: Posted this in the wrong section, sorry.

How well does it match the trope?
