A chaotic name refers to glitch strings in Pokémon Red, Blue, and Yellow and Pokémon Gold, Silver and Crystal with names that are difficult to predict, and show a degree of randomness.

These may include the following:

  • Strings taken from VRAM, randomized due to VRAM inaccessibility.
  • Strings that are taken by the game searching for terminated 0x50 strings into RAM until the (n)th number is found (the case with examples like - (Generation I move)'s internal name).
  • Strings taken from an area of RAM subject to change.
