Looks like Nintendo really didn't like a cancer-causing gene being named 'Pokemon':

Scientific journal Nature reported that Pok?mon USA, the subsidiary company of Nintendo established to control the Pok?mon brand in America, threatened to sue the cancer research center on the understandable grounds that equating Pok?mon with cancer was doing harm to the brand's image. Sloan-Kettering acquiesced to the company's demands and changed the gene's name to the more unobtrusive Zbtb7.
