I thought it was because Nintendo thought the name would clash with Monster in My Pocket so they changed it to the Japanese abbreviation?
Japan has a long history of changing the names of things before they release them in the west, look at a list of Street Fighter characters for example.
They think that we won't think its cool if something has a Japanese name, yet in reality, we like things better in their origional form.
I'm sorry for all the bad stuff I said and all the feelings I hurt.. Please forgive me
