I am having issues when trying to do a search with special characters. (IE. the é in Pokémon)
 
Anything special I have to do to encode my data to you, or is this a bug on your end?

That is a problem that also exists on the site unfortunately. On the site aliases are used to make it possible to search for those games by typing in "Pokemon", but the API search does not take aliases into account.

No, I can't even search for Pokémon either.

@danbopes: I know that. I knew exactly what you were talking about. It's an issue on the site too, not just the API.

Guess this is related the the issue I posted before about roman numerals. Hacked up a solution for that on my end but didn’t think of games like Pokemon with accute accents. 
 
Ugh…
