References to game material in title/description

Are references to Pokemon/Ingress nominations in the title/description (I most commonly see it in the description) 1* nominations? I've come across quite a few over the past few days and cant seem to find anything in the base criteria.

Picture is for reference.

    1 star -> bad title/description, as long as the objec itself isnt game related

    Title and Description

    Rate the quality of the nomination’s title and description based on the following criteria.

    Give high ratings to:

    • Official titles (if available) or creative titles/descriptions (as long as they add value to the Wayspot)
    • Titles and descriptions with correct spelling/capitalization/grammar
    • Titles and descriptions that include the artist’s name (for murals, statues, etc.)

    Give low ratings to: 

    • Titles and descriptions that do not match the Wayspot
    • Titles and descriptions with player names or game-specific information (artist names are acceptable)
    • Titles and descriptions with promotional content, URLs, or HTML tags
    • Titles and descriptions that are derogatory/offensive
    • Titles and descriptions with emoticons or emojis
    • Descriptions copied directly from other sources

    Maybe with the new release, Niantic can filter these out before the nomination is submitted, giving nominators a chance to put something valid instead of wasting a nomination slot.

  • I guess I'm bad at reading if I missed that line in the guidelines. Thanks everyone!
