Username changes are now closed until December.

OK it's that time again!

Name rater

Name changes will be unlocked from Friday 5th Sept and will run until Sunday morning (maybe slightly longer, but no guarantees).

I've opened the thread now so everyone has a heads up. And some people like to ask others for opinions on changes - if that's the case post an answer with the options you're considering and others can comment. (If you definitely know what you're changing to, please don't post until you've actually changed it this weekend.)

Updating usernames is done by going to your user page and clicking "Edit my account" (direct shortcut link here).

Username restrictions:

  • Usernames may not contain 'Pokemaster' in them, nor profanity.
  • Due to technical restrictions these 3 characters cannot be used: @ + /
  • Invisible characters (e.g. zero-width spaces) are not allowed. Regular spaces are fine.
  • The maximum number of characters for usernames is 20. This includes all letters, numbers, symbols and spaces.

Kawaii Terlor -----> Sir Terlor

Yeah that's right, i have been knighted by none else but her majesty the queen!
Here's visual proof:

thy Terlor is dabass.

You and Dan can sir together.
Not even a proper Sir imo
Now to think of it the Queen looks like she's all 'I'll knight you or I'll kill you ol' granny style'...

Much better as 'Dr Dude' imo.
yes, indeed. "dOkTOrr D00d?" was just meant as a joke, and then change it back just before the name change period ended, but then I forgot .3.
You could've just used your email account right?

Yes! Although it needs a space ;)
And what do you mean by 'leave'?
You better not mean what I'm thinking? :/
Leave as in stay but not answer questions as frequently until I feel better w/ myself.
What are you thinking?
He's probably thinking as in leaving the site.
↑ I thought you meant you were leaving the site for a lengthy period of time.
Are you getting rid of that weird ϝ?
i like the symbol
I hated it! It was ugly and sheet

I'm gonna go to -[Ninja'd-French-Frog]- cos Greninja still rox.

On second thought -[Ninja'd-Greninja]- sounds better. Tell me what you think.

Or maybe -[Iron-Frog]- or [MEGA] Metal Ninja.

Wait, the perfect name would be ~[|Greninja-Skywalker|]~

enter image description here

BTW, I already changed my Grav.

Phoebus Apollo~ --> FallenFury13

Why the "13"?
Because FallenFury69 was taken.

Imo just Fallen Fury. But that's just me. :D

Commando Ducklett

I am strongly leaning toward Commando Ducklett, what do you guys think?


There is this one username I might want to keep for a while. It will be so awesome, that even the mods will bow(not sure tho) to me. Everybody would want this name so badly. I'll tell you guys what it is. It is

Some of you already know what name I want~
Leo1697------>ƒєηяιя: тнє υηвσυη∂
(Or Fenrir: the unbound for people that can't read that ;o)
enter image description here

Looks like it says "mhe" instead of the
That "m" looks nothing like a T.
I don't know what happened to it, I put it through the fancy text maker-ma-jinger, it had the "t" in it, copy pasted it over, and it turned into a m :/ (even in editing it shows as a T)
I find smite to have an interesting mechanic, but is a bit dull in teamfights, the jungle and roster than League or even Dota.

And so, we have a winner

Victini Victory is back, everyone!

So, here are the options:

  1. Munchlax Forever - ONE

  2. Victini Victory - SIX

  3. MagikarpShouldBeUber - THREE

  4. Beautifly Blade - ONE

  5. Raised By Wolves - TWO

  6. ElectricShockRotom - ONE

Choose wisely! Vote, now! The votes will go on until SATURDAY, then I will change the name and keep it forever. Ties will result in flipping a coin. GO!

Munchlax Forever, the first name I had ever on the DB. Oh, the memories! The wonder! The awkwardness with Rio!

Victini Victory, the name I had when I was really popular and active here on the DB. Had lots of friends around this time. The popularity! The activeness! The JirachiCelebiMew!

MagikarpShouldBeUber, the joke of a name I made with the user Absol. In this time, I first indulged in the world of metagame. The bad jokes! The metagame! The uber!

Beautifly Blade, the name I picked during my love of Beautifly stage. Also shows with my gravatar, which I keep forgetting to change. The love! The blades! The fun!

Raised By Wolves, hmm, didn't keep this one for long actually. Got the idea from DT's profile, actually. It's a cool name, though. No memories...

ElectricShockRotom, the name that brings back memories of a sadder time when all my friends began to leave. Had a bit of a breakdown, not gonna expand on that. The sadness! The depression! The breakdowns!

So, based off this information (which is useless) pick wisely.

magikarp should be uber
Victini Victory! Victory Victini!

Sry for caps but it's worth it
Raised by wolves is from lupus i bet
VV used that name before Lupus was here lol
