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.

To this day forward, I will be known as Wolf.

LordGoomy -> Wolf
It's my favorite animal, so why not? Also, a lot of people say I act like a wolf, anyways...

Such a majestic creature...

So you live in a pack, savagely kill deer and eat raw meat? o.O?
Sciz, I'm not that dumb. I live in a pack, yes, but I savagely kill MOOSE, and eat raw meat FRESH.
Animals that do that remind me of a royal Goomy.
Goomy and wolves are keewl.

My failed try at shortening Draconic Umbreon: Umbraconic xD

"I want to change my name"
^ sounds like you think PM changes your name for you
Just making sure you know, you have to change your own name manually.
It says not available yet. When?

Qwerty Zoom --> Fated Fathom ♠


The Keyboard demands a break. It got high BP, and is gonna be sleeping through the next season. For now though, I'm gonna use the name my brother uses.

That's right,
Qwerty Zoom --> мαунєм נυηαzαя∂ ☣

(may the haters hate)

Really, no reason, not gonna keep it for a super long time anyways. My whole profile content will completely change as well by the way.

Note: I did in fact use that name for 2 days only, I changed now to...

Fated Fathom ♠

That's right, just one special character, and oh by the way, I'm not reverting back this season :P

Your name, your game, but you're gonna regret it fo'reals :3
It's annoying Zoom, and the ones who don't think so are usually more annoying, xD

Question: Should my username be changed?

It's great to feel pimp, but I was thinking about something like

Kawaii Piplup


With Terlor being dubbed, someone must take his place as the kawaii one.
kawaai piplup sounds nice
I decided to just stick with Pimplup for now.
how bout kawaii pimplup

I'm thinking go to either
1.Keep Ssj Magikarp
2. Change Name to Drew
3. Or change it to Le King of Dragons
Which should I choose ?

1. Magikarp jokes aren't funny unless they're funny. And this is not.

2. Is that your real name?

3. I like this one.
well he wont be able to change his name anytime soon until the last day of name change thanks to his ban
I like how Ayan says that and then he makes one of his suggestible names 'MagikarpShouldBeUber'.
Yeah, Drew. xD
Lol but that was funny at the time.
Le King of Dragons.  Or whatever you want.
Le King of Dragons... Le KoD... KoD... copying Sempi imo.
^^ I'm glad I wasn't the only one.

I'm dropping the Infernape and adding an Alpha. Which makes me:

Alpha Burn

Alternatively, I could be Alpha Burner. which do you think?

tbh, I liked InfernapeBurn. But if I had to choose between Alpha Burn or Alpha Burner, I would choose Alpha Burn.
Burn not Burner. Burner sounds too long.
But it's cooler too ;~;

And ReadyAimFire is much longer :D?
BURNer is COOLer.

I don't know how I noticed that. xD
But I like Alpha Burn.
