Name changes now closed.

Name Rater

It's name change time again! As usual this thread is open for a few days before the names can be changed. This gives everyone time to see they are coming, and also some people like to ask for opinions on names so you can post an answer here for that.

Name changes will open tomorrow (Friday) evening and close Monday evening/Tuesday morning.

If you change your name, please post an answer stating your old name and new name. This makes it easier for everyone to know who's who.

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

  • The maximum number of characters for usernames is 20. This includes all letters, numbers, symbols and spaces.
  • Due to technical restrictions these 3 characters cannot be used: @ + /
  • Usernames may not contain 'Pokemaster' or any profanity in them.
  • Invisible characters (e.g. zero-width spaces) are not allowed. Regular spaces are fine.

Ehhh I like my name, but changing it only happens once in a blue moon.
Don't forget to notify everyone to write their username changes on this page to avoid confusion.

I can't be the only one who's suspicious that this is happening on April 1 e.e

I can't decide between Mega_Septile2 and Mega_Septile.
I'll probably go with the last choice.

Maybe go for Mega Sceptile.
Mega Sceptile or mega_sceptile because lowercase letters better suit the underscore.

Oh my gosh I've been pondering this for ages and I just don't know.

Spook – Short, professional, one of my favourite words.
Railgunbot - Another one of my favourite words plus "bot."
Big Dreemur - Big goat burger daddy.
GreedoShotFirst - Unpopular opinions!
Sheev - It's fun to say.

Or something else related to my small, geeky life. I'm leaning towards Spook or GreedoShotFirst.

Spook sounds cool.
Maybe GreedoBot or RailGunBot.
Railgunbot or Big Dreemur imo. If I were you I'd consider Goatfather too xD

AreWeFreshYet? ----> PX

It's about time I stuck with something, and this is how most people know me anyway.

Strange. I know you as Wavelength. Are you sure the other DBers weren't brainwashed?
No you just weren't active 3 years ago ~
Are you sure that this website really existed three years ago and Pokemaster isn't just trying to make it look old?
He could be trying to make it look young
lol sumwun it did exist 4 years ago (or 3 years whatever) I joined in 2012.

Scilicet > TallyHo

Tally because I plan on keeping Talonflame as my grav for a while, and I occasionally scream 'TALLYHO' in my sleep. Also, people call me ho sometimes. >:x

I talk in my sleep too. I won't judge.

Double R DJ -> (づಠᴥಠ)づ

Graype = Ray + Peg
Raysins = Ray + Sins

The second option is obviously more correct.
Tbh I'd rather you went back to Rayanelle, but Raysins then.
Raysins, definitely.
Go for TehRaysins, with shiny Pinsir-mega as profile picture. ;)
She played us all for fools.

I've been waiting too long for this...

some random guy----->Insert Name Here

Edit: had SRG for upwards of 3 years, so it's time for that to change. You can still call me SRG, Random, or Guy in chat or on my wall though, because INH or Insert is just weird.

Some Normal Guy?
Love it. OCD is my jam.
I do love the normal type... And I have waited at least 3 years to change it to this so I guess OCD is my jam too.

AegiDash -> DA830

Going back to my original.

Hold on.
"DA" can be interpretated as "the"
830 = 8,3,0
Add 3 and 8 to make 11.
What has 11 letters?
"Illuminatis" is the plural of "illuminati"
"The" + "Illuminati"
This isn't a coincidence.
Itanimulli demrifnoc
How have I not noticed this before…

The fact that my name isn't capitalized is bothering me so I might as well change it now that the opportunity has presented itself.


Shining Ruby

Ruby the Furret

Alpha the Furret

I'm not very creative xD Open to any suggestions
As of now...

alpharuby -> Ruby Furret

edited by
Try just "Ruby Furret". It's like the name you chose, but without the "The". Honestly I think it's a pretty cool name!
Ruby Furret is both an awesome username and a great name for a band in the Pokemon world.

I'mma change my name to:
"THIS IS HOENN" cuz I really like the Hoenn region. Or maybe ⤜(◉ᗜ◉)⤏. I really like ⤜(◉ᗜ◉)⤏.

My final decision:
pokemontrainersamuel ----> Squirtle (◥▶ω◀◤)

edited by
Please go with the first one.
Why? Because it's easier to address me as?

"A Hipster Zoroark". Because reasons, I suppose.

This is Charphy, btw.

I'd like to get my name changed from LOPD220009 to TheOnlyInfernape

In case it wasn't clear, you'll be able to change your username yourself. You'll be able to do this through your profile page throughout this weekend.
I've tried but it doesn't letme change it, am I doing something wrong?

Anyway, yeah!
