They are written is special fonts, then copy/pasted into the username bar. They don't show up when you search for their user page (for example, "http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/user/fizz" doesn't show anything) if you use your regular computer font. However, if you copy/paste their name from somewhere on the DB ("http://pokemondb.net/pokebase/user/ƒιzz") it works.

Websites like this one allow you to experiment with funky fonts. For example, from that one site I can do:


Or you can use websites like this to flip text around:


You can also add keyboard symbols to your username, for example:

✓ ♥ ☮ ▲ → ← ♀ ♂ ✤ ♫ ★ ✦ ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°

I'm no expert on how the coding of this website works, so I don't know if it will accept some of the wackier fonts* or the upside-down one, but I'm 99% sure this is how these users get their funky names.

*Actually, if you go the the first link, the "Fraktur" font will not show up in this answer. So there are fonts that the website will not allow.

It's basically the equivalent of putting a bunch of X's around your name.
XxPXxX for example
Worth mentioning, please do not go and copy paste my username every time you want to refer to it. You can type my name out normally, I don't mind at all.
Well thanks. I can do that in the next user name change.
But why use cool fonts when you can use exclamation points, apostrophes, black dots and hyphens instead...
