It's time for a new name-change period! I'll probably stick to doing these around twice a year; I don't see a need to change names more often than that.

Pokemon Name Rater Sun Moon

If you would like to change your username, you can do so very soon. 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. You may also wish to post an answer asking for others' opinions on possible names you're considering.

Username changes will open Saturday 1st September and close Monday 3rd.

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.

You will keep the username you choose for another six months, so ensure that the name you choose is one that you like! Once you have changed, please post an answer with both your old name and new name, so other members know who has changed. Thanks!

That was funny. Thanks for the laugh.
@EdDaBoss Please use answers for asking about your username, not comments. But hurry up if you're gonna change, you only have a few hours left :)

P.S. why not go for Ed(DropDa)Bass?
Listen to Pokemaster! He knows stuff.
Noooooo. I missed it! I wanted to be The Lonely Mimikyu

If you kidnap cars then what do you use to drive away with the car? Do you use the car you just carnapped? If so, wouldn’t that be grand-theft auto? Would GTA and kidnapping be classified as different crimes? My head hurts now.
No, I just pick up the car and run away with it. Obviously.
Understandable have a great day.
change your name back to crapper pls
too late lol

Ёṡṗëöṅäġë >>>>>> ᴏᴄᴛᴀʟᴍᴀʀɪ

Previous Edit: I'm choosing my name now. Thanks,! Also, I was impatient and I didn't want to wait until Sep 1st. So my name is going to be.... Splatooneon! Congratulations to Pokemon Guy for getting the 1/10 chance of having my name changed to his own choice!

I felt like Splatooneon was a little too uninteresting, so I made my name MewCreation-Style!

EDIT: Sorry for the spam! This is the last edit! I just remembered I'm lying to the new users by having "eon" in my name. So now my new name is Octalmari! SmellYaLater!

crap you just reminded me. I need to stay true to my words. ButterScotchfairytype♥ is the last time I'm going to lie to my peers. I guess I'm coming back to
@Ёṡṗëöṅäġë, So you chose one of my names since your profile says you don't like the Eeveelutions?
@ThunderClapper I used to choose this one. WheelDecide happened to be the same method I used to choose Splatooneon.
I got all excited too... Oh well, Splatooneon will rest in piece.
@Ёṡṗëöṅäġë, Oh yeah, I forgot you used for decide your previous-gonna be-almost name.

DA830 to gaym7b5.
I've had DA830 for quite a while. gaymb75 is consistent with my discord username anyways.

Just hid a chain of comments. There's really no reason to debate possibly controversial subjects on a Pokemon website.
It's a joke lol!

From MoonlitMadness 2 octazooka

Cool. Did you draw that yourself?
So... you said you never heard of Splatoon and yet your Gravatar is Octillery as Dj Octavio. Okay.
he probs doesn't know who dj octavio is either. so let me explain. mr dj octavio is the final boss and main antagonist of splatoon 1. octoling being main antagonist of 2 i think? i havn't got the octopass yet :/
@KirbyCuteKing Dj Octavio is also the final boss and antagonist of Splatoon 2. Not to be confused with the final boss of the Splatoon 2 Octo Expansion (Prolly what you meant by Octopass)
My avatar is this guy named Ikalgo not this DJ dude

LeafyBlade --> SceptileNoob

EDIT: leafyBlade --> RobloxianSceptile

Thanks to KirbyCuteKing For the username

Do you really want to go about as Noob?
Your new name will tell people you know nothing about Sceptile and you don't know how to battle competitively with it.
Alternatively it will tell people you're humble.
