UPDATE: this question is now closed. See our new username changing policy for how to change your username.

If you wish to have your username changed, you've come to the right place! Just post an answer requesting your desired name and it'll be changed. Please note however, that Pokemaster will not change it constantly, so think before you change. If Pokemaster denies your change, he will post a comment explaining why. Thanks to J98 and DT for helping with this.

Some guidelines:

  • Please put your current name as well so that others can see who's changed names recently. For example "Can I change my name from Pokemaster to UberPokemaster?"
  • Answers will get hidden a week or so after the name is changed.
  • Usernames are limited to 20 characters (including spaces and punctuation).
  • Any normal characters are allowed in usernames except for these 3: @ + /
  • Misleading/invisible characters like hidden spaces or soft hyphens are not allowed.
  • Usernames may not contain "Pokemaster" to avoid confusion, nor contain swear words.
  • If a user has a username you would like, you may "seize" it, as long as that user has no activity and registered more than 6 months ago.
  • You must keep your username for at least 3 months, so think before you change it. *
  • To make this easy for Pokemaster, please keep all fonts regular, and bold the name change.

Since so many people apparently can't count 3 months, here's a hint: if you change your username 15th January you cannot change it again until 15th April. If you changed 15th November it lasts until 15th February. I recommend you make a note in your profile when you can change. Or just choose a good name and stick with it ;)

I'm a bad decision maker and dont like to make decisions. I decided on my last name and i hated it so Ill let you guys choose for me this time. :P
So here are my choices:
-CWegz: currently my showdown name and kinda my nickname at school.
-Jolteon: my favorite pokemon and just want to take out the jovial part. Ive hated that part of my name for a while. I dont know why. I just did.
-Ronnoc: This was my original name and I've just been considering it for a while. For those of you who dont know, it's just my name spelled backwards.

Well thank you guys for this and below is the talley if you guys decide to vote.
-CWegz: 3
-Jolteon: 2
-Ronnoc: 5
After a week or so Ill pick the one with the most votes and stick with it. Thank you :)

Love your new name.

Thanks! Your name is really epic as well, Denno. But that episode scared me! And thank you too Pika! I'm glad you like it ^w^
