Username changes are now closed until the autumn.

It comes around so quickly, doesn't it? It's name change time!

Pokemon Name Rater

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, to give 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 3rd April and close Monday 5th.

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!

If you change your name, please post an answer below with both your old name and new name, so other members know who has changed. Thanks!

closed with the note: Closed until autumn

*Jeopardy theme song*
It truly was april fools....

Swastik --> Frozen Inferno 火

Thanks to Xurkit for the idea. Originally Frigid Inferno but I liked Frozen more. It's also based on one of my Showdown! friend's name "Fierce Inferno." Reference to Kyurem-White so that's cool :D

Why do people call a chinese word a chinese symbol/glyph? A word is a word.

@swastik what are we suppose to call u now?
Call me nothing :]
Hi nothing :]]
That's the symbol that fire blast used
Icy Hot

Xurkit ---> BeastMaster™

Xurkit was a name for one ultra beast. I considered going for a name like Guzz or Poipoii (That's TY's suggestion), but I love all the UBs equally, so that's the reason I want to go with this name. Yay

Giga~Blade X ---> Omega-Blade X

The Omega is the end of everything, the finality of all.

Pointless pretentious quotes aside, I quite like Omega, so this is what we're going with for the next six months!

In 6 months do Infinity (infinity symbol here) Blade X
What do you think about using "Ω" as Ωmega-Blade X? I think it matches Omega Ruby nicely lol.
∞~Blade X
Infinity∞Blade X
sUcH pRetEntIouS noNseNse

With that being said, I’d highly consider

Zyaioapspspsp-Blade X

It’s a name of utmost power, meaning, and superiority

After being sealed in the void for 6 months (something about raging at a Zangoose or smth), Da Viper is coming back! (That does mean I'll be "spamming" sup in chat, but w h o c a r e s ? : )

I'm also thinking Primal Pain, or my favorite name suggestion, Shadow Viper.

Yay da viper is back.
Definitely shadow viper
I vote for Da Viper
I vote Shadow Viper
da viper
I'm prob gonna go for Da Viper, and do Shadow Viper next time. Thanks all.

I would like to change my username for the first time ever.

Hex > Xos

Edit: I chose a different variation, ZXOS. Similar, but I felt it fits me better. :)

edited by
Xos, nice one uwu
Thanks uwu!
Honestly, I say just stick with this, but if you must, then Nerdy Nina works. Keep in mind I use nerd as a compliment
What a great idea. You didn't mean Nerdy Ninja though, did you?
@Hex I believe the comment you're responding to was meant for another answer, which was accidentally converted to a comment on yours :P
Thanks for clarifying that, pal. It did seem slightly off-beat, if you catch my meaning.
Glad we got that sorted.

Changing it to An Asocial Moth. Inverse of a social butterfly.

Don't really have much more to say tbh.

Porygon-Zangoose ---> ManectricMadness

I've been liking this new name idea I had for a little while. Also hits well with my grav, don't you think?

I like Porygon-Zangoose. It is fun. Also if you decide to keep your username just change your grav.
ManectricMadness gives off different vibes than Porygon-Zangoose, and I personally think it fits better!

  • Lizzy
  • Kyogre71

Not sure which yet. Lizzy "matches" my best friend's nickname (Proxy), is a derivative of my middle name, and I think it sounds nice and simple. On the other hand, I kinda want to go back to the original. What do y'all think?

edited by
Kyogre71 is better imo, it's more..iconic
I vote Kyogre71
I vote for the "Or"
Oh my gosh yes, "Or" is definitely the name for me
they did it-
