Pokémon Scarlet and Violet have added a new feature which allows you to rename your Pokémon. This means that you can give your Pokémon a nickname of your choice and show them off to your friends in battle or when trading with someone. Renaming your Pokémon is quite simple, and it adds a great deal of personalization to the game.
The Renaming Process
Renaming your Pokémon in Scarlet and Violet is pretty straightforward. All you need to do is go into the party menu, select the specific Pokémon you wish to rename, then press the “Rename” button. You can then enter a nickname of up to ten characters long, after which you can confirm it. Once confirmed, the new nickname will be displayed next to that particular Pokemon’s sprite whenever it appears on the screen.
However, there are some restrictions when renaming Pokemon. For starters, you cannot use any special characters or punctuation marks in the nicknames. In addition, all nicknames must adhere to Nintendo’s standards for content ratings as well as its etiquette rules. This means that any names deemed inappropriate for children or offensive will not be accepted by the game.
