It is possible that as the number of Pokémon you have captured in Pokémon Go continues to increase, you will run with monsters whose names are difficult to keep straight in your head. The names of the Pokémon can, thankfully, be altered with a decent level of convenience immediately from within the game itself. This can be done directly within the Pokémon Go app. With my assistance, you will become familiar with all of its nuances.
How to Change Pokémon Names in Pokémon Go
Because the producers frequently update Pokémon Go, you should check to make sure that you are always playing the most recent version of the game. Every update typically brings about the addition of new functionality, while also removing undesirable elements from the overall experience. The renaming feature can still be used as of the 0.33.0 version of the software.
Change your Pokémon’s name in Pokémon Go by following these steps:
1. Start playing Pokémon Go by opening the app and tapping the Poke ball that appears at the bottom of the screen.
2. On the screen that pops up, choose the Pokémon choice that looks like a Pikachu. When you select this option, you will be taken to a list of all of the Pokémon that you have captured.
3. Locate the Pokémon whose name you wish to change and then tap on it to open up its statistical information.
4. You’ll see the Pokémon’s name just below the Pokémon itself, along with an indicator that looks like a pencil to indicate that the name can be edited.
