    Default What do you call your main character?

    What did you call yourself in the game? I have gone with Primal Ruby in OR.

    Sapphire: May or Sapphire

    Colosseum: Wes

    FireRed: Red or Leaf

    XD: Michael

    Diamond: Lucas or Diamond

    Platinum: Dawn or Platinum

    Black: Black or Hilda

    Black 2: Rosa

    X: Serena

    Y: Xavier

    Alpha Sapphire: May

    I know, I've got such a creative flair for names. I don't really have much of a connection to the player characters aside from their design, so I just stick with the defaults almost all the time.

    I always call my character Blaze since that is what my name is.

    It depends. On the newer games, I put my actual name as the name, but when I go back and play the older games, I use the default name of the character that I am playing as. The only one I change is Leaf, I name her Green after the Manga character, although I think it's okay since Nintendo has not yet officially acknowledged that as her canon name.

    I use my actual name most of the time. Otherwise, I just use the canon name.

    If I can't think of another unique name I want to name myself, I just use my real name.

    My trainer names vary a lot. They tend to be influenced by things I am currently highly interested in at the time when I start playing the game in question. The things that inspire them tend to vary a lot too. I don't use my real name in any of my games (I did the first times I played through Silver and Crystal, then never again) since I don't like my real name. I also give a different name for every new trainer so I can keep track of which game every Pokemon is from with ease. I usually try to come up with a trainer name I know I'll like, which isn't always easy, and I have a different problem depending on what gender I am going to play as. For the Male trainers, I usually have a hard time coming up with any likeable names at all, and for the Female trainers, I often have so many good names to choose from that I don't know which one to pick. Below are my names from all games from Gen 4-6 separated by gender, I haven't included Gen 1-3 since I don't remember all the trainer names I had in them and I don't really like all of them either.

    Male trainers:
    Pearl: 16yl
    Platinum: Nathan
    SoulSilver: Fergus
    HeartGold: Foxbert
    Black: Snacko
    Black 2: Gray
    X: Law
    Omega Ruby: Locke

    Female trainers:
    Diamond: Lina
    Platinum #2: Sahara
    HeartGold #2: Bon Bon
    White: Tally
    White 2: Xenith
    Y: Twilight
    Alpha Sapphire: Flora

    On first runs, I use my real name. When I'm revisiting older games to play again, I'll usually use a name that I'm fond of at the time.

    I use my real name, but put it in all in caps to make it feel cooler. Caps are cool.

    Join Ash and Pikachu as they travel to the Tenno Region, a region known for its advanced space program. Along their way towards the Tenno League and becoming a Pokémon Master they'll encounter new Pokémon, new enemies, such as the evil Team Planetary, and, of course, a certain trio of Team Rocket members, along with friends new and old.
    Check it out!

    A lot of times on my first play through on a new generation, I just use my real name. When I replay older games or get other games from the same generation I name myself something random.

    First time I'm playing through a Pokemon game I usually use my name. When I replay them for whatever reason I usually go with one of the default names.

    I usually name my trainer after a female character I'm into at that point, I'm female so prefer playing as a female. Before X came out I was watching a lot of Team Rocket centred anime episodes so I named my X character Jessie, while for OR I was watching an old cartoon I enjoyed when I was younger so named my trainer Pamela after the main antagonist. Before XY I just used a random name I liked. For Sun and Moon I plan on calling my trainer Lovrina after the Pokemon XD character because I've been enjoying playing XD again lately and she's my favourite character from the game. Seeing as it's still a long time till release I may change my mind but this is what I'm going with for now.

    I used to use my real name then I got fed up, mostly because I am not that fond of it. Soooooooooo this is what I have named my characters so far in Pokemon:

    Fire Red: Raven/Zelda/Micahiah/My real name

    Sapphire: I can't remember..

    Diamond: Katyx/Kalyx/Kalexie (tried giving my name a twist... *^*)

    SoulSilver: Kalyx

    Black: Kalex

    White 2: Lucina

    Y: Armada

    Alpha Sapphire: Armada

    Red (Virtual Console): Azazel (No female character so I went with my favorite Demon name *^*)

    I don't really know if I will still be sticking with Armada. I like the name, but I've been thinking about switching it up again. Most of my second copies/replays go by Archangel.

    I normally just use my real name, but when I was a kid playing Pokemon Red for the first time I named myself Red.

    Wolfgang or just simply Wolf. Been doing that since the start, and it's a name I always give characters in everything, so yeah. Just kind of a habit by now.

    In Alpha Sapphire and Omega Ruby I used my real name (Anna) and in previous games I used popular names that I liked. ^^;

    Ever since I got my dogs and started playing again I've named the males Benny and the females Wendy after the dogs of course.

    I've been picking strange names like Wishy in LeafGreen, Jirachi in Pearl, Kirby in White and Y, Drawcia in Alpha Sapphire. In all my other games, it either has the previous owner's name still there (I have this weird thing about usually not wanting to restart), or it's one of my brother's games.

    Here are the names I can remember:

    Platinum: Tayuya
    Black: Lyra
    White: Silver
    Black 2: Nate
    White 2: Solana
    X: Michael
    Y: Xion
    Alpha Sapphire: Karis
    Omega Ruby: Robin

    I will likely be naming one of the main characters from Sun/Moon Katie.
