    Question What nickname did you pick for the player character?

    Just curious, since I've always found it tricky to decide on one.

    For my part, I usually make up a nickname by shortening the name I originally picked. So, for instance, I picked the nickname Cat for Katrina on my first playthrough; Alex for Alexandra on my second; and Ven for Raven on my fourth. On my third playthrough, I had named myself Ilmarinen, and couldn't think of a good nickname, so I decided to just have Ilmarinen as the nickname. On my current playthrough I named myself Fox, which obviously is hard to shorten, so I picked the nickname Fox-chan.
    Don't ask me why, 'cause I don't know
    Don't ask me how I'm gonna solve this on my own


    Just call me Storm. I'm a girl, by the way.

    On Y, I went with My Lord to make my character look super important (and because I couldn't come up with anything else).
    On my current save file on X, I picked HotStuff as a joke (and because I couldn't come up with anything else).

    Next time I replay X, I think I'll just go with my real life nickname or a variation of it.

    On X, where I play as the Male character, I gave him the nickname Master because I couldn't think of anything better. I enjoyed seeing my rivals calling me Master all the time when I met them in the game, so it turned out great.

    On Y, where I play as the Female character, I gave her the nickname Princess. This was because I think its a fun nickname for a Female character, and it goes well with the actual name I gave her, creating two references to other things.

    I also use these same two nicknames for my characters in Join Avenue on B2/W2 so I guess they weren't the most unique, but I'm still satisfied with how they turned out.

    I picked Kirby even though my character is a girl. I'm obsessed with the Kirby games is why that happened. I also used that name in White.
    Edit: Oh right... Your friends ask for a nickname. I totally forgot! I chose Keeby. ..It's also Kirby related.

    In X my character is named Teena Marie and her nickname is Lady T which was the singer's nickname and it's crazy that I didn't need to customize it.

    It usually depends on the name I use, but usually, I stick with a particular nickname for any name.

    With my default name, Earth, I use the nickname 'E-Cat'. It's a bit of a reference to my first AC:NL town- one of my villagers decided to call me E-Cat, and I've used it ever since. I have been highly tempted to nickname myself E-Mail, though.

    With my typical male name, Tao, I called myself T-Bone in reference to the steak. It was a perfect opportunity.

    Other times, though, it depends. One time I didn't even use a nickname at all. I just went by Lore. Now, I'm hopping on the honorific bandwagon and calling myself 'Lord Locke' in this run. It's not as fun as I expected.

    Last two games I used Raven and Jet. It takes me a while to come up with a name that I like, especially since its permanent for that play through and half of my games I never restart because of all of the items and stuff that I'd lose.

    I'm pretty sure I did the very uncreative mistress/master thing. I think I don't actually remember 100% haha

    I chose Benja. It's what my girlfriend calls me so I thought it would be good. It's getting kind of cringeworthy though the more I see it in game.

    I always pick Brandon because that's my real name lol. I'm not very creative when it comes to nicknames.

    For my game, since I was playing as the girl despite being a dude, I named my character "Ayla". This is because this would have been my first name if I was born a girl. I thought it was a pretty name that suited my kind of heroine well.

    This is Ayla, my proud heroine from Pokemon Sun.
    She's a lively Festival Plaza goer and the fashion queen of Alola.
    She's also a people person and loves to help out fellow
    Pokemon Sunsters and Moonsters.

    evolving Pokemon, getting Dex entries, or need some Sun-exclusive
    Festival Plaza shop. I may be able to help you out.

    I use Katsu in nearly every game. It's just my nickname in real life.

    I just put my first and middle initials I think. I don't have a nickname in real life so I didn't bother thinking of one for the game.

    I used my old irl name when I played Y. I probably will never use that name again though, but it was okay while it lasted.

    I used my real name for my character's name (because it's a luxury now, as I have an 8 letter name and prior to XY I was unable to use it). However, my character's nickname was "daddy" for the memes.

    The very, very, very first run through I had of Pokemon Y, I had named my character, "Yuma". I can't exactly recall why.

    Gay, happy triox! Wait, gay also means happy, right? :P Riiight?

    Mew is my favorite pokemon
    I have a MAJOR crush on korrina and i think she's totally awesome! best gym leader ever. Should be a champion. May make a club for her...
    I have autism and try to keep an open mind about things. My life can get weird.

    Keep in mind that, while i do fangirl, i am not interested in any online relationships. I prefer fiction, and, one day, real life, if it turns out it'll 'work' for me. :P And uhh...i guess either gender is fine...as long as they don't peeve me too much.
