View Full Version : What do you name your character in Pokemon games?

May 18th, 2004, 1:46 PM
I usually use:
Flora (for the girl)
サトシ (in the Japanese versions)

Maybe some more but those are the most common. One of my friends always names her character Pika... no matter what game ><

Oh yeah, I use タナカ alot, too.

サトシ= Satoshi
タナカ= Tanaka

If I play a female, it's Winter. If I play a male, it's usually Michael. If I don't have a choice, I'll name them Winter.

I used to name all my characters Umbra (I still go by the name of Walks-the-Umbra in some places), but I lost touch with that name, and Winter seems to suit me better.

lol, I've always used AJ or Aj. On a japanese rom, I just looked for symbols that looked like "A" and "J" LOL. Then I got a book on Japanese writting, and tried putting that in. Then I couldn't find "J (ay)"

May 20th, 2004, 3:38 AM
I call myself Tig, Stephen or Steve, but when it's a girl I call her Marina (dunno it just seems like a cool name)

May 20th, 2004, 3:41 AM
AJ in Japanese would be エージェー
