I'm just going to go with one of my norms - Deceit or Shadow.
But if something interesting is revealed later, I might change my name to something new based on that.

In my Black 2, I started something different and named myself Aeris. I might go the same route in this game and name myself something different entirely, maybe something more creative. :3 Like Sylvia or something, cause I want it to be pretty at the same time. XD

As for me, I'll be naming myself Forever, to follow the pattern I had in Unova. :3

In my main game (I haven't decided yet which one will be, if Pokemon X or Y) I always name the guy "Arqui" because it's a short nickname I like using when I play Pokemon.

I'll play the male character first, and I'll name him Bob. That's the only name I've ever used for a male character in Pokemon games (and, in fact, in almost all games). It's just automatic - whenever a game asks for a character name and it's not otherwise important to me, I name him Bob.

If the female player character appears in the game as an NPC if she's not played (like in RSE or DPPt), then the odds are that I won't ever play her, since she'll be a part of the game anyway. If she doesn't appear in the game at all unless she's played (like in FR/LG or B/W) then I'll probably play her, and she'll be named Ann, just like the others.

I'm usually always my name, Nick, and a boy. (durrr) Every now and then I'll be the girl and use like, my cousins or my girlfriends name instead, haha. Depends on the trainer design, though.

most likely I'll pick the female character and name her the romanji of her Japanese name, Like I did in White and White 2. why? why not? I might use her English name if its funny or cool enough.

He shall be "Teckers."

Named hand-in-hand with the community behind my youtube channel, "we are the PokeTeckers!" :D

Thus I will be making a walkthrough series of videos, or maybe a Let's Play series for the game.

I never really name my characters after myself. I might name the female character in the version I get Jamie, after a really close friend ^.^

I'm going to end up following the same formula I do with every game- name the main character after myself (Brendan), and the rival gets to keep their default name.

I'm naming my character Yuna as I might pick the female to keep the pattern I've had since Gen III of picking boy girl,boy,girl, etc.

I've been getting bored of naming all my players "Emily" because it's such a common name but I don't really like their actual names most of the time, any suggestions?

I always just use my own name, it's the names for my party members that I actually put a lot of thought into.

I'll probably name myself.. Devin! Cause every time I play through games I have a story in my mind. I relate the stories with different character's I've played as. I usally just pick random names. For White my name was Dean. For W2 My name was Trey.

Not really sure, but I'll keep the X and Y theme as my name. I'll start off playing with the female on my first run.

I'll either name her Xandra or Yancy.

Not sure what kind of nickname I'll give the Pokemon, maybe some French-African style names (from areas like Niger, Burkina Faso, Benin, or Cote D'Ivoire)

Gonna choose the girl and name her "Lisa" since she's certainly attractive enough to share the same name as my OC trainer

Varion. For my name, it's my fursona's name, my internet name, and my irl nickname <3

As for the rival, if we get the option, It'll be scrawl. It's more of an inside joke to do with my Fursona Varion.

I always use my own name. It helps me feel more immersed in the game when people are calling me by my actual name.

I might name myself Klein, which is a shortening of the username I usually use on the internet (see above ) but more likely I'll use Nikolas, since there isn't enough space to use Nicholas If the default names are cool, I might just use the default name but I have rarely done that.

If there is character customization: My name or a name that I like, but probably default name for rival.

If there is no character customization: Default names.

I'll probably use Nick because it makes a pretty rad acronym.

Nick is Cool, 'kay?
