I guess I will use something like Erin for the girl, and my name for the boy.

I think I'll just use my name for the boy (my choice) but if I end up using the girl, then maybe Amelia, idk why, I just like that name xD

I just go with my IRL nickname for X and Y. In the past, I'd use the names of the main female character in the anime, i.e. in GSC I named myself Marina, RSE May, and DPPt Dawn. I have restarted most of those games since then and just inserted my own.

Well, obviously I'll be using the girl...and I'll name myself Megan like I always have in every game I played. I may lean towards my irl name, but I feel attached to Megan better.

If I play as a boy, it'd be either Tyler, Thunder, or Bob. Well, I like Bob better. lol

I'll probably change it up, I've used my middle name for most Pokémon games because it's short and simple; but this time around I'll be using Sakura. I've found a liking for the name and what it means.

As always, I'll play with the female and name her Vianey, after my real name.
It's not a common name and it's been the same since Yellow, so why change now?
If I chose the boy, I'll probably name him Daniel (just because I like that name)

Tman. When I play Pokémon, I feel he is my alter ego, my second half. Helps to get lost in the games and ignore the BS of life

I've named myself the names I like. And depending on the sex I choose for my character, of course.

Although, in White 2 I named myself my real name. And to be honest, I did like the experience. But, I prefer using other names that I like more than my real name.

Some of my more recent names include Cody, William, Sophie, Tente, among others. I think I'll do Peter next. Or Maanasa, if I choose female. (From the trailer, it appears the female is Caucasian/Japanese but I don't caaaaaaaaare~.)

I probably won't even use the male protagonist at all because he looks too similar to Hilbert and Nate. I'll name myself Allison in uhhh I guess both of them. It's my go to name lately, so yeah. I might name myself Halcyon, Raeanne, or Austere in one though, just so they're not both Allison.

I'm not sure yet! Probably going to pick the girl because the boy just looks blah. I haven't really been planning things ahead with my names recently and just hoping something comes to me, though hopefully that'll happen this time around. :3 (maybe I'll just go with Nica? )

I'll be naming her Mel. My name's Melanie "Mel", and I've almost always named my character Mel. Once or twice I have used Melanie, though.

I'll use Orange. Why? It's the only color Game Freak hasn't used yet. It's my favorite color and what I've been using as my Pokemon name recentally.

I've always just done my own name, since red/blue. Never thought to change it, i like using my own name. I also always use my best friends name for my rival.

I'll once again pick the boy, name him "Alex" (my real name) and use the official name for the rival. That's what I've always done.

IF I get a 3DS (or by some miracle it's playable on desmume; haven't bought a game since the GBA years u_u)...

After any of my favorite vocaloids (Iroha, Yuki, Luka, SeeU, Mayu, Rin, etc.) and the rival will be named after a male vocaloid. Or after the protagonist of whatever anime/kdrama/manga I happen to be watching/reading. Haven't used my real name since Sapphire.
