Probably gonna go with Xander; I'm planning on getting Pokemon X. These days I like to choose names that closely relate to the version I'm playing.

I always name myself something different in every play through of a pokemon game. It'll depend on what the character looks like. This time I'm thinking Trowa after my fav gundam wing character. Just for nostalgia's sake.

I always name my character KJ. I ended up naming my character that when I played my first pokemon game (Yellow, nearly 14 years ago) and it stuck. KJ has always been sort of my nickname in real life because my real name is Kenny.

Actually, I think I may break my usual pattern of using my real name for the character and instead call him Quote instead, due to the male protagonist's resemblance to the protagonist of Cave Story.

I almost always name my protagonist Dave or David, but on game files that I don't save (aka restarts that I end at one point) I name myself whatever the character's name actually is. If the character's name is good enough, I'll name him/her that on my main profile, but it almost never is. (see: hilbert)

My flavor of choosing names completely depends on the type of hack or original game I am playing . For example if I am playing Emerald version then i would make him name Brandon.

I think the character limit is stupid when other important characters have names longer than 7 characters.

L-t-.- -S-u-r-g-e
G-i-o-v-a-n-n-i
F-l-a-n-n-e-r-y
G-a-r-d-e-n-i-a
C-r-a-s-h-e-r- -W-a-k-e
S-h-a-u-n-t-a-l
G-r-i-m-s-l-e-y

These characters make me angry. Why can't the player's name be longer...

If they allow 10 character Pokemon nicknames, why not 10 character names? (I still hate Crasher Wake for having such a long name... lol)

I'm deciding between one of my internet handles, my real name, or possibly just the default/official name.

Or if they do a voiced trailer like for B2W2 maybe I'll look up the character's seiyuu for the trailer and find other roles, and name the character after that. XD

Longer would be awesome, ya. Maybe even 20 characters since these days middle names are more of a thing? XD; Or at least ~creative~ ones are.

I always call myself Sidd in short for my longer name, and if I feel like being the girl character I call her Sidra for some reason aha

I like the idea of adding a surname for more formal situations like a gym battle. It gives the challenge a more important feeling I guess.

I always name myself after my favourite pokemon characters, such as Red and N.

About 90% of the time, I use my nickname that I've had since I was 7 or 8, which is Storm, because I could run pretty damn fast.

I'll most likely be using my real name like always. If I do switch up I'll use my middle name Rashad.
