Hello all!

As per the recent username change system, supporters are now permitted to change their name an extra time per year. This brings you guys to three total changes per year.

If you're a Platinum tier supporter, you are eligible for two extra changes beyond the May and November requests, bringing it to four changes per year. We decided against Platinum supporters having unlimited name changes to encourage people to think more carefully about their desired username and lessen server strain from frequent changes.

Please use this thread for all extra name change requests!

For further information, the most recent name change thread can be found here. This includes all name change guidelines which must be followed.

If you wish to take an existing username, you may do so if all of the following criteria are met:

1) The account has not logged in for four or more years;
2) The account has not made any posts;
3) The account not does not belong to a banned member;
4) You have at least 100 posts.


If you're not sure if the name you want is available, feel free to use the username checker (http://www.pokecommunity.com/usernamecheck.php) to verify.

Please follow the below format in this thread for EXTRA* username changes:

Old username:
New username:
(Any related notes, if any)
*if the normal public thread is open and you haven't yet used it during the current session, please use that thread instead.

Hey! You need at least 100 posts to use a taken username. Feel free to post again once you get there. =)

Hi! I'm Fairy's all account so feel free to ignore this but since I'm a supporter I figure I'd see if I qualify for a name change!

Old username: Nymphali~
New username: Dreadqueen
(Any related notes, if any): This username is currently not taken by anyone. But seriously if there's at all a chance that this causes unnecessary server strain than don't do it. The only reason I really want the change is so I have a username with 10 characters so when I make flairs for people with long names I can better plot things out, if that makes sense! I also think Nymphali might be a fairly popular username (being French for Sylveon) and I don't want to steal their thunder!

As we recall, your alt was made supporter just so you could test flairs, so not sure it "qualifies"...

But there's also no harm, really, so I did it. Hope this will help your design business! :)

Somebody stole Clover. :cry:

I remember a time when everyone was using special characters / symbols in their username. Is that still allowed? Even invisible characters?

Invisible characters would only confuse people, in case you mean to appear as if your name was Clover but not actually being it.

Other strange characters should be fine, even though they are annoying and bothersome and I personally groan whenever I see them in usernames d: have it your way.

Thanks for the info! I was mostly just curious. Strange characters and symbols can seem a little pretentious in usernames, yes. xD

What exactly do you mean by confuse people, though?

(you don't have to listen to my preferences though, haha, you are allowed to use other characters, afaik)

I mean if you would make your new name something like "Clover " with like, an invisible character after the Clover, you can see how people would think you were the same person, right? You could argue something like ".Clover" would be confusing too, but at least a . isn't invisible d:

You could vary it up, like "Four-Leaf Clover" or something. Sure that's probably available.

Ah, I understand what you mean, but I don't think it would be much of an issue seeing as their account has been inactive and their username is mostly capitalised. :b Otherwise I wouldn't try to steal a name if the person was active!

That's definitely an option but I've always been a stickler for one-word names haha. It's like this obsessive-compulsive rule of mine. :b
