Do you want to change your trainer’s nickname in Pokémon Go? If you didn’t give yourself a nice name during the sign up of the game, you have the option to get it now. Frankly speaking, I couldn’t choose a cool name at the beginning as I was so desperate to start playing the game that I didn’t wish to waste a single moment. Later, I did want to have a fabulous name but there was no option.



Pokémon Go now allows you to change your player’s name. However, you can get it done only once. As your name will be displayed to other players, make sure to choose the right one. Let’s cross over to find out!
