Help Choosing The Right Name

Here are some tips to keep in mind while you’re brainstorming the perfect Charmander nickname.

1. Avoid Using Puns Or Jokes

If you can it is best to avoid using names that are puns or jokes. Not everyone will get the reference and it might end up being more confusing than clever.

2. Make Sure The Name Is Easy To Say And Spell

It might be tempting to choose a really cool, unique name for your Charmander. But if it’s difficult to say or spell, you’ll probably end up frustrated down the road.

3. Try Not To Use A Lot Of Numbers Or Symbols In Your Name

While it’s perfectly fine to use numbers or symbols in your Charmander’s name, try not to use too many. It can get confusing and make things difficult when you’re trying to trade with other trainers.

4. Keep The Name Short And Sweet – No More Than Two Or Three Syllables

It’s much easier to remember and say a short, two, or three syllable name than something that’s longer.

5. Try To Be Original

There are a lot of Charmanders out there, so try to be as original as possible with your name choice!

6. Don’t Make It Too Long Or Complicated

The name you choose should be something that you’re comfortable saying and spelling. It shouldn’t be too long or complicated.

7. Pick A Name You Won’t Get Tired Of Hearing

If you like to call out your Pokemon names out in the heat of battle, make sure you won’t get tired of hearing the name you choose. You don’t want to end up regretting your decision later on!

8. Don’t Be Afraid To Ask For Help!

If you’re struggling to come up with a good name for your Charmander, don’t be afraid to ask friends or family for help!

They might have some great ideas that you never would have thought of yourself.
