Help Choosing The Right Name

Here are some useful tips for choosing the right name for your Houndoom:

1. Make Sure The Nickname Is Something You Can Easily Say In Battle

Are you a player that loves role-playing? If so, go all out with your Houndoom’s nickname! However, if you’re more of a competitive player and would prefer something shorter and sweeter to shout out in the heat of battle, try to keep it under six letters.

For example: “Doom” or “Charcoal.”

Just make sure the name is something you can easily say and won’t get confused with another move or ability.

2. Avoid Nicknames That Are Too Long Or Complex

We all want our Houndooms to have the most badass nicknames possible, but try and avoid anything that’s too long or complex. You’ll never be able to remember it in the heat of battle, and you’ll end up looking like a total noob.

For example: “Inferno-Dragon-Of-The-Endless-Night.”

Just stick to something simple, like “Ferno” or “Cinder.”

3. Choose A Nickname That Reflects Your Houndoom’s Personality Or Appearance

Do you have a particularly spunky or mischievous Houndoom? Why not call it “Firestarter” or “Blaze?”

Is your Houndoom as black as coal? Why not name it “Charcoal?”

Take into account your Houndoom’s personality and appearance when choosing its nickname. It’ll help make the bond between you and your Pokemon that much stronger.

4. Have Fun With It! The More Creative, The Better

The best names are usually the ones that are the most creative. So have fun with it!

For example: “Sooty,” “Brimstone,” or “Midnight.”

Get creative and have fun with it! The more unique, the better.

We hope these tips help you choose the perfect nickname for your Houndoom!
