Pokemon Home: How to Change Your Username

Wednesday, February 12th, 2020 9:14 am

Want to go by a different name in Pokemon Home? Here's how.

Pokemon Home recently launched on Switch, iOS, and Android devices. The cloud-based Pokemon storage service lets you transfer Pokemon between games, trade Pokemon with friends, receive Mystery Gifts, and much more.

When you first download the app on mobile devices, you’ll be asked to give yourself a username (This applies even if you’ve already linked your Nintendo account to the service). If you ever decide you want to change your username later on, our guide will show you how to do just that.

These screenshots were captured in the iOS version of Pokemon Home, so if you’re using the service on Android, the menus may look a bit different.

First, go to the “Your Room” screen and tap your current username.
