    PO Trainer Name:
    Pichi
    (These are all PO names)
    PichiTheShinyPichu - One time ago I had an account on another site (won't mention), in which I forgot the password to, so I decided to create a new name similar to the old one. I was gonna use Pichu, but of course it would be taken, so I figured "What the heck I'll just change the u to i", and stuck with it.

    It took me about a year later to learn that Pichi was part of a name of an anime called Pichi Pichi Pitch (or Mermaid Melody), and was a name of some sort of animal. ._.[/HIDE]

    Then when finding about Shoddy Battle (before I found out about PO and realized that Shoddy was going down), I decided to use "Pichi", but it was taken. T~T So I decided to add on to it, using the original purpose for my name, creating PichiTheShinyPichu, and is known as that on PO to this day.

    Now for some others:
    Ferrothorn Hunter - ...I can't deal with Ferrothron very well, so I made a team that tries to keep it off. Hence the name Ferrothorn Hunter (on the server it's all caps)
    Level 99 - A team for using level 99 Pokemon. Failed miserably. :x
    Gabby & Ty - Came from the interviewers from R/S/E. Good for grinding some exp and money immediately since you can battle them anytime, only problem is that you have to Fly to their different locations.
    Copy Cat - (would've used copycat but of course I needed a space 'cause someone took it) Inspired from the fact I made an all Ditto team, and how copycats behave.
    Nyan Cat - Everyone (generalizing) knows the poptart cat that sings "Nyan" all the time, right? Heck, I love it as well, and I figured I'd make a name of it. This is currently my 2nd main name.

    The rest of the alias I have on the server are either alterations of my name, or you'll just have to find out. :3

    PO Trainer Name:
    Meh
    Ok my name. Nothing to fancy, just a few reasons:
    1)In our language. 'Meh' pronounces 'Mai' (Something like that) means Me. And forthose of you not familiar my first name was my real name, so I decided not to keep blowing my identity when I would chat, thus I thought I could take that since I am Myself
    2)Well I heard a lot of people would use the expression 'meh'. I found it pretty neat and thanks to ^(that) I decided that I could also blend in with everyone not having a fancy name
    3)Well I actually thought when someone said 'meh', how funny would it be if someone says it and a guy called Meh says 'Why so flash?' I felt I was in a need of a new name and I like messing about like that thus I chose this (though this has become the reason for me being grumpy .-.)
    4)Meh is a short name
    The flame striker: Funny story actually, I kept trying to remove the clantag from my old name (ie [F.B.D]Meh) but a message kept appearing saying: This name is either already in use or does not meet the administrator standards, so to test whether this was something wrong with my computer (as I checked the member list and nobody is using the name Meh), I entered this name... I still don't know what possessed me to write this .-. Still waiting till I can change it back

    It's very interesting how some of your usernames were created. I just randomly thought of a made-up word a few years ago: Veptix. It could have been from Vulpix, I don't remember. Veptix didn't flow out of the tongue very well, so I decided to drop the 't' and walla!

DEADPOOL but that is too long for mafia so I did PROFDEADPOOL. And is there anyway to change the name on the forum w/out making a new account?

    I named my character in Dragon Warrior Soap for fun (I think the way it contrasted the medevial talk made me like it).
    Then I named my character in Heartgold that. Then in White.
    When I join PO, knowing I couldn't make a cool name that satisfied me, I used Soap again.

    I'm Ozma from the Final Fantasy IX adversary. I decided this nick about 5 years ago after playing the game minutes prior to logging on to a chat. Before that I'd been Iron Man (My favourite song back then (By Black Sabbath) and still one of my favourites now) and the name kinda stuck as I...well...made a name for myself. On PO I have some mystery alts that I use when I pretend to be an average user or to ladder and get two nicks on a specific point.

    I also have Serge from the Chrono Cross game on PSX and Majora from The Legend of Zelda fame.

    Beyond that I just have silly things like impersonations of my fellow auth, JOHN CLAUDE GOD DAMME, ROCKY RAMBOA, etc.

    When I was going through some low-self esteem streak I used the name 'noobiefreak' since i sucked pretty much at most games. Then came along Smogon and when I created an account I decided to QUIT BEING EMO, YOU BASTARD and since Shaymin is pretty damn cute I decided to pick my current name as a cuter form of it. Also, I figured it would help sometime if I had to pretend to be a girl online.

    I moved to a new school freshmen year of high school and I made some friends and we made decisions based on a group vote. And these votes had to be uninamimous and everyone had the power of "veto" except me. So through a strange turn of events and a joke talent show act I picked up the name noveto. For my lack of veto power. I have since gained the power to veto but I kept it to remain the pain. It's a weird story I know

    The origin of Soren Valenheart comes from this:

    [​IMG]
    (Look for Luvdisc's Evolution)

    Then, the Soren thing, I just randomly name it that way. The closest assumption you may think of is coming from the "Legend of the Guardians" protagonist. :)

    It started around 6 years ago when a friend introduced me to a game called... Runescape. I wanted to try it for myself but I couldn't think of a good username, anything I thought sounded cool was unavailable so I just picked a random name and ended up with 'Haggis30' (no idea what I was thinking with that one) that account ended up getting banned for reasons I won't go into. I still wanted to play the game so I needed a new username and once again I was stuck for names, I had recently been playing Metal Gear Solid 3: Snake Eater a lot so I took my name from one of my favourite characters: Revolver Ocelot, which I unintentionally mispelled as 'Orcelot' but I wasn't able to get the name with no numbers (even though I'm pretty sure there was nobody with that name in the game) so I just added '005' on the end because it sounded cool.

    Even though I don't play Runescape anymore, the name stuck and I usually use it whenever I sign up somewhere online.

    When I first started using forums in 06 I wanted a short and easy name so I looked at my keyboard for a name that I could distinguish. I ended up picking "RTY" which i pronounced Rity but everyone else pronounced "R-T-Y" so thus I changed my name to Rity.

    I like juggling. All my real friends get to watch it on Skype. Oh wait.

    Marche Radiuju is the main character of Final Fantasy Tactics Advance, my favourite childhood game. I agree with some of the points made through his character, and used it as a laddering alt for a while before changing forum name to it. Still use Juggler on server though.

    A P P L E Guest

    All of my usernames are creative. They all are fruit related, for example, A P P L E and I allways spell it like that on any game. I have some alts that you might find on other video games but thats about it. A P P L E is my main one and this is inspired by the mighty apple, so be extra jealous and be in envy of this name! Thats basically the story of getting "A P P L E", but only in a few short sentences.

    So yeah.

    Originally, I was Blitz 3 for an SSBB tournament. I eventually dropped the 3, being known as "Blitz" IRL. The nickname is still in use, but I wanted some originality. So, as I went to create my Xbox Live account (Blitz was taken), I thought of Blitzamirite. It was suppose to be pronounced "Blitz-am-e-rit", but I knew people were going to say "Blitz-am-I-right". So I found a similar version and went with Blitzamirin. Although, every forum and IRL place I go, I will always be Blitz.

    I chose Kyrk as my username not because I'm a Star Trek fan that can't spell, but because it's my last name (which is actually spelled like that.) My old nickname on the PO server was I Use Roulette Teams, because I started making my teams on a random list generator. I then decided RouletteTeamGuy was a cooler way to show how I stupidly build my teams. Wanting to use Kyrk as my name again, but still remembrance of my old name, I just combined them to make KyrkRTG, which is what I currently use on the server and my Youtube account.

    my usernames where always shit (xswiftscimx - short for scimitar, even though i was a ranger..... , pieman, pieisgreen - i dont even know wat i was thinking then)

    anyway, i started a new game and i really wanted a cool user so i just sat there on the create an account page. After a while i noticed an intelligence test sitting on the table, which i had recently taken and hence, puregenius arose.

    i use midknight sometimes for an rpg if i am a warrior
