Looking Back at Pokémon
It has been over two decades and a half since the first release of Pokémon in 1995. Pokémon was popularized in Japan by Nintendo, Game Freak, and Creatures as an adventure RPG game in Nintendo Game Boy.
Pokémon is an acronym for Pocket Monsters. These monsters exist in the fantasy world of Pokémon where they are captured by human trainers using advanced-technology balls called a Pokéball. When captured, the monster’s data and physical body are stored digitally and can be carried or transported anywhere— thus, the term pocket, as they are kept on pockets or belts while inside the ball. In general, the monsters in this world are called Pokémon itself, and their world is separated into different Pokémon regions. Pokémon is also iconic for its catchphrase Gotta Catch ‘Em All!”.
What’s worth taking note of the game itself is its unique gameplay and features, placing players in a world where they are free to catch any Pokémon they like and train favorites through battling wild Pokémon or battling with other Pokémon trainers. The first released game was Pokémon Red and Pokémon Blue, a two-separate version for Game Boy. Each version contains the same storyline but has a different set of Pokémon in them. This encourages players to play both versions or to find another player with the other version and trade Pokémon with them via a physical link cable. Trading with another player is rare way back in the early ’90s, and this unique feature greatly adds entertainment for kids during this time.
Since its success worldwide, Pokémon has become the highest-grossing media franchise of all time. An anime television adaptation was also created and is considered to be the most successful video game adaptation into anime aired worldwide. But it doesn’t stop there, Pokémon franchise also owned the world’s top-selling toy brands, top-selling trading card games, books, manga comics, music, general merchandise, and a Pokémon theme park!
After the creation of Pokémon in 1995, the very first Pokémon Red and Blue versions were released by Game Freak and Nintendo the following year for the Game Boy platform.
Pokémon Red and Blue (1996 Japan, 1998 Worldwide Version)
The story takes place in the Kanto region and circles around the player as a young protagonist who was tasked with completing the Pokédex, an advanced Pokémon indexing that records the statistics and data of each captured unique Pokémon. It also serves as a digital encyclopedia that allows its user to see the approximate height, weight, and possible location of an encountered Pokémon. Created by the in-game NPC Professor Oak, the Pokédex serves as the first invaluable tool that players receive when starting any Pokémon game.
In this version, while completing the Pokédex, players will encounter obstacles such as your rival, and Team Rocket. The game will also lead you into collecting all the gym badges and participate in the Pokémon League—the final destination of all trainers and the supposed end-game. This version was originally released as Pokémon Red and Green and was changed to Red and Blue for the international version in 1998 together with a special Pikachu version, Pokémon Yellow. Pokémon Red and Blue versions were remastered to a newer and colored Game Boy Advance and Game Boy SP. The remastered versions are Pokémon Fire Red and Leaf Green.
One of the valuable features introduced in Pokémon is the nickname system. The game allows the players to change the base name of a Pokémon to whatever Pokémon nickname they desire. Pokémon nicknames have always been a feature of any Pokémon games released. Putting Pokémon nicknames allows the players to fully personalize their Pokémon. It also permanently changes the name of the Pokémon and retains this name when the Pokémon is traded to other players.
Feeling lazy thinking about what nicknames to use for your freshly caught Pokémon? We have an available Pokémon Nickname Generator that you can use in providing adorable nicknames for your Pokémon.
Pokémon Gold and Silver (1999)
In this game version, the Johto region was introduced plus the old Kanto region from the previous version. The story of this game circulates about the attempt of reviving the fallen Team Rocket (from the previous version) and how you, the protagonist, will foil such an attempt. Similar to the previous version, the game has the same concept in collecting Pokémon, defeating the rival, and becoming the League Champion. A follow-up version was introduced in 2000 with added storylines, the Pokémon Crystal version. Like the previous title, this version was remastered for the newer Nintendo DS version, Pokémon HeartGold and SoulSilver
Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire (2002)
This game has the same gameplay as the previous two versions, but with a more added feature, newer Pokémon, and improved graphics ported on a much newer console, the Game Boy Advance, and the Game Boy SP. The story revolves around the rivalry of Team Aqua and Team Magma as they awaken ancient Pokémon Kyogre and Groudon. An added version was introduced in 2004 with newer gameplay concepts and features, the Pokémon Emerald version together with Fire Red and Leaf Green. This game was also remastered for the much-advanced Nintendo 3DS, the Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire.
Pokémon Diamond and Pearl (2006)
Again, with the same gameplay and objectives, but with newer features and a 3D look. This game is the first Pokémon version for the modernized Game Boy, the Nintendo DS (Dual Screen). The game features added Pokémon and some activities that involve the touchpad and touch pen. This game will have a remaster for Nintendo Switch this 2021.
Pokémon Black and White (2010)
Another game from Nintendo DS, this game has much more improved graphics, adding animation to all available Pokémon from the game. Like the previous titles, they have the same storyline, gameplay, and objectives of collecting Pokémon and becoming the League Champ. A sequel for this series was introduced in 2012, Pokémon Black and White 2.
Newer Pokemon Versions in Advanced Consoles (Nintendo 3DS, Nintendo Switch)
A couple of titles were produced since the migration of Nintendo into 3D animated games. These are as follows:
· Pokémon X and Y (Nintendo 3DS, 2013)
· Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire (Nintendo 3DS, 2014) – a remake of Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire
· Pokémon Sun and Moon (Nintendo 3DS, 2016)
· Pokémon Ultra Sun and Ultra Moon (Nintendo 3DS, 2017) – a sequel for Pokémon Sun and Moon
· Let’s Go, Pikachu! And Let’s Go, Eevee! (Nintendo Switch, 2018) – a remake of Pokémon Yellow version
· Pokémon Sword and Shield (Nintendo Switch, 2019)
· Pokémon Brilliant Diamond and Shinning Pearl (Nintendo Switch, 2021) – a remake of Pokémon Diamond and Pearl
· Pokémon Legends: Arceus (Nintendo Switch, 2022)

The Pokémon GO
Pokémon GO is a mobile game launched in July 2016 worldwide for Android and IOS devices. It is intended to imitate the adventures of the main protagonist from the different Pokémon games (Game Boy to Switch), wherein they walk outside and encounter random Pokémon, then catch them. In this game, players are given a chance to explore the real-world location and search for unique Pokémon in it, including Legendary Pokémon. It’s quite an amazing game that lets players experience real-world Pokémon adventure.
The game also allows trainer-to-trainer battles, exchanging gifts, trade Pokémon, and add friends all in a single mobile device. The game also allows players to be Gym Leaders themselves or participate in Raiding other player’s Gyms. What’s more amazing is, this game allows players to port their Pokémon from Pokémon GO into newer Pokémon Nintendo Switch games.
The Eevee Name Tricks
One of the most controversial Pokémon in the game is Eevee. It is a Pokémon that can evolve into different element-based forms. In Pokémon GO, the evolution system does not follow the same evolution system as with the main-titled games (leveling up or using evolution stones). For Eevee in particular, there are various ways on how to evolve it to a specific Pokémon that the player desires. One of the easiest ways is to use the Eevee Name Trick.
There are eight Eevee evolutions in Pokémon GO and the easiest way in obtaining at least one of these eight evolutions is using the one-time use Pokémon nickname trick. For each corresponding elemental evolution of Eevee, there is a corresponding Eevee nickname that players can use to specifically evolve the Eevee into that Pokémon. To do this, simply place a nickname to your Eevee and use the evolution option using 25 candies. The Eevee nicknames are as follows:
· Vaporeon (Water Evolution): Use Rainer as a nickname
· Jolteon (Electric Evolution): Use Sparky as a nickname
· Flareon (Fire Evolution): Use Pyro as a nickname
· Espeon (Psychic Evolution): Use Sakura as a nickname
· Umbreon (Dark Evolution): Use Tamao as a nickname
· Leafeon (Grass Evolution): Use Linnea as a nickname
· Glaceon (Ice Evolution): Use Rea as a nickname
· Sylveon (Fairy Evolution): Use Kira as a nickname
Take note that once a nickname was used in an Eevee, it cannot be used again to evolve a specific Eevee evolution. Players must use the conventional or correct way of evolving an Eevee if they want to have all the eight evolutions.

Changing Your Player Name in Pokémon GO
Names are important in any game that we like to play on. Sometimes, we are not satisfied with our in-game names. To address this, most games allow the player to change their nicknames (or usernames) but for only a specific number of times.
To change your in-game name in Pokémon GO, on the home screen, tap the Pokéball icon found at the bottom of the screen. Tap the ‘gear’ icon or the ‘Settings’ found at the upper-right hand corner of the screen. Scroll down and navigate to the ‘Change Nickname’ option and select it. Tap YES, and you’ll be asked to input a new nickname for your character. Tap Ok to end the process. Take note that the game will prompt you to read a few terms and conditions when changing names, such as having limits in changing nicknames and recalling old nicknames. Simply agree with these terms by pressing ‘Yes’ if you wish to proceed in changing your nickname.
Changing Pokémon Nicknames in Main-Titled Pokémon Games
Unlike Pokémon GO, players cannot change their names in the main Pokémon games. But players are allowed to change the names of their newly captured Pokémon. In most cases, a captured Pokémon will trigger a screen dialogue asking the player if they want to add or change the name of the caught Pokémon. Some players immediately change the nickname of their Pokémon, others do not—then change their minds afterward.
To change a Pokémon nickname, simply find any Name Rater in-game and show them the Pokémon you want to change the nickname. The Name Rater will rate the name of your Pokémon and will offer you to provide a much better nickname for them. Select YES and you will be given a prompt to change the nickname of your Pokémon. You can do this anytime and with no limit for each Pokémon. However, players cannot change the nicknames of a traded Pokémon. The Name Rater will always say that the nickname of the traded Pokémon is perfect and does not need any changes. The reason for this is that the nicknames provided by the original trainer serve as a remembrance from their former trainers. Traded NPC Pokémon always have a nickname. An example is Rocky, an Onix traded from a kid in Violet City for Pokémon Gold, Silver, Crystal, HeartGold, or Soulsilver.
Effects of Pokémon Nicknames
Using nicknames on Pokémon does not have effects on the gaming experience of players. It is only a customization option that lets players customize their adventure. Some games, however, have minor effects in-game. For example, in Pokémon Ruby, Sapphire, and Emerald, changing a Pokémon nickname will sometimes feature that Pokémon in the Hoenn TV. In Pokémon Black 2 and White 2, a medal is awarded for providing unique nicknames for any Pokémon ten times. For Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire, one of the requirements to encounter a Regigigas at Island Cave is to have a nickname for a Regice and letting it hold an ice-related item.
