In Pokémon Sun and Moon, you can choose your Pokémon nicknames and you can also change names later by visiting the Name Rater, who will also evaluate your creative name. In our guide, we will show you where you can find the Name Rater.
In the Sun and Moon, changing and evaluating names takes place at the Name Rater. This NPC can be found in Heahea City on Akala Island. As soon as you arrive in the city, look for the building Alola Tourist Bureau.
In the building you have to go to the NPC with the light blue shirt. With this you can rename names. He is on the right side of the building and will introduce himself to you when you speak with him. He will also evaluate the nicknames of your Pokémon depending on how creative you have been.
Note! You cannot change the names of Pokémon from exchange shops with other players, because of respect for the original coach.
