How to Change Your Name in Pokémon UNITE
After months of waiting, Pokémon UNITE is finally out on Android and iOS, following its launch on the Nintendo Switch earlier this year. When logging in, you will need to create a player name before you start playing the game and if you end up regretting your choice, you always have the option to change your name in Pokémon UNITE. The naming process is not permanent and you can change it whenever you want. However, there is a catch to it, and you will need to spend 100 Aeos Gems to do so.
