Pokémon Legends Arceus changes a lot of things when it comes to catching and ending fights. So when a creature is caught, the game no longer offers to rename it. Good news for those who usually spam the B button to get through this step as quickly as possible. But let the other fan faction be reassured, it is always possible to give nicknames to your Pokémon
How to rename your Pokémon in Pokémon Legends Arceus?
To rename a Pokémon, simply access the satchel menu if the creature in question is at the party, or access the Pasture Area if it is there. Select the Pokémon in question then press A to open the sub-menu which contains the Rename option.
This brings up the Switch’s virtual keyboard to let you type in a maximum of 12 characters. We recall in passing that Nintendo reserves the right to block certain words or expressions deemed too offensive or non-compliant with their criteria for use. You can confirm your choice with the Ok or the + button.
And if you wish, you can easily change your mind later to put another name to this Pokémon.
