The good news is that Yes, you can absolutely give nicknames to the traded pokemon if they don’t already have one. The process is also simple and straightforward. If you don’t know how to give nicknames, that’s okay as we’ll be guiding you on how to do it. Without further ado, let’s dive into the process.

If you don’t want traded pokemon that are already named, we recommend you to use “Link Trade”. This way you can ensure that the trading goes smoothly with your friends and you can pick the pokemon that does not have a nickname. So, now you know which traded pokemon can be named and how to do it.
