Having problems coming up with nicknames for your Pokémon? Maybe you should try the Autocorrect!
Yes, autocorrect is currently the coolest naming system used by trainers to rename their Pokemon. This hilarious naming trend first started when one Twitter user @Adnelle was brainstorming a name for her Meowth.
She texted her friends to ask what she should name the Pokémon. And, her phone autocorrected it, hence, it came out like this: “Hey guys, what should I name my Keith.”
She told BuzzFeed, “I was like, ‘Well damn. I guess it’s decided’”.
Adnelle later shared photos of the blooper. She tweeted: “I name my Pokémon whatever autocorrect turns their names into. It’s the best decision I’ve ever made.”
Since then, she’s named her other Pokemon into Clipart, Page Ottoman, Gilbert, Be moth, Highly Roids, among others.
As her tweets received more attention, other Pokemon Go players decided to join in the fun. People started sharing pictures of autocorrected Pokémon names on Twitter. And, as you can imagine, the idea went viral in less than a week.
So, if you’re still wondering what you should name your Pikachu, just let your phone decide for you!
On a side note, I decided to try it out myself. And I agree with the crowd, autocorrect is indeed the best Pokemon naming system ever!
