Whether it’s customizing the look of my iPhone or the user interface of any app, I’m always up for it. That’s why I felt pretty happy to have got the option to customize the look of my trainer avatar in Pokemon Go.
When Pokémon Go was rolled out amid massive buzz, I didn’t fail to get started with this awesome augmented-reality game at the earliest. Expectedly, it instantly set me on for an endless joy.
Initially, I didn’t think much about giving myself a cool name. It was only later when I saw my friends donning nice nicknames that I started to crave for a better trainer nickname. Unfortunately, there was no option to do so.
However, with the release of version 1.3.0, the game has brought quite a few changes such as Sightings screen and the option to change your trainer nickname. Therefore, if you had been pinning to have a dashing name, it’s time to get it!
