100 Free Pokemon Name Ideas for Pokemon Legends: Arceus

Pokémon Legends: Arceus tasks a space-time traveling protagonist with filling the first-ever Pokédex. That means making new friends, benching old ones, and playing around with quite a few captures in the process. We don’t need to keep things formal with our Pokepals, though.

Some players hate nicknaming Pokemon, enough that it’s become a bit of a meme. However, some of us like fun or boldly claim it adds a layer of charm to an otherwise basic roster. It can be daunting to think up the perfect name for one Pokémon, let alone 100. Still, I had a few ideas to start. Keep in mind that these don’t follow any particular order or rules. It’s just chaos and potential Pokémon names.
