Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team DX: How to Change Your Names and Team Name

We show you how you can rename yourself and your team without deleting your save.

If you're venturing out into the world of Pokemon Mystery Dungeon Rescue Team DX, you'll want to have a name that best presents you and what your team stands for. We'll show you here how to change your name and your team name at any point in the game.

How to Change Your Name and Team Name

If you want to change your name, your partner's name, or the name of your rescue team, follow these steps:

You can change all the important names by going into the main menu and scrolling along. | Joel Franey/USgamer, Spike Chunsoft/Nintendo
  • Go into the main menu, either by loading the game or save and quitting the campaign from the pause menu.
  • Scroll to the left until you reach the "Change Names" icon. Select this.
  • You'll be provided with the opportunity to change the name of either yourself, your partner or your team name, much in the way you did at the beginning of the game. This will then apply when you go back into the story campaign.

How Often Can You Change Your Name?

There's no limit to how often you can change your name, giving you the chance to relabel and redefine yourself as the game progresses. The only limitation is Nintendo's standard profanity filter - don't call yourself anything that'd get you thrown out of a church or a kindergarten, and you should be fine.

In the meantime, why not see what else you can learn about Mystery Dungeon? We've got guides on everything you'd ever need, from the new Auto-Mode feature to the best way to combat hunger and starvation.
