The Trainer can also have the game suggest a random name through the Random Name button.

The nickname is limited to 24 characters, spaces are removed before or after the nickname.

Graphics[edit]

Android and Windows Trainers have the possibility of lowering or increasing the quality of their game's graphics in order to increase performance. This option is not available to the iOS platform. Android Trainers can do it through the      GFX Quality Settings       button while Windows Trainers can do it through the      Graphics Settings      button. From here, Trainers can choose between low, medium and high. Once the desired value is chosen and the Apply button is selected, the game will then prompt the Trainer to restart their game in order for the new settings to take effect. The game will preview the changes live, through a sample image, as the graphics are adjusted by the Trainer.
