Temtem: How to Rename Temtem

We'll explain if and when you can give new nicknames to your captured Temtem.

Temtem gives you the chance to build and customize your own squad of personalized little monsters, from their moves to their nicknames. We'll take you through the latter here, as well as the question of how to rename your Temtem after catching them.

How to Rename Your Temtem

When you first catch a Temtem, renaming them is a process as easy as a button press. Once the stats page comes up showing you the details of what you've caught, there'll be an icon at the bottom marked "Rename" Select that, and it'll give you the option to manually type in a nickname of your choice.

To rename Temtem, do the following:

  1. Catch the Temtem
  2. Immediately after there will be a stats screen. Select Rename

Can You Rename Temtem After Catching Them?

If you're wondering if Temtem has some equivalent of the Name Rater from Pokemon, the answer - for now - is unfortunately not, though it might be added later in further updates. This means that any Temtem you catch will have that name for the foreseeable future, so make sure you're happy with it and there's no spelling errors! Otherwise you risk sending out your own personal Tetmem into battle for as long as you have it in your squad.
