For the first time, trainers can give Nicknames to Pokemon received in trades in the games Pokemon Sword and Shield. Read on to learn how to do it and the restrictions on changing a Nickname.
In previous titles, the Name Rater would not allow trainers to give Nicknames to Pokemon received in a trade, even if they did not have a Nickname assigned. Now, trainers can give a Nickname to a Pokemon received in a trade, as long as that Pokemon does not already have a Nickname.
In Pokemon Sword and Shield, Name Raters are found in all Pokemon Centers, and they also double as Move Deleters and Move Rememberers. Talk to the Name Rater and ask to change a Traded Pokemon's Nickname. You will be able to do so, but after changing the Nickname once, it will be permanently set.
Keep in mind that you cannot change the Nickname of a Pokemon which was already given a Nickname by its previous trainer.

>>1 Your correct. I have tried multiple times to change the name of a Pokemon that was from Japan. The name guy just says it’s a great name and does not give you the option to change it.
Pretty positive that only traded pokemon from the same language can be nicknamed once.
