    So I just got the v4 translation of pokemon black a while back. Anyway, this might seem silly, but can anyone teach me how to input "shinigami" as my in game name in kanji??? (Shin would do fine too, LOL) I just wanna try it out. Thanks!

    In Kanji: 死神

    In Hiragana: しにがみ

    I'm pretty sure if you google "Shinigami in Hiragana" The first post shows both Kanji and Hiragana even if your computer can't really show it, I dunno. Try it. It's worth a shot. I hope this helps, the only other thing I can think of is trying an online translator.

    EDIT: I just read my own statement. Will that work? I'm an idiot.

    Way to kick a guy when he's down. I hate em too, although the one I use is dead on. But yeah, I forgot about Wiki. Wiki is your friend.

    I'm never gonna learn Kanji, and my teacher knows this. [​IMG]

    btw, it looks like you have shi-ta(can't really read it. Could be ni)-ka-o. So...no. Got the first part. Wiki hiragana and sound it out.

    Sorry [​IMG]
    Online translators are never dead on. I believe your teacher would tell you the same thing.

    I can't really tell in that picture, Shinigami, it's a little blurry [​IMG]

    You can't use kanji for your name in Pokemon Black/White. At the bottom of the name entry screen, select the fifth box (the one to the right of 1/?) and just write "shinigami" and it will right it in hiragana.

    I think I have it. Though I will try cocomonk's directions (when I try to rename a pokemon, LOL) just to see if it matches up. Thanks again, everyone.

    that reads a LOT like Shitakaa (Shi-Ta-Ka-A). if you're gonna go hiragana, you got the shi and the ka part right, but the ka needs something that looks like double quotes (").

    EDIT: i just noticed that you got it already, haha /facepalm
