In Scarlet and Violet, the changing nickname of a Pokemon is thankfully very straightforward. Rather than needing to go to a specific NPC in a particular location, the "change nickname in Scarlet and Violet" method can be simply completed in the main menu. 

All you need to do is press the X button to bring up the main menu, then select the "Check summary" option of the desired Pokemon you wish to rename. Then, as can be found at the bottom of the menu, select the X button once again to choose the "Change Nickname" option. Enter your desired nickname, press "OK", and you have successfully renamed a Pokemon in Scarlet and Violet

That is everything you need to know about the "change nickname in Pokemon Scarlet and Violet" method. Whilst you're still figuring out the game, here is how to upgrade Miraidon and Kiraidon, and how auto-battling works. Speaking of past games, be sure to also check whether the game has Dynamaxing.
