To reserve your name, simply head over to the Harry Potter: Wizards Unite Code Name Reservation website, and click on the button under the Ingress Prime or Pokémon GO logos and you’ll be on your way. Once you’ve clicked the button, you’ll be asked to log in using Google or Facebook with Niantic Kids and Pokémon Trainer Club as extra options if you’re reserving your Pokémon GO name.
I have the same username for both the above games. Interestingly enough, when I tried to reserve it using Ingress, I received a message stating that the name I was trying to reserve was not available due to being already claimed or not being allowed. I tried via the Pokémon GO button and it went through just fine…
Of course, there are some caveats once you’ve reserved your Code Name. First, to claim it, you must create an account in Harry Potter: Wizards Unite once the game is available by using the same login method you used to reserve your name (Google, Facebook, Niantic Kids, or Pokémon Trainer Club). Second, unclaimed Code Name reservations will expire after 6 months after the game is released, allowing someone else to use it.
