Nate’s YouTube name was generated from Pokemon, a game by Nintendo. He added his name, “Nate” with something trainers in Pokémon say when they spot you, “… Wants to battle!” And so, he called his channel “NateWantsToBattle.” It currently has over 1 Million+ subscribers, and over 180 million views! He joined YouTube on Febuary 13th, 2012.
