Do you nickname your pokemon? What do you name them, you can also rate other peoples pokemon nicnames here.
*If this needs to be moved please move it to the proper place*

I lvoe to give my poke's nicknames. I'm planning on nicknaming my piplup Sonic, Turtwig Compy, and Chimchar name Link

25th March 2007, 9:24 PM
I don't because I get sick of them and change them anyway.

25th March 2007, 9:26 PM
As soon as i get a lickilicky, i will nickname it.
(I usually dont like nicknames)

25th March 2007, 9:26 PM
Link is such a cute name, but I would give that name to turtwig.

I would probably call my piplup Blizzard or Snowball, but it would have to be a girl for me to call it that.
I would call ChimChar JimJam, because of the guy from starwars I can't remember his real name, but I call him JimJam. (Actually I think that JimJam was from an episode of the simpsons, but yeah.......) Then I would call Turtwig- Twiggy, or Link like I said before.

The only real nicknames I use are when they are fully evolved I nickname them so everytime they battle it don't seem like everything is all caps.

I nickname a lot of my pokemon. ^_^ It makes them different from everyone else's pokemon. :D I've been nicknaimg since blue version and I'll continue in pearl. Though I seem to "re-use" names a lot and sometimes I'm not too creative. @_@
Why name a Piplup "Sonic?" Give that to Shaymin. XD

I usually nickname the Pokemon on my team and the ones I often use in battles. Kaliber for Salamence, Flourine for Lanturn, Tekkanin for Ninjask, Heathcliff for Tyranitar. All my Dugtrio have chocolate-inspired names ^^

Why? They look like choclate to you?

Dimentio
26th March 2007, 9:25 PM
Well don't YOU name your Dugrtio after chocolates?

I always name my Pokemon their Jap. names. This gen. is no different, and it'll be easy 'cause I'm so used to their Jap. names already.

Link is such a cute name, but I would give that name to turtwig.

You mean Jar Jar Binks? :P

And no, I never give my Pokemon nicknames.

26th March 2007, 9:31 PM
Lets see. Nows a good time to figure this out for my Diamond team.

Luxray: Rentorer. I just like the sound of it.
Mammoswine: Moomodon
Lucario: Britzly
Honchkrow: Donkrow

I always nickname mine after figures from ancient mythology...normally gods of the element that they belong to or something similarly related. Eg: Torkoal = Hephaestus or Relicanth = Poseidon.

I nick name none of my Pokemon. I only nicknamed one Pokemon in my whole life and it was a Magikarp I named Stupid. Other than that, I have never nicknamed pokemon. I don't like to give my pokemon names because I usually love their normal names too much to change it too anything.

I name my magikarp "magicrap" becasue its crappy, until it evolves, but I never usually have a gyrados...

27th March 2007, 7:49 PM
I often nickname pokemon I don't raise just for fun, i.e HM fruit for Tropius, Deoxys for Wurmple XD, so yea just for fun, tho i named the Ludicolo I raised with "Rain Dance/Leech Seed/Toxic/Dive@Leftovers/Rain Dish" Healord.

koxcstar23
28th March 2007, 5:15 PM
I like to nickname sometimes, like in s/r/e I called my ludicolo Lillypad and my Torchic (now a blaziken) Torch.

Tiamat_Zero
28th March 2007, 5:20 PM
I am generally adverse to any thoughts of nicknaming my pokemon
But, perhaps when D/P arrives, and I upload some of my advance gen pkm, I will nickname them

...
perhaps

28th March 2007, 6:23 PM
i like nicknaming pokemon with names
that i think would make good actual
pokemon names.

28th March 2007, 11:48 PM
I dont think I have ever given my pokemon like human names...like Mark or something on People name ideas....

koxcstar23
29th March 2007, 5:16 PM
I like it when people give their pokemon clever names :) i could never come up with those ideas.

I always call my oddish Dee Dee I dont know why.

Pamizard
29th March 2007, 5:38 PM
I got some ideas fo some now. More then one are going to have the same nickname since i don't have any other names to use

Luxray: Undertaker
Azelf: Sonic
mespirit: Compy (made up Pokemon)
Uxie: Link
Dialga: Dragonsaur(made up POkemon)
Palkia: Pammie (made up Pokemon)
Leafeon: Link
Galceon: Compy
Rampardos: Sonic
Bastiodon: Compy
Gastrodon: Although i hate to nickname some Pokemon after the Wrestler I hate the most.. Gastrodon is PERFECT for Randy Orton

koxcstar23
29th March 2007, 5:42 PM
Is azelf the little hedgehog thing....? is that why everyone is calling it Sonic??

30th March 2007, 10:58 AM
I've only nickname the main Pokemon I use on my teams, or novelty ones. But for now I'm just going to name my team ones.

Emerald and Frontier Parties:
Blaziken - Alpha
Breloom - Beta
Walrein - Kappa
Salamence - Delta
Gardevoir - Gamma
Armaldo - Epsilon

Golem - Omega
Starmie - Iota
Banette - Sigma

Pearl Party:
Infernape - Wildfire
Abomasnow - Frosty
Gastrodon - Atari (no idea why, just a random name which also happens to be a console. I thought it sounded cool.)
Staraptor - Kamikaze
Bastiodon - Berley
Mismagius - Spectra

WiFi Party:
Snorlax - Rolly
Houndoom - Smokey
Porygon-Z - Beamer
Gengar - Spectre
+ Delta and Berley

EDIT: No, Shaymin is the hedgehog. Azelf is that blue pixie one, which apparently looks like Sonic.
@Pamizard: why are you naming so many Pokemon Compy, Link, and Sonic? And what's wrong with Gastrodon?

30th March 2007, 2:21 PM

31st March 2007, 3:27 AM
i dont exactly name my pokemon but depending on what i feel like i may do so.

for diamond i feel like naming my piplup icy or splash or leaving it as it is

gigi44
31st March 2007, 4:04 AM
I'd been using nicknames cause for example, i do not want my Charmander's name being Charmander it's like naming a human being human. The greatest nickname that I had ever came up with was Jiklozine, for my Rayquaza. Couldn't think of a name, so I put some letters together.

mewmew202
31st March 2007, 5:20 AM
I don't give my Pokemon nicknames. I would just end up with something silly more likely then not and be stuck with it until I got to the name raters and then keep changing it when it evolved.

legendary pkm master
31st March 2007, 5:29 AM
i do hate it when they evolve and then the name dont match anymore like i named my bulbasaur bulby and when it became ivysaur it was weird callin him bulby instead of what i want ivysaur to be named (ivy)

dragonbreath
31st March 2007, 8:46 AM
I have always nicknamed my mon. It just helps make them more mine.

Torterra: Atlas (after the titan that carrys the world on his shoulders)
Lucario: Vorg (After a chacter in a boxing manga nicknamed the white wolf)
Luxray: Leosaber (Mainly because I see him using thunder fang and growing a sabertooths fangs.)

I have never nicknamed a pokemon, i dont know why. I just like the orginal names better, but I plan to. IF i catch a dog looking pokemon and its a male, its name would be spike. B/c of my dog that I have right now, and if i catch a female one, It would be Faith cause she passed away so ya.
