I enjoy making nicknames. Completly original ones though are sometimes hard to come by. Currently on Diamond, the only Pokemon I have nicknamed so far is my Torterra, which is "Kumori". Sometimes it's nice to have that sense of individuality.

Any suggestions?

2nd February 2008, 4:14 PM
I FINALLY came up with a name for my Donphan, for those who remember my post 11 pages back.
She's called Spinshard. I was thinking about what happens when somebody drills into the ground, and drills spin, and they send clods of dirt everywhere. Shard sounded better than clod.
I did try nicknaming my LG team as I restarted it. This is what I came up with:
Charizard: Solarflare
Pidgeot: Hawkeye
Nidoqueen: Niida
Kadabra: Macros

2nd February 2008, 4:24 PM
I want to nickname my Foretres, Ackmed. (The dead terorist... He's a puppet in a comedy act.) Simply because I can always take out my friend's Palkia with explode...

Arceus Master
3rd February 2008, 3:49 PM
I really don't like nicknaming my pokemon. I like keeping their names what they are. I once nicknamed a Drifbloon Drifter because I was bored. I had also once gotten a shiny Palkia nicknamed Darth Hall. I traded it away because of the nickname.

I love nicknaming my Pokemon. Kinda gives me a closer bond to them.

I named my Lopunny... Usada. After the bunny girl with the same name on DiGi Charat. <.<

The weirdest nickname any of my Pokemon has ever had? Well, I had to share my LG game with my sister, and I told her to nickname our Charmander Scorcho.

She called it Sorcho.
By the time I could get to Lavendar town, the name had already stuck.

The same thing happened with my Blaziken. It's still called Chicky to this day.XD

What's good nickname for Garchomp? Currently, it's "Chompy" but that is really dumb so I need a good suggestion and fast!

Thanks!

handsockpuppet
7th February 2008, 2:07 AM
I would name your garchomp Groucho or Grouchochomp or some kind of pun with Groucho Marx in it.

BTW, since I hatched billions of eggs searching for a slakoth with adament nature, to tell each one apart. I gave them all nicknames. it's getting tough to think of good nicknames for slakoths.

Lol at Ludicolo's name. My yanmega is called Doomy. Maybe you could call it Anisop or something? Since Anisoptera is the infraorder that real dragonflies are in. I think I'll call my Crobat, MonasPizza.

I've been nameing my pokemon since... I got a pokemon game! I like because it makes them individual. I don't nickname every pokemon a catch, just my teams.

Luxary - Ampz
Staraptor - Dynamo
Flygon - Sand
Rhyperior - Ritcher

I stopped giving nicknames in D/P, but I'm thinking about starting again.

I tend to name them after gods and mythical creatures, or give them whimsical and/or clever and/or appropriate names. For example, I'd like to call a Magnezone 'Ovni'. Answers on a postcard.

Queen_Lugia
7th February 2008, 10:57 PM
In DV, I've named some of my Pokes after creatures from world mythology:
Zubat: Camazotl (Aztec bat god)
Pachirisu: Ratatosk (Insult carrier to Nidhoggr from Norse myths)
Floatzel: Dobharchu (Otter monster in Gaelic lore)
Buneary: Silmukha (Hindu rabbit god)
Ponyta: Epona (from Zelda series and a horse goddess from British myth)
Croagunk: Heqet (Ancient Egyptian frog-goddess of childbirth)
Skuntank: Aniwye (Native American skunk monster)
Murkrow: Morrigan* (Gaelic raven-goddess of war) *I've also used the alternate spelling of Morrighan.
Skorupi: Serket (Ancient Egyptian scorpion-goddess)
Bidoof: Afanc (Gaelic beaver monster)

Some non-mythological names that are cool:
Luxray: Luxor
Empoleon: Emperor (it's a guy, so...)
Staraptor: Raptor (unoriginal, but she reminds me of the birds of prey, who are called raptors "snatchers".)

Edit: I just remembered some of my old Silver nicknames. I think I was slightly obsessed with the Legend of Zelda Oracles games and named some of my Pokes after major characters in both games. Here are some that I remember:
Shiny Gyarados: Onox (Onox is the General of Darkness in Seasons and tries to gain power over nature with the seasons of Holodrum spiralling into chaos, and chaos reminded me of Gyarados.)
Lugia: Nayru (Nayru is the title character of Ages, the Oracle of Ages. Since Lugia had a bluish belly, and since blue is associated with Nayru, I decided on that.)
Shiny Male Goldeen: Link (Link is the main character of the Legend of Zelda series and since my Goldeen was male, the name stuck.)
I think that I may have had Pokemon nicknamed after Impa, Din, and maybe Malon/Talon and Vasu at one point, too. The preceding names are those of Princess Zelda's nurse, the Oracle of Seasons, a father/daughter pair who raise Cuccos (Zelda's version of the chicken), and the jeweler in Holodrum/Labrynna, respectively.

A slightly silly name that resulted from the name of one of my dad's relatives is Gary Dose for a Gyarados. (He has a cousin named exactly that. :D)

Edit: If I get a Baltoy, I'm going to NN it Adobe. (Mario is Missing reference, anyone? (The line is "You won't find adobe here in Nairobi," BTW XD))

Edit 2: I'm also going to call my potential Deoxys AndromedaStrn, or Andromeda if that doesn't work. (Andromeda Strain is a medical/sci-fi disaster movie. One of my fave movies, too. :D) For Lugia, Imma gonna call it Luigi ('cause Lugia kinda sounds like Luigi.) A possible Espeon nickname would be Calofisteri or Calofistri if the first doesn't fit. (Calofisteri is a boss in FF5.) My Gyarados might be called Syldra (a NPC/Summon in FF5). A good Palkia NN would be Atomos (another FF5 boss, and a rather annoying one at that. :@). A NN that I thought of for Aerodactyl would be Archeoaevis or Archoaevis. (Archeoaevis is another rather annoying FF5 boss. :()

FINAL Edit: Some of my XD nicks are:
Shroomish (M): Toad ('cause it looks like him)
Houndoom (don't remember gender) Devilupus (Devil because of its horns and chest skull and Lupus because it reminds me of a wolf. Plus, it sounds cool. :D)

Lol at Ludicolo's name. My yanmega is called Doomy. Maybe you could call it Anisop or something? Since Anisoptera is the infraorder that real dragonflies are in. I think I'll call my Crobat, MonasPizza.

hehe, i no Ludicolo name cracks me up. its very common but he IS a Mexican right lol! also, anisop is.. i dunno... how do you pronounce it:

An-i-sop?


I've been nameing my pokemon since... I got a pokemon game! I like because it makes them individual. I don't nickname every pokemon a catch, just my teams.
My In-game Pearl team:

Torterra - Rootz
Floatzel - Current
Luxary - Ampz
Staraptor - Dynamo
Flygon - Sand
Rhyperior - Ritcher

Love the Torterra name. Never thought of that and never seen it.



Empoleon: Emperor (it's a guy, so...)

what my Empoleon is called. Its a cool nickname and i reckon it suits Empoleons name. It is very common though.

Any other suggestions on my Yanmega nickname?

Also, an Azelf nickname is hard too...

I used to only nickname my 6 Party Pokemon, but now I've gotten into a habit of nicknaming pretty much every Pokemon I catch. Unless of course, I'm only using it for trading between my games. But I even nickname my HM Slaves. O__o

Flara - Charizard (F) Mix between Flare and Lava *I tend to mix two words that suit the Pokemon*
Darkstorm - Rayquaza *shiny* Well...He's black. And he's a sky Pokemon. ^^;
Sienna - Linoone (F) *shiny* Her colour. I don't like giving them nicknames for their colours, unless of course the colour name is more...unique. I wouldn't name a Pokemon Red, or Blue, unless it's spelt a different way, like Bleau.
Hurricane - Rapidash (M) Since Rapidash are, fast-like Pokemon.

And since I was in Year 9 *I'm in Year 11 now*, all of my Steel-type Pokemon have the letters A, L, K, and I in their names. Since in Science class, I saw on the wall, Alkalai, and I didn't really know what it meant. But Steel's a mineral sort of thing, so I thought it'd match.
Alkine - Mawile (F)
Alkaid - Aggron (M) *Don't have him anymore XD*
Alikora - Skarmory (F)
Alikan - Registeel

That sort of thing. I still name them like that, too. ^^;

But yeah. Nicknames are great. It makes them way more unique. And it's like they're truly yours if you give them a nickname. Anyone can have a Charizard named Charizard, but only so many people can think of the name Lavara, or Flara for a Charizard, right?

*sighs* I is rambling again. ^^; I love coming up with nicknames, though. If you need help with nicknames, PM me. XDXDXD

When I was cooking my breakfast which was bacon, the way it turned pinkish made me think of my Blissey. Unfortunately, I already have a nickname (which I like) for my Blissey so I couldn't really use this nickname I thought of...

I'm an avid reader, and as such, many of my names are influenced by books.

For instance, my Eevee-lution team is as follows(inspired by Warriors):

Jolteon - Needlefur
Vaporeon - Torrentpaw
Flareon - Fireheart
Leafeon - Leafpool
Umbreon - Ravenpaw
Espeon - Swiftclaw
Glaceon (not currently part of my team, but named nonetheless) - Frostpelt

Some of these are actually names straight from the Warriors book themselves; can you tell me which ones they are?

I'm obsessed. Seriously. Fireheart(Now Firestar :3) and Ravenpaw were from the first series and Leafpool was from the second series and she received her warrior name in Starlight. Currently up to the third series, second book (which is the latest one and already finished reading it). :D

I nicknamed some of my Eevee-evolutions based on the Warriors series as well.
Leafeon - Gorsetail

Ah, my brothers think I'm weird for nicknaming all of mine (yes, all. Not some, all.)

Random Selection:
Sirenia the Dewgong (Biological Order of Manetees/Dugongs)
Cacauphony the Chatot
All my Eeveelutions are Zodiac names (Libra, Aries, Gemini, Pieces, Virgo, Sagittarius, Aquarius, Leo)
Titan the Torterra
Princess the Granbull
Glaive the Nidoking and Naginata the Nidoqueen (Similar Weapons)
Petunia the Grumpig
Slepnir the Giratina (8 Legged Horse of Norse Mythology)

Lots of biological names of related animals or ideas (Drone the Combee) and mythological names (Demeter the Vileplume/Persephone the Bellossom), some that are stupid and simple (Suckers the Octillery), others that are just funny to me (A.C. the Magnimite & D.C. the Voltorb), and some that have some kind of meaning behind it (Thalassa the Corsola, Thalassa means "sea") or just big words (Epiphany the Beautifly), and names I make up for some (Tiarna the Absol, Caylis the Gardevoir)

I'm just weird about it. Teehee. I like coming up with names for them all.

(And a good name for a Sandslash might be Pangolin [the RL animal it's based on], or Manis, the genus name of Pangolins)

Well, I've been naming my lot.

Luna: Gardevoir, since it's hair kinda resembles a moon, thouhg not as much as bananahead Cress.

SpeedHax: Crobat, and I won't explain why having the same base speed as Mewtwo isn't hax.

RAWR!1: Hippowdon, because it's got a bloody big gob! Also, would Ice Fang be better than Thunder Fang?

Tuxedo: Prinplup, because of that Futurama episode where Bender gets stuck on Pluto because of that tanker spill.

Airhead: Drifblim, because it's got a head full of air. *shot*

Hippo Chow: Pachirisu, and you know why.

Now what to call my soon-to-be Gallade...

Well it depends on what other interests I have at the time. Like one of my teams consisted of the names from the Fatal Fury series. It also depends on what I think sounds ok. Except if I can ever manage to get a Celebi, its nickname will be Celery. Dont get me wrong, I love Celebi but it IS part grass, plus its close to its name and it just sounds funny XD;152;

I don't nickname my Pokemon really.I don't find it stupid I just don't.I'd probably come up with crappy names like Leafy or something.I'm not the most creative person in the world.|=(

Nicknaming Pokémon usually means a great honor for them. :p

I mean, I only nickname those that are more important - those on my team, my HM slaves, and legendaries. Although I sometimes nickname for other reasons too.

On my team, I usually spend a lot of time thinking of nicknames... Behold the genius of some of my nicknames... And the stupidness of others. :p
Mish - Breloom (from Shroomish, when it was one)
Linux - Porygon-Z (has to do with computers, and it looks sort of like... some sort of bird)
Khoiros - Grumpig (Greek [I think] for pig)
Ignatius - Arcanine (Latin word, I think... has to do with igniting...)
Tundra - Froslass (eh... from cold weather)
Kiboko - Hippowdon (one of my favorites, nickname-ly speaking; means hippo in Swahili)
Loki - Absol (Another one of my favorite nicknames, and it has a double meaning: Norse evil god thing, and a pun on "lucky", cause it abuses that Super Luck ability of his)
Blizzeta - Glaceon (From that boss in Zelda: Twilight Princess)
Mukku - Staraptor (Any guess?)
Bib - Bibarel HM Slave
Tro - Tropius HM Slave

...And then I just nickname legendaries with their same name, but properly capitalized ("Palkia" instead of "PALKIA"), Unown for their associated word in the Unown Dex, and my hordes of Synchronize Abra and Ditto for their nature. Random Pokémon I catch/obtain don't get any nicknames...

I name all my pokemon. Some of them have names and they haven't even been created yet! Lol. I love naming my pokemon, it really does give them a personallity. My Zangoose's name is 'Juggernaut' and boy, in those double battles she does more than live up to her name. She's a beast if you don't take her out first thing but even then! She can take a hit or two, it's kinda scary...But she's my little Juggernaut. Then there are some pokemon that don't have names, like my Phys. Charizard. Sometimes I keep a pokemon without a name and MAKE them earn one. I normally name those after something really cool that they did or after an awsome character in a book or game. ^^

27th February 2008, 4:26 AM
I always name my Pokemon. I remember naming my Chimchar in pearl Yanyan after that fighting monkey in monkey ball bannana blitz. I also put one of those picture things on the end of a starter's name this generation. Heart for Piplup/Star for Chimchar/ Clover for Turtwig

I need nick names for a Milotic, Blaziken, and Espeon.
Any ideas?
I find that looking up words in different languages that relate to certain Pokemon make good nicknames. For example, I named my Lickilicky 'Lengua' because lengua means tongue in Spanish. lol So you could consider...

Sol the Espeon (Sol means sun in Spanish. :/)
Fuego the Blaziken (Fuego means fire in Spanish...)
Agua the Milotic (Agua means... well, water. lol)

Or you could pick certain qualities the Pokemon have. Like how Espeon has kinda big ears, how Milotic has a long body, and how Blaziken has big claws? Any characteristic like that works.

Giratina: Bishaan! (links to Giratina's Cry)
Heatran: Mega Masha

And nearly every other Pokémon ever espeshally (SP?) in D/P.

(Exeptions (SP?) are anyone who has a good name to start with, eg. Shedinja ;292; (SP?))

I usually wait till I get to the name changer to give them names, it gives me time to come up with some really good ones. I only have my Budew nicknamed, her name is Rose, for when she evolves. Pretty boring name, but I will probaly come up with a better one.

I only nickname my favorites, such as:

Torterra - Galren (one of my RP dragonslayers)
Luxray - Boltix
Staraptor - Klidia
Lucario - Grimoire (a dark name for one who uses Dark Pulse)

and for legends I just put the species name in lower case so it looks like a normal name rather than all caps.

In Emerald I used to have these nicknames but I transfered them to Pearl and restarted:

Sceptile - Soramus (another RP knight)
Swellow - Livia

and in my new file my Machoke is nicknamed Gulven.
