Serpetine. Anyone have a good nick for a Mamoswine?

or iceman

25th March 2008, 6:44 PM
I usually don't nickname my pokemon, though on the 2nd gen games I would give my Hooh's tha name Hoho

25th March 2008, 7:39 PM
I've good as always given my pokémon nicknames since Silver.
On Pearl, I've nicknamed every single pokémon I've caught (except for the legandarys, since there are only one of each) and they all have unique, nice and approperiate(sp.?) names. My team is:
Jolteon - Jolton
Glaceon - Krystal
Altaria - Cirrus
Stantler - Bambi
Milotic- Xin Jing
Absol - Yami

25th March 2008, 7:46 PM
Ha, I sometimes spend more time with nicknames than raiseing the poke after :P
I named my miltoic 'Dechtire', it's a Welsh name of a girl from the story who was turned into a beautiful bird or something like that :)
Then there's my ninetales nicknamed Helena after Helen of Troy, Archangel the togekiss... I definitely overthink when it comes to nicknames :D

25th March 2008, 8:03 PM
this is what i'm going to name my pokemon if i can find the name changer.
Cacture- Wickerman
Ryperior- *Redcoat (3 reasons)
Shiftry- *Jagaur
Steelix- Big Angery Pen__
*i'm a previous Civ4 junkie that will help

Cant remember the names in Pearl, but so far in Diamond I have a team that I am raising with names.

Prinplup(F) - Freya (Norse Godess, Has to do with the North, Penguins are in the far North, makes enough sense to me)
Luxio(F) - Cake (If you haven't played Portal, you wont get it.)
Staravia(M) - Senjor (Inside joke with friends, how my Spanish teacher says Seńor)
Meditite(F) - Erizabesu (Engrish for Elizabeth, reference from Gintama)

Except most penguins are South Pole natives ;).

Oni Raichu
28th March 2008, 2:19 AM
Ah, nicknames. Some of us obsess over them to no end, some of us don't care about them at all, and some just nickname them wacky names for the fun of it.

I have a Lugia that's nicknamed Shiver. Now, in my opinion, that's one of the best nicknames ever created, but I'm not going to leave my head on that. I have a Caterpie I called Astinus, a Growlithe I call Kat and a Raichu that I nicknamed Oni Raichu. There's more, I'll dig up my Diamond version and find 'em.

Dialga = April (Month the game came out. The month I was born in. Diamonds are the gem-thingies of April.)

Palkia = Paramore (Favorite band.)

Shiny Psyduck = Psydox (Pretty much random.)

Ditto (the first Pokeradar-only Pokemon I managed to catch) = Dicko (Um...)

That one guy
28th March 2008, 4:08 AM
I usually don't nickname my Pokémon, but I have recieved nicknamed ones in trades.

Tibet the Mismagius
Wally the Wynaut
River the Zigzagoon
And 6 Mudkips named "So" "I" "herd" "u" "liek" and "mudkip?" from my friend because I was bored.. >_<

I am pretty sure all penguins live in the southern hemisphere. So, if that is correct penguins have nothing to do with the North.

Seeking advise on nicknames for Heatran and Azelf.

31st March 2008, 1:50 AM
i named my raichu rai, and my milotic miles. but my favorite is my umbreon, shade :D

31st March 2008, 8:39 AM
I've almost never nicknamed my pokemon, but I'm planning on naming my first shiny Prime or Primera (depending on it's gender) maybe i'll start naming when there's a new poke game :P

2nd April 2008, 4:00 AM
I only nickname my favorite Pokemon..

Eevee/Espeon - Luminous
Umbreon - Eclipse
SHINY Eevee - Coraline

2nd April 2008, 5:05 AM
I've always nicknamed my Pokémon. In my Yellow and Crystal games I'd just make it so they weren't all capitals, 'cause that annoyed me xD But now I actually give them names, always related to the kind of Poké they are. My current team is:
;407; Buddy
;405; Lux
;398; Star
;195; Woopie
;392; Chimp
;429; Miss

I also have some other cute names I like.
;425; Floon
;076; Dude
;077; Ponytime! [my bf's band xD]
;440; Cutie

2nd April 2008, 5:54 AM
I only change my Pokemons' names so they won't be in all capitals.

3rd April 2008, 4:03 PM
I have fun nicknaming my Pokémon -- I have a pidgey that I nicknamed Yegdip (Pidgey spelled backwards) :p. Really random, I know... but meh :D. And I have many more Pokémon that I nicknamed as well.

I'll have to edit somemore of them in sometime.

3rd April 2008, 4:15 PM

4th April 2008, 2:37 AM
I always have like certain themes for mine. My emerald team is named after Naruto characters, and my old pearl team is named after the planets. So far in the new pearl I don't really have a theme.

5th April 2008, 10:30 AM
Torterra = Atlas
Empoleon = Poseidon (my Kyogre's name too...)
Salamence = Fafnir (I was supposed to name it something else, but I forgot...)
Mismagius = Nyx (<3)
Gallade = Perseus, but then I changed it to Spada... (Man, I am really obssessed >_<)

And when I finally train my Chimchar and evolve it all the way into an Infernape, I think I'm going to call it... Well, I can't spell it anymore :/ It's probably too long anyway. So maybe Vulcan.

5th April 2008, 9:34 PM
Ditto- Stud/ s l u t depending on mood
Garchomp- FunnyBuns
Glameow- EvilSkitty
Snorlax- FatAlbert
Gengar- Mindfreak

5th April 2008, 10:07 PM
I always name my flying pokemon banishedbi (Banishedbird if it fit) until it reaches lv. 100. It's been a tradition since red version. My skarmory has now gained the right to be called "bird" instead. I always name my starter P-001 for some reason. I name my shinys something that relates to shiny pokemon(lucky and Sherald. Sherald shares sh with shiny.).

6th April 2008, 8:36 PM
I name all of my Pokemon after Homestar characters.

7th April 2008, 7:40 AM

Wrong, there are numerous breeds of tropical penguins. Hahaha.

Torterra = Atlas
Empoleon = Poseidon (my Kyogre's name too...)
Gallade = Perseus, but then I changed it to Spada... (Man, I am really obssessed >_<)

7th April 2008, 1:50 PM
I tend to give my characters witty names.

Mudkip: Pie.

Porygon: Kryten. (Ever watched Red Dwarf?)

Infernape: Flare or Firestorm (That's what I name all my Fire starters)

The others are stupid stuff like Pikachu I called "uggly butt" (Excuse spelling, this was based on the Pikachu i had in Pokemon Yellow)

Lucario Hero
7th April 2008, 2:32 PM
Recently, I have only nicknamed one Pokemon; I nicknamed my Zigzagoon Ziggy. Very original.;)

7th April 2008, 2:44 PM
lol; i didn't gave a nickname to pokemon in any game except for 3 pokemon in emerald
marshtomp: swampy
loudred: ASD
a shell witch i evolved into gorebys i don't remember how it's called: BIGSHELL
marshtomp and loudred were part of my E4 party :D

in the mistery dungeon, i named me(squrtle) napoleon and my cikorita partner hitler XD

8th April 2008, 12:19 AM
(commander BlitzKreig) Stalin isn;t even a real Russian name...it don';t mean nothing (I'm Russian) he was just a communist dictator (but it makes sense though lol).

i like giving human names to my Pokemon...like....i don;t know. i usually give them names from japanese anime.
*go Itachi!*

8th April 2008, 1:12 AM
I named my machoke Chuck, as in Chuck Norris.

His name is way over used, but hey.

8th April 2008, 1:37 AM
I called my Lucario "Shadow" once I evolved my Riolu.

8th April 2008, 2:30 PM
I usually gives nicknames to my main pokes I use though most ends up with random/weird/silly names, sometimes more realistic names. That or just what I see them as, like my Kangaskhan, they're big mommies with baby in the pouch...so I named her Big Momma. :/
The thing is I never see the pokémons as creatures someone trained but a rpg-styled group of six pokémons that happens to wander the world for no reason. It's weird like that.

8th April 2008, 7:12 PM
I give my guys nicknames sometimes. I have a Pidgeot named Skydra and I named my ditto after my real name, because then it says I transform into stuff and attack. Its corny but fun. That's my thinking.

Cool Frood
8th April 2008, 11:47 PM
Nicknames are awsome! I love to trade random-named ones

9th April 2008, 12:07 AM
I like Nicknames. I don't nickname all of my pokemon, but if I feel like it, I will nickname one.

Vileplume-Rafflessia(Vileplume's name in Protuguese[I'm Portuguese that's why], French, etc..)



Pikachu-Kixapuch (It sounds cool, it's like the Kingdom Hearts thing because Organization XIII's names are anagrams of their human counterpart with an 'X' added somewhere)

I have a shiny Cyndaquil, and I was going to name it Basil, just because I thought it fit well, but then I remembered that Basil is green....so I was considering Mace, but i don't know anymore.

Any suggestions?

Cool Frood
9th April 2008, 3:59 AM
I like the Japanese name, Hinoarashi. This means "fire storm."

I also like Basil, it sounds cute :D

9th April 2008, 1:50 PM
I nicknamed my Crobat, Frightful. And my Umbreon, Tsuki.


10th April 2008, 12:29 AM
I usually name my Typhlosion its japanese name before I always migrate it to my Diamond.


10th April 2008, 1:30 AM
I like the Japanese name, Hinoarashi. This means "fire storm."

I was going to use its' Japanese name, but I always nickname my pokemon Japanese words or names, so I was thinking Fruit, Flowers, or Spices and Seasonings. Plus, Dried Basil Leaves are of a reddish tint right?

10th April 2008, 1:45 AM
My Staraptor is named Riley, I don't know why, it just came to me.
My Blaziken was named Chicken,
and my Swampert was named Muddy.

10th April 2008, 4:54 PM
My Blissey is called Ignorance. Lol, like they say, "ignorance is bliss".

10th April 2008, 5:47 PM
>: D Well, I just watched the first three episodes of Star Wars last weekend and while I was catching Heatran, I was joking with my friend that I should cll it Anikin. But I didn't because I really think that would've been in bad taste and I'll never use the pokemon anyway.

10th April 2008, 5:59 PM
haha, I was obsessed with 300 for a while, and named my new-caught Machop Leonidas :p

Crimson Fang
10th April 2008, 6:04 PM
I have a tradition of naming usually starters-only (Blaze, Pyre, Cinder, etc.) But i've named my fighting team.

Torterra: Razor (in sig. His offspring are Rizer and Raze.)
*********: Madeen (it's a misnomer or whatever. Madeen's a light element summon in FF9, and she's Dark type).
Azumarill: Ayame, then Tenchi (switched genders on me!)
Wigglytuff: Jigg (I was gonna keep her a Jiggly, but...)
*******: Aurion
*********: Dusk

Can't give away my whole team yet. =)

10th April 2008, 10:29 PM

My Jirachi's name is Nozomi. Nozomi's Japanese for 'Wish'.

12th April 2008, 1:07 PM
I just nickname my PKMN names that go well with their type.
Blaziken/Infernape: Blaze
Charizard: Flame/Burner
Empoleon/Poliwrath: Bubbles
Torterra: Twiggy
Raichu: Shocker
I nickname my PKMN names like those, it just suits the PKMN.

13th April 2008, 12:05 PM
I always uncapitalify names so they're (for example) Empoleon instead of EMPOLEON.

Besides that I've only nicknamed online Pokemon to make them look 'professional'. Mostly it just makes them look sad.

Dracofyre the Salamence
Metaguard the Metagross
Engarde the Gallade
Poryshock the Porygon-Z
Flubbs the Blissey =D
Sazaki the Infernape
Xyarados the...Gyarados. No prize for guessing that.

And more, but I can't remember them.

13th April 2008, 6:41 PM
I like to put an "X" somewhere in all my pokemon's nicknames. (If you know where that comes from, you get a cookie :D )

I have a Scizor named Sa'ix
My Scarm's name is Xefarina
T-Tar as Xuku
Ninjask as Xina
Togekiss as Trixie
and many others

I used to have an Alakazam named Spoons. lol

13th April 2008, 7:14 PM
I used to just give them random names to do with how they looked or their type. Some ended up with disasterously retarded names like "Flappy" or "Rockface". Now I just plan on giving my main team themed names.

13th April 2008, 9:06 PM
Gengar - Shadslaw :P

13th April 2008, 9:36 PM

Torterra - Atlas
Prinplup - Prince
Bastiodon - Knight

Torterra - Bombardo
Murkrow - Witch
Rapidash - Wesly
Clefable - Dollface
Lucario - Anubis
Wiscash - Tsunami

13th April 2008, 10:35 PM

Machana, The Female Machop
Ragnos, The Male Magikarp
and Rex, The Male Shinx
Still need to catch my sixth guy lol

16th April 2008, 2:34 AM
Spankums/Quagsire - My friend named this one. It's my favorite Pokemon, and a very unique and funny name. When I went to a tournament, it put a smile on everyone's face. (And everyone started rooting for him).

Shady/Staraptor - Just a cool nickname I thought of.

Darknut/Weavile - A very cool nickname. It's so cool, one of my friends started nicknaming all of his sneasles that...-_-

Nicknames are fun to try and think of.

I named my Forretress CaptPlanet because he's ecofriendly :).

I also named my Shuckle WackaShuck, because if you look at him, he sorta looks like a spherical game of Whack-a-Mole :p.

17th April 2008, 6:58 PM

Don't forget to keep things appropriate.;)Aww, there goes my chance to say any names. Well, I have each and every Pokemon caught in Pearl version nicknamed, usually after things that are going through my mind, like some stupid, random words or some childish dirty words. And sometimes something related to the Pokemon itself. Plus, my team is named after some punk bands.

I Nickname my Pokemon pretty and sometimes meaningful names.
Like my Roserade is Feuille, which is 'Leaf' in French
My Luxray is Miroir
Lapras is Prima
Rapidash is Rautte
and so on =3
Although as much as I like the boost in exp. points I dont like the big capital letters in my party so I breed them and raise it from scrach just for the name sake.

Empoleon - Pochama
Staraptor - Strieve
Palkia - Space
Dialga - It's a Japanese name. :<

Hippodown - HIPPODOWN

Every Pokemon I own has been nick'd (except for traded or I was too lazy to name) in some way that will make you go "wtf."


Meowth - Ijilef

Because it's the stupidest name ever. >.>

24th April 2008, 12:36 AM

I name any pokemon that I ever plan on using. I usually try to put some thought into the names, where they have at least some level of meaning.

I have:

My Torterra, LaTerre
My Venusaur, Apollo
My (female) Luxray, Lucia
My (female) Pidgeotto (Soon to be Pidgeot), Ciel
My Lucario, Tristram
My Gardevoir, Felice
My Quilava (Soon to be Typhlosion), Prometheus (This was actually taken from my main character in PMD2.)
My Glaceon, Proteus (I gave it that name when it was still an Evee and I hadn't decided what its evolution would be.)

Still haven't figured out what to name my Crobat.

Also, trite and overdone a joke as it may be, I so want to try nicknaming a Mudkip "so i herd u". Too bad it's one character too long.

"so i herd u grew to level 6!"

28th April 2008, 11:32 AM
Pidgeot - Hot Dog (joke that hot dogs are made from pigeons, boots, and raccoons)
Fearow - Pecker (from my first Red Version game, looked like a woodpecker so I named him so, found out later what a "double-meaning" was)
Ninetales - Stewart (I had no idea that Ninetales could be male, named him after genders were put in play)
Venomoth - Angel Dust (don't do drugs kids)
Rapidash - Light Me (sounded cool or something)

Swampert - Squishy (he likes to play in the mud...which is squishy...)
Mightyena - Fluffpants (she's shiny and looks like gold pants from the 60's or whatever)
Linoone - Crotch Rkt (I would use him and think of motorcycles)
Ludicolo - Quackers (sounds hot)
Masquerain - PeepingTom (the whole giant eyes thing)
Shedinja - The Hulk (don't remember why I named it that)
Delcatty - Tamagotchi (she sleeps a lot...and poops...)
Swalot - Ana Mia (anorexia/bulimia)
Camerupt - The Flash (because he moves fast)
Grumpig - Bacon (mmm...)
Cacturne - Cottonelle (baby soft)
Flygon - Puff This (Puff the Magic Dragon...or weed)

Torterra - TMNT (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles)
Kricketune - Thug Luva (I have no idea)

Bastiodon - Beauty (I was going to call Vespiquen this, but decided to spice things up)
Vespiquen - Beast (because she is)
Gastrodon - The Blob (and it ate EVERYONE)
Mismagius - Scrm4IcCrm (screaming for ice cream - banshee, it made sense to me)
Hippowdon - Jenny 20 (it's a male...no clue)
Toxicroak - Lick This (the whole licking toads thing)
Abomasnow - Stumpy (looked like a tree stump when he was a Snover)

Yeah, most of mine have names that I really just...make up on the spot...I do that with everyone...I have names in my head when I meet a person.

Please don't ban me. >_<

Doe's anyone know how I should nickname my Sandshrew?

28th April 2008, 5:08 PM
Doe's anyone know how I should nickname my Sandshrew?Call it Artigli, Spanish for Claws.

I tend to nickname them, then put that nickname into different languages.For example:


•Mawile=Blade=Lámina(But you can't get a á so it would be Lamina.And it's in Spainish)

•Spiritomb=Darkness=Obscurité(Again, the é would be e, and it's in French)
•Leafeon=Leafy(Very creative)=Belaubt(German)

•Gligar=Crush=Écrasement(The É would be E and it's in French)

.....Woah, long list.

28th April 2008, 6:14 PM

28th April 2008, 8:31 PM
I nickname virtually all of my 'mon, simply because to me, they're like little pets. I'd want to differentiate among them all, and names help with that. Besides, it's fun coming up with names for all of them. This time around, I'm using an alphabet system. I started with the letter E (randomly chosen) and beginning with my starter, every pokemon that I obtained was given a name beginning with the next letter of the alphabet. When I got past Z, I'd begin with A all over again. :p

It's a fun way to name things, but I'm beginning to think I'm running out of X names. xD

To those of you who don't name your pokemon: is it because they're more like bits of data to collect, and you don't really form any attachments to them? Or is it for some other reason? I'm curious. :)

The only ones I don't name are the ones I catch purely to trade away, since I know most people don't want a pokemon with a nickname. :(

28th April 2008, 8:47 PM

okay...i know these may be a bit corny, but honest opinions, what do you think?

Eeveelution Team

Chlora (female): Leafeon
Artico (male): Glaceon
Spirit (female): Espeon
Soul (male): Umbreon
Volcannon (male): Flareon
Rogue (female): Vaporeon

WE nickname, as stated earlier in the thread, if you even read that part, because it gives them more personality. It's what sets us aside from being a computer in the game, and gives our character and pokemon originality.

So my Garchomp, I've named Acerbitas, when I get my Spiritomb I will call it Netspooky, and I'm still undecided on the name of my Umbreon.

I think I posted some of my nicknames in another thread that died out. I'm too lazy to retype all of the names so here are the ones for my extended party.


5th May 2008, 2:25 AM
What should I name a yanma?

Personally, for Yanma, I would prefer names that reflect the incredible flying/hunting/optical abilities of a dragonfly (Hence my Yanmega's name: Ace). Eagle Eye, Air Raid, Snatch, Chopper, for a few examples.

Names having to do with the wind, like Zephyr, are appropriate as well. If you're going for something...cuter, something like Zippy would work.

Obviously, I prefer very thematic names.

5th May 2008, 2:26 AM

8th May 2008, 9:24 PM
I rarely use names for my Pokemon. I think it is stupid.

8th May 2008, 9:35 PM
I rarely use names for my Pokemon. I think it is stupid.

Tell me why, 4 out of 6 pokemon in my team are named, I like names, they make them more like your own pokemon.

9th May 2008, 12:07 AM
I haven't done these yet, but:

Bibarel--2 HP EVs

9th May 2008, 12:18 AM
I only nickname the pokemon with extreme sentimental value to me. Such as my venasaur Venus, she has been with me for a while. Or my blastoise Shelly, named in honor of my very first pokemon. Naming is fun, but I only give them names if they have been with me through a lot in my games

9th May 2008, 2:27 AM
I nicknamed my shiny metagross 'Metagold'

I also named a linoone Token, after that one episode ^^

9th May 2008, 3:48 AM
I nicknamed my my Shiny Alakazam "Einstein"
COOL eh..!?!

Lin Kong Shu
9th May 2008, 2:54 PM
707: Yes. I do the same thing. Because of that, most of my pokémon don't have nicknames. (70% of my pokémon...)
My Rayquaza... I got it, when i startede in Emerald. My Littlebrother gave it to me. I choosed the nickname... Ray... Oh, crap. Such an ordinary name, yet again. But my favorite anyway.^^
Anyway, here are the nicknames - from My Legendary Trainer Card:
Giratina: Gangow. (Miniform of Gigantshadow... Eh.)
Rayquaza: Ray.
Groudon: (Don Ground. Pretty nice name though.)
Mewtwo: Daisuke. (Ordinary Japanese name...)
Registeel: Steelie. (Bah.)
Uxie: Sleepwalker.

9th May 2008, 5:03 PM
I named my Rotom "t0m.c0.uk" lol, i like using him in battles.

My staraptor is called Mach-7 because i maxed it's speed EVs.

I'm going to get an Electrode called Year 2000, i changed my DS clock time so it says obtained january 1st 2000.

I got a Blissey off the GTS called Clover as well.

I used to have a ninjask called Unko off the GTS but I traded it away.

My friend has an EV trained shiny Weaville called Speedy-G and a lickilicky called Gum!

9th May 2008, 11:13 PM
I never nicknamed my pokemon. Well, actually I did when I was younger, but I never do it now.

10th May 2008, 12:23 AM
I just randomly name my pokemon. usually hear a name on tv or radio, or read it, or think of something that's a little radical. some pokemon i really wanna train, however, i consider the name carefully.

10th May 2008, 1:00 AM
In my team:

2 dratinis: test1(female) and test 2(male)
Dragonite(female): Ari
Palkia: Ryuu
Sceptile(male): Krryle

10th May 2008, 1:06 AM
Rayquaza - Emerald
Groudon - Ruby
Kyogre - Sapphire
Magikarp - Sparky
Blaziken - Blade
Charizard - Rizardon

- And that's about it. Nicknames are cool, but I don't like how you can't change nicknames in a trade. I mean if you do a trade inside the game with a computer controlled player, they always nickname their pokemon (Who wants a Lickitung named Marc?). Once I also got a Dialga named (a swear word that really means pregnant dog) in the GTS, which was really unfair.

10th May 2008, 1:24 AM
This is going to be long...

Nightingle/Umbreon(i tried to fit in Nightingale)

Thats all my level 100s(up to MISSINGNO.) and some others

i nicknamed my piplup mumble when i got it as my starter

11th May 2008, 12:29 AM
I didn't care for nicknames until D/P, really.
Mainly because I was younger and could never think of a good enough nickname.
My Pearl team was:

Yeah, I stole the nickname Mentok for Alakazam from Dis, I like it, so I'm gonna use it. :P

11th May 2008, 10:10 PM
Lol, Most of my nicknames are inapropriate,,,

My favourite has to be a Pidgey Based on a womans....Area

His name is Star*

14th May 2008, 8:18 PM
I often name my Pokemon after well-known/obscure characters from a variety of shows, any fans of Youtube Poop and the whole Mama Luigi thing will know why my Makuhita is called "FIRE SUMO!!" :p

15th May 2008, 12:05 AM
i name them usually after their japanese names or i leave it. on rare occasions i give random names such as slobrizzle on my slowbro.

15th May 2008, 8:14 AM
i used to nickname but ever since i got wi-fi i try to keep it originol names

15th May 2008, 8:30 AM
I give them nicknames related to there type and what they represent.

15th May 2008, 8:55 AM
Mine's in my signature.

15th May 2008, 5:56 PM
I started nicknaming my Pokés since 3rd Generation. Usually only those I end up EV Training and using up in proper battles. Though I started nicknaming my in-game Team since Diamond as well.

I'm not too good with nicknames. I just give them a name that fits them, their japanese name or a variation if I prefer it, a shortened name, and sometimes, a more creative name with some meaning. But I think there's a nice side about nicknaming them. It just feels nice, I dunno why. ^^

Among my nicknames are...

Kireihana - My Bold Bellossom, and right now, my only one. But my favorite, though. It's just Bellossom's japanese name, which I think is cuter. :3
Gardy - My Modest Gardevoir. Just a cute way of shortening Gardevoir, really. XD
Kairon - My Jolly Pinsir. I grew tired of his previous name (Pimpsir. ;)), so I just changed his japanese name a bit, so it'd sound cooler.
Doku - My Calm Tentacruel. Just a short version of his japanese name, Dokukurage.
Rentt - My Rash Luxray. Kinda based after his japanese name, but with some feel of Röntgen, or X-Rays, or something. XD
Zilant - My Adamant Salamence. One of my best, though it was just the name of some russian dragon I found at Wikipedia. I liked it, so I picked it for him. XP
Mimi - My Impish Lopunny. Short form of her japanese name again. But it's also a fitting english name for her.
Sexy - The nickname I gave the Lopunny I used in-game. Self-explanatory, really. :p
Persephone - My Timid Roserade. Persephone was a greek goddess, daughter of the goddess of Nature, and who eventually got married with Hades. Roserade is Grass, and she has a rather demonic look, so it fits her well. :D
Anubis - My Lonely Riolu, still un-trained. It's just obvious if you know the egyptian god, really. I always thought Lucario would be based after Anubis at first. XD
Apollo - My Careful Tyrogue, bound to become a Hitmonchan. Another greek-origin name. Just sounds cool and fitting for Hitmonchan. XP

This is it for now.

16th May 2008, 5:16 AM
I LOVE to nickname my pokemon. It gives them a type of character they need. I have a few names-

Manectric- TuffStuff
I named him this as an electrike, but I dont think it fits anymore now that he's evolved.
Toxicroak- SlippyToad
From star fox. Man does that toad get on my nerves.
Metagross- Steven
After Steven who owns a Metagross
Grumpig- Grumpy
Um...I was bored?
Shedinja- Silhouette
Sounds cool.
That's all for now cause Im just borrowing the game from a friend.

16th May 2008, 8:14 AM
I only ever give nicks to my core team members and I usually regret the name about 20minutes later.
Current list:

Gyarados : Blitzkreig (Have been naming my Gyarados this since Red!)
Staravia : McFly (ugh)
Gardevoir : Spectre
Metagross : Weapon X (double ugh)
Luxray : FlashDance
Ditto : Concubine (Ditto's not on my team... but he only serves one purpose and is named accordingly! XD)

16th May 2008, 10:33 AM
I usually give them quick nicknames.

Torchic - Torcho
Chimchar - Chimly

Sometimes random names. I have a Snorlax called ZZZZZZZ. Am Absol called Soul and a Psyduck called Psycho.

Nicknames are cool to do.

16th May 2008, 10:47 AM
I've always named my pokemon ever since i got red for my birthday in '99! My charizard was called Salem at the time!

Ladyblue (Luxio) - name of scarfaces mate in the animals of farthing wood (blue fox)
Ponyta -(flare - obvious really)
Staravia - (hawk also obvious)
Murkrow - (mobboss also obvious)

16th May 2008, 2:54 PM

17th May 2008, 3:47 PM
This was funny...

I recently re-named my Snorunt "Igloo." I then saw myself on TV and the name rater was complimenting me on my choice. Igloo is ridiculous for a name, isn't it?
