I love nicknaming my pokemon. I usually name them differently by gender.

Luna (f-Espeon "shiny") Luna meaning moon in spanish.
Sol (m-Umbreon "shiny") Sol meaning sun in spanish.
(Kind of the opposite of what they're supposed to represent, but I like 'em)

Alexander (Bronzong)
Nerofrost (m-Empoleon)
Mr.Claus (m-Delibird)
Titan (m-Tyranitar)
Jeatstream (f-Aerodactyl)
IQ (m-Alakazam)
GassyG (f-Ghastly "shiny yay")

I got a lot more, but these are some of my favorites.

Just wondering, but why is Espeon Luna and Umbreon Sol, since they represent the opposite time of day?

I only nickname my sexist team, really. They're all named after my (real-life) group members, so yeah.

Skarmory - Natalia
Vespiquen - Amber (close friend, and my second sidekick)
Milotic - Astrid (yet another close friend, and my first sidekick)
Roserade - Amrita (third sidekick)
Heracross - Heidi
Garchomp - Pedro (ok...well, the only male in the team)

So, um...don't say 'girls rule'...I'm a guy, just so you know...but I have close connections with them, so yeah.

I just posted these in The Nicknaming Contest, wondering if anyone here gets the reference behind them =P
Selmak (Entei)
Lantash (Raikou)
Jolinar (Suicune)
They're all Tok'ra from Stargate SG-1.

...and they all got killed at some time or another. .__.

I nickname each and every one of my shinies, along with most EVed guys and, more recently, regular teams for playing through the game. I don't nickname random Pokémon I catch exclusively for dex purposes; it's just a waste of time.

On non-permanent saves, I like to use themes. I did a Stargate SG-1 theme on one play through Emerald (my trainer was O'neill, and my Pokémon were other SGC personnel :D), and a Tiberian Sun theme on another play. (This is why the OT of my shiny Camerupt is "KANE".)

I'm a big fan of naming patterns, and clever, appropriate names. For instance, I always name Numel/Camerupt after cities in British Columbia. This started when my brother mistook Camerupt's name for "Kamloops" when he happened to be flipping past the anime. It was such a brilliant name (a camel with loops on its side -- Cam Loops) that I had to give it to my Camerupt I was raising. When I found myself with a shiny Camerupt, I just had to name him "Nanaimo," because of not only my already established pattern, but also because shiny Camerupt's colour scheme looks just like that of a Nanaimo bar! (A kind of chocolate/coconut bar with a yummy pale yellow filling :D)

Other names are in-jokes (Hip-Hoppip from the Never Ending Cheat, Jadalga, for the fake Jade version of Pokémon, partner game to Diamond, another fake), and others, still, are just clever. Some are just for people I know or famous historical figures, like N. Tesla, my (former) Electivire.

So yeah, I put way too much thought into things like this.

Chimecho - Xyla
Well...I'm weird like that. And at the time I was thinking about day and night themselves and seeing as it's day at one part of the world and night in the other I decided opposite names would be cool, and they fit their gender. Luna=Female;196; Sol=Male;197;

I always nickname my Pokemon.

If you want examples....

These are the nicknamed Pokemon I have on Diamond:

Dialga: ShaizaHead (I know it's scheisse, but it wouldn't fit =P. It's German for... well let's see if you can guess)
Zubat: BatOfDeath (Lol, dumb)
Monferno: Oranges (Got in a trade, and my name on the chat thingy is Oranges_Rock)
Spiritomb: I[insert heart here]Oranges2 (Also got in trade on the Wifi chat thingy.)

And I think that's it.

Empoleon - Dynablade (bird from the Kirby series)
Staraptor - RAVA (inside joke)
Palkia - RUKIA (from Parukia)

Spriteman
20th May 2008, 5:23 PM
I nickname most of my pokemon, if I remember too. And I rarely settle on one too, unless it's awesome =\ Some are innapropriate though. I mean, I called a Mantine 'F*cker' yesterday because it was hard as hell to catch (on Crystal, but w/e). My starter Gyarados in Pearl was called Mr. Floppy. Innuendo ftw!

Mattyz
20th May 2008, 5:25 PM
I nickname only pokes I use for Wi-fi or battle tower or something cool, not random pokes I catch! :D

Latios - Silver
Groudon - Ruby
Kyogre - Sapphire
Rayquaza - yea u guessed Emerald
Mamoswine - Shinswa
Roserade - LeafBandit

22nd May 2008, 11:29 PM
I, very uncreatively, named all of my Pokemon from D/P after the meerkats of Meerkat Manor. xD Most of which are named after real people, such as Shakespeare. :P

Empoleon - Flower
Luxray - Comlumbus
Roserade - Motzart
Drifblim - Einstein
Abamasnow - Tosca
Lucario - Shakespeare
Glaceon - Kinkaju

I've already planned my Pokemon for Platinum, though, and decided to actually give them creative, well thought out nicknames. :D So far I've only thought of a few:

Drifloon - Réveillon
(The name of the man who made/decorated the canvas of the first hot air ballon)
Surskit - Veliidae
(The species (or was it genus?) of a kind of bug similar to a water skater)
Raichu (who can Surf) - Kahanamoku
(The name of the Hawaiian man who popularized surfing as a sport)

I still have plenty of others to think of. : D

~Cosmic~
22nd May 2008, 11:42 PM
Just named my Honchkrow Capone and my Ninjask Shinobi.

atheistdrifloon
23rd May 2008, 12:52 AM
A few of the more interesting ones:

Segfault - Porygon-Z
Corregidor - Forretress
Hindenburg - Drifblim
Polaris - Starmie
Soulreaper - Togekiss
Stalin - Psyduck (Hearing the nickname guy on TV proclaim that "the nickname 'Stalin' is magnificence itself" was interesting...)
Lenin - Marill
Arsonpuppy - Growlithe
Prometheus - Charizard

23rd May 2008, 5:51 AM
my friend names his pokemon oddly... i cant remember any for the life of me except his illumise named pops.

His brother names them like 00-1-IL

I make names of stuff I am reminded of when I catch them i.e. grodon - uberdon, kyogre-seaterror, blaziken-KFChar

Blaine's Cousin
23rd May 2008, 11:59 AM
Heh...I only have a Bunch of pokemon with nicknames

Magnezone - Ironclang (also tempted to call it Krang, as it remembered me the Krang's Saucer of TMNT 4)

Luxray - Lumine

Empoleon - Oh he had a lot of names! First was Pen, then Pen Pen and finally the Penperor! xD

Blaziken - Kagami (when he had mirror move, the name made more sense...now just sounds neat)

PorygonZ - Oooooohhh i had a brainstorm with this one, first was C++, then MacOS, and now what it is today....MS-DOS! xD (oooooh! i wish i could had enough space to call it Intel Inside!.....many in the internets would LOL 'bout that!, not to mention my friends! xD)

Fearow - Spireder (don't ask what it means.....i don't know exactly why, but ever since i had RBY, i always carry a Fearow with the same name, it's kinda symbolic to me, as he got me out of much troubles in the old days...and sometimes, it still is)

Dragonite (female, mother) - Kairyu (yeah yeah, unoriginal)

Dragonite (male, son) - Hiryu (yeah yeah, even less original)

Turtwig - Twiggy!

I have more but i think i've said enough....

I give nicknames only to the pokemon who will be on my team.

For fire pokemon, it's usually Flare, Wildfire, Blaze, or Cinder. I also have a tradition of using a set of names: Sturm and Drang. Bolt is a name I usually reserve for an electric type. Otherwise, I try to find a name that "fits" a particular pokemon.

I looked at all the names here and I think I have some names that haven't been used from this list (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Decepticons)(Mostly because they are names of Decepticons) I'm also thinking of using names from another series.

Anyway my team
Cyclonus-Dusknoir
Scourge-Latios
Mixmaster-Hippowdon
Overbite-Garchomp
Blot-Abomasnow
Chromia-Froslass


You know Random, Scorpinok sounds as a very nice name for a Drapion when you look at it closely xD

I love nicknaming. :D
I used to just derive the names from the species (i.e., Swampert = SWAMPT) and put the name in all caps. Now I have to make it grammatically correct. I get really mad when I pokemon I get from a trade is unnicknamed/name is all in caps. I also get more creative. Like my Registeel is Lergeste. Sometimes I name it by it's whatever you call it (i.e., Lucario = the aura pokemon). My Lucarios's name is Borealis. :D

I don't nickname my pokemon often, but when I do it's funny. For instance, my sand cloak Wormadam is nicknamed Pizza, because that's what it looks like. Maybe I'll nickname a trash cloak Wormadam Cotton Candy to continue the trend. But it has to be less than 10 letters, so maybe CandyFloss, another name for the stuff. Yum, food.

Napoleon the Empoleon! Idk, it just came to me and I named it that.
I named my Chimchar on Diamond Haxx because it got critical hits really often.
On Blue once, I was going to nickname my Bulbasaur "Seed", but I accidentally didn't hit the D and so it was named SEE forever. It had sentimental value by the time I reached Lavender Town and the name rater, lol.

Paper Wings, is your Abra male or female? I'd name it Houdini.

I love nicknames! I try to name all mine, but I've been breeding quite a few lately that I'd like to be able to trade, and a lot of people won't even consider trading for ones with nicknames. It's pretty ridiculous-- one could always change them before the trade. No harm done.

I especially love getting ones with thoughtful or pretty names in trades, or ones in foreign languages. I want to start collecting Evoli, but I rarely see people with French games.

On a side note, I have a shiny Jolteon named Lime. I luff her. <3

First I got a porygon-z and I am planning to call it something with 'digital' Have you got some suggestions with that word?

I also got a hippowdon, garchomp, regirock, heatran, gliscor. Have you got some suggestions? I dont like names such as 'dragonfire' but normal names like the helix for a metagross.

I hope you can help me

Thanks in advance,

Eevee-
Vapoureon- Sapphire
Jolteon- Citrine
Flareon- Topaz/Ruby
Espeon- Pearl/Quartz
Umbreon- Onyx
Leafeon- Peridot
Glaceon- Opal/Diamond

to Romke

A name with something to do with computers for 'Porygon-Z' could be something like 'Gigabyte'

but it depends on your own personal taste really

Yay, you got none right. And it is a 'yay' - I wanted to avoid the famous gem stones in favour of less-known ones.
So, would you have thought of...

Eevee - Baculite ;133;
Vapoureon - Iolite ;134;
Jolteon - Heliodor ;135;
Flareon - Pyrope ;136;
Espeon - Lavulite ;196;

Bronzong=Discus
Roserade=Carnival

In-Progress Team (the one I'll use competitively, only listed if nicknameable)
(Shiny) Honckkrow=Qute
Minun=Icecream
Grumpig=Perla (lame, but I can't imagine her as anything else!)
Sandslash=Pat

Piplup- Caspian
Charamander (girl)- Fiore
Charamander (boy)- Dante
Blaziken- Blaze (yes... it's sooo common :P)
Eevee (girl)- Charity (only if I'm not going to evolve it.)
Cyndaquil(male)- Ty
Sceptile (boy)- Blade (another common name...)
Nidoking- Kingsly

And other nicknames.

I call my Garchomp "Abrasier", it's an all around abrasive pokemon.

I don't have suggestions for the others you listed because I haven't used them. I usually think up names over the hours that I spend breeding/hatching them.

I try to use as mundane a name as possible, and it's harder than it sounds. My Palkia's name is Steve.

However, the three psychic imps of the lakes were so freaking stressful to catch that I named them Weeburt, Mittrip, and some other thing I can't recall at the moment.

i tend to nickname pokemon by roman gods and heroes i have studied, or just give a ultra cool name that corresponds with the pokemon like, if its a snorlax, i name it collosius (its not god but it sounds cool and works with snorlax), or maybe if a machamp, atlas (god who held heavens upon shoulders)

MANMOOZLE
24th June 2008, 3:23 AM

Leafeon - Kirin (japanese god)
Rampardos - Mos (random, thought it sounded cool)

I just named my Raichu Razzle. I dunno why. It just came to me.

My nicknames take the species into account. for example, I would give a male lucario the names: Luo,Luco,Luso,Luro,and Lucaro.

In the meanwhile, a female Lucario will always get:Lua,Luca,Lusa,Lura, and Lucara.

I also go under this strict rule: Males always have "o' at the end of thier name, whiles females always get "a" at the end their names.

Wierd, but I like it.

I like naming my pokemon; I've done it since I first played Silver. Sometimes they have something to do with the pokemon but many times not at all xD
a few:

Charmander- Wrath
Espeon- Neo
Glaceon- Frostbite
Flareon- Leonard
Blastoise- Spirit
Rayquaza- Rayray
Regigigas- Nyoro-n
Cresselia- Juno
Snorlax- Pillow Man (I want a gigantic plushie snorlax :3)
Ampharos- Zzzzzt
Drifloon- Xoon
Munchlax- Chibi
Gyrados- Moot
Luxray- Veloxis (latin for swift. Too bad Luxrays aren't as fast as most electric pokemon >>)
Growlithe- Beast
Chansey- Eggo
Meowth- Moolah
Empoleon- Turinn
Togekiss- Kitty
Bidoof- Beavis
Gardevoir- Hobo
Raichu- CHUCHU (I also have a Pikachu named GROUDON, lol)

I name almost every single pokemon I catch, but if I'm breeding for trades I don't usually...

Rick Gastly will never give me up.

Shiny Espeon: Carbuncle (FF5 anyone?)
Scizor: Durandal (Sword in a legend, also Eliwood's sword in FE7)
Kingdra: Hurricane (See Typhlosion's comment)
Gliscor: Scorpion (Look at it. Also, see above comment)

And my favorite one...

Shiny Porygon-Z: H4Xx0r (Despite it's name, it is not a hack)

*$hinydragonite*
25th June 2008, 7:51 AM
Never really nicknamed any of my pokemon except a Porygon2, which i named Pory.exe...If I could I'd name my Darkrai Gomess (miniboss in LoZ: Majora's Mask that looks like Darkrai, except he carries a scythe and has bats fly around him) but unfortunately it has te OT of ALAMOS, so no nicknaming him

25th June 2008, 8:53 AM
Shiny Espeon: Carbuncle (FF5 anyone?)


Carbuncle was in a few FF's besides V, but that's an awesome name for an Espeon.

I nicknamed my pokemon in my diamond game, but that's it. And, it's only my team that's nicknamed and my Leafeon.

Leafeon - Synth - As in Synthesis.
Noctowl - Hermes - He's the Greek messenger of the gods and he flies me places
Shieldon - Smalls - I felt like making fun of it
Ponyta - Kazer - I couldn't think of anything when i named him
Alakazam - Chino - Again, brain fart

I need names for a female Psyduck and female Grotle. I need help for them.

Noheart
25th June 2008, 3:48 PM
I nickname my Pokémon a lot, actually.

I nickname them after a random deity from anceint myths, usually. Or I just think of something cool. I.e. I nicknamed my Umbreon HaloKitty, referring to the Hello Kitty! commercials, and the fact that he has halo's all over him. :D

25th June 2008, 6:58 PM
Carbuncle was in a few FF's besides V, but that's an awesome name for an Espeon.

True, but If I remember correctly, the Carbuncle in FF5 had a green body, and a red jewel in it's head, like a Shiny Espeon. That's why I mentioned FF5, plus, 5 has Gilgamesh. The coolest FF guy like, ever.

pokebreeder9100
26th June 2008, 4:54 PM
Well, what I do is often I name the Poke'mon that I use a lot, unless of course I got them in a trade. A good example is that I got a Charmander from my rarely used Fire Red onto my Leaf Green right from early on in both of them so I had Charmander and Bulbasaur. Then, when I finished my Diamond I transfered my then Charizard, but it had no nickname so...

I name my Poke'mon by appearance, by what they can do, by using parts of their names, or what I come up with.

This is my generally used Poke'mon and their nicknames if they have them. Don't burn me for Master, that and Darkrai + Shaymin was all I used hacks for.

;006; Charizard
;493; Master
;380; Dragonbird
;254; Leafstorm
;448; Aaron (after Sir Aaron from the movie)
;260; Muddy
;383; Landrise

29th June 2008, 5:05 PM
Here's a nicknaming tradition I have.

In generation 2, I named my fly pokemon "PKMNAirline" and my surf pokemon "PKMNBoatier". Ever since then, I've named my fly pokemon "PKMNAirlineMK[whichever mk it is (gen-1)]" and...not done anything for the surf name. I have no idea why it's inconsistent.

Oh yes, and in my Silver game, Typhlosion was temporarily called "Befancsion"

...

Garchomp = Toothy
Dusknoir = Ragnarok
Swampert = SwampDaddy (My favorite)

30th June 2008, 3:25 AM
I usually use Japanese names...like my vulpix was Kitsune[fox], pidgey was Tori[bird], and oh yeah, my flareon was Okibi[blazing fire] (these are gold/silver version pokes). I go for the japanese names that I like, since the english meaning is simple but in Japanese they are cool :D

Sabotendar
30th June 2008, 8:25 PM
i'm not the big nicknamer, most names i give are when i press yes to nickname by accident and cannot spell the poke's original name right

other than those is my Mr. Magoo a.k.a. Dragonite (i doubt many people know who Mr. Magoo is)
Zypher a.k.a. Leafeon ( i know gentle winds have nothing to do with grass but hey)
Panic! a.k.a. Togikiss (i hate the name togikiss, especially as it is my nasty plotter)
Caesar a.k.a. Infernape (for the pure hell of it)

I have only nicknamed my shiny Pokemon, and they're pretty crappy, too:

- Luxray = Nala (aren't I creative? :p)
- Lopunny = Chocolate
- Marowak = Bones
- Linoone = Slash
- Staraptor = Orion
- Shellos = Slugthing (hey, you try coming up with a better nickname for a clearly feminine Pokemon that happens to be male)

A little edit. I change shiny Espeon's name.

From Carbuncle ---> Aether

Before you say anything: Although I am a Fire Emblem fan, and a Ike fan, I didn't not get Aether from Fire Emblem. In Latin, Aether means "Heaven, Heavenly, or Celestial". Don't know why, but I like it...

I never nicknamed any of my Pokemon in Blue or Ruby, but I did start giving them nicknames starting with my LeafGreen and Pearl carts.

From my LeafGreen cart:

Blastoise - Leonardo (it's a blue turtle, need I say more?)
Pigeot - Hawke (after the Black Hole CO in AW2 and AW:DS, and his hairdo does resemble Pigeotto's frill)
Dragonair - Puff (the magic dragon)
Sandslash - Wolverine (it does have a passing resemblance)
Magmar - Scav (after one of my admins on another forum)
Raichu - Sparky


My Pearl cart, first play-through:

Empoleon - Iron Duke (look it up)
Kadabra / Haunter - none
Luxray - Leo (not really all that creative)
Staraptor - Falco (after the pilot from the Star Fox series)
Gyarados - Yamiryu (Dark Dragon)
Garchomp - Hammer (need I say more?)


Second play-through in Pearl:

Empoleon - Iron Duke (same as above)
Drifblim - Goodyear (ever watch sporting events?)
Luxray - Sphinx (since it's female and resembles a lion)
Roserade - Matador (resemblances matter)
Heracross - Metabee (everybody here's watched Saturday morning cartoons at one point or other before, right?)
Deoxys - none (since the OT is technically Gamestp)


Reserves (for when I get them):

Mismagius - Kerrigan (female Ghost)
Tyrannitar - Godzilla (giant green dinosaur)

Amorphous Form
2nd July 2008, 2:51 AM
I just Nickname my buds whatever pops to my mind when I catch them.

Examples-

Hitmonchan- Pistion
Luxray - Student
Venusaur - Colette
Flareon - Genis
Toxicroak - Slippy
Rhyperior - Titan
Gallade - Rend
Froslass - Maddison
Victreebel - Amazoness
Magmortar - Tenacity
Absol - Lucky
Dusknoir - B.Kookoo
Primeape - Traceur
Ect...

But,

Does anybody have a suggestion for a name for a Scizor? He's going to know False Swipe and will help with catching Legends.

[EDIT] I think I'll go for Hunter, thanks for the input. :)

2nd July 2008, 4:37 AM

Lostelle
2nd July 2008, 9:16 AM
Hunter is simple but fitting since it's primary purpose is to weaken legendaries. (Be careful with Heatran.)

Here are a few of my other nicknamed pokemon:
Tyranitar - Arockalypse (after a Lordi album)
Heracross - Doomtrain (a favorite GF/esper in FF8)
Houndoom - Cerberus (obviously)
Umbreon (shiney) - Valentine
Giratina - Hellmoth

I sent most of those to my cousin so he could put up a better fight.

HalcyonJon
2nd July 2008, 11:06 AM
I definitely nicknamed every single pokemon I obtained until I started catching/breeding them exclusively for trading and remembered that most people probably don't want them. It always bummed me out when I got a dude off the GTS or whatnot and (s)he didn't have a nickname, as, if nothing else, the ALL CAPS was loud and obnoxious. But, without further ado, my favorites:

Hippowdon - Brunhilde (remember the opera hippos in Disney's Fantasia?)
Froslass - La Llorona
Flaafy - Ali Baabaa
Clefairy - Treble
Bronzong - Liberty
Wailord - Melville (Moby Dick is my favorite book!)
Spoink - Wilbur (Only awesome 'cause I got seals to spell out "SOME PIG" when his pokeball opened)
Ditto - John Adams (During my epic quest to find an Adamant Ditto, I went through a LOT of nicknames)
Wynaut - Because
Seviper - Asmodeus (Redwall, anyone?)
Ursaring - Socrates (http://smbc-comics.com/index.php?db=comics&id=247&override=1)
And finally, my favorite, Machamp - Forewarned (think about it for a second)

I like nicknames that really have something to do with the Pokémon. Like "Sparky" on a Pikachu or "Rocky" on Geodude. I like to use "Pyro" for one of my Fire-types, for example.

I never had too many nicknames, just a few scatered here and there, and of course, my starter, but since I got Diamond, I've named every one I got.

My favorites: Charcoal-Charizard
Explosion- Typlosion
Flamechic-Blaziken (Not very manly, eh?)
King Flame- Infernape (i'll be changing my one in Platinum to Inferno..)

And, I've named every Legendary I've caught, usually after the game it's basd on, or something similar

Mewtwo- Two
Lugia- Silver
Ho-oh- Gold
Groudon- Ruby
Kyogre- Sapphire
Rayquazaa- Emerald
Mespirit- Emotion
Azelf-Willpower(After Pokedex entry)
Uxie-Knowledge (After Pokedex entry)
Dialga-Diamond (After Pokedex entry)
Giratina- Renegade (After Pokedex entry, in Platinum, I'll name it Platinum)
etc...Stuff like that. It makes me feel more connected with my Pokemon..and helps me remember stuff too!

'Sword' is a really cool name for Skarmory! ^_^

I usually don't nickname my Pokemon, and I haven't on Pearl, but I've been known to use their Japanese names from time to time, or something silly.

Oh, and of course I named my first Marill 'Pikablu' way back when lol ;183;

I hate nicknames. I really hate it when you get a poke in a trade and it has a name because you can't change it.

I completely agree.
At least decent nicknames that fit the Pokemon will do fine.

Haha, I used to catch Pokemon that were not popular within my group of friends and I'd purposefully catch those Pokemon and purposefully nickname those Pokemon that we all hated after my friends. Haha, lol.
And I'd enjoy hearing them cry about because we'd all just look at the thing laughing.

8th July 2008, 6:42 AM
I always nickname my Pokémon. The only ones I don't nickname are the ones I get in Nintendo Events (as I don't trade with anyone...can't really, as I don't have Wifi). It makes them feel more...mine. If I don't nickname them, it feels really weird. =/ Plus I feel like I remember which one is which. I never name the same Pokémon the same thing. Ex. Pikachu 1: Sparky; Pikachu 2: Thunder; Pikachu 3: Lightning; You get the point. xD

8th July 2008, 1:53 PM
Buonaparte the Empoleon
Ruby the Starmie
Sun Wukong the Infernape
Gligirl the female Gliscor (Gligirl is from the anime for those who don't know)
and Furry Bait the Lucario.

It was the first shiny I got.. caught as a Rhyhorn in the Safari Zone on sapphire.

Kovu-Luxray (kovu from the lion king 2, they have similar manes)

I named my Kyogre Kyle, my Groudon Barney, and my Rayquaza Rey. It doesn't really seem right NOT to nickname Pokémon. For example:

"Here, DOG! Fetch, DOG! Let's go for a walk, DOG. Now wait while I check on GOLDFISH."

Thing is, though, for some reason they changed names from ALL CAPS to Normal Capitalization when 4th Gen came around... so now all my imported, nicknamed Pokémon look really stupid.
