Sadarac, in battles wuth other people it is very confusing for your opponent if you have all the same names. Like this:
PKMN Trainer Nick sent out Hi(lvl 100 Giratina)
Go, Garchomp
Garchomp used Outrage!
Hi fainted.
PKMN Trainer Nick sent out Hi(lvl 100 Kyogre)

Chimchar/Monferno/Infernape - Blazape
Articuno - PK-Freeze

Whenever I get a few pokemon of the same species, like Dragonites, which I obsess over until they are level 100, I like to name then something alike. On my old fire red game, (WHICH GOT STOLEN BY SOME JERK ON A PLANE) I had 5 Dragonites...
Girls

Crystal
Ruby
Sapphire

Boys
Emerald
Diamond

They all have the names of Jewels, and I was currently training Amethyst, but then it got stolen.
I mostly name pokemon after features I see on them, like....
Espeon - Jewel
Umbreon - Ring
Flareon - Glow
Vaporeon - Fin
Jolteon - Bristle
Leafeon - Tropic
Glaceon - Mist

4th November 2008, 6:59 PM
I usually end up naming my pokemon after random stuff, or if I've watched/read an anime/manga that I really liked I'll name them after characters in the series.

My latest team on Ruby,

Swampert - Thors
Swellow - Lydia
Gardevoir - Yvla
Camerupt - Thorkell
Zangoose - Askeladd
Flygon - Thorfinn


I typically give them real names as opposed to pet names (like a Pikachu nicknamed PIKA).

5th November 2008, 5:04 PM
Hmm. I tend to give them real names instead of cheesy names, and many are Japanese.

Tangrowth - Mojo (<3)
Tyranitar - Hakaisha
Garchomp - Samehada
Aerodactyl - Kamisori
Dusknoir - Zetsumei
Magnezone - Jishaku
Empoleon - Tsunami

And a bunch of others. I nickname every pokemon I use competitively. On Platinum, since you can only have 5 english letters, I've given them short names. My party is

Infernape - Gouka
Staraptor - Ace
Gastrodon - Umi
Bidoof - Doof

Something I've always wanted to do is train a Bidoof to lv 100 and name it Bidoofus. It sounds retarded yet royal at the same time. Enter, the great Bidoofus!

I knew a guy who nicknamed his shiny Tangrowth VegiRamen.

When I catch random pokemon, I like to nickname them random things. Like a bunch of Bidoofs to trade to my brother's Diamond since he was starting over and wanted to keep a few strong pokemon. I nicknamed a Bidoof BurgerKing. My bro named one BK Value. Dunno why.

Mespirit- MARMOSET (cause marmosets are awesome)
Cradily- Bleeper (It looks like it would bleep at me)
Psyduck- become nag (It's a duck. Ducks nag people for bread)
Seaking- PEAS (Pea rymes with sea. Peaking would have been better, but meh)
Aerodactyl- HORSE FACE (It looks like a horse face to me)

I'll post some more another time.

*I still have a lot of Pokemon with nicknames, but it will make my post too long. ^.^*

Not a big fan of nicknaming my Pokemon. Other than just making it so their name isn't all in caps. Like if I was to trade someone my Pidgey I'm pretty sure they would hate it being named Butts. . ha Butts used Gust.

Classic.

the_eevee_breeder
12th November 2008, 12:52 AM
Call the Abra Shiika if it's a girl, and Kohta for a boy.

I'm guessing your Espeon is a boy, so call it Horos or something similar.

Call the Aipom....Kyo. Don't really know why, it just seems good.

As a rule, I don't name a Pokemon after a Pokemon move (with Darkbite the Mightyena being the exception, due to lack of imagination/sleep at the time).

Usually, I base nicknames around elements/appearances/locations/Pokedex info/situation at time of encounter. If I have a backstory developing around a Pokemon, I will name according to the backstory.

For example...
Desertsea (Swampert/Female) - named for elements
Tesability (Typhosion/Female) - named for backstory
Neos (Ditto) - named for backstory, full name is Neos Rivetter
Yoyo (Zigzagoon/Male) - named for character in other game: Yoyo from JSRF-Jet Set Radio Future
Amity (Happiny/Female) - named for hatching location: Amity Park
Turnback (Shiny Crobat/Female) - named for encounter location: Turnback Cave
Surprise (Wynaut/Male) - named for situation at the time of hatching: I forgot I had the Wynaut egg!
Chaser (Lucario/Male) - named for situation at the time of hatching: I was chasing Cresselia for capture
Deception (Mawhile/Female) - named for Pokedex info: Mawhile is the Deception Pokemon and currently the only Pokemon that has fooled me into thinking it was a different type than what it really was
Plushie (Dratini/Male) - Named for randomness: I was holding a plushie when I named one this in PMD2. ^^;

I currently own three Pokemon, each on different versions. I'll start with my most centrally played version and work down. =P On Pearl, I have a Turtwig named Tip-Tup (some of you may recognize that name, as it's the name of that turtle from Banjo Kazooie XD); on LeafGreen I own a Charmander named Edward (no affiliation to the vampire); and on Emerald I have a Treecko named Zayne (just purely random =>).

I have always nicknamed my Pokemon from as far back as I can remember. I feel it does give your Pokemon more personality and also helps make them seem like they're truly yours.

SethVirgo
19th November 2008, 1:45 AM
I used an online name generator for some names, especially the very odd ones. however, I do poke at my creative imagination and come up with those of my own, or use normal names, but alter the spelling... e.g:

Tyrsarczyk-Breloom
The last name of a character in a Pokemon Manga/Doujin i'm working on

These next two have similar names, meaning Bright, and are anagrams of each other.
Zahra-Kingdra
Azhar-Togekiss

Rencelau-Starmie.. this one I got while wakling to my friend's house. I was looking for his street, and found Rencelau ST interesting...

Andronikus-Metagross
Andronicus, the latinized version, was from one of shakespear's play [titus andronicus]

Ereshkigal-Yanmega
The name of the spell Nergal used in the first Fire Emblem for the GBA [america] [lyn, hector, eliwood]

these just sounded cool
Rakujyn-Salamence
Zilnoth-Dragonite

Adraj-Dragonite.. i was looking for a middle-eastern feel for this one

I have many others, but they' too cool ATM [for my Uber party]... i might add them later. Yeah... sometime I put a lot of work into my pokemon names... they re my pokemon and I put a lot of work in everything about them, save for contests.

If I had a female shiny Salamence I would name it 'Reget',
meaning "She will rule",in Latin.
A guy shiny Salamence would make a nice,Neon.

All of them are females
Infernape: Cynder- dragon boss from Spyro
Roselia: Nettle- a character in my fanfic that will soon be destroyed
Murkrow: Darke- dunno, thought it was a nice name
Golduck: Kappa- after the japanese sea monster

Here's a few of my Pokemon nickname ideas. Use them if you want.

Electric Pokemon : Eyclar for male, Elektra for female
Flying Pokemon : Oiselle for female, SilentWings any gender, Feather female, Aigle for male, Streak, Sharpclaws, Iron beak...okay getting really weird.
Fire Pokemon: Flame, Feu, Cinder, Pyra or Pyro
Water Pokemon: Bubbles, Eau, Wave
...and it just gets weirder

Rapidash - Herbi
Alakazam - Spoon

I only nicname my EV-trained pokes. Here's a few highlights:

Crobat: Dr. Acula (Scrubs fans will remember this one!) - For a combination of a vampire bat with it's purpose of a surgical strike!

Dragonite: Bahamut - the 'King of the Dragons' from the Final Fantasy series

Linoone (shiny): FrankBurns - named for the character of Frank Burns from M*A*S*H (one of my favorite shows) whose nicname was 'ferritface'

Gallade (shiny): Megaman - with the blue of his shiny version, this guy reminds me a bit of the blue bomber (and is just as awesome!)

Charizard: Falkor - from The Neverending Story; Falkor was a good luck dragon

I actually stopped nicknaming pokemon, unless I have an excellent name. Eg. I called my Unown "Incognito" as in the foreign name. I also called my Forry "Nibelhiem."

Go to the Name Rater, and delete the whole name. Then confirm it, and it will revert to normal.

At times, when thinking of names outside of what I was talking about before, I start with what the pokemon is based off of, and go down a list of related things. Mamoswine>Swine>Pig>Piglet>Runt. Not a good example, but I hope you get the idea.

I normally nickname my Pok&#233;mon after what type they are, but recently I've been playing Fire Emblem a lot. This led to nicknaming my Kadabra Saleh, my Lucario Rennac and my Rapidash L'Arachel...
Other than that, I've nicknamed my Empoleon Hikaru, Luxray Kovu(yeah, that Disney character from the Lion King 2) and my Staraptor Loryn. I tend to give them even weirder nicknames though. There was that one time I got into a craze over a cartoon. All of my team members in Emerald were named after cartoon characters until I realised that the nicknames were stupid...

Hey i need help nicknaming my Ambipom and Gallade thanks

Sunwukong, the Monkey King, for Ambipom, and perhaps Sasaki or Kojirō for Gallade as Sasaki Kojirō was a Japanese legendary swordsman.
I always like to name after certain subjects I like, as said many times, now, or to name based on a related item.
So, ask yourself what you like, and try going from there.

anyway....

i suck at thinking up nicknames..i called my blastoise shellshock after the one in the first movie (there wasnt enough room to write shellshocker) and i called my swampert swampy. my suggestion for anyone who likes to give their pokemon nicknames but struggle to think of one either name them after an attack or a feature they have (like a jigglypuff is pink so call it pinky) or shorten their name or add something to it like i did with swampy.

I had both of those pokemon. My Feraligatr was called Grindabos and my Charizard was called Drakoniss. I really don't have boarders between male and female when naming my pokemon, but if you do, may I suggest Cynder, Amber, and my personal favorite, Zippo. XD Flamdra also works nicely.

As for my pokemon, My trusty Toreterra is a female, I named it Terracotta. XD just fits. I love plays on words..

And for your Umbreon, how about Hadise, or however the ancient god of the underworld's name is corrently spelled..

I only have a Marshtomp right now, but I named him Seashell. =P I think Gelbert is quite original though.

Since I last posted, I caught a Psyduck, Buizel, and Shellos.

Psyduck = Kalaku (after the "Kalaku River" that Haku from Spirited Away was named after)

Buizel = Atlantis

Shellos = Aquario

1) I don't nickname a Pokemon unless I plan to keep a Pokemon whose species is the same as on of the Pokemon whom I already own.

One example it Arbok. I caught a couple of Arbok in the Great Marsh. I decided to nickname the second Pokemon I obtained.

2) I also nickname certain Pokemon if I am transfering them from my 3rd Gen Games.

Two examples are Nyka the Blaziken and Brianna the Milotic.

3) But normally, I just keep the names that they have. Blastoise is Blastoise.
