I have a evee LV1 and I want to know what to name it?

Well since you said it's going to be a Flareon... Why not go for Flare? Simple, yet effective. Or how about Radia if it's a female or Radion if it's a male.


Hm...
What's a good nickname (male and female) for a shiny swampert?

How about Ripcurl?


I named my pokemon after monsters in Greek mythology.

That's awesome. I'm Greek :P

I name my Pokemon after anime characters....

So Gohan= Chimchar
Shinx= Ichigo
etc.

But only when I want to mess around. Otherwise I name them after what I would name my children *crooked smile*

Hehe, I'm doing the same thing. Sometimes I name them after anime characters, characters from Japanese mythology, or people I really admire (usually taking their last name).

And no I don't have a PKMN with the name 'DiCaprio'. ;)

8th December 2008, 11:39 PM
The names I give my pokemon are somewhat repetitive. By that I mean that if one of my pokemon has that nickname, any others of that species I have nicknamed will have the exact same one.
Darkrai: Nightmare or Shadow
Shaymin: Rose or Flower
Arceus: Omnipotent
Manaphy: Prince
Suicune: Aurora
Celebi: Benevolent
Mewtwo: Genetic
Mew: Pinky
and so on.

I nicknamed my Skymin ;492-s; "Haxmin", because... well, you know. XD

I also nicknamed my noctowl (@v@) , that remembers me of his face. XD

My infernape is "FalcnPWNCH" (for Falcon Punch, obviously), and my Exeggutor is "Afro".

I luv lol nicknames, they are funny, and I think trainers that give funny names to their pokemon are... dunno... witty. More than the others, anyway.

10th December 2008, 8:37 PM
Unique nicknames can be very hard to come up with. You don't know how many Umbreons I've seen with the name "Halo", or a Salamence named "Draco" or "Drake".

I try to give my Pokemon unique and/or funny nicknames.
Ex: I named my female Wailord "AuntJemima" after that syrup brand, mocking the lady on the label.

I'm currently thinking of one for a Modest Omanyte I've recently bred- I'm thinking Tombola, after a friend of mine who is completely obssesed with the species, or maybe Miss USA. Idk.

When I run out of names I call them after random things like...

Male Leafeon-Mint

Not sure ;) I have a Raticate(Female) Named Toothy, but that's just me... Anyway, there's a lot of obvious Pokémon names but some are a challenge like Anorith, possibly Claws, and some are easy like Munchlax, Munchy or Munchums. If its LAX natured, Laxed Munch.

Let's see, how about Coral? I usually nickname pokemon based on what thing they're based from. Like, what you said, "dude, you got swept by a coral", which is silly.


In my Pokemon Pearl Version, I nicknamed my Empoleon Water but I want a better nickname. Can someone help me?

How about like what I posted in your club, Penny? I really like that nickname.

My Ninjask is named Buzzido, because its species name reminds me of the word "ninja" which reminds me of Samurai, which reminds me of the code of Bushido. So "Buzzido" is a mixture of the word Bushido and the word "Buzz" due to it being a bug pokemon.

My prized Houndoom is named Baskrville after the Sherlock Holmes story "The Hound of the Baskervilles."

My Celebi's name is "Timefaerie."

I personally don't like to nickname my pokemon, and I hate getting a pokemon with a nickname in a trade. Although in my Red version everything in my team has a human name that consists of only 3 letters. Also I sometimes like to nickname pokemon that I just use for Hm's that I don't want to give to a pokemon in my team(I normally give these pokemon names like buttface, loser, dorkwad, etc.).

I nicknamed almost all of my Pokémon in Yellow, but whenever I tried to get one out of the box, I was never able to remember the names of the ones I wanted, so I stopped until recently in Diamond. I love nicknames as they personalize your Pokémon, even though they’re just pixilated data.

My Diamond team:
Bullet – Dragonite
Krypton – Metagross
Enma – Infernape
Isaribi – Milotic (after that fish girl in one of the Naruto fillers)
Basil – Blissey
Saya – Lucario (named after the main character of Blood+)

I also named my Luxray Flux….

My cousin wanted a Piplup, so I bred him one. As a joke I named it Bubbles. He didn't want it anymore... :(

I am having trouble naming my female Banette. I want to give it a nickname that has something to do with its ability, Frisk. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I didn't used to Nickname my Pokemon, but now I nickname all of them. I usually Nickname them after the names of Greek Gods, but if I can't find a good one for them, I'll Nickname them something funny or something that just jumped into my head.

Examples:

Palkia: Poseidon
Infernape: Vulcan
Fearow: Rakel
Female Rhyperior: Gaia
Gible (It was for a Baby League Tournament): i Bitez u

Zapdos-Big Bird
'Chomp- Dido (Queen of Carthage)

Roselia - Rosie (Kind of obvious...)
Buneary - Fluff (Because it has fluffy white fur all over it)
Pachirisu - Electrie (It's an electric squirrel)

Yeah, I know. My names aren't very original. But, they're good enough for me. :D

I don't really nickname my pokemon, what I do is write their names properly instead of being in all CAPS. I hate the feeling of shouting at my pokemon. So EMPOLEON would be Empoleon and so on.

The only ones I really want to nickname are the shiny pokemon. I have a shiny gyarados that I named Red Dragon for both his appearance and the movie.

Lately, I've been up to winning all the Master Rank Contests in my Pearl, and like all Pokémon I actually use (i.e. not just catch them for the Dex entry and stow them in the Box forever), I set myself out to nickname these Contest Pokémon. They are:

Contest Type - Pokémon (Gender) - Nickname (Origin)
Cool - ;312; Minun (Female) - Negapi (Its French name)
Tough - ;219; Magcargo (Male) - Vulcan (...it's a Fire-type)
Beauty - ;087; Dewgong (Female) - Sirenia (Has something to do with mermaids)
Cute - ;264; Linoone (Male) - Klepto (It doubles as my item thief, with Pickup and Covet)
Smart - ;302; Sableye

I've already beaten the Master Rank Contest with Negapi, Vulcan, and Sirenia, and I'm on my way with Klepto (he's still Normal Rank, but that's just because I'm too lazy to bake Poffins for him). I still haven't got Sableye.

I like my nicknames for Negapi, Sirenia, and Klepto, but not so much Vulcan's, and obviously don't have any for Sableye (not even planned). So if anyone could suggest creative nicknames for my Magcargo and Sableye, please do. =)

Like for example...

Roserade - Vendetta (Ven for short)
Lucario - Nightmare
Phione - Fifi
Empoleon - Kai
Luxuray - Sparax
Staraptor - Valor
Dialga - Diamond (Makes perfect sense, doesn't it?)

Abomasnow - Obamasnow (I swear I've seen this one elsewhere)
You have seen it. I wrote it. =] (I didn't make it up, though.)

I named my dialga "Mangetsu" because I caught him by moonlight.
I named my rayquaza "Beam 13," and does that really need an explanation?
I named my mesprit "Mesprite" because I didn't like the sound of "mesprit."
I named my blaziken "Tashiro" after a character in my writing.
I named my magikarp "Magikarp" so when he evolves, his name won't change. XD Too bad I overwrote that save file.
I named my finneon "Webabawapwap" because it sounds that way. (No, it won't fit in-game, but that's what I call her.)
I named my registeel "Remington" because that was a friend I called Registeel.
I named my milotic "mirror" for no apparent reason.

I named my walrein "I am the"
I named my spoink "SeeHowThey"
I like that song.

Me like nicknames :>. I spent a lot of time coming up with these names :>. But I always give my favorite pokemon a basic name just so she can stand out:

Hannah my Nidoqueen (yeah this one)

Spiric my Lucario (I laughed the first time I tried this name :>. Prounounced the same way as spirit, except with a c)

Good Tool my Garchomp (I don't use Garchomp anymore now that he banned :/. The name comes from the fact that I don't really like Garchomp but I love his stats :>.)

Spoolash my Vaporeon (Couldn't think of anything else :/)

Useless my Nidoking (Yeah I don't even use him, but I nicknamed him anyway. I don't like him.)

Horndornk my Miltank (I don't know what came over me when I thought of this one >>)

I'll just list some of my main Pokes in Pearl as of now:

Female Infernape (Bane) - Well, "Bane" has to do with fire, and it sounded better than the previous nickname I had given an Infernape, which was "Coco" XD Though it does sound kinda monkey-ish

Male Luxray (Sinbad) - Since I first got my Pearl last year, Shinx has always been my first captured Pokemon, and if it winds up male, I nickname it Sinbad. Maybe because of its expression?

Female Bastiodon (Penelope) - Penelope sounds old-fashioned, no? And what is Bastiodon but a Fossilized Pokemon?

Female Western Gastrodon (Mei) - The name is Chinese, though I don't remember all (or any) of its meanings, but it seems to suit the Gastrodon fine. If I get a female Eastern one, it's nicknamed "Lan", which can mean "blue" in Chinese.

Female Mismagius (Fia) - The nickname sounded like "Fear", and for some reason, it sounded kind of mischievous, so I named my Misdreavus Fia ^^

Female Drifblim (Shiva) - Even though I think of the Final Fantasy Shiva, I believe the Indian goddess Shiva (the one with many arms) had some relation to death, so this fits.

I also have a Glaceon, but because he's traded, he doesn't have a nickname...

I have nicknamed almost every pokemon I've ever had! I think I only have two pokemon I haven't given a nickname: Nidorina and Shedinja. I think the main reason that I give my pokemon nicknames is that pokemon without nicknames have these all caps names, which I find quite obnoxious.

Some nicknames I've thought up-
Infernape- Pyre
Empoleon- Tux
Mawile- Tina
Lucario- Gazendarus (I think of the craziest names sometimes!)
Floatzel- Lourkay
Xatu- Xyvix
Glaceon- Echo
Gallade- Ithiet
Umbreon- Lukes
Gloom- Oda
Magikarp- Fiddle (Don't ask, because I don't know)
Raichu- Tryss

I normally don't name them but for some reason I named my Eeveelutions after the 7 deadly sins and 7 cardinal virtues (Yes, I trained 2 of each)

The only ones who don't have a nickname are my eevees one is shiny and the other isn't, I was planning on calling the shiny one "Silvee".

Anyway, I also named my cyndaquil, "Cynders"

I can come up with some truly great names, I just need to be extremely bored.

i.e. T.J. = Turtwig, Silvester = Snowrunt, Mizray = Mantine, Cindar = Charmander. But if/when a Poke evolves it just gets stuck with the same name it had when it started i.e. Plunder = Donphan

In recent years I've taken to either tributing the names to people or characters such as Ike -> Infernape. or having a theme like in FireRed is Greek and Roman Gods such as Apollo -> Charizard, Aries -> Primeape, and Poseidon -> Vaporian and Emerald is based on Hitchhikers guide to the Galaxy [Ford -> Manectric and so on]

Any ideas for a nickname for my Jolly Purugly and my two Jolly Crobat? The Crobat are nicknamed "BAHTMAAHN!" and "BruceWayne" I got bored and named them but now I think they're lame...

Purugly... perhaps Kingpin, if it's male. lolfatcat.

Also, for Crobat, I go with the usual Dracula/Demitri names, though if you want to keep the Batman style, go with DarkKnight.

Also, a few names from my personal compendium.

Torterra - Yggdrasill, enormous world tree from Norse mythology.
Electivire - Maziodyne, ultimate electric ability from SMT gaems.
Gyarados - Blitzkrieg, word of uncertain origin that basically means "rush in and kick azz"
Staraptor - Aerosmith, awesome band.
Bronzong - Tlaloc, god of rain of Aztec mythology. It fits, since according to Zong's dex description, it was revered as a bringer of rain.
Bastiodon - Genspenst, dunno what it means, but I picked it from Super Robot Taisen, and it sounded cool.
Jynx - Izanami, goddess of death of Shinto mythology. Don't ask. Been playing too much P4 lately lolz.

Now... request tiem. Name for male Rapidash INPUT RESPONSE plzkthx

9th January 2009, 1:04 AM
I've been seeing rather disturbing nicknames. Like "Coldf***" on Mamoswines and such.


Anywho, here are some of mine:


Aerodactyl - Terro, meaning Terrodactyl, since that is the animal that Aerodactyl is derived from.
Swellow - Tweety. Obvious.
Cresselia - Luna. Lunar except with out the "r", making it sound more feminine.
Umbreon - Halo, because it looks like it has halos all over it's body.


Also, for the Altaria, I'd say Nimbus, since it's a type of cloud.
Rapidash, I've nicknamed mine Shadowfax, which is the name of a divine horse in The Lord of the Rings.

She uses offensive moves alot,according to the battle I had when I caught her.

I have a Lopunny for cute contests,Samson.
I have a male Buneary named Zoey,who I want to use for cool contests.
I plan to catch a male Buneary and name him Yuri,use him for tough contests.

okay, that did a good job of pissing me off.

Anywho, I named my Rayquayza Titan because its such a badass.
