I also nickname my Pokémon with suitable nicknames, sometimes...

Pidgeot - Airborne (Loves the air)

Squirtle - Squirt (You can figure it out)

Bulbasaur - Vince (I think it had something to do with "Vain" but not sure how I got that one)

Goldeen - Rio (Spanish for "River")

Drifloon - Loom (A loom is used to weave and Drifloon's feet sometimes get tangled)

Mudkip - Pudkip (My friend made it up. Mix between "pudding" and "Mudkip")

Ponyta - Louie/Lucy (I have 2 horses named Louie and Lucy)

Infernape- Pyro (Self-Explanatory)

Gyarados- Storm (Also Self-Explanatory)

Mismagius- Mystery (Would've been better if it was female...)

Leafeon- Link (He kinda reminds me of Link.)

Sometimes when I'm nicknaming Pokemon, I'll just ask people around me to make a noise or to tell me a name. I've gotten some weird results in the past.

~ Yukishii
16th January 2009, 10:42 AM
I've always nicknamed my Pokemon since B/R/Y.. I don't know why, I just like to give my Pokemon a personality.

Uxie ; Delilah
Mesprit ; SugarRush
Shiny Azelf ; SuperEpic [This one was funny.. 'Super' is because it sort of has a Superman color coordination to it, and Epic because of how amazing the Lake Trio's battle theme is.]
Gardevoir ; Cyco [Instead of spelling it Psycho]
Meganium ; ShyBeam
Mew ; Tricky.

That's my DP team..
I do actually have another Mesprit and Uxie that I traded from Diamond to Pearl..
The two are shiny.. which were obtained by SRing.
I nicknamed them Simon [Uxie] and Redlight [Mesprit].

17th January 2009, 8:33 AM
I gave the nickname Masaru for a Regigigas. It's because of the main character from the manga Sugoiyo! Masaru-san.

But anything with the word "Sun" would be considered.

Thanks in advance. ^.^

I always nickname my pokemon. If I can't think of one from a feature that they have, I give them really weird names. For instance, (this is an inside joke w/ a friend of mine) when I first evolved Feep into a Flareon, my friend thought that was the stupidest name ever. However, as a joke, she asked if she should name her Jolteon "Jeep" and I said that it was a good idea. So now, that's what we do w/ the eevolutoions:

Eevee: Eeep
Vaporeon: Veep
Jolteon: Jeep
Flareon: Feep
Umbreon: Beep (because of its Japanese name)
Espeon: Peep (because Eevee already has Eeep)
Glaceon: Geep
Leafeon: Leep.

Lopunny (female) = Reisen (Based off of character with the same name (who happens to be a bunny girl... from the moon) from the shump series Touhou)
Palkia = Orochi (Too much Warriors Orochi will do this to ya)
Blissy (female) = Da Ji (Also from too much Warriors Orochi)

I guess this is the nicknaming thread for all Games, so here are my nicknames so far in my Scramble challenge in ruby.:
Airosi, it's my character, a boy.
Tickle, my male Treecko.
Percifull (had to call it Percifull in my Scramble Challenge), my male Breloom.
Magissa, my female Slugma.

I'm going to catch a Baltoy, Giraferig and Pikachu too, anyone know nicknames for them?

My schizophrenic Emerald team. I don't remember why most of them are named that, except a friend told me to name the Wingull Echo (after I vetoed his first suggestion of Boobs) and Misdreavus is such a scene queen.

Blaziken sucks, though. He needs a new name.

I don't own the game yet, but I'm honestly thinking of nicknaming my Piplup, Pingu (after a character from a children's show). Plus, when it evolves, it'd be even funnier to see something as intimediating as Empoleon with the name of Pingu.

:D

I try to give a nickname to all my pokemon, if I can think of one. Usually once I think of a nickname that I really like, I use it in all my games so I don't have to think of more, haha. I even try to give nicknames to different genders, too. Here's some of the nicknames I've given to my pokemon:

Male Venusaur: Apollo
Male Charizard: Hephaestus
Female Charizard: Cotopaxi
Male Blastoise: Poseidon
Female Blastoise: Baikal
Female Meganium: Magnolia
Male Feraligatr: Neptune
Male Typhlosion: Vulcan
Female Sceptile: Salix
Male Torterra: Geb
Togetic: Tick-Tock (I don't know why xD)
Male Raichu: Thor
Female Raichu: Sparky
Female Pikachu transfered from Leaf: Ciar
Female Rapidash: Razzle
Lickitung: Sabroso/Sabrosa depending on the gender. It makes me giggle... they both mean "tasty" in Spanish XD
Female Victreebel: Bella
Male Magmar: Vesuvius
Nidoqueen: Queenie
Female Lapras: Aruba
Male Scyther: Blade (creative, I know)
Articuno: Icili
Zapdos: Zadero
Female Pelliper: Pela
Chansey: Lucky (also very creative :rolleyes:)
Male Kadabra: Houdini
Female Linoone: Zeega
Male Linoone: Ziggy
Female Xatu: Cassandra

There's a bunch more that I can't think of right now. I'm also going to try to name all of my shinies in Pearl after food items. My first shiny in it (Doduo) reminds me of a kiwi and I thought it'd be cool to have my shinies have a common nickname theme. :P

I've nicknamed Pokemon since I started playing~

I used to name my Pokemon after manga and game characters I liked, but I don't do that often anymore, with my ToS2 Eevee army being an exception.

Now I name them things that sound nice, and use those names to help come up with names for my original characters, like Shiyaa and Virys.

As a side note, some of my names are really weird. I've got a Wormadam named Mamfelk.....>_>;

I got a Pokemon off a friend, and I really want to nickname it, however because it's traded I can't. But if I was to trade it back to this friend, would he be able to nickname it on his game as he was the one who got it?

In any generation, be it 2nd, 3rd or 4th, i nicknamed my Typhlosion ''Kakamber''. No idea why, but it ran circles around my friend's teams (again, in any generation), and i like the idea of retroness. I usually nickname my team from the names of the teams in the manga, eg in FireRed i'd have Saur, Poli and Pika, in LeafGreen i'd have Turtley, Jiggly, and Blu. In diamond i hav Roo, beh, etc...

Here's something interesting my friend did with nicknames.

She took part of the Pokemon's name, added a 'y' to it, then added the word bum. Example for her Squirtle- "Squirtybum". She did this with every Pokemon, and some of them were rather interesting...

I sign that, nicknames are so much fun and makes your pokémon more personally. It's boring in Wi-Fi run into many ordinary and very same Lucario, it would be much interesting and fun, if people nickname their pokémon more :).
And for Azelf... "Winkle". From words "will" and "tinkle". Azelf's cry is kinda tinkle and it's a will pokémon...

Some new ones from me..~

Phanpy/Donphan - Sokeri (it's finnish and means sugar)
Mamoswine- Manmoo (from it's japanese name and little edited)
Pachirisu - Spatch (from cute words "swatch" and "patch")
Togekiss - Jubiplane (from words "jubilee" and "plane", since it looks like a aeroplane)
Wailord - Darling (Wailord is super cute and loveable)
Gengar - Buuh
Mismagius - Boo
Dusknoir - Buu
Miltank - Cawwy (it's from Harvest Moon: Wonderfull Life-game, where your son ask you to "cawwy?" = carry. And the game is about farming, it suits well for Miltank)
Chatot - Doremi (do re mi fa so la di do ♫)
Corsola - Lucky (Corsola is so cute)
Pikachu - Chuu
Chimecho - Belly (since Chingling is bell and both Chingling or Chimecho don't have a belly - only head, I thouht it would be nice name)
Golduck - Daisy (if it was a boy, it would be named to Donald)
Staraptor - Tinny (again, it's a mix from two words "tiny" and "ninny", cause Starly looks like a crybaby)
Mantyke/Mantine - Manta Kite (the first part is naturally from "manta ray" and the second part I made up from Mantykes species name "Kite Pokémon. This's the one of my top favourite names I've made up.)
Gyarados - My Love (it's cute and water type, so it's my love)
Tangrowth - Tangy (not creative one)
Magmortar - F*** (heh, from word "duck" and "flame", duck because bulbapedias origin text...:D)
Porygon-Z - Dizzy (Porygon-Z surely looks a bit dizzy and Porygon made some people kinda dizzy...)
Buneary - Lil' Bunny
Cherrim - Agentti (it's finnish and means "agent", I really don't know what I was thinking, when I named this...)
Remoraid - Chips (From fish and chips...)
Tentacruel - Cruelly (from words "cruel" and "jelly")

I only nickname pokemon that I use in battle.

In the order in which I obtained them:

Champ, Gyakusatsu, Shisa, Powerhouse, Shoryuashi, Fenrir, Dragonfly, Shoryuken, Dood, VeeDub, Justice, and Khafra.

I know I didn't include what they are; that just adds to the mystery. Some of them are easy to figure out; others can be kind of tough (Dragonfly isn't what you think it is). There's also Pidgey2, a Pidgeotto I used in FR to fly around Kanto, Billy H., a Magcargo I use to help hatch eggs (Billy Hatcher, never played the game but it's the only reference to egg hatching in a game I could think of), and of course various pokemon named Slave who are either numbered, lettered, or given card symbols (heart, diamond, spade, club) depending on what region they're from (numbers from Kanto, letters from Hoenn, and cards from Sinnoh). I did used to name my Dittos... SLow UpTown (figure out the code! :D)... But now I name them after whatever nature they are and a number 1-6, each number representing a possible IV of 31 (1 being a 31 in HP, 2 being in Attack, 3 Defense, 4 Special Attack, 5 Special Defense, and 6 Speed).

I plan on nicknaming whatever perfect Kanto and Johto starters I breed, but I don't know what I'll call them. I also plan on breeding Eevees and naming the various eeveelutions after Norse gods.

17th March 2009, 5:08 PM
I nickname all of my Pokémon. As a rule every nickname starts with the same level as the Pokémon's name.
Sometimes it is hard for example if you breed twenty piplups you run out of names with p at some times, although I sometimes create new names.
To every rule there is an exception too though so for specific Pokemon I have a set name that is not according to above's rules.

I started nicknaming Pokés in Silver, but then I didnt nicknamed then after their first letter but after musicians I like XD
(only first names though- so they were called Neil or francis or Marian etc XD)

I also nickname legends as far as I can- that fashion I only applied since emerald though- although mostly they keep their original meaning of the name- only lower cases or a slight variation of the name then.
Since I have a German version of Pokémon my pokémon's names first letter starts obviously with the first letter of the German name.

Here an example for some of my Pokémon:

Impoleon- Piet
Glalie- syd
Crobat-bats
Zubat- batty :p
Weavile : shaun
Steelix - Sterling
Staraptor- Steffen
(other before have been called feodor or fjodor )
Luxray -Sean
My cranidos (does anybody want one :P?)
Keagan, Kevin, Kalle, Kurt, Kade, Keith, Kuno
omanites:P: Argon,Amor,Armin,Adrian, Amonite
Adi, Amon.
Rhyperior - Rick
Mudkip: Hägar
Hippowdon: Sioxyd
Nidoran- Needow
Mr. Mime - Peterson
Roserade- Knut
Exploud- Kol
Chaneira- Charlene
Teddursa- Theo
Numel- Charlie
Eeveelutions:

eevee -eevee
vaporeon-Enii
Jolteon-Enis
Flareon-Ewan
Leafeon- Eugen
Glaceon-Einar
Espeon-Erik
Umbreon-Endo

Can I get some feedback on a nickname for my Magmortar? Please, PLEASE, I don't want things like "Burny", "Fire", "Magma" or obvious nicknames like those. Right now, he's called "Ague" (a tropical febrile condition), but I don't think it's got enough power. I like naming my pokémon with foreign words. For example, my Ralts is named "Soleil" (French for sun) and my Vaporeon is named "Maelstrom" (Norwegian word for strong whirpools), but not in Japanese. I don't have anything against Japanese, but I only use words from languages I speak or that are found in languages I speak (like maelstrom, e.g.).

Can I get some original feedback, please?

Well technically this is for Platinum, but whatever, it's not important.

So, I've got these two pokemon in Platinum, a Staryu named Darren and a Chinchou named Oscar. I just named them the first things I could think of, as opposed to my other pokemon, whose nicknames are all somewhat significant (in that same game, I've also got the male and female Mawiles Me and Stalin (they're married, Robot Chicken ftw), and a Nosepass named Ganmen (yay Gurren Laggan)), but I'd like to give them different nicknames. Any suggestions?

EDIT: Nevermind on Darren; I thought up a better nickname for him. I'd still like a better one for Oscar, though.

My Pokemon's nicknames are references to places and figures in Norse Mythology. My Empoleon, for example, is named Hvergelmir. Located in Niflheim, Hvergelmir is the most ancient well, all the cold rivers of the world originate from it.

Any ideas for an Octillery and a Dunsparce? I like names that are clever and funny or reference pop culture.

the names i remember now are:
liny the blaziken cuz it was my nickname in 6th grade
starlight the starly cuz i was listening to that song when I caught it.
flap the pidgeot- i was just thinking of the sounds that animals make and flap came out.
bell the venusaur- i was saying bulbasaur and suddenly i said bellbasaur so i decide to cut it
amigo the charizard- I´m from mexico and i decided to name it like that because it was my first pokemon ever and i felt like it was a friend
chop the shiny machop- I call it like that because it is a female and machop sounds like male so i cut off the "ma"
mishu the sroomish and now a breeloom i tought mushroom but mishu sounds better.
dead the duskull- because of that song.
there´s a lot more but i can´t remember

I give my Pokémon always strange names. At LG, I named Zapdos Fawkes, Articuno Midas and Moltres Suigin. Also Mewtwo is Callista. Every Torchic at Sapphire gets named Tweety for some odd reason. I also named Kyogre Origin. At Diamond I have many odd names. Uxie is Cinnamon, Azelf is Ruby and Mesprit is Lucky. Heatran got named Xemnas... With legendaries, I use this method: when I start throwing balls at them, I say one name aloud. The name I said when they got caught is the name then. This led to that at my new LG save Articuno and Moltres got both named Phantasy... My Gyarados got named Magius when I caught it. Every male Abra I catch is Abba. I breeded a lot of Rattatas, and they got named Fail, Fail 2, and so on... Eevees I name by the type what they are gonna be. Glaceon is Freeze, Umbreon and Espeon are Yami and Hikari, and so on.

Haha I usually did not nickname before but now when I for instance play emerald and nickname the pokemon I play with, I find they have a lot more personality. Also when I transfer them to diamond to restart (I do this for TMs et cetera), it is more fun to catch Numi the camerupt than mightyena the mightyena if you get it...
Also, for pokemon that I struggled with cathcing, the ones you spend 2+ pokeballs on, I call rude names like d*ickface and so on. I laughed when I caught d*ckface the pelipper in pal park haha :D

Male Gengar - Doc (Punch Out, have a Hitmonchan named Little Mac.)

I end my stuff in Leag, after reading the manga where everything had a common ending. I may use the numbers or symbols as well to designate teams. No use letting the symbols go unused, non?

TortLeag, StarLeag (the Staraptor, not Starmie), BronLeag, to name a few. It helps if there is an L somewhere early in the pokemon's name, like Kecleon. KecLeag. I may have to find some other methods though, as some pokemon this won't be a cinch with.

Occasionally, I give pokemon good non-personal names, like Dark Moon for Umbreon, SeaWea for Floatzel (the Sea Weasel), Leaf Blade or something for Sceptile.

My nicknames of Pokemon relate to them in some way, and are never in English. Every Poison Pokemon is named as if it were Italian. I use Greek, Latin, German, and sometimes French words. My Weezing on Emerald was Velenmorte(Poisonous Death), the one on Diamond Velenista(Poisoner). Drapion on Diamond Velenpunte(Poison Spikes). The Dustox on Emerald was Velenali(Poison Wings), the one on Diamond Malveleno(Evil Poison). Blaziken on Emerald was Ignidor.(Gift of fire, mixed Latin and Greek words). Prinplup on Platinum is named Sideroleon(Greek word sideros for iron)...

Could you trade it back to him and have him rename it? Unless, of course, you like the name?



:) Dumb, I know haha.

Nah, they sound cool. :)


I got a question, if anyone wouldn't mind answering.
Is it considered rude to give a Pokemon an all caps nickname? Like, nicknaming my Pikatchu "PEKACHO" instead of "Pekacho"?

Also... eheh, if anyone has a name suggestion for two female Rocket OCs, I would appreciate it.

If you trade it back, the OT (original trainer) can't rename it; because it was traded. The name is permanent. Sorry >_>

Infernape - Thame (I was thinking of the song, 'Through The Fire and Flames' at the time, so I connected 'through' and 'flame' and came up with Thame.)
Palkia - William (Haha, yeah, I explained that I was lame, right?)
Bibarel - Dennis (Beaver/beaver like animals remind me of the name Dennis. I have no idea why.)
Roserade - Thorne (Again, I'm totally lame. I didn't realize my Roserade was a boy until after a while, and the realization struck that I had just named my poor Roserade a girly name. So I decided that Thorne would be his nickname. His real name is Thornton. XD)

I only nickname them when I can come up with something clever... or something memorable. These do not include the ones I got in in-game trades.

Charizard from FR: Blaze, later changed to Silanah (bonus points to anyone who gets the reference for the change)
My shiny Charizard: Anomander, after a favorite characters from the "Malazan Book of the Fallen" series. The character can turn into a black dragon.
(first electric Pokemon, used to be Raichu and now Luxray): Sparky
Moltres: Firestorm
Muk: Biohazard
Tangela: Ramen (that was rather random, but I see a resemblance...)
Octillery: Nu (named for a friend whose favorite animal is the octopus)
Another Pikachu: Tesla
Luvdisc: Valentine
Chatot: Polly (parrot...)
Ponyta: Firehoof
Staraptor: Merlin/-a (depending on gender)
Pidgeot: Tobias (after an Animorphs character... that was so long ago)
Ursaring: Rachel (see above about childhood Animorphs love)
Bibarel: Craig (inside joke with friend)
Krabby: Cancer
Female Houndoom: Isil (this is a joke-- "isil" is the Elvish word for "moon")
Male Houndoom: Telcontar (means "strider" or "walker" in Elvish, named for Aragorn who I adore, and also for his long legs.)
Vulpix: Donna. (Doctor Who reference, because Donna Noble is amazing. Fiery and red-haired/furred.)

That's all I can think of, off the top of my head.

If you trade it back, the OT (original trainer) can't rename it; because it was traded. The name is permanent. Sorry >_>

I Love giving my pokemon nicknames, It helps me figure out their personality :3 And I can usually get more attached to them if they have a nickname.

In Platinum (First copy)

Vivica the Ninetales (Female)
Skoll the Lucario (Male)
Shiva the Vaporeon (Male)
Aya the Froslass (Female.. Duh)
Bree the Breloom (Female)

Brook the Floatzel (Female)
Lilac the Leafeon (Female)

Settie the Shaymin (name is short for Poinsettia. And although genderless, I see her as a female)
Katrina the Absol (Female)
Zai the Rampardos (Male)
Sequoia the Stunky (Male)
Aria the Sableye (Female)
Nevermore the Murkrow (Male)

Ren the Espeon (Male)
Kiki the Glaceon (Female)
Destiny the Misdreavus (Female)
Cosmo the Dragonair (Male)
Medici the Nidorino (Male)

I nickname every single pok&#233;mon I catch. I'll just go through my main teams, though:

Diamond:

Luxray: Clayton
I used to call my electric pok&#233;mon Sparky. Clayton is named after Adam Clayton from U2, who had the nickname Sparky. Clayton is also the name of my Magneton in Sapphire.

Golem: Geode (I don't think that needs explaining)

Staraptor: Tegan
I needed to think of a female name, and, as I was obsessed with Doctor Who at the time, this stuck. Staraptor's hair kind of matches hers, coincidentally.

Rapidash: Santuzza
Again, needed another female name. This one comes from the opera La Cavalleria Rusticana. I don't know why. EDIT - Now I remember. It's from the 'Cavalleria' part - which, as you can probably guess, means cavalry (i.e. horseback). There's a method to my madness, at least most of the time.

Empoleon: Beppe
Sort of taken from the 'Napoleon' reference in its name. Two of the main players in the Italian resurgence (which was around the same time as Napoleon's rule - well, some time after his defeat, but hey-ho) were named Giuseppe - Mazzini and Garibaldi. I shortened it down to Beppe and the name seemed to suit him.

Abomasnow: Yuki
After the Japanese names for Snover and Abomasnow.

Pearl:

Growlithe: Flame
The nickname for every growlithe I own. To be changed to Flike when I get HG/SS

Garchomp: Gary
Derived from its English name

Walrein: Celia
Because finding a decent name from its final evolution is nearly impossible, so I nicked it from its second stage instead.

Noctowl: Yorun
After its Japanese name. A long-standing tradition since I played my rather badly translated gold version, where only the first five letters of the name came up. Therefore, every time a noctowl appeared, the meesage would be, "Wild YORUN appear!"

Breloom: Loom
I was feeling lazy when I caught shroomish on Emerald. I couldn't rename it once I'd transfered it, so it had to stay that way.

Magnezone: Magnus
Again, taken from its English name, but I quite like the nickname as well.

Vespiquen: Vespa

Honchkrow: HONCHKROW (wi-fi traded, can't rename)

Blastoise: Jet
Tradition from Blue that I carried on throughout the games

Dratini: Tini
Uninspired derivation of its English name, will hopefully find something better and change it.

Yanmega: Mega
See Dratini

Infernape: Fernando
Taken from 'fer', for fire. Also starts ABBA songs playing in my head every time he's sent out.

Was that over-explaining things?

MissFrederick
11th October 2009, 3:32 PM

I name all of the pokemon that I keep because I feel it gives them an identity.

My first elite 4 team, and currently my most well trained team are as follows

Ohjiro - Male Empoleon (named for the Japanese word for "prince)
Bluebi - Female Altaria (named after the first Altaria i owned in my R/S/E games)
Fell - Male Houndoom (named for the fact Houndoom are based off of hellhounds)
Sparks - Female Pikachu (shortened version of "Sparky", which I named all my Pikachu until I found out an NPC contest pikachu had the same name)
Ruca - Male Lucario (short version of it's name somewhat, named after a video game character)
Naupaka - Female Tropius (named after a tropical flower native to Hawaii)

my reserve pokemon whom I contemplated over using in my Elite 4 team before choosing the above team are as follows

Kimba - Male Luxray (named after Kimba the white lion)
Tempest - Female Rapidash (named for the name I frequently use to name horses I own in video games)
Jitsu - Male Machoke (named for the Japanese word for "art of")
Ran - Female Roselia (named for the Japanese word for orchid)
Flander - Male Mamoswine (named after for some reason my head associated snow with the word "flanders", not sure why)
Terra - Female Steelix (named for the latin word for earth)

I have about at least 4 boxes filled with Pokemon, all with nicknames, but I can't remember them all right now.

some pokemon species I will always or almost always give them the same name in different games, others I give them unique names.

some names that I constantly use include

male charmander - Charmer (it's what I named my first charmander ever, and I will continue to name them this)
pidgey - Pidge
male growlithe - Hachi
spearow - Syd
ghost type pokemon - Casper
pikachu - Sparks or Sparky
cubone - Aiko
ponyta - Tempest
female swablu - Bluebi
first dragon type or dragon-like pokemon I catch - Ryu
shroomish - Enoki
murkrow - Karasu


there are various others but those are the first that come to mind.

For me, most of my Pokemon's nicknames are either combinations of Japanese words, shortened versions of Japanese words or other foreign words that are read in english.

For example, the Heracross (A female with a Gentle nature) I recently caught is named Katomu, which is a shortened version of Kabutomushi, or Rhinoceros Beetle. My other ones are as follows.

Akiki - Monferno - Intended meaning is "Fall Energy".
Shirobame - Staravia - Intended Menaing is "White Sparrow" (That is not it unfortunately)
Hikari - Budew - "Light"
Aoiki - Pachirisu - Intended meaning is "Blue Energy".
Kitora - Luxio - Intended meaning is "Energy Tiger"
Kigahen - Gastly - Intended meaning is "Insane Ghost".
Usagi - Buneary - Self-explanatory, its "Bunny" or "Rabbit".
Itai - Psyduck - "Ouch".
Kenchi - Geodude - Intended Meaning is "Fist Blood".
Hidaimyo - Ponyta - Intended meaning is "Fire Emperor".
Gotsui - Cranidos - "Tough" or "Hard" as is strength.
Tekken - Machop - "Strong Fist".
Byoki - Gligar - "Sick".
Umi - Buizel - "Ocean" or "Sea".
Testu - Bronzor - "Metal"
Mahou - Kadabra - "Magic".
Chiko - Togepi - Shortened from "Chisaiko" or "Small Child".

The only other one is a German name I got from a Sherlock Translator.

Frucht - Cherubi - Fruit

The other ones are not named with Foreign Language words.

Wiser - Hoothoot
Plasmite - Rotom
Pythonia - Onix
Kuriki - Kricketune (Was going to be Japanese, but did not know the japanese name for a cricket)
Slime - Shellos


There you go, what do you think?

Well, I just restarted Pearl and I'm trying a Nuzlocke Challenge on it. Meaning that I have to nickname all my Pokemon. Not that I mind--I enjoy nicknaming my Pokemon anyway! Here are the nicknames I gave all my Pokemon so far (I have 2 badges), both dead and alive:

Prinplup: Kaiser
Starly: Hawkeye
Staravia: Sterling
Bibarel: Biff
Roselia: Maurice
Crobat: Alice
Geodude: Rockette*
Geodude: Pebbles*
Geodude: Grenada*
Geodude: Dynamite
Buizel: Mikau*
Floatzel: Mikau II
Ponyta: Shadowfax
Ponyta: Bad Horse
Gastly: Spookster*
Gastly: Boogeyman
Psyduck: Paula*
Cherubi: Haruka*
Pikachu: Cheeks
Lopunny: Thumper
Blissey: Nursey
Gyarados: Princess
Kricketune: Eve
Drifloon: Dreamwave

* The ones with the asterisks after their names are dead. I miss them already... And I'm running out of nicknames for female Geodudes, since all four Geodudes I caught so far have been female. I'm hoping the next one I catch is male... Same thing goes for any more Buizels or Floatzels I catch, so I can name them Mikau III, Mikau IV, etc. XD

Nick names should be based of their color or shape or type.

I need help nicknaming a phione

For the Phione, I'd go with Driappe or Trailei (Drip or Trail [as in trail of water]). It's your choice, though.

But I love nicknaming Pokemon: I've done it from Emerald. Here's my final team and explainations...

Empoleon: Tsunami: Obvious.
Crobat: Nuada: In Divine By Mistake, Nuada was the leader of a race of bat-like demons, mainly identified by their vampiric personality and batlike wings.
Buizel: Taylowa: It seemed a very Buizel-y sort of name.
Pachirisu: Misao: In homage of the manga character who is most like me (albeit without the prophecy thing).
Medicham: Chen: It seems a very kung-fu sort of name.
Rapidash: Kagami: In a story I'm writing, Kagami is the main character's horse.

I've always loved nicknaming my Pokemon. While I didn't really do it in BW, I nicknamed everyone except legendaries in DPPt.

My nicknames for my current Diamond team;

Titon (M - Torterra) : The pun was not intentional, by the way; I accidentally misspelled it, but left it as is once I noticed the play on words XD

Uri (M - Staraptor) : Uri means 'my light, my flame' though I don't recall why exactly I gave him this name. Ah, well; it's fitting, at least.

Nyxsiren (F - Luxray) : Nyxsiren (I pronounce that Nix-ser-en) is the name of a member on a site I used to frequently visit. I liked the name, so I nicknamed my Luxray it. Also, Nyx is generally known as the 'goddess of night', and Sirens are creatures in Greek mythology that lured sailors with their beautiful voices to the rocks to sink their ships and drown the crews.

Miami (F - Floatzel) : Miami is a city in Florida; pretty self-explanatory there.

Kyo (M - Medicham) : Kyo is a character in the anime/manga Fruits Basket who is known for liking martial arts.

Vendetta (F - Weavile) : A vendetta is a blood feud or bitter quarrel. Quite fitting for a Weavile, right?
