I've never really nicknamed my Pokemon before I got D/P, but I think it's kinda cool. It gives your Pokemon a bit more personality.

This thread is for posting your opinions on nicknames, your Pokemons' nicknames, and to get advice on nicknaming your own.

Don't forget to keep things appropriate.;)

Nicknames are always fun for me. most of the times I use the japanese names of the pokemon and sometimes I just use random japanese words.

For some reason, I always seem to name my flying type pokemon of my team "Suzaku" Idk why, I just like it.

Every single one of my Pokemon are nicknamed, except for the ones I obtained in trades. :3

My favorites nicknames include:
Owen the Torterra
Tweezer the Staraptor
Koheret the Wormadam
Bo the Vaporeon
Tokine the Gastrodon
Ilita the Manectric

(Man, alphasyther, the Poke Card..... four of those Pokemon are from my main team. :3 )

I used to nickname all my pokemon in Silver, but now I only name my starters and sometimes my EV trained ones. It's kind of a waste of time...

If you can call a P-Z 'KKK-Man', then what would you call a Registeel? http://209.85.48.9/10579/54/emo/smileh.png

Haha. I named my gyarados garydos.
Why? I'll never know......

Back in the 3rd gen i didn't name my pokemon. I cant remember why i started doing it this gen but i enjoy the process.

In no particular order:

Muk: The Muk--Just because Muk is such an awesome name.

Torkoal: Asher--an appropriate name for what it does

Medicham: Godhand--Self-explanatory

Empoleon: Bonaparte--Sounds cool and fits perfectly.

Driftblim: Goodyear--my friend helped me with this one. Goodyear has been pretty good to me too.

Magnezone: Thundadome--Me and my friends where talking about Mad Max one day and the rest is history

Gallade: Sir Gawain-- If you studied British Literature then you don't need to read this....It's from a story called "Sir Gawain and the Green Knight" that's part of the Arthurian legend. (King Arthur) he represents both characters of course.

Weavile: Shifty--i know this awesome Halo player that goes by the name of Shifty....sounded cool so i stole it.

Hippowdon: QuakerOats--Awesome x10. He was the last of my stable to get a nick. My friend suggested Quaker...i then said "no. Quaker Oats!"

Staraptor: Rawk Hawk-- He will RAWWWWKKK you! (especially after i re-breed him) If you haven't caught on by now, i took the name from Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door.

Froslass: Yuki--it begged for a Japanese name so it got one....the first part of its own JP name.

Dusknoir: Grimy-- Instead of going sinister, i decided to go a bit cute. i think it suits him fine.

Magmortar: Piros: If there was one pokemon i could name..it would be him...i can't pronounce Magmortar to save my life. anyway...because of the stigma that surrounds poor Piros, I named him after a character from the .hack series who no one likes. This character is also big and hideous.

Leafeon: Digitalius-- Ah now i remember why i named my pokemon...it was because of this awesome name i thought up. Its the scientific name for plants or flowers. However the spelling is taken from a ship called the "B-1A" from R-type Final.

Now your probably wondering (or not), "hey, Gardevoir Avatar, Gardevoir sig...where the Gardevoir?" Well, the one i use is my awesome one from emerald so i never named it. besides....Whats a better name than Gardevoir?

Jet/Yanmega: She's fast! lol Like a jet!

Guava/Garchomp: Yay! I like this name for her. :3

Hickory/Staraptor: And I think that suits him well...

Acuzio/Armaldo: It means 'sharp' and Armaldo has sharp claws... lol

Zhi/Infernape: I can't remember exactly what this name means. It's the name for some sort of flower. I dunno. I think it suits her too. :P

Florence/Feraligatr: :D Very nice for her imo.

Anvil/Metagross: Seems logical.

Squishles/Wigglytuff: ...I dunno where that came from, to be honest. :X

Flareon - Ifrit
Glaceon - Shiva
Jolteon - Ramuh
Vaporeon - Leviathan
Espeon - Carbuncle
Umbreon - Fenrir

I always like nicknaming mine because then they become less pure numbers and more something I can take pride in if I raise them right.

I do normally name my team members, but, for some reason I never got around to it. Mine are as follows, and might need the added explanation.

Infernape is Capsam (from the capuchin monkey and flame, the S bridges the two pieces)
Skuntank is Arophit (from aroma and mephitidae, the family skunks come from)
Hippowdon is Barrpota (from barren and hippopotamus)
Abomasnow is Izzree (from blizzard and tree)
Floatzel is Seamus (from sea and mustelidae the family otters come from. I do pronounce it Shay-mus, though)
Drifblim is Zepph (from zeppelin and haunt)

Heh, pretty cool...a friend of a friend named all of her eevee squad after Greek gods. Carbuncle is great for espeon.....as for fenrir for umbereon.....coulda gone with Ark (dark summon i believe....fenrir is earth/wind....though he could be dark in FF11...) or better yet Atomos. (atomos is actually very fitting considering what a conventinal Umbreon does)

My current team was the very first team that I actually put deep though into their nicknames.

Pikachu = Aiko (Little loved one. My first shiny, and it was a girl too. It's way too cute.)
Hitmontop = Beyblade (How could I NOT name it this?)
Jirachi = Jirachi in katakana. Yeah, not really a nickname...but I wanted a Japanese Jirachi because I hated the English game's "JIRACHI".
Ambipom = Toshiyuki (Means alert and happy. Describes Ambipom pretty well, I think.)
Togekiss = Tenten (Named after my favourite Naruto character. Means here and there. XD)
Phione = Kaiyou (Dual meaning: ocean and forgiveness. I like it.)

My nicks are all stupid.

Torterra/AWESOME - Because Torterra's awesome.
Skarmory/Skarlord - Because I always thought of Skarmory as a lord and the names seems...fitting.
Raichu/CherryTart - Um...just because.
Luxray/Singa - Named after 'lion' in Malay. Huh.
Empoleon/Pentar - I just wanted something that started with 'pen'.
Lucario/Anubidog - Lucario *somewhat* resembles Anubis, and it's a dog thing.
Charizard/Wargreymon - Ummmm...
Porygon/Hacker - Because...
Graveler/RUMBLEPIE - I was thinking what to add at the end of 'rumble'.
Golem/Goloske - Because it's cute. :>
Floatzel/HMSLAVE - I'm unoriginal.
Venusaur/Saur - Because I can't think of a better name. :<
Blastoise/Kamechan - Again, because it's cute. :>
Dodrio/Dodoske - I'm a sucker for PokeSpe's nicknames.
Mantine/Mantaro - Yes?
Swampert/Zuzu - See above
Garchomp/Chompy - It sounds cute. I'm a sucker for cute names, too.

I have lots more...but whatever. A lot of them have PokeSpe nicks, so I won't bother.

I ALWAYS nickname my Pokemon. I don't see why you wouldn't. It gives that certain Pokemon its very own personality, so its not just like every other one you'd find in the wild. IMHO, I think that giving a Pokemon a nickname means that you're really serious about using it, especially if its a good nickname.

For instance, my umbreon is Rhiannon, for the Fleetwood Mac song ("She is like a cat in the dark and then she is the darkness")

I only nickname my Competitive Pokemon. here are some of them:
Gengar: Axel/Crysis. Now if anyone has battled me, Axel is quite Famous. She has had massive game time, and since Gengar is my Fav, I decided to nick her with my favorite name. Crysis is my newer Gengar [Axel's Daughter, yes i do refer to them as a family, lol] and a CRUD load stronger.
Swampert: Mudslide. Self-Explanitory: Mud + Water = Mudslide.
Charizard: Atlas. Powerful name for a powerful poke. OHKOed a Mewtwo with Dragon Pulse.
Ninjask: Demon. A nasty little sucker.
Absol: Chaos. Kinda explanitory. Only shows up in the Anime when there is a disaster.
Alakazam: Deception. Y? He wears the trickster set. Tricking his item to lock them into a Stat upping move, then wipes them out. Fun.

Those are my Favorites. I have a lot more, but they are the best.

I nickname all of my Pokemon... :X I'll just list a few...

Santiago/Torterra: My starter. I dunno why I decided to name him that, but I think that name sounds cool...

Diego/Torterra: This is Santiago's son. Diego is my lv.100 Torterra. I don't really have a reason why I gave him this name either...

Hungry Bob/Swampert: No comment...

Alpha/Uxie: The first pixie I caught.

Beta/Azelf: The second pixie I caught.

Gamma/Mesprit: The third pixie I caught.

Tempest/Lucario: I thought it was a cool name for him...

Carbon/Weavile: It's also kinda random... but she is a Dark Pokemon... and carbon is dark...? lol

Jet/Yanmega: She's fast! lol Like a jet!

Guava/Garchomp: Yay! I like this name for her. :3

Hickory/Staraptor: And I think that suits him well...

Acuzio/Armaldo: It means 'sharp' and Armaldo has sharp claws... lol

Zhi/Infernape: I can't remember exactly what this name means. It's the name for some sort of flower. I dunno. I think it suits her too. :P

Florence/Feraligatr: :D Very nice for her imo.

Anvil/Metagross: Seems logical.

Squishles/Wigglytuff: ...I dunno where that came from, to be honest. :X

WAAAAH!! I didn't even notice your Lucario's name!!!! I was kinda skimming through... heh heh...

Honestly, though, I'm not lying!! I nicknamed my Dialga Tempest before I had even HEARD of Serebii!!

Well... I guess great minds think alike! :D

I nickname them according to their element and after the Organization XIII members(from Kingdom Hearts II).
Examples are the following:
Infernape-Axel
Staraptor-Xaldin

I try to nickname my Pokemon meaningfully. It also gives them personalities.

I'll give you some examples from across my games.

Pocchama--female--Orihime (Orihime is NOT a Bleach reference. It means "crown princess")
Diaruga--Ryuuzaki (Ryuu is dragon, and Ryuuzaki is another name for Death Note's L. <3)
Infernape--male--Dante (Dante Alighieri penned the Inferno)
Giratina--Requiem (A requiem is a song they sing for you when you die)
Solrock--Soleil (Soleil is French for sun)
Rayquaza--Kazekage (Means "wind shadow")
Lombre--male--Hombre (Hombre is Spanish for "man", but it sounds like Lombre.)
Luxray--male--Tybalt (This particular Luxray has a quick tempered characteristic)
Wingull--male--Jonathan (there's a book called Jonathan Livingston Seagull)

Trust me, the list goes on and on.

But I love nicknaming Pokemon. :3 It's fun.

For me, nicknaming is somewhat of a compulsion; I'll name every single Pokemon I catch, whether I caught it for a team member or simply to get my 60 critters for the Sevii Islands. For some reason I feel as if I'm devaluing its pixelly little life if I don't. However, it tends to be rather a better name if I anticipate having to look at it at all after I ship it off to a box. I get them by mashing random letter together until they sound good. Seriously. Sometimes they'll have a logical root, but I'll almost always add a little touch of nonsense.

Some I remember off the top of my head:

Vulpix - Pixie (I had never seen a Pokemon game when I was about eight, so my cousin took pity on me and caught me a Vulpix (my favorite from the anime) and let me use his Silver in a Tamagotchi-like fashion)
Torchic - Fireblaze (my first Pokemon on one of my own games- original, huh?)
Swellow - Cheep (my second Pokemon on one of my own games)
Vulpix - Valentine (you can guess what day she hatched)
Houndoom - Cerberus (or Cerbi, as I like to call him)
Swellow - Nesubii
Jolteon - Lithean
Luxray - Magnega
Leafeon - Jazere
Pidgeot - Chibi (don't ask)
Marshtomp - Mayakon
Azumarill - Riri
Ampharos - Meep
Nidoking - Riolen
Mesprit - Yuna
Azelf - Rikku
Uxie - Paine (the only one stupidly unfitting to YRP)

These are some of the better ones, too.

I never give any nicknames to my Pokemon until Diamond, I usually have a hard time thinking of a suitable name so I just based them on other videogame characters.

Altaria - Myrrh (Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones)
Girafarig - Iris (Gyakuten Saiban 3)
Lapras - Pearly (Gyakuten Saiban 3)
Ampharos - Amphy (Jasmin's Ampharos in G/S/C)

I name my Pokémon from different themes with every game.

Crystal: Look away while pressing random letters and see if you get something pronounceable.

Graveler: Hoxwhin
Sneasel: Kvacdo
Typhlosion: Kuowee (I accidentally hit End, but when I got to Goldenrod, I had gotten used to the name)

And a couple others that I can't remember... It was too long ago...

FireRed: Enemies from other games

Venusaur: Amazy (shiny flower from Paper Mario, too bad my Venusaur isn't shiny)
Raichu: Chuchu (electric blob of jelly from Zelda)
Wigglytuff: Crazee (singing flower from Paper Mario)
Dodrio: Kargaroc (bird from Zelda)
Arcanine: Chomp (dog from Mario)
Seadra: Blooper (squid from Mario)

Emerald: Something that sounds kinda good :P

Skarmory: Silver
Alakazam: Zviris
Sceptile: Esmeralda
Torkoal: Flameshell
Sharpedo: Cyorg (which is a Zelda enemy)
Manectric: Tralect

XD: Names after the Pokémon characteristics

Espeon: Aurorasun (aurora and sun. Duh)
Walrein: Iciber (icicle and blubber)
Flygon: Streamfly (stream and fly)
Houndoom: Fireshadow (fire and shadow)
Breloom: Shromene (a girlified shroom, yes, it's female)
Electabuzz: Zaprong (I didn't really have a choice)

Diamond: Something with their color

Torterra: Limian (Turtwig's lime color)
Honchcrow: Blacra (Black. Pure coincidence that the other part actually sounds like craw)
Clefable: Pinpech (pink and peach)
Manaphy: Azuli (Azure)
Rampardos: Cobolker (Cobolt)
Medicham: Greynol (Grey)


Yeah, that'd be it ;)

nicknames are stupid no offense

Why? Don't you have a nickname, something people call you?

IMO it's awesome to be able to change nicknames. It's more diverse; all pokémon caught by me have nicknames, some better, some worse. Those which were hard to catch are named "Ahole". You can guess why.

I don't nickname my Pokemon, but if I did I would name an Electivire something like Blitzkreig, because of its somewhat fast and powerful sweeping capabilities, and in German Blitzkreig means, Lightning War...My nicknames are far and few between but sometimes when a friend asks what to name soomething I come up with a cool name...

I only give nicknames to those that I actually raise properly, here are a few of mine -

METAGROSS- ADAMANTINE
Unbreakable/an extremely hard substance, befitting for Metagross I thought;3

MAGNEZONE- Magnestorm
Just 'Magnetic' and 'storm'. Well I liked it;P

GYARADOS- Chaostorm
Like above, just a combination of two words, 'Chaos' and 'storm'.

SCIZOR- Ragnarok
So called because Scizor's sleek red body reminded me of the Ragnarok from FF8...

TOGEKISS- halcyon
'halcyon' basically means 'Peaceful, Gentle, and Calm' which I found perfect for Togekiss' nature:]
It also happens to be a bird from Greek Myth.

LINOONE- Wet Willie
Um, this was never ment to sound 'rude' or anything:p
I called him so because he is a Water themed Linoone, caught in a Dive Ball and knows Surf, Thunder, Icy Wind, and Rain Dance.
Novelty, but one of my favourites regardless;3

I don't usually nickname Pokemon, but if I do I only either take their name of all caps or change it to their Japanese name if I like the Japanese one better.

My nicknames can be original...or very stupid.

Empoleon - Emperor
Staraptor - Emo Slave (Whenever I send it into battle, people laugh :p )
Roserade - Roze
Scizor - Blade

I also nickname all my shinies so:

Luxio - Zatch (Colors remind me of Zatch Bell *shot for liking Zatch Bell*)
Farfetch'd - PWN Duck *shot*
Absol - Ruby
Jynx - Sweetums (._.; )
Cubone - Olive (really like this for a shiny Cubone)
Floatzel - Zabuza (=D?)
Drifloon - Helium
Gallade - Grimmjow (Friend suggested since we are huge Bleach fans)
Smeargle - Artemisia (Named after a female painter)
Illumise - Jill (So when I get Volbeat, it will be Jack. XP)
Mime Jr. - Bozo (*shot*)
Aggron - Ulquiorra (Aggrons' head looks like Ulquiorra's mask from Bleach)
Magnezone - Magnetix (XP)
Combusken - Vulcan (friend suggested)

I know, my nicknames suck badly. D:

I try to use appropriate or meaningful nicknames for my crew:

Placeholder name: Anonymous
half the pokemon I bring around with me are named as such

Recurring names: names I bring forward with every generation.
Ninetales - Carla (I always had my faithful Ninetales with me since Silver)
Squirtle Family - Terra Pin (bad pun), Gilkame (boss from FF5)
Starmie - Dethstar/Deathstar or other such variants (I had this guy with me since Emerald)
Charmander family - Errol (named for CPL Nobb's dragon and mini-mascot of the Ankh Morpork Watch)

Meaningful names: names that have a significance to the pokemon species, a meme, or their role in battle.

Ludicolo (female): Brocollee (a pun and a nutrition injoke - there are girls calling themselves Candy, but Brocolli is healthier.)
Ludicolo (mindgame Focus Punch variant): Ludifalcon (Falcon as in Falcon Punch = Focus Punch)
Charizard: Friedliche (references the dragon Caro Lu Lushe calls upon in StrikerS)

I'd never use something so terminally unfancy as a Pokemon named after its own species. I tend to combine real names with some word related to what the Pokemon is or does. Hence Joulie the Electivire, Peater the Swampert, Augustus Scizor, Micah the Regirock, and so on.

My Ursaring is a grizzly Adams. I have a Swellow who also uses Guts/Facade to good effect, her name is Eve.

Anita is my Breloom, named for amanita, a poison mushroom.

My Porygon-Z is Missingno. A glitchy Pokemon named after a Pokemon glitch.

My Medicham is Marsha, my Machamp is Art. Marsha Art, Fighting-types.

Gorebyss uses Barrier and Amnesia, Baton Passes to Ninjask. Ninjask throws up a Substitute, uses Swords Dance, and stalls for a couple turns to let Speed Boost do its thing. Ninjask Baton Passes stat boosts to a sweeper. The Gorebyss is Hans, the Ninjask is Franz. They're here to pump somebody up.

Butterfree is named Colonel Oil, Miltank is m00ber, Skarmory is RobotCHIKN, Magnezone is Roswell.

Aerodactyl is Airfinger. That's what Aerodactyl means.

Gliscor is Bella, named for Bela Lugosi, the actor who played Dracula in the old films.

My shinies are Ghlowst the Dusknoir, Specteral the Gengar, Floresnail the Magcargo, and Dynamond the Electrike.

Torterra Male: Territoise - I found it on Wikipedia when the english names weren't officially revealed. convenient, huhn?

Gallade Male: Gladiator - gallade's kinda based on one.
Milotic Female: Aquarius - it's my star sign, and because of the 'aqua'

Umbreon ;197; - Taliana [Inspired from a series of paintings]
Snorlax ;143; - Bibi Fat [I like this one, haha!]
Leafeon ;470; - Night ~ [I'm sure Leafeon's cry sounds pretty at night]
Glaceon ;471; - Day ~ [I dunno why I named it Day ~. I just made it up as the opposite of my Leafeon's nickname]

Aren't they cute? Ahihih! :D
