Thread: Nickname types?

  1. #1

    Default Nickname types?

    This was something I had considered. Whenever I do nicknames I make them specific so I wanted to know who else does it. Just say what the nicknames are and what they are named after.

    For example here is mine:

    Pluto / Seviper
    Venus / Milotic
    Jupiter / Sceptile
    Saturn / Salamence
    Mercury / Lanturn
    Neptune / Gyarados



    This is my Emerald team and I nicknamed them after the planets

    I normally give my Pokemon Japanese nicknames. In past games I would name them all after characters in anime like Inuyasha or Wolf's Rain, etc. In my current Emerald game I have only three Pokemon, nicknamed the following:

    Razan - Combusken
    Narihiro - Grovyle
    Momoko - Marshtomp

    I'm just going for random Japanese names that aren't really found in any anime series. That way, at least to me, it makes my Pokemon seem more original than if they were actually named after another character. X3

    I named my Eveelutions by the first part of their name. Does that count? o.O

    Vaporeon: Vapor
    Flareon: Flare
    Espeon: ESP... and so on.

    I had a friend who named them after characters from FMA. I named myself in the game after Hayate from the manga Hayate Cross Blade.

    And any sort of nickname counts

    Usually I don't go for types, but on the challenge me and my friend are doing I have:

    All names must consist of four letters
    All names must end in RO.

    So far, Toro = Combusken, Xoro = Dustox, Ziro = Crobat, Coro = Lombre, Arro = Aron, and the Wynaut egg will be Wyro/Auro.

    Okay, best nickname for:

    WURMPLE

    First five members choose names, next five vote on the best, and then someone decide on a new Pokémon.

    Wurmple = Plero

    Not really, I just give them random names. For example I named my Treecko (Now sceptile) iPod.

    I don't usually give my Pokémon nicknames, though I recently named my Poocheyena Hattie (Name of my cousins dog).
    What signature? | My future Firered No Arms team. | Below are my first and future 4th Gen team (Diamond).
    (other three Pokemon to be announced)
    I don't use "uber" Pokemon, I don't calculate stat values, I don't use cheating devices, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature.(Started by Tyranitar)

    I often do traniner to pokemon themes like in R I did Flamin (feamle sign) then Flamin PKMN Charmander and in S I did Mario with a Skeptile named Yoshi.

    I also do a lot of Japnese names like my Articuno is Korasuru (not sure if thats the spelling) means frozen and My Espon's name is Shinu wich means killer.

    Greeks are cool, I think I made the names match.

    Aphrodite- Goddess of love and beauty
    Hermes- Flying messanger of the gods
    Zeus- God of gods that throws lightning bolts
    Hades- Lord of the underworld
    Hercules- You should know...

    Ninetales - Anya / Illis (latter name from a Pokemon fanfic)
    Groudon - Vulcan (Roman god of the forge)

    I generally go for names that somehow relate to the Pokémon, but aren't cliché like "Charcoal" for a Charmander or something. (Okay, admittedly bad example.)

    Manectric - Arcturus (I don't remember where I've heard this, but 'Arc' makes me think of the way electricity moves. ((Shrugs.)))
    Charizard - Dante (This isn't actually my idea, rather my 'Big Sister,'s', as it's the name of her Charmander in our fic, but it's so perfect. Obviously named for "Dante's Inferno")
    Altaria - Gladiaria (This comes from Sakurazaki Setsuna's Pactio title in Negima, this time in reference to her wings, which I associate with little Chiru-chan.)
    Metagross - Aegis (Named for a shield from some folklore or another, I don't really remember. Anyway, it's a strong substance/shield, and that's basically what Metagross is.)
    Absol - Nosferatu (I've seen this name used in a variety of ways, all of them referencing dark/evil magic, thus Absol or Umbreon gets it.)
    Scyther - Masamune (Refers to a famous sword-smith from Japan, as well as to his swords, it's an obvious choice for Scyther.)
    Pidgeot - Celsius (Taken originally from the airship in Final Fantasy X-2, it refers to a type of cloud, perfect for Flying-types.)

    I guess I'll post more once I get around to remembering them...
