    I think nicknames are sort of stupid, the only pokemon I nicknamed was my Giratina, but it's cool. I named it Deathrow, and it looks really intimidating when it comes out of a dusk ball.

    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: 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!

    I never nicknamed my pokemon before but I started to nickname them anyway.
    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

    "There are no coincidences in this world."

    "There is only the inevitable"

    On indefinite hiatus. May come back in a week or two.

    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.

    Close your eyes,
    Believe and make a wish...

    My Metagross is named after my current naming spree from SotC. I call it after number 14, Cenobia.

    The fact that both look like pseudo-dogs makes it better. I plan to call Yanmega Avion.


    I reject your Nyancats and replace it with my own.

    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.
