    Here's the nicknames for the most recent NU competitive team I made:

    Probopass - Pubestache
    Xatu - Totem Pole
    Gastrodon - SillyPutty
    Plusle - Eloise ♥
    Pidgeot - Big Berd
    Slaking - Blah...

    I don't really like the nickname that I gave Xatu though. Any suggestions?

    I'm trying to figure out a good nickname to a Shiny Timid Jolteon with HP ICE
    I have a good Shiny Timid Eevee who will become a Jolteon with HP GRASS nicknamed 'Gigajolt'.
    What would be a good nickname for Gigajolt brother or sister with HP ICE?

    In this Generation, I started using some nicknames because the new Pokemon is easy to give some cute nicknames, imo.

    Shinx (Male)- Shieki
    Pachirisu (Female)- Iroha
    Turtwig (Male)- Ecoro
    Buneary (Female)- Udonge(from Touhou)

    I think that's it. That's my only team so far because I just started playing Diamond hahahaha..
    Current Rank: <Marsh Trainer>

    5th Generation? OH YES.

    As of now, my focus is on Safaris with starters (barring Wartortle and Quilladin), but give me your Safari anyway. Chances are I'll find something interesting.

    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?
    PBR Code:1634 4340 1580 Platinum FC: 3309 4310 0833
    So I think differently...Who cares?
    <-Yup, sounds about right to me...I think.

    Oh, awesome! So I'm not the only one to name practically all of my Pokemon after Japanese words! (Romanji) :33
    I also name them after important things like holidays, seasons, and characters from various anime series.

    I nickname all pichu, pikachu, and raichu a variant of the nickname Sparky which I nicknamed my first Pikachu. I also nickname almost all Torchic, Combusken, and Blaziken Flame after my first starter in Ruby version. All Luxray are named Lux.

    Oh yeah, any suggestions for nicknaming a Gligar? Thanks for any ideas.

    I usually give nicknames to my pokemon.
    70% of the Serebii population uses ultra powerful legendaries (also known as ubers)
    in their teams. If you are one of the 30% that thinks outside the box
    and doesn't use ubers, copy and paste this into your signature!
    99% of people think Staraptor is better than Pidgeot. If you think Pidgeot is better put this in your signature (Started by Bossk)

    I used to hate nicknames, now I think they're awesome.

    So, current Black team(already beat the game):
    Serperior: Contrarily(even though it doesn't have contrary)
    Weezing: WeeZINGA!
    Roserade: Fragrant
    Bouffalant: Buffalord
    Porygon-Z: Gl!tc&heD
    Alomomola: Say Whut?
    I have discovered what a signature is.

    This is Bidoof. Many people loathe it with their lives. If you are of the few people who love this little beaver, put this in your sig. Started by Warrior Scolipede

    I've claimed Castform. It will never rain on my parade.

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

    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

    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?
