    I nickname every single one of my pokemon. Of course, I have some paterns;
    I always name my starters after colors (Charizard = Red, Empoleon = Blue, Torrtera = Vert, Chicorita = Olive, Cyndaquil = Ruby, Squirtle = Indigo... the list goes on, and on, and on...). Since G/S, I've always named my Togepi Mini, but I think I might start naming them Chibi, which is Jappenese for Mini. In diamond, I named my Luxray Yang, after my cat, but now I simply name all my Umbreon Yang. Other than that, I either name my pokemon after people they remind me of (Such as my Quagsire and Medicham named after my Mom and Dad), or simple names that suit them (Such as my Drifblim, Float Away, or my Rotom, Raikiri (In case you couldn't tell, he's Spin forme. Raikiri is Thunder Blade in, again, Jappenese).
    "Open your mouth too wide, and your ears close."

    Do you wish you could do things like in the anime?
    Do you wish you could dodge behind a rock to avoid an attack?
    Do you wish that you could use the arena to stop your opponents cold?
    If you answered yes to any of those questions, the Pokemon Anime Style Battling League could be for you!

    I decided to nickname my haunter I was training up.
    Once I had my friend evolve it, (Gengar RULES!!!)
    I nicknamed it Wraith. It means ghost, or apparition, etc.
    Wraith to me means a spirit that eternally walks the line between life and death,
    I drummed that into my head from an old GBA game I used to play.

    I always nickname any Cyndaquil I ever get Hino. Togekiss is Kissari, Empoleon is Touru, Roserade is Rossu, a Flaffy I'm training is Mari, and many more.

    Those are just the ones I remember at the moment. Japanese-related 'nicks ftw. |D

    I was playing platinum with a 5-year when i caught a Cherubi. I asked him what i should nickname it and his reply was "2Cherry." For some reason, despite it being really simple, i love the name...

    I usually come up with my own names.

    Typhlosion-Azona
    Gallade-Bane
    Lucario-Storm
    Scizor-RedZone
    Umbreon-Diablo
    Espeon-Angel

    Just a few examples.

    I either give my pokemon human names I like, or call them something related. I have a Farfetch'd named Leekspin.

    I only nickname my Shinies. I cant think of a name for Staraptor, tho ive considered some for a while.
    “The God of the old Testament is arguably the most unpleasant character in all fiction: jealous and proud of it; petty, unjust, unforgiving, control freak; a vindictive, bloodthirsty, ethnic cleanser; a misogynistic, homophobic, racist, infanticidal, genocidal, filicidal, pestilential, megalomaniacal, sadomasochistic, capriciously malevolent bully. Those of us schooled from infancy in his ways can become desensitized to their horror."

    I tend to nickname all of my Pokemon, but I put more effort into the nicknames for the Pokemon I use for battle.

    I even go as far as looking in the dictionary, pet name websites, and using Spanish words to name them. lol Sometimes I give them human names too.

    Some of my favorites from the pet sites/dictionary:
    Lotus the Lucario
    Tempest the Lucario
    Zhi the Infernape
    Baron the Empoleon
    Anvil the Metagross
    Bullet the Metagross
    Guava the Garchomp
    Ghost the Salamence


    Spanish:
    Rayo the Zapdos
    Cansado the Snorlax
    Fuego the Moltres
    Hielo the Articuno
    Lengua the Lickilicky


    Human names:
    Leroy the Aerodactyl
    Florence the Feraligatr
    Jerome the Meganium
    Vern the Venusaur
    Pablo the Torterra
    Santiago the Torterra
    Alpha SapphireL

    Usually something random, like "cake" or "cheese"

    I used to name pretty much everything "Mama Luigi" and "Robotnik", but I've strayed away from that.

    I have left Serebii for greener pastures. These pastures, to be specific.

    Female Lucario - Lucy (because she was a girl and it's a short version x3.)
    Male Empoleon - Emperor.
    Female Lopunny - CottonTail (I was a fan of Beatrix Potter as a child.)
    Female Tyranitar - Terra (Latin for Earth.)
    Female Absol - Siren (Sirens warn people of oncoming disasters or a current disaster that is happening. So do Absol.)
    Male Jolteon - Shock (Electric things will shock you if you are not careful with them.)
    Male Flygon - Apollo (because he lives in a sunny dessert, and his wings sound musical when they flap.)
    Female Vaporeon - Waves (just Waves.)
    Gallade - Susceptor (Latin for Guardian.)
    Female Meowth - Surripio (it means 'to pilfer' in Latin. And Meowths are known to Pilfer money by night, when she evolves, I'll think of another name.)
    Male Meganium - Bliss (because I like that feeling and I like Meganium.)
    Female Gible - Inculta (Latin for desert.)
    Female Kangaskhan - Matron (because of Motherly instinct is connected to that.)
    Male Glaceon - Algeo (Latin for 'to be cold')
    Male Flareon - Valor (Fire God.)
    Female Umbreon - Lunar (means moon)
    Male Espeon - Solar (means the sun.)
    Male Leafeon - Syn (As in Photosynthesis.)
    Female Dragonair - Haruka (Japanese for 'far away' as it's very hard to see a Dratini/Dragonair up close.)
    Female Aerodactyl - Fumi (Japanese for 'History.' As we all know, we can Aerodactyl in the games by reviving them from fossils.)
    Female Lapras - Mizuko (Japanese for 'Water Child.' As I raised this Lapras from an egg, I found it fitting)
    Female Manectric - Procella (Latin for 'Tempest or Storm.' I imagine Manectric like that.)
    Strong Pokemon, weak Pokemon, this is only the selfish perception of people. Good trainers will try to win with the Pokemon they love best.

    I think my Remoraid's nickname is perfect for it. I call it Aaroniero because to me, Remoraid represents Aaroniero's Kaien disguise, while Octillery is the perfect embodiment of his Resurreccion. I also named my Kingler Barragan. Crown-like horns, oversized weapon, and "King" in the name - I mean, do the math!

    Of course, not everyone is as much of a Bleachtard as I am.

    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.

    I don't normally nickname my Pokemon. The only time I nickname is if I'm creating a Johto team only.

    I have so much fun thinking up nicknames.

    In my first Platinum run through I got two words from their PokeDex entries and put them together. Eg. Tropius=Fruiteat

    Then in my second Platinum run through their nicknames were based off of karate moves such as Gaidan and Burai.

    Then in my third and current Platinum run through they have all been nicknamed after a word or similar word from their PokeDex entries with a gender specific title based off their gender. Eg. Turtwig=Sir Twigs, Rampardos=Mr. Bash, Gengar=Ms. Spite, Gliscor=Ms. Barb
