i usually name my Pokemon after Greek gods
<Pure awesomenessI've finally realized the meaning of all pokemon
but I'm not gonna tell
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
Rayo the Zapdos
Cansado the Snorlax
Fuego the Moltres
Hielo the Articuno
Lengua the Lickilicky
Leroy the Aerodactyl
Florence the Feraligatr
Jerome the Meganium
Vern the Venusaur
Pablo the Torterra
Santiago the Torterra
Don't be discouraged.
Normally i only name last stage evos or pokemon i really like and after almost anything; gods, places, movie charries, etc...
Flygon- Altair/ Beau
even named a celebi; Thyme(a herb) cos its a grass type n travels time
Still trying to name a female dragonair but cant think of anything...

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.
But i rarely name them

I caught a Ninoran male for my HG trade box ( so I have one at the start) and I named him Nidoregiem.
My Palkia's name is phil
My diagla's name is Bob
My Giratina-O is Earl
Music is like delicious candy, when you're done, you throw away the rappers.
I claimed Meta Ridley!!!
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.
Please stop complaining about Pikachu losing to "weak" Pokemon at the start of each new region. Its power is drained at the start of each new region, and anyway, it's equally bad storytelling for Pikachu to plow through all of its opponents.
I nickname all pokemon that I EV train/otherwise use. ^__^
...So, I have LOTs of nicknamed ones. I name things after just about anything, whatever I feel like, really.
Blissey - Ovary
Vaporeon - MermaidMan
Donphan - Zou
Ditto (Jolly natured) - Jolly=)
Empoleon (female) - Big Sis
Shiny Staraptor - Svend (7th one in the chain)
Salamence - Masuda (Got him while attempting Masuda method)
Jolteon - Sora
Skarmory - PaperCrane
Drapion - Diazepam
Lapras - Bird Flu (One of my first pokemon to get pokerus.. and still has it.)
Charizard - SubOrdinry (his IVs are beyond ordinary, but in the wrong direction...)
Linoone - Mrs.Clause
Infernape - DateRape
Ninjask - Kock-Block
...Yeah... Don't ask. XD

I accept nothing less than perfection from my pokemon and treat them like the inanimate objects that they are. ...But I do love inanimate objects. ^__^;
Note: I do accept RNG requests. Just be aware that since I give my all of my pokemon/RNG services for free, it will be entirely on MY terms. Keep that in mind and take it as you will.
I'll name my pokemon
- Greek/roman gods
-their name backwards
We're nothing more than concreteness victims trapped into our limits
Blind beliefs that lead us: "Trust in what we can perceive with senses".
Thousands minds that reflect our tendency to flatten layers of knowledge,
demonstrating that we're just wasting our time.
Look above us, sky is just a fragment and shows us how we're nothing more than ants.
Human weakness is what we hide, overwhelming celebration of our fault .
Entwined with our fears of being in your hands, we're deaf to the universe that guides us.
How can we enhance our thin perception of every small wonder hiding behind simple shapes?
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
What do you know--I have a Castform named Weatherman as well!Originally Posted by godudette
I nickname all my Pokemon, of course. I've done themed nicknames for some of my Pokemon, but the rest I just pick whatever name is appropriate or sounds cool. I have a few current nickname themes I kind of strive for:

Uxie - Dumbledore
Azelf - Dobby
Purugly - Minerva
Absol - Remus, Sirius (Sirius has a Serious nature! Was going to give that name to a Mightyena, but all my Mightyenas are female...)

Linoone - Hufflepuff (whose symbol is a badger, which Linoone looks like)

I give all of mine names. Sometimes I use names that symbolize something about them, but other times I like to use a play-on words.
The stupidest names I ever came up with is an inside joke w/ a friend of mine. We have a theme for our eevees:
Espeon: Peep (b/c Eevee already took Eeep)
Umbreon: Beep (b/c its Japanese name starts w/ a B)
<-- I drew this. Do NOT take.
I used to name my pokemon after food on my first first game ahah
now i only nickname my HM slaves mean things.
I has Wifi!
Let's battle yah?
FC: 3910 8673 3309
I nickname the Pokemon that I will potentially be using for my team.
AQUOS Gastrodon (male--would've been Aqua or Aquas if it was a girl)
DRAKE Garchomp (which is misleading because it's a female)
Though they're generic (minus Gastrodon's--oddly, I'm most attached to Gastrodon out of all of those Pokemon). The rest of my team were traded and have their original names.
Which is why I make it a point to make my Pokemon's nicknames in ALL CAPS. It blends in better with other members of the team.
Sadly I'm really boring and don't name my Pokes anything. *sigh*

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)
