    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:

    (if there are commas separating nicknames, that means I have multiple Pokemon of that species with those nicknames)

    The Harry Potter Theme
    Alakazam - Hermione (appropriate, since both are really smart)
    Buizel - Ron
    Sneasel - Fred, George, Percy
    Floatzel - Ginny (I'm nicknaming the weasel Pokemon after the Weasleys!)
    Noctowl - Hedwig
    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...)
    Gastrodon - Slughorn (which literally makes sense as well)
    Linoone - Hufflepuff (whose symbol is a badger, which Linoone looks like)
    Seviper - Slytherin, Nagini
    Exploud - Muffliato
    Spinda - Confundus
    Kecleon - Nymphadora (who can change her appearance at will, kind of how Kecleon can)
    Heracross - Skeeter (who can transform into a beetle)
    Vileplume - Fleur (also is French for flower)
    Ariados - Aragog
    Ho-oh - Fawkes
    Duskull - Mad-Eye
    Banette - Lucius, Karkaroff, Severus
    Gible - Draco
    Toxicroak - Bellatrix
    Misdreavus - Voldemort

    The Lord of the Rings theme
    Garchomp - Moria
    Registeel - Mithril
    Giratina - Sauron
    Mewtwo - Saruman
    Dialga - Theoden
    Uxie - Gandalf
    Mesprit - Arwen
    Azelf - Aragorn
    Sableye - Gollum, Smeagol (thankfully they're not in the same game!)
    Cresselia - Galadriel
    Heatran - Balrog
    Grovyle - Legolas (might rename him to Elrond upon evolution)
    Dugtrio - Gimli (who likes caves)
    Spinarak - Shelob (will be more appropriate once she evolves)
    Torterra - Bombadil (too bad the Gold Berry doesn't exist in gen 4)

    The Pokemon Trainer theme
    Wobbuffet - Jessie
    Chimecho - James
    Cacturne - Harley
    Dragonite - Lance
    Beautifly - May
    Torchic - Flannery
    Kadabra - Sabrina
    Venomoth - Koga
    Pikachu - Satoshi (Ash's Japanese name)
    Raichu - Lt. Surge
    Masquerain - Drew
    Kingdra - Misty (could have named her Clair, but that name was taken by my Xatu for different reasons)
    Geodude - Roxanne
    Wormadam Steel - Jasmine
    Spiritomb - Agatha
    Meganium - Erika

    Miscellaneous Nicknames
    Gallade - MetaKnight, Arthur (might rename the second to Lancelot)
    Gardevoir - Guinevere (she and Arthur were hatched at the same time)
    Piplup - Dedede (will be more appropriate once he evolves)
    Arcanine - Lassie, Rigel
    Ditto - Nympho (because I use it mainly for breeding)
    Palkia - SuperDildo
    Rotom - Robomaster
    Metang - Ferrum (Latin for iron)
    Delibird - Mrs. Claus, Santa
    Honchkrow - Raven
    Mismagius - Maleficent
    Electrode - Pokeball
    Magnezone - UFO
    Espeon - Akamaru
    Umbreon - Black Cat
    Roserade - TuxedoMask (from Sailor Moon)
    Pachirisu - Nutella
    Spinda - Po (from Kung Fu Panda, though if I catch more Spindas I might name them TinkyWinky, Dipsy, and La-La)
    Cresselia - Izanami (Japanese moon goddess)
    Lunatone - Kwan Yin (Chinese moon goddess)
    Mightyena - Artemis (Greek moon goddess)
    Ninetales - Naruto
    Blastoise - Bowser
    Marowak - Dry Bones
    Cranidos - Yoshi
    Tentacruel - Kraken
    Medicham - Mahatma
    Milotic - Dreamboat

    Skitty - Neko-chan
    Gyarados - RAGE, Serpentina
    Mankey - Goku
    Machoke - Vegeta
    Sudowoodo - Charlatan
    Wailord - Moby ****
    Nuzleaf - Pinocchio
    Ludicolo - Mojito
    Weezing - Smogon
    Gible - Stitch
    Porygon-Z - Linux
    Uxie - Zelda
    Mesprit - Ganondorf
    Azelf - Link

    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:

    Eevee: Eeep
    Vaporeon: Veep
    Jolteon: Jeep
    Flareon: Feep
    Espeon: Peep (b/c Eevee already took Eeep)
    Umbreon: Beep (b/c its Japanese name starts w/ a B)
    Leafeon: Leep
    Glaceon: Geep
    <-- I drew this. Do NOT take.

    I nickname the Pokemon that I will potentially be using for my team.

    In Diamond:
    CHAR Infernape
    AQUOS Gastrodon (male--would've been Aqua or Aquas if it was a girl)
    RYO Lucario
    DRAKE Garchomp (which is misleading because it's a female)
    ROSE Roserade
    SKAR Skarmory

    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 named my Dunsparce ANNOYGEEK. I go with the "~GEEK" theme in allcaps for Pokemon I'll use competitively. Also, my Torterra is called Tortimer.
    My signature used to be huge and obnoxious but I toned it down eventually!

    I have Ruby, Sapphire, Platinum, SoulSilver and White. I also used to have Silver and Crystal and Yellow but I lost them Also, I can offer Pokérus in a trade if you need any.

    I just named my shiny eevee (which BTW I'm going to evolve it into an espeon)"Use Da Force"
    *Battle Starts*
    "Go! Use Da Force!"

    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! (Started by SapphireL)

    I have always thought nicknaming to be stupid and never did that. though there was a time in Emerald when I named my rayquazza after myself.

    I nickname all of my pokemon. I usually nickname them based on what they look like or what the pokedex information says.

    I'm not creative enough for nicknames
    I use "uber" Pokemon, I calculate stat values, I breed my way to perfection, and I care about natures. I catch my pokemon and throw them away like a piece of garbage if they are not worthy of my greatness, and I treat them like brainless drones instead of individuals. If you use this philosophy, copy and paste this into your signature. (Started by Swalot=yes)
