    Thumbs up Rate Your Nicknames! (Need raters!)

    Edit: I'm only one person and can't possibly rate everyone's alone! (I made this thread months ago, went back to college, check the forum weeks later to find it still alive with tons of requests!) I'd appreciate it if everyone made an effort to rate someone else's too.

    Edit: DO NOT LIST DOZENS OF NAMES TO BE RATED!! @w@

    I think Pokemon's nicknames are all too under-rated! (Pun not intended...) Nicknaming your Pokemon makes them more personal and less like objects or monsters. Since I started playing when I was 10 I've named my Pokemon and have ever since for the past 10 years. EVERY Pokemon gets a nickname in my games! What about you? How do you name yours?

    Here I'll rate your Pokemon's nicknames based on fitness (how well it fits the specific Pokemon), creativity, uniqueness (avoidance of cliches), overall theme (Ex: Frank, Bob and Xavier, the latter doesn't go well), look (how the actual name looks) and flow (how it sounds).

    So a Sandshrew named "Timber" would rate higher than one named "Sandy".

    Feel free to share your thoughts on other's names too! Chime in!

    Make sure to mention the Pokemon, name and gender, and any other notes.
    Remember this is just for fun, no hard feelings! I encourage others to rate eachothers.

    Here are my teams and their names for you to judge:

    Platinum

    Togekiss - Fable (M)
    Dragonite - Ophelia (F)
    Dusknoir - Lenore (F)
    Torterra - Albion (M)

    Crobat - Yazoo (M)
    Luxray - Katana (F)
    Milotic - Atlantis (F)
    Hypno - Banquo (M)
    Rapidash - Yahrling (F)

    Ruby
    Groudon - Ganondorf
    Absol - Sickle (F)
    Gardevoir - Larz (M)
    Walrein - Trusk (F)
    Sceptile - Link (M)
    Salamence - Inji (F)

    Yellow "Assume all (F)"

    These are too similar to their original names, in most cases only a letter or two different.


    Porygod - 1/10, too similar to its name!
    Blisstol - 3/10 "tol" is too sharp compared to the soft "bliss". Good attempt though.
    Stuntler - 3/10 Too similar to the name. The "Stunt" is a good start.
    Killceon - 2/10 Unsure how to pronounce it (hard or soft "c"?) Similar to its original name, but doesn't fit the Pokemon well.
    Snorlord - 5/10 I like this one, it fits a Snorlax well!
    Togitol - 8/10 I like this one a lot too. Creative/unique looking and sounding, and even though its similar to its name, it works.

    Overall 3/10

    PuckerUp - The flow is great, cute and catchy, but it doesn't "look" appealing. If the U was lowercase it would, but I like it! So 9.5/10
    Mirage - Awesome name, fits great! 10/10
    PopGoesMe! - Cute name, but wouldn't work as a irl, or if you were a trainer in the anime. I give it a 4/10.
    Eclipse - Another great, perfect nickname. 10/10
    DaveyJones! - I think a hyphen between it would work better then the "!", I get the reference though! 7/10
    Mr.Topiary - Topiary by itself would be great, the "Mr." ruins it a little. Other than that: 7/10

    ^^ Overall 6/10

    What's important is if you like the names, of course.

    Wow you sure like the letter "y" don't ya?

    Induyte - Strange name for a Gyarados, but very unique. 6/10
    Permyet - Good solid name, but missing something... 6/10
    Reveynant - Not very good flow, but again, creative. 5/10
    Kyelle - Great name for an Espeon! Looks awesome. 10/10
    Ayero - another great, simple nickname. 10/10

    Ayero and Kyelle are the best!

    Meh...I'll give it a try too ^^

    Party 1 - Main Party
    Absol - Moonblade - M
    Scizor - Ironcut - M
    Roserade - Leafpoint - M
    Gyarados - Seafang - M
    Dragonite - Bellydon - M
    Infernape - Flarie - M

    Reinforcement Members
    Mismagius - Gemini - F
    Aerodactyl - RokiRoki - M
    Luxray - Raikirion - M
    Staraptor - Falco - M
    Snorlax - YummyTummy - M
    Froslass - Lulu - F

    -------------

    That's it.

    I myself think that Infernapes name is bit too femaleish name, but...I don't like the sound of Flareape, so...

    If you have some suggestions (for example to Infernape) go ahead and say it. ^^

    You can't have a forum without Zinnie, eh?

    Eh, might as well:

    FR Team:
    ---------------
    Butterfree - Champ
    Gyarados - Gyakusatsu
    Electabuzz - Powerhouse
    Arcanine - Shisa

    'Champ' only because he beat the Kanto Champ for me in every conceivable way; I traded him over to LG and had him battle Gary's final pokemon, each one being different.

    E Team:
    --------------
    Blaziken - Shoryuashi
    Mightyena - Fenrir
    Walrein - Dragonfly

    D Team:
    -------------
    Infernape - Shoryuken
    Torterra - Vee-dub
    Empoleon - Dood
    Staraptor - Justice
    Luxray - Khafra

    'Justice' because I used Staraptor in the majority of my battles with Team Galactic, and he was the one pokemon to take down every single Galactic leader in the game.

    P Team:
    ------------
    Porygon - Bit 64
    Gengar - Egregore
    Metagross - Hovercomp
    Spiritomb - Shi 108
    Sableye - Glitterimp
    Misdreavus - Lansy

    Pt Team:
    ------------
    Mawile - Me
    Mawile - Stalin
    Staryu - Darren
    Chinchou - Oscar
    Nosepass - Ganmen

    Not sure where I came up with the names for Staryu and Chinchou; those'll probably change eventually. The 'Me' and 'Stalin' thing is a Robot Chicken reference.
    A New Beginning...

    Champ - 10/10 You named it because of its vigor, I like that! XD Good name, could have more too it, but considering how special it is, I think it works great.
    Gyakusatsu - 6/10 "Gyaku" alone would be great, the "satsu" after it is too much.
    Powerhouse - 1/10 Not a nickname, more of a term to describe it, especially because "power" and "house" are two different words. Doesn't work at all and I think worthy of a much better name.
    Shisa - 7/0 Add more after it and it would be a 10. (It's a girl right?)

    Shoryuashi - 5/10 Falls in the same trap as Gyarados. Too wordy for such a long name. Splitting it up would be better. I like how creative you're being though.
    Fenrir - 10/10 A recognizable, good nickname that is still unique. Fits it well!
    Dragonfly - 1/10 How does this work? XD

    Shoryuken - 7.5/10 Not too bad, too many syllables though for a nickname.
    Vee-dub - 1.5/10 Just doesn't fit this Pokemon well. Looks odd and flows odd too.
    Dood - 1/10 Doesn't fit this noble Pokemon. It's too simple and "dumb" sounding.
    Justice - Great name. 10/10 Sounds great that also fits this Pokemon.
    Khafra - 10/10 Original, fits, flows and looks great.

    Bit 64 - 1.5/10 The "Bit" is good, but numbers are a no-no!!
    Egregore - 10/10 Original, and even though its long, it flows well so it works!
    Hovercomp - 2/10 Two words combined just does not work sometimes.
    Shi 108 - 1.5/10 No numbers! Add more to the Shi perhaps?
    Glitterimp - 3/10 Another case where two words don't make the best name. Tossing the "p" for Glitterim would be a 10/10 (Amazing how one letter makes a difference! Don't you think?)
    Lansy - 8/10 Not too shabby. It works.

    Darren - 6/10 Not bad, but needs to be spiffed up.
    Oscar - 5/10 Same as above.
    Ganmen - 8/10 Creative name, flows well.

    Sorry if it seems I got a bit "lazy" as I went on but you had a LOT of names I needed to look at.

    Your "copy & paste" signature is annoying and redundant.

    Came up with the name because it's part of Gyarados's name; it means 'destruction', so I think it suits Gyarados quite fine.
    Powerhouse - 1/10 Not a nickname, more of a term to describe it, especially because "power" and "house" are two different words. Doesn't work at all and I think worthy of a much better name.
    'Powerhouse' is one word. It just means something that's ridiculously powerful, which he is. He's one of my strongest pokemon.
    Shisa - 7/0 Add more after it and it would be a 10. (It's a girl right?)
    ...It's a male... And it's what Arcanine's design is based off of...

    Shoryuashi - 5/10 Falls in the same trap as Gyarados. Too wordy for such a long name. Splitting it up would be better. I like how creative you're being though.
    Means 'Rising Dragon Kick', which suits its nature of kicking things.
    Fenrir - 10/10 A recognizable, good nickname that is still unique. Fits it well!
    Dragonfly - 1/10 How does this work? XD
    It's an ice-type. What two types are weak against ice? Dragon and flying. :3

    Shoryuken - 7.5/10 Not too bad, too many syllables though for a nickname.
    Vee-dub - 1.5/10 Just doesn't fit this Pokemon well. Looks odd and flows odd too.
    It's a Venusaur-Wannabe... a VW... A Vee-dub.
    Dood - 1/10 Doesn't fit this noble Pokemon. It's too simple and "dumb" sounding.
    I guess Disgaea references are lost on you...
    Justice - Great name. 10/10 Sounds great that also fits this Pokemon.
    Khafra - 10/10 Original, fits, flows and looks great.

    Bit 64 - 1.5/10 The "Bit" is good, but numbers are a no-no!!
    Yeah, I'm thinking about renaming it...
    Egregore - 10/10 Original, and even though its long, it flows well so it works!
    Hovercomp - 2/10 Two words combined just does not work sometimes.
    Thinking about renaming it, too...
    Shi 108 - 1.5/10 No numbers! Add more to the Shi perhaps?
    Want to rename it as well.
    Glitterimp - 3/10 Another case where two words don't make the best name. Tossing the "p" for Glitterim would be a 10/10 (Amazing how one letter makes a difference! Don't you think?)
    Eh, it's all I could think of at the time.
    Lansy - 8/10 Not too shabby. It works.

    Darren - 6/10 Not bad, but needs to be spiffed up.
    Oscar - 5/10 Same as above.
    Ganmen - 8/10 Creative name, flows well.

    Sorry if it seems I got a bit "lazy" as I went on but you had a LOT of names I needed to look at.

    I only really use nicknames for my EV'd Pokemon and i put them with a themed base name to keep them easily distinguishable from my other teams.

    Stealth Rock Sweeper Team
    Heatran (M) - De-myX. Irony of a water users name for a fire type Pokemon
    Tyranitar (F) - Mad-reaX. a loose spelling on Madre which is mother in italian apparently.
    Electrivire (M) - Xam-eios. Just a name i liked for him
    Magmortar (F) - Fi-raX. Obvious choice if you play Final Fantasy
    Scizor (F) - Et-aX. My friend loves tea so... anagram.
    Raichu (F) - Xolotl. Aztec god of thunder.

    Because you have a reason to name them the way you do, I'll just rate the team as a whole. Very unique, but looking at them as Pokemon and teammates rather than fighting things, not very good except for Xolotl. The capital "X" is very off-putting at the end too. Most sound good (silent X assuming) Kudos to the uniqueness though. As a whole: 5.5/10

    .
    You're Butterfree beat the Kanto Champ? It must be a hardcore Butterfree, just curious what are its stats?

    As for the thread, my nicknames:

    Skorupi-Kyo

    Quilava-Dan

    Lana-Froslass

    Kayla-Carvanha

    Lloyd-Sandshrew

    Noel-Staravia

    As you can see, it's a newbie team just getting on its legs. I can't decide if I wanna replace Skorupi with my Venonat(eventually Venomoth) or Spinkark..which even in its evolved form isn't all that great but I like it.
