    Default Pokémon Nickname Discussion Thread

    All you have to do is tell us what you will be nicknaming your pokemon and why:
    No swear words or any other rude or gross words (there are kids as little as 6 visiting this site)
    Please tell us a nickname that is appropriate to the pokemon ur nicknaming
    Follow these simple rules and your all good to go


    Some tips on how to get a good pokemon name:
    Use the nature, maybe some of the name of the preevolved form of the pokemon, it's characteristic, it's type, maybe even it's move...
    another tip is that it is also good to take a bit of its look
    Enjoy

    Approving, but a warning in advance to explain nicknames your chose or so forth so this thread is more than a 'I called this ____' (ie. a postcount +1) thread.

    I'm breeding a fun team on my white game I'm naming "Team DURP!" which is basically a team made up of pokemon with silly or durpy faces.

    Conkledurr (ConkleDURP)
    Stunfisk (DURPafish)
    Swoobat (DURPabat)
    Garbodor (GarboDURP)
    Vanilluxe (DURPacone)

    I haven't decided who I want for the 6th spot yet.

    This my current team in game.

    Debbie - Crustle

    I based this name on Cruste's pre-evolved form. Plus Debbie is a pretty name for a girl hermit crab! :P

    Dee - Deino

    I was going to name him Dino as a reference to the flintstone, but this was my first choice

    Lily - Stoutland

    Also Named after it's pre-evolved form

    Woo - Swoobat

    He loves to "Woo" the ladies with that little heart shape on his face!

    Chewy - Beartic

    Reminds me of Chubaka from starwars 8D

    Blitz - Emboar

    I really Dunno!
    Oh noes D:

    I nicknamed Lilipup - Lily. Still no idea why.
    I nicknamed Purloin- Coolcat. Good try right?
    Nicknamed Blitzle- Elecra. Basicly Electric and Zebra
    I have nicknamed Darumaka- Hotdog. I know he is not a dog btw.
    I nicknamed Vanilitte- Yum. I was hungry and it is an icecream/snow cone and I had no idea what to nickname it so I called it that. lol.

    I named my Serperior 'Smugleaf', I'm sure you can all see the reasoning for it. Nicknamed Galvantula 'Elecnid' (Electricity + Arachnid), and Panpour 'Muffin Top', though that doesn't really apply for its evolution. My (soon to be) Braviary is nicknamed America.

    I themed my White team around Norse mythology. The pickings were slim, so...

    Samurott - Fenrir, only one who fit that name.
    Lilligant - Yggdrasill, the Tree of Life, because of the Grass Typing.
    Scrafty - Beowulf, the fighter
    Golurk - Thor, he's big and scary, that is all.
    Chandelure - Loki, the mischievous God. Fitting, huh?
    Reuniclus - Ragnarok. Not sure why. Both begin with "R", so..

    I named my team using names based off Greek mythology.

    Samurott- Poseidon, the greek god of water
    Scrafty- Ares, the god of war. Plus, he can usually OHKO things by himself (he took out Clay's first pokemon w/ Brick Break! )
    Emolga- Appllo/Zeus, named after the god of the sky/god of light (considering I can find one of these things :P)
    Chandelure- Nike, the Greek goddess of victory.
    Haxorus- Demios, based off one of the sons of the god Ares. Name means "terror."
    Sawsbuck- Pan, based off the half-man, half-goat of Greek mythology.

    Sawsbuck- Pan, based off the half-man, half-goat of Greek mythology.
    Scrafty should be "Ares" war god. More fitting, or "Nike" god of vicotry.

    Chandelure would be GREAT for hades. (if you seen hercules, then youd understand, plus hes a ghos typing and darker)

    I know a lot of greek mythology:P

    Oh, I like the idea! (And I have the movie Hercules, love it). :] I'll change the names once I find the name-rater. Thanks for the help! Do you think the rest of the names fit?

    Here are some random names that I loved I put to some pokemon:


    Grace- Name for a swana in black and white that I used for surf and fly. I just loved how the name went for the Swan

    Amunet- goddess of the unknown and the name for my Cofrarigus in B/W

    Legion-My Hydraegon in B/W I think it is pretty self explenatory: has the power of a legion

    Heavy Joe- Conkeldur... come on! the name and pokemon speak for themselves! That´s one Heavy Joe right there!

    Sadjojata: Name for Snivy. It looks like a serpent, which are related to Shiva, and Sadjojata is the name of the creator part of Shiva, which linked to growh and plants to me. Yeah, it´s a bit forced, but I loved the name and I just put it to my now serperior

    Brahma: Emboar .Another hindu god. He became a boar once when trying to find out the end of Shiva´s lingam. Not much more to it. Again I just wanted the name of an hindu God.

    Bael: I love this name . It was for my simisage. Bael is the kind of leave with which Shiva worship is generally done, and simisage is leafy. Yeah may be silly, but still, I just love the name and how it fit´s him... more than rationale because it just... well fits him

    That is made of win. I only wish there was a way you could remove items so you could take them off of it at really dramatic moments :P

    Lets see, original team in White:

    Samurott - Villain (Named as an Oshawott, because I called it 'my little villain' <3)
    Gigalith - Hardcore (Because of the pun in 'roggenrola' and its pokedex entry)
    Cofagrigus - Taboo (Because touching it removes your ability)
    Chandelure - Wicker (It was a candle, and wicker park was a creepy movie)
    Beartic - Fang (It's white and has icicle teeth)
    Jellicent - Kaliliput (I can't pull up a source so I might be wrong, but I remember reading a story when I was younger about some arctic monster that coaxes young children down into cracks in the ice and then eats them. I think this was the name...anyway since it likes to paralyze and drag down prey, I thought it worked.)

    Hahaha I have a Samurott Musashi too!
    Although I want the entire world to know that Mr. Miyagi's name came from Chojun Miyagi, a practitioner of gojoryu karate and mentor to tatsuo shimabuku.

    I have a Leonidas Golurk (this is madness!) and a Bambi Sawsbuck. I need better names...

    I'm not nicknaming very many, but I'm nicknaming Zoroark Starlight because... um... I don't know, it just seems like a good name for a Dark-Type. Plus it's female. And the male will be Midnight for obvious reasons.
    I'm also nicknaming some more, but I can't remember them...

    Ah, yes, I probably just said something stupid there, didn't I? Not surprising, I've been called an idiot on multiple occasions, although I do consider myself to be more intelligent than most...
