    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.

    Chandelure - Luminyte (iluminate refering to the fact that chandelure family is a form of light and fire... 'nyte' -> night since its a ghost type.)

    Escavalier - Sir Knight (hes a knight... 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.

    +Current Team for White. Team for Black TBD+

    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!

    I nicknamed my Oshawott "Musashi" after a legendary samurai. Named my Timburr "Miyagi" after Mr.Miyagi on the Karate Kid.

    Yes that is a Female Dino Charge Red. It's a FanFic thing

    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'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...

    I named my Oshawott Nala, after Nala from The Lion King because Samurott? Yeah, ninja sea lion.

    I named my Patrat Timon, named for Timon (also from The Lion King) because it and Watchog are totally meerkats.

    I'm gonna name my future Rufflet McMurphy, after R. P. McMurphy from One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Amazing book.

    I'm gonna name my future Vanillite either Finn (Glee), Gastby (The Great Gatsby), or something to be decided. I'm having a hrd time choosing a name. Maybe James (Gatsby's first name)?

    My future Larvesta will be named Santana after Santana from Glee.

    And, finally, my Druddigon will be name Hagrid, because Hagrid from Harry Potter deserves to be a dragon and be awesome and yeah.


    So, nicknames:

    Nala the female Oshawott/Dewott/Samurott
    Timon the male Patrat/Watchog
    McMurphy the male Rufflet/Braviary
    Finn/Gatsby/James the male Vanillite/Vanillish/Vanilluxe
    Santana the female Larvesta/Volcarona
    Hagrid the male Druddigon
    Current Black Team: Rivka (Stoutland), Elmo (Musharna), Scarlett (Whimsicott), Gabriel (Carracosta), Reese (Klang), Sean (Mienfoo); all are at level 47. Currently in Victory Road.

    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.

    Chandelure- Haven't decided yet.
    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.
    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

    Urschleim (Duosion) is from an old German term referring to 'primordial slime'. Not exactly what the Solosis line is based on but it fit close enough.

    Banksy (Scraggy), because I wanted the name of some sort of 'urban' figure as the namesake, and the only one I could really think of is Banksy.

    Mausolus (Cofagrigus) is from the Greek king, after whom the word 'mausoleum' was created. Fits it very well.

    Hyperion (Boldore) comes from the Titan of Greek mythology. Didn't feel very inventive on this one. <_<

    Joliett (Vanillish) comes from Joliet, the town in Illinois where Dairy Queen began.

    Galahad (Karrablast) comes from the (possibly) fictional medieval knight.

    The future surrounds us.

    Let us begin.

    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?

    The name-renamer is in castilla city lol.

    The other names.... Yup they make sence. If sawsbuck is a FEMALE then name it "Demeter" or "persephone" (spell check that name)

    Demeter - Goddess of grains and stuff.... it could relate to seasons.
    Persephone - taken by your chandelure (hades) and due to that we have the seasons of winter or fall or whater.

    If Sawsbuck is a male, then Pan is fine.


    Emolga - (flying squirrel right?) You could name "Zues" god of lightning, since its an electirc type, and he is king of the skys, or "Hermes" since he could fly. If its a female you can try "Iris" goddess of rainbow.

    My team doesn't have a theme, just what ever I felt like.

    Serperior - Infinite (My mage from Dragon Age Origins.)
    Zoroark - Legion ("We are legion, a terminal of the Geth.")
    Swoobat - Casanova (Why not?)
    Carracosta - Bastion (Again, no particular reason.)
    Reuniclus - Sol Dios (Named after the Sol Dios cannon from Armored Core For Answer.)
    Galvantula - Shockopath (Once more, why not?)

    I've only nicknamed my starter so far.

    Oshawott: Ishi.

    Named after one of the main characters from Bulletstorm. From the moment I heard it, it just sounded so adorable and fitting for him.

    My final nickanmes for my team:

    Samurott- Poseidon, the Greek god of water
    Sawsbuck- Persephone, goddess of the underworld

    Scrafty- Ares, god of war
    Emolga- Zeus, god of the sky

    B/W actually doesn't allow you to nickname your Pokémon with swear words or other questionable subjects... I personally think that limitation is stupid, but whatever.

    Anyways,
    Snivy - Quite (because all he needs is a top hat and and monocle, then he's a high society member)
    Panpour - Splash (water...)
    Blitzle - Always (because he reminded me a bit of a unicorn. Go play Robot Unicorn Attack if you don't get this.)
    Trubbish - Belch (after Master Belch from EarthBound. Unfortunately, MasterBelch is one letter too long, so I had to shorten it.)

    I've refrained from nicknaming most of my Pokémon so I can actually learn their names. Already I've had trouble; I actually had to look up Blitzle's name because I didn't remember it.
