    I'm planning a mono-electric team and naming them all after gym leaders:
    Electivire: Lt. Surge
    Jolteon: Volkner
    Manectric: Wattson
    Zebstrika: Elesa
    Magneton: Byron
    Lanturn: Jasmine
    (Had to use steel-type leaders because there aren't enough electric types. Also not a lot of electric type specialist from the anime that I could recall to use.)
    FC: 2878-9618-0886

    Safari:
    Growlithe, Charmeleon, & Braixen



    Vivillon Pattern: Polar


    Current Pokedex: 442/719


    PM if you add me so that I can add you back

    I nickname all my pokemon, but here are some of mine

    Adamalli; Adamall means snake, and the ending "ee" sound is to make it a little cuter, I suppose
    Zula; sounded pretty :P
    Pantalon; french for pants
    Mimsy; its Whimsy, but with the W turned upside down :P
    Belle; I named my female one this. I was thinking of Beauty and the Beast.
    Fogozee; Fogo is Portuguese for fire, and zee is from Chimpanzee.
    Bandito; for the eye marks
    Concord; look below
    Grapes; look above
    Colbert; as in, Steven Colbert

    I always give them names that I just like... I don't really have any pattern. But, I will only nickname the pokes I use in competitive battling.

    I like, named my Machop Chuck Norris, because, well... Machamp is the Chuck Norris of Pokemon. Or is it Clay...

    But what I'm gonna start doing is like, naming them after something in a foreign language, cause... that's what a true Pokefan does.

    Lankford (As in Dragon Lankford, the warrior trainer)

    Just named my Pansear Singe, which is French for monkey and it's Fire- related.

    Also caught an (Adamant)Sandile and named it Sospechoso (Yes, there's JUST enough room), which is Spanish means Shifty.

    Usually I try to give them nick names that play to their characteristics.

    Best example I think would be my Torterra in Pearl: Timberland

    Team in my signature in order from left to right:

    Kudzu (hard to kill vine)
    Wart (poison touch ability and it's a toad)
    Husk (shed skin ability)
    Nautilus (Captain Nemo's sub in 20,00 Leagues Under the Sea)
    Sting (Best thing I could think of)
    Storm (Short for Storm Eagle which is kind of an indian sounding name)

    Other Favorites:
    Empoleon: Neptune
    Arcanine: Apollo
    Hippodown: M/Dune F/Terra
    Tropius: F/Chiquita cause of the bananas on its neck
    Weavile: Frostbite
    Luxray: Flux
    Lanturn: M/Surge
    Crobat: M/Screech F/Siren
    Feraligatr: Thrash
    Aerodactyl: Freefall
    Rayquaza: Stratos
    Dialga: Chronos
    Palkia: Cosmos
    Giratina: Necros

    and the list goes on...

    I have a few. Here they are

    Sawk(male)-Gohan-I named him this because Sawk is a Beast.Gohan is my favorite dbz character,and wanted to name something Gohan.
    Throh(male)-Krillin-Another dbz Reference.I needed a double battle partner for Sawk, so I caught this guy and named him Krillin, One of Gohan's partners in the show.
    Thundurus(male)-Lakitu-This one Is a reference to Some of the Mario games.You know that guy on the cloud that drops spikeys? Yeah, He's called Lakitu.Now compare Him and Thundurus,and you will see why I named him this.
    Volcorona(female)-Mothra- Godzilla reference.Volcorona looks like a moth.Mothra in Godzilla is female, and so is this volcorona.
    Heracross(Male)-King X-Just a Random nickname for this Random heracross.It sounds cool I guess.

    I always name my starter Ace. I also name some of my really good pokemon other than starters Ace. It's pretty much because of the phrase "ace in the hole" because if all of my other pokemon are beaten I still have that one left that will put up a good fight. I suggest this nickname for sweepers or for adamant natured pokemon.
