    My favorite and most cherished nickname ever is Cindy, which I gave to a Tailow, my first ever flying type. Now, Cindy one 2 master rank contests in Emerald, when I realized that Cindy was a guy! DERP! So, I renamed him Sam, and I wish I could find Sam and my Swampert for my Emerald, so I can get them to my Gen 4 games, as I am really lacking a DS with a GBA slot.

    Name: Flick
    Adopt one yourself! @Pokémon Orphanage





    Both of the test results fit me perfectly, except for the fact I am quite smart. This next guy works too, but to a lesser extent.

    One of the best nicknames I have seen is a Gastrodon named FdelGastro

    I am not good at coming up with nicknames on my own.

    I typically like to have all my pokemon starting with the same letter so...

    Emboar - Firefist: pretty self-explanatory
    Zoroark (not the event one, an egg from a friend.) - Foeditas: Horror in latin
    Gothitelle - Femmebrune: a translation of dark lady to french i think.
    Vanilluxe: Froiduer: Coldness in french
    Leavanny: Faenum: Latin for grass, but sounds cool
    Seismitoad: Frog: Ran out of ideas derp :P
    My Pokemon Black Team:

    Ok, so I was just introducing my new party to my girlfriend, and I had opened up the conversation with, "Meet my Scraggy, Nachoe."

    She flipped shizz and next thing I knew, she was naming it for me. We started with Toby, but we later named it Coco. "I see london, I see france, I see coco's underpants!" (Rugrats reference, for those who didn't catch it).

    And I thought, hm. I'll let her name my Pokemon. Make her happy, and I really just wanted to be sure that they were real useable names.

    So she started listing off nicknames for each Pokemon and this is the final list:

    Bob the Jellicent (Monsters vs. Aliens. BOB is the blue jelly thing, which is what Jellicent is)
    Coco the Scrafty (already explained)
    Mushu the Druddigon (Mulan dragon reference)
    Rafiki the Carracosta (Lion King reference. I really don't know, but it seems ok)
    Zazu the Eelektross (another lion king reference. She really is adamant about this one, and it's ok I guess.)
    Alodia the Musharna (my only real contribution. I caught my first Musharna at a cosplay event in the Philippines, and Alodia was the main star. I caught my Musharna, so I decided I might as well. And we thought it was a pretty name, so there it is)

    Yes, my girlfriend is a disney fan. And yes, she just finished watching the Lion King 3D. I love her.

    I like to give my teams nicknames that reference something about either their physical appearance, their natures, or their personalities as seen in the anime. Sometimes I will have "themed" teams. For instance, one of my teams is named after types of clouds, preciptation, or similar. Gengar was "smog", swanna was "mist", Amoongus was "dew", Cofragrius was "Cumulus", and musharna was "haze."

    Also, sometimes I will name my 6 pokemon after 6 favorite songs on an album or something


    Kalos Team: Delphox, Florges, Aegislash, Heliolisk, Hawlucha, Avalugg
    Latest Shiny: Helioptile




    Fire Safari: Ponyta, Pyroar, Braixen - 1478-3803-9332
    I have claimed #671, Florges

    Is it right to name a Feebas Serenity BEFORE it evolves?

    Definitely. Feebas look pretty serene in their own right. They don't look happy by any means, but they definitely look calm.

    I'll often nickname my pokemon with references to other video games. For instance:
    My shiny Gigalith: Memoria (a crystalline world from Final Fantasy IX)
    My shiny Bisharp: Atma (after the Atma Weapon from Final Fantasy VI)
    My Milotic: Enhasa (the land of magic from Chrono Trigger)

    Then other nicknames are kind of out there... for example:
    My Gengar: Ace (short for 'menace' and because he's so powerful, the way Aces are powerful in many card games)
    My shiny Musharna: Dreamheart (Reference to Dream Mist, and because she was bred from another Musharna named Moon Child. I just thought the two names kind of went together)
    My Drifblim: Breezy (he can use Icy Wind)

    My Youtube battle videos
    My 3DS FC: 3609-1041-6416.

    I have claimed Goodra. Happy slime dragons ftw!

    My teams Nicknames:
    Steelix - Tremblorix (I thought of an earthquake each time I see him (not sure why) Tremble+Steelix)
    Charizard - Charithrax (I liked the sound of the x at the end, again not sure why but the name came out fitting)
    Dragonite - Draconix (Same as above explanation.)
    Metagross - Titanious (A play off of Titanium, -ous worked well here.)
    Haxarous - Calabraxis (I looked up common dragon names, and came up with this one. It was a mix of two names)
    Krookodile - Duke (No idea, it was 3 in the morning, I was just about to quit for the day, and a shiny sandile appeared, caught it, and Duke popped into my head.)
    ****Did I mention, my entire team consist of the shiny forms of the pokemon? I hatched 4/6 of them, currently working on hatching a shiny Dratini, and the Shiny sandile was just an awesome find.

    Female Simipour: Mio (cute....that's all : P)

    Hah, I nickname most of my Pokemon after scientists and doctors/psychologists, or just after famous people in general. I'll name them differently on occasion (some are named after bands or musicians, mythical figures, some are just given funny nicknames), but it really just depends upon the mood I'm in. Here are some of my favorites:

    KHRUSHCHEV the Honchkrow
    TESLA the Galvantula
    OEDIPUS the (male) Cloyster
    MECHNIKOV the Reuniclus
    FOREMAN the Hitmonchan
    STEVEPERRY the Aerodactyl
    CELSIUS the Glaceon, paired with FAHRENHEIT the Flareon
    AINSWORTH the Alakazam

    However, I do not nickname my legendary Pokemon.
