    I want to nickname my Politoed 'Elvis'. Why? Here, consider this:

    -It evolves from Poliwhirl when traded while holding a King's Rock.
    -It's known for great singing abilities

    My Bisharp is named Reddokira it is the japanese tranlation of "the Red Killer"
    My Blaziken is named Heero because I thought it suited him really well.
    My Tyranitar is named Cyrus because it sounds powerful and leader-like.
    My Scizor is named Kenshin fits him.
    My Infernape is named Ichi.... because of Bleach.
    My Weavile is named Albel because it reminds me of the character from starocean.
    My Garchomp is named Cecil because of Final Fantasy.
    My Haxorous is named Claymore because its a beast.
    My Sableye is named Nicholae because that name always seemed kind of dark to me.
    My Excadrill is named Rush because that just sounds awesome.
    My Whimsicott is named Capricorn because it looks like a little goat. : D

    I named my 3 Mudkip "mudkipz" (don't need to explain), "herduliek?" (once again, I don't need to explain), and Axel, a corruption of Axol, derived from axolotl.

    My Golurk is named Riser, which is a name the big guy earned. Riser rapidly rose through the ranks, if you will, and became the strongest member of my team thus becoming the team leader. He's risen to the occasion and taken out Pokemon that would normally lay him out flat and gotten more wins for me than anyone else.

    He's also the one who ended Ghetsis. I'd say he more than earned his monicker.

    My Sawk was originally named Tremblor, but I changed it to Hero. Why? Early on, my Sawk was my team's hero, getting me and everyone else through some really tough times. Again, my Pokemon earned the nickname; it wasn't freely given.

    My Oshawott's name is pretty straightforward: Prima, after a character in the Transformers mythos who carries a sword. I thought it fit.

    May you be waiting for me in the next Gen and forevermore.
    These are my babies. Be kind to them.

    The nicknames for my in-game team are as follows, and yes, I took a very mythological route when choosing their names:
    Samurott: Susanoo, a Japanese god of Water who fought the Orochi
    Volcarona: Seraphima, after the Seraph-class angels of fire which are known for having six wings, with an extra "a" added to the end to sound pretty
    Eelektross: Ouroboros, after the symbol of a serpent that swallows its own tail
    Archeops: Simurgh, after the divine Persian bird
    Escavalier: Durandal; I couldn't think of an applicable deity after which to name him, but in keeping with the mythological theme, I instead named him after a legendary sword (but not Excalibur, because that seemed too similar to his original name)
    Hydreigon: Orochi, the eight-headed dragon after which Hydreigon was designed (plus it ties into Samurott's nickname)

    How should I know?


    I nicknamed my new shiny Misdreavus Necklace. It's a pretty self-explanatory nickname, as it has red spots around its neck that look like a necklace.
    I'm so broke, I can't even afford a cool signature.

    I nicknamed my Tepig Napalm, which is now an Emboar
    I nicknamed my Bisharp Ken Kage, "Dark Blade" in japanese. Son of my old Bisharp, Annihilate
    Lanturn is still pending. Haven't decided yet
    Mienshao? I think of replacing that with an Exeggcutor. Other than that, his nickname is Chan, like Jackie Chan
    Druddigons' nickname is Dragoon. Named after Magma Dragoon from Megaman X4.
    Ferrothorn's nickname is Iron whip. I plan to give him a japanese nickname

    I named my Gardevoir Knight, even though she's female.
    My Empoleon's name is Barty.
    I named my Ampharos Amphy after the one in the Olivine Lighthouse.
    And finally, my Diagla's name is Averon. It was just the first one that came to mind.
    Normally I don't really name my Pokemon. I switch them out so much I lose track of them and forget.

    Default Nicknames

    Hhmm, I don't remeber all the ones I nickedname thus far. I only nickname pokes that will be a part of my team, though I never nickname legendaries, since I feel it's disrespectful to there legendary stats. Though I have no problem with others nicknaming thier legendaries, I just do with mine ^^;

    Anyways here is what I have so far.

    Excadrill - IronDrill♠

    Nidoking - KING♠

    Emboar - TemperNova

    Ursaring - Axe

    Kingler - Hammer

    Hmm, let's see.

    In Platinum:
    Chelon (Torterra) - Turtles and tortoises collectively are called Chelonians.
    Masaharu (Gallade) - I chose an actual Japanese name because Gallade is so human-like.
    Zhao Long (Giratina) - I think that Long is Chinese for dragon. I don't remember where the Zhao bit came from.
    The others aren't very noteworthy.

    Other names that I tend to use for stories, or whenever I start a new game:
    Gallus (Blaziken) - The genus in which domestic chickens are placed, which ironically sounds quite threatening when used as a name.
    Sturnus (Staraptor) - Same loic as the above, but it's the genus for starlings.
    Felsen (Golem) - German for stone, I believe.
    Tori (Pidgeot) - Japanese for bird.

    If only there was enough room to nickname my Simisear 'Nitrox 3 1/2'. Oh well, 'Nitrox 3.5' will work.

    I named my initial Black team after Chrono Trigger characters.

    Serperior: Magus
    Audino: Marle

    Swoobat: Lucca
    Simipour: Frog (Should have gotten a seismitoad, but I had a ground type already and I already had Panpour :/ )

    I named my Stoutland "Oates", because in my fanfiction, my Stoutland like has a serious love for oatmeal cookies, and what dog doesn't like some bread or cookie-based based something?

    I usually don't name my starters, but I broke tradition in gen five and gave/will gave them names-

    Tepig (White version) I named Coals since it fits the fire theme and sounds cool to say, also the name of my Tepig in my fanfiction (Written mostly for my private amusement, it'll need work before I can share it)

    Oshawott (Don't have one I want to keep yet) but his name will be Wiley, since he'll be on the naughty, yet truly nice side.

    Snivy's name will be "Shuri", since it sounds samurai like and that's how I picture my Snivy, but I'll have to breed one.

    I named my Krokorok "Ace" since that name has a cool sound to it without being overly dark about it.

    I named my Stantler from Soul Silver Jingle, since again in my fanfiction, there's a Stantler who has a fondness for bells, not related to Christmas or the Winter Solstice in any way, though.

    When I get an Axew for my White game I'll name it "Crusher" since once it evolves to Fraxure, it'll better live up to the name.

    Yunowun my dewott. Any guesses on it's name's origin?

    Geyser my simisear since he's Ol' Reliable in taking care of both my favorite types' weaknesses; water's grass and psychic's bug.

    Chip my watchog. Started as my cut pokemon, but while going through the game he collected the effort values I wasn't looking to aquire with the pokemon on my team (since I ev trained while going through the game), so now he's part of the team.

    Psidekic, my psychic sidekick.

    Terri my stoutland. Not a hard name to figure out.

    And finally Max my shiny elgyem. Named Max because I finally found him during a shiny hunt in another thread while watching Flight Of The Navigator (which is fitting since he's an alien). Max was the name of ship.
