    I name my pokemon based on their species' first letter in their name. But if it starts with a z or something that's difficult, I make a random pick

    Oh, that's the frog king from Phantom Hourglass. I was referring to Cyclos from The Wind Waker, but thanks anyway, now I know what to nickname Thundurus!

    I nicknamed my krookodile Cookie, but I might change it to Kakarot, goku's other name in DragonBall z

    Not sure whether to name my Darmanitan Maka, Destroyer, or Hulk Smash. C: I like all three! She was originally named Maka, from the Darumaka I caught her as, but now she's a powerhouse so I like the the last two.

    I named my snivy Queen Ivy, but I'd like a male to name Malfoy or Dr.Sniddly. I love how snivy's eve line looks, they're so cute!

    Am I the only who who named my Cofagrigus "Grimhotep"? It seemed to be a pretty popular fan name, so I doubt I am.

    I totally named my Litwick "RuPaul", for obvious reasons.
    Anyway, most of the nicknames I give my pokemon are entirely random. For example, I named my Pidove "Widget", and my Audino "Buttons". They just sounded good at the time.

    Snivy - Eden
    Tepig - Rotisserie
    Oshawott - Myrmidon

    I wish I had thought of naming my Reuniclus Jello, that's nice. I hadn't thought of a good name for it.

    My favorite, Naming my Female Hippowdon "Opera", because it's not over until the fat lady sings...

    Krookodile = Darkodile [He's dark... and I hate saying Krook]
    Samurott = Sharpoon [Have you seen his horn? seriously...]
    Haxorus = Axesorex [Similar to the original but I like this better]
    Stoutland = Spot [He's a dog... come on]
    Escaliver = Lancargot [Lance from Arthur myth + escargot (french word for snail)]
    Accelgor = Ninjility [Ninja + agility]
    BLASTOISE RULES!!!

    Don't pick on a Squirtle just because it's small, because one day that Squirtle will become a Blastoise!

    I sorta named mine after the Greek gods of mythology:

    Garchomp = Ares
    Typhlosion = Astraeus
    Espeon = Artemis
    Togekiss = Aether
    Ampharos = Apollo
    Milotic - Aphrodite

    And there I find You in the mystery

    My team up until the Elite Four:

    Samurott - Revolver (Soooo original)
    Braviary - Ezio
    Zoroark - Finn (Named after my dog. I had a Lillipup with the same name earlier in the game but I didn't want to evolve it and realised how much it'd suck balls if I didn't so it got replaced)
    Victini - Nike (The goddess of victory, not the shoes xD)
    Zebstrika - Ixion
    Fraxure - Absinthe. Later replaced by Cobalion - Curacao

    Now I use Zekrom instead of Zebstrika, but can't decide what to name it yet, and a Flareon called Disaronno instead of Victini because aaallll my friends are using Victini and I wanted to be different.

    Hey guys, I have been getting a few PMs about wut to name your Lillipup/Purrloin so here it is:
    Lillipup: Whatever your dog's name is
    Purrloin: Whatever your cat's name is

    Nothing could be much simpler than that and it makes you really attached to them

    Okay, here's a couple of the nicknames that I'm using on my team:

    My Shiny Hydreigon is going to be called AbyssHydra, Hydra obviously being a reference to the fact that he's based off a hydra, and Abyss being a deep, dark chasm from which no light can escape from (at least, that's what I know an abyss to be)

    My Chandelure is named OnibiWight, with Onibi referencing the black spiritual flame which is the japanese equivalent of the Will-o-Wisp, and Wight being a type of ghost

    My Sigilyph (mother from Dream World), will be called NazcaTotem. The totem part is because in my opinion, it looks like it could disguise itself as the very top part of a totem pole, and Nazca is in reference to it's relation to the Nazca Lines
