    Leggs- Galvantula. This should be fairly obvious; it's a Tarantula

    Balla- Scrafty. Scrafty is based on gang members, hence it's baggy pants. In GTA San Andreas the rival gang was called the Ballas (might have the spelling wrong-haven't played it in years) so I called it that.

    Oakley- Krookodile. After the sunglasses make. The Sandile line has the black eyes obviously.

    Oddjob- Sigilyph. This is so uncreative. It looks odd, so I called it Oddjob :S

    Darmanitan- Alastair. The EYEBROWS. If you don't know who Alastair Darling is, google him, you'll see why I called him this.
    good job you helpfull street light

    Lil - Stoutland (Short for Lilipup)
    Coo - Tranquill (sound a pidgeon makes)
    Maka - Darumaka

    Serperior - Suta (This was before the English name was revealed, short for Tsutarja)

    I just got my copy yesterday and sincerelly I'm trying to learn the true names of the new pokemon so I am not nicknaming them yet, however, when I received my Tepig I saw its evolutions as they became bigger and rounder so I named him Gordon, I like to give normal names to my pokemon and in spanish Gordo means Fat, so Gordon is a little pun on the fact that Emboar is huge!

    I was about to name my Timburr as Doug (because Doug sounds like a name for a construction worker and that is what Timburr and his family looks like to me) and my Blitzle as Marty (after the zebra from Madagascar).

    Right after I have memorized all the names of the new pokemon I will change their nicknames but for now, I will go with the default ones.

    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.
    How do they do that?

    Samurott = Oceanus, Titan of the seas (or embodiment, whatever)
    Darmanitan = Prometheus, Titan of Forethought, he brought fire and all that, and Forethought could relate to Zen Mode
    Lilligant = Helios, Titan of the Sun, refers to Chlorophyll, even though I have Own Tempo, and might also reference the Sun Stone
    Excadrill = Atlas, Titan of the Heavens, strongest Titan, he has to hold up the earth and Excadrill is Ground type, as well as Excadrill is very strong after a Swords Dance
    Musharna = Epimetheus, Titan of Afterthought, no explanation needed
    Scrafty = Hyperion, the Titan of Light, I actually have no real reason, maybe Scrafty's yellow, I really don't know. I might also go with Iapetus, the second strongest Titan.

    Yeah, I'm being unoriginal with Greek Mythology, but just original to set the mark since I'm using Titans, not Olympians.

    I still need suggestions for my female Zebstrika's new nickname. For those of you who don't remember, it used to be Shina, but then I found out that's apparently racist (God damn it, Google). It should have something to do with thunder, lightning, or light in gemeral, but I really want it to be unique at the same time.

    I'm starting with training a double battle Subway team, these are the names so far:
    Ferroseed: Furious
    I have no idea why, but this seemed like a nice name for it.
    Ninetales: ???
    Haven't gotten any inspiration for it yet.
    Altaria: Winona
    Cause Altaria always reminds me of Winona and Winona is my favourite gym leader ever.
    Camerupt: Eruption
    Camerupt without the name Eruption won't own everyone imo .

    Does anyone have any advice on a name for Ninetales? I really have no idea.

    My teams nicknames are as follows:

    Poseidon the Samurott
    Aphrodite the Whimsicott
    Athena the Fraxure
    Arachne the Galavantula
    Ares the Exadrill
    Hermes the Archeops
    I named my team these names because I'm taking a mythology class in college and thought that would be cool. Not so cool that 4 of them start with A XD

    The Nick names are in my sig:
    Aqua -> Samurott
    Aqua is just because it is a Water Type, very simple and soooooo cute
    Blaze -> Chandelure
    This name is also based on the type, fire, and also his flames
    Dusty -> Braviary
    This because I like the name AND a bird can whip up dust with it's wings
    Shadow -> Hydreigon
    Because of it's appearence, the darkness and the shadows
    Bugsy -> Leavanny
    Because it's a bug and there's a bug gym leader with that name
    Psycho -> Reuniclus
    Because of it's type, Psychic.
    As you can see all the names are based on Types and how the pkmn look.

    Here are my nicknames (all Pokémon in fully-evolved forms, although they're not in my game yet):

    Samurott - Triton (Greek God)
    Watchog - Suri (from Suricata, the name of the species Watchog is based off)
    Zebstrika - Bronte (from Bronte and Sterope, the steeds that pulled Helios' chariot; both based off thunder and lightening)
    Swanna - Odette (main character in Swan Lake)
    Haxorus - Kratos (Greek God of War - strength and power)
    Chandelure - Apate (Greek Goddess of Trickery, Deception, etc.)

    As you can see, I like to nickname after Greek Gods.

    I think I like Levina best. I was going to go with Meallan at first, but I looked it up, and apparently, it's a male name. I'm off to rename her! Thank you so much!
