It's funny I was just recently noticing how my nickname style has changed over the past 10 years. My early games tended to be Pokemon with -er on the end based on type and appearance such as Flamer (Charizard/Blaziken), Sparker(Pikachu), Slasher(Zangoose), etc. I then started using names I thought were particularly cool at the time such as Wildfire (Rapidash), Tsunami (Gyarados), and Shockstar (Zapdos). In White I named a lot based on mythological figures such as Vulcan (Emboar) or mythic names like Orcrist (Haxorus-A sword mentioned in The Hobbit).
Black 2 I used almost entirely Russian place names, animal names, or names of former Soviet Republics, such as Lyagushka (Poliwrath-Translates into frog) even using Putin as my character name. Finally in X/Y I continued to use names I thought sounded cool like Firedrake (Charizard) as well as a few French names to represent the Kalos region like Espirit eau (Rotom-Translates into "water spirit"). Also the two games I haven't nicknamed much (except for maybe 3-4) are one of my two Firereds and Platinum. In my other Firered I caught a new batch of Gen 2 Pokemon in the Sevii Islands and named them after Confederate Leaders in the US Civil War (although I'm glad the North won).
