    For my White 2 playthrough I named all of my team members after characters from Arthurian legend, mostly based off the Once and Future King, not so much Morte de Arthur. So I had

    Arthur the Samurott
    Lancelot the Lucario
    Guinevere the Roserade
    Morgana the Zoroark
    Gawain the Arcanine
    Mordred the Electvire

    When I caught Kyurem and Reshiram, I named them Uther and Merlin, respectively.

    Some more of my Nick-Names. Most of them are Dark Souls Related.

    Murkrow - Velka, Velka is a character from the game Dark Souls known as the goddess of sin and her symbol was the crow.

    Sharpedo - Hoshigaki, named after Kisame Hoshigaki from the anime Naruto, Kisame has a shark -like appearence and his sword's name is Samehada, which translates to Shark-Skin, a refernce to Sharpedos' Rough Skin ability.

    Smeargle - Ariamis, another character from Dark Souls, he created the Painted World within Anor Londo which is loosely based on the Ancient City of Oolacile, and it is said that anyone who draws near the painting will be sucked in forever.

    Zekrom - Kalameet - After the Black Dragon Kalameet in Dark Souls, one of the Everlasting Dragons.

    I always loved nicknames of pokemon. They can tell you a lot about the trainer, and their creativity. I have a lot of interesting nicknames, but I have three favorites.

    Breloom-LOL Punch
    I have no Idea where I got this name, but since this Breloom is a Technician Breloom, he uses Mach Punch. So, when I found him in a Hidden Grotto, I just thought of the name LOL Punch

    Garchomp-Mama Gappa
    I found this guy on a used Diamond version, so it isn't my creation for a Nickname. She had perfect IVs(As I later found out), but at the time, I knew she had great stats, so I used it a lot, and the name stuck on me. Ever since, I have named every Gible Mama Gappa, yes even males. The name has endured ever since

    Kingdra-Pwny
    A mix of the words Pwn, since Kingdras pwn, and Pony, since it's a seahorse. Get it Pwny, pony. Ahahahaha...ha...ha...I'll just shut up now.

    I give them nicknames like... Fishstick/Seafood/Salad.. Mostly based on their names or color. Or what kind of animal theyare based on etc c:
    There is no upperhand hand, I'm giving you mine. It doesn't have to end up wasting your time. There's things that I could say, here in my way. I wanna let you know, that it's all okay.

    I have never gave a nickname to any of my Pokemon and I've been playing the game since it first came out.
    Nicknames just don't appeal to me for some reason.

    Hmmm, I nickname almost all my Pokémon. I'm pretty proud of Serephin the Growlithe, Kieth the Buizel, Caroline the Charizard, Masamune the Shiny Braviary, Raj the Shiny Staraptor, and many, many more. Might post a few more of my nicknames!

    Yui, a Female Reuniclus
    It reminded me of an anime character plus i was out of names ^^;
    Tsubaki, female Lilligant, again reminded me of an anime character and plus, why the heck not
    Knife, male Bisharp, because it looks like it is wielding one, but it's a Gentle nature, (which I wouldnt expect from something so dangerous as a Bisharp D: ) so i went with something a little less threatening ^^;
    Fluffee, a female Whimiscott, its so fluffy im gonna die!
    Mask, a female Zoroark, its ability is the reason why xD
    And, finally,
    Supaku, a male Zebstrika, Supaku means Spark in japanese

    Those are some good nicknames on my White game ^^; but i put most of the pokemon i listed into the PC ( D: ) for purposes

    Back to shiny hunting!!

    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).
