    I know it may seem a bit cliche but I find that sometimes the names in other languages are quite beautiful; right now on my Pokemon Black re-run I've got this current team:

    Incendie (Chandelure) It means "Fire" in French
    Vipera (Serperior) It means "Snake" in Romanian
    Povdigane (Conkeldurr) It means "lifiting" in Bulgarian
    Vivamus (Hydreigon) It means "live" in Latin
    Kale (Crustle) It means "castle" in turkish
    Pringles (Jellicent) Simply because he looks like the pringles man hehe
    Think that one is funny. It means bold (no hair) in Dutch


    Just have a few with nicknames:
    Gardevoir: Lily
    Altaria: Aurora
    Ampharos: Levina
    Butterfree: Anakoni
    Froslass: Crystal
    Cinccino: Coco

    This is just the team I like using, have more with nicknames, but that would become a very long list.

    Renaming Pokemon for me is just either naming them after an aspect of tghem (Like how my Serperior is nicknamed Slither) or just a silly name.

    I used to nickname my Pokemon something random. Like, if I felt the Pokemon would suit the name Toothbrush, then sure. If I felt Ro was appropriate, then there was no stopping me from naming it Ro. This went on until maybe 3 months ago.

    Then, it turned into wanting to name them something clever. I wanted their nicknames to be a reference to something. I named my Shiny Cinccino Adele because she had the same hairstyle as Adele did in her Albert Hall Concert, and her hair was almost the same color as her shininess. And I named my Feraligatr Reptar.

    Now, Feraligatr, being the first Pokemon I ever owned (waaaay back in Silver version, where his name was Justin Jr.), will keep his nickname. This is because with my new nicknaming scheme, I can't find the right combination that would sound any kind of attractive.

    But my Abomasnow is now named Aboma, my Musharna is now named Musha, my Nidoqueen is now named Queen, Scrafty is Scraft, and so on and so forth. This is because whenever I'm team building with someone, I abbreviate their names when I talk about them.

    (for example, "So Aboma comes in, sets up Hai, 100% acc" "right
    Lux is dark/ele, right?
    And Eel has ground immunity and no weakness
    What's Luxie's moveset looking like?")

    I feel a bit cheap doing it this way, but I don't know. I feel like since I don't put effort into it, since this is what I naturally call them, I feel like it's actually establishing that personal connection with them. So I'm doing it that way. Even if I feel cheap, like I'm being lazy. @__@

    That wasn't his nickname.it was his name in another language and since it evolved in your game thats why his name changed to beartic.
    and the later ones are from a glitch in GTS.

    My dewott's name is Gershwin. I name them according to circumstance and MY mod, since it's hard to see theirs before reaching some kind of name rater's house. I also named a wild pansear I caught "Magma"

    I have quite a few nicknames I'd like to share. Some are video game/anime references. Others are names based on myths, inside jokes, or just plain stupid. I'll just show my team in White and why I named them that.

    Emboar/Mandrag - The Link to the Past manuals of the SNES version state that Ganon was also named Mandrag Ganon. Since Emboar is a pig, I though it was fitting.
    Zebstrika/Equinox - Named after a grotto boss in Dragon Quest IX which is a black horse and has a lightning based attack.
    Excadrill/Simon - I named this guy after Simon from Gurren Lagann. Drills and Simon. I think it makes sense.
    Zoroark/Link - I thought that Zoroark sort of resembled Link's wolf forme in Twilight Princess. Sort of. If I felt like changing it, I would name him Akuro after the final boss of Okamiden.
    Haxorus/Barbarus - I got a shiny Axew and since it's final evolution is black, I named it after a black dragon in Dragon Quest IX.
    Bisharp/Dynames - This is named after a Gundam in Gundam 00. I was going to use Exia since it fits for, but I thought that Dynames sounded just as cool.
