Thread: Nickname your pokémon?

    I hope I'm not the only one who doesn't bother naming their Pokemon. It just seems so weird when they say things like "Bruce is paralyzed, it can't move" or "Your Bruce has evolved into Grotle!"

    Yeeeahh....

    That's why you come up with good nicknames.

    I'm not clever enough for nicknames... plus I really love their regular names! I want the medal from it though, so I keep thinking I should nickname the non-evolving pokemon with their regular names, haha.

    {the rest, I haven't decided on yet or trained far enough.}

    Why in the hell would you nickname your Pokémon as "Bruce"?

    Usually I nickname now. My regular theme is Harry Potter characters, basing each name on animal and gender.

    For example, my Samurott is Hermione, because it's a female otter and Hermione's patronus is an otter.
    I am not worried, Harry. I am with you.

    I almost always nickname my Pokémon, especially my team. On several occasions though, I also think of quick nicknames for other Pokémon I catch and plan on keeping. Pokémon to me aren't just useless pixels just for the Pokédex. With almost every Pokémon I plan on keeping, I always nickname them, train them slightly, and so on. Not so much, but at least a little bit.

    I tend to nickname all of them, in relation to their real life species, habits, personality, gender, itself, etc.

    Some oddities iclude naming a Leavanny Keyboard though.

    I don't often nickname unless I have some meaning to it... or if i think of something i think is cleaver :P
    Examples:
    Absol named Draya
    Honchkrow named Bassy (if you watch Kuroshitsuji you would get it)
    Haxorus named Lizzie Borden
    I couldn't be bothered thinking of any others :P

    Charlotte is an option. And what about Chantal? It's a nice French name for a girl, and also hints at the ghost type Elite Four member Shauntal and her Chandelure.

    I don't really use nicknames...I just don't like them too much. Maybe once in a blue moon if I can think of one.

    Chantal is a pretty good option too. Besides, I like the Shauntal reference since she's my favorite Unova E4 member. There's also the name Chantelle, which sounds nice as well.

    I NNed my Archeops "Archangel" and my one of my Chandelure "O++O" and another "Luster".

    Needless to say, I'm not very good at it.

    ah , what an unsightly existence ! / illustration : cyawa

    Ahh, nicknames! I don't usually nickname my Pokemon, but here are the ones I've used:

    Vulpix (M)- Kyubi (a male nine-tailed fox)
    Vulpix (F)- Kitsune (a female nine-tailed fox)
    Snivy(M)- Solid (I think you get it.)
    Eevee (M) (I have several, so here are all of them.) Umbra (later an Umbreon), Flare (later a Flareon) , Voltra (later a Jolteon), Frozos (now a Glaceon)

    And here are the ones I'll use once I get the right gender of the specific Pokemon:

    Lucario (F)- Lucaria (sounds more fitting for a girl Lucario)
    Eevee (F) (again, more than one) - Espee (later an Espeon), Aqua (later a Vaporeon), Flora (later a Leafeon)
    Charizard (M, Shiny)- Nightfire
