Just my starter.
I think in Pearl, I nicknamed my Turtwig "Mickey...that was my first Pearl run though.
In White, my Oshawott went through several names. First, it was Cindy. Then Dawnette after an old friend of mine. Now she's Tiffany.
When I was younger I always nicknamed them things. I stop doing it recently though.
Gotta catch em all!

I usually nickname pokémon that are on my team or if I have thought of something clever prior to catching it.

I have claimed Empoleon, Rosalina, and Super Mario Galaxy!
It really depends for me. If I'm on PS, I usually name them stuff that's funny like Spidermonkey the tentacruel.
If anybody gets that joke, ur awesome.

I always nickname my Pokemon I intend to use. Even if I cannot come up with a good name on the spot I still give it a placeholder nickname until I either get used to it or come up with a better one.

Hey there.......recently nicknamed my milotic ----> aqauqueen...
Only when I battle on Wi-fi. Can't be bothered when I'm on a standard playthrough.
Very rarely. I usually get sick of the nickname after a day or two...
I normally don't, but with this new run through that I'm doin right now, I decided that every single Pokemon I caught, I would have to think of some witty pun.
Flaaffy - Holy Lamb
Samurott - Wottah
Sandslash - ur shrew'd
Ducklett - Thanxgivin

Legendary battle would be epic :3
I used to hardly ever do it, only notable ones were my Charmander in FireRed, Cyndaquil in Silver and his spiritual successor in SS. Since White I've started nicknaming all the Pokemon I catch, (except legendaries). Even though I'm never gonna use the majority of them, just makes it a little more personal. Hasn't helped with learning the names of the new Pokemon much though. Played over 50 hours of the game and still couldn't remember to species name of several of my team members the other day when I was updating my signature.
Sometimes I do.

I nickname most of my pokemon if I'm actually going to use them on my team. Or if they give me trouble while catching them, they're gonna get a bad name. My liepard is Mewmew, zebstrika is Zeebs, musharna is Fetus, swoobat is Batty, and I can't think of the others off the top of my head. lol
I try to, but sometimes it get to the point I end up staring blankly at the screen because I can't think of anything.
Rarely, unless i think of something witty or creative.

I never used to give nicknames but ever since Black and White I only give some of my favorite Pokes names based off video games.
Blaziken: Ken from Street Fighter
Rotom: Wilmguard from Knights in the Nightmare
Braviary: Garuda One from Ace Combat 6
Metagross: Edelweiss from Valkyria Chronicles
Always. I try to be clever, or at least what I think is clever.
I like Metagross, and I used to claim it!
Spheal with it.

I always name my Pokemon. Can't imagine not doing it. Just wouldn't feel right. All those Pokemon in my sig? They all have names. <3 Carefully planned too.

When I first started Pokémon when I was five, I never named my Pokémon. Now, I always name the Pokémon I use for my teams. My favorite nickname for one of my Pokémon would probably Shuya, I name I gave to my Lucario. It's named after the main character in the novel, Battle Royale.

Yes, but only the ones from my main team.
It's a pain to nick every single pokemon you catch.
I name my Pokemon after medications (legit):
Five points to anyone who can guess what type of meds these are without cheating!!
