    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.

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

    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.

    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.

    For example:

    Flaaffy - Holy Lamb
    Samurott - Wottah
    Sandslash - ur shrew'd
    Ducklett - Thanxgivin

    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.

    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.

    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

    etc.

    Not really. I've always wanted to nickname them but the problem is actually coming up with something, ya know?

    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.
    Well, except the 6th gen pokes.. x)

    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.
