If you are a true Swiftie (a Taylor Swift fan) like me and not scared to show it, "Drop Everything Now" and copy and paste in your signature.
I don't normally, unless it's something that makes sense for them, or a pun (Female Damp Jellicent nn SO MOIST).

Dare to battle me?

No I do not nickname them for the only reason that it already have a name.
I would also take so much time to find the good name, I fortunatly know myself.
Oh my Feebas !

Spoiler:- My Hunts and Shinies:
I like to nickname my Pokémon because I see them as sort of like pets, and you don't really call a dog "dog" or a cat "cat", so why call a Pikachu "Pikachu"? I remember that my first ever Pokémon, Mudkip, was called Muddy!
I'm still deciding what I should call my Froakie, any suggestions??
Magikarp used splash! It's a one-hit KO!
I do. The ones I am going to use in my party. I don't really like having Pokes that are not nicknamed in my party. Not sure why. I didn't start nicknaming Pokemon until I played Gold...
I love themed nicknames. Although maybe naming all the pokemon on my first (so far disastrous) Nuzlocke after Hunger Games characters was just tempting fate...

It's almost an obligation for me to nickname Pokemon - I give about 90 percent of my Pokemon nicknames. I often come up with witty nicknames - many are humorous (llike Squidward for male Octillery), and a few actually reference celebrities (I have a running gag of naming female Hippowdon Rosie after Rosie O'Donnell. Guess why). I often give Pokemon human names - particularly if they're female. Sometimes the names are meaningful - my Zebstrika in Black was nicknamed Electra. I also use a lot of Italian names for their nicknames because Italian is my favorite source for personal names.
I only nickname in Mystery Dungeon, mainly because I find it implausible that a human would be named 'Riolu' or after another pokemon.
I do now. I never used to, and hated the idea but lately it's grown on me and I even look up translations of other words to make it sound cool. I named my Ursaring Hageshi=fierce and plan to name my Zekrom from BW2 Hiraishin=Flying thunder god (The 4th hokage's space time jutsu)
I don't really name my in-game Pokemon (though I'll finally be breaking that tradition in Gen6 by naming the Fennekin I'll start with after myself), but I've named many of my post-game/EV-trained Pokemon. However, I tend to not do so until I have a name in mind that I know I won't end up disliking later on.
I've never really liked nick naming my pokemon. I just like their actual names. I had a friend that would nickname his pokemon and one that I can remember was Superdude the Squirtle. That always made me chuckle.

Most of the time.
Sometimes i forget, but i always go to the name rater if that happens.
Its really fun making up names for Pokemon (especially on Nuzlocke)
I always nickname, usually with a theme however, but sometimes fully random.
For instance: In White 2; I have Isaac the Serperior, Memento the Chandelure, Marcus the Espeon, Ben the Eelektross, John the Quagsire, and Sherlock the Swellow. (All are named after musicians accept Memento and Sherlock.)
I only NN my favourite guys
Hercules the Dragonite
Medusa the Hydreous
Wally the Quagsire
Orbit the Shinx
Unfortunatly I never got to use my best name
Barbie the Qwilfish turned out to be a boy so had to be spike..... ;-;
I don't, but I thought about it once. I prefer when they stay as the specie name. It's more simple like that and there is no troubles after !
❝Don't ever take your eyes off me.❞
Yesness.. just recently started in fifth gen :3 from there I moved to Firered/Sapphire and XD and have been nicknaming my pokemon X3 Its nice ^_^ Well before I thought it just ruined the Pokemon for some reason <_>
Fire and Lightning Race Across the Heavens
For me, it depends on how I feel. If I want to go all the way with my team, and train them hard I usually give my MVPs(Most Valuble Pokemon) nicknames. I also nickname all of my shinies.
I have claimed Hypno:
MM: Noibat, Tyrunt
I only name my pokémon on special occasions. For example, I named the Scyther that lost me the Bug Catching Contest 'loser'.
