    I started nicknaming Pokemon when I first did a Nuzlocke. Now, during normal runs, I may occasionally nickname my Pokemon. (I don't have very creative nicknames.)

    Treecko-Geico
    Zubat-Batman
    Tauros-Redbull
    Jigglypuff-Wigglypuff
    Koffing-Smogon
    Bulbasaur-Bulbapedia
    Rattata-Splinter
    Mankey-Beats Mode
    I wish I had a good name for the Pidgey line though.

    I've gotten into the tradition of nicknaming certain Pokemon: Torchic, Lucario...and others I forgot, but it's mostly those I'm willing to keep with me and never release. And if I like the Pokemon's Japanese name better, that's what it's nickname ends up as (my Snivy's nickname is always Jalorda, for it's final evolution). I never nickname legendary Pokemon, though.

    I didn't use to but latelly I've been starting to nickname all my Pokemon. I guess it just gives them a bit more personality.

    Nope. I hate nicknames for some reason. I feel like they should just keep their names

    I didn't used to when I was little (mostly so I wouldn't forget their original names) but I do all the time ever since gen 3. I think it gives them more personality, I mean, when you buy a puppy you don't just call him "puppy" right? Same thing with Pkmn imo. Besides, I think it's weird when I see 2/3 same Pokemon battling named the same and their trainers "GO ____!" at the same time.

    Some of my best nicknames have been:

    Combusken- Mekigo (no idea where it came from)
    Pelipper- Venigra (mispronunciation of 'Venari')
    Spoink- Bakugami (unoriginal, but it fits)
    Espeon- Sol
    Braviary- Nereviaz (no idea either)
    Liepard- Kabegami (I like the Okami gods.)
    This is Bidoof. Many people loathe it with their lives. If you are of the few people who love this little beaver, put this in your sig. Started by Earth Wolf-Howl (formerly Warrior Scolipede)

    I like to give nicknames to Pokémon I will use. Sometimes I give nicknames to random Pokémon I catch too, if I happen to have something cool in mind for it.

    My current White team (right before facing Skyla):
    -Servine: Sir Pent (pun on the word serpent)
    -Whimsicott (came from the NPC trade)
    -Mincinno: Chila (took the chilla from chinchilla, and removed the 2nd L, makes it sound cool I think)
    -Liepard: Catlin (like Caitlin, but without the I for the reference to cat)
    -Panpour: Aap (it's Dutch for monkey)
    -Zebstrika: Blitz Dash (Electric version of Rainbow Dash (and no, I'm not even a fan of MLP...))

    Some random Pokémon in White that I caught that I gave nicknames:
    Patrat: Evileye (cause its eyes make it look evil =O)
    Lillipup: Yodawg (not even gonna explain this one...)
    Drilbur: Pierce (anyone who watched Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann should get this)
    Deerling: Dear (...)
    Joltik: Voltula (volt + tarantula)

    The only Pokémon I never nickname are legendaries.

    I never refrain from using nicknames for my Pokemon. Since I'm usually doing Nuzlocke runs, I name my Pokemon, so if they die, I become sad.

    Some of my faves are: Amanda (Lapras), Zahnrad (Klinklang), Lauren (Marill), Thor (Bulbasaur) and Fafnir (Serperior). I also tend to give them chuckle-worthy nicknames, for instance an Aggron named AbsOfIron.

    Lightbulb Name Rater Thread...Share the cool names you give your pokemon

    I have made it my personal mission to nickname all the pokemon i catch in B2/W2

    So I was curious to what names do you give your pokemon? Do you have a method to naming them or stick to a theme when creating a team?

    I've put meaning in most of my pokemon's names...either i look up the scientific classification of what animal they're based on or i find original latin/greek terms & root words for things that relate to their image...or i simply just play w/ the name they originally have

    so feel free to list some great name ideas you may have or used w/ your pokemon & teams

    ````````````
    I also tried to name a joltik "spaz" recently...but i guess the game thought it was a curse word & wouldn't allow it...i found this interesting...but it did allow me to name it "spazy"...lol
