    Post Do you nickname your pokemon

    Official by Nutter t.kk

    Nicknames are sign of Uniqueness, make you Pokémon stand out from the crowd.

    This is the place to discuss your Pokémon's nicknames.

    I've created this thread after many starting threads about them.

    Rules:
    1. GPD Rules and Serebii Forums Rules still apply.
    2. When Listing your Pokémon please give reasons behind the name. - For Example: Decker (Named after the main character in "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?" by Philip K. Dick, as it's line are all Electric Sheep.)
    3. No Pure Team listing. You can't just post a list of Pokémon with their nicknames, you most comment on them.
    4. Rude and Offensive names/teams are not allowed. You can earn infraction points and your post edit or deleted.
    5. You can talk about the nicknames Pokémon you receive in trades. (Example: KENYA - Why did Webster named his Pokémon after a African country? (This is an ingame "trade" in HGSS))
    6. If the name features letters not common to US/UK Keyboards. You should post a Translation, as not all Visitors can see Non-english Characters.
      1. For Korean and Japanese names: Please state the how it sounds in "English" - :052: かット (Cat or more accurately Kaatu) - English word "cat" written in Japanese.)
      2. "Dingbat" characters (☺♀♂♠♣♥♦) should be treated like Japanese names, as you can "type" almost all of them as they appear in game. You can use a Windows program called Character Map (installed with most copies of Windows), or copy paste from other places for these ones that you can't type. Mac and Linux users could have similar Program to Character Map. (PM Nutter t.kk to tell him about them, I do have access to those Os, but I don't use them often) So ☺♀♂♠♣♥♦ is (Simley face) (Female) (Male) (Spades) (Clubs) (Hearts) (Diamonds)
    7. Only a single Pokémon Smiley per nickname. The Faces are allowed as they're symbols in the games.
    8. Do not ask for help with the games.


    Just for convenience. Here is locations of all known Name Raters.


    • Lavender Town in Kanto
    • Goldenrod City in Johto
    • Slateport City in Hoenn
    • Agate Village in Orre
    • Eterna City in Sinnoh
    • Castelia City in Unova


    The Orignial post below



    so do you nick name your pokemons??
    if yes let people over here know the best of the nick names you have given...

    Yes, I do nickname my Pokemon because I believe that you create a special bond with the Pokemon and it also makes it different then other Pokemon.

    Sometimes I do, but I've yet to do so for my White 2 game. Just haven't really felt the need I guess. Except for the Tranquill I caught, but it's not a very nice nickname. I was frustrated with it at the time...

    It's after Duck Zhang from the 'GONE' series by Michael Grant. Duck is a boy who is nicknamed the Human Drill because he can control his own density, allowing him to sink through the ground (or float away, but that's less relevant.)

    Dude I love that series! I still didn't get the reference though(x
    Within my lifetime, I've done a lot of walking. I started my journey walking on a little path called Route 1. Little did I know that walking down that route would lead me onwards to a road that went by the name of Victory. Just west of Victory Road, I walked up an entire mountain where atop stood a silent trainer who was one of the mightiest I had ever faced. I've walked, through sandstorms, across the hard desert of Hoenn. I've walked through pelting hail, across the snow covered terrains of Sinnoh. And now as I look back on all my travels I find myself walking across the Skyarrow Bridge of Unova. It took a lot of walking through tall grass patches to get where I am today...But it was worth the walk.

    No, because I'm not so good at creating nicknames, but I have already nicknamed some.

    Just depends really. Most times I do not, can never come with any creative nicknames honestly. If I do name them I will usually use the Japanese name or some comic book character.

    Nope, I've never nickname'd any of my Pokémon, and I don't plan to.

    Nope. I've always wanted to but I can never think of what to call them and that's why I don't.

    Try looking up Pokemon naming themes, they are fun to do, Im pretty sure there is a forum on this website with pokemon naming themes, I'm sure you can find a good naming theme if you can't figure out names for your pokemon. I tried out naming themes like naming them after super heroes, or Greek gods, or even after species of birds like Marrialnd did in his Black Wedlocke. Or you could name your pokemon after sports mascots, like Tiger, Titan, RazorBacks, and more. I really hoped this helped you

    Most definitely, It's a requirement for me to create creative names for my creatures! The only exceptions are legendary Pokémon to keep their respectable status!
    Pokemon X: 1435 - 4013 - 1487 (,,)

    I am searching for the following Pokemon
    (Modest), (Modest), (Hasty/Naive), (Timid/Jolly/Hasty/Naive), (Timid/Modest), (Jolly/Adamant)

    I can provide you with the following Pokemon…
    (Timid), (Jolly), (Timid), (Rash), (Bold), (Careful), (Relaxed with Seismic Toss).

    I’m also offering a legit Shiny Foongus. Looking for a good natured shiny in return!

    If I'm using a Pokemon in my team or I might use it, I give it a nickname. My favorite nickname I've given one of my Pokemon is St. Elmo, my Eelektross. It's been named after the weather phenomenon, "St. Elmo's Fire."

    I usually name them, because it gives them something personal. Their identifying names feel somewhat boring and dull compared to names you can give them The one I always give to my tentacool/tentacruel is ACoolTent or ACruelTent which is just a bit of letter changing but that's how it is.

    I don't exactly nickname all of my Pokemon but I do nickname some Pokemon that I imagine with a certain voice of another fictional character such as Bartz for my Flareon. Named after Bartz Klauser from Final Fantasy V. Or Asbel for my Jolteon. Named after Asbel Lhant from Tales of Graces.
