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.
- GPD Rules and Serebii Forums Rules still apply.
- 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.)
- No Pure Team listing. You can't just post a list of Pokémon with their nicknames, you most comment on them.
- Rude and Offensive names/teams are not allowed. You can earn infraction points and your post edit or deleted.
- 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))
- 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.
- 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.)
- "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)
- Only a single Pokémon Smiley per nickname. The Faces are allowed as they're symbols in the games.
- 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
