    How do you know so many types of lettuce?

    I thought the same thing. I think Google. Anyway... I started giving pokemon proper names in w2. My oshawott was Otto, electivire volt and so on and so forth. I wanted to go from silly names to more sensible ones. Not sure why though?

    I'm only listing my favorite pkmn's nicknames.
    I don't really like nicknames on pokes, and yet my shiny Blissey's called Happinas, because of it's japanese counterpart's name. #originality

    I've developed a horrible habit of naming at least one pokemon on my team "Petrel" and they're normally Crobats LMAO

    So far i've had
    Crystal: Crobat (Petrel)
    Platinum: Leafeon (Petrel)
    HG: Crobat (Petrel)
    W: Serperior (Petrel)
    B2: Crobat (Petrel)

    ...I need help

    But other than my strange executive obsession I normally name my team after songs, bands + video games or just words I generally find cool or fitting.
    My latest name was "Caviar", given to my shiny Kabuto. uwu ((double barrel, It's a song by the Icarus Line and it's kind of relevent because it's a fish and it came out of an egg)).

    and this is where you brought me?"

    Does the name Petrel mean anything to you?
    i've taken to naming all my Crobat Batbat( creative I know). Most of my names are just something random that I was thinking about when i caught it. Like, my Sandslash is named Goli and I have a Blastoise named Gill.

    I make it a note to not reuse my nicknames, personally.

    Even if I use the same species of Pokemon in multiple games, I give them a different name in each one, even if they're the same gender.

    All of the pokémon I train for some special reason have nicknames, as well as anything I use for in-game teams, and I have the horrifying habit of nicknaming at least the first pokémon of a species I catch (except for legendaries).
    Currently on my Black playthrough I got:

    Cezanne the Servine (didn't knew what to name starter, looked at computer's desktop, saw a jpg of a painting by Paul Cézanne)
    Dali the Herdier (I don't know why but Lilipup's evolutionary line makes me think of Salvador Dalí)
    Sari the Scraggy (the colors reminded me of Sari Sumdac from TFA)
    Abigail the Swoobat (used to be named Numbuh 5, don't really know)
    Prozac the Musharna (yeah...)
    Ruskin the Mawile (kinda like what happened to Snivy, this time I was checking something about Architecture)


    Other pokémon (with nicknames I like) that are currently boxed:

    Magnus the Sawk (seemed as serious as Ultra Magnus)
    Bebe the Smoochum (just sounded like a cute name)
    Plus some others I can't remember right now.

    I got a shiny Charmander and I named it "Riley". It's a reference to The Boondocks character Riley lol. It makes sense to me because in the Anime, Charizard is a deuchebag and in The Boondocks, Riley is a deuche too and they both have fiery personalities. Plus, and I hope no one sees this as rude or something, but they're both dark skinned.
    I wanna be... The very best... No, but seriously, I just wanna catch 'em all.
    Also an aspiring competitive player

    Add me so we can use each others friend Safari's (I'm Ghost type btw)

    Due to its best use (Technician-boosted STAB Bullet Punch), I have decided to name my Scizor Mr. Lapua. Also, in a last-minute thing before the April VGC, I named my Drizzle Politoed Frogger and my Ludicolo Mr. Pinap (because it looks like a Pinap berry).

    When I play 3rd gen games and choose Torchic(not often because I hate Blaziken's design), I always name it ME ROOSTA, which is a play on the meme Me Gusta.

    Also, my Ferrothorn is named MC Hazard (MC Hammer), my Typhlosion Pompeii(city that was destroyed in volcano), and my Espeon Trampoline(it has Magic Bounce). Oh, and my Magnemite is named GLaDOS because come on, they look the same.
    I have discovered what a signature is.

    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 Warrior Scolipede

    I've claimed Castform. It will never rain on my parade.

    "Hematite" might work. It's a type of iron ore named after the Greek word for blood because it's reddish, like a shiny Ferrothorn. Alternatively, you could just go with Fergus, because it sounds cool.

    On an entirely unrelated note, my "side team" on PMD3 consists of Maple the (female) Leavanny, Nixon the (male) Krookodile, and Rhodes the Golurk, with the last member rotating depending on the V-wave.

    I don't nickname pokemon, i know it sets them apart from the rest but it seems tacky to me. I don't know thats just my opinion..
    GO ON YOUR OWN!

    I've got a thing against people who like Psychic types. I live by the rule; Never trust anyone who's main Pokemon is a Psychic Type.

    Most of the time I nickname my pokes. They are mostly random names...sometimes I think of some really good ones that match the pokemon fairly well. :-)
    My favorite nickname as of now is my Lucario nicknamed Canvas, because I'm an artist. It was a really cute name when Lucario was a Riolu and I still love the name for my Lucario.
    I also love the following nicknames of some of my favorite pokes...

    Dash the Arcanine
    Fanza the Weavile
    Toasty the Scizor
    HydroPurge the Kingdra
    and I used to have a Gengar nicknamed Melon.

    A very fun feature indeed.

    In Gens 1-4, I removed all the stuff in capitals ('Player STALIN sent out VAPOREON' turns into 'Player Stalin sent out Vaporeon')

    Additionally, I call my enchanced Regigigas 'Regiking', my Ninjask with 4 OHKO moves and No Guard 'Ninjohko' and my Spiritomb w. Wonderguard 'Wondertomb' (duh). My hacked Battle Tower team.

    In Black 2, I named my Tepig 'Bacon' and my Lanturn 'Apollo'. I thought 'Bacon' was kinda funny at the time and I named Lanturn after reading somewhere that it may have been inspired by the Greek god in mythology.

    In Black 2 I have...

    Waverider the Samurott
    GhostLight the Chandelure
    Spike the Ferrothorn
    Shadow the Lucario
    Frostbite the Beartic
    Shocker the Magnezone.

    Not on my team at the moment are Dark Lady the Mandibuzz, Lady Venom the Scolipede, and Flicker the Shiny Darmanitan. I also have a habit of naming some pokemon as I catch them, but I can't remember all of them off the top of my head.

    AntiScizor the Heatran if you're playing competitively. Or ChompSucks the Weavile in-game, for those who hate Cynthia's Garchomp.

    I always nickname my Umbreons "Melancholy" and my Espeons "Joy." Also once named my cyndaquil "Arthur." Because he sot of looks like a flaming aardvark mouse.
