    I always use nicknames that are based off planets. For example: I named my Samurott; Mar. My Eelektross; Jupis, and my Excadrill; Vente.

    Ooh another one I like is Behemoth the Venomoth. A behemoth is "anyting of monstrous size or power", and I used a Venomoth competitively once that was actually pretty good. So that explains it, and of course behemoth has moth in it.

    I do name my pokemon, however they usually have bad names. I do have the occasional good ideas, though. I named my Arcanine Hobbes even though Arcanine isn't a tiger... whatever. If anyone gets that nickname, they are awesome.

    Quilava: Typhix
    Arbok: Arix
    Noctowl: Noctix
    Gyarados: Gyarix

    yesness... thats my team so far XP

    I need to dig around for my White teams NNs, but I know they are themed around Kid Icarus characters <.>

    I nickname my Pokemon with names that fit them, like Rosaline the Roserade or Beiken the Emboar.
    With Legendaries, I translate a fitting English word into Japanese. Like magma for Heatran, space for Palkia, or god for Arceus.

    My first shiny Pokemon, which was bred with a 1/8192 chance was Charmander, It's past through several of my games and is now a level 100 Charizard called Dynamite! (got the inspiration from a film called Black Dynamite)

    I nickname most if not all my pokemon, even duds I plan to trade. I once traded a Boldore called Crumbs on GTS and a Ralts named Runaway. Besides that, I have some realitively original names such as Bladevader for my prized Skarmory, Hikoze for my Froslass and Reivier for my Absol.

    You've GOT to nickname your Pokemon. They're your bros. In arms. In combat. In friendship.

    I nickname almost all of my pokemon, excluding legendaries. Even if the nickname sucks, I'll still keep it.

    I nickname my main team, but that's about it.

    As for the names I use, I tend to give them names that I made up, but sound like real names. One example is Rayze, which I actually tend to use for my trainer. Others include:

    Naul
    Maylan
    Bolu

    That sort of thing.

    I nickname my team, depending on their cuteness they get a cute name, or or powerful names for legends.

    Current exceptions:

    DeathWave The Luvdisc
    and CutiePie the Gyarados.

    (Look, I was really tired when I finally got to that damn nickname rater!)

    Sometimes I Nickname a Pokemon a different species name I made for them..

    Cobalion-Athosteel (Athos+Steel)
    Terrakion-Porthoston (Porthos+Stone)
    Virizion-Aramiseed (Aramis+Seed)
    Keldeo-D'Artaqua (D'Argatnan+Aqua)

    These come from the Three Musketeers, and also something to do with the Pokemon's first type.

    Reshiram-Yashiro (Yang+Shiro)
    Zekrom-Yikuro (Yin+Kuro)
    Kyurem-Wuhaiiro (Wuji+Haiiro)
    W-Kyurem-Yanhaiiro (Yang+Haiiro)
    B-Kyurem-Yinhaiiro (Yin+Haiiro)

    From Yin, Yang and Wuji, what these to are based off of, and Japanese for White, Black and Grey! I think you can guess which one. B-Kyurem's is just a straight up combo of the words, but it goes with Yanhaiiro (W-Kyurem) so I'm not bothered.



    Victini-Nikoal (Nike+Coal, corruption of Nichole. Yes I think Victini is a girl )



    Nicknames are a fun way of expressing your personality!

    Well, I usually nickname them the first thing that comes to mind. But my starter, if its a Water Type, is always named Neptune, and the first Dark type I catch is always Pluto. I did a run on Black 2 naming my main Pokemon after planets/roman gods.
    Umbreon(Pluto)
    Samurott(Neptune)
    Gardevoir(Venus)
    Simisage(Saturn)
    Crobat(Mercury)
    Ampharos(Jupiter)
    Arcanine(Mars)
