    On my Diamond I name every Pokémon, even if I don't use it, in Finnish. For example, my Infernape is called Palo, which means Fire in Finnish.

    Infernape = Palo
    Dialga = Aika
    Bibarel = Turha
    Staraptor = Veren Sipi
    Luxray = Sfhinksi
    Weavile = Kynsia

    Saaatoshi!

    Well, I catch a lot of pokemon, but I only nickname ones that really "matter" to me, as in, I will be using (which means mostly fighting type pokemon, unless I'm doing a theme in a replay (for instance, in a recent replay of Yellow, every pokemon was named after a Radiohead song)or if a name just strikes me). Most of the pokemon follow a Greek or Roman naming-scheme.

    There are a lot, so I will put them in spoilers.

        Spoiler:- team:


        Spoiler:- box bums:


    I also have a lot of pokemon named after the song I was listening to when I caught them.
    I will be on here very, very rarely. The account is not dead, per se, but I will not be on often. This has become a den of hatred, hostility, and anger. It is not the SPPF it was when I joined, and I really dislike coming here. To those of you who were nice to me and were my friend, thank you. Goodbye.

    I believe nicknaming a Pokémon increases its friendliness towards you, so it's always to your benefit to utilize such an option.

    I've given my Pokémon some utterly ridiculous nicknames in the past, but I usually try to make them somewhat relevant to the respective Pokémon's type or personality these days. Recently, I've been on a Gaelic and German derivation kick.

    I see now that the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant; it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.

    Just some clever nicknames i thought of.
    Vanilluxe=Yufu (Fuyu means Winter in Japanese so I reversed it)
    Haxorus=HacknSlash
    Emboar=Bacon (fire+pig=bacon)
    Lilligant=Lilly
    Farfetch'd=Miku (because of the obvious leek)
    Altaria=Luvbi (Luvbi is a nimbi, nimbi sounds similar to nimbus, nimbus is a cloud, clouds are what Altaria's wings look like)
    Umbreon=Midna (Short for midnight also Twilight Princess is a fun game)
    Charizard=YUNODRAGON (Why isn't Charizard a dragon)
    Misdreavus=LittleMiss (Because in Pokemon Chronicles, Marina had a Misdreavus which she named Little Miss
    Volbeat=Hotaru (Hotaru is Japanese for firefly)
    Liepard=Blaze (Because Blaze is a purple cat)

    I don't really have nicknames but when I do they are only for my favorites. They usually have to do with the original Pokémon name or something random:
    Mismagius: Maggie (I love the name Maggie and you can hear the name "Maggie" in Mismagius)
    Giratina: Mr. G (Since his name starts with G and he is my favorite I thought it suited him. It also went with my character that is named G.)
    Dusknoir: Donnie (This was hard to come up with a nickname so I choose my favorite name that starts with a 'D')
    Electabuzz: Elliott (Starts with an 'E' and suited him, I thought)
    Drifblim: Drifline (I, for some reason, thought of Caroline when I saw a Drifblim so I fused the names in my head)

    Honestly I really like nicknames ^.^


    Maggie



    Buddy



    Eliott



    Mr. G



    Donnie



    Drifline



    Genny

    I nickname all of my main team Pokemon. An example would be my White team:

    Samurott- Navy Seals
    Haxorus- Massacre (Dragon Dance + Outrage = Massacre)
    Excadrill- MOLEsted (Mole)
    Unfezant- Masquerade (Male form has a mask and a masquerade is a party with masks
    Elektross- Jazz
    Bouffalant- Fro (he has an Afro)

    For my Meganium...
    Solar + Meganium = Solanum

    And the surprise: Solanum Tuberculum is the latin for potato, and this was completly unnexpected, because like 3 months after naming my Meganium this way in Explorer of Darkness, I was having fun traducting words in random languages, and I found this.

    So do you think Meganium is a potato?

    I tend to name my Pokémon after their Japanese music if it sounds cool. If the name sounds really close to the English name, I'll name it from a cool-sounding attribute of that Pokémon.
    I like Pokémon, nuff said.

    I only named one pokemon was a garchomp I named black star (from the show soul eater) because it has a star on its head ,and because its arms look like one of the weapons he uses. Other than that I never name my pokemon.

    I'm going to nickname my Politoed but I can't think of one at the moment. Any ideas?

    my Lucario Finn after Finn from Adventure time,
    my Zekrom after Bowser because I think they look alike,
    my Typhlosion Volvagia because they're both fiery.

    You could name your Politoed Slippy after Slippy Toad from SF64.

    I always nickname my pokémon.

    I take the first letter of their name (Japanese or English) then I add something behind it.

    For example. Lucario -> Lollipop
    Rottom -> Rice
    Togekiss -> Tea

    I usually always take food as nicknames... But in cases like sudowudoo I'd call it tree :P

    I'm not too strict about nicknames, but since replaying Platinum I've started nicknaming my party pokemon:

    Winston the Empoleon (retired)
    Brenda the Gardevoir
    Ygritte the Froslass
    Rhaegar the Staraptor
    Tyrion the Gliscor
    Zedge the Rotom
    Neptune the Vaporeon

    As you can see, I name my pokes from TV/Book characters, specifically from Game of Thrones and The Maze Runner (Rotom and Vaporeon are the only random ones). And yes, my team looks strange but I like to mix up my party and use pokemon I've never used in-game before whenever I go for another playthrough.

    You could nickname him Frogger, from the classic arcade game.

    When I restarted my Platinum (which I may do again), I started renaming my pokémon for the first time in my career. I don't remember all of them, but my Turtwig was Gigas, due to how he looks as a Torterra. And my machop was Mach I (Mach II, III, IV, and so on would be descendants). Oh! And my shiny bidoof (now bibarel) is Goldpelt.
