    After doing some nuzlocke runs, I nickname every single one I catch. I give them random "regular" people names, like Victor the Charizard or Evan the Vaporeon. Or in the case of most of my fighting pokes, I name them after popular fighters. ie Manny (Pacquiao) the Hitmonchan GSP (George St. Pierre) the Hitmonlee & Kimbo Slice the Machop.
    Well met, friend! This is my signature.

    Generally not, but I will for Nuzlocke's. when I was younger, I'd name them human names that started with the same first letter, like... Well, the only one to come to mind is Richard the Ditto.

    Almost always with the pokemon I used in the main party, and my shinies. It kind of gave them a personality and make me like them more.

    I once built a team, nicknaming the Pokemon the names of Pokemon in which they were super effective against just to be a jerk. xD

    No. I never nickname my Pokemon unless I have a name in mind as soon as I catch it that is REALLY good. Otherwise, I don't know why, but I just prefer not to nickname them.

    i usually only nickname some of my EV trained pokemon, assuming i can think of a good nickname. some examples:
    haxorus->DESTROY!!(for destroying everything with outrage after dragon dancing)
    hydreigon->QBD(stands for queen black dragon, would have nicknamed her KBD if shes male, runescape players can relate)
    cloyster->Heavy Arms(heavy arms gundam from gundam wing as my cloyster fire arrays rockblast and icicle spear much like heavy arms gundam firing missles)
    conkeldurr->conk conk(sound made by hitting his concrete blocks on the ground)
    metagross->Fe bomb(Fe is the chemical symbol of iron in the periodic table, bomb because my metagross can explode)

    Yes. Sometimes. No. When I'm in the mood. If i urgggh... want to i errrr... like yeah.

    mmm very interesting responses being collected in this thread.

    Well In my soul silver and white 2 run i nicknamed all my pokemon, all the names were standard like Frank the Feraligatr, Chomper the Pinsir and Benedick the Arcanine but there was one odd one which is also my favorite Badhouse the Magnezone, I also have an El Naso Probopass from my diamond days, I call my HM slaves who can fly courier-original huh?-and other ones Romney's Wife.
    ORAS? I'm excited

    Usually simple single-word things like "Rain" for Samurott and "Shadow" for Reuniclus that describe the general nature of that Pokemon. Occasionally, I do carried away and use a Greek gods theme like "Ares" for Emboar and "Poseidon" for Jellicent. Well, nicknames do help you personalise your own critters - wish in-game trainers would too.

    Always. Keeping their original names seems bland to me. Like for example my Unova Trick Room Team is Gummybear the Reuniclus, Moose the Amoongus, Graves the Cofagrigus, Gawain the Druddigon and Shipfate the Jellicent. I also nicknamed a pokemon Duck Zang after the character from the second book in the gone series(which I love-I own the latest one- Fear) hunger which was a Dunsparce. My shiny male Altaria is also called Daniel after Daniel from the Fallen Series. =) Also as soon as I get to Castelia in White 2 I'll be calling my Shiny Servine Asmodeus(anybody who gets this reference is super awesome).

    I am nicknaming all of my pokemon lately, since it gives somewhat of a personality or humour.
    Examples:
    emboar-bacon
    keldeo-r-so horny
    garchomp-chomper
    and similarities ^^

    It will be in-appropriate but Dicklett for Diglett, and changed it to Dicktrio when it evolved. I watch too much Haydunn....wanted a friend for his Dickpinch.

    Never. I just don't really feel the need to so, no real significance, at least for me.

    I nicknamed my in-game team for the first time in White, and I'll keep the trend going in the future. My favorite nicknames so far are:

    Samurott -> Toshiro (Mifune)
    Chandelure -> Charlotte

    Usually I don't. When I do, they're stupid names, or some that took me 2 million years to find. The main reason I don't nickname my Pokemon, is because I can't find good names. When I do find good names, I will probably forget to name it and be too lazy to go to the name changer.

    Best nicknames

    Gengar --> Satan
    Alakazam --> Jesus
    Ninetails --> Alah
    Snorlax --> NYA NYA NYA NYA NYA NYA NYA (on Po it's all of this, but ingame it's once)
    Dragonite --> Moisčs (this is after my friend, not the one in the bible)

    I nicknamed my Treecko Yoshi in Sapphire and Emerald.

    To get the badge, I nicknamed a few in Black 2.

    Serperior- Schneider
    Cincinno- Goldberg (Rude Goldberg machine)
    Vaporeon- Discure (Disappear and obscure and my favorite nickname)
    Munna- Lunatic
    Baltoy- Fortune
    Signature is under thought consideration.
