Nickname Discussion

Discussion in 'General Pokémon Discussion' started by deokishisu.123, Oct 15, 2009.

    Padfootismine Well-Known Member

    Why-Because I like naming Pokemon real names, espically ones that end in 'y' for some reason.

    Scizor: RogueRouge - In Gen 2 my cousin needed help naming her Scizor. I suggested "Rouge Rose" but misspelled it ""Rogue Rose." She's an X-Men fan so it worked out.

    Swampert: DeltaForce - Pun on the Chuck Norris movie and a river's delta.

    Gengar: Ursula - One of my favorite Disney villians. Gengar's not a Water-type but it's personality and body shape match.

    Darkrai: Winnowill - After the "ElfQuest" villianess.

    Shaymin: Cheech - It is a high-flying Grass-type after all.

  4. Kaika

    Kaika Haters gonna hate

    My platinum Team nicknames:

    Prinplup: Pebbles

    They are just random and came to me while nicknaming them, I think they are cute! Except for maybe Missy, who is the only femaile pokemon on my team. They aen't my favorites though, that honor goes to my old Yellow file which my idiot brother deleted to make his own after I told him he couldn't:

    Pikachu: Sparky
    Arcanine: Archie
    Marowak: Bones

    I think now that I have my Yellow back I'm going to try and recreate that team, though I got Cubone and Growlithe in the beginning from my brother doing the Mew glitch so it will take longer this time around... but I <3 Archie the Arcanine

    Species: Dratini.
    Nickname: Haruka.

    Species: Flygon.
    Nickname: Apollo.
    Reason: When a Flygon flies, it's wings make a noise that sounds like music. I thought this was fitting because Apollo is the Greek God of Music.

    Nickname: Susceptor.
    Reason: It's 'Guardian' in latin.

    Species: Lapras.
    Nickname: Alcedonia.
    Reason: It means 'Tranquility' in Latin. I imagine riding on a peaceful sea on a Lapras would be very tranquil.

    Nickname: Cloud.
    Reason: Altaria looks like a cloud when flying.

    Species: Leafeon.
    Nickname: Syn.
