    ADDED IN: Ask for advice on nicknames here as well, please!

    Ask forI have been looking around the area, and have yet to find a topic about Nicknaming Pokemon, not including "nickname help."
    Whenever you catch a Pokemon, you get the chance to nickname your Pokemon. I was wondering if anyone else nicknames their Pokemon, or just chooses not to, and leave it at the Pokedex Name.
    I usually choose not to nickname my Pokemon, except when it comes to Unknown, which I name according to their shape; Unknown A, Unknown !, and so on. ;201-z;

    I give all my PKMN nicknames.

    The ones I intend to trade I give the corniest name I can think of so the tradee will remember it. :D

    I usually give the PKMN I intend to use on my team their (Romanized) Japanese name, I think they sound better than the English ones. But that's just me. ;)

    Stuff from movies e.g. my aerodactyl = starscream, my infernape = rafiki
    My mascot of course i.e. shiny noctowl = displeased
    The one I will always stick with: Butterfree = lowfat (cause its butter free, get it?)

    I dont nickname my Pokemon as I prefer to leave them at their original names. Plus, I'm a horrible nicknamer. I used to have an Arcanine called FurryZebra 0_o

    I rarely nick name pokemon. It defeats the purpose I think.

    I nickname most of my pokemon, sometimes I actually stop playing for half an hour just to make a cool nickname. I mostly use funny names, but lately I'm using "cool Japanese names".
    Like I called my infernape Bokito, which is a Gorilla who escaped from the zoo a week before I started pokemon Diamond. But I called my Staraptor TomaHawX in my platinum playthrough.

    I nickname pokemon I'm going to use for the Frontier or other battles.
    For example: I named my Qwilfish "PuckerUp", Shaymin "DustBunny", Omanyte "DavyJones!", and Milotic "Mirage".

    I've only ever nicknamed 2 pokemon. I named my shadow lugia XD001 just because I thought that name was just awesome, and I used to nickname all my torchics (when I was younger I always picked the fire type, and usually never leveled any other pokemon) Blaze, because there was a rumor that naming it that made it easier to find rare pokemon

    I have been playing Pokemon Gold recently, which I nicknamed my Cyndaquil; Charcoal. However, I once named a Caterpie; OWNAGE!!!!, and a Magikarp; GOD. Get it?

    EDIT: Woot! I evolved in member status!

    I named my Empoleon Pringer X. It's a (epic) reference to Disgaea.
    I'm gonna name my Breloom Umbreloom just because.
    My Crobat is Necrobat. Necro means death in latin, I think.
    I named my pickup pokes Pickup #1 and Pickup #2.

    I saw a Metagross named Metal Gear.
    You see quite a lot of water pokes named Leviathan.

    A shiny Dragonair should be whatever you find suited. Try to choose a nickname that resembles something you like. If you can't choose one, just name it Dragonair.

    I like nicknaming my pokes with cool anime things and random japanese words I come up with.

    My garchomp *shiny* is named RyuuKaze which is Wind Dragon in japanese with an extra u. I also named my trainer Aero D. Ace(Aero Drake Ace) Thats their first middle and last name
  20. Pikachu&Umbreon

    Pikachu&Umbreon Master Breeder

    thats cool, but ratchet needs to be represented by someone smaller and furrier. flareon mayhaps? or growlithe? vulpix? fire types because his weapons usually make things blow up. :)
