I named my oddish Oddium wad...

And my shiny donphan(who rocks in wifi FTW) was named Satan because I caught him from a chain when I had 666 repels left... XP

Where did you got that?
I got Zephyr from the Zephyr badge. Seemed appropriate for a flying type, since the Zephyr Badge is given to you by a Flying Gym Leader.

Hey, that's a really good idea XD
How long did it take you to come up with that. It'd take me ages :(

Yep, I try to give every single pokemon a name, though they aren't always so great. A lot have names with actual thought behind them, but the majority end up named after a random word or song that crossed my mind when they were caught/hatched. Sometimes the box pokemon will get theme names, but not too often. The pokemon on my teams are the lucky ones- they might receive names that were planned beforehand. For instance, in my Diamond team, Twoflower, DeForest, Geordi, and Skip were all pre-decided names, but Kermit, Freddy and Julio were spur of the moment names based on their personalities (or, the personality I saw while battling them).

And in Emerald, except for the starter who got a name themed to match the trainer (Swampert was Garfunkel and Brendan was Simon), my team all had names based on characters in the anime (Jessie, James, Brock, Megumi), but the FR team were all pretty much random. (Bar Onix, who was named after a fellow Brock girl~) Kojiro the Gloom was named 'cause he's blue, just like my favourite cucco, and the rest had names that were more or less the same inspiration-wise. The Yellow team's names weren't so great, though. :\

But I do like a lot of the names that the box pokemon have, and I might post some later.

Which itself gets its name from Zephyrus/Zephyr, the Greek god of the western wind.

I never nicknamed any of my Pokemon. I more like them being called with their original names. But lately, I've been considering nicknaming afew.

or vice versa, naming your Arceus 'Magikarp' (that will caught your opponent offguard) XD

I once rename all my pokemon so that only the 1st letter of their name remains capital (eg. BULBASAUR --> Bulbasaur), but when I finally realize that it's stupid to do so, I actually take the effort and time to change all my pokemons' name back to all CAPS. :p

Don't get the habit now.

But then, when I started pokemon, I didn't know bout evolution, yet was aware of pidgey's evos.

I caught 2, and named them 'pidgeyotto' and 'pidgeyot'. FYI, it's true

I sometimes do that, on the pokemon i usually use alot.
Why can't Nintendo just do that in the first place. eg:
POTION
REPEL
All the itmes and stuff are in Caps lock. Why?

Wow, where to start. I tried to make some of mine sound catchy, but most of them now sound stupid. Some nicknames are just lowercased versions of the actual names.
