    I'm kinda on the fence with it. Sometimes when I start a game I try to plan a set theme for my team (and any other pokes I may catch) but I either miss one out and forget, or get bored midway through naming them ^^

    I also like to call some Pokémon names that are puns. One of the best I have is Mia the Fearow.

    I think the most interesting nickname I gave was, DoUEvenLift?, which I gave to my Swampert in Alpha Sapphire.

    I think that name will stick, though, should I ever get another Swampert.

    I always nickname the Pokemon I intend to keep for teams! It helps form a personal attachment, I suppose.
    The nicknames I use vary greatly, but I always try to make them sound cool. If I need an idea, I'll usually look up the names of mythical creatures or use a fantasy generator.
  6. I always named my pokemon, but I usually name them terrible names. (I named my Cyndaquil Quils)

    I find that I have to nickname all of my Pokémon as it helps me to form a closer bond with them. Its just something I've always done :)
