    literal trash Kaiser (please refer to me as this)

    I named by Budew (soon to be Roserade) in Platinum Elise after Elise from Fire Emblem Fates, since both Elise and Budew are wholesome, innocent and pure in my opinion, and also her title in FEH is Budding Flower, which Budew certainly is one.

    Any cool nickname ideas for Passimian? I got a perfect one awhile back from breeding and still can’t think of a good name :/ Perhaps I should mention it’s not shiny.
  7. TokoyamiTheDark

    TokoyamiTheDark The Purple Karakasa

    My nicknamed mons' names depend on how I see them fit in which media, always led by my Solgaleo(Sun) Lunala(Moon) & Necrozma (both as I do not have US/UM.. Too similar to the originals). Some can be funny :p

    Beedrill - Stingmon (shiny, can Mega Evolve)
    Braviary - Aquilamon
    Charizard - WarGreymon (mega evolves into X, still trying to hatch a shiny via Masuda method)
    Feraligatr - ExVeemon
    Ariados - Shadow (not the hedgehog!)
    Galvantula - Venus
    Aegislash - Master Sword
    Alolan Muk - Master Belch
    Staryu - Starman (shiny, NOT gonna evolve it since its name is based from EarthBound, not Mario)

    I always nickname my teams, but I've found some Pokemon are harder to give decent nicknames than others. Some of my favourites are:
    male Chesnaught named Reinhardt, after the Overwatch character
    male Clawitzer named Pinchy, in reference to that Simpsons episode where Homer gets a pet lobster named Pinchy
    female Pyroar named Savannah, because was the best female name I could think of for a lioness that's not a name from The Lion King
    male Gogoat named Capricorn, after my star sign
    female Sylveon named Sakura, after the flower
    Golurk named Gipsy Danger, after the robot from Pacific Rim
    male Mudsdale named Bojack, after Bojack Horseman
    female Alolan Raichu named Malia, after Hawaiian pro surfer Malia Manuel
    male Skarmory named Metalhawk, after the Transformers character

    I usually nickname most of my Pokemon in the mainline games. I've nicknamed a few in GO. I think my favourites so far are an Ampharos I named "DeanAmpharos" as a play on then WWE wrestler Dean Ambrose and a Shellos named "Chev" after Jason Statham's character from Crank, Chev Chelios
