Well, here are my names:
Darmanitan (Fiery Dk, he looks like Donkey Kong, except he's on fire.)
Samurott (SUSANO, after the famous samurai of Japanese mythology)
Sawk (Bruce, after the fighter Bruce Lee)
Archeops (NightWing, it just seemed like an awesome name)
First I'd like to say that I'm a fan of a lot of the nicknames on this thread. =)
Mine are always thematic. I tend to only NN the pokemon I'm going to use on my team, whether it's the same 6, or 15 that I switch in and out. But I never name my prized shinies. My 2 favorite pokemon are Croconaw and Pidgeotto (for sentimental reasons, competetively, different story lol).
A team named after fighters (Dewott -Shogun)
A team named after musicians (Bisharp - Slash)
And one for kicks, Jersey Shore lol. My favorite is my female Ryperior named Snooki =b
Serperior= Leaf (i tend to do this for my starters) 4
Zebstrika= Tron (hehe) 7 (quite good link)
Darmanitan= Norris (for obvious reasons XD ) 9 (xD nah)
Carracosta= Bently (Sly Cooper shoutout) 7
Haxorus= Lumberjack (derr) 2
Golurk= Sentinel (what he reminds me of) 3
I always name my Dragonites Lucky because that is what I named my 1st ever Dragonite. I do it in honor of that Dragonite because it is stuck in my red version (I never started a new game in it) and I cant get it into the recent one.
I am a big fan of the Breath of Fire games and those are based around dragons so whenever I get a Dragon or something that looks like one, I will name it after one of the Dragon gods from that game. For example:
When I got my Serperior in my most recent playthrough I named it Cho Ryong after the grass dragon.
I'm also really good at making up nicknames so if you have a problem coming up with one let me know and I'll be happy to help
I've never really used nicknames, but there was one time where I tried to come up with some clever nicknames for a team. I ended up naming my Emboar "Fluffy." I love big, powerful-looking things to have cute names.
Once Keldeo event is realesed im gonna name it MyLittlePony because basically he is a pony. maybe i could name it Rainbowdash because of it's blueish colour or Rarity, can anybody tell me wich would be better? Rarity or Rainbowdash?
