    Grapploct - Bruiser - unoriginal, but couldn't think of anything better
    Edit: It just hit me, but I might name the Grapploct Oswald after the old children's show. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?

    Edit: Just realized I should probably say I know that is a lot, but I'm not sure how soon I'll actually play though all of these. The first one I run will be the Grookey team and after I beat the game with it I'll run the Sobble, then Scorbunny teams. Just wanted to share the names I had thought of.

    First post, because I love nicknaming everything, and the leaks have me amped.

    Cinderace - Jumpin' Jack (Flash it's a gas!) for a male, or Lola (Bunny) for a female
    Corviknight - Quoth for a male (Discworld reference RIP Sir Terry Pratchett), Lenore for a female (lots of love for the Raven), or Nevermore as a general for either gender
    Grimmsnarl - Lucifer or Oberon for a male, and Titania or Lilith for a female, Sidhe, Aku (from Samurai Jack) is also an option
    Toxicity - Arsenic (since lead and arsenic compounds are used in car batteries)
    Hatterene - Queenie or Majesty
    Dragapult - either Nighthawk (after the F-117 stealth bomber), or Blackbird (after the SR-71)

    Alternatives:
    G. Rapidash - Mystic, or Amalthea (Last Unicorn)
    Appletun - A. Gothic, Rockwell (Saturday Evening Post artist), or Fresh Baked
    Barraskewda - Tomahawk (missile), or Torpedo

    The people here who intend upon naming their Scorbunny after Gouenji Shuuya/Axel Blaze are valid, and I love you. I myself considered naming mine Axel for a time. Cinderace is the embodiment of the archetypal Fire Element Ace Striker in Inazuma Eleven.

    However, I will always consider Blaziken Gouenji's one and only true Pokesona. Blaziken invented the Blaze Kick, was forged by it, the one true kicking fire starter, Cinderace is a mere imitator, thusly I will be naming my Cinderace after Kozoumaru Sasuke/Basile Hardy aka Gouenji 2 from Inazuma Eleven Ares.
    (That and I don't think Cinderace's personality and demeanor match Gouenji that much, not that they match Kozoumaru a lot either.)

    Since the game takes place in Poke-Britain I'll be using the characters' English dub names whenever I name my Pokemon after Inazuma characters, I'm not gonna stick to that as a theme for all my Pokemon though. So Scorbunny will be Basile if male or Bombasta (Scout character from Inazuma Eleven 3) if female. Technically Raimon Natsumi/Nelly Raimon is a Fire Forward in games where she's recruitable but I don't really feel like she has any major Scorbunny energy.

    I also intend upon naming my Corviknight "Victor" after Tsurugi Kyousuke/Victor Blade if it's male, no real plan for a female one, whatever I feel like in the moment I guess.

    I tend to name my Pokémon based around some kind of theme whenever I play.

    For example, my current team for Ultra Moon are named after Naruro characters and when I did a Heart Gold Nuzlocke I was playing as Red returning from a long journey and taking the place of the Johto protagonist (long story on how I rationalized that in the story) and I named all of his Pokémon after gods.

    PokeMon2.0 Cramorant is too cute for words!

    I might just give all my Pokémon names in the language I’m learning (Bahasa Indonesia). I like to give Pokémon names in other languages.

    Usually I come up with a theme to name all my Pokémon. Fir example, I did characters from sitcoms I watched at the time fir White 2. I’m thinking maybe a Pixar characters but I’m not totally sold on the idea.

    Isn't Morpeko based on a guinea pig or a hamster? Both of those are rodents, not marsupials.
