    I recently got an interesting idea to possibly nickname my 'mons after cities, something I don't think I've ever done before. Choosing cities that match might be a bit of a challenge, though.

    Cinderace - Phoenix
    Rillaboom - Okinawa
    Intelleon - Cheltenham
    Aegislash - Olympus
    Corviknight - Baltimore
    Milotic - Milos
    Dubwool - Glasgow
    Grimmsnarl - Dis/Pandemonium
    Galarian Weezing - London

    With me, I'll wait for the games to be released, and then decide on the nicknames for them.

    With all the talk of the themes I'd use to name my pokemon, I ended up naming them after virtues.

    So far, Sobble's name is Reassurance.

    Mr.Fiend She is too precious for this world.

    Considering the wild area is divided up into smaller areas, i consider the smaller areas as an opportunity to catch more pokemon.
    In the rolling fields, i caught Rocky the tyrogue -lv10 and in East lake maxwell through a raid, i caught Tomahawk the natu -lv20 (won't be using him until after beating milo)

    I decided I’d nickname my playthrough team. So far:

    Trevelyan (Drizzile) level 22 (007 Goldeneye tribute)
    Starship (Dottler) level 23 (alien bug Starship Troopers tribute)
    Shade (G-Linoone) level 20 (black and white are shades)
    Death Petal (Roselia) level 23

    If you're going for Starship Troopers, why not go all the way and call it Brainbug?

    Grookey - Rascal
    Stufful - Fazzle
    Galvantula - Charlotte
    Drapion - Timtom
    Togetic - Geno

    Still deciding on the rest of my team. I was originally going to name my Grookey Mongo, but then I saw that he had an Impish nature, and I remembered the book "Rascal" about a raccoon and I thought to myself, this is the perfect name, since it aligns with the beginning letter of his final evo.

    edit: Eevee is out, I like Drapion better. Did not know Galvantula was in, so in honor of the presentation I made on spiders, including him on my team. Still have two openings. Might put Coaloassal.

    I usually like having some sort reference when I nickname for Pokémon, and I name all of the new Pokémon I acquire at least once per species. Based off the first things that come to my head, my planned in-game team’s nicknames are as follows:

    Rillaboom: Kong
    Dubwool: Ramsey
    Hatterene: Irene
    Cursola: Blanche
    Toxtricity: Felicity
    Falinks: Dory

    Nothing’s set in stone quite yet, as these are all just spitballing until I get a chance to play.

    So far I have:

    Funky the Thwackey(Because of Funky Kong and because he makes funky beats)
    Vika the Corvisquire(After the Raven Laguz from Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn)
    ??? the Linoone(Still up for suggestions I have no idea)
    Lucina the Farfetch'd(After Lucina from Fire Emblem Awakening, I was gonna call it Felix after the sword fighter from Three Houses but the first one I encountered was a girl sooo)
    Nephrite the Centiskorch(After Nephrite from Steven Universe, who took the form of a giant centipede for most of the show)
    Would love ideas for Linoone; Cufant and Impidimp when I get there.

    Same here, the only one I will nickname in Shield will be my Galarian Ponyta/Rapidash, which I shall call "Divacorn", and that's just because I don't like the name "Rapidash"
