The Nicknaming Thread

Not open for further replies.

Crimson Fang

Crazed Nostalgia
I have a tradition of naming usually starters-only (Blaze, Pyre, Cinder, etc.) But i've named my fighting team.

Torterra: Razor (in sig. His offspring are Rizer and Raze.)
*********: Madeen (it's a misnomer or whatever. Madeen's a light element summon in FF9, and she's Dark type).
Azumarill: Ayame, then Tenchi (switched genders on me!)
Wigglytuff: Jigg (I was gonna keep her a Jiggly, but...)
*******: Aurion
*********: Dusk

Can't give away my whole team yet. =)

I just nickname my PKMN names that go well with their type.
Blaziken/Infernape: Blaze
Charizard: Flame/Burner
Empoleon/Poliwrath: Bubbles
Torterra: Twiggy
Raichu: Shocker
I nickname my PKMN names like those, it just suits the PKMN.


(Your Adverts Here)
I always uncapitalify names so they're (for example) Empoleon instead of EMPOLEON.

Besides that I've only nicknamed online Pokemon to make them look 'professional'. Mostly it just makes them look sad.

Dracofyre the Salamence
Metaguard the Metagross
Engarde the Gallade
Poryshock the Porygon-Z
Flubbs the Blissey =D
Sazaki the Infernape
Xyarados the...Gyarados. No prize for guessing that.

And more, but I can't remember them.

I like to put an "X" somewhere in all my pokemon's nicknames. (If you know where that comes from, you get a cookie :D )

I have a Scizor named Sa'ix
My Scarm's name is Xefarina
T-Tar as Xuku
Ninjask as Xina
Togekiss as Trixie
and many others

I used to have an Alakazam named Spoons. lol


I used to just give them random names to do with how they looked or their type. Some ended up with disasterously retarded names like "Flappy" or "Rockface". Now I just plan on giving my main team themed names.

I love nicknaming! It is so fun, but makes you a little too attached to your Pokemon. Here are my Teams:

Torterra - Atlas
Prinplup - Prince
Bastiodon - Knight

Torterra - Bombardo
Murkrow - Witch
Rapidash - Wesly
Clefable - Dollface
Lucario - Anubis
Wiscash - Tsunami

I usually nickname Pokemon I have an attachment to, such as the ones that I use to clear the ingame challenges. In my Diamond, only my Gardevoir has a nickname (Eri), but usually I have more than that.
