Due to narcissism, I've decided to make a guide of the nicknamed Pokémon I currently have, and a brief summary of their history.


Pokémon Platinum Pokémon Black 2

Maladroit
I picked him as my Starter for one of my plays of Pokémon Platinum, and he now resides in Black 2. Maladroit is another word for "Clumsy".

Ignis
Ignis is my Starter in Black 2. I had picked Snivy in Black, and tried Oshawott many times, but didn't like it. Serperior is without a nickname, as I didn't start giving names to my Pokémon until slightly before Black 2. Ignis means "Fire" in Latin.

Puerile
It took a long time, but I finally used a Rapiash, and she was useful. She is now in Black 2. Puerile is another word for "Childish".

Permotio
I was surprised by how useful this Pokémon turned out to be. I always assumed that Lucario was a Pokémon you only appreciate after 20 or so Levels, but he turned out to be useful. Like Ignis, he was part of my Black 2 team. Permotio means "Emotion" in Latin.

Beguile
Very disappointed in this Pokémon. I heard nothing but praise of it for a long time, so I decided to train one; bad idea, but it made it to the end. It's in Black 2. Beguile is to charm, but deceive; an accurate nickname of my expectations for this Pokémon, and the end result.

Sustineo
I caught him at the same time I caught Permotio, and even though he flailed at the beginning, he became extremely useful later on. He's rarely used now, but he was very useful while he was on my team. Sustineo means "Endure" in Latin.

Slaver
I assume you know the definition of Slaver. This was a Pokémon that I wanted to use as a Lickitung, but the design was never appealing. Then Lickilicky came out, and I fell in love. He was very useful, and I now have a blinding love for the family. A baby for them would please my inner, and outer, fanboy. Currently in Black 2.

Murena
She's the only female member of my Black 2 team. Bred in Black, and sent over as an egg. She's currently the lowest-levelled of them, and only because she didn't need that extra strength that the others needed. Muren means "Eel" in Latin, and I added the "A" at the end because she was the only female on my team.

Rerikh
After being disappointed by Gardevoir in Generation III, I exiled this Pokémon on the mere association with the useless thing. When I finally used him, he was surprisingly good. Also in Black 2. Rerikh was named after Nicholas Roerich after I saw his "Compassion" painting.

Dulcifer
I bred him in Black, and sent him as an egg to Black 2, because I always wanted to use this Pokémon. He was very useful, even if a bit risky to use, as he was very fragile. Dulcifer, despite it's similarities to Lucifer, means "Sweet" in Latin.

Piauler
I loved the Duskull line, even though I never got to use them. I finally did with that play of Platinum, and Piauler, even though a bit of a letdown, was good at her job. In Black 2. Piauler is French for "Squeak".

Confectrix
I've wanted to use Hydreigon since I first saw it. While not necessarily a disappointment, Haxorus from Pokémon Black was so good that he rocketed his family to be my favourite Dragon family from Generation V. Confectrix means "Destroyer" in Latin.

    Interesting! I usually give them cute names, like Sweatpea for my Emboar. The route you take with this is interesting, though was hoping there would be a little more info as to why some got their nicknames, like your Empoleon.

    I'm also glad someone out there likes Vanilluxe. Poor thing gets a lot of flack >_>

    Most of them come from the Pokédex entries; Piplup often falls while walking, and Ponyta can't stand as a newborn. I'll include those things in the next one; I still have some Pokémon that I want to showcase.

    Yes, Vanilluxe is severely censured for being based off of an ice-cream cone; since when was ice-cream a bad thing?

    @Kyuuketsuki; Exactly! I never though ice cream was a bad thing at all! I say if we can have a Pokeball, a pile of sludge (I still love you, Grimer), a ball of cherries and such that we can have an eerie ice cream cone!

    I look forward to the next blog though!
