    Default Nicknames

    Anyone make up cool nicknames for their pokemon?
    Here are some of mine:
    Blaziken- Aeries
    Sceptile- Congo
    Milotic- Hydroplex
    Metagross- Gilgamesh
    Tyranitar- Chronos
    Salamence- Gankutsuou
    And as I sit and talk to you,
    I see your face grow white.
    The shadow hanging over me is no trick of the light.
    The specter on my back will soon be free.

    I usually give mine normal names based off their English names...

    Occasionally though, I spice it up.. Nosferatu my Crobat is an example.

    I usually don't bother with nicknames, unless it's a Pokemon I'll be trading to another game, then I like giving them stupid names. Here's some of the ones I have/had.

    Peeram- Mareep
    Odd Radish- Oddish
    Dungbomb- can't remember what it was

    Giving my Pokemon names is one of my favorite parts of the games. My naming patterns are completely random, but I tend to draw from natural stuff that fits the Pokemon, mythology, popular culture and anime characters.

    Names I've given my Pokemon:

    Ash, Charcoal, Hermione (different Charizards)
    Marlboro (male Camerupt)
    Hephaestus (male Torkoal)
    Colorado (male shiny Gyarados)
    Qinglong (male Gyarados)
    Rainbow (female Kecleon)
    Remus (male Mightyena)
    Echo (female Gardevoir)
    Soccer (male Glalie)
    Arachne (female Ariados)
    Jessie (female Arbok)
    James (male Weezing)
    Yukio (make Butterfree)
    Ninden (male Ninjask)
    Jack (male Cacturne)
    Icarus (male Pidgeot)
    Tiida (male Azumarill)
    Atem (male Sableye)
    Sunstorm (female Castform)
    Horus (male Xatu)
    Iori (male Noctowl)
    Osamu (male Swellow)
    Masaya (male Manectric)
    Bruce (male Crobat)
    Shakkou (Claydoll)
    Wally and Linda (male and female Pikachu)

    I'd name more but then we'd be here all night. These are just the ones that make me giggle the most.

    Currently, I'm trying to catch a Pikachu with a Light Ball in Emerald. This resulted in thirteen Pikachu, of which three are female and ten have Oran Berries. In a fit of silliness, I decided to name all the male Pikachu (save for one I named L) after characters in Prince of Tennis, in the order of the English alphabet. So I have Akaya (Kirihara Akaya), Bunta (Marui Bunta), Choutarou (Ootori Choutarou), Gen'ichiro (Sanada Gen'ichirou), Horio (Horio Satoshi), Inui (Inui Sadaharu), Jiroo (Akutagawa Jiroo) and Kaidou (Kaidou Kaoru).

    I'm silly and nicknaming Pokemon doesn't do me any good.

    I only name pokemon once they get to level 100. I have no idea what to name my gardevoir, though...(I was thinking Psy Chick or Venus...)

    I had a Salamence named George once. Also a Swampert named Simon, and when I was in middle school, I always had a Nidoqueen named Lavender and a Pikchu named .Sparks. :3 Right now I have a Charizard named Hideki and a Raichu named Sparks... old habits die hard, I guess.

    I don't normally nickname my pokemon, but for MD I've been doing it just to give them some originality.

    Mine too! I've also got a Wurmple named Oikawa.

    I should find something to name Hiroki. Maybe a Growlithe or something.


    Anyway, right now in my LG party I have Jumbo the Donphan, Violet the Tropius, Desmond the Trapinch, Junpei the Lanturn, Yosa the Grimer, and Puka the Pikachu. So my names are kinda across the board.

    I've been thinking about doing that for DP since I'm so used to seeing their Japanese names on here already and I rather like 'em.

    In my Emerald game my team consists of:

    Marshtomp - Kaiser
    Gardevoir - Reef
    Cacturne - Harley
    Vibrava - Travis
    Swellow - Tsubasa
    Torkoal - Toby

    And almost every Pokémon I have in FireRed is named after Yu-Gi-Oh! GX characters, both Japanese and dub XD; The only ones on my team I can remember is Juudai the Charizard, Junko the Butterfree, Motegi the Vaporeon and Thunder the Raichu.
