    Default What have you named your Pokemon?

    Anyone wanna share?

    I named a female Bellsprout BelleFleur. An Ekans Slytherin. As soon as I catch a rock Pokemon, espeically an Onix, it'll be Pietro, or Petra. A Sentreck, I can't make up my mind if it should be Bunny or Usagi. I named it Bunny, but I might catch another one to name it Usagi. A Pidgey named Birdbrain. I'll come up with even better names. :D

    I went through a Blue Dragon phase awhile back, so in Diamond I have Shu the Infernape, Jiro the Honchkrow, Kluke the Staraptor, Zola the Medicham, Hanmalon (This was before his name was dubbed), the Roserade, and a PBR Raichu I call Cynthia even though she doesn't actually have a nickname, obviously.

    I also have Capn'Paul the Luxray. I think he'd be less then flattered, but that's after the guy on Whale Wars. Well, I was watching it when he hatched. XD

    Last but not least I can't forget Susan the Vulpix, Edmond the Piplup, Lucy the Shinx and Peter the Monferno...

    I always name my Pokemon after their Japanese counter parts. If I'm going to evolve them to their final evolved form, I'll name them after that. It's mostly my way of making sure I remember the Japanese names.

    I get my names from anime characters, game characters, Disney characters, and foreign words.

    Examples:

    Serena the Persian (after Sailor Moon's English name)
    Zelda the Gardevoir (after Princess Zelda)
    Ariel the Vaporeon (after Disney's mermaid)
    Estrella the Staraptor (estrella is Spanish for star)
    My URPG stats: Maya's status

    SuBuWriMo status: 28,103 words in all!

    lolThat's a GREAT idea! And I'm naming my Sentrek by her by Serena's Japanese name, Usagi. And I think they called her Bunny in the manga, too. Rats! Now I'm sorry I named Bellsprout BelleFleur, I should have named her Makoto or Lita. Or maybe even just Kino. I should start a Sailor Moon team.

    My main one, Blaziken is called Fouler
    I called my charmander in Firered Charla, after Liza's. My male charizard in Pearl is named Scorch after Scorch from lost vikings.
    Salamence is called Yevaud after the dragon from Earthsea.
    Dragonite is called Tiamat.
    My female Weavile is called Haru, I find weavile cat like so named after Haru from the cat returns.
    Shiftry, called it Tengu, maybe could have been more creative.
    I called my male Exeggcutor Tulip

    I nickname all my Poke`mon, even the one's I get in trades that don't have names.
    I can't name them all, haha, but I like the names of my team on Silver (which I play a lot).

    Baku- Typhlosion
    Gary- Gyarados
    Tori- Skarmory
    Poppy- Jumpluff
    Mary- Ampharos
    Garz- Houndoom

    Most all of my Pokémon get nicknames, though they're usually Transformer names. For example:
    Bulbasaur- Bruticus
    Typhlosion- FireConvoy (Name of the Cybertron leader in Transformers: Car Robots)
    Blaziken- Hot Shot
    Infernape- Convoy (Optimus Prime's name in Japan)

    The strangest nickname I've ever given a Pokémon would be the one I've given my Giratina. I named it Clover, as a nod to the Cloverfield monster. It just seemed to fit for some odd reason.

    Well... I rarely name my pokemon...

    Shedinja: Kon
    Ninjask: Paku
    Both mean "spirit" or "soul"... though one refers to the mind and the other to the corporeal ghost.
    It's a reference to Youmu Konpaku, who is sort of a samurai and a "half-ghost" (she has a human form, and alongside her a ghost form).

    I name mostly all of my Pokemon, so here are some great examples:
    Basic-Eevee
    Aqua-Vaporeon
    Thunder-Jolteon
    Flame-Flareon
    Cute Power-Espeon
    Shadow-Umbreon
    Leafy-Leafeon
    Icy-Glacieon
    Dark Snow-Weavile
    Kazzie-Female Kadabra
    !!!!!!!!!!-Unown !
    ??????????-Unown ?
    Water-Empoleon (I wasn't very original there...)
    Bibarel-Nutty
    Diamond-Piplup partner in PMD2

    And one of the best I ever came up with:
    Vendetta-Female Banette (came from Making Fiends)
    In Black and White, Rock Smash is no longer an HM. Good riddance.

    I never used nicknames regularly until Silver, and most of them were abbreviations. Now most of my nicknames are references to favorite films/television programs. For instance:

    Swampert - Tobias (Arrested Development)
    Swellow - Lucille (Arrested Development)
    Aipom - Mr. F (Arrested Development)
    Bulbasaur - Jules (Pulp Fiction)
    Charmander - Vincent (Pulp Fiction)
    Treecko - Randal (Clerks)

    Those are the names that immediately come to mind, but there are many, more obscure references, but I can't remember who I attached them to -.-
