    Default When nicknaming your Pokemon...

    When you nicknamed your Pokemon in the pre-Gen V games, would you completely capitalize their nicknames (i.e. "FLUFFY") or would you only capitalize the first letter (i.e. "Fluffy")?
    I do both.

    I normally capitalise the entire nickname, with a few exceptions (e.g., AllThePies the Snorlax, using CamelCase instead of spaces due to the 10-character limit).

    I never have the name in all caps, because if it's in caps then it doesn't feel like a real name.

    I don't do it in all caps. Usually I make the first letter capital, hen the rest lowercase. When the name is multi-word, I omit the space.

    It depends on what I want it to look like. When I'm lazy I do all caps, but I generally try to use proper capitalization.

    At first I just did normal capitalization, and everyone stuck out like a sore thumb.

    Then the first time I played HG I caught wise to this, except that was when nicknames and character names started to not be in ALL CAPS, so I just looked stupid.

    Then I went back to normal capitalization.

    I've always done it normally. Honestly, the all-caps thing for names is something that's always bugged me in the games. I'd renickname pokemon I caught their name lowercased, just so that it wouldn't be in all caps. (Ex: SWELLOW would become Swellow.) I did that for all legendaries.

    At first I did to match the style, but then when RSE came out I switched to normal/proper capitalization. Unless it's for a joke or something.

    I'm happy that BW has done away with all caps names. People in Unova don't have to strain their voices when battling like the poor saps in regions past.

    Pre-Generation V, I would capatalise the entire Pokémon's name. I was the only person at the 2010 VGC that I saw who did this xD

    I only ever captilise the first letter. (Which was pretty hilarious, as I used to use a full captilised name for my player.)

    I usually do it in all caps. More out of consistency and convenience than anything else.

    I never did all caps, and felt awkward for doing so when everyone else in game practically screamed their Pokemon's names at me, so I rarely nicknamed my Pokemon. Now that they've fixed it, it's a lot better, although I still havn't nicknamed anything in Gen V simply because I still didn't know the Pokemon.

    I never did all caps. Looks too unnatural to me. But I did always put a capital letter at the start of the name, obviously.

    About the same here, I got so used to Gen 5's proper lettering that I went back and renamed all of my Pokemon with proper casing.

    I'll use all caps, no caps, or anything inbetween. ^_^
