I normaly dont nickname mine neither, but I kinda wanted to this time around. Alot of mine are pretty obvious.
Vapoeon: Skye (because when I was in a pokemon chat years ago, my icon was always a vapoeon and I'd show up under the name Skye)
I have a few new nicknames.
I know, the video game character
Eevee (And I want it to stay eevee)= Mikey
After the kid in the Kanto seasons of pokemon anime who did not want to evolve his eevee.
A combo of May and Wobbuffet
It looks like one
Nidoran Male= Moony
It evolves with a moon stone.
Que-part of a spanish word poi- part of poison kant- part of Kanto
Its evolved form looks like a jet plane. But it's female. Weird, huh?
He's the trio member of intelligence, right?
and finally, last, but not least,
Oceao the Vaporeon!!!
Oceao's name is pronounced Oh-say-oh, and is the current eeveeloution in training!
His name is based off of the word ocean.

I used to be into a Bleach, lawl. I stopped watching after Kariya's death.
I've never nicknamed pokemon in my game but for a few exceptions.
Once I nicknamed a Rattata in some store demo Ratfink.
In a restart of Ruby, I was trying for a female Treecko. Once I got it, I made a whole team of female Grass types, each with a name punning their Grass type, except for the female Treecko, which I named Julianne. This was inspired by Sceptile's JP name, Jukain. (She is indeed a Sceptile now and the mate of my team's Sceptile) She was transferred to Pearl and the rest of them were deleted.
The only other nicknamed Pokemon I have made exist in a fic I wrote.
Phoebe, a female Charizard: the sister of the sun god Phoebus, from Greek mythology. A suitable Fire type name.
Wildfire, a Rapidash: It seems like something you name a horse.
Obsidian, a shiny Camerupt: the shiny volcanic rock, because the poke is shiny, black, and has volcanoes on its back
My Typhlosion I named Bakufuun, that being Typhlosion's Japanese name.
My Meganium was named Chrysante after the flower.
My Raichu I named Lt. Surge, simply cuz I love the guy (NO, NOT LIKE THAT!! *flails arms*) and so I can mentally disturb the minds of others with a special move... >w>
My Espeon I named Eifii, after its Japanese name.
My Crobat, I named Mephisto after Mephisto in "Diablo 2"
Some of the nicknames here are quite extensive...:P. Me gusta.
I've only named members of my team and shinies (see sig) and random tool pokes:
Garchomp - Galileo
Milotic - Raphael
Snorlax - Milton
Scizor - Vincent
Venusaur - Leonardo
Houndoom - Dante
[Surprisingly...they're all male...never noticed until now.]
And with the 11 shiny Caterpies I caught, I named the male & female with the best stats Oberon & Titania (now king and queen of the Butterfrees) and the rest after Roman gods and goddesses.
Porygon-Z=Tim/Crow: Named after Crow from MST3K
Infernape♀=Shiva: short for Shivani(I'm thinking of changing her name to the longer version of that).
Lucario♀=Julie: In memorium of my late dog Judie.
Togekiss♂=Raito: Named after Yagami Light from Death Note(my Togekiss hates to lose and I find that even more hilarious). It's an inside joke. XD
Croagunk♂=Greg: It's Japanese name is Greggle...
Bibarel♂=Mr. Derp: Another pokemon named after an inside joke.
Here are my shinys(the name are all from friends):
Shysor The Quagsire
Rayra The Beautifly
Blass The Gaverlar
I need an idea for my shiny Rattata (PM me for Ideas)
I rarely name my Pokemon.
In fact, in DP I've only nicknamed 1 of them. My Shinx. It's named Dio Brando, due to Luxio's (and Luxray to some extent) cry sounding very close to Dio's "WRRRYYYYYY!"

I named my Blastoie qwerty2263. Guess what it stands for.
I nicknamed my inbreed Larvitar:Loputousu, so that all of 10 people can laugh at the injoke.
