The name of my Blastoise is Shellshock, and for my Empoleon, it's KingPin.
Here are some examples of the kind of nicknames I give my Pokemon:
Doubleduce/Ambipom (M)- So called because he can pull the famous "Double Duce" move off. Homestar Runner reference.
Artpup/Smeargle (F)- I had a female Smeargle on Crystal named Artpup, so this was for memories' sake.
Stubby/Bibarel (F)- Named after Bidoof's rumored English name.
Hei Hei/Crawdaunt (M)- named for the sounds Corphish makes in the Japanese version.
Noodles/Tangrowth (M)-meh, I was hungry at the time...
Fyrus/Heatran (M, Shiny)- Bet you can't guess what my favorite console video game is...
Ok, now here are the nicknames of my main party:
Rockbottom/Torterra (M)- Named after a tortoise character in a Redwall book.
Warbeak/Staraptor (F)- named after the sparrow queen in Redwall.
Blosso/Roserade (M)- Short for "Blossom", because my Roserade is a guy...
Fingal/Floatzel (M)- Named after an otter character from the Mistmantle Chronicles
Koruki/Luxray (F)- This is actually not based on anything. This name is completely original.
Infernape (M)- Is only named Infernape because I got him through the GTS...
Abamasnoe- Boq (from wicked)
All of these names are either big broadway stars or big broadway characters (i am a musical lover lol :P)[/QUOTE]
I changed this name to Cheno cause its a girl (kristen chenoweth)
I don't keep a constant team, so here's my favorites:
Cherrim-Green, dare i say why?
Slowking-Ywnage, play on pwnage, one of Slowy's sons
Pearl Staraptor-Lindberg, the aviator
Diamond Staraptor-Amelia, the aviator
Snover-Evergwen, combo of evergreen and Gwen
Jughead-Victreebel, its a jug plant
I love nicknames, they're fun => I'll list some of mine too...
First my Diamond in-game team. Then some random ones.
Empoleon, female- Peppermint. Cause minty things make me think of winter, which makes me think of penguins. A friend suggested the name though.
Staraptor, male- Hawke.
Bibarel, female- Dora.
Luxray, female- Lea.
Roserade, male- Romeo.
Rapidash, female- Solei. Soleil is French for sun, I just dropped the silent l.
Salamence, male- Bagel. It was cute when he was a Bagon, anyway. Which lasted an entire level. Lol.
Fearow, female- Fearless.
Dustox, male- Stringer. Named because of String Shot.
Sceptile, male- Trent.
Unown (b)- Birdie, cause it kinda looks like a bird.
Lanturn, female- Alannah.
Skuntank, female- Roma. As in aroma.
Vibrava, male- Pride. He's an antlion Pokemon, and lions live in prides.
Pikachu, female- Rabbit. That's what I thought Pikachu was the first time I saw it. In the same vein, I have a male Raichu named Hare.
Cacnea, female- Stabrina. Stab + Sabrina.
Tentacruel, female- Izumi. Because the name Tentacruel makes me think of the Digimon Tentomon, partner of Izzy, or Koushiro Izumi. I had a male in Silver named Koushiro, so I named her in his honor.
Vespiquen- Cornflake. I let my brother name her for me, lol.
Regigigas- Giggles. I'm one of those weirdos who talks to their games =p and while I was trying to catch him I got tired of calling him Regigigas and called him Giggles instead. It's pretty funny, cause he's serious natured. XD He's the only legendary I've ever named.
Linoone, female- Nuki. Short for tanuki.
Armaldo, male- Roth. Sounded kinda like Anorith.
Armaldo, female- Rita. Named for the same reason.
Breloom, female- Shorah
Volbeat and Illumise- John and Yoko. Named for John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
Togekiss, male- Toki. I've always named my Togepis that.
Spinda, female- Ugly Betty. The placement of her spots isn't terribly attractive.
Spinda, male- Baldwin. He only has one spot on his cheek, so he looks kinda bald.
Lucario, male- Mario
Omastar, female- Merri
Torterra, male- Nettle
Beedrill, male- McFly
Sneasel, male- Laundry. Kinda stupid inside joke.

Venusaur, female- Fleur
Toxicroak, female- Dart
Cacturne, female- Oasis
Infernape, female- Paprika
Corphish, female- Clippy
Volbeat (x3)- Nooj, Proot and Beatbox. Nooj is random, Proot cause that's what Volbeat's cry sounds like, sorta... And Beatbox should be obvious enough.
Shiny Absol, male- Lutely. Cause I'm an idiot.
Shiny Luxio, male- Courage
Shiny Shedinja- Angelo
Shiny Kadabra, female- Deborah.
Shiny Noctowl, female- Toshi. Not too hard to figure out.

Shiny Shinx, female- Braverie. To go with Courage =p
Oh, and a couple from my current Sapphire game.
Grovyle, female- Kimiko. Got the name from Xiaolin Showdown, used cause it sounded similar to Kimori.
Azumarill, female- Traci. Even more obvious than Toshi the Noctowl.
Shiny Gardevoir: Body Guard
That's it for now
EDIT: Changed Gardevoir #2 to Shiny Gardevoir
It's hard for me to remember now but my first Diamond team was:
Empoleon: Proud rain
Roselia: (couldn't figure out how to evolve it at this point) Flower gift.
Staraptor: Big star
Gastrodon: Snail shell (-_-)
Luxray: Thunder cat (-_- again)
Bibarel: Big Beaver (-______-)
My most recent Pearl file:
Flotzel: W.G. Burg (Woopy goldberg, and it's a guy, LOL)
Machamp:Hitko (I forget, It's japanese, and has something to do with fire)
Some new names:
"phaseSHIFT" - Hitmonchan (WoW Imp spell)
"Azualt" - Hitmonlee (Liked the sound of it)
"Pudding!" - Hitmontop (Puddin')
"Walrus!" - Tyrogue (My third favorite animal)
"Fluffums" - Arcanine (My fluffier dog's nickname)
"F**klax" - Snorlax (My immediate apologies for language, but I was expecting a Munchlax after 10,000 steps)
"Joegotthis" - Kangaskhan
The story with Joegotthis involves the Safari Zone and a bit of frustration. I was seeking to catch a Kangaskhan in the Pastoria City Safari Zone, to no avail (only one showed up, and it ran away rather quickly). Finally, I thought to switch over to LeafGreen and head over to Fuschia. Several Kangaskhans appeared, but I was failing to capture a single one. In the middle of the "battle" with my fifth Kangaskhan or so, my boyfriend Joseph yanked my DS out of my hands and pressed A to throw the Safari Ball.. and 1, 2, 3 twitches.. it was caught.
"Midterms" - Kabuto
After my Food Survey Midterm, I started playing Pokemon behind my notebook. I found a Dome Fossil while underground, and had it resurrected or whatever.
I name all my Pokemon, usually after what music artist or song I'm listening to at the time. But I did just recently catch a male Girafarig which I named StudMuffin because I plan on breeding the heck out of him ^_^
I nickname all my Pokemon. These are just a few of them:
Charlemane/Charizard (M) - My first Pokemon ever, I wanted him to have a sort of epic name.
Gilda/Giratina - Named for the gold in Giratina's design.
Dianna/Dialga - Variations of this name mean "divine".
Emperor/Empoleon (M) - Named for obvious reasons...
Angel/Articuno - My little snow angel. ^^
Zelda/Zapdos - Cause it sounded cool...
Marabelle/Milotic (F) - The name literally means "beautiful Mara".
There are quite a few others, too...
I only have a few.
I named my Charizard "Valoo" from Zelda: The Wind Waker
(I considered Volvagaia from OoT, but Valoo looks more like Charizard)
I also am training an Espeon named "Majora."
(Espeon's head looks a little like Majora's Mask)
Yeah, I'm a Zelda fan. So what? Wanna fight about? :D
Midna/Weavile (F)-Because Midna looks like a Weavile. She does!
Navi/Phione - Because it's blue and looks like a fairy.
Epona/Rapidash (F)- Don't think I need to post my reason for this...
Rupee/Skorupi (M)- I saw "Rupi" in its name and...
Gohdan/Bronzong - named after the Tower of the GOds boss from Wind Waker...the faces look similar.
Twilimir/Bronzor - was going to be nicknamed "Twilight Mirror", but it was too long.
Power/Mesprit - named because it represents the Triforce of Power (to me, at least)
Wisdom/Uxie - named because it represents the Triforce of Wisdom
Courage/Azelf - named because it represents the Triforce of Courage (It is the God of Valor, and Valor=Courage)
Zelda/Ralts (F)- Because I'll evolve her into Gardevoir, who is sort of a "royal-like" Pokemon.
Fyrus/Heatran (Shiny M) -Because the fire boss in TP was awesome.
Link/Mightyena (M) -Because Link can turn into a wolf.
Rosakai, you roxxorz. :D
I'm working on bringing up a Salamence named Argoroc, after the boss of the Wind Temple in TP (one of my favourite boss fights in any Zelda game).
