^ I had a Staraptor named Orion once. Although, the only thing star-related about it is its name...
Mewtwo named Giygas.
My HeartGold Volt Tackle Pikachu is named "Genki" (Japanese for "energy").
My HeartGold Lapras is named Seiran. In Japanese it would be written with the characters for "blue" and "indigo."
My Lucario on Pearl was named Lio, after Lio Izumi from Full Moon wo Sagashite
On Pearl my Ditto is named Squishy (I got it in a trade and requested that name.) And on HeartGold it's named Sperm Bank.
My Dragonair is named Filia (after Filia from Slayers) and my Extremespeed Dratini is named Ninereeds (after a dragon that appears in Terry Pratchett's "The Color of Magic.")
I bred a few Chikoritas on HG, and named them Parsley, Thyme, Basil, and Cilantro. (Unfortunately no females yet so no Rosemary or Arugula.)
The best nickname I ever saw was back in 1999. I was at a Pokemon event at a shopping mall in MA, and had finished competing in a battle (this was in R/B/Y days.) They were showing someone's battle up on a big screen and I noticed that one of the players had brought out a Mewtwo...nicknamed JIGGLYPUFF. (BTW back in the day mine was named Sephiroth.)
And when I get White I'm totally going for Snivy and naming him Excalibur.
