Let's say I'm really into Geography and usually my party's nicknames are related to that. I take into consideration the Pokémon's design and name them after geographic landforms or regions/countries. For exemple, I once had a Hippowdon named Niger, because its type, color pattern that reminds of deserts and its ability Sand Stream. Intense sandstorms are really common in Sahara and the Sahel, both regions where the country Niger is located.
On my current Platinum walkthrough at this point I have:
Infernape name Sahel; a Gastrodron name Sudd; a Rotom named Cairo; a Staraptor named Magreb and a Roselia named Gambia. I still haven't decided my other mon.
but sometimes the names are pretty random and even kinky lol. Better stop here
I named my most recent female Snivy after Severa from Fire Emblem, it's something about the personality of Ash's Snivy that reminded me of Severa.
Hitmontop: D-Trix (a bboy known for his crazy headspins)
just got a Parasect with sweet scent, spore and false swipe. called him Pedosect.
not a very clever one but thought it was a funny one
On a few of my files:
Weavile- Fang, or more recently, Scythe
Crobat- Radar or Cloud
Gengar- a lot of stuff. Usually Fear, Shade, etc.
Sableye- Havoc or Insanity
Breloom- Life, Health, etc. on account of its massive healing capabilities.
The list goes on.

Just restarted my Black 2 ROM, and here are my NEW nicknamed Pokemon:
Hebi (Servine)- Japanese for "Snake" (Pokedex says it's a Grass Snake)
Okami (Houndour)- Japanese for 'Wolf' (it's a black wolf)
Marino (Dewott) - Spanish for "Sea" (It's a water-type, and that name sounds cool.)
Kusa (Grovyle) - Japanese for 'Blade' (It knows the move Leaf Blade)
Mizu (Croconaw)- Japanese for 'Water' (Another water-type...)
Shori (Victini)- Japanese for 'Freedom' (WAS gonna name it Victory, but changed my mind)
Mimi (Audino)- Japanese for 'Ear' (It's hearing is VERY sensitive, so....)
Dendo (Elikid)- Japanese for 'Electric' (i would have done "spark plug", but it was WAY too long)
Watage (Mareep)- Japanese for 'Fluff' (It's a fluffy sheep!)
Doku (Seviper)- Japanese for 'Poison' (Needed an evil-meaning name, so i chose that. Plus, Seviper is a Poison-Type)
Kinoko (Shroomish) -Japanese for 'Mushroom' (I know, i know. It's lame.)
Yatai (Magnemite)- Japanese for 'Float' (It floats using anti-gravity!)
Kaihou (Butterfree)- Japanese for 'Butterfly' (Once again, lame.)
and NO i am not Japanese. i just happen to like looking it up.
Also restarted my Soul Silver ROM. Here are my New Nicknames!-
Chimchar (F) [Monkeyking] (I think it's an AWESOME name I thought up)
Quilava (F) [Kimira] (I think it's a very pretty name, for one of my fave Pokemon on my team)
Combusken (F) [Fire-Red] (Yes, the actual name of the game. I'm that obsessed w/ Pokemon)
Ivysaur (F) [Leaf-Green] (Again, the name of the game. But this time it's 'cause I always choose Bulbasaur in Leaf Green. Always.)
Wartortle (F) [10,000 yrs] (Named 'cause of the Pokedex entry in one of the GBA games)
Leafeon (F) [Earth-Day] (I am a MAJOR 'save the environment' girl, and Leafeon is a a grass-type....)
Sandshrew (F) [Sandball] (Don't ask. Idk WHY I named her that.)
Aipom (F) [Playful] ('Cause Aipom is playful, and stealing Ash's hat...)
Pachirisu (F) [Sparx] (Taken out of a story I read. It was actually named for a Pikachu, but I figured it could be used for any electric-type.)
Oddish (M) [Oddball] (Don't ask. I have NO idea why I named it that. I think I was running out of names...)
Poliwag (F) [Poli-Swirl] (That. Name. RULES!)
Gulpin (F) [EatSome] (More...?)
Ditto [Daycare] (Use it for breeding)
Bonsly (M) [Crybaby] (It cries....)
Shellder (F) [Shelly] (Pathetic Name, I know!)
(Don't actually have this) Mightyena - Link/Wolf Link because it looks similar to Wolf Link from Zelda Twilight Princess.
Your favorite Pokemon browser.
Yesterday I traded for a Golurk, simply because I liked its nickname. It was named Optimus. Too bad he doesn't know Transform but maybe I can reteach him Rollout...

i actually used an Animal Crossing: New Leaf town name gen. for my Pokemon's names (Lame, i KNOW!). here are my party Pokemon for White:
Servine [Foxfield] (i thought it was a pretty name for a female Servine).
Panpour [Icelight] (I'm not sure WHY i gave him this name, as i HATE that Pokemon.
Charmeleon [Redbrook] (ALMOST the name of my town in my New Leaf game. this Pokemon is Red, so why not give him that name?)
Porygon [Skydrop] (Also am frustrated w/ this one. Gave it the 1st name i liked.)
Espeon [Sunbrook] (My fave Pokemon in my Party, she has the ability Magic Bounce. her nickname is also the EXACT name of my town in New Leaf.)
Keldeo [Starwind] (Mythical Pokemon, mythical name. Too bad it can't be in Resolute Forme in White.)
and oh, I always name Vespiquen Madonna.
I usually have a name theme for my Pokemon each game, but these are just some of my favorites:
Isamu: Samurott (get it Isamu the Samurott).
Viktor and Victoria: Stoutlands
Olly and Claire: Solosises
Cryogenic "Ryo": Vanilluxe

I'm sure there's more I just can't remember them.
