    Default Nickname themes

    On Pearl I'm naming a lot of my Pokemon after composers; Ludwig the Turtwig, Johann the Buizel, etc. I want to name the Lake Trio Alnitak, Alnilam and Mintaka, after the three stars in Orion's belt, and I'm thinking of using names of artists for my White team.

    Does anyone else use a specific theme when nicknaming their team? The possibilities are practically endless; capital cities, mountains (Everest the Arceus?), or even presidents (George for a Grass type!).

    Nope. I just use names I think sound great.

    Like Mozilla the Ninetales
    Or Brutus the Gyarados

    I suppose that's a theme. I have no theme. That's the theme.
    I extend my hand to the marvelous authors of this forum. I have read your works and I know that your imagination knows no bounds. Can you help me create a region? I will dedicate the series of fics I intend to use this region for to the gracious people who choose to help me on this audacious task.


    So Im asking you once again Bulbagarden - can you help me?

    My first real HeartGold team were named after people in the mafia, or related to the mafia in some way:

    Capone the Typhlosion (well, that's dubious, but whatever)
    Corleone the Meganium
    Hoffa the Fraligatr
    Gotti the Crobat
    Bottles the Sudowoodo
    Gambino the Scizor

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    I name all my Unown (except ? and !) after the corresponding words in the NATO Phonetic Alphabet (Alpha, Bravo, Charlie, Delta, Echo, etc).

    I once named a team after different kinds of meat

    It was like Pork/Venison/Beef/Steak/etc

    I think Wobbuffet was Venison, and Primeape was on there somewhere...

    All of my Fire starters were named after something to do with fire. That's about the only theme, really. D:

    Charizard in Yellow was Dragon. Woo.

    Typhlosion in Crystal was Mario. After Fire Mario.

    Blaziken in both Ruby and Emerald were Blaze. Ruby, because I didn't see the ability until after I nicknamed him. And in Emerald, I was too used to Blaze by then to call her by any other name.

    Charizard again in FireRed was Ryuu. Isn't that great? 8D -bricked-

    Infernape in Platinum was Goukazaru. Her Japanese name. ._. I was too excited to get the name going to bother for a more original nickname.

    Finally, Chaoboo in my JP White is Boca. Anagram of "bacon" minus the "N" (N himself stole it D8), and also after Boca burgers, which you bake in an oven.
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    Ryo - Tyranitar
    Hirokazu - Forretress

    And there was also one my brother had:
    Venusaur - Saturn
    Charizard - Mars
    Blastoise - Neptune
    Jolteon - Mercury
    Snorlax - Jupiter
    Dragonair - Venus
    Basic, but pretty cool.

    I have done the same thing in HeartGold (at the moment still no M (Mike), ?, or ! though). I used to nickname them simply "A", "B"... though.

    Other than that, I have mostly only occasionally nicknamed my Pokémon. Most recent is AllThePies the Snorlax in Blue.

    In FireRed, I was naming all of my Unown after locations that started with the appropriate letters (except ! and ?, of course). This sort of continued in Diamond, where I used mythological figures rather than locations (except for ! and ?, who I think I named Meh and Eh, respectively ).

    YouTube projects advertised are in early development and subject to change.

    To be honest, I don't even find a use of nicknaming my pokemon.mI'd rather leave my pokemon with their proper, official names. I can't explain why thoughm I suppose I just prefer it. Or it could be because I really dislike having to create good nicknames because I just can't. XD;

    I have a friend who named his team back in gold version after famous actors. He got quite a few, but the only one that I can remember is Depp the totodile.

    Goblins and Saurus and Cheetaurs, oh my!

    I'll probably nickname my team for black after famous landmarks in New York City, like Columbus (Columbus Circle) or Greenwich (Greenwich Village).
