My theme is words thay come to mind based on origin of species, type, looks, etc. May sound wierd, but it's true!
If it's name fits its appearance, then it'll work for me. That's just how I do it. :>
Did you enjoy Yoshi's Island as a kid? Do you like RPs? If the answer to either of these questions is yes, then what are you waiting for? Join my Yoshi's Island RP today! :D
My claims: Phanpy, Ice Shard, Blaine, Rock Head, Rocket (Trainer Class), Adamant, Likes to run, Black Sludge, Rugged Helmet, and Mt. Silver. :D
I favor naming my critters for angels, whether the ethnarchs of the Pseudo-Dionysian choirs (Tzaphqiel, Tzadkiel, Gabriel, Haniel, etc.) or the bearers of the Shemhamphorae (Ieiazel, Vasariah, Cahetel, etc.).

I nickname my pokemon depending on the feel I get from them at the time. My Magikarp for instance is called Krappy, Normaly I'll make a part anagram or reverse the spelling of their proper names. Legendaries, I mostly leave with their proper names.

Back when things were all-caps by default, I used to name Pokemon whatever their species name was, but in lowercase.
I've used human names that can be made out of letters in the species name in Sapphire, but that's the only real theme I've ever used. Usually the nicknames I give have no relation to each other.
I name my Pokemon after banned people on another forum.
Biberal - Imevil ( Person who hates Biberal)
Jynx - Jynx22123 (A guy who pretended to be someone called Rachael)
Sazandora ( When I get B/W ) - DD1000 ( DarkDragon1000, immature user who made stupid errors in every sentence )
Sceptile - GrovileCF ( Major spammer )
Porygon-Z - RandomGuy ( Immature )
All traded :p
I have no theme for the regular pokemon, but I like to name the Unown after the latin letter, e.g. A, Be, Ce, &c.
I have dodged many things, but that is not why I am a dodger. I just like wearing striped shirts.
I only nicknamed my Pokemon in Platinum and HeartGold. For Platinum, I named them after Japanese kami to fit the "shinto" naming for Sinnoh. I named my party from HeartGold by Japanese words to fit each one's element or design and to fit the Japanese theme Johto kinda gave us. For example, Ampharos is Geki and Noctowl is Kaze.
