    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. :>

    I'm pretty much the same as the two above posters. The only theme I remember using is Ryu the Lucario and Ken the Blaziken in SoulSilver.

    All my Pokemon in HG were named by a combination of their Japanese name and the suffixe "ana", "ani", or "ane".

    Hinorani - Typhlosion
    Horane - Noctowl
    Strikana - Scizor
    Tattani - Kingdra
    Uriana - Mamoswine
    Mariane - Ampharos


    Named after their base forms of course

    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 name all my legendaries off of characters from Greek mythology (i.e. Morpheus for Darkrai, Poseidon for Kyogre, Aeon for Celebi, etc.).

    Admittedly, though, since it looks like they're finally stopping with that stupid all-caps default name, I may just keep their names the way they are now.

    I name them based on their names. (Megan the Meganium, Tyson the Typhlosion, Fergus the Feraligatr, Wilbur the Excadrill(I didn't change his name on evolution 'cuz the best Excadrill name I could think of was Caleb, and that sounds stupid), etc.)

    Usually not, though I consistently name my Unown after their respective letters. I am planning on a theme-named power trio team for White:

    Balthazar - Samurott
    Melchior - Galvantula
    Casper - Chandelure

    During my first Heart Gold Game I was still playing God Of War 3, do alot of the pokemon there have Greek or Roman mythology inspired names. Poseidon the Gyarados, Zeus the Raikou, Gaia the Golem..ETC.

    Usually I just nickname pokemon whatever I am feeling at the time.

    Default Re: Nickname themes

    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.

    i usually don't use themes when nicknaming my pokemon, though one time i named all the members of a sapphire team after flowers (i don't think i got too far in that one...) and in another file after tales of symphonia characters.

    Default Re: Nickname themes

    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.
