    Yes. I nickname everyone that goes on my team or ends up in a Poke Ball, for that matter. I don't call my best friend "Human" so why should my poor Golurk be stuck with only a species name?

    I only name certain ones when a name suddenly jumps into my head and I decide I just have to name them. I had Shellshock the blastoise and Shocker the pikachu :D

    This, so very much! I always nickname my Pokemon, it adds a feeling of personal attachment to the game. They go from being bits of data to a treasured friend. It shows you really care if you bother to take 5 seconds to name them, you know? I don't even trade on the GTS if the Pokemon doesn't have a nickname.
    Signature is a WIP for the moment.
    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    I nickname almost all of my Pokemon, although when I'm shiny/nature hunting in the post-storyline game, I don't nickname babies I'm not going to keep.

    On the occasion I do. Sometimes it's the creatures' Japanese names.

    I only provide the nicknames if I planned my team (even in-game), but otherwise, I don't, because I don't have plans with the Pokemon, so it's best to leave it pure.

    Thanks for reading.

    I nickname the mons I use in wifi-battling. Fittingly my Conkeldurr is called Clowncrete, so everytime I sweep with it, it is said that "he swept my team with his namesake".

    I nickname as I feel like it, with no real reasoning behind it. So maybe a Stoutland that's been part of my team whole game doesn't have a nickname, but perhaps a random bird to fly does.

    On the other hand, I can't resist naming Magikarp "Arceus".


    Because of this, I don't really mind in-game trades having nicknames. And because of regions nobody will know anyway... Though while everyone loves Kinniku/MUSCLE, some of them really suck.

    I only nickname certain Pokémon which are specifically Pokémon in my party when I can think of a nickname for the Pokémon.

    I used to not nickname my Pokémon, but when I replayed HeartGold I decided I would just to do something different, and now I nickname all the mons I use. Legendaries are the exception though, because they're special already, so they don't need a new name.

    Not usually. The only ones I regularly name are my party members.

    Though a few years back I was so bored in Gale of Darkness that I went on a naming spree, and nicknamed every single Pokemon unique and (IMO) interesting names. Can't recall if I named the legendaries though, but knowing my sticklerness over UT legends, I prolly didn't.

    @Silverwynde-

    I totally agree.

    Yes I do. Usually after I catch it I keep it's species name until I can think of a good one. I name them after singers and people in bands, whatever sounds cool or fits their nature and looks, or something like Killer or Blood Lust.
