    I don't nickname any of my pokemon. I just like to call pokemon by their names. (Besides, I'm not creative enough!)

    Always. It's an interesting and fun little part of the game and it makes me feel more attached to the Pokemon.

    Only my team members. I don't care enough about any others to name them.

    Goblins and Saurus and Cheetaurs, oh my!

    I used to nickname every Pokemon I caught, but these days I mostly save it just for my personal favorites or the ones I intend to use.

    Some of them would be:
    Milotic- Narcissa
    Starmie- Aquarius
    Metagross- Titanium
    Hydreigon- Abaddon
    Chandelure- Wicca
    Volcarona- Seraphi
    Espeon- Ailura
    Mienshao- Shao-Lin
    Togekiss- Bisou
    Skarmory- Hecate
    Arcanine- Shisa
    Roserade- Fleur
    Dragonite- Kaiba
    Gengar- Lovecraft

    When I first started playing back in the GS days I always nicknamed my team, but I stopped doing that in Gens 3 and 4. Since my second playthrough of Black I've started nicknaming my team again. I don't bother naming anything not on my team since I'll never use them anyway.

    Most definitely yes, if I'm using it competitively. I don't nickname all the failure mons I hatch for perfect IVs, that would be tedious.

    I don't name them but I probably should. I play the game in a too computerized (for lack of a better word) fashion for me to feel comfortable naming my pokemon.

    I normally don't nickname my mons. Trying to come up with something unique for everything I catch would be a rather daunting task. However, I did think it would be kinda nice to at least nickname my Black party, with all of them being references to something.

    Emboar -> Pigfrit (pig + Ifrit, as in the fire-elemental Final Fantasy summon, and because I am terrible at puns)
    Zoroark -> DARKNESS! (because Ansem thinks that darkness is almost as delicious as scenery)
    Unfezant -> The Word (which is what the bird is equal to or greater than)
    Zebstrika -> Ixion (seriously, I cannot be the only person who's done this)
    Carracosta -> Crush (duuuuuude)
    Gothitelle -> Henrietta (named after the goth girl from South Park, and I did in fact have to look up what her name was)

    What is this place / filled with so many reblogs~

    Yes but only on the occasion that I have more than one Pokémon species sort of like 2 Snivy's one will keep its original name while the other gets a nickname.

    I love nicknaming my Pokémon based on whatever capitalization standard is present in the generation.

    My SoulSilver pals
    QUILAVA » Flareburst
    NOCTOWL » Insomniac
    FLAAFFY » Zaptail
    TOGETIC » Lucky Ace
    LEDIAN » Starlight
    GLACEON » Serenity

    Those nicknames are nice, aren't they? :P

    I give them funny nicknames, see my signature for those!

    Usually only my main team members. My team's names are:

    Samurott = Church
    Hydreigon = Caboose
    Scrafty = Grif
    Volcarona = Simmons
    Braviary = Washington
    Excadrill = Sarge

    If anyone gets the reference in those names, I'll give them a cookie. Or at least a picture of a cookie I got from google images.

    P.S. @Floris Tyranitar isn't that big of a troll. You can take him down easy with one fighting move :p
    I don't always resist, but when I do, it's with The Resistance. Stay resistant, my friends.

    Never on the first playthrough. Not naming them the first time makes it easier for me to judge which are worthless. If I nicknamed them, I would be more inclined to use them even if they sucked.
