    Not all. I usually only nickname the pokémon from my main party (according to a certain theme), dragon-types (they take so long to evolve fully it's impossible not to get attached), and pokémon I hatched from eggs.

    I refrain from nicknaming legendaries.

    Yes, I nickname most of the mons that I catch. The exceptions are when I can't think of a name or when I just need it to trade. Otherwise, even the crap ones I never use have names. I don't nickname Legendaries, however.

    Never have and never will outside of the Mystery Dungeon series. It just doesn't appeal to me.
    I have claimed the Spell Tag and Kasib Berry, along with Adaptability and Shadow Ball. I have also claimed Gastly.

    If you think Nintendo need to sue PETA up the ass for making Pokemon Black and Blue, copy and paste this into your sig.

    I used to but not anymore! I like being consistent so only nicknaming some of my Pokemon instead of them all bothered me, and it took too much time and thinking to name everything I caught. Plus the names weren't ALL CAPS anymore from fifth gen and on so there wasn't much of a reason for me to give nicknames again~

    I only nickname Pokemon that are part of my teams, otherwise, not so much. I never nickname legendaries cause they're only trophies to me and I want to keep them untouched.

    The only time I would nickname legendaries is when I use them in any of my OU teams, and whenever I make Uber teams.

    I name almost all my Pokemon, a lot of the time with fandom names that I think match them. I.E. My Typhlosion named Axel, my Ampharos named Larxene, my Vulpix and Growlithe named Sansa and Arya, and my Arbok named Salazar.
    Sometimes I also like to give them nonsensical names, like my Raticate named Freeze and my Noctowl named Piplup. ^.^

    Oh, and I tend to nickname legendaries I like a lot.

    I try to name all of my Pokemon something clever, or at least cool-sounding. But a lot of the time, I really can't think of anything, resulting in Pokemon like a rattata named "Buzzy", which I always promise myself I'll rename later, but never seem to get around to.

    If I try to nickname my pokemon, I would be stuck for an hour trying to make up a good nickname. Although I had try it a few times before.
    I remember I nicknamed all my pokemons after Japanese or Shinto Gods/Goddesses back in the Crystal version

    Up to the 4th gen I nicknamed EVERYTHING. And then sometime around HG SS I realised I was running out of good names ^^;

    Nowadays I only honour my pre-planned team members with deeply considered nicknames...and occasionally a legendary if they give me any grief getting in the ball or if I happen to find them cute (see: Latios named 'Lil Pickle').

    Honestly, it is a sad and little terrifying how into nicknaming I am. I've gone to baby name sites and etymology databases and everything. Occasionally I like to go with symbolic, classic names, but sometimes I'll just nickname a Pokemon because of what I'm watching on TV at the time (see: Deb the Dwebble, as her egg hatched when Dexter was on). Only my fossils are theme named (Francois, Louis, Pierre...).

    my Vulpix and Growlithe named Sansa and Arya, and my Arbok named Salazar.
    Lol my Gyarados is Sansa and my Alakazam is Godric. SO glad it's not just me xDD

    I breed egg move pokes & DW females.

    Woah, wait a second. Do you enjoy the show Game of Thrones and/or the book series A Song of Ice and Fire?
    Because if so, I'm wondering why you named a Gyarados "Sansa". xD

    Only certain Pokemon. For example, not HM Slaves or Pokemon I'm going to be trading away.

    I pretty much nickname every Pokemon. Serious names for my in-game team, and incredibly silly names for everyone else.
