    I only nickname certain Pokemon, mainly 3 that I'm going to use all the time in my team. After a while, I will give other Pokemon nicknames (via Name Rater) when I can think of a nickname

    I don't nickname my pokemon mainly for the reason that I really struggle to come up with good ideas for nicknames.

    Yep, and normally my favourite pokemon in the pack gets the honour of being called Laplace, after the Megaman Starforce character, it just seems like a cool name to me.

    I only nickname my competitive battling Pokemon, or ones that are important to me. Sometimes I'll name a random Pokemon i just caught some stupid name, but that's about it.

    I don't nickname my Pokemon. I guess I'm not into nicknaming things. I'm perfectly fine with the original names anyways.

    I nickname all of my team mates, and sometimes other random Pokemon I catch. If it's one I use, I give it a good caring one. If it's a random one, I give it something witty, sarcastic, and strange.

    I never used to name my pokemon. Then I started coming up with names for my teams, renaming some oldies that I could.

    Now, since creativity in that area is hard, I use an online random name generator. It's hilarious, names that would be ridiculous or unfitting really grow on you. I just love my Weezing, Claudio, and my Dusknoir, Faith XD

    Only if I'll be using that Pokémon in a team and train it. Otherwise, I don't name them.

    Legendaries will keep their names even if I would train them.

    When I was younger, I nicknamed nearly every Pokemon, even the Unown. I followed a pretty basic format. The first letter of their nickname should match the first letter of their final evolution. I don't follow this format if I have a nickname planned in advance. It's just nice to follow if I have no idea what to name 'em. The Unown themselves had the first letter of their nickname be their actual letter. So the H Unown was named Happy, or something like that, haha.

    Lately, I have only nicknamed my main team or competitive-ready Pokemon.

    I have a hard time thinking up names, so I reserve them for the primary team and then, if they impacted the game well, sort of continue reusing those names (Ivan for every important Venusaur, Happy for Butterfree, Dux for Farfetch'd, etc.)

    I also name every Unown typically by the Unown Dex, always in caps (JOIN, TELL, XXXXX)

    I'll most likely nickname my Pokémon if it'll be used in either competitive battles or a video walkthrough.
