    I tend to nickname the Pokemon I plan to use, but not those I box. It all depends, though.

    If I fall in love with a nickname then I can't help myself. But typically, if one Pokemon receives a nickname then they all will.

    I haven't nicknamed Pokémon for years, not since Crystal. The last Pokémon I remember nicknaming was BANANA, my lv. 100 Kakuna.

    I nickname all my Pokemon. It makes me feel more attached to them, like they're my buddies.

    The only exceptions are legendaries.

    I used to not nickname anyone, but since Black 2, I got into the habit of giving my Pokémon names. Only the ones I will use get names; the others just go to the PC. I try to follow a common theme in naming, the most recent being "Avatars of Vishnu".

    For a long time I didn't, but for a while now I've been nicknaming everything I catch (save for legendaries). Usually I go with the weirdest thing I can think of that's still thematically appropriate. Occasionally I name all Pokémon of a certain species according to a certain theme - I name every Onix or Steelix I catch "Rocky" (after I was forced to play through SoulSilver with the stupidly-named Onix I traded for in Violet City), I almost always name the first Pikachu I catch "Sparky" (just because), and I name every Jigglypuff after Jay-Z in some way, for reasons that still aren't entirely clear to me.

    I've actually been nicknaming my Pokemon more lately, so yeah.

    They'll only go without a nickname if I seriously can't think of anything though.


    My favorite shinies. :3

    I always do- I love doing so and find it just makes them have more personality for me. I rarely don't give my Pokemon nicknames!

    Pearl: Names based on species name or the animal it is based upon.

    Infernape: Chimney (Male)
    Luxray: Lion (Female)
    Golem: Dude (She's a female, but I didn't notice at the time.)
    Pachirisu: Squrrel (Male, yes I know it's spelled wong, I was rushing at the time.)
    Chatot: Charap (Female, in game trade)

    FireRed 1: Names based on types or species, except Statur who was named because she knew mainly status moves when caught.

    Parasect : Statur (Female)

    Pidgeot: Cynder (Female)
    Alakazam: Chronicler (Male, was Kadabra all throught FireRed. Evolved when migrated to Pearl.)
    Arcanine: Magmadon (Male)

    FireRed 3 Names: based on Gaurdian Bakugan in season 1.

    Blastoise: Preyas (Male)
    Pidgeot: Skyrus (Female)
    Nidoking: Gorum (Male)
    Jolteon: Tigrerra (Female)
    Arcanine: Drago (Male)
    Dragonite: Hydranoid (Male)

    Inernape: Blaze (Female)
    Luxray: Amy (Female)
    Floatzel: Tails (Male)
    Garchomp: Sonic (Male)
    Lucario: Knuckles (Male)
    Weavile: Shadow (Male)

    SoulSilver: Names based on The Lion King characters.

    Mightyena: Yeno (Female)
    Breloom: Shroomo (Male)
    Swellow: Talo (Male)
    Lairon: Rono (Male)
    Plusle: Pluso (Female)
    Minun: Mino (Female)

    Black: Names based on claasic cartoon characters.

    Samurott: Dot (Female)
    Liepard: Rita (Female)
    Simisear: Monty (Male)
    Cinccino: Lola (Female)
    Emolga: Slappy (Female)
    Haxorus: Taz (Male)

    White 2 :Names based on Cry's Pokemon from Pokemon Adventures, all ending in -ee.

    Serperior: Serperee (Female)
    Ampharos: Amphee (Female)
    Arcanine: Arckee (Female)
    Glaceon: Glacee (Female)
    Flygon: Flygee (Female)
    Absol: Abiee (Female)

    I also tend to nickname Pokemon that aren't part of my main team, but I may not base it on whatever pattern I'm doing. I don't understand why you wouldn't want to nickname your Pokemon. I think its a nice feature that makes your Pokemon more unique. Not like just another Shinx or Buizel. Like a seperate individual.

    Nope, I don't find nicknames necessary. It's, to me, not like a nickname takes away or adds anything to the Pokemon on the team. I'm more along the lines of N. My Samurott has a name already, it's Samurott.
    Hmmm...Nope, I can't think of a think for a signature nor do I have any pictures I think would fit.

    End transmission, please.

    I nickname all my Pokemon, even ones I know I'm not ever going to use or that I know I'll release.
