My Snorlax is now KimJongDeux. Goes great with the NPC kids calling me "Dear Leader".
I'm totally thinking about naming a Chespin Rick. Because of Rollout.
Anyway, now that Riolu evolved I'm giving him a name. I so want to name him "Arlio" after my PMD main character, but that name is so much 'reserved' for that one specific Riolu that I can't. Took me almost 30 minutes but I settled on calling him Riko.
Golurk named Alphonse and a Pawniard named Edward.
I was completely stumped as to what I should name my Golett when I caught the little guy; I couldn't use Riser as that's the name of my pride and joy from Black and Dogū was out of the question. I thought I might call him Auto but I nixed that idea almost immediately. So, after a few moments, I settled on Titan.
Since he evolved into a Golurk yesterday, I'd say it fits him perfectly.
"Bumblebee reporting for duty..."

Finished evolving my second Fennekin. Named him "Kitani" so I can tell him apart from his mother.
Now that I've seen Bunnelby's evolution (Diggersby), I totally named one "Popeye" because that's precisely what those beefy lopear-arm-things remind me of. Too bad he doesn't have Pickup . . . but someone traded me a Linoone that does, so....
Yeah, I can totally think up humorous nicknames if I give it a try. For example, somebody should have a Triple Battle formation consisting of nicknames Yew, Lausthe, and Gaim.
I usually only give nicknames to the pokemon that I will use a lot of time. I base my nicknames on their characteristics in different languages, for example my Fennekin, I knew he would become something like a fox magic-wielder so I decided to name him "Kitsugen" because Kitsune means fox and Gen is used when talking about illusionary techniques.
Pikachu: Aruka (Mixture of maru [circle] and aka [red] because of her cheeks x3)
Mawile: Hakiba (Mixture of hakama [a clothing] and kiba [fang])
Aerodactyl: Araldigo (Mixture of araldico [heraldic] and dragon)
Pangoro: Xiongoro (Mixture of Xionmao [panda] and gorotsuki [rogue]
Blastoise: Taidou (Mixture of taihou [cannon] and another word I can't remember xD)
I've changed my nicknames from what I originally planned. 8U Well, only a small handful changed...
Hillary the Delphox (F) - Matches my sister's Greninja, who is nicknamed Jazz.
Carlton the Charizard (M) - He's Hillary's "brother" in a sense. 8U
Tael the Sylveon (M) - I named him after Tael from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Just to defy the "it's cute and pink and fairy so it has to be a girl".
Rusko the Pangoro (M) - In an odd turn of events, I named my little Pancham after the Dubstep artist Rusko. 8U I was into his music for a short time, so I was like "I'll name the next Pokemon I catch after him!".
3 Rune Blade the Aegislash (M) - My Zelda mood was kicked away by my Team Fortress 2 mood, so I decided to name my sword Pokemon after a sword the Scout can use.
Chinook the Aurorus (M) - He's an ice-type dinosaur, and I made him use Icy Wind a lot, so I decided to name him after the fabled Chinook Winds of Alaskan Native lore.
Signature is a WIP for the moment.
For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.
I nickname all my Pokemon, but here's the ones from my team:
- Oberon the Sylveon (Was originally Mycroft, but it didn't suit him. Named after the male fairy king from A Midsummer Night's Dream)
- River Song the Laparas (Named after a character from Doctor Who)
- Loonie the Drifblim (Always thought that name would be cute for this Pokemon)
- Dante the Lucario (Couldn't figure out a nickname for him right away, so named him after the main character from Dante's Inferno)
- Starbucks the Gogoat (Wanted a male but caught a female. Named because it looks like the colours from Starbucks? I'm not sure, gets a giggle from my friends)
- Cecil the Delphox (Named after Cecil from Welcome to Night Vale)
I usually name after fandom-y things, or names that I think will suit them. :)

I never nickname my Pokémon but just felt like nicknaming a Zweilous I caught today. Mainly because a friend here on the forums always tells me about his Hydreigon who's called Steve. It's a female Zweilous and I already evolved it. Named it Heidi. Heidi the Hydreigon :P That friend is planning on sending Steve over from White 2 once Bank comes out and then we will breed them.

I nicknamed my Chespin "Chester", but otherwise I haven't been nicknaming my Pokemon because I want to remember all the Pokemon species names :P
I kissed you in the water and made your dry lips sing
I saw you look like a Japanese baby
In an instant I remembered everything...
