Does anyone give certain Pokemon nicknames? I'm not talking about individual specimens, but species as a whole. For example, I often call Mantine 'Mr. Honk-Honk' because the sound it makes sounds like a cute little car horn. (yes, even if it is a female Mantine, I call it that)

I've never nicknamed any of my pokemon, the simple reason being, I am forgetful. I would forget which pokemon was which if I did that.

my sceptile or zangoose is usually named Dante they come off as a dante to me..minun and plusle and always tori(y) and ruby due to my deceased friend who used to name them that and they were her favorite pokemon... Typhlosion is usually just typhlosion unless i can think of a good name..other than that i really dont name my pokemon

giving nicknames is certainly a plus. besides, when you have a battle, having a nickname could throw off the opponent.

Reminds me of the time I was trying to get a Mew via some fake "cheat" which involved catching a Magikarp and nicknaming it Mew. My friends thought I actually got one somehow... XD

I name my Pokemon's randomly. It's names are very weird. Like once, I named a Pidgey, "Fli". Isn't that wierd? I don't know. I wanted to call him "Fly" and I wanted to spell it different but sound the same. But it didn't sound the same. Instead, his name is "Fli". -Flee-

I give my Pokemon nicknames - mostly because I tend to start doodling them and fleshing them out as characters with unique personalities, and a special name just helps out with that. Makes the game more fun, if I do say so myself.

A list of all the nicknames I have would take ages, but off the top of my head I have: Kaizer the Flygon, Mako the Torterra, Raff the Vileplume, Ventri the Victreebel, Azure and Kero the Toxicroaks, Pandora the Sableye, Dio the Ampharos, and Greymalkin the Sneasel. Most of them actually have some kind of reasoning behind them, but there are some I just thought sounded cool.

Like subaku, I forget who is who when it comes to nicknaming my Pokémon. As for a whole, no. I've never thought of that before. Oh wait ... Smeargle. Its name as it is I thought as stupid, so I just called it that-one-Pokémon-with-a-paint-brush-for-a-tail.

All dittos are either "superstar" or "discostar" to me. Goes with the song: "I'm so big, I'm a star, I want to be a Charizard!" Which is the point in a match when you take out your level 100 ditto and change into your opponents Charizard.

I have this habit of always naming Geodude/Machops 'Mister' or 'Sir'.

Farfetch'd I often refer to as Dandy.
