Never really nickname, called my Clefable Twinkle, and my Magikarp EPIC!! once. I think nicknaming can be a waste of time.

I usually nickname my Pokemon. I always nickname my starter "Kira" and from then on it just depends on the Pokemon. I nicknamed my Gyarados Bruce Lee, which is another favorite nickname of mine.

I never got into nicknaming pokemon as I saw no point in it until my friend convinced me that not naming a pokemon is like not naming a pet. "Dog, use bite! Fish, use splash!"

Anywho, since then I've named every pokemon that I've put in my team... 7 of them. haha

Sunny the Charizard
Chopstix the Infernape
Young G the Gyarados
Aaron the Lucario
Sweezy the Salamence
Magnus the Metagross
Prince the Kingdra

I always have trouble nicknaming my Pokemon, or finding good nicknames... The only good nickname I think I've ever come up with was nicknaming my Raticate Bucktooth... because Buck is the name for a male rat.. and Raticate has Buck Teeth..

I nickname nearly everything. I usually nickname my pokemon after anime and games characters. (Naruto = Jolteon, Kisame = Sharpedo, etc.) Other times I'll just come up with something I like. (Mudkip = Kipper, Meganium = Chia, Zapdos = Dr. Thunder, etc.)

Wedge Claydol

Lucario:Anubis
I really like these.

I remember my first nickname was my Magikarp, which I named Magikrap and got confused a long time later when it evolved and I thought it kept its name...

Now, I nickname every once in a while. Usually when I do challenges. My favorites are:

Orion the Starmie (props to whoever named a Venomoth that, but I think it fits Starmie better)
Meteor the Aerodactyl
I always have someone named Titan, usually like a Nidoking, Gallade, etc.
Riptide the Blastoise
Tank the Charizard (its a long story)
Princess the Lapras
Nyx the Sableye

I really like odd names (like the Claydol's Wedge name) and mythological names.

I never nicknamed my Pokemon until my HeartGold. For some reason I decided to try it.
I named my Ampharos Zapper.
I named my Ho-Oh Aero.
And my Feraligatr Slasher.
I still prefer to keep their original names though.

I once named my Ekans I caught on my first playthrough of red Namuh.

Reason being was this; people, usually bikers and that guy from the Simpsons, have had the nickname Snake in the past. So I thought it would be funny to have a snake named Human...although my mom is afraid of snakes and wouldn't let me have another after the first one died...so when I caught Ekans, I noticed it was Snake backwards, and thus Namuh was born. :D

Right now, I have a Staraptor I nicknamed Shep after John Sheppard, lol. I'm wanting to EV train a team of Poochyena/Mightyena's, I want to nickname after the team from The Losers(Clay, Pooch, Jensen, Cougar, Roque, and Aisha).

Plus my Jolteon, which I named Zat. :P

Now this is a thread for me!
I always put effort in my pokemon's nicknames...
They of course have to be related to the pokemon itself... so for exp. flygon's nick is Terradon. terra is latin for ground (i always tend to use latin words, don't know why but they sound awesome!) and don is itallian for master, or lord or something like that... So you get "master of the ground" (which it is ;) ).

Dragqueen is the perfect kingdra name, hehe you know you want to =P

It works for kingdra because seahorse males give birth making it seem like a female, What's the definition of a male that acts like a female? dragqueen
Also going on that route its also a dragon giving the prefix drag. Plus dragons are so overused so thats where it sells itself out like an actual dragqueen.

I like thinking of nicknames for my Pokemon. The only time I don't usually nickname is my first playthrough of a game. I always give nicknames for any challenge I do, and I try to think of good nicknames not stupid ones. I've done Rikki, Tikki, Tavi, Rudyard, and Kipling for one team :D. And right now my team in Sapphire's nicknames are Roy G., Biv, Xavier, Jekyll, and Hyde. I really like themed names :D

That's why I took Latin in high school; its such a beautiful language.

I really like this one too.

I"m pretty sure I've posted here before, but my all time favorite names are Tank and Blitz. Tank is usually like a Charizard or a Nidoking or something like that, not necessarily a tank, but a really strong Pokemon. Blitz is reserved for the fast Pokemon (not birds, for some reason I don't think blitz fits well there), but like Jolteon, Luxray, Pokemon like that (although it doesn't have to be Electric)

I see I'm not the only one nicknaming Pokemon! I'll tell you some of the nicknamed Pokemon I'm proud of...

Bob the Moltres
Yuuki the Togekiss (Japanese for 'courage' BTW, and it's perfect since this guy nearly has perfect IV's 0_0)
Dododongo the Cyndaquil
Sakoroshi the Gliscor
And last but not least, Jaden Yuki the Giratina :D (If the new VGC format will be triple battles, I'll get two Pokemon and name them Yusei Fudo and Yugi Muto...hopefully someone will get the joke)

I usually nickname Pokemon with Japanese names...or Latin if I'm feeling 'spicy'...or name them after some random character :P

I nickname after traits or just randomly.

For example, I named my Notch Eared Pichu [Heart Gold] Kaminari, meaning lightning. I named my Typhlosion [Soul Silver] Sunray after it's type. I named my Torterra [Platinum] Peaches simply because I was eating a can of peaches at the time.

I also nickname hatched Pokemon so I can tell the difference between them.

I have rarely nicknamed Pokémon. When I had Gold, I nicknamed my Chikorita "flower" and my Krabby "cranchi". I have a friend who in SS has a Snorlax nicknamed "Michi" (way/road/path in Japanese) and an another one who has a Golbat nicknamed "bat".

I MUST.

I always give my pokemon some sort of nickname. Sometimes it's just something random I came up with on the spot, sometimes it's a japanese word (Like Toku for Bronzor or Gaidoku for Grimer), and sometimes it's just... Well, this conversation sums it up <<

Me: Okay, started a game in Soul Silver. Nicknamed my Cyndaquil 'Fire'.
Friend: ... What? Originality much? Why did you name it that?
Me: Well so when it evolves I'll change his name to Fira and when he becomes a Typhlosion I'll rename him Firaga.
Friend: ... okay you win.

I sometimes give them a funny nickname, for example, I caught a Miltank after about 30 Ultra Balls, it pissed me off so much I nicknamed it "Whitney".

But most of the time, it's just giving them their actual name, but with good grammar. I actually go as far as asking people to re-nickname pokemon with AR for me

I don't always nickname all of my pokemon but only some!
I've named My Typhloshion in SS Eruption and my shiny Pigeot Sky :) I can't remember some of the others.
