View Full Version : [B/W] What kind of nickname are you, how do you represent the Pokémon you do~

By now, some of you may have played through the games and already caught many Pokémon. For now, I'm not interested in what your team is or how many you've caught; but what you've named them. Considering B/W has quite a diverse range of Pokémon, there are many nicknames you can come up with. Before you respond, be aware that there is a thread in Pokémon General Gaming, asking why you nickname Pokémon in general (http://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=232425&highlight=nickname), if you want to discuss that, then do so in that thread - this thread is only based on what you've nicknamed certain B/W Pokémon. - or plan to nickname.

Now, what are some of the most interesting names you've named your B/W Pokémon? Have you maybe called something a certain way because you dislike its Japanese name and you prefer the fan-made name? Or maybe another reason? If you haven't played the games, what do you plan to nickname certain Pokemon? Maybe call Victini "victory" because it represents that? Or are you planning to name certain Pokémon based on someone you know what you think represents that Pokémon? Alternatively, you could just give them a Syd nickname.

I have a bunch of planned nick-names. For starters, I plan on naming my bachura after you, tbh. xD

I have more epic names picked out, these are some Ive thought of.

Maggyo will become Flounderp.

http://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/568.pnghttp://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/569.png
This will become Garbagemon until I think of something more creative.

Whenever I catch one of these, It will either be dubbed Dairy Queen or Baskin Robbins. xD

80's. For the 80's disco. I havent caught one yet but I'm in the route I think they appear in.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/1/10/Spr_5b_579.png
Bloby. It's a floating blob.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/0/08/Spr_5b_531.png
Medic. It's the healer Pokemon.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/5/55/501.png

Clam. Look at the body.



I also might make a joke team with themed names. One I made was a joke team of a bunch of Machamp. "We will", "Own You", "Because", "We", "Rock". It was a joke team with all the exact same stats and movesets. The sixth member of that team was "MACHAMP" the Hitmontop.

Usually I name my Pokemon after my fanfic characters, but this time I might go for an anime/manga theme this time. Already named my Pokemon after Fullmetal Alchemist characters in Emerald, so I might go for Black Cat (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=5245) for B/W. Pretty much this is how I'll name my planned Pokemon team:

http://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/503.png
Train, because he's the main character in Black Cat and this guy is my starter. :P

http://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/553.png
Sven, only because of the Pokemon looking cool with glasses. :P

http://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/523.png
Eve, because it's a pretty name and this Pokemon is pretty.

http://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/620.png
Jenos, because this Pokemon is very fierce.

http://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/567.png
Creed, only because this Pokemon looks crazy, haha.

http://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/609.png
Kyoko, because the character can use fire attacks, and this Pokemon is a fire type, so yeah. :P

Lear
Because he is royalty, and obviously a king, which reminds me of Shakespeare's King Lear. The ghost typing influences this also, not that Lear is ever a ghost but because of the themes of the entire play.

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/shiny/623.png
Megazord
Named after Power Rangers! :D

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/558.png
Nathaniel
I had a hermit crab named Nathaniel, who was named after Nathaniel from War of the Worlds. I also had Beth and The Journalist, so if it was a girl it would be Beth, and I might just call it Journalist anyway.

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/601.png
Clockwork
Obvious reasons, I would think.

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/565.png
Terrorpin
Because he's a turtle, but he is scary. :3

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/579.png
Jellol
Named after a fakemon I created; the two don't really share any features besides the fact they're jelly-like.

Muurando: Sugar (after my sister's dog)

Yanakki: Elvis (after Elvis Presley because he has Elvis' hairdo)

Kenhorou: RoadRunner (after the Roadrunner in Looney Tunes)

Zeburaika: Marty (after the zebra in the Madagascar movies)

Gigaiasu: Chromastone (after the alien in Ben 10: Alien Force)



Doryuuzu: Grand Mole (after Neo-Spacian Grand Mole from Yu-Gi-Oh! GX)


Zuruzukin: Eminem (after the rapper/singer because both look gangster)

Desukan: Ramses (after the Egyptian pharaoh)

Abagoora: Crush (after the Finding Nemo character)


Rankurusu: Gummy Bear (it looks like one!)


Shikijika/Mebukijika: Bambi (after the Disney character)


Shubarugo: Lancelot (because it's based on a knight)


Shandera: Skellington (after Jack Skellington from The Nightmare Before Christmas)


Agirudaa: Kakashi (after the Naruto character because their faces are hidden)


More to come.

What a odd title, I think the grammar is off...What Nickname are you, lol, oh sorry I just had to say this
Now for nicknames:
Tsutarja: Ivyss (Sounds like Abyss and has ivy in it :) )
Pokabu: Poka (short for Pokabu )
Majimaru: Nami if it's a female (I want a female one) or Umi if Male (They both mean Sea in Japanese)
I still have to think of more...

Since, I have full team down. Nicknames have all been given to them, so now I will present these Five-letter nicknames.

Jaroda = Smug- Everyone should know why he is named this.

Hihidaruma = Poop- Look at the Pokedex information for Darumakka, then you will get it.

Doryuuzu = DRILL- Originally I was supposed to have a Gigaiasu named GIGA, along with a other Pokemon named BREAK, so put those together and get GIGA DRILL BREAK.

Abagora = Elder- Elder Turtle, not original blah blah blah.

Denchura = 4Ever- Named this little girl after Forever, because Forever loves Denchura.

Sazando = High- Little dumb name, the name is supposed to make fun that this guy evolves to his final stage at Level 64.

You stole my planned nickname :D

But I think I will keep this http://pokejungle.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/575.png called Train Wreck coz thast is what it looks like.


http://pokejungle.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/576.png Lady Gaga is my planned nickname as she can be a male.

http://pokejungle.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/574.pngBrittany.. Thought it up on the spot. Cute name for a cute pokemon.

Jarooda shall be called "Empress" Because she is a royal pokemon.

Hmm...as of right now, here are my planned nicknames for some Generation V Pokemon:

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/d/db/Spr_5b_500.png
Enbuoo - Razorback. Alternate name for a boar. I decided on this and finalized it long ago when Pokabu was first revealed.

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/5/53/Spr_5b_503.png
Daikenki - I'm still undecided. Maybe Samurotter or Daikenki...

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/shiny/497.png
Jaroda - Poison Ivy (Poison implies a threat, and ivy...is ivy, I guess.)


Monkey trio - Oakey, Soakey, and Smokey. They sound so cute! :) Courtesy of BleuVII (http://www.pokecommunity.com/member.php?u=201567)

Might nickname the garbage Pokemon Garbagiga, still undecided... Courtesy of #Emochu (http://www.pokecommunity.com/member.php?u=230914).

Here some other names I might use should they not turn out as actual English names:

I've been browsing one of the Bulbagarden threads, and came across these proposed English names (I'm limiting myself from most of the Pokemon, so I can't post their Japanese names. But they shouldn't be too hard to figure out...)

Baboom - fire monkey (Hihidaruma or pre-evo)
Orangubang - fire monkey (Hihidaruma or pre-evo)
Arachtric - electric spider (Denchura or pre-evo)
Thorantula - electric spider (Denchura)
Crocodune - ground gator/croc (Meguroko)
Sarcophaghoul - sarcophagus (Desukan)

I would LOL if I ever heard a Pokemon Stadium announcer say "It's ORANGUBANG!" It's very fun to say as well! :cer_laugh:

Sarcophaghoul seems to exceed the current 10-character name limit; the only alternatives I can develop would be Sarcofagul or Sarcophagl... But those detract a bit from the original awesomeness of "Sarcophaghoul"...


Here's the aforementioned Bulbagarden thread:

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/shiny/632.png
Iront/Aianto - possibly Antantium. Courtesy of elarmasecreta (http://www.pokecommunity.com/member.php?u=187387).

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/5/5e/Spr_5b_625.png
Kirikizan - possibly Huricanger/Huracanger (reference to Ninpuu Sentai Hurricanger). Always wanted to use that name in some context.

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/621.png
Crimgan - possibly SkulDrache (means 'skull dragon', as it seems to have rib-like structures on its abdomen).

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/a/a2/Spr_5b_587.png
Emonga - possibly Sparky

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/5/5d/Spr_5b_612.png
Ononokusu - Battle-Axe or Axehead; most likely the first one due to the axe-shaped tusks. Something with the word "axe" in it, for sure.

Not nicknaming any of the legendaries, AFAIK right now.


~LOL at the thread title reference...!

October 13th, 2010, 06:44 AM
Pokabu: Porkchops
Tsutaja: Smugleaf

The problem with naming Miji Sadface is that it loses it's sad face...unlike Smugleaf who keeps it's smile all the way though the last form has a monaliza like smile...

Grapevine no clue where the name came from but I used it on my japanese Jalorda and I'm gonna use it on this one

http://pokejungle.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/500.png
Boargatoy the Purgatory of the Boar

http://pokejungle.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/503.png
Searial I wanted to have Sea and Spiral in his name but it didn't work out without me switching the letters around

http://pokejungle.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/553.png
Baryovial based from the Baryonyx and the Gavial both of which seem to be inspiration for Waruvial

http://pokejungle.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/571.png
This thing could break into peoples worst Nightmare's if he wants to

http://pokejungle.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/612.png
Judgement I have less of a reason for this name than I do for getting a Jalorda and naming Grapevine

http://pokejungle.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/620.png
Spirit just has that spiritual feel to it

http://pokejungle.net/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/625.png

Lots of people seem to use Lady Gaga for these three, lmao.
But names that I see fit would be something like Lollipop. :P

http://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/498.pnghttp://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/499.png
I'm sure almost everyone will use Porky for Pokabu... and I was going to too, but I think Hammy looks better, especially for Pokabu's second evolution (which I previously hated ><)
http://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/509.pnghttp://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/510.png
The only name that I think fits these Pokemon is Violet. It just...looks right. ^^'

Oh how I adore this line...<3 Rugby seems to be the best name for them, IMO. :3
http://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/547.png
Omgomgomgomgomg, the best Grass type in Gen 5~
I don't know why, but when I see this Pokemon, I automatically think...Caramel. <3
http://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/607.pnghttp://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/608.pnghttp://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/609.png
A name that best fits this line for me is definitely Ebony. It looks good on them. :>
http://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/629.pnghttp://floatzel.net/pokemon/black-white/sprites/images/630.png
<33333333333 Freakin... AWESOME.
ANYWAYS, the best name for them would be, like...Velma or something, lmao.
It's just that when I look at the final evolution, Velma is what comes to mind. x3

And those are the nicknames I see that fit best for my favorite 5th gen pokes. :>

October 13th, 2010, 02:48 PM
Well lets see,

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/612.png
I named this guy Drago. I think it's obvious why.

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/500.png
Feu, which is "fire" in French.

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/555-unblue.png
Daru, just seemed to fit considering it's in its Japanese name.

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/553.png
Darko, it's a Dark type...Darko sounded cool haha.

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/604.png
Tryda, which is a word in a different language... I can't remember which word nor the language. XD What I did for quite a few of my Pokemon is used a word that represents them in some way and translated it into a different language.

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/619.png
Named this one Pooh, from Winnie the Pooh haha.

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/621.png
Dreko, part of "Dragon" in another language.

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/622.png
Vaerg, if I remember right that was "Guardian" in another language.

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/633.png
Heima, which is "at home" in Icelandic. For some reason, reminded me of Iceland and Sigur Ros, and I thought it'd be a suitable name. :P

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/523.png
Zebua, a bit of a reworked version of it's name's first few letters in Japanese, thought it sounded cool.
--------
There's quite a few others but I don't feel like listing them all. :P

OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire
October 13th, 2010, 03:03 PM

I've nicknamed all my Pokemon in Black, and I'll go through a few that I can explain.

Like "Penny" the Shimama. I nicknamed her that because of her Electric typing, and if she was male, I would have named her "Bolt". Since she's female, I went with a female character from the same movie, and so Penny.

There's also my Dageki, named "Blue". That was the only name I could think of at the time, because of its skin color. Then I realized that Dageki looks like my manager at work, so I'm going to change Blue's nickname to match my manager.

When I get White in English, my Pokemon are going to have the nicknames that I give my main Pokemon on all my games since FireRed. "Andrew" for my Mijumaru, "Ender" for my Tsutarja, and "Angel" for my Meguroco. It's just something that I do, and I don't plan on changing that tradition. I don't know about the rest of my team, but those three are planned on being on it.

Gigigear is Cogsworth

Shandera is Lumiere

My Janoby (m) is called Kzaär, my Munna is called Smoök, and my Monmen is called Köttn (should be Köttön but the stupid JP game only allows 5 letters).

They're all named after words in my conlang, namely "king", "smoke" and "cotton", respectively. :3

King Gumball
October 14th, 2010, 09:33 PM
Wait so there is only a max of 5 letter?! I really hope there will be more allowed in the English version. Gosh that cancels out loads of nicknames people would want to give to their pokemon.

Only in the Japanese Version, since the Japanese don't need alot of characters unlike the English language. It will most likely be boosted limit of 10 characters or whatever the limit it was in the past games.

Monkey trio - Oakey, Soakey, and Smokey. They sound so cute! :) Courtesy of BleuVII (http://www.pokecommunity.com/member.php?u=201567)

Might nickname the garbage Pokemon Garbagiga, still undecided... Courtesy of #Emochu (http://www.pokecommunity.com/member.php?u=230914).

Here some other names I might use should they not turn out as actual English names:

Iront/Aianto - possibly Antantium. Courtesy of elarmasecreta (http://www.pokecommunity.com/member.php?u=187387).

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/5/5e/Spr_5b_625.png
Kirikizan - possibly Huricanger/Huracanger (reference to Ninpuu Sentai Hurricanger). Always wanted to use that name in some context.

http://veekun.com:81/dex/media/black-white/621.png
Crimgan - possibly SkulDrache (means 'skull dragon', as it seems to have rib-like structures on its abdomen).

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/a/a2/Spr_5b_587.png
Emonga - possibly Sparky

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/5/5d/Spr_5b_612.png
Ononokusu - Battle-Axe or Axehead; most likely the first one due to the axe-shaped tusks. Something with the word "axe" in it, for sure.

Not nicknaming any of the legendaries, AFAIK right now.


~LOL at the thread title reference...!

Thanks for using my idea :)

I name most of my Pokes after Fighting game characters.

Futachimaru:Pit from SSBB but I'll change his name and give it to Zuruggu

Koromori: Cupid because hes that flying dude who makes people fall in love and it says in Kokoromori's dex entry that it makes people happy.

Kirkizan: Vega, a guy with a Talon claw thingy from Streetfighter.

Sazandora: Jason from Jason and the Arganauts(sp?) I think he killed a Hydra.

So I got five Pokemon until now and one of them is a Monmen from a trade so I couldn't name that one

I got a Fuchimijaru which I named Garca to Sergeant Garcia from Zorro

I got a Baoppu named Bacon

A Koromori named Rugby

And a Harderrier called BlDog (5char limit sucks :P)

Well, I don't own the game yet, but already chose some nicknames (at my sign)

Burungeru/Burungel♂ is SirJulian,or maybe just Julian just because it fits him well. Maybe not the king of the seas, but he certainly is noble.

Sazandora/Sazandra♀ will be named Nyx, as the ancient greek goddess of night. Maybe I'll change it to Erebus, titan of chaos and husband of Nyx if I choose to catch a male Sazandora...

Shinporaa/Shinboraa♂ will be Zapotec, which is the name of a pre-Columbian civilization, as it seems to be based on Nazca lines. Also it's a weird name for a weird (pseudo)bird :D

Warubiaru/Waruvial♂ is Vincent, as it sounds like a mean and cool name.

I had trouble naming my Nattorei♂, as he is a strange plant... So I just shortened it to Nate. Might be changing it when the US names are available, though...

and finally, Elecna (electric + aracna), my Denchura♂ :D

Zearth - Bokurano reference; the nickname's a corruption for 'The Earth', it is used to name the gigantic mecha within the series.

http://static.marriland.com/images/bw/sprites/front/norm/555_hihidaruma_front_norm.png
Darumatian - A portmanteau of Daruma and Dalmatian. Bonus points for Daruma being part of the pronunciation for Dalmatian in Japanese.

http://static.marriland.com/images/bw/sprites/front/norm/553_warubiaru_front_norm.png
Kamina - Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann reference; look at its V-shaped marking on its face. They're pretty much the identical to the mentioned character's epic shades.

http://static.marriland.com/images/bw/sprites/front/norm/534_roopushin_front_norm.png
Buggy - One Piece reference; the clown nose. Enough said.

http://static.marriland.com/images/bw/sprites/front/norm/609_shandera_front_norm.png
TimBurton - Specifically, The Night before Christmas reference. Its face is pretty reminiscent to that of the titular character's.

I don't really have too many notable ones that would make sense to most people...

But I named my Munna "Macho". BD

And the Fighting Legendary trio I named Herp, Derp, and Burp. I love giving silly names to legends. xD

I always give my Team Pokemon either Latin, Norse or mythical creature names. For example:
http://veekun.com/dex/media/black-white/516.png Neck: From the german river creature Wasserneck, more commonly known as Nöck.

http://veekun.com/dex/media/black-white/561.pngUdjat: Ancient Egypt for Eye of Horus.

http://veekun.com/dex/media/black-white/626.pngGaur: Taken from the wild Bovinae species Bos gaurus.

http://veekun.com/dex/media/black-white/628.pngHarpy: Taken from the Harpia harpyja species.

http://veekun.com/dex/media/black-white/635.pngHydra: Taken from the Lernaean Hydra creature of Greek mythology.

http://veekun.com/dex/media/black-white/615.pngFimbulvetr: Also known as Fimbul Winter in English. Though for that nickname I have to wait for the American/European release for obvious reasons.

I like using latin names on my pokemon, and I've already thought of plenty of pokes to name:

Jarlorda: Venon, cuz Venom means "poison" (but I thought Venon sounded cooler).
Waruvial: Ladron, cuz it means "thief". I think he looks criminal and kind of darkish imo.
Abagoora: Tortuga, means "turtle". I love this nickname, and it's original, clearly.
Denchura: Chincho, means "bug", and yet again i'm original. I think it sounds cute and cool at the same time.
Shanderaa: Corona(=crown), Sombra(=shadow) OR Chama(=fire). I'm leaning towards Corona, cuz I think the name suits it best, but I like em all.
Ononokusu: Machado, means "axe". Awesome name, i'm really proud of myself by finding it. :3
Wargle: Avi (=bird :3), suits it well imo.
Sazandora: Tremor (=fear) or Orrore (=horror). Cuz its scary..
Ulgamoth: Polilla (=moth). Yep, cute and well-suited.

Thats about it for now. :P

Right now, my Pokemon's names in my Pokemon White and Black are their original Japanese names. I won't name them until the English versions come out in Spring. I like to learn their Japanese names as I battle with them. Normally, I give my Pokemon Latin names corresponding to anything that relates to the Pokemon itself.

Fimbulvetr sounds like an awesome/epic name! :D From my research, it [Fimbulwinter] appears to be a term of Norse mythological origin that means great/big winter, said to prelude Ragnarok. Whatever that ice Pokemon is, I'm probably giving it that nickname (or any other ice Pokemon of greater magnitude)! :)

I plan on naming my Kibago Chau-Chau or Chauvelin because it learns the move guillotine later on. It comes from the Scarlet Pimpernel, the main antagonist is a French Revolutionary, where they would chop off aristocrats heads using the guillotine.

Recently came up with 2 more nicknames:

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/c/c8/Spr_5b_553.png
Waruvial's took me a while, but I finally settled on the nickname 10ACIOUS D (I haven't even listened to the band; I just think the name sounds cool!). :D The corrupted rendering of "tenacious" is to represent how steadfast and unyielding Waruvial appears to be after having been pissed off to a great extent :cer_shifty:. The "D" can represent desert or dunes (referencing Waruvial's Ground-typing) as well as the damage Waruvial will be dishing out. Not to mention it can also reference 'dile (as in crocodile).

Other nicknames I threw around were Jaws, Mr. Jaws, Big Red, Code Red (reserved for Tyranitar), and Crocodune (suggested by someone in another thread...).

http://archives.bulbagarden.net/media/upload/b/b6/Spr_5b_522.png
For the new electric zebra, I devised the nickname Grand Prix. IMO, the Pokemon seems like an intriguing blend of old-fashioned and modern means of transportation (horses and electronic vehicles, respectively). Additionally, it's one of the few Pokemon I know of that would be fitting for a traditional race. :)

Lol, the best name I could come up with for Waruvial is Zimbabwe, since it's based off of a crocodile n' all... (y'know... because some crocodiles live in Africa...? :x)

For this line, the nickname I decided on would definitely be Cashmere.
Yeah, it does seem kinda random, but since its dex entry states that it makes clothing for other Pokemon, I thought of Cashmere, as in cashmere sweaters or something. x3

Blue / Scarf / Zexer / Tara / Sugoi / Melodi
Aren't I creative~? :D;
Zexer, Tara, Sugoi, and Melodi are all written in their according Japanese characters in-game, but I'm too lazy to write those here.

I'd probably name Tepig (that is, if I end up picking him) Gui Montag, Zerg Toaster or Firebat.

Reminded me of a Firebat from Starcraft when I saw the last evolution. I'm not really one to nickname, but that's what I was thinking.
