Wait, what, no. Your pokemon's nicknames can only be changed by the original trainer, meaning the game where they came from. You're stuck with the names, sorry to say. You can TRY, but I doubt it'll be possible. The pokemon's caught/hatched thing is still there and other stuff as well.

I keep forgetting that our DCC is over here now.

If you do that, it likely won't pass for legality checks.

Well, I'd be essentially "tricking" the game into thinking I am the original trainer. I've always assumed that the game only checks the ID/SID combo since there is only about a 1 in 4 billion chance that they will be the same from game to game. This article on Bulbapedia (which I found while looking up the above statistic :P ) also supports that notion. I know it works in games within a generation, but I want to know if it works on migrated Pokémon as well.

Why not?
It might pass them, it'd be interesting to see what happened. It's like RNGing your IDs to match an events... as far as I know, only the TID needs to match to be able to rename.

According to the great Bulbapedia, all generations up to gen V, the tid and sid need to match, and in Generation V so does name and Gender

I received a Jirachi that the trainer ID/SID abused for (to have the same ID and SID as the event) and he nicknamed it. It passes checks, other than the thing that says event Pokemon can't be nicknamed.

You can find more about RNG world in it's actual place, the RNG Club. (:

Weird fact: I traded between my French Ruby and English Emerald. I pal parked an English Pokemon to my French SS, obtained via aforementioned trade and Aipom kept it's name after evolution O.O" It's still an AIPOM instead of CAPIDEXTRE. Weird stuff, because 4th Gen pokemon change their names between languages (My Torchic is now Galifeu - French for Combusken, my Gobou is now Marshtomp, same with JP mons).

Sadly, I think I have to retire from trading over Wi-Fi. I've been on lately, but not on the Trade Thread, considering I can't do anything. Some time ago, my mom changed our Wi-Fi's security to WPA so now I can't do anything regarding using Wi-Fi, since I have a Nintendo DS lite and I'm currently waiting for better games so I can get a 3DS. I have no knowledge on changing it my mom doesn't want to change it back.

tl;dr I missed the Rayquaza, other Japanese Wi-Fi events, Zekrom, Darkrai, and most likely going to miss Victini and I can't trade or battle outside of PO.

I am tired of Tornadus... Been trying to abuse him floor a bit now and I keep just missing. It's so frustrating that I just want to choke the troll until there are sparkles around that *****! LOL

And I am sorry to hear that Raichu. That must suck. Hopefully you can find a solution soon.

So I'm going to spoiler this. It contains BW2 spoilers that will provide useful for RNG abusers.

Spoiler:

New areas called 'Hidden Hollows' have been added to the game. In them you can find various Pokemon that regenerate every day into a new Pokemon/Item. These Pokemon have their DW abilities and aren't just Unova native. Serebii has a full list that have been found so far. Among them are Pokemon such as; Skill Link Minccino & Technician Breloom. Apparently they're shiny-blocked and male gender-locked. However the latter was proven false after someone caught a female Breloom. This is going to help us RNG abusers a lot aaaaa :D

Although they are not too difficult to find, here's some Hidden Hollow Locations. Hope this helps! I'm missing Route 2, 12, and Abundant Shrine, though.

Edit: Added Route 2 & Abundant Shrine. Feeling lazy.

Route 2

- Enter route from Accumula Town. It's above a female Veteran and to the left of this Lass.
Spoiler:



Route 3 (post-game)

- This one is shown on Serebii's site. The southern end of this route has tall grass.
Spoiler:



Route 5

- Enter route from Nimbasa. Head northeast. Bianca showed you this one.


Route 6

- Enter route from Driftveil. Go directly above the female Pokemon Breeder.
Spoiler:



Route 7

- Enter route from Mistralton. Take the stilts to go straight to the hidden hollow.
Spoiler:



Route 9

- Enter route from Opelucid. Head west, and past the shopping mall building, you'll find the hidden hollow tucked away in a corner.
Spoiler:



Route 13

- Enter route from Lacunosa. Head south, either taking the Cut shortcut or going through the grass (has female Pokemon Ranger). The hidden hollow is then to the left.
Spoiler:



Route 18 (post-game)

- Enter route via surfing from Route 17. Make your way to the house (where a female Ace Trainer heals your Pokemon). Go west and down the stairs, you'll see the hidden hollow.
Spoiler:



Route 22

- Enter route from Shizui's town (8th gym). Take an upper route and find Terrakion. Go east through grass and get to the female Ace Trainer. Take the stilts with the S patterns. Take another set of stilts leading you to the hidden hollow.
Spoiler:



Route 23

- Enter route from Victory Road gates. Head southeast and take the bridge heading south. After that first bridge, go right. From the fighting-type trainer, go down. Continue on this path then and you will find the hidden hollow at the dead end.
Spoiler:



Sangi Ranch

- Enter ranch. Head northward into the grassier area (the area you fought a Plasma grunt). Surf right.
Spoiler:



Giant Chasm

- Enter route from Giant Chasm cave. Go straight up, and you'll find the hidden hollow in the first grass patch you touch.
Spoiler:



Abundant Shrine

- Enter area. It's northeast, near a Youngster.
Spoiler:



Lostlorn Forest

- Enter forest. Go to the northernmost wall. The hidden hollow is above the male Pokemon Ranger.
Spoiler:



Pinwheel Forest (post-game)

- Enter route from Skyarrow Bridge. Head south and enter the gap in the fence on the right. Make your way to the river and surf left.
Spoiler:

They aren't. People had problems with hitting their seeds, so they thought they're shiny blocked but they're not.
The only catchable shiny blocked Pokemon is Zekrom/Reshiram.
Edit: and N's Pokemon, but those are gifts

Oh. I thought RNG was the same?
Except for breeding, I think you said.
I wish I could play.
