I usually arrange my trades online, where I ask the trader to nickname the Pokemon to my liking. In the case where I am just trying to obtain the Pokemon's species, I don't care about the name- I will most likely just breed it to get desired nature and gender.

I personally love nicknaming Pokemon. Especially when I make teams and make a theme out of it.

I love nicknaming Pokemon and when I request a trade with someone, I usually have them nickname the Pokemon for me. I don't ever use the GTS or random trades though, so I can't say I ran into a nicknamed Pokemon that bothered me. I generally don't like all caps names or really crappy names, like Sparky the Shinx or something. It's not that bad, but it's pretty generic.

All the Pokemon I offer in my shop are nicknamed, so if you don't request a new name or the name to be removed, you're stuck with the name. :P I'm good at naming them though!

I, being the indecisive person I am, generally go between nick naming my Pokemon and not nicknaming them, changing their names with the Name Rater, and then changing their names again.

Like I said, really indecisive.

I used to NEVER name my Pokemon, and it drove me crazy when I would get nicknamed Pokes in a trade. But I actually started nicknaming when online trading was introduced. It was always fun to see what nicknames you'd get from other people!

I bought a used copy of Ruby recently and when I turned it on, there was still a save file on it. Some jerk had named his Pokemon all vulgar, gross names, so I renamed all of them and transferred them to another game and erased the file. Kinda silly, but I felt bad for them! I think eventually I might transfer them to Gen IV and offer them as rescue Pokes to people.

The previous owner of that game was a jerk. If you're going to sell your game or trade one of Pokémon away, make sure the OT/nicknames are age appropriate with the game's target audience. I wouldn't want to be the parent explaining to their child why someone nicknamed stunfisk ********. Not that I've ever nicknamed derpfisk something vulgar. >.>

I actually prefer the Pokémon I receive in trades to be nicknamed. I, myself, nickname ALL my Pokémon. Not because I want to leave my mark or anything, but because it's easier to tell the difference between my Pokémon that way.
If I had 10 Clefairies and was going to trade a few of them away because they didn't get the right nature or whatever, it's much more easier for me to think: "So Barbie, Venus and Cookie have Magic Guard as their ability? Might as well, put them up for trading"

I'm not a fan of nicknames, so I rarely use them on any Pokemon. However, there were a few that I did nickname. For instance: I called my Darumaka 'Moltblob' and Virizion 'Vertelope', because I thought these original names didn't make any sense.

I as well like to nickname practically every Pokémon I catch, I use influences from different countries and history for the names I choose for my Pokémon.

For instance, I have a Pidgeotto in SS, that I named Ciel-Feng which means "Heaven's Feel" using French(Ciel) and Chinese(Feng). Another Pokémon, Froslass, I named "Weiss Lili" which is essentially White in German and a varient of the name "Lili" after the flower.

As a general rule, I don't like them, but good nicknames don't bother me. Like if they named it Poop Face. Or Rachel.

When I actually do nickname pokémon, it's usually just the pokémon I'm using to play through the game, and I generally do it kind of like the in-game trades do it: a play on the name (as an RPer, I probably imagine this is how you'd do it in real life as well if it wasn't one of those made-up, name irrelevant nicknames). My White 2 team is Pora, Sepe, Aefa, Neta, Abby, and Lye. Any guesses?

I name all mine after my favorite beverages. Right now, my lineup is "Scotch", "Moonshine", "Tropius"(traded), "Bourbon", "Absinthe", and "Vodka"!

I sometimes nickname pokemon I'm actually using. Other than that, I don't nickname anything. Depending on the playthrough, sometimes I use nicknames to ID HM Slaves, sometimes I don't. And finally, when trading between my own games, sometimes I have nothing to give the other game in return and will just catch a random pokemon and call it Worthless (and then subsequently release the poke or restart the game, depending on what the trades were done for)

I don't mind NN'd pokemon. Though I do hate it when i get a NN'd legendary/stupid name. I recently got a Latios named "BURN!" and Volcorona named "DaFukAmI?"

On my SoulSilver I had a Torterra named Twiggy/Twiglet, Gengar named Spook, and a few others I can't even remember xD

I nickname them occasionally, provided if I know a nice name for it, but most of the times, its me being random.

I don't mind nicknames from the other party, provided if its nice/has a meaning behind it.

I prefer to let my trader nickname their Pokemon. I'd rather read out their nicknames as it shows respect for the person and it shows they loved their Pokemon to the end.

I hate nicknames. But I'm not bothered if it was from a trade.

I'm so weird, huh?

I never name my Pokemon. When I receive one with a nickname, I normally just change it unless it's Japanese, then I just leave it because it looks cool. Haha

I don't nickname my own Pokemon because I am very uncreative. I don't mind receiving nicknames as long as they aren't offensive or vulgar.

What do you mean you change it? You have to cheat/hack to change nicknames from other people 0.o

Maybe the Pokémon he gets are Basic so they can have their nickname changed when they evolve. Then again, I'm not sure if you can still do that. XD

Pokemon's names only change if they are evolved under 3 different conditions. That would be:
1. Pokemon with capitalized names from previous generations
2. Pokemon with a foreign name
3. hacked Pokemon with a hacked nickname that didn't set off the nickname flag.

If the Pokemon has a legit nickname, it will not change when it is evolved; and chances are; if it's name changes and it isn't a foreign one, it is hacked. Also, there are no Pokemon games in which the nickname changes if it evolves if I recall correctly.

I dont really mind nicnamed pokemon
I generally trade lvl 1 for lvl 1, so if I dont like the nicname, I just breed myself a new one and trade the original back out.

I did, however, recently trade my personal munchlax, Tubbington, *face>palm* didn't mean to do that.

I like nicknaming the Pokemons I use. If I set them up for trading, I leave them with their original names, except the freebies I give from time to time.
