Sometimes I don't mind. Kind of annoying if it's a cringey name on a 'mon though, eg. I wouldn't want a MLP/generic anime/edgy name (eg. xXShadowLordXx) /overall annoying name on my main Pokémon. Kind of wish GF would let us change traded Pokémon's nicknames at max happiness, but unfortunately I don't think that'll ever happen.

I'm a Nuzlocker, so often I nickname everything I catch by habit, it's rare for me to not nickname a Pokemon. Whenever I get a traded Pokemon with a nickname I just change it with the Name-rater and give it a better one.

I personally don't mind receiving nicknamed Pokemon so long as they do not have mean nicks.

I got a handful of Pokemon with mean nicknames from Wonder Trade (and the GTS, occasionally), and I couldn't help but feel bad for the poor virtual thing.

I'm not most creative one when it comes to giving nicknames, so the nicknamed ones are kept for self use. lol

I don't mind receiving any nicknamed ones as long as they aren't bizarre or mean.

I tend to nickname my best Pokémon, and have spent hours on end before coming up with a suitable name for them. Usually, it ends up being tied with a history I've had with them, or the role I plan on them being.

One of my favorites, for example, was Royal Pain, a Latios that I still have.

One that I spent a month breeding out of scratch is Warhammer, the Azumarill.

It's not all about the stats or the fight. It's all about who the characters are, and what they do.
