I always, ALWAYS, have to nickname EVERYTHING I catch. Everything. Even if the only idea I have is a really ****** one, I just MUST have a nickname for it.

People don't nickname their Pokemon? Wow.

I say that every time I hear about this. Seriously... nicknaming your Pokemon makes them your colleagues and gives them an identity, as opposed to just a species. Would you like it if someone always called you "HUMAN" or "PERSON" or "HOMO SAPIEN" or something like that? Would you name your fish "FISH" or your dog "DOG" or cat "CAT" etc.?

Of course your Pokemon need a name. That's why you have to nickname them.

If I feel like a Pokemon reminds me of, or can somehow be linked to them, I often nickname my Pokemon after some of the people I know here on PC, although otherwise I don't really nickname my Pokemon. When I eventually do it where it's not related to PC, it's just something generic because I just want to give it a nickname, like naming Tepig "Piglet" lol. So yeah, it's kinda half-half about nicknames.

I sometimes nickname my Pokemon due to their type, gender or something.
I named my female Lucario "Lucia" like the fighter Lucia from the SNES game, Final Fight 3.
I also nicknamed my female Luxray "Thundra."

Sometimes I give a nickname a lot of thought, but other times I just give it a generically funny name - like a Typhlosion named Flareburst with a Mightyena named Fito lol.

I always case my nicknames to match the style of the generation. Like with Gen I-III Pokémon they'll be named in all caps, but in Gen IV and V they'll be title case. Its a quirk of mine ;).

Usually it feels randomly generated when it comes to nicknaming my Pokemon which I tend to do to the ones I plan to use.

Sometimes I give them nicknames based off their possible origin, what they look like, the species they might be based off of, etc. Sometimes I name them after usernames of friends I know. Sometimes I just name them sex names just for the heck of it (I know, I'm so mature aren't I :3)

But Nicknames kind of give that interaction between you and Pokemon and it makes it kind of feel like your own special character that you developed. Nicknaming is just part of the fun.
