I usually don't nickname my Pokémon, but decided to do it this time around. (: I've named my Pikachu "Elecouse," a combination of the words electric and mouse. My Blaziken—I've named it "Firghter." It's a mixture of fire and fighter. Not very original, but hey, at least it's a bit creative! And finally, I've named my Scizor "Rebuissor," a mash-up of red, bug, and scissor.

In my X Team I have:
• Sophie - female Mienshao [nicknamed from Meerkat Manor]
• Mozart - male Watchog [nicknamed from Meerkat Manor]
• Tosca - female Linoone [nicknamed from Meerkat Manor]
• Xandra - female Pyroar [nicknamed from online comic]
• Milo - male Meowstic [nicknamed from movie "Milo & Otis"]
• Flowers - female Floatzel [nicknamed from Meerkat Manor]

almost forgot: my starter in X was Zaphod the Chespin [nicknamed from Meerkat Manor] but I left it on the PC once I caught Mozart on route 15.

Now that I have my Y team started, I have:
[note: nicknames are in Katakana - since I"m playing the game in Japanese]
• Todd [トードー] - male Fennekin [nicknamed from Beavis & Butthead]
• Castor [カストール] - male Bidoof [nickname is Spanish for beaver]
• Sakura [サクラ] - female Zigzagoon [nickname I heard that name somewhere]

Restarted Y team - and decided to stay with English... next post has the nicknames

Trainer: Scarlett
It's a French girl name meaning red, where Pokemon all began and my version is the red one, Y.

Starter: Colette the Chesnaught
She was female on my first try, so I did not have a nickname planned. Since I started my Sapphire version as Nicole and my female (first try) Treecko as Scarlet, I switched the two up. Colette is another variant of Nicole then, which means victory.

Team Members:
Terry the Talonflame, after my uncle who passed away shortly before XY's launch.
Lulu the Florges, named after Luke because he bought Y for me and wanted to be a Fairy type.
Devona the Dragalge, a French girl name meaning divine.
Sybille the Delphox, a French girl name meaning prophetess.

And suddenly I see that I can't break free, I'm
Slipping through the cracks of a dark eternity;
With nothing but my hate and the paralyzing agony
To tell me who I am, who I was; Uncertainty
Enveloping my mind till I can't break free; And
Maybe it's a dream, maybe nothing else is real
But it wouldn't mean a thing if I told you how I feel
So I'm tired of all this pain, of the misery inside
And I wish that I could live feeling nothing but the night.

i based my pokemon off the trojan war because... well it's the trojan war.

greninja - hector: named after the greatest trojan warrior in the trojan war.
tyrantrum - aias: the strongest achaean fighter, described as being rather colossal in size.
aegislash - aegis: zeus' shield or buckler.
lucario - heracles: the greatest of greek heroes.
meowstic - psyche: goddess of the soul. although i plan to rename her athena, as it seems to fit in more with my team.
blaziken - achilles: would have been, if not for the fact that he is an event pokemon, making nicknaming impossible. achilles is the greatest warrior in the iliad.
venusaur - odysseus: master mariner and soldier. although thinking about it now, a more appropriate nickname for venusaur would be apollo.
lapras - xanthos: zeus' talking horse lol

Here are some of the nicknames I gave my Pokemon:

Chesnaught - Espada (had wanted to name him Spike but the game wouldn't allow me )

Aegislash - Soul Calibur (so glad it was able to fit!)

I tried not nicknaming the new Pokemon as much because I wanted to learn their names.

My liteleo/pryroar Regulus, after the brightest star in the leo consstellation. All of my other Pokemon have ridiculous names. My Absol is named Abby, as usual, and my croagunk is named Biohazard, which is actually kinda cool.

I actually have never Nicknamed any of my pokemon ever in my life until recently where I changed the name of my IV breeding pairs to "IV".

I nicknamed all my Pokemon after different drugs.
Delphox was Delorazepam, Blastoise was Clonazepam, Garchomp was Bromazepam, Gengar was Estazolam, Yveltal was Pyrazolam and Raichu was Zolpidem. That was the team I used to defeat the League, but right now, I'm still sorting my team out. Once I've sorted everything out, I'll probably give a new batch of nicknames to my new team. Probably also drug related. XD

Garchomp, bred with perfect IVs, with the mega stone, named Toothless. Toothless is my favorite character in one of my favorite movies, every time I see How To Train Your Dragon, I think of playing Pokemon. Seeing the mega of Garchomp just made the connection, the difference is that my Toothless is female.

My Abomasnow with mega is named Jack Frost, it just fits.

Lety is a reference to The Fast and The Furious, a Talonflame with gale wings.

Those are the only three that really stand out. Most of the other names I choose are some reference to their original names or types, like a Scizor named Blade.

I just recently replaced half my team; so I have some leveling to do. X3
Also, I can't decide who my 6'th team member will be. I think I want a fair-type, but I'm not sure... (I'm sort of thinking about Jigglypuff or Mawile)

"Espada"? Ten blades? How does that even work?!
