This one is really epic.

+No, I don't rename my Pokémons. I like nicknames but then they feel less authentic for some reason.

Going to call my Greninja Jiraya. The rest of team already have names.

Yay! I'm not the only monster hunter fan in the west!
(But srsly, I love you right now.)

Quote originally posted by Melonfrog:
Kabutops = Kabukurosu, fuses Kabu with Kill in Japanese.
Kurosu? Did you mean Korosu? Still a pretty good idea, though I wouldn't have gone for that specific word.
Kabutops' name comes from Kabuto (Samurai Helmet), and/or Kabutogani (Horseshoe crab), so I'd pick a word that goes well with it, like Gusoku (A type of Samurai armor). Maybe Kabugusoku or something, I dunno.

Maybe I'm digging too much into this, feel free to ignore me ;__;

As for my team, I've got:

Cannon, my Vaporeon.
Yojimbo, my Rotom-H.
Clint West, my Ludicolo.
Roberto, my Machamp.
Zafwald, my Bisharp.
And finally, Poncho, my Garchomp.

Looking back, I have no idea where I got half of these names.
Since I specially breed my pokes, I'll generally go through a box of babies before I find the right one, and since I name every baby, I usually get really odd names. I never bother to rename them, because they all grow on me so much, .

More Nicknames I've used!

Gibson and Egon the Krookodile(s) (Gibson, after the guitar manufacturer.. -TELL ME he doesn't sound like a guitar chord when he comes out- Egon, because the set I used was an attempt at dealing with Mega Gengar.. I had devious plans afoot.. heh heh heh.. Egon is a ghost buster for you guys too young to know)
Mashiro the Hawlucha (Named after the Bleach Vizard character.. it was female as well, and I thought the character would make a prefect Hawlucha.. It also knows Hi Jump Kick)
Brinks the Forretress (See, back in the day ADT was known as Brinks Home Security.. OBSCURE REFERENCE!)
Noctl the Umbreon (this one is a classic from G/S ..first Umbreon was named this, and my new Umbreon in X/Y is as well)
Capis the Swellow (a play on the name the swallows these guys are based on migrate to)

Typically I don't nickname my Pokemon - I like their real names. But I made an exception for my shiny Ivysaur, that I just caught in the friend safari. :3 When I looked at the status screen I noticed that I had caught a female Ivysaur. I named her "Grelle" after a grim reaper from the Black Butler series, because of shiny Ivysaur's coloring that lime green/goldish yellow. those colors are sorta the same ones that all grim reapers have in their eyes. :3

Bisharp: Slice
Amoonguss: Edible

I usually name my pokemon after those who are close to me~ (I wont divulge names out of respect for privacy) I always match up pokemon personalities with their personalities or at least their poke favs.

My Seviper is named Takeshi after Kamen Rider Ouja
Skorupi/Drapion is named Tsurugi after Kamen Rider Sasword always, those two never change.

My main team was:

Chesnaught - Conquer (A play on the word Conker, as that's what it's based on.)
Tyrantrum - Tiny (Pretty self explanatory. It's a mini t-rex that turns into a giant one, what can I say?)
Lapras - Lappatron200 (I was hanging out with my friends, and I asked my one friend who doesn't play Pokémon what I should name this and showed him a Lapras. He said "It looks like a robot. Lappatron2000". That didn't fit though. )
Pyroar - Aslan (Narnia!)
Talonflame - Katniss (Hunger Games!)
Sylveon - Evelyn (I have a neice called Evelyn, but we nickname her Evie, pronounced the same as Eevee. I had to)

And since this is fun I'll include some of my shinies' nicknames too :D
Spoiler:

Fennekin - Seamus - Seamus Finnigan from Harry Potter had a fox patronus.
Altaria - Lakitu - Mario reference! (The guy in the cloud)
Noibat - Argorok - Zelda reference! (The last boss in Twilight Princess - a WYVERN (oft mistaken for a dragon).
Dragonite - Gadzooks - The Last Dragon Chronicles reference! (Gadzooks was the first dragon, a little green one :3)
Yanma - Sparx - Sypro reference! (Sparx the dragonfly!)

I've build a competitive team and usually I don't nickname them but now I will:

Froslass: Cold Blood or Tequila? Anyone a preference?
Scyther: 2Dashing
Gengar: Hannibal
Slowbro: Scramble
Politoed: Butterbelly
Weavile: Deathwish, Deathkiss, Pegasus or Bandit

Any preferences on Weavile and Froslass? You can suggest some as well but I will probably pick out of these :D

PS: Wish I had a fire Pokémon in my team to call it Toastem (a)

I don't really give nicknames, apart from to Gengar. I always call them Legion.

"My name is Legion: for we are many." Just feel like it's fitting for them.
