Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

Was just wondering how he felt about being named after something with an axe for a face, if he found it amusing or if he didn't know.

    Here is a list of Pokemon who I named:
    • Snivy (f) => Smuglord (I realized that my Snivy was a female after I named her...)
    • Tepig (m) => Kiai (I think it's like energy or something?)
    • Oshawott (m) => Derpderp (I thought it was a cute name for a cute pokemon)
    • Lillipup (f) => Asahina (She was cute, so I thought of Mikuru from The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
    • Audino (m) => Jenesepa (Corrupted French for "I don't know")
    • Patrat (m) => Edward (I saw that it was called the "Scout Pokemon" so I thought of an old cartoon called "Camp Lazlo")
    • Ducklett (m) => Tubbiewubb (I thought of bathtubs, and scrubbing, but it ended up sounding like "Tummy Rub")
    • Munna (f) => Megurine (Named after a Vocaloid who sang a song called "Dream Eater")
    • Pansage, Pansear, Panpour (m,m,m) => Laellos, Lelales, Dasderdie (Different ways of saying the word "the" in Spanish, French, and German)
    • Throh, Sawk (m,m) => Cremassa, Caustholo (The first one is "Massacre" rearranged and the second one is "Holocaust" rearranged)
    • Cryogonal => Kuraiogna (Corruption of its English name)
    I always try to make the nicknames at least sound either unique, completely random, utterly left-fielded, or in another language, yet I always end up making it relate to the pokémon.

      When I started, I chose Oshwatt.
      And I nicknamed it "Otto".

        I named Oshawott Sebastian,
        I named Pansear Stephen and
        Roggenrola Gaia (the goddess of earth in Greek mythology).

        After I catch them I'll name my Petilil Lilianne and Solosis will be Roderick.

        I always give them human names.

            Yup, there's one within one of the buildings in Castelia.
            This doesn't relate to the original nicknames of your Pokemon, though :(

            Best to ask in simple questions next time.

              Sorry about that.

              I nicknamed my Emboar - Bacon
              Krookodile - Kryki


              Thats all I have right now

              I have a tendency of naming my Pokemon after other Pokemon, like Bulbasaur the Serperior. I really should stop doing that.

                I only have one Pokemon right now since my entire dream team is route 7+

                My little Tepig was named Tank. I feel that was appropriate for his final evolution. Plus he is bold in nature, so he is a legit defense tank.

                  My current Black team:

                  Apple (Snivy) - Just thought this one was fitting for a snake! Especially one like Snivy.
                  Twoface (Cohagrigus) - Because he has two faces! Plain and simple.
                  Guy-Man (Scrafty) - From Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, my favorite Daft Punk!
                  Darmani (Darmanitan) - This one was so painfully obvious, I couldn't resist. For those who don't know, he gets his name from the great Goron hero from Zelda: Majora's Mask.
                  Joule (Eelektross) - From the SI unit of energy.
                  Maple (Beartic) - Inspired by the Canadian flag.

                  And some others that I like...

                  Oshum (Oshawott) - Because he's Oshawott. And he's awesome (Okay, so this one's a little corny, but I still like it )
                  Moxie (Emolga) - I just like this word. It sounds cool, and not only that, but this particular Emolga is Bold natured as well, so it fits.
                  Bravo (Pansage) - Don't know why, but this one just seemed to click.

                  Oh god, my nicknames for Pokémon are interesting. XD I have as of right now:

                  >> A Samurott named Apollo (after Apollo Justice lolll)
                  >> An Excadrill named Mitsurugi (from Soulcalibur, idk why though)
                  >> A Scraggy named Jupiter (I seriously don't know)
                  >> A Sigilyph named Tetris (it's so colourful!)
                  >> A Zebstrika named Comet (there's Dasher and Dancer and Donner and Blitzen... Zebstrika isn't even a reindeer so what is my logic.)
                  >> A Litwick named Shiro (Japanese for White; thought it would be fitting because it's Pokémon White, yannow)

                  They're not the strangest, but they're so random. I don't even.

                    These are the Pokemon currently on my team and what I call them:

                    Dewott- Mijumaru, simply because of the fact that I like the Japanese name of its first stage better

                    Herdier- Sploded, because of the exploded face it has on its first stage

                    Pansear- Ace, because he was my ace-in-the-hole against Cilian

                    Tranquill- Popcorn, because it's a pigeon

                    Sawk- Blue Man, take a guess as to why I call it that

                    Blitzle- Jay Hawk, Machinima Call of Duty 24 day Livestream reference

                      I called Tepig, 'Fire-Pig' and Oshawott 'Otty.'

                      They seem really plain but ever since they were unveiled, thats what I've been calling them.

                      When I get Snivy, 'Smugleaf' or 'D.Cameron' will be his name.

                            My game is in the other room, let's see if I can do this by memory... Some are very boring btw!

                            Dewott - Shallie (I didn't know he was a boy lol)
                            Musharna - Sailor Muu (I'm very proud of this one)
                            Victini - Teeni (original, I know)
                            Sawk - Kicker
                            Tranquill - Dovely
                            and right now I can't decide who to replace Simisear with O.o

                                I have a compulsion to name all my Pokémon in a running theme, and it annoys me when I run out of names, or can't think of one... so this time I'm naming my Pokémon in alphabetical order, with Victorian-style names.

                                My current team (you can see where I've switched out Pokémon for new ones with this system, which I kind of like):
                                Althalus (Servine)
                                Dorian (Purrloin, I thought Dorian Gray was a fitting reference)
                                Friedrich (Munna)
                                Ingrid (Drilbur)
                                Katherine (Tympole)
                                Lucian (Timburr)

                                When I get to Z, I'm going to start going backwards until I reach A again, and so on. I'm hoping to get a big range of names this way

                                        When I first started out I named my Oshawott Eenie. Me and my friend Whitey wanted to match with the names. And for some reason we went with Eenie and Meenie. When I got to Castelia though I changed that, because Eenie just doesn't sound right with a Samurott, haha.

                                        Samurott- Neptune. When it comes to water pokemon I tend to give them names from water-like gods/godesses or names of water-like beings, such as sirens. Just look at my blastoise. He's forever named Poseidon.

                                        Zebristika- Zeus. I was in a greek-y mood. xD But it works too, since he shoots lightning beams of death, and this pokemon does too.

                                        Reuniculu- Neon. I like neon green, and it was of a color similar to that. Not to mention it just sounded very psychic to me.

                                        Scolipede- Lilith. Lilith, according to christianity, is a demon. Scolipede just oozes demonic tendencies to me; It's so badass looking and scary. Also the name Lilith reminds me of the color purple, and Scolipede is purple.

                                        Simisear- Coco. I managed to get a female simisear on my first try. If it was a boy I was going to name him charcoal, but I never got the boy, so I had to improvise. I named her Coco after the coal part of the word.

                                        Krookodile- Jazmine. Princess Jazmine is my favorite disney princess. The story also takes place in the middle east, where there are deserts rampant. Because I found a female krookodile first, and I found her in a desert, I named her Jazmine.
