          I never really nickname my Pokemon, because I am bad in this kind of things.

            I usually nickname my starter. In the FireRed I just nicknamed my Bulbasaur Bulbasir. My Cyndaquil is Flame.

            Nope, I hardly ever nickname my Pokemon; so the starters I chose in each region aren't exceptions.

            I did <3, I love giving my Pokemon nicknames that are cute and simple :3. If I remember correctly, I called my Turtwig Basil and my Totodile Jaws <33.

            No, I always tend to never nickname my team and my starter is no exception.

            Yes, in Platinum my Piplup was nicknamed Czar, and my Cyndaquil was nicknamed Ty (both names given with their final evolution in mind).

              Infernape - Razu. Named it after a friend of mine
              Empoleon - Genis. named it after a character in Tales of Symphonia
              Torterra - Tiny. Named it that because... well Oxymoron or whatever.
              Feraligatr - Cooly. For Nostaglia.

              Never got a Typhosion or Meganium as starters for this generation. Or at least as my very first Pokemon.

                  I only nickname starters if I already have an idea for the name, or I am going to use it in game. If not, I usually just give it its normal name.

                    I nickname during my play through of games. (:

                    My starter in HeartGold was a Chikorita named Mint.

                      And Cutey the Chikorita, because that's what I named my Chikorita in Crystal!

                          I never ever used to name my Pokemon, but now I'm obsessed with nicknames! They have to have them, even if they're the dumbest most boring names you can imagine.

                          I haven't played through any Gen IV games in quite a while (though I want to do Diamond Version really soon), where I'll definitely pick Piplup and perhaps name it... Sashimi? I named my Samurott that in Gen V and loved it, it goes excellent with most Water-types cx

                          In HGSS I always pick Chikorita, and I almost always end up nicknaming it the stereotypical Sakura, which is perfect for Meganium!

                            In 2nd gen my Totodile was (and will always be) Crocogator, but I could never really come up with anything good enough for the others.

                            I nicknamed my Chimchar as 'Charter', and for Chikorita I give it 'Megaleaf'.

                            I typically nickname all of my Pokemon (with a few exceptions, like Pokemon I'm going to trade to other people or don't care about at all). I named my starter after my trainer name, as I have done in every generation thus far.

                              Yep! I named my Piplup Pengi. It was the first Pokemon I ever got to Level 100!
