          Pengus! The Metapod, koff~

          Don't even think of touching my Pengus! I've named so many Pokemon that it'd be hard to choose just one. I think the random ones that hold no purpose might be a bit embarrassing, but these are usually bred Pokemon I'll be releasing, koffi~

              Pokemon embarrassing nicknames, boy where do i begin...?
              Want a wall of text?

              Well back in the 4th gen, if you were seven i was...10? yeah something like that, I bought Pokemon Pearl because they ran out of Diamond and i had a load of money with me.
              Because of that, i had developed a form of hatred towards every pokemon i caught, and that is why i got these nicknames:

              Starly "Bird-X"....YEAH, Became my 1st lvl 100 and i was so happy i passed out.
              Ditto "Gum" because he looked like a just spit it out of my mouth.
              Onix "Unicorn" because i really didnt know what to call him....

              AND...

              Empoleon: "Anna"...it was a boy....DAMN.

              But i had some good names thoughout the years like:

              Derpeon the Eevee
              Kaede the Chikorita
              Holly sh*t the Riolu....
              and others

                My most embarrassing nickname:

                Tepig:

                Never mind the fact that the Arceus-damned thing sucked when I first got it, I was an insensitive little brat a couple years back. I named the damn thing "Fatty." It was my first level 100, and I beat the elite four with Fatty (now an Emboar) as a solo runner. I was so ashamed I took him to the name rater in Castelia City, and changed his name to Joe. Then I shoved Joe into a PC box and since I beat the game, I saw the need to go crazy with an Action Replay.

                  Even as a kid I never nicknamed my Pokémon. I just prefer calling them by their real name. I also get satisfaction in seeing the evolved forms names. Like when my Combusken evolved into Blaziken, I wanted to see the name Blaziken, not Torchy or something lol.

                    Ooh god, when I was little I always used to watch my brothers play final fantasy so I decided to name my female charmander in fire red Sephiroth. In all caps.
                    I'd never even played final fantasy myself.

                      Ah, the joys of looking back to your first Pokemon game and saying to yourself, "Oh, sweet Arceus, what was I thinking?"

                      But! That's not why I'm here. I'm here to report a cruel, saddening joke played on me. For the backstory on this, just go to the spoiler below... It's a sad tale. But still a better love story that Twilight.

                      My friend named a Beautifly "MISSINGNO." and traded it to over Wi-Fi so I couldn't read the nickname... Ugh, the pixelated monster...

                      Spoiler:

                      To little 7 year old me, butterfly Pokemon always had a special place in my heart because they were almost always the first Pokemon you caught. Yeah, I had my Piplup, travelling thru Sinnoh. Shinx? Easy out. Bidoof? Cool, but please. Starly? Not a chance. It wasn't until I saw a Wurmple for the first time that I actually caught a Pokemon. My Beautifly was my best friend as well as my Empoleon. Life was good. Empoleon, Beautifly, Dustox, Mothim, Staraptor, and Luxray. But Beautful, the cleverly named Beautifly (*facepalm*), always had a special place in my heart.

                      But little did I know that our fun would soon end...
                      Spoiler:

                      I just had to catch this pixelated abomination. But, this was not my idea originally, oh no. My friend's elder brother is the one who got my friend and I into Pokemon. He told me about the ultimate Pokemon, telling me this totally false story about how the creators of Pokemon wanted to make an ultra powerful Pokemon that could never be defeated, unless it was battling it's own kind. This Pokemon was the Creator of All, and it was the ancestor of all Pokemon, thus could learn all moves. They liked this idea right up until they were about to mass produce the game. Unable to take the Pokemon out without postponing the release date of Pokemon Diamond and Pearl, they simply took out the sprite, but not the data, and replaced it with Arceus. That data was buried under a ton of coding, and never implemented into the game. Seems like a pretty legit and elaborate story for a twelve year old. I'm almost fourteen, I should know.

                      Anyways, I allowed him to alter my game with a GameHackerThing. I don't really remember what he used. Well, I caught He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named. Gah, I can't even bring myself to say it's name anymore. I was pretty proud of myself, until I realized...
                      Spoiler:


                      I'd lost my best friend to this thing of death. It had murdered my Beautifly with no regrets, or second thought. Then disposed of it's lifeless body into the pits of Pokemon Diamond Version where no Pokemon, dead or alive, had ever come out of. Countless friends have been lost to, dare I even say it's name? No, I can do this. Countless friends have been lost to the pixelated sprite of despair, this image of doomsday. These friends, innocent Pokemon that have done nothing to harm anyone, were stabbed in the back with a rusty knife, by this once-thought friend. They were destroyed, never to be seen again, their life was simply erased. Who this heartless hybrid half-breed of a Pokemon is, if it even is a Pokemon, no one will ever know. It's purpose, lost in the depths of coding. This creature of destruction's name:
                      MissingNo.

                      I hope you all enjoyed my short story/personal experience on how I lost my best friend to this THING. Yeah, I kinda rambled on at the end, but hey. I can get overly creative sometimes.

                        I have to say i have many embarassing nicknames i give my pokemon - It's part of our childhood to do so. But.... I still do this today XD

                        I name all of my electric pokemon something that ends in "Z".

                        So yeah, as you can imagine, I've come up with such clever names like:
                        VOLTZ
                        SPARKZ
                        BOLTZ
                        and
                        WYRE

                        wait a second... that last one doesnt have a Z in it!
                        That's because i named that Magneton when i was *gasp* 15 years old!
                        lol yup, all part of our childhood.

                          lol Y'all think I actually remember what I name my pokemon? The only ones I'd nickname are the ones I'd KNOW I'd trade to someone else. I'd go to Name Rater, just to be a jerk to my buddy's new owner.

                            Named my Snorlax "Fatass" and "Fathead" when I was younger. And Miltank was renamed "Fat Cow".

                              I named my Venusaur JUNGLEDOOM, my Blastoise SHELLSHOCK and my Charizard... FIREDRAGON. I just wanted to fill out the 10 letter space you got :] I think Pikachu was named THUNDERKID. Oh lord.

                              But seriously, jungledoom. JUNGLEDOOM. That Venusaur, you don't want to meet on a dark street.

                                  Oh yeah also i had a huge fight with my younger brother last year and i went on to breed a Piplup and call him "Ariel" (that is my bros' name)...and i shoved Surf,Waterfall,Rock smash and another HM on him, the ultimate slave.....I still owned him until recently because he had a great nature, but he was shoved so deep in my PC my PC's rectum hurts. So a week ago i had to say goodbye to this awesome pokemon...And deleted his sorry ass.

                                  Haha I had named my miltoic "Beauty" in Pokemon Diamond. Yeah, I liked the name at the time but think it pretty embarrassing now. My friends saw the name and gave me a bunch of crap about it but I didn't really care. I wish I had named it something else, but oh well.

                                  My favorite name for a Pokemon ever as when I named my Lugia "Ultima"!

                                      One time, when I was finishing up a route before stopping to sleep, I caught Abomasnow that I named "Frosty". I refused to look at him after that.

                                      I never nicknamed my pokemon pre-GenV. Having all-caps nicknames would have bugged me, and having lower-case nicknames would have bugged me when contrasted with all the NPCs having all-caps on their pokemon.

                                      That said, even though I've only been nicknaming my pokemon for the past three years or so, I'm prone to some pretty immature and inappropriate ones. French Kiss the Lickitung and Raeper the Drapion immediately come to mind

                                        I have this really bad habit of naming Ampharos Jackie if that counts by any means.
                                        I've named Geodudes Dude, Dudette and the like. In Y version I have a Mewtwo named Macklemore and a shiny Octillery named The Smash. I also have a Noivern named GOTTAGOFAST and in my White version I believe I have a Ditto named Herma. A glitch Ditto. That knows Dunsparces' moveset. But yeah. Normally I take nicknaming seriously, but then sometimes my inner teenager awakens at two in the morning.

                                        I also have a Butterfree named Butterman and a Masquerain named Surferdude.
