    Tell us what you named your pokemon in Black/White along with your reasoning for it.


    Crustle - Debbie

    Crustle reminds me of my friend debbie who sits in her House all day long c:

    So I thought, Why not?

    Tauros - Artemis

    Named after Greek Goddess of the hunt and wilderness.

      My most amusing nicknames in White are probably Eminem the Emboar and Budgie the Tranquill. Purely because they make no sense on the Pokemon, whereas Snoop Dogg the Lillipup -totally- makes sense.

      I can't quite remember what I named my other boxed Pokemon, though :(

        They may not match the pokemon but they are quite catchy! Is it bad that I also have a stoutland named Snoop D xD

              Serperior - F - Rosette - I couldn't think of anything else?
              Scolipede - M - Anbu - I don't really know why I named him Anbu
              Fraxure - F - Rein - Uhh...

              Thundurus - Thor - Thunder Legendary on a cloud looking badass... Thor just sounded... appropriate, plus... I love Norse Mythology.

              Don't think I named any others.

                  I named:

                  My Reshiram Byakuran(KHR reference)

                  My Samurott Bluebell(another KHR reference)

                  And my Volcanora(the one I evolved from Larvesta) Zakuro(yet another KHR reference).

                  I plan to get a Rotom and name it Ghost(A KHR reference)

                  and some other pokemon and name them other KHR names.

                      The all caps versions of the names. Like LILLIPUP to match the old names which were also all caps.

                        Tripjaw/archeops - because its jaws reminded me of beartraps and one of my best friends' names is Trip. <:
                        Kabutan/(karrablast/escavalier) - kaburumo (karrablast's japanese name)+ titan.
                        Sharps/druddigon - IT'S LIKE HUGGING A SERIES OF VERY SHARP MOUNTAIN BABIES
                        Mitos/reuniclus - comes from mitosis, when cells split into two.
                        Caeru/golurk - Latin for blue.
                        Dharma/darumaka - I think I saw this name on TV when I caught her. Plus it sounds like daruma.

                              I tend to nickname every single Pokemon I catch, no matter how forgettable it may be. I'll just list my team's nicknames...

                              • Hiro the Servine: Snivy looks like Excalibur from the manga/anime Soul Eater and one of the few people able to wield Excalibur was Hiro.
                              • Ceino the Simipour: Ceino as in See No Evil, which is what I believe Panpour and Simipour are based upon.
                              • Rayban the Krokorok: The black membrane over Krokorok and his evolution's eyes look like sunglasses and Ray-Ban is a designer brand of sunglasses.
                              • Mashima the Darumaka: Mashima refers to the Mashima family from the Tekken series. They are all viciously strong and have giant eyebrows like Darumaka and Darmanitan.
                              • Jimihat the Solosis: Jimihat as in Jimmy Hat since the entire Solosis line reminds me of a growing embryo...and you stop the creation of such a thing with a jimmy hat XD

                                trying to get a better natured Yamask so I can get a Cohagrigus/Cofacabana named:

                                Ed Undying (Ed the Undying don't fit *sad*)

                                That would be a reference to kingdomofloathing for the curious.

                                  My team are as follows:

                                  Tempo the Serperior - I know, the line has nothing to do with timing or Own Tempo or anything, but I wanted something that sounded better than Smugleaf, and, well...

                                  Marik the Liepard - Neko Neko Marik! I'm such an Abridged Series fan >w< (and I luuurve Neko Neko Marik)

                                  Pendant the Simipour - I'm pretty spontaneous when I name Pokémon. I was all like "Panpour? Well, Pendant sounds a bit like Panpour. Perfect!"

                                  Fawke the Unfezant - named for an OC of mine who was a boy with wings. If the Pidove had turned out to be a girl, she would have been Etha, Fawke's counterpart in the story. :B

                                  Comet the Zebstrika - named after a reindeer. This was after I'd seen a Sawsbuck, too. Somehow, I managed to associate Blitzle with Blitzen, and then to the other reindeer, and then Comet.

                                  Tardigrade the Reuniclus - because tardigrades are squishy-adorable and Solosis are squishy-adorable, and Reunclus has an air of tardigrade in its design. I really love tardigrades. :P

                                    I don't use nicknames, I'm picky when it comes to stuff like that and it would take me absolutely ages to come up with one I was happy with.

                                    Liking some of the nicknames people have used though, very creative :)

                                        I nicknamed my starter Pokemon, Oshawott his name is Aqua. My Pansear's name is Pyro. I also caught a Lilipup and a Purrloin and named them Bernie after my dog and Buster after my cat.

                                          Seperior/Envy: That Leviathan/serpent thing Envy turned into at the end of the first FMA anime

                                          Zoroark/Todd: Todd from Fox & the Hound

                                          Krookodile/Vector: Vector the crocodile from the Sonic the Hedgehog series

                                          Archeops/Tsubasa: Couldn't think of anything else & I know that Tsubasa had something to do with wings

                                          Sawsbuck/Blitzen: I think you can figure this one out x3

                                          Beartic/Vega: The brightest star in the Lyra constellation, I believe. Also, I was thinking of Zoids at the time

                                          Panpour/Cress: After the gym leader, lol

                                          Cohagrigus/Marik: Yu-Gi-Oh!

                                          Deino/Nikodemus: Seems like a fitting name. I think it sounds a bit ominous since it's a rather brutal Pokemon according to the Pokedex. The Secret of NIMH, lol

                                          Victini/Klaus: Supposedly mean victory & since Victini is the victory Pokemon...

                                          Mienfoo/Ling: FMA Brotherhood/manga. From some reason it's stance reminds me of Ling.

                                          Drilbur/Bakuryu: Bakuryu from Bloody Roar, the dude that turns into a mole

                                          Lillipup/Copper: Counter part for my Zoroark xD

                                          That's all I can think of at the top of my head at the moment.
