      Okay, so the nicknames I use are usually good to some extent, but sometimes they took a turn for the worst....

      THE GOOD
      Appolo-Espeon (My Personal Favorite)
      Useless-Delcatty (The Most Clever)

      THE BAD
      Lardbutt-Snorlax (cuz fat jokes are signs of triple A comedy....NO.)
      Celery-Renuclius (get it...cells...yeah this one is absolutely awful)
      WhatIsThis-Eelektross (This was my reaction after evolving my Eelektrik...the I rushed to the Name Rater to name it the worst nickname I have ever come up with

          My best would be naming my Conkledurr Swanson, after the manly man Ron Swanson of Parks and Rec.

          As for worst, I guess Dynamo the Arcanine.

          Well, I remember naming my Swellow "Hybird" as a six-year old. But that was then. Before I knew about Base Stats.

          Recently, it's been pretty much this:

          Ayato the Metagross
          Rembrandt the Gallade
          Kenage the Salamence
          Ononoko the Haxorus
          Rekka the Chandelure
          Odaya the Tyranitar
          Kanoshi the Empoleon

          I'm Japanese, so I gave you the Romaji.

          I name my Gallades "Rembrandt" because it just seems so fitting.

                    I once named everything I catch related to fictional characters in my White playthrough, from another series or from my OCs. It's not just random either, since I consider the Pokemon and the character I'm referencing. Some of my favourites are:

                    Springday the Musharna (Named after Suzumiya Haruhi, since 'haru' = spring, and Munna has flowers on its body. I was going to blatantly name Munna Haruhi, but mine was a guy, so I had to compromise. It turned out pretty nice for a name.)

                    Faraday the Zebstrika (It was Faraway at first, since zebra = horse = run long distances. However, I thought it didn't feel like a name after a while, so I slightly changed it. The character I was referencing before the change is May/Haruka from Pokemon, but it ended up being Kay Faraday from Ace Attorney Investigations. So, double reference!)

                    Simon the Excadrill (Ha ha, do I even need to explain just who the hell this guy is referencing? This name is simple and might be boring to some, but I sure do love me some TTGL references.)

                    Honorable mentions:
                    Adam the Samurott (Revolver Ocelot from M-M-M-Metal Gear, since I didn't want to be boring and just use Ocelot)
                    Lynne the Lilligant (Lynne from Ghost Trick, due to the gender and the flower on her head)
                    Hinawa/Mothman the Volcarona (Hinawa from MOTHER3, Mothman from Devil Survivor/SMT; the name depends whether Volcarona is a girl or a guy)

                    I think before I started seriously naming my Pokemon, I had some pretty stupid names, what with age and all. The worst of my nicknames has to be Fly the Starly. Thank god I lost my Pearl, but ugh...

                      I quite like giving mine either really posh sounding names or completely normal names.
                      Growlithe - Tyrian
                      Bulbasaur - Pete (She's actually a girl, I named her without actually looking at her gender :/)
                      Machop - Tyrell
                      Rattata - Giles
                      Pikachu - Alonso
                      Pidgey - Melvin

                      That's a few of them. I have quite a few more but I won't go through all of them.

                        Hi there Omegalpha234- welcome to PC! Unfortunately, it's against the rules to bump threads over a month old, and this one hasn't been posted in for two years. If you're looking to talk about your Pokemon's nicknames, try this thread over in Pokemon Gaming Central. Thanks!
