    I usually give my Pokemon weird nicknames such as if I were to catch a Weedle for example, I will end up naming it weedie and for Pokemon that resembles something bad or a drug I would name them after a drug like Oddish the plants on its head looks like weed and Paras would be shroomz lol

        I’ve posted here before, but I’ve actually just opened my Pokemon White game (which is being used at the moment) there to look at the host of nicknames so far. Just as a background, my boyfriend usually nicknames my pokemon and I his. Some of his nicknames are absolutely ridiculous, as can be seen below:

        Throh – Fat Jackie

        Venipede – Flick (female sign)

        Pansear – Ham

        Pansage – Evilmonkey

        Watchog – Patsy

        Mincinno – Minnie

        Sewaddle – Cabbage

        Drilbur – Pingu

        Tepig - Spiderpig

        Pidove - Lovey-Dovey

        And Vanillite – Corne-toe. As an homage of sorts to Misfits’ Rudy’s favourite Ice Cream, the Cornetto (Which he pronounces as Corne-toe)...

        In a previous White playthrough I also had a Larvesta named Sombrero because it reminded me of one...

          I got out my old Fire Red the other day, and it turns out I was one of those guys that named a Metapod "D*ck". My, was I immature.

          But that was when I was around 11-12. The worst nicknames were from when I was 6 and playing Sapphire.

          WATER MAN the Swampert was probably the most terrible.

          And slightly more recently was my Walrein from a few years ago, named Penguin.

            Generally when nicknaming I use the first word that pops into my head. Some prime examples are
            Groudon in Ruby I once named "Pinkie"
            Fletchling named "Ribs"
            Chespin named "Hobo"
            And my personal favorite on X right now a Zigzagoon named "Chris Cross".

                  When I was younger, I gave my Pokemon the generic God names. Zeus, Athena, etc., and I actually had a Pikachu named Sparky.

                    Besides my wonder trade trolling nicknames like Batman, moldy salad, wrench face, and kitchens...

                    I really don't nickname my pokemon unless I'm trading them or I'm just bored out of my mind. I'm really getting into it with wonder trade though!

                      Oh boy, I would love to tell you the stupid nicknames I gave my Pokémon... Unfortunately most of those are really vulgar and offensive.
                      I don't think I can/should post these here.

                      I can tell you about this though: Since Gastly is a gas Pokémon I once called him "Sven's Fart" (Sven being a buddy of mine).

                          I was giving all my rare/special Pokémon their Japanese names on my Diamond save years ago. My main team and all the legendaries already had them, and I was going through my boxes for some rare Pokémon. I read somewhere that Carnivine is super rare to get so I wanted to rename that one, too, however I didn't know its name. I gave it the stand-in name "(JpName?)" while I would look it up, but I never did. Seeing the name now always reminds me of that. ._.

                          (All the names have been returned to the regular English ones)

                            I named my Rotom-Mow "GrASSmunch"... Geddit... 'Cause it's a lawnmower... And yes, I did capitilize the "ass" so anyone who saw it got the joke.

                            all my pokemon names are embarrassing bc i put no more than half a second of thought into each one and pretty much just pick the first combination of letters that appears in my head

                            "Hello... Lovely weather, isn't it?"
