Do you ever call a Pokemon a silly/stupid name when you're talking about it?
I don't mean, do you nickname them strangely. I mean, if you're talking about Pokemom to someone in person do you sometimes call a Pokemon by a silly name that you've just made up?

I do, sometimes...

Caterpie = Cater-pie
Rattata = Ratatatat
Clefairy = Fairwy Fairwy
Golduck = Gold-duck
Dewgong = Deeew-gong-gong
Haunter = Hunter Hunter (in a weird voice)
Kingler = Cookie Cookie
Lickitung = Licking!
Chansey = Chunsey Chunsey
Chikorita = Chikor
Totodile = To-to-dile (i say it just like Ash's does in the anime)
Xatu = Zatu Zat Zat Zat
Wobbuffet = Wah! Buff-et (just like in the anime XD)
Scizor = See-zor!
Teddiursa = Teddi Teddi-ursa!
Piloswine = Pile of Swine (XD)
Zigzagoon = Zigzagging-oon
Pelipper = Pelper
Gardevoir = Gar Devour (O_o)
Exploud = Exploudsion
Cacnea = Cac Neaaah! (anime...)
Wynaut = Why? Wynaut

Does anyone else do this? Or am I just strange? O_o

I do this often. I had made up inappropiate nicknames for the 3rd gen Pokemon (because I hadn't gotten Ruby or Sapphire until a year or more after their release, and so I hated the 3rd gen Pokemon until then). Otherwise, I have a few I say when encountering them in DP:

Machoke = Machokin' his chicken! (Yes, because of the sprite comic Pokemon X)
Meditite = Meditight like Spandex
Tentacool = Tenta kewl

That's basically all I can think of now.

I used to call Rattata Ratatata, but just because my imagination overtook reading when I was young.

But otherwise, no names I can remember except that I used to call female Machokes as Ma'amchokes o_0.

As perverted, and overused as it is, I name my Metapod "Penis" because of Metapod's favorite move. :3
Once upon a time, there was a man who was convinced that he possessed a Great Idea. Indeed, as the man thought upon the Great Idea more and more, he realized that it was not just a great idea, but the most wonderful idea ever. The Great Idea would unravel the mysteries of the universe, supersede the authority of the corrupt and error-ridden Establishment, confer nigh-magical powers upon its wielders, feed the hungry, heal the sick, make the whole world a better place, etc. etc. etc.

The man was Francis Bacon, his Great Idea was the scientific method, and he was the only crackpot in all history to claim that level of benefit to humanity and turn out to be completely right.

I have an English friend and his way of saying Lanturn was 'Anturn. I found it funny and nicknamed my Lanturn after his way of speaking.

Apart from that, no.
'It's been a prevalent notion. Fallen sparks. Fragments of vessels broken at the Creation. And someday, somehow, before the end, a gathering back to home. A messenger from the Kingdom, arriving at the last moment. But I tell you there is no such message, no such home -- only the millions of last moments . . . nothing more. Our history is an aggregate of last moments.'


I'm back, yet again!

I've always named my Bulbasaur's Bulba... Rattata is something everybody in my school pronounces wrong. Even I do. I always say Rattatat by mistake. Same with everybody else. Why such a confusing name?!?! WHY!?!?!
And I've recently started naming all Onix's I catch, Rocky. Some other habbit. And Geodudes annoy me so much. I give them names I wouldn't say on this forum =D *lmao*

Oh and the Metapod using harden. Lmao xD
Can't be bothered to catch 'em all!!

I think so... I mean, in-game I give my Pokemon decent or nice nicknames, but when I'm saying the names aloud, I occasionally like to imitate the anime sounds. My faves include Mudkip, Totodile, Squirtle, Wobbufet, Xatu, Blastoise, Scizor, and Blaziken! :)

Also, I like imitating a certain Granbull from Pokemon: The Movie 3. I think that when the remixed theme song ends, all the other Pokemon begin eating, while a odd Granbull just sits there and goes: "RAWR! RAWR!" randomly, staring into space. It is so funny 'cause the Granbull seems so out of place in that scene blurting sounds out like that! :laugh::laugh: Imagine if you "RAWR"-ed randomly in public! (btw, I haven't and don't plan on ever roaring randomly like that in public! It's fun to do when no one's around, though! :D)

To the whole metapod joke:
There is this video on youtube with a metapod who used all these moves and they ahere harden withdraw and another one. Best thing it was on blue where withdraw looks like a condom. Best vid ever.
Anyway to distinguish my pokemon i have them with a nice little ending,
And so on so forth.

Aw man, you guys have forever changed my view of Metapod. xDDD

But, I don't really nickname Pokemon or give them weird names, because....I can't think of any good names!!
