Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

    I nickname a lot, so I won't go into too much detail.
    All I want to say is that I think I picked the perfect nickname for my Snivy:

      I dont name my pokemon, besides that one time I named my Charmander Blaze in Red/Blue. To me, I can never think of any good nicknames, so I just stick with their original names .

        D'awww, Blaze.

        I take it as a challenge to see how much I can nickname, so I pretty much nickname everyone. I cringe when I get a Pokemon that isn't nicknamed from a trade, since that locks me out of the fun in nicknaming.

        Some of my notable ones...

        Sir Triton for my Serperior, since his smug attitude is rather regal, and I got the last name off Luke Triton from Layton.

        Amenhotep for my Cohagrigus, named after the actual pharaoh of Egypt. I don't know which one, though.

        Omnhkhbomf for my Crobat. It's kind of like an onomatopoeia.

        Whoopee for Stunfisk. It sounded like a whoopee cushion...

        BurgerKing for Shieldon. Yeah, I don't know too.

        Monkey Bed for Scyther. ...

        Bill's Poop for Eevee...

        All right, I'm kind of done here. xD

          Charger = Zebstrika and that's probably my most creative nickname lol. Also Serperior = Smuglord, Beartic = Chillydude, Excadrill = KingArthur, Scrafty = Gangstaboy, Swanna = DonaldDuck. Also some other stuff but this is my in-game team.

            Most of the pokemon I named simply use the Japanese names because many of them are better than the English names IMO. Some are based off of what many fans theorized as the names before names actually got released. Some are just things I came up with.

                      Snivy/Servine/Serperior: Seed (The name I use on most forums and websites and RPGs..And plus, it fits with him XD.)

                      I used to not nickname my Pokemon, but with all the terrible names had to >_<. Have a few more in the PC, but I usually just use the same Pokemon over the course of the whole game, and into the endgame.

                            Koetetsu as I believe there was some myth on him as a blacksmith that makes Japanese swords, so the name fits

                            Pluto, because it's a mole... lives underground... like the roman god Pluto... I ran out of good nicknames, m'kay...

                            Shadow, if you don't get this, you have a few problems

                            Nike, as Victini is the victory pokemon, and Nike is the victory spirit

                            Mercury, as it flies. A lot. :/

                            Mars, as It's a complete sweeper.
                            Blame your fate.

                              The only Pokemon I have currently nicknamed is my roggenrolla, named Dangoro, not only because it was his jp name, but it sounds very fitting for his current gigalith form.

                                I named all mine after Shakespearian characters.

                                Samurott = Othello
                                Aerodactyl = Don John
                                etc etc

                                    Well my nicknaming skills suck so I nickname my pokemons not to far from their original names. Here are some examples of my pokemons from FireRed version:

                                    Charizard - Chary
                                    Jigglypuff - Jiggle
                                    Pikachu - Kachi
                                    Fearow - Arrow

                                    I can't remember the others but it goes like that.

                                      I always give my Pokemons real names like Thomas or Gabriella. The name starts with the first letter of the last form's name.
                                      Sweet success or so they say is never quite you'd imagine.
