I always start a new game by making a pledge to nickname all my Pokemon, but then I stuff up because I automatically press B when it asks me if I want to nickname my Pokemon and everything goes out the window. -.- I called my Tepig "PigGod =)" and I named my next two Pokemon something else that I can't remember right now, then after that I just couldn't be bothered. If there was an option to rename your Pokemon on the spot instead of going all the way to the Name Rater, then I'd be more willing to nickname my Pokemon, but there isn't, so I'm keeping my Pokemon with their original names.

I've only ever nicknamed my Pokémon with their name in lower case, but theres no need for that anymore, the only ones I have nicknamed are the ones I prefer the Japanese name, like my Snivy called Tsutarja

I rarely or never nickname Pokemon, but I only do when I come up with a really good nickname or when I see Pokemon that remind me of persons and/or characters from books/mangas/games/animes etc. ! For example, EraldCoil (or E.Coil) for Serperior (I chose this one only because Serperior was the first Pokemon I saw that could attack with Coil!) or Mello for a male Ninetales (dunno something about it reminds me of him) or L for Zoroark (A Pokemon that never shows its real face! Can´t find anything that´d suit better than the name of the world´s greatest detective!) !
Please feed my Pokes:

I made it my mission to nickname everything I catch in the wild in Black.

There was only one escapee, an Elgyem, and I can't be bothered to go back and fix it. Maybe if I do, it'll be "Nameless".

My main team is as follows:

Marco the Samurott- As in Marco Polo.

Canes the Seismitoad- If you live in Australia, 'nuff said.

Eario the Gigalith- My reaction to finding out Roggenrola don't have a massive eye, but an EAR, combined with a bit of BitF magic.

Boney the Stoutland- Currently in retirement from battling, but his name is a Mother 3 reference.

Cinch the Cinccino- Obvious name is obvious.

Nukesy the Victini- Think about Victini for a moment. Churchill's V sign. The power to win any battle. Forbidden use. It can generate energy which it shares with others.

Victini is a Nuclear bomb.

And my favourite name for just novelty is MorseHorse the Blitzle.
Read it's pokedex entry.

TLDR I like nicknames.
Currently doing nothing.

I name my in the order I catch/hatch/recieve them. An example of which is my tepig/whatever the rest of it's evolutions are called has been nicknamed 001. The only exception to this rule is Victini, who has been nicknamed 000. I don't care about nicknames, because they're just tools of war to me to use as I roleplay as a ten year old god of Pokemon training

My friend says I play Pokemon as if I was running the holocaust.
Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

I use kind of a rock music motif, but I don't always stick to it that well. Examples from my current lineup:

Tenacious the Emboar: From Tenacious D, since only "TenaciousD" would fit, and I didn't want the name to look cramped. His nature and characteristic of "Bold, likes to fight" made me think of him as being tenacious.
Hall the Throh: If I ever catch a Sawk, I plan on naming it "Oates".
Dolby the Reuniclus: Named after Thomas Dolby, the guy that did "Blinded Me With Science". Again, not necessarily rock.
Dio the Archeops: Both are awesome but extinct.
Sabbath the Zekrom: Black Sabbath, of course!
Shook Me the Whiscash: From the AC/DC song "Shook Me All Night Long," since Whiscash is known for causing earthquakes.

I plan on doing an anime theme for Black Version, including Excalibur the Snivy...

After my zwielous evolved into hydreigon, I named him "Dennis." Ghetsis battle theme ftw xD

I actually rarely nickname any pokemon that I own, but sometimes it's just funny (Serperior => Smugleaf, Hydreigon => Dennis)

I named Metagross "Nightmare" cause it's scary strong
I named Mamoswine "Mastidon" obvious I'd say
I named Jelicent "Whirler" I don't know it just kind of seemed right
I couldn't remame Rotom cause it's the in-game trade one
and I didn't want to rename Reshiram or Kyrum cause their names are epic as is
oh my god! my account still exists in this kiddie pool? guess what! these mods you are all bowing down to? they're all kids themselves!

I nickname all of my Pokémon, tbh. Though a good majority of the time they aren't very good names... :( My two favorites are Prometheus the Emboar and Excalibur the Excadrill. Emboar was named after Prometheus, the Greek Titan who stole fire from the gods and gave it to mankind. Excadrill was actually more because Excadrill + Drillbur made me think of Excalibur, and it's the name of a badass sword which is even better. :D

And no, my Prometheus doesn't get his liver eaten out by Braviary. :>

I nicknamed my Tepig Otto because...well I don't know really why. It just seemed to fit him.
My Tirtouga is named Riptide (not creative I know).

My Sawsbuck is named Antlass, which is a combination of antler and lass (Yes shes a girl).

My Archen is nicknamed Dinonichus which is an attempted spelling by memory of Deinonychus, which is a bigger version of a Velociraptor.

My Zebstrika is nicknamed Stampede because he looks like he'd run you over.

My LArvesta is nicknamed Mothra, cause its evolved form kind of looks like one to me.

And my Liepard is nicknamed Matilda because of a friends cat.

I didnt always nickname my Pokemon but I've been getting into it more and more.

I don't know why but I'm always nicknaming Pokemon
Back in the day it was after anime characters
Then I tried using fantasy name generators (Laure is Tomika in elvish)

But now that I'm playing 5 Pokemon games at once D:
I name them after whatever is going on during my Law and Order marathons or what comes to my head

all I got in my party so far is Dewott and Simisear

Dewott is Gale because there was a character named Gale on the SVU episode I was watching

Simisear is Inferno cause.... let's be honest... Infernape is the better monkey

Sometimes I'll nickname Pokémon random things just because, and not be real serious about it unless it was a Pokémon I would plan on training or using for Wi-Fi battles. Whatever it may be I need a serious/cool nickname for, really.

I was out catching Ditto at the Giant Chasm for a Timid nature, and I had kept getting these neutral nature ones. So I raged and named one "Stupid". ;x I ended up getting one with the nature I needed right after that Ditto though. n__n

I wonder if it were random that my final Solosis hatched as egg nr. 666

I'll start with my current party:

Serperior - Lilith Haxorus - Karyn Samurott - Joshawott(because I have a friend named Josh that I cleverly put -awott (J)Oshawott)) xD
can't nickname my Volcarona or Mienshao because they're traded :c
but once I breed some kids for them after they're 100'd Volcarona - Vessa
and Mienshao - Amethys
and Emolga - Beiru

Now for some noteworthy ones xD
Named Reshiram - Aphelion and I am going to name Zekrom - Perihelion
meaning: Furthest place from the sun and Closest place from the sun, respectively
I guess I'll name Kyurem - Apsis in that sense :PP

Altaria - Aozora (japanese for Blue Sky) Zoroark - Neit Cinccino - Tesla
Tornadus - Aeo Victini - Syn Cobalion - Leiva Virizion - Pai (I forgot why) xD
and Dream World Nidoran - Bane! :DD

those are the ones I put a little thought into :PP

Sanurai-Samurott, for obvious reasons.
Yorkie-Stoutland, because when I first caught it as a Lillipup, that was the first thought that popped into my head
Scorcher-Simisear, because I felt like using some sort of fire-related name and keeping the "s" thing going with its name
Lupin-Mightyena, because it's a wolf (duh) and Lupin is the best character in Harry Potter.
Foxy-Vulpix...once again obvious
(best nickname ever right here) Hitler GoT (short for God of Thunder; the only way it would let me nickname him Hitler was if I added GoT to the end... oddly enough)-Thundurus, from an insane inside joke about German/Norwegian gods of thunder and other such nonsense. You really had to be there to get it.
McCloud-other Vulpix, after (who else) Fox McCloud of Star Fox fame.
Trash-Garbodor, because that's what I think of it as.
Those are the nicknames I can think of right now, although I'm sure I have more that I've forgotten about.
My team that beat White:

Zekrom, Victini, Vanillish, Eagle, Samurai, and Excadrill
Unfortunately, for the time being, I cannot trade. My DS recently quit on me and I don't have the money to repair/replace it currently
I don't calculate stat values, I don't breed my way to perfection, and I don't care about natures. I catch my Pokemon the way they are, and treat them like individuals instead of brainless drones. If you use this philosophy, copy & paste this into your signature (however, I do build competitive movesets and do minimal EV training, just not ignore the Pokemon based on stats ).

I didn't nickname any of mine, so that I could learn their names easier. I do that with most new generations, except I did nickname my starter Johan. That one aside, all of the others have their usual names. On my second run through, I might nickname 'em.
