I named myself Brianna, of course, but...
Rival-Devin. I named him after that because Devin is the name of one of my best friends.

Serperior-Cadel, cuz it's a cute name for a cute pokemon.
Lucario-Raok. It's just a random name I came up with.
Arcanine-Dash. It's the first name that came into mind, so Dash she is.
Swanna-Regina, after one of my favorite artists, Regina Spektor
Zoroark is just Zoroark... It's N's, so I can't name it. But he's lovely anyways. <3
Cinccino-Vato, after one of my bestest buddies on here, who is also coincidentally Vato.

If you play the pokemon trading card game, or if you're just a collector, check out, and be sure to put my name, demonshade, in the referral box if you decide to make an account.

Name: Norah - because.
Rival: Hugh, because I like default rival names when they aren't colours.

Aron: Interdum
Riolu: Aurum
Magnemite: Wheatley.
All because I plan on switching them for my properly trained team after the 8th badge.

Name - Kobe (Not after the basketball player, but after the city in japan: Kobe, Japan...Plus I thought that name fit his design, I dunno)

Rival - Meca (Actually, I named him after a character from Def Jam: Fight for NY! Meca's opening quote use to make me 'LOL' And how the rival wants to beat Team Plasma down so bad made me think it would fit...again, I dunno, man)

Pokemon - They don't have nicknames.

Even though I don't have the games yet, I can still post what I'll name myself, my rival and my Pokemon.

Myself: Nichole (my real name!)

Rival: Hugh (I often use default names for rivals)

Pokemon: I don't give them nicknames.

I named my character in Black 2 Jeremy as always, and I'll be naming my character in White 2 Mei, since I'll be playing that through with the female character and I hate the name Rosa. I called my rival Tai, not really sure why. Probably would've suited my character better, since he is reminiscent of Tai from Digimon, but still.

I don't nickname my Pokémon.
Still young but no longer impressionable.

I chose Jub for my name simply because I named my character my real name in Pokemon Black, and since I was intending to use the memory link with it I decided I'd be better off naming myself something different. Jub is just a shortening of Superjub, a name I used on a lot of forums/websites. As for my rival, I named him James since I always used to play Pokemon with my brother and I always name my rivals after him.

Just noticed that you asked what we named our Pokemon. xD Well, I only really nickname the Pokemon in my main team, and so far I have called my Samurott Otto, my Magneton Magneto, my Crobat Vladimir and my Lucario Rio. /sucksatgivingpokemongoodnicknamesbutdoesitanyway. xD

I usually play Male in the first games (because I'm male) and then I play as a female in the third version. (It's becoming tradition at this point)

I called my character Velma, partially as a tribute to Velma from Scooby Doo but I also like the name. I called my rival Thomas.....probably because I was watching Regular Show and they added a new character called Thomas and I liked the name.

I don't nickname my pokemon, it just bothers me too much.

I've got White 2, and I named my character Wyatt, because my character in White 1 is named Blake. ...You get it? =P

I kept my rival's name Hugh, because I really liked the little reference behind the name. I always was a fan of meaningful names.

And finally, I don't nickname my Pokemon because I think their original names are already great anyway.

I always name my characters after myself. I feel it is more immersive that way.
I'll always name my rivals (if given the option to) after what I think they "look" like. While he does look like a Hugh, I also find he looks a lot like a Ralph. Thus his name.
I always give my Pokemon various nicknames, usually names on a whim.

I named myself Dominic, because that's what I always name myself.
I named my rival Niklaus, because I wanted Nick to be in there somewhere, and I wanted it to be the full amount of characters names can be.
I didn't name my Pokémon anything.

Named myself 60, named my rival 70. I'm like at the point where I'm so out of names that I'm using numbers. At least at didn't name myself as a single letter *cough*N*cough*. :P

Oh and I don't nickname my Pokemon.
