Whenever I get to nickname myself and others in the games, I tend to use Latin names. So I did again this time, haha.

Me: Decimus, Latin for "The Tenth"
Rival: Furia, Latin for "Fury"

Serperior: Agre, Latin for "the fields"
Unfezant: Avis, Latin for "a bird"
Lucario: Valeo, Latin for "I am strong"
Gigalith: Petrae, Latin for "the rocks"
Raichu: Fulgur, Latin for "lightning"
Bronzong: Temporis, Latin for "of the time"

I named myself Luke because it kinda derives from the word 'Lunar'. My brother named himself Sunny which derives from the sun. We're playing together so we thought it would be cool to have similar name themes.

We kept the rival as Hugh because my brother and I coincidentally named our first model rocket Hugh XD

Named girl main character after myself (Laura)
Kept Hugh's default name
Called my Oshawott Revolver (silly 4chan thing involving naming the starters after MGS characters that started around B&W's time - Revolver Oshawott, Solid Snivy and Tepig Boss)
Called my Sewaddle Osh Kosh after the children's clothing company since the Pokedex description says fashion companies use them as mascots because of their cute leaf-clothes
Called my Lillipup Pooky after a terrier puppy I had when I was 5
Called my Darmanitan Darmy because I am unimaginative
Cally my Scraggy Duck King cuz he reminded me of that Fatal Fury character
Called my Haxorus Tuskany cuz it has tusks and it's a girl and Tusk sounds too manly. Plus it's a pun on Tuscany

Other random names from my game:
Trilby (Purrloin, named after the cat burglar from Yahtzee Croshaw's adventure game series) Casanosa (Swoobat, it's like Casanova with a nose), Bubblebutt (Azurill), Piderp and Psyderp (Pidove and Psyduck), Growlie (Growlithe), ARGH (Magby, took like 10 balls to catch. That's a lot of money, dang it!), Riley (Riolu), Dyna (female) and Mite (male) (Drilburs, also Super Mario RPG references), Killerquen (Vespiquen, punny name based on the Queen song "Killer Queen"), Hippy, Bancho and Guido (Panpour, Pansage and Pansear), Bambi (Deerling), Boobs (Castform), Colonel (Klink, I like Hogan's Heroes), Whoopi (Golbat), Goodyear (Drifblim), CANNONS (Remoraid, some old Nuzlocker reference)
...And then after Undella I kind of got burnt out on naming.

I named myself Brick(I recently restarted my silver where I named the guy Brick as well), and my opponent is Dork. Yes very mature I know :p

I use a mix of nicknames and English Pokémon names as I bought the German versions and I still have to get used to the German names which are a bit terrible at some points. (as usual.)
Has the doubnle effect of playing it like not having played unova before since I don't know the German names of the Pokés before :haha: can only guess them ;9

Me: Gigi (one of my nicknames)
Rival: Alex (after my best friend)

That actually turned out pretty cool because in real life, my friend Alex's sister is named Bianca, so at the beginning of the game it was Gigi and Alex going to find Bianca :P

I named my Character 'Beavis' I wanted Cornholio but it wouldn't fit (I like Beavis and Butthead), I was going to call my rival 'Butthead' but that wouldn't fit so I used his default name 'Hugh'
11th Doctor: He's the one that broke the promise, he's my secret

John Hurt:What I did, I did without choice

11th Doctor: I know

John Hurt: in the name of peace and sanity

11th Doctor: But not in the name of the Doctor

75% of Pokemon gamers use cheats and specially made codes to make their pokemon battle-worthy. If you are one of the 25% percent that level their Pokemon up legally, put this in your signature.

I named my character Yui, after a character from a story I was writing a while back. I named my rival Keiichi, who is Yui's older brother's rival. My female Snivy got named Shizu (completely random) just before our battle with the Elite Four. My Eevee was named Undine after I evolved her into Vaporeon. My female Banette was named Rea and my female Flygon was named Fey. I didn't nickname anyone else until post-game.

Necromancers can control zombies, skeletons, and ghasts; Ryana specializes in zombies, but has a secondary handle on skeletons. People see Necromancers as horrible abominations. Ryana is nothing of the sort. It would take less than a day for anyone to realize that."

Hey guys. on my first save of black 2 i named my guy Tommy. but this was too obvious so i am starting challenge mode now my guy is called Erghiez and i have named my rival Ryudo. i chose tepig this time as opposed to mijimaru.

i have not given him a nickname he doesnt need one yet.

i have named myself Ergheiz because on some mmorpg's i have played i am known by this name :D

on this run of my game i will try to have a different team set up like i usually do [see sig] but putting lucario in my team is way too tempting hahah he beat most of the game for me on my normal mode run xxx but i have an ADAMANT tepig now im so lucky he's got a decent nature.

i might put a bug pokemon in my team but not sure which one yet. ideally i want scizor adamant/technician hahaha.

o well im off to actually play my challenge mode. bianca just taught me how to catch pokemon ......[nintendo need to make this optional]

[off topic can a mod change my username to Ergheiz]

I named my character Light, and named my rival Kira. I named all of my pokemon after my favorite Naruto characters. For example I named my Oshawott, Zabuza. Simply I chose these names because I love Death Note and Naruto, though I love almost all anime.
Someday... Pokemon will be a reality to me.
