Player: MTS
Rival: Sam

I named myself MTS, as a shortened version of MrTripStack, which is my typical gaming name. I named the rival Sam after my cousin that I've been playing through the game with (his rival is named MTS).

I also have two HM slaves, Tangrowth and Jellicent, named "HM Slave 1" and "HM Slave 2" respectively. These two Pokémon can learn all the HMs (and Flash) besides Fly, which is always in my team anyway.

The last Pokémon that I nicknamed is a Munna that I caught through Dream Radar, named "Daydreamer" because I always use her to do the Dream World stuff.

I don't typically nickname Pokémon, besides my various "tool Pokémon", which includes any Pokémon that serve a certain purpose. I might catch a Ditto and nickname him "Sex Blob", or something.

Wow, there's a thread like this :o

Anyways, here's what I chose for names~

Player: Leia
Rival: Spike

I chose Leia because that's the closest female name to my name (I'm a guy x3)
I named the rival spike because of the hair, so spiky xD.

Team Names
Servine: Sir Perior (puns ftw)
Frillish: Fur Elise (sounds like Frillish xD)
Braviary: Brahms (just came to my mind)
Lucario: Anubis (the Egyption Dog headed God)
Magnemite: Lodestone (cause lodestones are magnets <3)
Growlithe: Arcadios (Derived the first four letters from Arcanine, Dios means god)

A little something I made~

Name - Clarice. Why? Because I was watching the movie Hannibal at the time and I wasn't gonna be naming her Hilda anytime soon.

Rival Name - Paul. Why? Because it sounded more fitting than Hugh imho and again because I was watching Hannibal at the time. I know I'm lazy but what else is new honestly lol.

Team -

Emboar - My first ever female starter named Rynya because I thought it would be cute for a Tepig at the time.

Ampharos - Named this one Zionga because that's the name for a lightning spell in Shin Megami Tensei and I was too lazy to think of anything original.

Unfezant - Called this teammate DePazzi because again I thought it would be fitting and yet again I was too lazy to think of anything original.

Genesect - Couldn't give a nickname to this one sadly but regardless it was still a wrecking ball.

Walrein - Named this one Yusuf, short for Yusuf Amir from GTA - The Ballad Of Gay Tony. Why, because I loved Yusuf Amir and I love Walrein so I might as well but 2 and 2 together.

Krookodile - By the end of the day his new name was Brucie, short for Brucie Kibbutz from GTA 4, pretty much the same reason I had when naming Walrein Yusuf.

Well there ya go. This was on Black 2 btw.
"Well what else is there to talk about, apart from the weather, the assassination attempt of the day being sponsored by El Dente's, and of course the latest political sex scandal involving foreign tranny midgets and elderly men in a 3000 dollar hot tub in a Beverly Hills suite."

I named myself: Slick. This has been my name in the games for 2 generations. I always like playing as the boy.
My rival: Lucas. What I have named my rival in the past as well but not always.

My babies:
Emboar: Spunky. He most definitely is!

Froslass: Shiva. Pretty obvious but I think it suits her beautifully.

Beheeyem: Jedi. I'd like to think he uses The Force for his power :3

Excadrill: Excaliber. Because he is strong and the name came to me from the beginning of his species name.

Ampharos: Fender. My mind went to the coolest electric object I could think of. She's a girl but it suits her well.

Azumarill: Unfortunately my Huge Power water rabbit is nameless. Anything I thought of seemed so cliche I didn't want to give them to her. Will edit if I ever decide on one.

Me - Ozzy. Obvious reasons there!
Rival - Matt. I know a guy called Matt that bought White 2 and I'm tired of naming them all the same thing so it's a bit of variety from normal.
Snivy/Servine - Blade. It seems like a fitting name for a Servine/Serperior and my awesome friend uses that name on forums :3
Koffing - Greg. It's a flatmate of mine that coughs a lot, end of story. xD
Buneary - Kenna! The female version of Kenny which is the name of my rabbit back at home.
Eevee - Johnny. I have no idea why, it just seemed kinda fitting. x3

This was all on B2, I promise the names will get more creative soon paha. I also have one called Koligbird but I'm keeping that Pokémon's identity a secret for now for various reasons. B)

I named myself Allison in Black 2 and my rival is Elijah. I like the name Allison and Hugh looks more like an Elijah...that's really it? And my team is Challa (Altaria), Mukarma (Muk), Snipe (Emboar), Charlotte (Ampharos), Alucard (Gligar), and Fiona (Swanna). They just all seemed like fitting names, really lol. I don't feel like going through my Japanese Black 2 and White 2's names though. :P

I chose the female trainer and named myself Serena, because every time I look at her Moonlight Densetsu starts playing in my head, and because I honestly don't like the design for the male trainer; he looks ridiculous. My rival was named Darien, for obvious reasons...although in hindsight I think Jadeite might have been a better name. I didn't bother nicknaming my Pokemon, although the urge to call my Oshawott "Revolver" was one I had to fight.

I named myself Hannah, as it is my real name. My rival is Marvin, and I'm not sure why I named him that. The only Pokemon I currently have is Snivy the Snivy, as I've only just started my White 2.
