Name: Barrage
Rival: Kyte (Just because he looks like a Kyte to me.)

Serperior - Sekinal (Just an original name.)
Lapras - Kristoph (Another original name, and Lapras just feels like a Kristoph.)
Tyranitar - Tahnai (Yet again, another original name LOL.)
Flygon - Aria (One of Flygon's Pokedex info mentions that its wings can make a sound of a woman singing.)
Latios - Eonalias (Just a combination of Eon and a random word.)
Espeon - Reki (Named after a character from Aria of the Scarlet Ammo, a serious I enjoy.)

In Japanese version, I named the character as myself: Felita
and the rival is Baka *shot*

in USA version, I chose boy and named the character 'Lie'- a part of my Chinese name plus to troll people XD
And the rival is Hulk.
Let's see that 'rage unleashing' scene XD

Serve your Kyogre right

I just went with the default names Nate and Hugh

As for the pokemon I don't usually nickname them often but I did name my Galvantula Twitch (formerly Tweek when it was a Joltik) and my Skarmory Metalstorm (probably gonna change it to Metalcore)

I named my character Byakuya, after Byakuya Kuchiki because he is my favorite male Bleach character. My rival was named Mayuri, after Mayuri Kurotsuchi, my least favorite "good guy" character from Bleach.
My current team in White 2 (because it's the only one I own for now), after defeating Iris, and going through Whitetree Hollow, is:
Zangetsu/Garchomp (simply because the fins on Garchomp remind me of Ichigo Kurosaki's Zanpakuto in its Shikai state)
Shirayuki/Glaceon (I wanted to put the full name of Rukia Kuchiki's Zanpakuto, Sode no Shirayuki, however the ten letter name limit didn't allow for that)
Benihime/Latias (Benihime, when translated to English, means either "Crimson Princess" or "Red Princess". Therefore, it is a fitting name for my Latias)
Virizion (I honestly couldn't be bothered trying to think of a nickname for this thing)
RyujinJaka/Emboar (Bla bla bla most powerful Fire-Type Zanpakuto bla bla bla fitting name for Emboar bla bla bla)
Haineko/Liepard (Haineko, when translated to English, means "Ash Cat")

If I remember correctly, my name is Vash, and my rival was Knives. Simply because I love Trigun and Vash is probably my favorite anime character ever.

I don't normally nickname my pokemon, but my Houndoom is nicknamed GIR, and I don't remember what I called Crobat.

I usually name myself Ethan(it's not my real name, but I liked it because it was the default for the HG/SS protagonist) but this time I choose "Hikaru", maybe because the main character looks Japannese

Pokemon nicknames are stupid cause it evolves and then the nickname that suited the lower evolution doesn't suit the evolution.

Well, when I named my character a few months back, I didn't really realize that I'd probably have to explain the name to my online friends I'd be playing with, and I didn't really think about it untill I had a battle with Alex. I named my character RQVHUL, which directly translated, doesn't mean a thing, however the Q is meant to be the letter ø, which I wasn't able to choose, in which case it'd be translated to ***hole. The story behind that was from a kind of a running gag between me and my friend, when he decided to play Sapphire. He'd never really played through a Pokemon game before, and the only reason he chose to was because he found out how much of a fan I was of the franchise. In the beginning he didn't take it seriously though, because he was in the mindset of so many others, being certain that Pokemon was only for little kids, and thus wasn't serious in naming the character. And thus, RQVHUL was created, which would turn out to be the name I would use in any other Pokemon game. He started having fun with the game and started taking it more seriously, and for some reason, and we just started liking the name for some reason. We pronounced it the way it was spelled though, so it never actually felt like the word it was supposed to be, which may be why we liked it lol. But yeah, that's the story of my characters' name.

I named the rival Kevin, which is the name of a really annoying guy that lives here in the town. For some reason, he always wanted to hang out with me, which wasn't really mutual. It came to a point where, whenever someone knocked on the door, I'd always have to check who it was before I went to open the door, which was hard to be subtle about, since there's a window on the door :( Eventually he stopped coming over all the time, and I was once again free \o/ But yeah, that's the reason I chose that name for my rival :D

As for my Pokemon, I chose either not to name them, unless I had a perfect name for them, if it was a Pokemon which either resembled someone here from PC or was one that they really liked, or whatever name the friend I mentioned earlier could lash out whenever he was over :p
Not removing this from my signature!
