Mushishi is one of my favorite Manga, the Anime was great as well

The Elite Six:

My bro, Dororo. Because Keroro Gunso, I mean, come on, does a more fitting name exist?

Kogasa. Because Touhou.

Ulgamokou. Because Touhou.

Patchouli. Because Touhou

Chomper. Just Because.

Yuyuko. Because Touhou.

And together, my elite six and I form...
Debauchery Tea Party. Because Log Horizon.

I don't like to nickname my Pokemon, I think it's because I like to learn the names, but I'm called L-Meister by the other 4 kids, because my name is too short to have a real nickname.

However, I called my Xerneas "Xerces" because I called it that in front of my mate and he demanded I name it such....

I have a lot of Pokemon, so I'll just talk about my current team. My Trevenant is named Trelawny after Professor Trelawny from Harry Potter. Thought it sounded like a good name for a Grass type. LAWN. Get it? My Houndoom is named Aiden just because it's a more alternative name. My Dragalge is named Serenade because it's a beautiful Pokemon, like a serenade. Barbaracle is named God Forsaken. Have you seen it? Hands down the best name I've given in this game.

Granbull and Pidgeot were obtained through Wonder Trade with no names sadly, but if I were to name them, they'd be Gracie and Poncho respectively. I just call them that in my head even though I can't actually put the name there.

The leaves on its head grow right back even if they fall out.
These bitter leaves refresh those who eat them. Unless you're a rude ho.

My current party:

Lapras - Poseidon (God of the Sea)

Lucario - Kratos (God of War)

Salamence - Alduin (World-Eater of Skyrim)

Blaziken - he was the Mystery Gift Torchic, so I couldn't rename him.

Sylveon - Erana - No particular reason, just a feminine name for the only girl on my team.

Sneasel - not sure if he'll be a permanent party member, but I needed a Dark-type, so he's on a trial run.

I nicknamed my Chespin Timmy because he looked like Timmy Turner from Fairly Odd Parents (of course, he doesn't now that he's evolved).
My Friend Code is 3282-3320-6662. I don't know what I have in my Friend Safari, but I'd appreciate it if you'd add me and PM me your FC.

I have Pokemon X and my starter is Chespin.

I always name the first one of each pokémon I catch, usually something that incorporates their real name... so my Fennekin was named Fennel (like the herb). This does mean I have a tonne of wierd names.

I'm planning on calling my completed team after legendary starships from TV & Animé, these are the ones I've thought of so far..

Gengar: Nostromo
Alakazam: Ryo-Ohki
Galvantula: Far Star
Sylveon: Fireball

If anyone gets any of those references let me know, because you get 10 cool points in the post. :D

Heres the nicknames of my X ingame team.

Most are French names or French Heros names (to fit the kalos region being France).

Gardevoir- Geneviève

Talonflame- Pénélope

Espeon- Frédéric

Blastoise- Napoleon

Xerneas- Charlemagne

The only one to Brake the rule is my Delphox which I named Rommel after the Afrika Korps Field Marshal Erwin Rommel because his nickname was the Desert Fox and Fenikin is a Desert Fox (Fennec fox).

I don't nickname my Pokemon that often (I'm awful at coming up with names for stuff usually). But I have these ones with nicknames on my Y:

Aegislash: Falchion (the blade from Fire Emblem, not the type of sword)
Klefki: Mr. Jingles
Pyroar: Caineghis (a Fire Emblem character)
And I have 3 Espurrs named: Crack Fiend, IWANTYERSOUL, and Cuddles.

Azula//Raichu (named after my bf, not the one from the actual series)

There you have it. :3 I've named my Pidgey digit for many years. I think since I started playing Pokemon Yellow? Originally, it was supposed to rhyme with the pronunciation for pidgeot, which I believe is 'pij-it'. I could be wrong though. Anyway, it just stuck with my ever since then that I've always named my Pidgey Digit.
say my name meow

As a person who typically doesn't nickname their Pokémon, I think I've found the joy in naming them with my post-game team. Note they're still in training, but right now I have with me...

Lux the Shinx
Wasn't really creative with this one, but you get the idea here.

Pixel the Shiny Togetic
Was originally going to be the name for my Vivillion, but I decided to give it to my Togepi instead.

Toothless the Mawile
Kind of like calling the big guy in the group Tiny.

Ness the Dragalage
Even though Dragalage is based on a totally different species, I named her Ness based off of Nessie the Loch Ness Monster.

Sybil the Espeon
Sybil like the oracle. It seemed fitting since Espeon is a Psychic type and it's a girl!

Excalibur the Honedge
Need I say more?

Mawile's name is Filia. (look up Skullgirls)

I don't give my Pokemon nicknames. XD I have no idea why I don't though. It would be nice to give them nicknames, but I suppose I just like them with their original names.
