      When on my first play through of a new generation Pokémon game I don't use nicknames so that I can easily remember their actual names.
      After the Elite Four I have six Pokémon with nicknames so far;
      Vulthuryol the Charizard
      Bubblegum the Azumarill
      Excalibur the Aegislash
      Mourningwood the Trevanant
      van Gogh the Smeargle
      Goozilla
      the Goodra

          I have a new team set up now.

          Name: Plutia
          Nickname: Iris Heart (reference to Hyperdimension Neptunia. You should watch it)

          Garchomp-Zangetsu (Cutting Moon. Picked for Garchomp's arm fins looking like the blade)
          Pikachu-Gonryomaru (Stern Spirit. Picked for both being Electric)
          Aerodactyl-Kazeshini (Wind of Death. Fossil=Death, and it is a Flying-type)
          Blaziken (no nickname yet because it is the event one)
          Charizard-Ryujin Jakka (Flowing Blade-like Flame. Nickname I wanted for Blaziken, see above. Was originally going to nickname it Tobiume (Flying Plum Tree))
          Linoone-Wabisuke (The Wretched One. Picked because Wabisuke is useless in my eyes, and my Linoone is a pure HM Slave)

          I don't nickname my team at all, pretty much the only nicknamed Pokemon I have on X right now is Kinniekins the Braixen which I obtained from Shauna. It's been a tradition that I don't nickname my main team a lot and I probably won't stop it anytime soon.

              Pokelangelo
              D'Artagnan

                You all gave your Pokemon such cool nicknames!! I'm jealous!


                I am not good at finding nicknames so, I don't nickname my Pokemon. I received a Japanese Bulbasaur from a wonder trade and I really liked the Japanese letters but the name changed to English when it evolved into an Ivysaur oh well.

                The only Pokemon I've ever nicknamed is a Skitty back in Sapphire. Her name is Baci (doesn't make any sense, I was only 8 lmao). I am planning to transfer her to X&Y tho. *waiting for the Pokemon Bank*

                Edit: * OMG. I just googled the word "Baci" and it means "kisses" in Italian I didn't know that lol *

                  Chespin - Marron, (from Chespin's Japanese/French name, meaning chestnut)

                  Talonflame - Starla (I named my Starly in Diamond "Tally", refering to Talons. Because that name was taken, I thought it'd be clever to reference my now-Staraptor.)

                  Pikachu - Yellow (My pikachu headcanon is male, so it was a pleasant surprise to end up encountering a female. Named after the manga character who I dearly love. <3 )

                  Venusaur - Leon (I changed his name multiple times... I just wanted something that started with L like leaves.)

                  Azumarill - Sayaka (From PM Madoka Magica character. I just finished the series before starting XY. I imagine her using Aqua Jet as if she was rushing in for a sword attack. I think of her tail glowing sorta like a soul gem.)

                  Meowstic M - Cream. Sounds like a very passive, soft name for a cat. The fact that the female's white fur resembles cream more, yet I'd name a female Meowstic one day something dark like "Coffee", is where I was going with this.

                  I really dislike how the name converts back to English when they evolve, too. It's unfortunate because the name being foreign shows how unique the pokemon is to your team.

                  I love it when names end up having a significant meaning to them only in hindsight. :D That's a reall cool coincidence for her name.

                    The name turning into your own region on evolution is a bummer, but also a bit nice flavor-wise. Imagine getting a Charmander from Japan that understands only Japanese. After you've trained it a while, it finally understands your language and responds to the new name

                    I have the tendency to give most of my competetive bred/trained Pokemon (not all of them) nicknames which are also references to other video games. Just to list a couple of those:

                    - my first Mawile (f) -> Luna (a character in Lunar)
                    - my first Volcarona (f) -> Iris (summon in the second Golden Sun game)
                    - Aegislash (m) -> Historica (a sword in Radiant Historia)
                    - Froslass (f) -> Yukimaru (double reference, actually; one being the origins which it was based of and the other being a character in Disgaea 2)
                    - Ampharos (m) -> Amphi (the Ampharos in Pokemon Gold)
                    - Gastrodon (m) -> Whelk (the first boss in FF6)
                    - Dragonite (f) -> Arche (one of the main characters in Tales of Phantasia)

                      I'm not good at nicknames, but there are two that I like that I thought of. I named my Lucario Sebastian because that was the name I was originaly going to have when I was born before my parents changed their mind.

                      The other is my Umbreon who is nicknamed Kitt, as in K.I.T.T from Knight Rider. Both Umbreon and KITT are tanks! Plus, they both look pretty sleek and serious.

                          I find myself sitting there for about ten or even twenty minutes trying to come up with a good nickname. Half the time I never feel 100% satisfied with what I have because coming up with names is the bane of my existence but uuuuggghh it's so much fun to nickname Pokemon.

                          Greninja- Jiraiya (going more off of the folktale as opposed to the Naruto character)

                          Charizard- Amaterasu

                          Gogoat- Mountie

                          Aegislash- Hexcalibur

                          Tyrantrum- Emperoar

                            I sometimes nickne my pokemon. But I have decided to nickname my aim team this time (which isn't something I usually don't do);

                            Greninja ~ Hank
                            Charizard ~ Zuko
                            Trevenant ~ Bumi
                            Tyrantrum ~ Stan
                            Xerneus ~ Forest Spirit

                            Then I have my event Blaziken which I couldn't name. But I did catch a fletchling at the beginning of my game (now a Talonflame) and is named Flare.

                              My name in game is Acapella, I usually base my names off of musical terms and objects (e.g Instruments) for example, my protagonist for my recent Crystal playthrough was Capo, and my Sapphire speedrun was Carol.
                              My Starter's name (Froakie) was Cola Bottle, because I was drinking Pepsi at the time, and Pepsi's a blue can, so... (I'm not very creative when it comes to starters)
                              I don't really nickname much else, unless I think that I'm going to be using it constantly, For example, my Charizard's nickname is Blaze, since I knew that it would be a pokemon I know I would get attached to. However, I don't bother with other pokemon, because they're mainly either to finish the pokedex, or to just trade with (e.g, my Flabebe. Sorry.)

                                I nickname pokemon after other game characters name when I'm going to use them frequently, but usually leave them without nickname to save some time and change it later.

                                  Charizard: Groudon

                                  Need help with my Gastrodon though. I made him specifically to counter the large amounts of Rotoms so if anyone has a cool nickname I'd appreciate it (something like Rotom Slayer or something).

                                      Kabutops = Kabukurosu, fuses Kabu with Kill in Japanese.

                                      Garchomp = Kabuchomps, because mega Garchomp has Kabutops claws!

                                      Goodra = DeeDee, those "Horns" look like pigtails. So I named it after DeeDee from Dexters Lab.

                                      Pinsir = Dexter, small and angry. Clearly supposed to be Deedee's brother.

                                      Sableye = Twitch. Well, he twitches so yeah...

                                            Course, in Gen I, Amphy was ELectrode, and ''dragons'' were normal, I believe, but I called it Draco anyway.

                                                My original Elite Four team was:

                                                Butterfree nicknamed The Helm
                                                Chesnaught nicknamed The Shield
                                                Aegislash nicknamed The Sword
                                                Gogoat nicknamed The Greaves
                                                Charizard nicknamed The Gauntlet
                                                Yveltal nicknamed Y

                                                Never found a fitting Pokemon for The Armor
