View Full Version : Do You NickName Your Pokemon?

04-05-2009, 10:02 PM
I do. How about you guys?

04-05-2009, 10:05 PM
Sometimes I feel tempted to, but I never actually do it.

04-05-2009, 10:09 PM
I never do. Mostly because I can never come up with a name for them in the first place. :P

04-05-2009, 10:11 PM
I'm too lazy to think up a nickname :)

I usually don't, but if i become really fond of one, like my luxray, then i nickname it.

04-05-2009, 10:14 PM
Yup, but it's sometimes hard to come up with a good nickname. Here are Pokemon from my Diamond (about to be sent to Platinum):

Infernape = Killer
Crobat = Batman
Steelix = The Rock
Gastrodon (West Sea) = Hardcore
Jolteon = Shocker
Lucario = Legend

I have yet to nickname any of my Pokemon, but I should nickname the ones I use for competitive battling to confuse my opponent!

No. I don't get the point. I know people that do nickname their Pokemon, but it's time consuming (thirty seconds is too much time you know? xD), and is really unnecessary for me. >_>

Yes, I do. It just makes them feel more personal.
*too lazy to list any right now*

Oh heck yes, I love nicknaming my Pokemon. I always do it, even for ones that I can't think anything up for. That's why I hate trading in-game cuz those always have stupid names and you can't even change them.

Oh totally. I always give them the same kind of nickname that I give my URPG Pokemon, Japanese ones that fit them.

04-06-2009, 12:04 AM
When I NN it's so it's not capital letters so I nickname PIKACHU - Pikachu.

04-06-2009, 12:19 AM
I nickname my Pokemon once in a while. Mostly, I name the cool Pokemon like legendaries and such.

Usually only the ones I intend to level to 100. The others... I don't really bother with.

04-06-2009, 12:36 AM
Only one.

It depends. I only nickname the Pokemon I like.

04-06-2009, 05:07 AM
I named my Gyarados Magikarp. [:

04-06-2009, 05:29 AM
Heck yes! I always name my Pokemon. Guess it's a habit, but I just do (even if they're totally random names.)

Kovu = Rampardos (M)
Ty = Torterra (M)
Sparky = Luxray (M)
Chompers = Gabite (M)
Aquos = Floatzel (M)
Plasma = Rotom (M)
Raptus = Staravia (M)
Auroro = Riolu (M)
Eekk! = Haunter (M)
Roselia = Iris (F)
Boo! = Haunter (F)

Yep, I name em' all.

04-06-2009, 11:33 AM
I just nickname them in order to stop their name's being in Caps. I hate that


04-06-2009, 11:39 AM
Every single one is nicknamed. I nickname them using related Japanese names, such as my Mudkip, whose Japanese name means "blue." *and I'm too lazy to go dig it up*

04-06-2009, 12:19 PM
Not usually but I do sometimes.

Gold Rush
04-06-2009, 12:26 PM
I nickname all of my important Pokemon, but I usually don't nickname the mon when I catch it :o

Ah Beng I the Pikabeng

Only one.

... O_O

What an unusual name for an Omastar.

Anyway. I don't give nicknames. Why should I anyway?

Sorry, but I really don't see the point... =|

Sometime I do. I try to find something that is creative and lol.

ex. Piplup nickname: Happy Feet

04-07-2009, 03:11 PM
Only when I'm joking around in the game

But mostly no


04-09-2009, 12:07 PM
I name every one of my Pokemon. :P
If I don't, it's like calling them "dog" or "cat". They have to have names! >:3


04-09-2009, 01:05 PM
I always nickname my Pokemon cause they might feel not cared for enough if I don't. =]

04-09-2009, 01:17 PM
i only name the pokemons i really like, like picollo the shuppet and jack the mightyena. i also nickname pokemons for my battle team

04-09-2009, 01:19 PM
I usually don't, unless I really like the mon or I thought up some awesome novelty name.

I nickname every single one of my Metapods, though. hint hint

04-09-2009, 01:27 PM

But unfortunately, I never nicknamed my fondest starter, Chikorita. It was simply...Chikorita.

I nickname most every Pokemon I catch now. My Venusaur (who sucks, by the way) is nicknamed...uh...I forget. But my Pidgeot in FireRed is named Pudge. In Pokemon Mystery Dungeon, when I was in my Naruto phase, I named my Marowak...Gaara. And if I could, I'd nickname the pokemon in Pokemon Ranger. I'll make sure to mickname my 'mon in Platinum, too.

04-12-2009, 08:43 PM
Of course yes!I love nicknaming my pokemon.I like nicknaming my umbreon shadow.

04-12-2009, 08:45 PM
Always, if it's part of my party or I really like the 'mon. I can't stand having the normal Pokemon names. If I catch something I know I'll never use I won't name it, though.
