What are some nicknames you've given them? If you don't nickname them, why don't you? Also, is "Blue Moon" a good name for a shiny Umbreon?

Sometimes I do sometimes I don't. It really depends on the Pokemon. I recently got a Muk that I named "The Smooze".

I very much so. I like doing so as giving nicknames to Pokémon gives them more personality. Plus it's fun to think so many different names for just one Pokémon. It takes me a while to think of a name

I usually know what set of moves the Pokemon will have so if you have seen the memes then I usually name them so that when they say, "___, used ____". It says something funny. Like ginger!! Use attract. The move failed!! Lol XD

I like to name my Pokemon other Pokemon names, like my Charmander would be name Squirtle and stuff like that :P

seems odd to give them another Pokemon's name, if they weren't in some way related

 

Naming Suicune, Entei, and Raikou 'Vaporeon', 'Flareon', or 'Jolteon', or vice versa, I can see

Some people just want to watch the sea burn :lol:

 

I always name mine, my two favourite Pokemon are Latias and Latios, which I naturally named Wiggles and Giggles (respectively) :D.

I only name them anymore because it's a habit I got into because of nuzlockes. Some examples of nicknames I've used.

 

Charizard- Yolvendov which is Skyrim dragon language for fire wind dragonkind

Gyarados- Jormangundr AKA the massive world snake that kills Thor during Ragnarok

Haxorus- Scrag ... Don't really have an explanation for this one I just like the way it sounds

Tyrantrum- Dictator after all it is the tyrant lizard king (Tyrannosaurus Rex)

Blaziken- Surtr another destructive thing from Ragnarok

Gengar- Renegade ... It's a spooky ghost

Salamence- Alduiin oh hello eater of worlds from Skyrim

Metagross- Ragnarok ...Speaking of things that will end the world

 

You know, for kids!

Only those pokemon that I really care about or when I'm doing a nuzlocke.

 

In my leaf green nuzlocke, I named my pokemon after shakespeare characters.

 

Pidgeot -> Juliet (Romeo was a fearow I caught on route 4)

Gyarados -> Shylock

Ninetails -> Nerissa (She and Shylock were actually one heck of a team in the last battle)

Venusaur -> Antonio

Jolteon -> Gratiano

Lapras -> Prospero

 

 

In my current run of emerald, I'm a bit more unorganized about it. 

 

Azumarill - Pikablu (pokegod reference)

Makuhita - Clay (after the xiaolin showdown character)

Combusken - ColSanders

Vigoroth - Galumph

I name my Pokemons VERY rarely, I prefer their original names really :) But if I have to, I'd choose a grotesque name x)

I always name my Pokemon, whether it be something obvious like naming my Totodile "Twi", or something silly like naming my Swampert "Blaziken", I've always got something great to name them.

Puns all the time, the worse the better! Or if I can't come up with one just the first thing that comes to mind when I see it.

I always name them. All of my Pokemon are special little cinnamon rolls I am obligated to do so always.

Cradily: Depth

Aerodactyl: Amber

Shiny Magneton :3 : Pulse

Claydol: Illusion (almost named him Clay-Doh)

 

Sharpedo female: Shara

Swellow: Lavalliere

Manectric: Reik

Grovyle: Dawn

 

And so on...

ALWAYS. I pride myself in my witty Pokemon names.  Here's my magnus opuses:

 

Meoletta - Dancing Queen

Dialga - Roaring 20s

Mega Absol - Sephiroth

Giratina - Zorc and Friends

Reshiram - Seto Kabia (Blue Eyes White Dragon)

Scolipede - Sanik

Ho-Oh - Ho-Yay

Greninja - Protears

Diancie - Attack on Dragon

 

If some of these nicknames seem to long, it's because I used showdown for a lot of them, and they allow longer nicknames.

 

EDIT: Forgot about calling my Manaphy Kingdom Hearts

I've picked up the game of Red that I had gotten halfway through last year, and decided to actually name my Pokemon. Some are MLP references, some are other pop culture references, some are just dumb jokes. Off the top of my head I have

 

Raticate- Bitey

Machoke- Roid Rage

Horsea- Shoobedoo

Gyrados- Mr. Fish

Alakazam- Hindenburg

Haunter- Spoopy

Snorlax- Jabba

 

These are some of my personal favorites

Fearow- Peckerhead

Moltres- MgaUtrChkn (Mega Ultra Chicken)

Rapidash- Celestia
