So, this is a thread to discuss your Pokémons' nicknames.

I have a bunch that I really don't remember but here are the ones I do know:

Charizard named Char-Char
Arcanine named Arkana (name when I got him, too lazy to change it)
Various Eevees named after various characters I like

And I mostly name my Pokémon human names. :P
 

Dr. Javelin

Nathan Latsk
Patton the Blastoise was by far the best name I've ever come up with.

Other notable names:
Quixote the Esvavalier
Specter the Chandelure
Red Eyes the Zekrom
Vesuvius the Volcarona
 

Zae

Donkey Kong

Estelle(Gardevoir)
Leia(Galvantula)
Nina(Roserade)
Blaze(Arcanine)
Velxis(Crobat)
Jin(Lucario)
Yuri(Absol)


Yeah most of mine are just random names but others are from characters in gaming history or names I made for my little fiction story.
 

GalacticPetey

Donkey Kong
I used to name my Pokémon. My new ones don't have names, except for my Torterra, who I've had since day 1. His name is BruteRoot. Yep, named him after that Venusaur in the first Pokemon movie.
 

MnSG

Cosmic Beauty
I used to nickname my Pokemon, considering that most trainers nicknamed their Pokemon in the Pokemon Stadium titles; the nicknames also affected their coloring. However, as of the 4th generation and so forth, I've stopped nicknaming my Pokemon.

I only gave nicknames to my pokémons for the first two generations because it changed their color on Stadium games, but then I have never give any nicknames.

I actually named my starter Angie for no reason (I changed it later, I didn't realize it was a boy. :P)
 

Red Barchetta

Talk less, smile more.
I used to give my Pokemon the oddest and silliest names for the first 4 Gens and White, but for White 2, I've started naming them people from Youtubers real names (I've gone through, like, 7+ names from Stephenvlog, including Stephen, Mallory, Kepler, Sagan, Alex, Rocko, etc.)
 

Pyro

Power Star
Started nicknaming with HeartGold.

I have a Ariados and a Camerupt, named Barry and Remond, respectively.

A Sceptile named Lizzard, a Delcatty...who doesn't have a nickname, a Mightyena named Christian (formerly named "Bitch"), a Swellow named Sammy, an Azumaril named Mario, and a Linoone named Fluffy.

Pokemon Diamond:
My Empoleon is called Piply, and his best friend, a Pachirisu, is called Stump. Then there's Terminator the Floatzel and his wife Sally 07 the Luxray. No idea. My Staraptor is called Shiin, and a Drifloon named Drifter


I'll get Platinum, HeartGold and White's teams too.
