An exclamation point for extra excitement. c:

Does anybody else find themselves frequently nicknaming their Pokemon? I only ever started to do that a bit late in Gen IV, but boy, do I come up with some weird ones. :s
(In general, I only really nickname Legendaries and Pokemon I mean to use for teams~)

Basically, what do you plan on nicknaming your brand-new Gen V 'mons?

For me:

Oshawott: Clyde (Pshh, yes.)
Miccino: Montblanc (Because that would just be hilarious.)
Cottonee: SAK (Swiss Army Knife. ;3)
Venipede: Java (Java Sea)
Axew: Ayla (Chrono Trigger ftw.)
Litwick: Mattieu (I won't explain the joke because then it won't be funny to me anymore.)

In the event I get a Cobalion, I'll have a hard time deciding whether to name it Cobalt or Germanium. If I ever get a Snivy, Gilbert for sure. Mienshao will probably be Kojondo, or just shortened to Jondo~ I'll prolly post more later.
Well, a time-traveling phone booth can only take you so far...

When I nickname 'mons, I name them around a central theme. I will most likely nickname my team in B/W, but I'm not sure what the theme of it will be yet.

At the start of my every game I usually nickname every poke I catch but eventually it begins to become a chore. My nicknames are not very original like my Torterra is nicknamed "Forest" and when I flee from a wild pokemon I'm like "Run Forest, run!" XD

I normally try to nickname Pokemon I catch, especially ones on my team. I like to think of original names & it sometimes becomes difficult, but it's worth it.

It is pretty difficult, but I still do it. Some of my pokemon I give human names (Torterra = Colt), while others I give "nicknames" (Togekiss = QT3.14 and Pikachu = Static).

If I do nickname my Pokes, its usually something I find comical (like something taking the mickey out of the Pokemon itself if it looks dumb), a random name, or something sentimental if I actually like the Pokemon. But hey, thats just me. ;P

I have nicknamed my Pokemon since I started in Sapphire. For reasons that are beneficial too me. It helps me decipher between which Pokemon has which moveset especially if I have more than one. Like example I have 6 Electivire each one unique and different. I use two of them a lot more than other's. I named one Hellboy & the other Ice-Cube, both of them have almost same moveset where they differe is their Hidden Power capabilities. One has HP Grass the other has HPIce. When I want one of the other I know which to pick. My favorite nickname by far that makes people laugh everytime they see it until it owns them are Lady Gaga (My Jynx) & 69's D Way (My Lickitung). I def make it comical like most.

I can only think of nicknames to give the starter I'm choosing cause at this point I don't have a team in mine that I would use, I guess i can just figure it out as I play the game.

So far, I've only named my Oshawott (Mijimaru. :D) I can get creative with names, but I'll have to wait and see.

I feel a lot of the names this time around were quite uncreative. So I'm giving nicknames to as many Pokemon as I can.
I know Saphy's going to name the winter bear Snotcicles. I've named my Dewott "Subete Umi", a combination of All Blue and Blue Sea because I was thinking of those One Piece references at the time.

I've always nicknamed my pokemon. From the first game I played, to the newest game. It just adds another level of fun for me.

Servine-Imperial(Obvious reasons)

Munna-51(Munna eats dreams. Dreams=Dreamland. Dreamland=Area 51. Area 51=51)

Roggenrola-Monolith(Cuz it's fun)

Scraggy-Elastiband(Obvious reasons+it makes me laugh)

Palpitoad-Tock(Phantom Tollbooth FTW)

Herdier- Hound(Yeah...)
