Poking through my Pearl and Platinum files also made me realize I name large amounts of my Pokemon after friends/myself/various characters I've came up with.

Ninetales= Dana
Weavile= Emily
Mismagius= Mia
Pichu= Philpe
Wurmple= Addison
Swinub= ArtJohn
Shaymin= Reaper (Given by a friend)
Floatzel= Kona

Ohb, and singers. I've named lots of Pokemon after singers. >>

do ya wanna get rocked?

I name almost all my pokemon ^^;
even if their name just ends up being something like ABC.
I guess I just find it easier to remember names I know I can actually pronounce better then Pokemon names which to me can be kinda complicated. xP
But if I catch a Pokemon I'm going to trade, I don't name it unless the person I'm giving it to has requested it to have a name.
Usually when I name a Pokemon it's either a name to do with it's type, height or strength.
Hell, I've even named them after cartoon characters before. o-O

I sometimes nickname my 'mons, usually the ones I plan to use to beat the game, and other random catches later on. I do have a problem with not looking at the screen at crucial moments and end up with lots of 'mons called "AAAAAAAA" :(

^What would you name moltres/articuno/zapdos then?

Some of my nicknames come from my inability to speel
Linnone = Linoone.

Others are tradition:
Pidgey-Pidgeot=Zippo
Tailow-Swellow=Zeppo
Starly-Staraptor=Zepha

And some I try to make clever.
Saphira = female Garchomp (named for the female dragon in the book Eragon. Both the main character and I expected our dragons to be male, but were pleasntly surprised when they turned out female)
Hypno = Mesmer (Famous Hypnotist named Meser, and it's also close to Mesmerizing)
Flareon = RapidFire (it's fast and a fire type, and the name itself is actually a real word)


Thank's to Blake... for the awesome sig!

I love the matching names. Like all of my eeveelutions have matching names:

Oleri
Psypheri
Aqualeri
Nocteri
Glaceri
Sparkeri
Inferi

see if you can guess what's what.. hehe.

But I also have Blazechic (Blaziken) and Blazechimp (Infernape), Star Fire (Blazechic's daughter who wasn't meant to evolve but I did it anyway), Illerio (Gallade) Allevia (Gardevoir).. etc.

I have lots of good names, and some bad ones. And when in doubt, I name it after one of it's moves in the final stage movepool or it's nature, or a berry, or one of the location in the game, or an item. For example, Aspear (Grumpig.)

I almost never nickname my pokemon. Although I sometimes call my Garchamp (not nicknamed) chomp-chomp.
I am Lugia, the guardian of the sea.

it's based off the word Olericulture which is a branch of Horticultural studies.. something to do with plants. I just like the name Oleri.

I wanted to do something fun while catching Pokemon for Pokemon Ranch, so I started naming my Shellos after European countries.

always nickname, and my nicknames are so obscure
half the time i just click random letters to begin with and then follow on with whatever flows nicely
example
"perelma" the gyarados
"maitozu" the metagross

and so on..
better than you, est. always

My guess:
Moltres : WindFlame
Articuno : LuckyWind
Zapdos : ZapWind
....
Guessing from that, anyway x3

My Pokemon? I give them random names. Sometimes make them up and when I go back to my Pokemon game [which is occasionally, now..] I think 'wth?'.
Like Josque...

I used to name them really badly e.g Razor the Rayquasa
Now i just name them something to do with them but preferably in another language. One example would be Igniaer the Moltres Ignis=fire aer=air in Latin. Or Himewari the sunflora Himewari=sunflower in Japanese.
A tongue of flame, a breath of air, Mountains high and oceans fair.
A world so bright, yet darkest night, lurks just beyond the verge.
Where light and shadow merge.
