    I was wondering. Who gives nicknames to their Pokemon?
    Personally, I don't.

    I sometimes give nicknames to my Pokémon, depending on whether I'm bored or not lazy.

    I never do because i feel it tarnishes them, if we could just randomly change them in the menu then i might use it for organizing.

    No, because I'm not very creative, and I don't want to seem immature by giving my Pokemon vulgar nicknames.

    I always give my pokemon a theme.
    Since my guy is named Hitler, my main pokemon is Nazi. (and my rival is Jew, but I bet some guessed that already)
    Now i'm just naming everything after elements in the periodic table.

    Not naming your pokemon looks lame when you go into battle. Unless you name them stupid crap of course, then it'd be better to stick with default.

    My Pokemon are worthless to me [​IMG]
    On a more *ahem* serious point, I sometimes name them, especially if I used PPSE to clone them. I always give them a slightly more clever name than Pikachu, like hax0rCHE [​IMG]

    I don't, 'cause if I nickname one then I feel the need to nickname everything I'll use in battle... and I'm not creative.

    Rarely. I named Snorlax "Fatass" and Steelix "SolidSnake". Yes, those are lame nicknames.

    I only nickname the ones I plan to keep in my party.

    Sometimes, when I'm feeling immature, I nickname the Pokemon that I trade to NPCs, for example I caught a Bellsprout and nicknamed it VaginaFace, then traded it for the Onix in Violet City. I also nicknamed the Drowsee, that I traded for Machop, my bitch, it was kind of funny to see "Take good care of my bitch." What can I say, sometimes I'm just feeling silly.
