Most of the time, and I always nickname my starter.

Never at all. But I did name them a couple times back in the RBY days. --- "There is good in this world, Mr.Frodo.....and it's all worth fighting for." Samwise Gamgee in Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

Only a very few special ones get nicknames. If I can think of anything at that moment that is (by that I mean when I catch them, duh).
this, and if i find out that i was saying their regular name wrong, I'll change their nickname to what i thought it was XD --- Official general of the Rekku army Were you dropped on your head a lot as a child, while eating paint chips, underneath powerlines?

A good amount of them unless I'm breeding for certain natures/IVs. --- Let this be a lesson kids. When debating,solve your disagreements not with words but by screaming,"I am a man!!!!" and punching them in the gut.

I only really gave my Pokémon nicknames in Gens 1-3. I stopped after seeing that nicknames didn't alter coloring in Gen 3 3D battling games. --- http://i458.photobucket.com/albums/qq303/CharizardFire6/Char-Brawl.gif The official Charizard of the Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 boards.

Only when I think of a good one, or when I'm doing a Nuzlocke.

I always do, although going through Pokemon Fire Red again, I checked who I had before I deleted my file. The nicknames were bad. I'll leave it at that. --- "My plan was perfect. But there was one thing I overlooked, one factor I failed to calculate. He's a dumbass. And there's no accounting for dumbassness.

Does anyone else rename them with the same name, but not in all caps? It always bugged me enough to force me to rename every single one of 'em.
My first Snorlax was named Fat Bastard. It was magnificent.
