Every since I did my first Nuzlocke I simply must name them. It once took me a full 5 minutes of thinking before I found an acceptable name. I can't remember using that pokemon though... --- Newbie PKMN Trainer: 0132-8070-8825 BLACK

Never --- I think it's only fair that we throw monopoly money at strippers with fake boobs.

depends on the kind, I like to name mine after fictional monsters (for example first Tentacool is named Kraken).

Almost never, I just don't get attached to them like some people do. The only times I remember naming them was when I was capturing them for completion and they were a particular pain in the ass, so I would give them degrading or hilarious names. --- "They don't think it be like it is, but it do." - Oscar Gamble Should have.

Each play through I either name everyone or nobody. I think I've gone through each game once with nicknames, and at least ten times each without. --- Evelynn is my waifu. Help... Me...

A always do. I feel that calling my pokemon by their species name would have the same effect as
-Calling Daisy (my dog): Dog -Calling Clarabelle (my cat): Cat -Calling Barfy (my other cat): Cat
Not only would Clarabelle and barfy have conflicting names, that seem very dumb and boring. --- I like pokemanz. Official Golbez of the pokemon black2 and white2 boards.

Not since my starter pokemon in silver when I was 6 and thought that I was going to be the pokemon and it would be my name

I almost always give my Pokemon nicknames, unless they're Legendaries. In that case, I'll simply name them what they are (Latios would be named Latios, for example). --- Sab_Liath defeats Topic! Gains 89 EXP! Learns Magma Drill!
