How often do you nickname your pokemon?

I normally only give nicknames to pokemon I plan on EV training. In rare circumstances, I might give one a nickname if I can think of a pun appropriate to the species shortly after I catch it.

I nickname a Pokemon if I think of a good enough name when first catching/hatching.

I nickname EVERY Pokemon I get. EVERY SINGLE ONE. And I think up a different name for every one.

Nobody else in the game or the anime (aside from the out of nowhere examples like Ritchie) nicknames their Pokemon so I don't like to do it.

Just pulls me out of it when I have Buttfartz the Girafarig and everyone else just calls their Pokemon by their actual names.

I just change their name so that it's not all caps:

I name anything I plan to keep as a permanent member of my team.

Same here. It's a wonder that I haven't run out of new nickname ideas by now.

I nickname my starter, and any pokemon that beat the E4 with me.
