How often do you nickname your pokemon?

I nickname all my Pokemon.

When breeding, I tend to remember which Pokemon by starting with a similar quality of that Pokemon and then just start alphabetically.

Like if I was breeding Spoinks, I would go Aoink, Boink, Coink, Doink, Eoink Foink and then IV check them.

Never, and it irks me that you can't get rid of nicknames on traded pokemon.

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).

Same with me

Only to the Pokemon who have good IVS and are EV trained.

i used to not nickname any, but now i try to name all

I name everything that has a gender an actual name of that gender, such as a female Kingdra i nicknamed Claire. If I can find a good reference, such as the one mentioned, then I'll name them that. If not, I just name them a random name. Genderless Pokemon I name their species name, but getting rid of the caps.

I never nickname mine.

Legendary Pokemon don't tend to receive nicknames from me. However, the vast majority of my Pokemon since Gen 4 now receive nicknames. Most of my Gen 3 ones don't.
