I tend to pick a random name out of a list of really stupid/derpy names that I have. I named my Espeon Goober, for example. --- "I see the way you look at him. I'm a man too, ya know? I go pee pee standing up!" http://i.imgur.com/DtiOyo0.png

The more I think about it, the more I want my next Heatran to be named Rubicante... --- I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me. Stunfisk is the epitome of monstrous majestic legendary creatures that spew fire.

I just use a nickname I think fits the Pokemon
e.g. I called my Azumarill "Bubbles", and my Lilligant "Lilly".

Most of my nicknames consist of famous physicists and philosophers names, comically outdated names (Eustace, Bertram, Tarquin, etc.) and abstract concepts. --- "It was like unwrapping a wonderful present -- a present made out of presents." - Graham Linehan, describing the Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask

Most of my pokemon have set names I always use, like Joyeuse (Weavile) or Almace (Vaporeon). Almost all are named after swords and other trinkets --- R - Official Matador of the Shin Megami Tensei IV board - Official Stahl of the FE: Awakening board

It all depends. For example: I named my Arcanine after Jon Snow's direwolf, Ghost. --- GT: Symbiote 727 Tom Brady is Eli Manning's b*tch. Giants baby!

Whatever fits the pokemon.
Kangaskhan, for instance, I named 2girls1cub. All Kangaskhan are females so there's 2 girls and 1 cub. 1cub also plays off the cubone/kangaskhan theory, 1cub -> cub1 -> cubone. Also, it plays off of 2 g**** 1 cup.
O.O I can't believe thats considered censor bypassing... --- Dick Tracy

I usually give them a fitting nick. If I can't think of one, I search for one. --- Pokemon red randomizer nuzlocke! http://www.gamefaqs.com/boards/367023-pokemon-red-version/66003773 The Official Shiny Zangoose of the X/y Board!

I usually name my Pokemon any normal human names that come to mind, like Richard or Stephanie.
