Assuming you do. Ignore if you don't, or post, I don't care--

Anyway, how do you choose the nicknames of your Pokemon? Are they based off a series you like? Your friends irl (I am assuming you have friends, ignore if you don't)? Foods you like? Plants? Renowned mythological figures? Past lovers? Brands of batteries? Random?

I name mine after characters from A Song of Ice and Fire, or Game of Thrones. I named my Reshiram from Black "Daenerys," and I had a Watchog named "Underfoot."

I name mine based off what they are.
Example I name my Vulpix Flare or Shinx Sparx.

For me, foreign words and names that suit the individual Pokémon - I mix my teams often so I don't name them as part of sets.

I don't even consider nicknaming a pokemon. My friend, nicknames the pokemon by the last syllable with an 'X' at the end(e.x. venuSAUR X, gardeVOIR X), but that got really wierd when he got a spirtiTOMB X
Im here to cause an uproar. The following statements are true.
I don't like ANY pokemon from Gen V. Ash is extremely stupid.

I give them simple dog-like names based on what they are. Things like Spike or Slash.

On the rare occasion that I do, I basically use the first name that pops into my head while looking at it.

I also may use a different localization of the pokemon's name.

you catch it, and a screen will appear asking if you want to give it a nick. choose yes. Another screen will appear, showing capital letters. you can also choose if you want to add more lower case ones.

I don't think I've nicknamed any of my pokemon since gen 3. I kind of like to leave them all blank slates so that they are optimal for trading, even if I never intend to trade it.

My girlfriend, on the other hand, names everything. She spends about 5 minutes coming up with a name whenever she catches something. They seem kind of random to me though, from what I've seen. Some are named after people, stores, characters...

I don't, unless I can think of a funny or clever one.
