I used to never nickname, but I've started to recently. None of them are particularly creative or anything, but I did name my Mewtwo from Fire Red "Zwei" as a permanent insult because of how hard it was to capture (I'd already transferred my masterball up to Platinum for one of the runners). Now he will always be reminded of how he's the second Mew... or whatever.

Every Pokemon I catch. Generally I start off with thinking of things the Pokemon reminds me of. I continue down a chain of related things until I come up with a name out of them. It can be simple like naming a Machop Randy (Macho Man Randy Savage), Kevin the Heracross, or Daedalus the Shroomish to more convoluted references like Hobbitses the Burmy.
The fun is trying to figure them out years later.
