I usually do, but at the start of a new generation I think I might not, or I'll forget the Pokemon's actual names.

Only ones I can think of a fitting name for. I didn't up until HGSS when I started using names from mythology, history, literature, other games and so-forth. I have a few silly or random ones, but for the most part they follow that pattern. And I don't name legendaries; a unique and mythological force of nature is above that.

Only Pokemon that need nicknames.
Like Fluffy the Shiny Haxorus.
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me.

Anyone I plan on using, I usually will nickname makes it more personal

I only nickname Pokemon I know I'll be using for an extended period of time, like my starter for instance.

Yes, and it seems ProJared shares the same naming style that I do. Randomly mash sounds together until a name comes up that is liked.

Yeah i do, i usually think of the first thing that comes to mind. Usually something funny, which is in regard to their appearance, or instead their resemblance in pop culture and/or real life counterpart.

For example, i nicknamed my Magmar 'KFC' obviously because of fried chicken, or my Pachirisu 'Toothpaste' because it resembles toothpaste in my opinion, haha.

Other ones that are my favorites are:

Kricketune - HansZimmer
Rampardos - Zidane (The soccer player who head-butted some guy on the field)
Torterra - Gaia (The one from God Of War)
Chatot - Iago (Think Alladin, the parrot)
Ledian - Protoman (I see the resemblance)
