Does anyone NOT name their pokemon?

I don't name EVERY Poke I capture.
Only the ones that participate in the main story, and the ones which I EV train.

I didn't nickname them for a long time but I started nicknaming my main Pokemon and that's probably as far as I'll take it.

I only do it in Mystery Dungeon, and even that's rare.

If that offends you for whatever reason, shoot me a PM and I'll correct your misconception.

I haven't named them extensively in the past but this time I thought I would try.

I'm using a theme to name them and my theme is TV Sci-Fi where they actually have ships flying in space. I went to IMDB and created a nice long list of characters from shows I've personally seen and yes, some of them are quite obscure characters that were on only a couple of shows.

My current list of names has over 100 male names and about 75 female names. There's still plenty of shows left for me to name mine if I run that list out.

If I can think up a name, I'll nickname 'em. Otherwise I don't.

I name them all, often times renamed once they evolve too.

I always nickname my pokemon. Ones I don't use get joke names, though. Sometimes that comes back to bite me when I decide to use them.

Traded a Volbeat to Ruby for the entry, decided to use it... Named Bugsy. Why not?

I only nickname the Pokémon that I use in my party.
