Personally, I can't stand them. There's nothing I hate more that doing a Wonder Trade and getting a Pokémon with some doofy sounding nickname. Even worse is when I'm on the GTS and looking for a specific Pokémon and the only viable one has a nickname. I get why people nickname their Pokémon. It's fine if you plan to keep them for yourself, but I'm sure I'm not the only one who doesn't want to get a Pokémon in a trade with an annoying name that you are stuck with. The situation is made even worse if it's a Pokémon you can't breed.

Your thoughts?

Nicknames are a lot of fun, so long as the name isn't something stupid.

I can understand disliking stupid names, but if you don't like the nickname, just breed it and release it. Problem solved.

I nickname every Pokemon I catch or hatch, and I think it's annoying/upsetting when I receive a Pokemon through trade that hasn't been nicknamed. You're stuck with the name even if they haven't been nicknamed too so it works both ways.

Nicknames are really dumb. I don't want your ****ing dude named Fred or some ****. **** off


It's really "nerdy" or "loser"ish.

not nicknaming your pokemon is like getting a dog and just calling him dog.

I hate them with a passion and I could get the best looking shiny from a Wonder Trade. If its nicknamed I would have to put it back in as I hate nicknamed Pokémon.

I love nicknames. It shows what kind of trainer has the pokemon.
I always get sad when people don't name their pokemon I mean they're supposed to be like a type of pet to you right?
Do you just call you dog "Dog" or something? (i mean..........i do.......to joke around but she does have a proper name too)

I never try to give joke names, even when I name them on the spot and can't think of anything "good". It still gets a name.

Like all the non-shiny Eevees that I'm whisking through Wonder Trade all get nicknames.

Through wondertrade I had a Dragalge named "USEDCONDOM". I also had something crappy named "my peeeeee." I personally don't mind nicknames but they really need to be changeable for these situations.

You can name it and not nickname it.
