How do you feel about nicknames?

I actually like the unchangeable nicknames through trades... it lets the Original Trainer always have a little piece of their personality/self in the Pokemon :)


If the Original Trainer had a personality worth saving, then it wouldn't be a problem. Sadly Wonder Trade is full of douchebags.


My first ever wondertrade I got an Inkay with a highly inappropriate nickname (I was more upset about the principle of it all than the nickname. I mean really, what if some poor 8 year old got it? Parents are already paranoid about online interaction as it is). So yes, Wonder Trade is full of douchebags.

I don't nickname my pokemon because I DON'T want to leave such a permanent mark on the pokes. I mean, just having my name there as OT is good enough for me. Nicknames bother me (I always just use them as breeders and make my own) so I don't do it to other people lol.

Until it's released back into the wild and it has no name no more.

Lol, just had this discussion with my brother. I ALWAYS nickname when given the choice, even when I know I'm just gonna trade it away. That said, I don't do trolly nicknames, though I'm sure not everyone is going to be happy with a male Jigglypuff named Sir Jiggalot.
