I nickname my monsters by just thinking of random things i have encountered in life.
like, i caught a magnemite and named him ICP (insane clown posse, for obvious reasons).
When i caught suicune, i named him Rainbow Dash.
how do you come up with nicknames?

Usually either something like what you do or some kind of play on what mon it is or what it's based on. --- Member of FAITH and Official GameFAQS Junk Tech Pokemon Pearl FC: 4553 9411 8020

I don't usually nickname them unless it's a playthrough just to go through the story just for the sake of playing the game. Right now I'm naming all my pokemon after other Nintendo characters based upon similarities.
Feraligatr - KINGK.ROOL Victreebel - P. PIRANHA Vaporeon - ZORA Ampharos - GOHT Togetic (wish I had a Shiny Stone...) - LAKITU Soodowoodo - GREAT DEKU Tyranitar - BOWSER (I almost went with Yoshi, since they're both dinosaurs)
But that's all I can remember right now, because I've been using them in my main team. --- PSN Name: Exkzol Playing: Pokemon Soul Silver, Super Mario Galaxy, God of War III

I nickname them based on how I feel.

I only nickname HM slaves. Usually something silly. Like Owlsworth the hoothoot. Mr Slave the Sudowoodo. As A whole I don't like nicknames. Monster. *Eats a heart* --- Prima Peacock Owls are overrated, Peacocks are where it is at, Monsters.

It depends. Sometimes I name them silly stuff, sometimes serious stuff. Like, for my team in B/W I'm planning:
Sigilyph = Viracocha (I wonder who can get this) Eelektross = LOL WATT Haxorus = Hax 'R' Us
Though I'm not sure what to call my Archeops, Hydreigon or Galvantula :/ --- "He looks like a cross between a 70's porn actor and a pedo cop :/" - LunarRoar on Garet's Dark Dawn appearance

Usually just semi-random things, uncreative nicknames, real names, or obscure references.
Zans the Muurando, Billy the Ulgamoth, Hot Dog the Arcanine, Kelly the Lopunny, W**** the Bibarel, Jake the Jaroda, Wicky the Shandera, Hartz the Kokoromori, Playa the Ditto, etc.
