I think it was a sometimes kind of thing pre Gen 4. After that I started naming all of the ones I catch, even HM slaves, temps, gift Pokemon and eggs that didn't give me what I wanted.

I don't name legendaries though.

It makes me more attached to them.

Did it once in Emerald and Platinum, though now I'm really starting to get back into it. It really does make my Pokemon feel special.

Currently playing White 2:
Pignite - Mephiles
Luxray - Blackblaze (bred & traded)
Deino - Twilight (bred & traded)
Espeon - Azazel
Glaceon - Snowfang
Sandslash - Shadow
(future capture) Frilish - Tidalwave

I do sometimes. I would all the time if I was more creative and had the ability to name all of them something unique.
You think your lag is bad? It took Jesus three days to respawn.

I only nickname Pokémon I plan on using, and even then only occasionally. No point in going through the effort of coming up with a good name if I'm never going to see it.
Why do I have to move with the crowd of kids that hardly notice I'm around? I work myself to death just to fit in.

I never used to, then I did a Nuzlocke and now I do more often than not. Sometimes it takes me way too long to come up with a name so I skip it.
I like Monster Rancher.

It's a habit I picked up recently, but yeah. Not for every damn Pokemon, but for the ones I use or like the most, I do.
