I stopped after Gen 3, since nicknames had stopped altering coloration in the 3D battling games.

Ever since I saw a friend name his Pidgey KFC... Never going back.

You can probably guess which one I voted for. Although I do have some I personally like and give nice nicknames to.

I want to, but some Pokemon already have cool names to begin with.

Like Greninja. I could nickname it a TON of stuff. But I like Greninja as is. Pyroar is a cool name. But I will nickname him. Chespin? Getting a Nickname ASAP. Treevenant? Might nickname it "Spookytree".

So it's a per Pokemon basics. And I always nickname my Raichu "Slychu".
Donnel is my # 1 bro. We fist bump, slay some risen, eat some chicken strips, bomb the Valmese and steal sugar from Gaius on a daily basis. Like a Boss. FE:A

I rarely nickname my Pokemon, but I still get attached to them. I don't know why, but it just feels better that way to me.

For example, I can't bring myself to call Aggron anything else than Aggron. If I called him Jack or Shadow or anything it would feel weird and I would be unable to care about him.

I guess I'm just weird like that, but that's how I am.

I like most of this gens names, and I generally do puns anyway. Delphox? Chesnaught? Trevenant? Pumpkaboo? These are great names.

And if Im keeping some of them I might as well keep all their original names.

If the names are ugly, then I nickname them. Otherwise I'm fine with their original names.
