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.

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.

Such as:

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)

And more...

But that's all I can remember right now, because I've been using them in my main team.

Volcarona/ FireBad@ss
Reshiram/ BEWD

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*

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 :/

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.
