I noticed that whenever I looked through the daycare offspring of my Pokemon, nobody ever named any of them, so I was curious... Do you nickname your Pokemon on here? I always do, and I find it a little sad nobody named them.

This sounds like it was meant for the GPX+ section. General Pokemon is meant for discussing the games.

I nickname Shiny pokemons, special pokemons obtained from friends, unsummonable legendaries (if I dont have one yet) and the ones that are good in Vs. Seeker or Battle tower/subway.

My Electric Knights



I nickname those Pokemon which I'm sure I won't be abandoning within a year. tongue.gif These mostly include shiny mons, nice IV'd mons, favourite Legends and some Novelty mons.

PM me for Social Network add request/Shiny race request. I will answer for sure.

Named my shinies, pokemon I need in Battle Tower/Vs. Seeker, and pokemon which I will need to be on Daycare later. grin.gif

By naming them I feel like my fondness is growing in them, it's hard to do the exchange event with my shiny pokes, but I had to. :")

Hi.



I have pre-planned nicknames for every unique species I obtain, including all 28 Unown. This doesn't always include alternate forms, but sometimes it does.

I nickname my shinies, and the Pokemon I use in the battle tower. I do keep one of every legendary I have, but I'm just not paying as much attention to them bucktooth.gif

Wow. I'd be interested to see that list noes.gif

I nickname a lot of my 'mons: all my shinies, legendaries and novelties. And some others, if I have a reason in my head for it. I describe them too, but I want to go back and redo a lot of those :V

Like most of the people that have replied, I only nickname shinies and Pokemon that I like, and sometimes novelties if I can think of a cute nickname for them~

My Favorites



I usually nickname Pokemon when I'm not on a hatching spree. Though I almost always name the ones I have in my party. But sometimes I try to give a name from on the tip of my hat. Like naming my Manaphy.... Marine.

Say has anyone else had trouble coming up with (good) names at the start? confused.gif

My shinies, legendaries, battlers, and "Original Six" (the first six Pokemon I got, ever) have nicknames, but sometimes I'll nickname a Pokemon if it's special to me for some reason, or just because I feel like it.

Random 'mons I like:



I nickname some of them [ex. Deadpool the Yveltal, Orion the shiny Togekiss], at least. Really, whether I nickname a Pokémon or not depends on my current mood + if I can think of a good name for a 'Mon.

I do name my Pokemon every so often, particularly noteworthy Pokemon. Examples include my first Pokemon on the site, novelties, and Shiny Pokemon (if I ever find any).

I always put a name on a shiny pokemon, always trying to mimic the pokemon's real name, like a female Tyranitar and call her Tanya, just an example, I like this way haha konata.gif

I'm always surprised to hear when people say they don't nickname their pokemon. Like others mentioned here, I nickname them if I'm attached to them at all, though sometimes it takes me a while to come up with a good name.
