    The Name Rater: Share Your Pokémon's Nickname!

    Welcome!
    This is the Name Rater thread, where you can share your pokémons' nicknames and judge everyone else's however you see fit.
    This idea was taken from PKMN.net, which is known for its merciless name rater.

    The Rules:

    1. As in the games, Nicknames may be up to twelve characters long.

    2. When submitting an entry, start with the species name. Your nickname comes next. Leading with a sprite or stat screen image of the Pokémon in question is encouraged, but not required.

    3. You are encouraged to write a short blurb that states your reasoning behind why you gave it the name.

    4. There are are no restrictions on what nickname you leave. It can be a clever name you came up with for a beloved teammate, or it can be something shamelessly weird you gave something you caught as a joke. Anything goes. Just be aware that a particularly unsuitable nickname may be subject to mild ridicule.

    5. Before submitting any nicknames of your own, you must first review the nicknames of the person who posted before you. The review doesn't have to be in-depth; just say what you think of it, whether or not you like it and why. Keeping it brief is encouraged. I know this is the 7th, but try to keep it respectful. However, I have no qualms about flaming a highly trollish nickname. i.e. If someone gives the name 'COFFEE!!!!!!' to a Wailord with the same thing as a description but with a hundred exclamation points, tearing it to pieces is not frowned upon but is actually encouraged. And yes, I've seen that done on another website.

    6. Please limit yourself to a maximum of three submissions at a time. The next person has a submission of their own, and three is already a lot of stuff to review, even if they're short.

    And that is everything. Have fun.

    Note: this is a thread for specific names. Making a general statement leaves others with very little to work with.
    Also, if no specific name has been listed in the post before yours, you don't have to rate anything.

    I played every single Pokémon from Blue and Red to X and Y and never gave a single Pokémon a nickname, rate me.

    During my first pkmn game I didn't know what a nickname was so I just wrote Aaa.
    After figuring out it named my Pokemon I did the same thing as mcjon.
    Though abandoned, forgotten, and scorned as out-of-date dolls, they continue to carry out their mission, unchanged from the time they were designed.
    Machines do not lose their worth when a newer model appears.
    Their worth (life) ends when humans can no longer bear that purity.

    Any Pokémon with a gust attack should always be named butt.

    I tend to give my pokemon some generic names so they aren’t that impressive.
    I suppose one of them that I actually like is the one I gave to my Decidueye

    I named him Owltlaw because I had the occasion to make a pun that I am still proud of.

    Mordred is finally home.

    Blessed is my luck.

    I am at peace.

    Hmmm... Owltlaw... I'm not so sure that works. I mean, it's close, but it doesn't exactly roll off the tongue.

    Zebstrika is not an acceptible name for anything, so I named my first Blitzle Electricorn (because Ordine the Electric Unicorn was 15 characters too long) and my second one, I renamed after evolving.
    I called it Zapidash. That is a good Pokepun.

    Zapidash, I know its a pokepun but zap and dash sounds overkill

    I named my Wishiwashi, Kyogre
    And Alolan Muk, Porridge
    I think I'm ready to be a parent

    I never named any of my Pokemon because I have a bitch of a time remembering names to begin with, why the fuck would I throw in a nickname on top of a weird-ass name too, while I'm at it.
    McJon01: We all know that the real reason Archer would lose to Rider is because the events of his own Holy Grail War left him with a particular weakness toward "older sister" types.

    All of you who don't nickname your Pokémon: thank you for making the fact that you are no-skill scrubs in this game public before we further engage in conversation.

    And anyone who makes this joke is either too young to be here or too old to be wasting their time on the Internet when they have responsibilities to attend to.

    This nickname is only acceptable if you are a speedrunner. Please go speedrun towards your fictional 2-d waifu's arms and cease your Internet existence.

    Finally someone with a modicum of taste. If only you knew how to spell "Ghastly" I'd even respect you.

    Nah. Minors can't be legally processed, after all.

    I dare you to call out that name without biting your tongue. Or without having the Pokémon Social Services called upon you because that is an awful name.

    No. That is Sonichu's long lost cousin.

    I don't think you are. Although I appreciate the reference with Wishiwashi's nickname, Porridge is not meant to look like that unless you've ingested heavy amounts of LSD before lunch, nor be poisonous to the touch. Please do not have children until your porridge doesn't look like a 70s homage video.

    Are… are you actually the Name Rater from PKMN.net?
    Because you just replicated the style flawlessly!

    Zoroark. Kotaro. I named it this because Fuuma Kotaro in Conquest has one as his Perfect Link Partner, and Zoroark does seem to be a reference to the Fuuma Clan.

    Greninja. Saizo/Kunoichi depending on the gender. Saizo because Saizo Kirigakure and his whole frog thing, and Kunoichi for obvious reasons.

    Gallade. Gallahad. It just makes sense on so many levels.

    Infernape. Hanuman. Infernape is a Hanuman/Wukong reference.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Lucario. Aaron. Named after the anime aura guardian Sir Aaron.

    Not a Pokemon nickname but I just recently started an X egglocke with the female protag and upon discussing it with Shauna, we settled on my nickname as "BadbehtchXyX"

    I never nicknamed any of my Pokemon, but when I was in the army I knew a guy who was playing Emerald and nicknamed every single Pokemon he caught after officers and NCO's in camp. I distinctly remember the Lickitung named after a well-known bootlicker and that time he exclaimed in front of everyone "Fuck, [battalion commander] sucks dick!"(In his defense, [Battalion Commander] was a Zapdos with the shitty default moveset).

    You were in the army? Wow.

    Also, how did [Battalion Commander] the person react to that outburst?

    I was, but nothing fancy, just doing required service as a grunt.
    And when I said "in front of everyone" I should clarify that this was in the barracks, well outside the earshot of officers (we technically weren't allowed entertainment devices or camera-enabled smartphones, though nobody followed that latter rule). It did get a bunch of snorts and chuckles from the ones not in the know, as well as a suggestion to "go tell him that yourself".
