Re: Pokemon Nicknames! What have you named your team and what meanings do the names h

MAIN TEAM:
Typhlosion - Tzekel-Kan, the villain in The Road to El Dorado
Arbok - Megumi, a character in 'The World Ends With You' whose Noise form is a cobra
Crobat - Misery, from my character team
Shiny Gyarados - Fujimoto, after Ponyo's father in Ponyo On A Cliff By The Sea
Ho-Oh - Fawkes, after Dumbledore's pheonix in the Harry Potter series.
Lugia - Jirarudan, Lawrence III's Japanese name
Snorlax - Debu, Japanese for fat
Groudon - Matsubusa, Maxie's Japanese Name
Kyogre - Aogiri, Archie's Japanese Name
Rayquaza - Quazar, a space formation

CHARACTER/ROLEPLAY TEAM
I play Maxie on TwitterDex, so I made a character team for battling. Most Pokemon are named after words beginning with the letter M~
Mightyena - Mei, meaning Alliance
Camerupt - Maelstrom, meaning trouble
Crobat - Misery, meaning sadness
Houndoom - Malevolent, meaning ill-willed
((And my own additions))
Aggron - Malice, meaning hatred
Charizard - Mayhem, meaning disarray
Chansey - Mundify, meaning purify
Once Black/White come out, I'm getting a Zoroark named Mephistopheles. Or as much of that as I can fit on; Mephisto.

I was helping a friend get all the starters from the beginning of his Platinum Version, so this one girl caught two Shinxes to be used as trade fodder... "BitchPlz" and "IFawkYoDad"

Needless to say, I love her.

I don't usually nickname my pokemon but I remember one Ditto that I caught and I named it "Mystique"(I was a bit obsessed with the X-men). But I have to confess that I never used it until I wanted to breed XD
