Oh man I love nicknaming my Pokémon. For the sake of people's sanity though, I'm not listing all of my 2934723782362 teams. XD;

Carla -- Raichu -- I..I have no idea, really..
Luna -- Clefable -- None other than the moon, of course. Clefable practically worship the moon. Lol.
Dandilion -- Meganium -- If you have no idea what a dandilion is, then it's a weed/plant thing.
Ivan -- Mawile -- Again, I have no idea. XD;
Ace -- *Flygon* -- I always thought Ace was a good name for a Flygon.. mainly because of 'Aerial Ace'.
Xei -- *Weavile* -- Name for my Medicham in Emerald. Humanshape-ish Pokémon ftw.
Aster -- *Kirlia* -- Aster's a flower. Flower-y names fit for the Ralts family. :p
Tanaka -- Drifblim -- Means 'wind' in Japanese or something. I don't remember.
Calista -- Lopunny -- Beauty, I think?
Vafara -- Nidoqueen -- I think Vafara's beauty too..

Woohoo. 3 shinies on one team! (A-Aster being the only one I got myself. I got him from an egg, but he doesn't have any egg moves. Bawww.)

I tend to watch TV while mindlessly biking up and down to hatch eggs, so some of my hatchers have interesting names: Homer, Lisa and Maggie from the Simpsons (Ponytas) and Hussey, Roy, Haydo, Clarkie, Murali and Punter from watching the cricket (Skorupis).

Mostly I give my Pokemon random names like Bub or Slapper.

In my party at the moment I have Tiff the Staraptor, Pipi the Empoleon, Doof Doof the Gyarados (named for a loud car driving past at the time), Bam! the Graveler, Slob the Gloom, and one of my two mystery Tentacool eggs.

Here are some examples of the kind of nicknames I give my Pokemon:

Doubleduce/Ambipom (M)- So called because he can pull the famous "Double Duce" move off. Homestar Runner reference.
Artpup/Smeargle (F)- I had a female Smeargle on Crystal named Artpup, so this was for memories' sake.
Stubby/Bibarel (F)- Named after Bidoof's rumored English name.
Hei Hei/Crawdaunt (M)- named for the sounds Corphish makes in the Japanese version.
Noodles/Tangrowth (M)-meh, I was hungry at the time...
Fyrus/Heatran (M, Shiny)- Bet you can't guess what my favorite console video game is...

Ok, now here are the nicknames of my main party:

Rockbottom/Torterra (M)- Named after a tortoise character in a Redwall book.
Warbeak/Staraptor (F)- named after the sparrow queen in Redwall.
Blosso/Roserade (M)- Short for "Blossom", because my Roserade is a guy...
Fingal/Floatzel (M)- Named after an otter character from the Mistmantle Chronicles
Koruki/Luxray (F)- This is actually not based on anything. This name is completely original.
Infernape (M)- Is only named Infernape because I got him through the GTS...

I love nicknames, they're fun => I'll list some of mine too...

First my Diamond in-game team. Then some random ones.

Empoleon, female- Peppermint. Cause minty things make me think of winter, which makes me think of penguins. A friend suggested the name though.
Staraptor, male- Hawke.
Bibarel, female- Dora.
Luxray, female- Lea.
Roserade, male- Romeo.
Rapidash, female- Solei. Soleil is French for sun, I just dropped the silent l.

Salamence, male- Bagel. It was cute when he was a Bagon, anyway. Which lasted an entire level. Lol.
Fearow, female- Fearless.
Dustox, male- Stringer. Named because of String Shot.
Sceptile, male- Trent.
Unown (b)- Birdie, cause it kinda looks like a bird.
Lanturn, female- Alannah.
Skuntank, female- Roma. As in aroma.
Vibrava, male- Pride. He's an antlion Pokemon, and lions live in prides.
Pikachu, female- Rabbit. That's what I thought Pikachu was the first time I saw it. In the same vein, I have a male Raichu named Hare.
Cacnea, female- Stabrina. Stab + Sabrina.
Tentacruel, female- Izumi. Because the name Tentacruel makes me think of the Digimon Tentomon, partner of Izzy, or Koushiro Izumi. I had a male in Silver named Koushiro, so I named her in his honor.
Vespiquen- Cornflake. I let my brother name her for me, lol.
Regigigas- Giggles. I'm one of those weirdos who talks to their games =p and while I was trying to catch him I got tired of calling him Regigigas and called him Giggles instead. It's pretty funny, cause he's serious natured. XD He's the only legendary I've ever named.
Porygon- Engrish
Linoone, female- Nuki. Short for tanuki.
Armaldo, male- Roth. Sounded kinda like Anorith.
Armaldo, female- Rita. Named for the same reason.
Breloom, female- Shorah
Volbeat and Illumise- John and Yoko. Named for John Lennon and Yoko Ono.
Togekiss, male- Toki. I've always named my Togepis that.
Spinda, female- Ugly Betty. The placement of her spots isn't terribly attractive.
Spinda, male- Baldwin. He only has one spot on his cheek, so he looks kinda bald.
Lucario, male- Mario
Omastar, female- Merri
Torterra, male- Nettle
Beedrill, male- McFly
Sneasel, male- Laundry. Kinda stupid inside joke.
Kricketune, male- Mozart
Skarmory, female- Gwen. Named after a friend.
Lumineon, female- Rave
Masquerain, female- Maple
Nosepass, female- Pasha
Jynx- Kissu
Electabuzz, female- Batterie
Lopunny, male- Bartie
Nuzleaf, female- Nutella
Rampardos, female- Pedra
Skitty, male- Alfie
Duskull, female- Kuli
Leafeon, male- Lettuce
Glaceon, female- Sno Cone
Magmar, female- Momma. Cause I use her to hatch eggs.
Venusaur, female- Fleur
Toxicroak, female- Dart
Cacturne, female- Oasis
Infernape, female- Paprika
Corphish, female- Clippy
Volbeat (x3)- Nooj, Proot and Beatbox. Nooj is random, Proot cause that's what Volbeat's cry sounds like, sorta... And Beatbox should be obvious enough.
Shiny Absol, male- Lutely. Cause I'm an idiot.
Shiny Luxio, male- Courage
Shiny Shedinja- Angelo
Shiny Kadabra, female- Deborah.
Shiny Noctowl, female- Toshi. Not too hard to figure out.
Shiny Lickilicky, male- Berto
Shiny Zigzagoon, female- Kumquat
Shiny Geodude, female- Goldirocks. Like Goldilocks except she's a golden rock, lol.
Shiny Shinx, female- Braverie. To go with Courage =p

Oh, and a couple from my current Sapphire game.

Grovyle, female- Kimiko. Got the name from Xiaolin Showdown, used cause it sounded similar to Kimori.
Azumarill, female- Traci. Even more obvious than Toshi the Noctowl.

Some new names:

"phaseSHIFT" - Hitmonchan (WoW Imp spell)
"Azualt" - Hitmonlee (Liked the sound of it)
"Pudding!" - Hitmontop (Puddin')
"Walrus!" - Tyrogue (My third favorite animal)
"Fluffums" - Arcanine (My fluffier dog's nickname)
"F**klax" - Snorlax (My immediate apologies for language, but I was expecting a Munchlax after 10,000 steps)
"Joegotthis" - Kangaskhan
The story with Joegotthis involves the Safari Zone and a bit of frustration. I was seeking to catch a Kangaskhan in the Pastoria City Safari Zone, to no avail (only one showed up, and it ran away rather quickly). Finally, I thought to switch over to LeafGreen and head over to Fuschia. Several Kangaskhans appeared, but I was failing to capture a single one. In the middle of the "battle" with my fifth Kangaskhan or so, my boyfriend Joseph yanked my DS out of my hands and pressed A to throw the Safari Ball.. and 1, 2, 3 twitches.. it was caught.

"Midterms" - Kabuto
After my Food Survey Midterm, I started playing Pokemon behind my notebook. I found a Dome Fossil while underground, and had it resurrected or whatever.
