Planning on having nicknames?
What are you thinking about nicknaming the pokemon you have the most interest in so far?

Also a thread for sharing good nicknames for new pokemon for those who don't know what to nickname them yet.

Future - What did you nickname your new pokemon?

My favorite show is Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD. When I watched the reveal trailer and saw the titles, I knew instantly which version I had to get. It got even crazier when I saw the leak say what Sobble (my current fav) becomes, which would fit the show perfectly.

I plan on naming everyone I use after characters from the show, and possibly extend that to the larger MCU if I want. I haven’t decided on anything specific, yet.

I usually do a naming theme for my teams, kinda like the characters in Pokemon Adventures. I've been thinking about naming my Pokemon this time around based on this music group I like, and luckily the 4 Pokemon I've chosen for my team so far fit their names and the group's themes perfectly. But I'm going to need to get those last 2 members to see if I end up using that theme and how I'll assign the names.

Currently I don’t have many ideas for nicknames but I have a few ideas kicking around

Grookey- So far I’ve thought of naming it either K. Julien or Mort if it‘s a boy or Qu. Juliana if it‘s a girl but these are just my first ideas and I hope to come up with more.
Scorbunny- Campion after one of my favorite characters from Watership Down. Plus it’s close to champion which is fitting for it and Galar’s competitive streak.
Dreadnaw- I’m either naming it Turtleman or YIYIYEE!!! after the Call of the Wildman show (which often featured the titular character wrangling snapping turtles like Dreadnaw)
Galarian Ponyta- Amalthea after the titular character from “the Last Unicorn” or maybe Molly.
Yamper- The ideas of naming it Hot Dog, Amelia, or Sparky have been bouncing around my head but I’m hoping to come up with something else.

Not a new Pokémon but it’s a Pokémon I’ve been considering having on my team if I choose Grookey;
Ninetales- Rumika (named after James’ fiancée after watching a Fiction and Mythology Explained video on the kitsune and got obsessed with the idea of her having one)

Been thinking about this for a bit, but I don't have any set-in-stone ideas. That doesn't mean I don't have any ideas, I just need more time to think about it. However, this is what I've got so far.

Scorbunny: Heat Guts, Heatblast, Blitz, Napalm
Corviknight: StormSworder, Raynos, Knightmare, Tin Hawk
Yamper: Sparkplug, Baxter (after my family's dachshund), Thundervolt, Zap Ring, Rush
Sirfetch'd: Male: Gilthunder, Howzer, Arthur. Female: Guila, Jericho, Matrona

I only have a couple names decided on so far, and I still have no idea what I want to do for the starters (probably because I'm still not sure if I'm picking Grookey or Sobble). But here is what I do have:

Yamper: Scamp or Scout
Galarian Ponyta: Moon Fairy

I don't usually name my Pokémon, but I can't not name my strawberry-flavored Alcremie "Eton Mess" and my Yamper "PAMPER" (all caps) because I'm lowkey obsessed with Affleck leak.
