I prefer to think of it as ironically hilarious, especially if said gyarados knows "Splash".

I always nickname my Pokemon. :)
I usually give them humane names and sometimes use translated
words based on nature, etc for nicknaming. When I name a genderless Pokemon,
they'll be named after the surname,universal name, etc.

I very rarely not nickname my Pokémon. They are some without nicknames but they will end up renamed if I caught them myself. Pokémon I got in trades mostly don't have nicknames.

I am limited now on names when it comes to rude or seemingly harmless names as most of those names are banned. I tried to call my Froakie Zabuza but it wasn't allowed, it is called Shikamaru.

I used to never nickname my Pokemon, but I've taken to naming them lately. I recently got Pokemon Pearl and EVERY Pokemon has a foreign name except an in-game traded Abra and a random Zubat I forgot to name

I am not that creative. Never named my Pokémon. Do like the original names more then enough.

I don't usually nickname my Pokémon, except if they are special (like my lvl.97 Dewott in Y) or during Nuzlockes even if they are lame jokes or not original ^^'
So, my answer is sometimes :) (Smile)

When I played Pokemon Gold, I nicknamed my Amphoros "Ramsay". Yeah... I only nicknamed Pokemon when I felt like it.

As of X and Y, I've nicknamed every one of the Pokémon even considered for my team. They're all Japanese names that correspond to the kind of Pokémon it is. owo

But I've always liked coming up with nicknames for them, they just didn't used to be very good or original ones, haha.

Wow. I usually make names based somehow off that Pokemon's original name, only it's English. Like naming a Gyarados a Giradi.
