    Hey, everyone! I just wanted to throw out another random question, what did you nickname your Pikachu in Pokémon Yellow, and why?

    As a 3-year-old playing this game, I named my Pikachu Bolty, just because of its tail! XD What did you guys name him?

    I had multiple files over the course of time that I owned the game, but I'd usually just keep his name as Pikachu. I might have named one Zap or Shocker or something along those lines, as well as Yellow (since nobody else was named Yellow in the game).

    Named it PIKACHU. Keep in mind this is back when I named my rival ??? because I was asked what the Rival's name was and ??? had appeared onscreen so I thought it was "right"

    At 3, it was just a name. lol


    I think I kept it at Pikachu, mostly out of laziness.

    I actually had a habit of naming my pokemon after the animals they most closely resembled, and at the time I thought Pikachu was a mouse so I named it, simply, Mouse.
