During my time in the Game Corner room on Pokémon Showdown!, I created a new game named ‘Nickgames’. In this game the host would !dt [Pokémon] and all the participants would give said Pokémon a fitting nickname. The person with the funniest, cleverest or just best nickname would win.
I created this game for fun, not knowing it would be the most popular game at that time.
Now recently I have seen a lot of people ask for a Name rater room on Showdown and I'd like to help out with that. Though I do not have the power to create a room, I can at least make a thread on Smogon that lists all Pokémon and a few good, funny, clever or just fitting nicknames for it!
The idea of this thread is that people that want to nickname their Pokémon, but can't come up with a decent nickname for it, can refer to this thread for inspiration or take the nicknames they like.
If you want to submit a nickname yourself, write a comment on this thread with the actual Pokémon,the nickname and a brief explanation as to why you picked this name. Popular / good nicknames will be added to the original post!
I am not actually going to rate your nicknames. If I like them, they will be added to the list. If I do not like them I will not add them. It's that simple.
I apologize for having to multi-post in this thread. Sadly I am not able to fit all the text into one or two posts. I will have to separate the Pokémon generations per post. This thread will be a redo of the previous one I made which I had to abandon due to me hitting the character limit per post and it did not allow me to edit it.
Let's get into it!
