Everyone always says this type of shit, but it's been shown on many, many occasions that it is perfectly acceptable to not nickname your Pokemon in the Pokemon universes.
>>
>>20530910
I think it's weirder nicknaming your pokemon that not in the pokemon universe

holy shit you guys are so autistic

It's like you don't even know about giving yourself a name for people who speak languages that aren't Latin-derived.

I nickname all pokemon I want to wondertrade by their first evolution name. When people level them up, they still have their first evolution name. E.g. a gardevoir named Ralts or a Blastoise named Squirtle.

What is Dedenne
>>
>>20531374
That's a mouse
>>
>>20531374
Dedenne is a round, small, orange mouse-like Pokémon, whose whiskers are in shape of antennas, which it uses to communicate with far-off allies. It has orange pouches on its cheeks that charge electricity, and its belly is a pale yellow. It has round black ears with light yellow insides, and a long black tail with a star-like tip. It has an aradicular tooth that can be seen on its upper jaw. Its tail can absorb electricity from power plants or house outlets. It can then fire electricity from its whiskers.

>>20535427
It's closer to a chinchilla with a tail like that. I know there's already Minccino but still.
>>
>>20530867


OP,
post more of cute girl instead of nickname banter.

pokemon don't care what you call them,
or even how you treat them look at the rockets


they act how they are trained to behave.
I nickname them all. some of the US region names are terrible

SpArKii was the first pokemon I encountered with pokeballs in diamond, and he carried my team from route 202 to the elite 4 and beyond. You just can't replace that kind of thing.

Delicious Bailey Jay

I play games in english but is not my first language and I still have problems with my short vocabulary, so coming up with clever wordplays and puns is a little difficult for me.

Normally if a pokemon's species has a name I really like I let them keep it, and then some other times I name some of my pokemon. They're simple and bad names but I can't do better.
>>
>>20539751

More like disgusting balding bailey jay amirite?

Considering Wailord is lighter than air, I'm sure my mother would be delighted to receive such a compliment
>>
>>20540995
>lighter
It's less dense than air, Anon. One molecule of Wailord is probably not lighter than one molecule of air, depending on which Wailord molecule you choose.
>>
I'm not going to call something I consider my companion [animal]

Air does have different types of molecules, idiot!
