I did a post quite a while back about the nicknames I gave to my 100% IV Pokemon in Pokemon Go. Think of this one as a sequel! I have no post ideas right now except this, and more 100% IV Pokemon to go through! Currently, I have 60 100% IV Pokemon in Pokemon Go, including the ones I gave nicknames to before.
I did make some changes, and these will be listed below:
Mr. Mime – ‘NoReason’ – originally called ‘Master Mime’, I changed the name of this one because of the Galarian version obtaining the evolution of Mr. Rime. I decided to nickname my Kantonian form after the phrase ‘no rhyme, no reason’, as a play on words.
Arbok – ‘SolidSnake’ – originally called ‘Slithers’, I remembered the existence of Solid Snake from the Metal Gear Solid games. It’s a cheap cop-out, but it works.
Gardevoir – ‘Synchronice’ – originally called ‘Rats’ pre-evolution, my nickname mechanic doesn’t allow for Synchronoice as a nickname, hence the name I’ve given it, as it has the move Synchronoise.
Linoone – ‘Notstagoon’ – originally called ‘Linooooo’ because I wasn’t after it, this is another Pokemon with a Galarian form that I have the Hoenn form of. And because this one can’t evolve into Obstagoon, it’s been given this appropriate nickname instead.
Alolan Raichu – ‘Hawaii’ – Alolan Raichu was a Lucky Trade randomly after trading Connor a spare Unown. It became my 50th 100% IV Pokemon, and because it’s an Alolan form, I decided to pay homage to the show Hawaii Five-O.
Alolan Ninetales – ‘Snowy’– I got a female Alolan Vulpix that came out with 100% IVs, so I named it after Lillie’s Vulpix in the anime.
Lopunny – ‘Lola Bunny’ – I basically named this Lopunny after another heavily sexualised cartoon rabbit.
Scizor – ‘Mantis’ – I got the idea from the wargame and military sci-fi franchise BattleTech. There is a Light Mech called the Mantis, and that’s how I came up with the nickname.
Yanmega – ‘Sparx’ – I named this one after the dragonfly companion in the Spyro series. I’d recently played through the Reignited Trilogy when I got this Pokemon, and it was just too fitting at the time.
Porygon2 – ‘GORocket’ – This Pokemon was 93% as a Shadow Porygon, and purified it to 100%. It’s currently my only perfect Purified Pokemon, and I’m saving it for a (hopefully) future Porygon Community Day, so it can evolve into a Porygon-Z.
Tentacruel – ‘Ten Tickles‘ – I got this during the Supereffective Week through a Research reward, and it was fitting to name it after the shiny Tentacool I got in Let’s Go.
Dewott – ‘Oshikuru’ – Because this evolves into a Samurai, and because of Oshawott’s name, I wanted to pay homage to that one Two and a Half Men episode, where Charlie Sheen was penning the opening theme.
Lopunny – ‘Codpiece’ – This has nothing to do with the Pokemon. The night I caught this, we’d played the one D&D session where we tried to spread the word of the Cult of the Codpiece before I got the TPK due to some dud rolls. To honour the fun we had, I named my Lopunny ‘Codpiece’.
Hippowdon – ‘Gaara‘ – This was kind of a no-brainer for me. I do miss the old Hippowdon sprite where it was pouring sand. I still named him after Gaara, who is my favourite character in the Naruto series, and probably my favourite anime character overall.
Roserade – ‘Rosa‘ – This is my second 100% IV Roserade, and I named it as I did because it came from an egg that a friend sent over from Spain. The feminine name is annoying me somewhat, considering the Roserade is male, but I’ll make it work.
