I finally hatched an Omanyte from a 10km egg this week, and I think Omanyte takes my Unexpectedly Adorable Pokemon award. Didn’t think it’d be that charming, with its happily waving tentacles. I’ve named mine Wiggles.
Other nicknames I’m a little too enamoured of:
Buzz Aldrin and Susan B Anthony for my Beedrills (well Szn B Antony to fit in the character limit)
Kale, Mesclun and Escarole for my Bulbasaur/Ivysaur family
GoodFeather for my Pidgeot (after the Animaniacs’ pigeon parody of the Godfather)
Omlette, Crepe and Frittata for my Exeggcutes and Exeggcutors
and Buscemi for my Magmar (apologies to Steve, but dang, the Magmar kinda looks like him)
Anyone else have nicknames they’re gleefully proud of?
