    As you might have guessed from my avatar, I am both a Transformers fan and a Pokemon fan. I have even named some of my Pokemon in the games after Transformers.

    Gold:
    Seaspray-male Feraligatr
    Prowl-male Umbreon (this was before he evolved)
    Botanica-female Weepinbell

    Emerald:
    Starscream-male Swellow (because he has the same colors as G1 Screamer)
    Elita-One-female Skarmory (thought it was a perfect name for a female Steel type)
    Hot Shot-male Torchic

    Diamond:
    Firestar-female Rapidash

    XD: Gale of Darkness:
    Ravage-male Umbreon


    And if I ever catch a Latias I'll most likley name her Arcee.

    I'm curious, has any one else here ever givin a Transformer name to a Pokemon?

    In my most recent file on Crystal, I had decided that EVERY Pokemon I caught would have a Transformer name (my character was called Optimus, and my rival was Megatrn...damn character limit) - and I planned to catch all that I could. This led to some rather obscure names being used e.g. Apollo (a Japan-exclusive Minicon!) for my Bellsprout because they were both brown, green and yellow.

    I used Beast Wars Predacon names in my old Yellow file.

    I left Pikachu's name alone.
    -Charizard was Megatron (because Charizard is very dragon-like and Megatron turned into a dragon).
    -Butterfree was Waspinator (both bugs, and I didn't use Beedrill)
    -Venasaur was Tarantulas ('cause they can both be.. poisonous.. >_>)
    -Pidgeot was Terrorsaur (because they both could fly)
    -And Blastoise was Scorponok (by due process of elimination :p  )

    Surprisingly, yes... I did that with my Pokemon Sapphire game, naming all my Pokemon after Transformers. At least, names that don't break the limit on the letters for character names.

    I once had a Nidoking and a Crobat that I named Galvatron and Cyclonus respectfully, I also recall having an Aggron called Megatron

    Also fun fact, there's a third Generation move named after Shockwave XD

    I definitely have, but I can't remember which ones I gave nicknames to and, since my DS is broken, I can't check. I can remember that my Infernape is named Primal.

    So far Ive done...

    - Rhyperior - Iron Hide
    - Infernape - Hot Rod
    I have a few, but I havent played my games in a few months.

    I wanna do a Rumble Frenzy combo...

    Rumble being Nidoking w/Earthquake, and Frenzy I have no idea at the moment who I wanted...

    I was trying to match the Pokemons attack strategy/colors with the Pokemon.

    Hehe yeah true XD

    Everytime Mira had her Kadabra out in Diamond/Pearl/Platinum and it used that move I always pictured Kadabra whipping out Shockwave in gun-mode from sub-space and blasting a Zubat or Bronzor :p

    Ditto - I named my Blastoise 'Snaptrap'. Other Pokemon I've given Transformer names are my Scyther ('Blades'), Sableye ('Vorath'), Salamence ('Skyquake') and Latias ('Lightspeed').
