Cool Pokémon Names and Nicknames for Your Pet Cat

Are you a cat lover? Do you love Pokémon? Would you love to name your cat after one of the characters? Lucky for you, here is a list of the 150 original Pokémon, their "species," characteristics, and matching nicknames to call your feline friend.

How to Pick a Name for Your Cat

Think about your kitten or cat's physical traits and personality. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • How does my cat behave? Bold? Funny? Clumsy? Athletic?
  • What does he or she look like? Soft and cuddly? Striped and wild? Boy or girl?
  • What is my personality like? Do I like the adorable Pokémon or the serious characters?

For every character name, there is a matching nickname. Ivysaur can be "Ivy," and Caterpie can be "Cutiepie." Feel free to get creative. Share your cat's name in the comments below!
