Cool Pokémon Names and Nicknames for Your Pet Dog

Do you love your dog? Do you love Pokémon? You're in luck! Here is a list of the 150 original Pokémon, their "species," traits, and cute nicknames to use for your beloved canine.

How to Pick a Name

Think about your puppy or dog's traits and ask yourself the following:

  • What is my dog's personality? Are they brave or shy? Strong or gentle?
  • What does he or she look like? Are they fluffy and cute, or muscular and tough? Boy or girl?
  • What is my personality? Do I like the cute Pokémon or the ominous type?

Have fun selecting from these easy-to-remember nicknames. Ivysaur can be "Ivy," and Caterpie can be "Caty" or "Katy." Feel free to get creative, and share your suggestions below!
