Iron Crown nicknames

a tall, metallic, bipedal dinosaur-like Pokémon with an angular, cuboid body bent at its chest and hips

Iron Crown is a dual-type Steel/Psychic Pokémon, introduced in Generation 9 as a “futuristic relative of Cobalion”.

Let’s have a look at its origins and some of my suggested nicknames.


Iron Crown is a metallic, quadruped Pokémon with body similar to Cobalion. Its body is mainly turquoise but its underside is silver and its horns are a mix of turquoise and yellow. It has light turquoise V-shaped cuffs on its four legs, and yellow-wing like appendages on either side of its body. Given its name and stature, it has a regal posture.

As it is based on Cobalion, it takes inspiration from animals like antelopes and goats, or any member of the bovid family (including gazelles and impalas).


My methodology for nicknames is as follows:

  • I rank nicknames by lettered tiers: S, A, B, C, and D. S is the best and D is the worst.
  • I may use generative AI for inspiration. I’ll always mark these nicknames with an asterisk (*) but they’ll always be amended where necessary
  • I’ll usually list my inspiration for a nickname so you know where they came from

With all that said, let’s look at those Annihilape nicknames!
