Stoutland nicknames

Stoutland was introduced in Generation 5 with a Normal typing so there’s plenty of inspiration for nicknames.

Let’s look at some info on Stoutland and suggested nicknames.


Stoutland is a dog Pokémon known for rescuing people in mountains or at sea (like a St. Bernard). It has a brown furred head with cream fur on its forehead and a long moustache coming from under and around its black nose. Its bottom half is a blueish-grey and it has four brown paws with blue paw pads.

Stoutland is the epitome of a good doggo as it is very helpful, intelligent and loyal, and is immensely proud of its impressive moustache. In terms of its name origins, it like comes from the word “stout”, meaning bulky, in reference of its body, and Newfoundland which is a breed of dog which Stoutland shares its traits with.


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
