If you decline the first opportunity they give you, you don't get another chance, so be prepared and make it count.

You can't take it to the nickname rater?

He won't let you change it, it's OT is "HOME" instead of yourself, and despite normally being able to give a nickname to anything that doesn't have one (even traded Pokemon), there's apparently something else interfering with that too.

Looking around for other examples, it's possible that it might be considered as coming from a foreign region, so maybe players in another country like Japan might be able to nickname it, but definitely not America it seems.

Interesting. Thanks for the info. I never give them nicknames but I'm sure that's valuable for others.

It's because of the fateful encounter flag. You still can't nickname event Pokémon even just once unless you have their exact trainer name and ID number.
