Yancy (Japanese: ルリ Ruri), otherwise known under the screen name Nancy (Japanese: ルッコ Rukko), is a character that appears in Black 2 and White 2 if the player's gender is male. She is the female counterpart to Curtis.

In the games

Yancy is first encountered after the male player picks up the Dropped Item (Xtransceiver) in Nimbasa City. Upon obtaining the item, Yancy calls it and identifies herself as the owner of the lost Xtransceiver. However she is busy at work and is unable to retrieve it at the time, so she asks the male player to hold onto it until she is free from work.

Yancy will call her Xtransceiver when the male player is in specific locations around Unova. Yancy will slowly learn about the player through her initial nine calls. What she learns about him is based on what the player answered in the Passerby Analytics HQ surveys in Castelia City. At the tenth call, Yancy would inform the player that she is finally free from work and would like to retrieve her Xtransceiver back in Nimbasa City. It is here that Yancy meets the male player for the first time as her initial calls were audio only so neither knew what each other looked like. She gratefully takes her Xtransceiver back and exchanges numbers with the male player as she wishes to talk to him more.

After returning her Xtransceiver, the male player can call Yancy occasionally as long as they are anywhere in the 15 areas that she calls the male player initially and as long as she is available. Sometimes, the male player can even call multiple times while in the same area. Her eleventh through nineteenth calls, Yancy tells the male player more about herself. Calls twenty through twenty-nine, Yancy will ask the male player for advice or opinions about things. After the thirtieth call, Yancy will ask the player to ride at the Rondez-View Ferris Wheel with her. After the fiftieth call and after entering the Hall of Fame, the player can review Yancy's occupation and trade Pokémon with her. Pokémon traded from her have Hidden Abilities, are at level 50, and have no predetermined nature, gender, or individual values. It is possible to receive multiples of the same species.

Yancy, as Nancy, appears in various television shows as a celebrity idol.

Quotes

Initial call

"Um… hello?
"Yes. That's right. I'm the owner of that Xtransceiver. I'm using an old Xtransceiver right now, so it's audio only. Sorry."
"Thank you for finding it. Truth is, I want to come pick it up right away, but… Right now I'm very busy with work, and I'm not in a place where I can stop and come get it. If you don't mind, could you hang on to it for a little bit?"
"Really? You don't mind? Thank you so much. My name's Na… Er… sorry… Yancy. And you are?"
"<Player>? OK. When work calms down, I'll come pick it up, so please take care of it for me! Also… I'm sure you'll want to keep in touch until I can pick up my Xtransceiver. So I'll call your Xtransceiver often. Bye, then. Thanks again."

First Call

"Hi… Is this <player>? Wow, so you're a boy, <player>? It's a little annoying that we can't see each other, right? Just so you know… I'm a girl. Tee hee. Oops! My colleague is calling me. I have to get back to work! Talk to you again. Good-bye."

Nimbasa City

"No! I'm not who you think!"
"What? You're <player>? I'm so sorry! I thought you were someone else. Well, uh...It's nice to meet you. I'm Yancy! You were different than I imagined, so I was a little surprised. Ah ha ha..."
"I suppose so! We can just talk normally! Hee hee! <Xtransceiver returned to her>. Thank you, <player>. I'm sorry I couldn't find the time to pick it up earlier. But I really enjoyed talking with you, so maybe I was a little lucky! Ah ha ha..."
"Um... If you don't mind can I still call you sometime? Phew. I was really scared you might say no. <Yancy's Reregistered in Xtranceiver>. Can I ask you one more thing? I called you on the Xtranceiver too often, and Ma... I mean one of my coworkers... Got really mad at me... So, <player>, could you call me?"
"What? Really? Thanks... <Player>, you're really nice. Hee hee..."
"I'm usually at work, and sometimes I have trouble picking up a signal... But I'd like it if you check your Xtranceiver often and give me a call... Ah ha ha! Well, I'll be heading home! Good-bye, <player>!"

Whenever the male player calls her

"Ah, <player>! Yeah I can talk right now. You know..."

Eleventh Call

"Thank you for the other day! I was surprised you were my age! I was guessing you would be older by than me from your voice. It made me a little nervous on the Xtransceiver, you know?

Twelfth Call

"My hobby is cooking. When I hear about good food, I go and check it out for myself."
"Lately the Casteliacones in Castelia City are getting quite popular, so I’ve been wanting to try one..."

"Think I should get back to work now. Talk to you later, <player>. Bye!"

Fourteenth Call

"I love music. I listen to pop often, I think. Listening to music makes you smile, doesn’t it?"

"Think I should get back to work now. Talk to you later, <player>. Bye!"

"Think I should get back to work now. Talk to you later, <player>. Bye!"

"I usually go for a walk on my days off. Walking at my own pace, seeing different things alone is a good change of pace."

"Think I should get back to work now. Talk to you later, <player>. Bye!"

"Um...I hope you can help me with this."
" Have you seen what they call Dark Tall Grass?"

"Thanks, <player>. Talk to you later."

Twenty-Second Call

"Um...I hope you can help me with this."
"I want to give my sister a Pokémon."

"I’ll go catch one with my sister soon!"
"Thanks, <player>. Talk to you later."

Twenty-Eighth Call

"Hey, you are making me blush!"
"Thanks, <player>. Talk to you later."

Twenty-Ninth Call

"Umm...I hope you can help me with this. "
"I have this person who’s really good at what we do at our workplace, and I can’t help but feel so competitive."
"Yeah! I feel better talking to you, <player>. I guess it’s not him but my own self that I must overcome. "
"Thanks, <player>. Talk to you later."

Thirtieth Call

"Er...Umm...I am off today, so can we meet somewhere? You’ve been helping me a lot recently, so I’d love to thank you face-to-face!"

Nimbasa City (after the Thirtieth Call)

"Oh, <player>! You came! I’m so glad."
"What? N-no! I haven’t been waiting. I just got here a minute ago. A ha ha! Hey if you don’t mind, do you want to ride the Ferris wheel? Nimbasa City’s Ferris wheel is really famous for having a beautiful view."
"Really? You don’t mind? Great! I’ve been wanting to ride this Ferris wheel for a long time! But...Only two people can ride it, so I’ve held out this whole time! I’m so happy, I’m all worked up! Let’s hurry up and ride, <player>!"
"Ah. Um...I’m a little nervous for some reason."
"It’s strange...Talking with you makes me feel so happy..."
"That’s why I wanted to meet you in person...and say thank you."
"...A ha ha! I’m so thankful for everything you’ve done for me. I feel like I can work so hard at this job thanks to you, <player>. I’d like it if we could keep talking from time to time..."
"Okay. I’m going to get going...Today was a lot of fun! See you later, <player>!"

In calls 31-50, Yancy could say any of a variety of things.

"Yep! I think I can make it. How about meeting up at the Ferris wheel in Nimbasa City? I’m sooo looking forward to it, <player>! See you later."

Nimbasa City (after calling to meet)

"Oh, <player>! A ha ha! I couldn’t wait, so I hurried here. I’m happy to see you! Hey, would you like to ride the Ferris wheel with me? I’ve taken a shine to it."
"Really? That’s great! Why did I get so excited all of the sudden? Let’s hurry and ride, <player>!"
"I never get tired of this view"
"Is it because I’m with you?"
"Aww...It’s over already..."

Yes: "Thank you! <Pokémon> also looks happy!"
No: "Oh. That’s too bad. If we ever have another opportunity let’s trade Pokémon, OK?"
"Thanks for coming today. I was really happy you invited me. Being with you again has given me a lot of energy! A ha ha! Now I have energy for work! If you don’t mind, I’d like it if you invite me again! Well I’d better get going! See you, <player>!"


Trivia

  • Starting with the thirtieth call, Yancy's sprite will begin to blush when talking on the Xtransceiver, implying she has developed feelings for the male player, just like her male counterpart, Curtis, has for the female player.
  • Yancy will occasionally talk about specific locations from other regions, such as Mt. Moon.
