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 Nate picks up the Dropped Item (Xtransceiver) in Nimbasa City and calls its owner. She would identify herself as Yancy and hastily thanks the protagonist before being called to work by her seniors.

The player can call Yancy every other day at Nimbasa City and receive calls at specific locations around Unova. After exchanging several phone calls, Yancy would note that her work involves traveling to Kanto, Hoenn, and Sinnoh from time to time. The player's relation with Yancy increases as calls are made or received.

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. After the thirtieth call, the player may join Yancy in a ride at the Rondez-View Ferris Wheel. After the fiftieth call, 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. It is possible to receive multiples of the same species.

Yancy appears in the game television shows.

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>? I am off today, so I was thinking I could pick up my Xtransceiver. The one you've been keeping for me... Are you busy, <player>? Really? You aren't? Good. Can we meet at the Ferris wheel in Nimbasa City? I'm looking forward to seeing you there, <player>. 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>!"

Eleventh Call “Ah, <player>! Yeah I can talk right now. You know... 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? I’m kind of relieved that I can relax from now on when we talk. I should get back to work now. Talk to you later, <player>. Bye!”
