I named myself Ico because it´s my nickname (long story)
Rival: Steve for no particular reason, i just like the name.
Snivy my starter: Python (obvious why)
Umbreon: Nyx (the Greek goddess of the night.) also my favorite pokemon and always in my party.
I named myself Gray, because my White character is called White, and I didn't want to call this guy "White 2". Since everyone was expecting Gray, I thought it was a nice way to go.
I named my Rival 'Hugh', because for once I actually like the Rival's default name!
My Pokémon in White 2 are all nicknamed depending on their gender. So, males end with a 'y', females end with an 'a'.
Apharos: Amphy (obvious reference, though it was unintentional)
I'm working on an album of Pokémon-inspired music. Check out the Soundcloud link if you're interested!
