If you were looking for the character from Black 2 and White 2 whose screen name is Nancy, see Yancy.

Nancy (Japanese: ナミコ Namiko) is a character of the day who appeared in The Evolutionary War!.


Nancy lives on Island C, one of the A-B-C Islands. She attends school over on Island A. Unlike many on Island C, she prefers Gorebyss over Huntail. Because of this, she had a rivalry with Keith, from Island B, who prefers Huntail.

She and the group joined Professor Birch's visits to Islands C and B to discover more about Clamperl and its branched evolution. After Birch learned that the islands' waters contained DeepSeaScale or DeepSeaTooth extract, Nancy tagged along again. On Island C Nancy located a DeepSeaTooth and gave it to Keith. Likewise, Keith ended up finding a DeepSeaScale on Island B and gave it to Nancy, and she used it to evolve her Clamperl into her desired Gorebyss.

Everyone returned to the Pokémon Center on Island A, and Team Rocket netted Gorebyss while Nancy admired her new Pokémon. Ash helped combat the evil trio and recovered Nancy's Gorebyss. Nancy and Keith joined forces and helped to defeat Team Rocket with their Gorebyss and Huntail, respectively. Afterwards, Nancy showcased her Gorebyss which helped settle the A-B-C Islands' biggest conflict over whether Gorebyss or Huntail was better.
