    There's an english scan about the B2W2 arc (it’s the preview that was at the end of Viz’s BW volume 9) and... sems that VIZ translated the name of Lack-two into Rachel... (and Mayu becoming "Maya")

    Do you like his "new" name??
    Me: no :uhm: the Japanese one is stange but nice and... if this scan is real, it will be the first time that they don't follow the games names... :yeahyeah:

    No, they are talking with him... in the first panel, in the non-official translations, Yuki (the girl based on the Smasher Trainer class) says "Hey! It's Lack-Two!" and here "oh, Rachel" to draw his attention...

    During the day he is a Rich player, and during the night he is an undercover secret agent for the International Police!

    I really didn't like the name "Lack-two"
    I know Pokemon special characters are named after the game titles, but "Black Two" --> "Lack-two" just felt so weird.
    Maybe it sounds better in Japanese, but not in English.

    I like how "Rachel" sounds, but I don't know why they decided to give him this name. It doesn't even sound similar XD
    What's Whi-two's name in VIZ?

    We have to wait January 3, 2017 to know that... VIZ will release the first volume of B2W2 that day... so we will know if Rachel will really be his official name or not :yeahyeah:
