alright, so i just wanna hear opinions on this. it might be dumb to some, its a personal thing. and abit of a story but its on my mind since Black 2 is comming soon.

the signifigance of this comes from abit of my pokemon history. my first pokemon game, technically, was good old yellow. however, it was a hand me down. from my cousin i think. it was beaten, and i was hesitant as a child to erase that. my first real game was a shiny new silver version from a friend. he helped me get started, and dubbed my character MAX. not entirely sure why, neither of us even knew a person named max. but since then, i have always named my character max, with one and only one acception. As max was my silver character first, max has never started in kanto. i dont know why i didnt in the remakes when i was little, i guess it just didnt feel right. max is not Red.

the point of this? i am thinking about it, and considering wether or not to name Ebony (black 2) max or not. Max wasnt Red, he beat Red on mt silver. And max has already been through unova as Black.

no hate. ik its coming. but this is important to me. i just wanna hear some thoughts on my stupid story :P

    Too be fair, only Pokemon Special calls the guy Ruby, and only to fit the name theme.

    But Ebony does sound pretty cool, if rather girly. But what about using the English names, when they come out?

    most fans seem to refer to them by their colors too, atleast as ive seen. but wait, off topic lol. i was sorta hoping people would help me decide if Max should continue his adventures or not. part of me wants to name him max because im so used to the name it wouldnt feel right to name my character something else. the other part says max has been to unova as Black, and should pass the torch on this one. similar to the way hes never been Red.

    Why not just have another Max? It's not an uncommon name.
