(I was going to have a scene in which one of the older characters asked NamNar and Benjamin if they even shaved yet.) What makes it worse is that he'll always have a bit of a shorter, slimmer build, haha. He will always be a little boy.
I'd have to guess that one of the two is going to be a water type, since those are kinda like a plague in the pokemon games, they're just everywhere. He wouldn't want an ice type after his dealings with them, dragon types are unlikely, unless it's an Altaria, I couldn't see NamNar owning one... Steel types don't seem like his thing, and after the ghost type I doubt he'd be using anything like a poison or dark type. But this is all of course, only hypothesis.
Alice is SUCH an unfortunate name for a guy. Like Dexter's Lab where the rival's parents named their son 'a non-gender specific name-SUSAN'. I beg you, do not name your male pokemon Alice, he will be laughed at on the pokemon playground.
you know what else is an unfortunate name to be stuck with if you're a male? Kelly. I swear I've met at least one guy who's first name and not last was Kelly. Hmmm...now I'm gonna go pre-name the empty slot on my team Kelly.
