# Me and some friends

I went out with friends, with ice and with flame.
We all play our parts, in a really fun game!
But unlike those friends, I haven't a set name.
Call me "whatevr", I'll work all the same.

Who am I?

### Hints

1

I don't exist IRL. Really, how lame!
But you'll need to think video to win at my game.
That "whatevr"s not a typo! Bet you're wondering why?
It maxes at seven. So limited. Sigh.

2

Still are you stuck? It's fine, I don't blame.
Of all my relation, you choose only my name.

3

Back for more help? "I give up", you proclaim?
Being "stuck to the floor" is the source of my fame!

4

I'm your favorite thing. Now there's no excuse.
Now go figure it out, you big silly goose :)

5

Now over two years, not a single one right.
Let's bump with a hint, getting this back in your sight.

I belong to a hero, be quite sure of that,
I'm neither food or alive, not dog nor a cat.
My name sticks with me, throughout all your trek
but when we set off, you choose it, before a final recheck.

The earlier hints were unclear, their knowledge, a bit slurred.
They've been tweaked and updated, given a total reword.
I can't say much more, without giving it away.
If this doesn't help, unsolved, this will stay.

Pokemon!

But unlike those friends, I haven't a name.

The Name Rater deosn't have an actual name.

Call me "whatevr", I'll work all the same.

People can give him nicknames.

Hint 1

I don't really exist. Really, how lame!
$\to$He doesn't serve any gameplay uses, only aesthetic.
But you'll need to think digitally to win at my game.
$\to$Pokemon has a lot of numbers (stats, level, PP, HP, etc.)
That name's not a typo, lest you thought that
$\to$Your attempt to dispel typo-related answers.
But now back to thinking, no more chitchat.

Hint 2

Still are you stuck? It's fine, I don't blame.
But fine, another hint: Of my friends, only I can rename.
$\to$Once you assign a name to a Pokemon, only he can change it.

Hint 3

Back for more help? Give up, do you claim?
I'm stuck to the floor - it's the source of my fame.
$\to$He can't leave his building.

Hint 4

I'm your favorite thing. Now there's no excuse.
$\to$He's the first person people look for if they made a typo/mistake when naming their Pokemon.
Now figure figure it out, you big silly goose :)

• Ooh, that's really good. Unfortunately, not the right answer :( – Mikey T.K. Jul 15 '16 at 0:41
• @MikeyT.K. Is it a specific game or games in general? – user351579 Jul 15 '16 at 0:44
