    I don't see how it'd be better. I'd see it as a gimmick that has no impact whatsoever on the game

    Because there's no real need for it?

    Plus it would eat all the space available on the game cards, wouldn't it? Each customisation would need a sprite for left, right, forward and backward, walking in every direction, biking in every direction, in the battle, etc.

    if they can do it for each pokemon then they can do it for a few characters :P and it'd make it more personal, cos I want the char to look like me not that guy -.-

    Well, it's not like they'd have sheets for every single possible combination... As long as they had sprites for the parts and they just sorta piece them together... Yeah... I bet I'm not making any sense.

    Sprites don't take up all that much space anyhow, you'd be surprised. :[

    It's for that specific reason that we don't have space for customising.

    That city shot, while an amazing one, kinda worries me. It gives the vibes that the cities will encompass much larger area than the ones we usually have (the ones with only 9-10 houses that you can run past in ten or so seconds). What if it does not live up to the expectation?

    I think the idea of a jinrikisha seen from behind, or rickshaw as it's otherwise known as (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rickshaw), seems very accurate to the 'red thing', to me.
    In the blown up image, the 'feet' are actually 2 wheels, much like a rickshaw. The black lines coming up from the sides are the poles that the navigator holds.
    The light-coloured top would just be a straw hat, with the red part is the carriage for a person to ride in.

    However, i could be wrong, and it could be anything anyone suggests at the moment. A gameplay clip in the next month would be very welcomed to confirm any of our suspicions.

    I certainly agree with this. And on the left, as 4th KIRA mentioned, does look like a port or pier, which Hiroshima also has.
    The city behind the bridge would possibly be based on Okayama as it has the Great Seto Bridge
    Based on the Chuugoku theory, IF they ever have a desert in this region, it should be near Tottori (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tottori_Sand_Dunes)

    That should be enough for speculation. Just need to wait now...

    You'd be surprised actually. Having four different sprites for each piece of clothing, depending on how many they have, actually uses up a fair amount of space on a DS cart. They're not very big.

    I think having a detailed customisation system might take up too much space.

    But i think that it might be possible to have specific outfits to switch from, like in HG/SS, where you have 3 different outfits (though 2 can only be used in the underground/RocketGoldenrod or the Pokeathlon) even a limited wardrobe like that would give more choices for players, rather than your character always looking the same and having no ability to change it.

    I was absolutely thrilled in Soulsilver when my character put on the Rocket Outfit. i wish it lasted for longer

    The new pictures are a bit of a let down for me. I don't see much of a graphical update. The overworld sprites are almost exactly the same as 4th gen. Really, it's just kinda like HGSS with a different camera angle. Hopefully, the storyline will make up for the graphics.

    Its the island where Cianwood resides on its tail end at the east. Chigoku/Shokoku is far better seeing how they won't be too small or too big, but I prefer Tohoku being the region much more. Uh Kyogre, basing Pokemon on graphics or storyline is kinda freakin hard, its the gameplay that mostly matters.

    It doesn't really require all that much space as you think, even if they do use individual sprites for each customization instead of some other method. Customization obviously won't be limitless and considering the number of sprites already in the game, this'd be just a minor fraction. With all the other stuff the game cards can hold, I don't see why people are saying that a few
    customization would take up insane amounts of space.

    Another possible alternative that was suggested by someone earlier is to go with a number of preset custom styles for trainers, either entire sprites or their clothes/accessories/hair, etc. This would give people their customization while still limiting the use of space on the game card.

    As we wind on down the road~

    I think that i looks very much like a back sprite of an old women with her hand folded behind her back, a rickshaw, although possible, i think may be unlikly

    I admit storyline is a side-issue when it comes to Pokemon games but the general gameplay, as it stands, will always remain the same; so the graphics are one of the only thing that people can look forward to for changes and enhancements.

    And yeah, who wouldn't expect/want each subsequent Pokemon game to have better graphics or at least refine the old ones?

    Kinda slightly coincidal, considering the last 2 games were in Johto.

    Everyone would, and these games do this. The DPtHGSS did not have a proper sky in the backround and it did not look like it could be a proper world, and not just in a bird eye view.

    Its the same way people can expect Tohoku as the region as its the region were the Shinto ruins technically should be in.

    Actually the island where Cianwood resides is Shikoku region. Chuugoku region is connected to the mainland, or west of Olivine City. But it doesn't make a real difference - they're all west of Johto.

    And Chuugoku is also east of Hoenn. In relation to Japan geographically, Hoenn is the island of Kyushu, although turned around.
    So, Chuugoku/Shikoku is actually between Hoenn and Johto.
    However, the Chuugoku theory is just speculation, so it equally might be in Tohoku. Although, the urban environment does seem similar to the port cities of southern Chuugoku. But there could be some in Tohoku that i haven't heard of.

    Now that i look at it, it does look like an old woman. Although the supposed 'legs' throw me off. Just need more images and clips just to confirm...

    If the region is based on Chuugoku, the big city could really be Hiroshima, as it's surrounded with water, just like Hiroshima has the sea and several rivers passing through it, forming islands.
    I agree, and I'm pretty sure this will be ingame region. How do I know? A major clue is that the name of this region is based on Yin and yang (look it up on wikipedia). Black and white anyone?

    Chūgoku also has mountains, deserts, cities - it's the perfect setting IMO. Whereas Tohuku, is, well, a tad bland...

    Coincidence that sounds really good. I can't wait until we get the name of the region Black and White are set in. New region FTW.

    Nice nice nice!
    I love the graphics, I just wonder how walking will work like everyone else.
    That city is huge and it looks like there is an exit to the upper left as well as the one near the bottom.

    Now that bridge, am I the only one that thinks the grannybotbiker 2000 has a mohawk?
