This thread is a place where you can discuss the characters that will appear in the upcoming XY Anime. So far, these people are confirmed to have a role in the new saga:
A Pokémon Trainer from Pallet Town in the Kanto region. Together with his partner Pikachu, he has come to the Kalos region to pursue his dream of becoming a Pokémon Master. He loves Pokémon more than anyone else, but hates crooked stuff. In Pokémon battles, he tends to just attack non-stop, but at times, ideas occur to him that nobody else could think of. He has a strong heart and never gives up.

Feel free to discuss potential cast dynamics, characters' personalities, roles, purposes, goals, etc. You can also discuss possible appearances and personalities of characters confirmed to appear in the XY games. Do NOT discuss who's going to catch what Pokémon! We have a separate thread for that.
We would also like to remind everyone of the character bashing rule. Yes, apparently it's possible to hate on characters before they've even had their debut in the show...
