    Default Characters Speculation/Discussion Thread [USE SPOILER TAGS]

    Discuss the known characters of Pokemon X and Y here!

    All posts, speculation or not, should be constructive and contain ideas, support/elaborate their ideas, and must contribute to the discussions and/or on-going arguments. Also, one-liner posts such as "I agree.", "I want [this] to be in the game!", "This sucks!" will all be considered SPAM, deleted and you will be possibly infracted.

    Let's promote a worthwhile discussion!



    So far, all that are known (besides NPC overworld sprites) are the two protagonists.

    The protagonists seem to be of the older variant again. This didn't really add much for me in BW, other then Cheren being a gymleader two years later being a reasonable decision. Aside from this, I'm just wondering how that guy's wardrobe will translate to Ash in the animé..

    I liked the girl protagonist better.

    The boy looks just like a blander version of Hilbert.

    The main protagonist's clothes were way too similar to Hilbert's. Maybe I'm thinking too much into this but I guess that was their way of saying that we'll be able to customize our character's clothes.

    Aha, I was just thinking the same thing, only difference I can spot are the glasses on his head. Couldn't take a good look into the female character though.

    Yeah, I immediately thought character customization because the male protagonist was standing in front of a mirror in the trailer. Wonder what that will entail, if it does happen?

    That and the fact that he was wearing glasses. Seems like we could have some accessories to choose from.

    Now that would be cool. It does make sense though, because like Phoopes just said, the male character was standing in front of a mirror.

    For me, the male character looks like Hilbert except with glasses on his hat. I actually like the female more this time, which is good 'cause I am a girl. Lovin' the hair and dress.

    I don't like the playable characters all that much. They seem pretty childlike, even moreso than the PreDS games.
    I'm kind of hoping that Gamefreak edits them a bit to look older, but that's just my personal preference.
    I would love a character customization system though.

    Clothing customization makes sense for this game. With the European influence, it makes sense there'd be some focus on fashion.

    The characters are probably the thing I like least about the games(Besides it not being released right now and me playing it right now), I don't hate them or anything though, it's overall something I just have to get used to since it's pretty different for me.

    I do find the Male player character to be kind of disappointing though, as others have mentioned about him looking like Hilbert or whatever, I think that bag is the exact same too. I wont care in the end. I do hope there is some level of customizing at least...so I can finally be bald in the games.

    Interested to see how the Gym Leaders and non-clones look like.

    I just hope that everyone doesn't look the same. coz in 3d that would look really bad. They should maybe have a different face or something.

    Maybe you'll be able to buy clothes and accessories for your character in a department store or something similar? That would be interesting. I can't see any other reason why a mirror would be present in the game, other than to enable customisation.

    I couldn't really see how he looks but from what I could. I like the male playable character design and clothes. Couldn't see the female that well. Does anyone have screenshots of the two? I hope we get official artwork of them soon.

    Also am I the only one wishing and hoping for more Black characters this Gen? Seeing as Gen V was the first to introduce Black characters. If you are what kind of designs are you hoping for? I want a girl, dark skin, and pink hair. Or what kind of gym leaders are you hoping for in general (Not just Black character). A dark type Gym would be perfect!

    They'd probablly make a lot of money selling skins that are based on previous characters. Easy payed DLC.

    That would be cool. Like a little boutique in Paris? Pokemon Fashion Week where you can buy clothes?

    Hopefully the include a few version of each character. Instead of one Youngster, there's three or four. All looking somewhat different. Different color shorts, shirts, shoes, hates, eyes, and hair. Different skin tones as well?

    Seeing as this is France and not Japan, I think we'll be able to see a variety of ethnic groups here, too. Since Fire, Bug, and Ghost/Psychic-Type Gyms seem to be confirmed, a Dark-Type Gym would be nice for once. I'm glad that they're putting in a proper Fire-Type Gym - Chili isn't really the same, since he's grouped together with two other people.

    I'd like some actually good-looking villains (real ones, not people like N) this generation, too. ;p

    I had the same thought on the mirror, who knows, maybe they just added there to get a better look at yourself in the front, even though you can good enough already.

    I'm defiantly learning towards there being some level of customizing in the game, I doubt it'll be huge or anything though, a few different colours for hair and that, some different styles of hair and clothes, some other little stuff.

    I forgot to add. I'd love to see character customize in this game. You can make the character look like you and you'll get the feel that you're actually on this adventure.

    Yes, you are right about that. France have different races so there is still hope that my wish come true. Oh they confirmed those Gyms? I haven't seen that yet.

    Yea, A more mysterious looking Villian would be nice. :P

    unless i get both games, i'll only be playing through as the boy. i really hope that we can edit/customize the character b/c that would be yet another cool thing for Pokemon to do

    I won't be surprised if there is, it's about time. Not to mention, it'll remove the need for having to set what NPC you want to appear as to others.

    Maybe they'll make some of the more complex designs DLC as well? I kind of doubt it, what with Pokemon being aimed at kids at all, but Game Freak and Nintendo seems to have become more aware of the older fanbase recently. There are official Facebook and Twitter accounts, after all.

    Well, they appeared in the trailer, so I'm just guessing here. And I meant that I wanted more attractive guys, but... yeah, that would work, too.

    Well, first we had a female Champion. Then we had a female Professor.

    Now I want a female villain boss.
