    Pretty sure it's not a gender thing. I'm male and I certainly would like some freedom on what I look like. Pokemon is a game about freedom and playing the game as you like, being able to look how you want(Within reason and limitations) is perfectly reasonable. It's not like you have to customize your character if you don't want to, just like you don't have to do Musicals or Contests if you don't want to. It's there for those who want to do more and have some extra freedom in the game, not just for females of the franchise.

    EDIT: And I don't even care for fashion and that, I just want to be bald for once. Plus the male character looks too much like Hilbert for me.

    This would make the game much more varied, and I really hope that this translates to actual physical features, like hair. BLONDE PROTAGONISTS FTW!

    Yes, and Elesa was enough in my opinion.. Three out of four.. Good lord.. :| Just the thought alone all gives me shudders.. Because of that you think that fashion NEEDS to be incorporated into Pokemon?? This is spiralling out of control people.. Pokemon is not about clothes!

    I didn't say we needed it. I said that it's more than likely we will get it. But I will say that I wouldn't mind it if we did have customization. In fact, I would love it. I love creating my own characters.

    It's still a fun, creative, harmless, and completely optional feature that could easily be incorporated into the games.

    Not sure what to think of the new player character(s?). I do think they might go with the 'customize your own character' thing people seem to be suggesting. Part of me likes and dislikes that. I liked most of the player character designs in the past and the boy here seems underwhelming. I'm also not liking how the female character was downplayed in the trailer. But oh well.

    I can't say i care much about character personalization but i do think it is time for them to incorporate it after 5 generations, just make it optional.

    Wow, between this and saying "Pokemon: Turning queerer by the generation.. " in another thread... you can stop at any time now. You really need to educate yourself because you sound super ignorant.

    I hope they introduce a flamboyant, male fashion designer as the Champion. Wouldn't that be cool?

    I can't say I'm a fan of the player characters' designs. The male looks like a less interesting Hillbert or Nate. Was a clear shot of the female shown?

    Well there was Wallace.

    He'd fit in well in this new region. Wallace and Fantina need to show up together.

    Not really. She's shown running and she's wearing a red skirt, red, jacket/vest, with some white sleeves and a red hat. Then another time she was waring the red skirt and hat with what looked like a black sweater. Hopefully the official art for them pops up soon.

    This kinda matches the rival idea I was working on for Pokemon Games I was designing for fun and to use in my artwork portfolio.

    Nobody cares, but I'm going to ramble on about the idea now

    Essentially the rival was a girl who's "default" name is Oregon. She lives in a mansion on the outskirts of town. Her father owns the regions equivalent to the Department Store, and her mother is a very well known contest judge. She also has very well-off relatives such as her uncle being a member of the Elite Four.

    Due her upbringing and family history, she feels the need to prove herself, and wishes to do so by becoming a Dex holder and taking the Pokemon Challenge. She's not overtly mean or nasty to you, but she quite obviously looks down her nose at you and is very "entitled" and expects her journey to be easy, like it's written in the stars for her to be the best trainer ever. She doesn't even catch her Pokemon, they're all gifts from rich relatives.

    Depending on the results of your battles with her, she will come to respect you more and learn that she needs to improve as a trainer solely on her own efforts, not by the resources of others. As such, the last Pokemon to enter her team is caught by herself (Also, it's the only Pokemon that changes depending on your starter, other then her own starter of course)

    Obviously as I was working that idea, it's something I'd like to see, and I think it could fit what appears to be a French based Region quite well.

    Regardless of personality though i think the next rival needs to be
    - Female, regardless of player gender
    - To be respectively tough opponent. Not enough that they wipe the floor with you, but assuming that some players will be very young she needs to pose around a threat to players of average skill who haven't overleveled their pokemon.
    - Scaling difficulty based on your Won/Loss ratio against her, and her Pokemons levels slightly scale to match your own (No more then five levels though)
    - Finally, a Loss should be a loss. If you lose against her, you don't get that battle again, and the story acknowledges that she won.

    Oh and like everyone else seems to be mentioning, a female villain would be nice.

    The female trailer looks a lot like Roll from MegaMan.

    I think this is the first time we've had a blonde female protagonist!

    As for Characters... the evil team will most likely have something to do with the DNA of pokemon due to the logos and names of the game. X and Y are both chromosomes that determine almost everything in DNA... they shall be called "Team Colleuse" (French for Splicer, y'know like DNA splicers).

    Thank you based Turpoo

    I'm hoping for a Hilda/Hilbert/N cameo in this game given the postgame of the B2/W2.

    With the focus appearing to be Fashion, I have a feeling we'll get to see Elesa in all her 3d glory XD
    Along with customisation, It's a no brainer that they'll be releasing dlc costumes based on previous characters, easy easy money for them.
    So what if Dragonite were to receive a mega evo? Dragonitenite :P

    I believe they said they wouldn't do that with this series.

    Looking at the picture in Sonicmfc's sig line...look at the height difference between the two trainers waiting for the mc to come. That is awesome!!! Also look at how the had doesn't really fit on the MC head like it was placed there, which adds more evidence to customization.

    I like that idea. I hope they give you the option of changing hair colour, height and hairstyle so that I can make my character an ingame version of ME!!!!

    That would be awesome! Choose what the player looks like and maybe even the rival would make this game more like you xD

    Would like character customization too.

    If I had to take a wild stab in the dark, I'd guess the league trainers were something like this.

    Pokemon Gyms
    1. Poison
    2. Bug
    3. Fight
    4. Fire
    5. Grass
    6. Ice
    7. Dark
    8. Psychic

    Elite Four
    1. Water
    2. Electric
    3. Flying
    4. Steel

    Also, Elite Four need to be battle-able in any order again. One of the best decisions about B/W in my opinion.
