    Her complete contrast with the other professors.....I want to see what kind of talk will happen when all of them are together




    And yes, it has to be female, we have a severe lack of female professors XD
    I'm up for a female professor and all but I'm not sure if they should be a kid, also what species of tree would you name for a child professor that would suit such a young professor?

    Prof. Sapling? I know that's a stage of development rather than a species. Haha I don't mind either way about the Professor. I think it could be quite funny/ endearing if a professor was an immature little kid but with unrivalled and surprising knowledge. Can a child be a Prof. though? Would whoever the arbitrating board are allow a little kid to hand out Pokemon to trainers?
    I really want a jerk rival. One who is difficult to beat and uses underhanded tactics, like following you and waiting til you're in a difficult situation to pounce. That's make it difficult and would make people hate them.

    Of course it requires that. Pokémon Professors are the biggest regional authorities in Pokémon, it's too much responsability to give away to someone with "a basic sense of Pokémon".

    You need a title to be a Professor; the Japanese version makes it explicit you need a doctorate title to be a Pokémon Professor.

So while most children are not capable of that, that doesn't mean all are. Also, keep in mind I was referring to a child prodigy not some random child as a professor.

    Professor is a term reserved for people with a doctorate degree, or a university professor (who usually has a doctorate degree anyway). There's a massive gap between a high school science prodigy and a professor. Simply traveling around with pokemon does not make you an expert on them as a whole, no more than me living on a wildlife preserve in Africa for three years would make me an expert on mammalian biology. Yes, I would have a better understanding of mammalian behavior and physiology, but that doesn't make me an expert. Plenty of biological phenomenon have to be observed in a controlled laboratory setting. Years of extensive study are required to achieve the knowledge necessary to attain a doctorate-level understanding of... well, anything.

    Pokemon has shown a tendency to push the suspension of disbelief, but they would not completely throw their sense of realism out the window. A young child will never be a regional professor. The fact I'm even debating this point is ridiculous.

    Although I would like a child prof, it won't fit coz the Prof needs to old so, that he his too old and tired to go on his own journey, hence entrusting the job on you. If it was a child prof, he/she could very well go on his own.
    But, it is an intriguing idea. It's different from the usual.

    Besides, for example when Oak or Rowan encommended you the task of exploring the region to gather data of all the Pokemon, it felt like an important task that you really had to complete because it was given to you by someone who stood as a figure of respect. Now if I went to recieve my first pokemon from a child ''prodigy'' saying I have to gather data of all the pokemon in the region while he/she is playing with toys, I would take it as a bad joke.

    She's definitely an adult, old enough to have a doctorate degree.

    Since she seems to be a friend of the player character's mothers (in both BW and B2W2, the latter talking about her like an old friend), we can probably assume they have similar ages even.

    When, Prof. Juniper was revealed (from my memory I think it was Dr. Araraga or someting like that) I was: Prof. Willow or Prof. Maple!
    Then, the English name was revealed: What's a Juniper?
    What about a relative being the Prof?

    Is that a rhetorical question? If not, "Juniper" is a Tree.

    I wouldn't mind someone related to you being the Professor, but I'd hope it would be your mother or father so at least one has some kind of other role then just being your parent, hopefully if you have two parents in the game that the other will be champion or something.

    Another female professor would be niiiice !
    I enjoyed prof' Juniper (tHat,s weird to say, hm) because I guess... I don't know, there are too many male professor.
    That's my opinion.

    Also, I'm not against the idea of a child professor, it could be funny and make the game interesting !

    A child professor? No thank you. You wait until you're ten, or later it seems in the games, to get you're first pokémon, which someone younger gives to you? It doesn't make sense, and the idea is a bit silly.

    A child professor actually wouldn't be a bad idea; I can see it working out. As for the rival, I think a female rival no matter which character you choose would work well-- the only real female rival we've had was May if you chose Brendan in the Hoenn region. Bianca doesn't exactly count, as she quit halfway through.

    New idea, what if there were two professors? Kinda like the Junipers, except they're siblings.

    I was thinking of what the gym leaders names could be.
    An Electric Gym Leader could be Rod
    A dark gym leader could be Daren
    A grass leader could be Fiona.

    They might suck but I thinks hey work.

    Did Bianca quit? You battled her up until Route 8, plus you can battle her post game. May/Brendan stopped battling you at Lilycove City.

    Yeah...last I checked, it was pretty difficult for a kid to get into college. It's impressive enough as it is that my older sister made it there when she was 16, and that was only getting there.

    Rod definitely sounds different than the norm of other Electirc Gym leaders, since they all have a hint of the type related concepts. Rod didn't make sense to me at first, but then it was clear that it had to do with using iron rods when man first discovered electric-based concepts.

    Daren sounds like of the Dark norm, meh. We can't really think of much names for Dark leaders and elite fours.

    Fiona is a feminine name, and I'm really looking forward to a Grass gym that has a male leader. Gordon (as in garden), Turk (as in turf), or Lawrence (very obscure connection to the term 'lawn').

    Here's how I think it'll go.

    Grass gym - Male leader (single battle)
    Psychic gym - Porter (as in teleport) (single battle)
    Rock gym - Damon (diamond) (single battle)
    Fire gym - Iggy and Cole (ignite, charcoal)(double battle)
    Fighting gym - Daequan (tae kwon) (single battle)
    Poison gym - Clara (as in hydrochloric) (single battle)
    Normal gym - Whitman (rotation battle or triple battle based on version)
    Flying gym - Angel (pretty clear in the name, also male) (single battle)

    E4-
    Steel - Nicholas (Nickel) OR Titania (titanium) (both are elements)
    Ice - Kate (ice skate)
    Ground - _______ (blank, can't think of a name)
    Electric - MC Flow (amp flow/ current flow)

    Versatile Champion

    Like maybe a brother and sister team. That would be pretty wicked. Or even better, attractive female twins for professors.

    If that were to happen, I'd like it if there were two professors of a different gender and which ever gender your player is the opposite gendered professor will give you your Starter Pokemon, assist you and all that other good stuff.

    Regarding child professor, the thing I'm interested in the most is how GF will pull it off if they indeed choose to go that way.

    even better, a douchebag female rival.

    because, just like the Professors, there's a lack of female rivals.
