I don't know if there is already a thread like this, but, oh well...
Which one do you prefer? Wes from Pokemon Colosseum, or Michael from Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness?
Wes the whole way but XD Gale of Darkness is the better game

Wes looked a little dark and brutal. I suppose you'd get that from an ex-Snagem member. I liked Michael more, he seemed like me, just a kid (even though I'm 19, a kid at heart haha). Plus I enjoyed XD more than Colosseum.
Michael for sure, Wes dosen't look like a Pokémon character.

Wes by far.
1. He was a former thief...... and still was.
2. He looks old! Is that gray hair I see? Gray hair is awesome! (As long as it is dark gray and not closer to white.)
3. His awesome motorcycle!
4. Girls follow him for a reason.

Wes by far. We have had so many characters in the main series exactly like Micheal. Wes had an actual background, and was more than just the same happy go lucky trainer who just happens to be extremely talented. Wes was an ex-criminal, and is shown to be pretty ballsy throughout the game.
Though I will admit that I prefer Micheal's design.
^ This is the reason why I like arguing. If I come off as standoffish or overly angry in an argument, don't worry. I'm probably having the time of my life. Whether I agree with them or not, the pokemon fandom has a lot of different opinions, and I love how nobody is afraid to share them.even if we don't understand each other, that's not a reason to reject each other. There are two sides to any argument. Is there one point of view that has all the answers? Give it some thought.
Like almost everyone else here, I prefer Wes. It was cool to be able to play as an adult in a game for once, instead of a kid. Made the game feel a bit more mature for me. I also think Wes has a really great design, one of the best when it comes to male playable characters.
I liked Wes. If only for the longcoat and that epic introduction where he blows the villains' base up twice.
Wes all the way, his epic look was enough for me to choose him. Not to mention all the other things that made him even more amazing.
Made by me, if you want one then PM or something.
I felt like Wes was very stiff in his movements whereas Michael moved more naturally, that's why I chose Michael.
Now this one's so easy it almost seems unfair to poor Mike!
Wes is probably the oldest Pokemon game protagonist we've ever had. He's a former bad guy. He was respected and somewhat feared by his old team members. His alignment is nearly chaotic good - he's all about vigilante justice, saving Pokemon by literally stealing them away from their trainers. Yet he's also one of the few truly good people in Orre at the time. He broke the mold in so many great ways, and unfortunately his shoes were just too great for Michael to ever hope to fill.
But that's just my opinion.
I went with Michael because the poor guy needed some more votes and I think he's adorable.
However, I like both characters and I don't really have a strong preference for one over the other.

Based on looks, Michael. I'm don't like a lot of these "badass" characters that Wes was. My definition of "badass" is different than everyone elses... (If anything, Mike is more badass because he was an ordinary kid with an Eevee that ended up saving Orre.)
Honestly though, I don't care for either of them. They didn't talk, so I don't have much of a personality to go off of... ._.

Definitely have to go with Wes (horrible name though-good thing it can be changed). I think he is by far the best main character we've had in any Pokemon game (including games like Ranger or Trozei). XD was the better game though.
Life's obstacles are like a Snorlax. They can impede forward progress, they may weigh heavily on you, and you might need to seek others out to overcome them. But if you keep working at it, they can indeed be overcome, and open up new avenues for you to explore.
Eh. Michael is boring and looks really shrimpy in comparison to every single Pokemon character ever, while Wes has an interesting setup as being a former thief, so I would normally go for Wes. Unfortunately, Wes looks really silly. He almost seems like a fanfic character with his giant motorcycle, girl follower, Espeon and Umbreon (SO MUCH COOLER HE HAS BOTH!) and ridiculous design. Spikey hair, giant sunglasses, blue trench coat, and what on Earth is that white stripe under his eyes?
So I guess Wes, but both of them aren't my faves. Also, agreed with the people here that XD: Gale of Darkness>Colosseum.
