    I voted for Wes.

    Wes had this whole "cool" factor and the fact that he was part of Team Snagem was a cool addition to his storyline. Although I prefer playing XD Gale of Darkness over Colosseum.

    Wes, because he had an actual sidekick. He also had an Espeon and an Umbreon, and these two are both my favorite Pokemon.

    Wes had a more interesting character background, but XD was a much better game!

    Well I really think Wes was cooler, he had a better mind (stealing the Snag Machine yup yup) and travelled along with somebody, so... yes, voted for Wes.

    Wes is the ORIGINAL badass. Michael was just a cheap knock off who came later.

    Wes, absolutely:
    - Colosseum is extremely nostalgic to me, that counts.
    - Wes has a backstory with his Team Snagem past, Michael lacks a backstory like that.
    - Wes is a former criminal, and seems like an adult, something pretty unique for a Pokemon game.

    Haven't played Colosseum, but Wes is definitely my favorite. Looks pretty awesome :c Michael was like the typical child starting his journey... except it was with Shadow Pokemon <_> I do love XD though X3

    Wes, most badass protagonist to ever be in a Pokemon game imo.

    31 to 5 seems like a clear majority to me, even if the sample size isn't that large. :V

    Wes for obvious reasons. He offers something different other Pokemon protagonists have not. Clearly older, more of a 'cool' design, for a voiceless protagonist has some hinted-at flaws and hence character (worked for Snagem before), and starts the game by blowing stuff up. Much more interesting than the Game Freak protagonists, and Michael too who is simply a kid who is good at battling and has an Eevee.

    The reason i like wes more is i like the coloseum games better and. I like how you basically get to be a villain and treated like a hero.

    I prefer Michael. I felt like he was a more relatable character and Wes' backstory was a little out there. Plus Wes didn't have that same look and feel that most heroes in both the main series and spinoff games have.

    Wes was always gonna win this one.

    XD is far better game but West is just an absolute champion.

    Wes by far.

    The reason I chose Wes is that he's the exact opposite to what you would expect to be the hero of a Pokemon. He's an ex-criminal, he's an adult, and he lives in a region full of crooks. Wes was designed to be fit in with how Orre was before stepping in. He also had a hover bike... that alone is I chose him over Michael, who seemed like the typical character. You could have put Michael in any of the mainstream games without the small Snag Machine and whatnot and he'd fit right in.

    I prefer Wes because I think he was the perfect protagonist for the plot. He had an interesting backstory, a mysterious personality, a quirky design and we got something from him that was completly unique at the time: double starters.

    Wes for the win!!! and to this date...I still believe that Colliseum is the best Pokemon game in the "stadium" series of like games. I hope they will make one similar to it for the Wii U.

    I'd have to Wes was better. He really fit the theme of the game, Michael felt kind of out place in XD to me.

    This is no competition for Wes.
    Wes had everything you wanted in a Protagonist.
    His character's design is one of my favorites and he had a much deeper storyline compared to Michael.
    I also thought that it was cool that Wes had a sidekick in Rui unlike Michael.

    If you ask me,
    Michael couldn't fill the shoes that his old predecessor left behind.
    But I ain't gonna lie, Michael is one cool Protagonist as well. :)

    Michael.. Wes seems like a jerk :/ I guess I can't judge fairly though, only played XD
        Spoiler:- Bugs:

    So I was building quite a nice winning streak on random wifi battles, having beaten my way through countless Garchomps, Volcoronas, Aegislash and Mega Blazikens. Then my streak was utterly broken by a Vivillon, who completely swept my team.

    I laughed it off as a one off sort of thing, since the guy deserved props for using it after all. But just as I was starting to build another win streak another Vivillon trainer showed up and it happened again. I am living in perpetual fear that the next trainer I face will have a happy, smiling murder butterfly on their team.

    Pokemon #666 indeed.

    I don't like preferences, I don't have any, I look at others equally. If I HAD to pick one over the other, that'd likely be Wes, as he had an interesting personality, a stand-out design, an out-of-the-ordinary backstory, etc., plus the opportunity for me to use my (somewhat) whacked imagination as to what kind of character he was and why he did all the things he did (in-game and prior). (I really like Michael though, and the games were equally fun in a different way.)
