    Tabitha has really let himself go, just how many lava cookies did he eat in the last 11 years?

    He really needs to hit the gym lol. Seriously, though, I liked his RS design way more: fit him much better, IMO.

    Haha. Yeah. I was really surprised how big's gotten.
    Meanwhile, Matt had been hitting the weights.

    It's really interesting to see Maxie so... geeky.

    The protagonists look great. There's way more depth to them than X&Y's. I don't see how you'd customize them. (I'm mostly talking about Brendan and his hat/hair)

    I mean, I don't want to see him without his hat.

    And honestly, I think customization was more of a fashion thing for Luminose in Kalos. Though its a great feature and they shouldn't take it out.

    Team Aqua looks great. But what happened to Tabitha, him and Shelly look completely different.

    I do wonder, would Wally be kept? He could have an expanded role in the story maybe. Like he could help the player fight Team Aqua/Magma.

    Lmao, maybe it's all the hi-tech stuff that made him this huge. Like he could've gotten lazy with tech doing all the work.

    But Team Aqua look like actual pirates, real pirates. Wonder how their roles would be altered.

    I just realized the Magma members together are forming a M with their poses.

    Most of the character designs seem all right, but I don't like Maxie and Tabitha, Maxie looks to much like a stereotypical nerd (I'd have absolutely no problem with his design if it weren't for the large rimmed glasses) and Tabitha just looks so derpy and nonthreatening, like one of those fat guy NPCs put on a red jacket.

    I assume the game is gonna stay the same, apart from Primal and Mega forms. And I'm pretty sure he'll stick around, lately we've had lots of rivals, and if you took him out we'd only have one. Plus, how on earth are we ever going to know how to catch a pokemon if Wally doesn't tell us, I mean come on.

    I never saw Team Aqua as pirates for some reason, just people who loved water... Though now looking back on it they really look like pirates. Though in my opinion, and oddly enough, Team Plasma strike me more as pirates due to their ship. I mean submarines are pretty pathetic compared to colossal ships, they really should have gotten a ship as a base instead of whatever they had near Lilycove, a masterball would have been perfect loot on a ship. There could even be a whole cutscene of a submarine lowering from the ship into the water with Team Aqua in it. But, the ship has been done before.

    And I guess spreading their feet apart is an A for Team Aqua?

    Agreed, they look like they were axed rivals from X and Y. Magma as a whole looks nonthreatening while Aqua looks like a band of pirate serial killers.

    I like Courtney's re-design, but Tabitha looks dreadful imo. Thank God that Team Aqua's Admins kept their good looks at least.

    Courtney looks to bland in my opinion. Almost could pass as a grunt. She got way less detail than Shelly, who got the best redesign in my opinion. Team Flare would give Team Aqua a 10/10.

    I completely agree about Tabitha.

    This is absolutely hilarious if you watched Cuggaconroy's LP of Emerald. Now Tabitha was made fun of his weight AND NAME.

    Poor guy can't catch a break.

    I love all the designs, and prefer Magma. I think redesigning them into Ex-Labcoats was a cool move, IMO.

    The Mods do.

    That's something, eh?

    Lol for the protagonists people are saying they look like swimsuits or something, which probably makes a bit of sense since Hoenn has plenty of water

    Correct me if this has been mentioned before, but the bracelets Brendan & May have now are the Mega Bangle, right?

    Also I thought that Brendan was carrying the PokéNav but that just looks like a lock for his backpack. May also has it in black above her waist.

    Yes and yes.

    Those are the bangles. And those are just clasps for the bags.

    I dislike the new makeover they gave May and Brendan. They looked way better in Ruby & Sapphire. May looks de-aged and Brendan looks buff xD

    I love Team Aqua's makeover however. I'm impressed.

    Okay, to be honest, I never really "got" what the heck team magma was supposed to be when originally playing ruby. I mean, Aqua was pirates, Rocket were thugs, plasma were knights, but what the heck was magma? I think that these new designs really make the vibe of the team much more clear.

    Thanks Wulava! I hope they don't replace the PokéNav. I loved the match call feature.

    I find it interesting that most people are labeling Team Magma so hastily, Maxie looks more like a mastermind than a nerd, taking out his glasses I don't see anything screaming stereotypical nerd. As far as admins go, I really wouldn't call Tabitha derpy, he fits more the "cruel fat guy" stereotype.

    I miss Shelly's curly red hair (last name Temple, anyone?).

    I'd also like to know what's up with the teams diverging along apparent race lines. Unless all of the Aqua members are just really, really tan? I wonder if that was intentional. It's noticeable, and uncomfortably weird for being so.

    Glad someone else is disappointed with the new May. No bandanna; now it's a bow. No mere spandex workout shorts; now it's Shauna-esque minishorts on top. No more collared flak jacket-looking vest; now it's a frill-bottomed low-cut tanktop with Lyra-style ... neck flaps? I have no idea what those are called. Man, I do wish they'd forgone the minishorts. Any young women playing Pokemon don't need the encouragement to wear underwear on the outside and pretend they're legitimate pants.

    Agreed, they look so bootlegged to me. I don't like the tans either, or the eyes. May looks even younger now, and isn't it odd that she isn't aged up because the recent protagonists were 16 years old?

    Yup, same here, they look very dangerous now, can't say the same for Magma though.

    And what exactly is Team Magma's "vibe"? I only ever thought of them as eco-terrorists. :x
