I have because I'm a guy and I prefer playing the hero instead of the heroine and it's kind of fun having May as my "rival" I prefer May over Gary and that red head from G/S/C

Yeah I use my name when I'm playing a silent character too...for some strange reason it makes me feel like I am that character.

I played with Brendan because I didn't know why.

I played as Brendan once in a no-save file becuase I wanted to see what May's Pokenav page looked like. But other than that, no, I always play as the female character.

I usually play with the male in one game and the female in the other. Emerald, being the first third game in which you could pick either gender, was a toss-up decided by the flip of a coin (literally). In the end I wound up being the boy.

When Platinum comes out, I will probably pick the female trainer.

I've always played as the male protagonist in each game. However what I use to do was I'd adapt to the actual Anime version of the character, and have the same Pokémon as the Anime character etc. It was fun for a while. But eventually I wanted to incorporate my own personality into the game, in which I became more stronger and most of all, it became more fun.

I play as a boy because I am a boy. If I play as the girl I would get confused and start questioning myself ;)

Actually, I switch off everytime I play.

You get asked if you are a boy or a girl not if you want to play as a boy or a girl I believe.
I have never played as the female character in any of the games

I don't like prancing around in Women's Clothing, so I play as a Guy :P

:laugh: You don't go prancing around in Women's Clothing, but whenever you play Tomb Raider or Metroid Prime you're a girl no matter what.

I chose Brendan, and named him Brendan. Even though I am a girl. But I'd rather have Brendan because he's my fave minor character

I bought a used copy of Pokemon Sapphire yesterday and the last person who played it was a girl because the main character's name was "SARA" and the main character had a fully evolved Torchic.

I alternate between the male/female characters. If I played the last game as a female, I play as male, and vice versa. So, yes, I have played Emerald as Brendan.

I play as a guy with my own name. because instead of copying the charactors from the shows, I'd thought it'd be fun if I played as myself

Nah, I always play as May/Dawn/Whatever..
It just doesn't seem the same when I play as the guy..

I've played as him a few times.

I think I'm playing as him on Emerald right now, though. D: But I like his uber awesome Emerald clothes better. I might play as him again when I start a new file on my Emerald that's not for storage. :D

I'm a girl, and I used Brendan. But I went by the name of Sweeney. I was quite a Sweeney Todd fan at the time. :)

Yeah, quite a few times. In fact, I'm playing as him right now in my current save file.

I won't even lie.

Half the time, I'll play as the female when I'm a male.

I have no idea why.

the bitter end.

Yes, I do (ususally). I like Garymoreactually but...

Before I started playing, my friend told me playing as a girl was easier because the male trainers wouldn't battle as hard against you. I actually believed him, so I never played as Brendan.

I play as Brendan occasionally when I want to use Swampert instead of Blaziken as my starter. It's just a habit of mine. But I play as May most of the time.
