After 4 generations of male Professors, Professor Oak, Professor Elm, Professor Birch & Professor Rowan, they finally decided to create a female professor,

The New Professor - Dr Araragi:

So, what's your opinion on this, good, bad?

This is good, I've always thought there should be a female prof. You actually forgot prof. Ivy, from the Orange Islands, but I have to say that this one looks better than Ivy.

Well, it makes a nice change. Two things I'm wondering:

-What tree she'll be named after
-If she'll be related to the rival

And Ivy wasn't in the games, was she? So I don't think she counts.

It's ace that they have created a female professor. Can't wait to see what other new things are going to occur within the game.

She looks awesome. I love her hair-style :3 It's about time the Pokémon games had a female Professor.

The fact that we finally have a female professor in the games is awesome! Sure, I like the guys as much as the next person, but it's nice to have a bit of a change. Besides, Professor Araragi totally rocks that lab coat~

Anyways, Araragi is a lily, so English might be Professor Lily haha.

I only checked the news like 4 hours ago, and look at what's come out! I love you Gamefreak for introducing a female Professor, and also making her HOT! I'm loving this region.

This is good. It's about time. They gave her more fashion sense than any previous professor, that's for sure.

woot woot, what site called it!? Pokejungle (http://pokejungle.net)!

Araragi is not a lily, but the taxus cuspidata or Japanese yew tree.

Female professor is so win.<3

I think Professor Maple. Professor Yew doesn't sound quite right. o.o

Oh, The Places You'll Go.
June 11th, 2010, 10:06 AM
Female Professor? I think I like this game. (:

It's about friggin' time. I really hope that she doesn't turn out to be an annoying professor like Elm.

qft, why does it really matter that the professor is a female? It's just a professor...

Cherrim
June 11th, 2010, 10:29 AM
She doesn't really look like a professor. More like a washed up beauty queen who wears a lab coat for sex appeal. But whatever.

A change is always nice.

Xander Olivieri
June 11th, 2010, 10:44 AM
She'd be second Canon Professor in all of Pokemon History, but the first in the games. I didn't see if she had a name though...Will they keep the tree line going?

Because we still know so little that this is considered major. <=3 It's relative.


Also, woot, female professor, and she's not the stereotype of old people!

So little kids will realize that boys and girls can both grow up to be Pokemon professors. And because the fans wanted it. What other reasons do you need?

PkMnTrainer Yellow
June 11th, 2010, 10:50 AM
Oh and also I'm not sure everyone's aware but some statistics suggest that girls are significantly less likely to grow up to be scientists. This may also be a nod to that by supporting girls being "professors".

I'm looking forward to a female professor. This would be the first one in any Pokemon franchise, excluding Professor Ivy, but she wasn't in any of the video games.

MrsNorrington
June 11th, 2010, 12:42 PM
I think it's totally awesome that there's finally a female professor in the game series!

That is a lie though o_o; Women can't be professors...

BTW- whoever said I should stop advertising my site should say it to my face.

Apparently 'Araragi' is another name for Japanese Yew trees.

I think its great that theres a female proffesor! But makes you wonder why it only happens after 15 years

Chloè
June 11th, 2010, 02:49 PM
In any case, she'll probably get a name like Dr. Ginko, or Prof.Yew. >.<
I like her look as well. Although, it would be nice to add a splash of color to her outfit instead of white/green. But meh, that would be me.

REPLEKIA...is getting sick of the English professor names. (I still think Dr. Ginko would be coooool)

BleuVII
June 11th, 2010, 02:58 PM
This is cool. Professor Rowan looked like that guy that taught required courses that always forgot to bathe. Araragi looks like she has personality. I think Professor Maple sounds like a good name.

Best. Generation. Ever.

Finally a female.

This. But if anything, I don't mean it in a perverted sense. :( not saying you did either, Jakey!

Having a female professor would finally bring about some change in Gen V; the long awaited change that has been finally going on in Pokemon games for like, four generations. I'm starting to really love Nintendo now! ♥

Prof Araragi is the first in-game female professor.

All of the professors have been named after trees, and some non-prof.

Ash, Gary Oak, Oak, Elm, Birch, Rowan

which tree is Aragari?

The answer is the Evergreen tree also called Ishii Taxus Cuspidata

is known as Onko, and Aragari

You completely neglect to realise that evergreen is not the tree itself, it's a type of tree; the type that doesn't lose its leaves in winter.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taxus_cuspidata

Araragi are Japanese Yews.

It changes nothing, except maybe when she says "I came as soon as I heard" making that less creepy.... but interesting none the less

Also, woot, female professor, and she's not the stereotype of old people!

What is this "<=3" symbol supposed to mean? It looks dubious... xD
I'm excited about this Pokemon first. Even though I'm doubtful Araragi will play much of a role beyond urging me to complete my Pokedex, I wonder what kind of connections she will have, and so on.

CakeForTheSoul
June 11th, 2010, 05:07 PM
See better name something decent not. EVERGREEN. Because that name is poopie. She will most likely carry on the tradition of being named after a type of tree.

June 11th, 2010, 05:11 PM
professor yew.
i call it here and now!

OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire
June 11th, 2010, 05:12 PM
I read that the profs name might be a name of a butterfly genus somewhere...
Jew tree...I like that tree it has smooth leafs!

-Jared-
June 11th, 2010, 05:20 PM
I don't know if anyone else believes this counts, but the player's mom, Lily, from Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness was a female professor...XD Lol, I know, I know, Professor Araragi is the first MAIN SERIES female Pokemon Professor.

I think it's great that we finally have a female professor. It's nice to have a change like that. XD

June 11th, 2010, 05:52 PM
She is looking good and young, I like her... I hope she won't given a childish personality...

Kuku-oni
June 11th, 2010, 06:09 PM
Pfft, finally, Nintendo!
I bet she'll be named Prof. Yew. Just because Nintendo likes their trees.
And lol I thought Lily sounded familiar. Yeah, she was the first game series' female professor, but not in the main games.
So, technically, Araragi would be the third female, in general.... not bad... in fifteen years... -sweatdrop-

Aquerex
June 11th, 2010, 06:12 PM
Doctor Yew, Prof. Yew...

Interesting. I originally thought it would be Prof. Maple, but I'm OK with Yew.

June 11th, 2010, 06:46 PM
Finally ^^ And she doesn't look old like the other professors.

§acred†Beo!
June 11th, 2010, 06:48 PM
This is so great i'm glad they finally added a female professor into the games!

.EJ
June 11th, 2010, 06:58 PM
I love the idea! I'm especially happy because many of us actually expressed our opinions and demands for a female professor...and it happened!

I think her name will be Willow.

I can definitely see her English name being Willow, would certainly fit. :P

Penutz
June 11th, 2010, 07:12 PM
Perhaps the husband of another professor?

If it were my guess, I'd say Prof.Birch. they look evenly aged. A young women like this dating some old birch or oak would be a bit disturbing

Adley
June 11th, 2010, 07:27 PM
She looks decent. Prof. Lily sound good for us English people as well. No wonder the starters are more femenine this generation!

Nice. I predicted it too. Now i predict that the champ will be a little kid, or an elderly person.

But really why not Professor Willow it does sound good. :P

Finally! This generation is essentially doing what many fan projects have done for a long time (playing up dark/light) and now, introducing the long-desired female prof. She looks fiiiierce.

June 11th, 2010, 09:07 PM
W00t! Finally, a female Prof, after all that testosterone has abounded in the majority of the Pokemon labs! :) Proper recognition to the intelligence of ladies is being given at last... And she's hot to boot, just like the BW girl! She's one Prof. I'm going to actually take my time revisiting after I get my Pokabu from her (or from whatever wacky situation the game presents to me)! :D

This Gen is going to be awesome. So much innovation and rebirth... :cer_boogie:

Nope, not allowed. After a month you'll need to remake the thread~
Characters discussion is there, but the professor has a significant role, so it's okay.

(What's with the revivals today? XD)
