    The main reason I portray Lance as coming from a lower class background and Lorelei as coming from wealth is because I ship them, and I love poor country boy/rich city girl pairings. On the other hand, I usually hate poor country girl/rich city boy. The underprivileged woman/overprivileged man dynamic is just icky.

    However, I'm finding it increasingly pointless to ship the two, because the pairing doesn't seem to have any fans.

    Sinnoh, the most rural? ROFL.

    I think it's a good thing that even if he came from wealth and privilege that he doesn't act like it, it makes him more heroic when you think about it, someone who renounced that to make it to the top on his own merit.
    Privilege is something that cannot just be shaken off. That is why kind, compassionate people who were born into wealth are rarer than hen's teeth.

    He came from a prestigious Dragon Trainer clan though...
    In the poorest, most rural region. That doesn't mean anything.

    Besides, his character doesn't work as someone who came from wealth and privilege. It makes him less relatable and more hypocritical.

    But, that's pretty much Lance's backstory. As well as that of most player characters.

    Well it is her home...but she could've sent trainers who looked up to her (like how the gym leaders have the gym trainers) to deal with any possible grunts that may reemerge. I think instead she stayed back and taught her people how to battle so that they can protect 4 Island in her absense.
    Again, that leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I always imagined Lorelei coming from wealth, not some dinky island in the middle of nowhere.

    If we ever go back to Kanto/Johto in a non Gen I/II remake I'll like to see her regain her spot with. Maybe Tuxedo Mask has replaced Sabrina as she appears in B2W2 as an actress.
    What I'd like to see is just a flat-out REBOOT at this point. Treat Lorelei with respect, de-bimbo-ize Sabrina, and wipe Tuxedo Mask from existence. (Or, send him packing to a newly-created Johto E4.) I'd be happy with that.

    That's true, with Whitney and Clair being the worst of the three "issues" as Jasmine was taking care of her Pokemon and didn't want to leave it's side, while the other two simply acted like children...
    Clair was probably the very worst. Whitney, at least, HAD the excuse of being a child (albeit one who was still a bit old to be throwing temper tantrums), but Clair was a grown ass woman. She should know how to behave herself better than throwing a gigantic hissy fit every time she loses. Her behavior looks even worse when you compare her to the likes of Bugsy and Janine, who actually WERE children, yet had their muk together and took their losses very well.

    I wonder why GF decided to replace those two in Gen II...especially considering that Lorelei is young and Agatha seems like the type that would rather die than give up her position (perhaps she did die, but I would imagine her good friend Oak would mention something). GF tried to remedy this in FrLg, but it was dumb seeing how the player got rid of Team Rocket in the Sevii islands...now if only we could've returned to 4 Island to see what Lorelei was doing...
    It's hard to say. I can kind of understand their replacing of Agatha because she was old, and more importantly, she had the same ace as Morty. Ghost types were still few in numbers in GSC, and even if Morty had a Misdreavus as his ace instead of Gengar, Agatha's team still wouldn't have been distinct enough from his.

    Lorelei, on the other hand, was a complete mystery. Ice had a bit more diversity than Ghost, so her team didn't even remotely resemble Pryce's, and she was way too young to just die or retire. I'd say that the Jynx controversy might have caused her to get the boot, but they went ahead and gave Tuxedo Mask one, too.

    The "explanation" they tried to give for her absence in FRLG was horrible and only made it worse, IMO. Why would ANYONE willingly quit a prestigious career to do nothing but waste time on a bunch of worthless Rocket Grunts on some no-name island in Bumpsyduck Egypt? All they did was make Lorelei look like an even bigger failure of a trainer than Ash Ketchum.

    I knew there was another one. Perhaps that was to make Gen 4 more of a Gen II expy. Anyways Gen II really is the most male dominated League (even it's gyms have only 3 girls irc (Whitney, Jasmine, and Clair)).
    And, on top of that, Johto's three girls were the only ones who gave you "issues"--Whitney cried after you defeated her, Jasmine wouldn't let you battle her without fetching a potion for her, and Clair threw a hissy fit and made you go take a test. The guys, on the other hand, could all be battled normally. They didn't make you do anything for them before they'd battle you, and none of them threw a tantrum and refused to hand over the Badge.

    Of course, the sexism of Johto's gyms was offset somewhat by Kanto's becoming more equal in Gen 2. With Janine replacing Koga, Kanto's gyms were now an even 4 girls/4 guys. And, Kanto's 4 girls--Misty, Sabrina, Erika, and Janine--weren't as loaded with negative stereotypes as the 3 Johto girls were.

    However, the sexism of the Gen 2 Indigo Plateau was just inexcusable. Not only were the two women from Gen 1 dropped, but they weren't even all replaced with other women. We only got Karen in exchange for Lorelei and Agatha. It looks even worse in HGSS, which also retconned out Green as a possible Champion by not depicting her on Mt. Silver as an alternative to Red. It really makes the Indigo League look like a complete No Woman's Land.

    But all of the E4's minus Gen II's had a 1:1 ratio of M and F. It would had been 1:1 if Lorelei or Agatha had stayed, or even 3:1 with Karen replacing Lance over happy mask.
    Gen 4's also only had one woman (Bertha), however you could argue that one was more balanced out by You Know Who being Champion. Plus, there weren't any previous female members who were deliberately dumped to make room for dudes.

    This is one of the many reasons why I hate Gen 2's E4. It was the most male-dominated E4 ever and for no good reason.

    Yeah you could put it that way, it's either the mentions on XY or OrAs about Unova breaks the whole thing. Maybe RS remakes weren't intended/decided during the development of XY, and they failed to catch the inconsistency. I wouldn't say XY or OrAs are rushed, but they are rather careless. There are other examples of Game Freak's carelessness, Cinccino is unable to learn Thief, despite it's pre-evo form, Minccino can. Leaf Stone can't be sell to the Stone Maniac at Icirrus Pokémon Center and more.

    Red and Green reboots, not remakes please. The story of Gen I is too boring and too loose (for my taste), the plot involvement of Legendary Pokémon either in the original Gen I or the remakes at Gen III are almost none. No, I think it's actually none. Not to mention that so called Kanto Pokédex's diversity issue is wider than a Wailmer's mouth.

    Agatha is also pretty outdated. They're all female interestingly enough...
    Hmmm, I wonder...

    I'm surprised that Lorelei has so few fans. You know back in FireRed she struck me as the most impressive of the E4 due to having the least copies of her mons, plus she was one of the most difficult (hard to imagine she was more so in Gen I according to you). Bruno was weak, Agatha could be destroyed with a good psychic type. Lance was the second hardest...I had to choose between taking ice types or electric types to defeat the original Kanto E4.
    You mean, Gen 1 E4. There is no "Kanto E4."

    Again, I think it goes back to her most recent appearance being 11 years ago now. FRLG are now older than many younger fans, themselves, are. It's literally impossible to even play a game with Lorelei in it if all you own is a DSi or 3DS. She also wasn't a particularly notable or important character in the games, not even to the extent that Kris and Green (the only other characters equally or more "outdated" than her) are.

    Lorelei doesn't really mean that much to all but the very oldest fans, and even then, she's still overshadowed by more popular/visible characters like Misty and Lance.

    Yeah it makes perfect sense that B2W2 and XY are part of the same time line. While OrAs has a great plot on its own, the timeline inconsistency with XY is crazy.

    It's obvious that the events of XY and OrAs supposed to be 10 years apart from each other's. However, the mention of Valerie, the appearance of Battle Chatelaine (claiming they just returned from Kalos) and other several things greatly messed up the timeline. It really gives this wrong impression(?) that the events of OrAs and XY happened closely.

    I guess that's what you get if 2 teams are working on different project; Masuda mentioned one team handled XY while the another making OrAs. :/

    If OrAs didn't include that stupid Royal Unova model at the Oceanic Museum, things wouldn't get this messy and Game Freak could have made an easy excuse by saying OrAs and RS's events did not occur at the same time: RS shares the same timeline with FRLG, while OrAs with XY. (See? That at least makes sense.)

    Important questions:
    Pixiliate Sylveon or Magic Bounce Espeon?
    What would you name for that female Eeveelution you have chosen?

    While everyone believed that the Kalos and OrAs Hoenn are one universe, I beg to differ. I believe Kalos' universe shares the same as the first 5 Generations, my reason is XY and OrAs' story just doesn't connect to each other:
    - Valerie shouldn't exist in OrAs, let alone her Gym.
    Fairy-types are recent discoveries on the XY era, which takes place at least 10 years after the events in the Hoenn region. A Fairy Girl on Route 123 says she'll make a Fairy-type Gym before Valerie gets to in the Hoenn region.
    - PSS and Super Training shouldn't exist in Hoenn either.
    Clemont invented the systems, he wasn't born or perhaps just a toddler during the events of OrAs.

    Are the Gen VI games trying to tell us they took place in the same time frame? Probably. But that creates more flaw, for example Oceanic Museum says Royal Unova is still in construction, while a NPC says Team Plasma was making news a while back in the Unova region.

Wow I can't beleive that I'll be completing my third year on this site already...time sure went by quick. I remember joining at the time when Gen V speculation was picking up. Now we're in the middle of Gen VI speculation! During that time I made friends, and lost some too. Even then I found these three past years on here to be fun overall. I hope that the next three years will be better than these past three .

So I'm thinking of making several new characters for a story I plan on publishing but it's hard to think of many unique characters so I thought that I should ask PC members for ideas since they are so different themselves. Please fill in this layout if you want to help me make characters for this story.
