Player Customization
Did anyone else notice the first clip in the trailer where the player is standing in front of a mirror? Maybe this means we might finally get customization.. Hmmm

SolarAbusoru January 8th, 2013 3:54 AM

considering we're on 3D models now, it might be possible

Blue January 8th, 2013 3:58 AM

I didn't think of this, although the male protagonists looks like he's wearing standardized clothes.

OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire January 8th, 2013 4:02 AM

Also there's that building that appears around the female protag in the game that seems to come out of no where. So my guess is there's a certain about of customization.

Daydream January 8th, 2013 4:08 AM

I'm certainly hoping there is. The male protagonist just looks so... Plain. That prompts me to think that there may be customisation, i.e. he looks plain to be like a blank canvas sort of thing.

Hiroshi Sotomura January 8th, 2013 4:12 AM

Granted that he doesn't change costumes right now, if they do something like this, you'd probably see it hinted at in future trailers.

With 3D models it's certainly easier for them to do 3D models for every costume and even do DLC. Will they? I'd love it, but right now I doubt it.

Treecko January 8th, 2013 4:15 AM

I do hope so. While I do like the new male and female protagonist's designs, the male looks bland. Hopefully this is something they announce in the future.

Dillon_68 January 8th, 2013 5:15 AM

With the whole world being involved in the launch this time around, I would hope our characters would be unique individuals.

Aryan143 January 8th, 2013 6:42 AM

I think that it will be possible because of that scene but it could also be a starting scenario where we are starting our adventure and checking our clothes and other things.

Edward Elric January 8th, 2013 6:43 AM

It's something I have always wanted in the games, and now that we moved to 3DS, the possibility is higher!

curiousnathan January 8th, 2013 6:45 AM

Why not? Now in 3D there's plently of room to implement such a feature. And I'm pretty confident it will be very well received!

Pokemon Trainer Ethan January 8th, 2013 6:48 AM

They should let the player the change the character to someone that fits the player the orginal one looks ok but plain

Correspondence January 8th, 2013 7:06 AM

The male protagonist looks a lot like Hilbert so i'm hoping there is some kind of customization but it is doubtful.

Nakuzami January 8th, 2013 7:18 AM

Well, we're always hoping for customizable characters, but it never seems to happen. The day that they do do this, I will cheer.
However, now that they're using 3D models, it could happen. They did have customizable characters in Battle Revolution, after all.

Tox January 8th, 2013 7:35 AM

The style is very similar to Dragon Quest IX in which customization is available so hopefully they'll include it. It's quite difficult to give a detailed design to the characters of modeled like that. I doubt they have any big trainer sprites like in previous games since they wouldn't fit with the style of the game. If there was Sugi-style artwork of the protagonists, it'd probably be really plain. It's also odd that it wasn't included in the video. So yeah, I'm really hoping for customization here.

EDIT; As glitchguy mentioned, the protagonist looks suspiciously like Hilbert. Also, if you look closely at the video, the girl seems to have a very similar hairstyle to Iris in another colour. And also, the girl that's following the protagonist in the video has May's clothes and Rosa's hairstyle. Extremely suspicious, haha.

Pinkie-Dawn January 8th, 2013 7:44 AM

I'm only hoping for outfit customization rather than a customization of the protagonist's appearance, because there's a chance that Gen VI's protagonist, possibly the female trainer, will appear in the next Smash Bros. title to co-exist with Red and represent Gen VI with his default appearance rather than a random physical appearance. Sakurai wouldn't want to use a customizable character with no canon appearance. So I sincerely hope that this protagonist's appearance is his canon appearance.

Jinx January 8th, 2013 11:49 AM

oh i hope so! i was just talking to someone about this! it does seem more rpg looking because it is in 3D. that would be an excellent feature (:

이큐리 January 8th, 2013 11:57 AM

I've been waiting for them to let us customize our trainers. It would be a really fun feature.
Different outfits and accessories.

latioslegends January 8th, 2013 12:17 PM

Customization would certainly be a fun new mechanic. =]

While I'm not averse to the male protagonist (I skipped 5th gen) he doesn't really allure me. If they can allow us to alter his hair and clothing that would be fantastic. Not saying he needs pizzazz *Shot* but some minor customization tweaks to his attire would be appreciated.

I'm pretty sure she's standing in a gym; if you've noticed there's gym symbols next to her.

Utzipher January 8th, 2013 12:33 PM

I'm really impressed with the female design, but the male design is disappointing. It seems like brown hair, brown eyes, and that small town look is the trend. I'm all for customization - if so this game will be a real winner.

HeidiMoose January 8th, 2013 12:37 PM

I'm not counting on it, but it's definitely possible.

I would like to add that I'm pretty psyched the female protagonist looks as though she's a blonde. I've been waiting for that forever.

Customizable Characters?
*sorry if a thread like this has been made!

Do you think this feature will be included in the new games? If so, are you for it, or against it? It could be seen that adding this feature would lose the sense of... feeling at home in the game etc. But, it would allow player's their originality, and be a fun new feature, especially in 3D!

And are your for similar features? (like being able to buy clothes and change your outfit, etc) Elaborate! :D

Edit: oops, there's already a thread like this! Please delete or lock :D

Captain Fabio January 8th, 2013 1:26 PM

Merged into the Player Customisation thread.

Kura January 8th, 2013 1:28 PM

That would be pretty awesome. I think the clothing for the characters this time around is really plain so I hope they have options to spruce it up or maybe add accessories!
