The trailer had the male. Big whoop. Statisctically (as stated before) Pokemon is played by more boys than girls. The girls are a very small portion of the fan base. They are going to use a Male character to highlight because that is what's going to sell. They obviously did NOT do this with Gens 3 and 4 with Anime promotion.
Please stop harping on lack of female cause not its turning into straight up sexism based on biased opinions and is turning insulting.
moving on... the part with team plasma on the boat... where do you guys think they were going? what was the point of the boat?
