I wonder what Nintendo was thinking when they came up with the designs for Hilda/White. I hope I'm not breaking any rules here, and this is strictly for Entertainment purposes. But I find it as weird, that out of all combinations they could've came up with...they came up with this..

Originally I thought that a different approach was going to be taken by the developers considering how Summer from Guardian Signs looked a fair amount younger than most of the past playable characters. Hilda proved that wrong for the most part.

To be quite honest I'm not really too fond of her design, though I do find it fitting of the definition of her name (from the Germanic element hild, "battle."). And really her outfit just seems to stick out too much - especially in Nuvema town - or at least that's how I saw it.

I'm a Leaf fan for the most part. Leaf and Lyra are my favorite female playable characters.

I laughed harder than I should have at that image. For the most part, I like her and Dawn's design the most out of the playable female trainers.

Not only Hilda Desing, but also Skyla's.
Hilda will be fine with current upper attire, she's just need longer pant.
And Skyla, a pilot in bikini? are you kidding me Game Freak?!

I have no idea what they did with hilda but I think they made her more of an teenager than a 10 year old, but I would use hilbert than hilda.

I didn't like her design at all, and she definitely took away from my enjoyment of B/W. Her shorts are just... ugh, so ugly. They definitely need to go back to FR/LG for inspiration on female trainer designs... and I'd love if they made a female trainer with a frilly, cute dress instead of the tomboy style female trainer characters.

The image was removed. But basically her design was a shirt that slid through her tight little shorts. And they added a vest and a cap.

How bizarre..

The previous female characters' designs, while I have no problem with them whatsoever, were normal and cutesy. I personally feel that Hilda's tomboy-ish design is a pretty nice change in pace.

I don't really think it's her shirt slid through her shorts; it's her pockets coming out from under her shorts really.
Spoiler:

Just like in the examples above.

I don't like her like crazy either. Apparently, the formula of 10 years cute girls was better. Hilda....she looks like a busty teenager, it didn't appeal to me that much for some reason. However I was in love like crazy with all the others: Lyra, Dawn, May etc...

Hm, I like her design. Yes, the shorts are short but other than that. I really dislike the idea of playing as a 10 yrs old kid, so I think it's only good they made her look older. Maybe she is, at least I imagine her to be about 15 or so. Just my opinion of course.

Lyra's design is still my favorite though!

Well, May didn't exactly look like 10 years old either, and I loved that char. I think my favourite female char will always by Krys though. And I absolutely despise Lyra btw.

Anyways, on-topic, I don't really like her design that much. The colours for one, I can't stand baby pink, and especially not in combination with white. Actually if she'd have the same colour cap as Hilbert, it would make it ten times better imo.

I actually quite like her design but I don't really like her shorts. The pockets are just... too long? >n<; And her name is weird too. Hilda, seriously? Why did they choose that name? DDD: Touko is hell lot better than Hilda imo. :/

I actually quite like her design. In fact, I may like Hilda even more than my old favorite playable female character, Kris. Personally, I saw her as a huge improvement after Lyra, who I generally don't really like, and wasn't even aware that Hilda's design wasn't particularly liked by the fandom. :/

I must tell you that any protagonist from any game never have their age explicitly stated except the old Red, where his age is 11 years old. So I always assume that the protagonist age can be ranged from 13 to 16. And 15 to 17 for BW protagonist.

You can blame this so called "horrible" design on western clothing fashion. The only part of that design I don't like is the shorts, but I guess that is marketing to get more teens playing pokemon again.

I really like her design tbh. The male protagonist, oh God there is something that doesn't look right about him. Touko in-game though looks awesome when she's running, lol, defs best female protagonist design imo. :x

So, instead of make the story more complicated, or add a side story, they decide to give more revealing clothes to the female character just to attract more teens to play?

It sells. Tbh, you say 'add story' as if the kind of people that would play a game for a girl in short shorts are the kind of people that care at all about story. A lot of teens, the majority I'd wager, care more about killkillkill than storyline, that's why CoD and Halo are so popular.

It's so sad to see how the gaming world have fallen deep these days
Well, at elast they didn't add shooter element to Pokemon.
But, I'm still mad at Skyla inappropriate outfit as a pilot just to attract more teens(if its true, although the chance are pretty high considering her speciality as flying type not water). There are many attractive character without being need to expose many skins or wearing a mini shorts.

Yes, I agree with you. She has the coolest design of all the female characters and those mini-shorts and her bag make her awesome! I guess Hilda was made to attract more teens to the Pokemon franchise.

Plus, her name contains hild, meaning "battle".

Ok, she might wear "Cool" looking outfits, but I don't know if we think the right but...we don't feel it is right. At least I don't. I do understand that there are always 2 sides on a debate so I don't feel wrong. Anyway, Personally, the older characters, were better. Hilda....well, all I can say is that she wasn't better FOR ME. I don't want to say she was bad, because in my dictionary, Pokemon never included something horrible to me, its just that she isn't better than the previous ones. I gotta say, the pale skin creeps me out most xD
