We have screenies of the girl in two different outfits. Maybe that means we can pick the clothes we want our characters to wear. The Hilbert getup may just be a placeholder as well, or merely a default choice.

EDIT: Upon closer inspection, it appears that I didn't look close enough the first time. The girl is wearing the same outfit in both screens. Whoops!

I hope we have a Father figure in this game, we've only ever had this happen once and that was in RSE so it would be nice for a change. In fact I wonder if they decide to replace the Mom with the Dad.

It's hard to judge the protagonists from what we've seen so far. The male protagonist looks to be extremely bland in his design. While for the female, we haven't really gotten a clear shot of her yet. Although I can't stop thinking of Hilbert when I see the new guy, I would actually say I like his style a lot better. Maybe it's the shades. I don't know.

Hopefully the artwork for them come out sometime soon.

A father figure for the protagonists would be nice actually.

I love them both! The female looks so pretty but she still is practical and not inappropriately dressed. She does look a bit like Leaf, so that will make Leaf's fangirls/boys happy. I'm loving that hat.

I really like the guy too. He looks like Hilbert, like everyone said, but I really like Hilbert/Black because reasons so yeah the new guy is cool.

If I ever do get the games I'll play as the girl, but I have no 3ds so I won't be getting these anytime soon.

I don't think they'll include a backstory for the main character, because it seems that Nintendo made them silent so that we could fill in our own ideas for them instead of someone else deciding for us. That's what I like.. anyway.

I'd have to learn more about the story before writing a biography for the character :3

I'm going to play as the male character when Pokémon X and Y are released. I think the designs of the characters are really stunning, even though the male character looks similar to Hilbert in Pokémon Black/White.

The female looks totally bombastic!

The male is just disappointing... :/

I'm definitely playing as her, I don't know about you. I love the design this time around.

The male, though, looks kind of like BW's protagonist.




What do you think? Who are you going to play as? Love or hate the new designs?
I think I might still play as the male character, he doesn't look that much like Hilbert, it's just those colors, bleh. But I might do a playthrough with the female, she looks amazing. BTW, is it just me or do they seem like they're French? I swear the region looks like France to me xD

So, can we be safe to assume like in BW, the protagonist looks much older than a 10 year old? At least, the sprites to me reflect that~

The Female protagonist looks like the Female Ranger trainer in Pokemon Black/White.

The female design looks pretty cool and she fits the whole France-based region. She looked older than the other protagonists(Touko looked 12 or 14, and May looked 12). And I did find a drawing of her that depicts their appearance that I found of Tumblr:

Ya I thought that immediately. They're going for the older thing like Unova has been doing.

I really hope that's what their proper character art looks like. I don't really like their sprites -that- much but if their character art was like that I'd be okay with it. :)

The protagonists look to be somewhat in their mid-teens, at least? o_o; Somewhere around there...

I thought I was the only one that thought the male looked a lot like Hilbert.

When I first saw the Male Protagonist for Black and White, I didn't like the way he looked, but then as I played more, I was like...this dude is pretty cool. So I think the male for Pokemon X & Y will grow on me as well.

Even though those are sunglasses and not goggles, they still make me think they were kidnapped from Digimon XD; (Then again, in Tamers Henry/Jenrya and Rika/Ruki had sunglasses...)

Regardless, I like both the designs; the male's more than the female's especially. And, since it looks like her hair can be either blonde or brown (like, it seems kinda dirty blonde-ish) I hope it's blonde since we've never had any blonde protags. before :C

I liked Hilbert in B/W. I like the look of both protagonists, and like every game, I'll be playing as the boy. I hope that both protagonists meet each other, and that they are both friends.

Gosh the female protagonist is extremely lovely.
I love how simple and elegant she looks! I can already say she has my favorite design out of all of the female protagonists. <333

Though... I can't say much for the male. .^.; He looks too simple... and I can definitely say that he is at the bottom of my list when it comes to favorite male protagonists.
Sorta hoping they do some extra tweaks and stuff to him before they release the game... I really want to like him. ;^;

Yeah I'd say so, they definitely look like teenagers, probs around 16?

Actually idk, B/W's looked around 16, these two look even older... would 18 be too crazy? :x Still better than the 10 year olds of the past though imo.

I was thinking, what if you could pick what trainer class you are at the beginning of the game, (Like Ace Trainer, Ranger, Bug Catcher, etc.)? Do you think that would be cool?
In my opinion, that'd be a cool addition.

It'd be a pretty cool feature, but it won't happen because GameFreak wants you to be your own kind of trainer, and since you're usually involved in an important event during the game's play through, it'd be kind of weird to have the world saved by a bug catcher.

I wish it would though. That'd be fun.

Well maybe it could be an end-of-the-game feature.

You might be able to customize your trainer. The male trainer has glasses on his head in one photo and its off in another.. Maybe not a lot of customizables. But it might be there! But i will be choosing the female because the male looks just like the B&W character.
