I wish they'd implement character customization and being able to choose what you say to people. Give the character a voice for crap's sake! This is the main reason I was so interested in ROM hacks.

Although extremely unlikely, I wouldn't mind it if there was some sort of department in the shopping mall in these games (assuming there is a mall, which there most likely would be), that's dedicated to giving you maximum customization in your character! Like, they would be selling (sun)glasses, probably scarves as well as other additional items that you could wear~!

I doubt most of the accessories (especially good ones) will be available in-game and easy to purchase with the in-game currency. Since the company is mostly looking for a reason for others to spend more money on their products, they might distribute some accessories through downloadable content.

Seems more reasonable, albeit slightly not at the same time, though I can see the intent behind it. Though I'm not sure if anyone would really be willing to fork over some real cash for virtual Pokemon accessories. D:

You'd be surprised. There are a lot of games online with absolutely no point at all that have people constantly spending money on accessories just to chat. I think Pokemon is popular enough for people to buy into it. Hell, I'd be into it if I could buy options like skin color. So long as they try to keep it away from being a complete money grab.

Depends on the prices, too. I'm hoping they're at least going to be reasonable, if anything? x_x That's what worries me the most, if anything else.

So, I think I suggested this back before Black and White came out, but I still think it would be a cool addition. What if we could unlock different costumes for our protagonists to use by doing different things in the game, sort of like C-gear skins or achievements or something similar. It wouldn't be that difficult to add, I would imagine, and I would really love it. What are your thoughts? What costumes would you like to see?

Let's see if we will need some games to get exclusive costumes.

This. C-gear skin is seldom a really noticeable change, since (in-game) it serves no role. However, if they distribute passwords to unlock certain costumes, let's say a Red-mod, it would be much more noticeable and more welcome since it adds a certain spice to playing, running around ala- Red.

I think there should be different outfits for different seasons (assuming if they cntinue season changes) like shorts for summer, woolen jackets/sweaters/blazers for winter etc.

I'd really, really like to see character customization because it's one of my favorite things in a lot of games with it, but I don't know if Game Freak will put in the effort for it.

I'd be happy even if it was just allowing for choosing between multiple models, assuming they're not all Hilbert.

That'd actually be a really cool thing to have. It was nice having Platinum with the protagonists being dressed up for the winter, but then that didn't even stretch out past the first few routes, and then all the snow was gone. Now that we have proper seasons, having clothing to change in to that varies with the weather would be awesome. I mean, I doubt someone would wear a very light jacket and shorts while it was winter out.

Trainer customization is something I'm slightly torn on. I look at the pros and cons of it and decide that way.

If it were my way, I'd have full customization for every aspect of the trainer, but then there's no identifiable protagonist, no one to base Ash off or put in the movies/Anime.
Game Freak, realistically, would have it so you have one base trainer, and have it so you can change the colour of their jeans/skirt/shorts, trainers, jacket and hair. I think different hats of slightly varying designs for the clothes aren't too much of a far stretch either.
They'd probably want to make it so no two trainers look the same so everyone has a distinctive design, but the character still resembles the base design enough.

Which is honestly why I think (albeit it would be the coolest thing ever) it's really unlikely for GF to introduce the feature into the games. Honestly though, you would've think that they would at least have some sort of change of heart by now, and at least try to introduce something new instead of re-hashing the same things for each and every generation, y'know?

But of course, we don't know what's going to happen for this gen, so hopefully they have something good up their sleeves. I'm just not that hopeful that character customization is one of them. x_x

Although I think it does make sense to pull trainers from the games to throw in the anime (Other than the obvious Gym Leaders and stuff, I mean characters like May as she was the female protagonist Gen 3), it also isn't absolutely necessary either. It's really not the far from the realm of possibility that the anime could just create entirely new characters from scratch. If the reasons that we're holding off on being able to customize our character is just because the anime needs to have a single character to pull from, then I think priorities should be re-evaluated. Although it's not a feature that's necessary or anything, it shouldn't be contingent on what the anime wants to do, especially since it comes out after the games.

tl;dr Inclusion of customization shouldn't care about what the anime wants to do

I'd personally take skin color and hair color over other forms of customization honestly, but that's just me. I wouldn't care as much if I was stuck with the same hairdo or clothes design so it would still basically be a model of the 'official' region's protagonist.

This is probably something that would be the lowest of priorities, if even considered at all, when it comes to what they'd do with something like this, but eh...one can dream.

I would love player customization. I have been wanting it for a long time. I usually like the protagonists of the games, but I would like to make the characters a little more like myself.

That's how I feel. Unlike many other games where there is a 'set' set character, the protagonists in Pokemon games are supposed to be more of a reflection of ourselves, the players. That's why I'm hoping to get some decent customization too.

You Probably wont be able to change cloths until end of the game or late game. Or watch it just be a cut scene.

CONFIRMED by the Pokémon Company. At certain points in the game we'll be able to get new accessories and outfits for our protagonists. We'll be able to go back and change our outfits whenever we like. Also, since the new camera angles show our characters close up and in detail, we'll be able to see their new outfits on them.

So, it looks like we won't only be able to just change skin color, eye color, and hair color after all!

Interesting. It makes sense how they're doing this, the character remains the same but you can get new outfits. It never occoured to me to have them customizable later.

Just saw this, and I literally couldn't be happier. From just the general accessories being around, plus I just saw that the skin color would be able to be modified, I am extremely pleased. It totally makes sense to take advantage of the new system and show off what it is really capable of. I don't think I could be happier with how this new generation is turning out.
