There used to be black people in Pokemon, but that was considered racist so they changed their skin to purple.

Anyway, does the color of a person's skin or a pokemon trainer's skin matter? We're all people.

you are 100% correct. maybe we'd have more diverse people in pokemon if we didn't have so many 'barriers' outside of Japan keeping it from happening. The Japanese probably wouldn't mind putting other ethnicities in their games (obviously) so this may be the main reason why there aren't more.

Replace "black" with "fat mexican lady with 23 kids that live off of child support".

Im black, and frankly I really dont care if there are black people in pokemon or not. Although there are dark skinned leaders/E4/brains in pokemon. It would be fun to see a more diverse trainer system though :D

I agree with you. I actually don't see many Asians in any entertainment really (even ones that tried to break into US..like se7en)..anyways, that is off-topic and so is what you are speaking of. We are talking about pokemon, not American made video games. No one is complaining they were just giving their thoughts..sheeshhhhhh

Honestly, this is just starting to get off-topic. I knew this thread would go off tracks to begin with but I gave it the benefit of the doubt. I guess I was right... closing now.
