Oh, I looked up the names for the new gym leaders and Homika seems to be an alternate name of the Japanese name for the strychnine tree. Yeah, pretty poisonous there.

I love all the character designs, and for once I especially like the rival's design over rivals past. The female one looks cool while the the male has a Emerald-Brandon thing going on with his attire (long shorts over pants) Kinda funny seeing how most of the region is frozen over and that's what they are wearing? XD Really now!?

I like the way the male characters look, though it really wouldn't hurt them to do something with that wild hair. As for the female player... super sexy! :D

Male PC - He actually looks pretty cool! The hair is wild, but I think that's a good thing. Makes him unique!

Female PC - Very cutesy girl. I'd say she has the cutest design of all the female PCs.

Rival - Very cool lookin' dude. His face seems to say "Bring it on." I like the idea of having a rival that has that kind of "Let's do this!" attitude!

Gym Leaders - The guy is okay, but I'm likin' the rocker chick! Maybe it's the metalhead in me, but girl + guitar + Pokemon battle = awesome!
Prof/Doc - He has a name, but I can't remember it. Anyway, looks good. Can't decide what I think about him though, his facial expression makes him difficult to figure out, because he doesn't look as friendly as most of the other Profs. do, but he doesn't seem definitely evil either...hmm....

Overall, the characters are great! I was expecting new PCs because of B2/W2 being sequels, but it's nice to see some other new characters too! The PCs look younger than the ones from B/W, but it doesn't bother me. I don't think they're too similar to Hilbert and Hilda. And their outfits are unique as well, though I doubt that actually mean anything about the games.

Thinking about it after seeing the scans for a few hours....

I'm definitely digging the new rival. He looks calm and collected, but I feel as he has an explosive, yet cocky personality.

And this may be the first time I'm perferring the female player character to play as rather than the male....his design really doesn't scream to me....and like I mentioned before looks like a Emerald-Brendan expy...

I LOVE the new protags, even though the male's hair looks a little strange haha, I like the whole beach/swimming theme and the girl is just so much better than Hilda imo.

Calling dibs on Akuroma being evil. And not because of his hair.

I would suggest it because of the "aku" (as in, dark) in his name.

The designs for the new mcs make me wanna cry and vomit at the same time in all honesty, I knew the protags for HG/SS looked young but after B&W I expected the mcs to be at least 13 or 14. They look like 8 year old drug mules ready to go to Seaworld more than anything else if you ask me and the new rival looks like the prom night dumpster bastard baby of Sasuke and Vanitas if anything lol. That and the new prof looks like a peedofile too but that's just me nitpicking there.

<Obviously not very pleased with the new designs very much.

Is it weird that I actually love his hair? To be honest, I think he looks better than Hilbert.

But ugh, seeing all of these new characters makes me want the games. Right. Now. !!

Nice catch, I felt a bit the same, I'm suspicious of him.

Though, my reason was originally his hair. xD;

Professor aside, I love the new characters.

You can clearly tell from my theme who's my favorite. :PP

These characters completely rejuvenate my desire to play Pokémon and have made me pick up my DS and finally get around through playing play through #6 or whatever it was of my White version.

I love the new gym leaders.

I hate the male and female protagonists.

I like the professor guy and the rival.

No I agree with you on that it looks better than Hilbert's haha (how much does that say about his hair then lol). I can see myself liking it in some time though, just needs some getting used to and I know because I already liked them when I saw them, more than the BW protags.

And I DON'T like Homika, I don't get what the craze is over her.

For me it was the clothes behind his coat. It looks awfully similar to Team Plasma's clothing style.

Aw, but the protagonists look so awesome! Why do you hate them?

I thought he was evil mainly because of the peacock thing, no normal character would have a peacock growth coming out of his head. :x I also think the rival is slightly evil too but mainly because I don't like how he looks.

I for one love the researcher. I like the mysterious aura he has, the wacky slick streak and the electric blue of his undershirt. My favorite character so far.

The female PC is my fave, I love her hair.

I'm using her in my avatar/signature right now.

The female: At first I didn't like her cause I wanted Hilda to be the girl for the sequel, but now the new girl grew on me. I didn't like Hilda at first cause I was on the Lyra band wagon, but I grew to like Hilda. Lyra is still my favorite Protagonist (male or female), but Hilda and new girl (who I call Serena cause of Sailor Moon) are also awesome.

The male: He looks cool, like someone said earlier, he looks like Hilbert's son, but I already assume the new protagonists are younger relatives to Hilda/Hilbert like younger siblings or younger cousins. He seems like his sprite would be nice.

The rival: His hair is definitely neat, kinda have a cool-fro going on. Plus his smirk look makes him look tough and cool. I approve of him.

The chick with the bass: She is rocking a bass so that's a plus. Plus she has the punk rock look going on. I am not sure if she is also a rival or whatever, but I like her style.

One thing I can say about all of the new characters:
...the hair...is so ridiculous.
But, I love the designs so far. The girl is cute, the guy is cute, the rival looks cool, the supposed evil team looks neat, and the professor is cool looking.

To be honest, I'm really loving the direction of the style new characters are being brought into. The hair isn't that crazy! It's like a trend set for Unova and I like it, haha. :J

They match what they represent. Or at least, their clothes/facial expressions give off impressions very well.

I like the look of the new characters so far!

From the trailer it looks like the Protagonist as well as that researcher guy are sort of celebrities? Going by their appearance on stage in front of hundreds of people, which would be interesting.

Gotta admit, boy character's hair doesn't look that bad after seeing gameplay in trailer. His hair in sprite reminds me of Brendan's cap in sprite because it looks kinda like white hair.

Characters are pretty cool but I dislike how with every new generation the legendaries start to look so similar to the previous, and they all have this metallic look they don't even remind me of pokemon anymore.
Miss the old articuno/zapdos/moltres days :'(
