I will choose Female and I'll name her Shay. I could choose Male and name him Jake. Meh... I'll just choose Female...

I like how the poll of this thread keeps at an equal constant. Both are the protagonists are cool! I'd choose the male without a doubt if I was a guy, even if the female's design looks better. I love the male protagonist's hair. :[ Great to see that there's a tie between them.

But since I'm a female and the better looking just goes in favor of my gender, I'm choosing her. 8)

I'm choosing male as always (I never have played the opposite) When I first saw his hair I coudn't help but laugh!
Anyways I'll probably name him either after myself or my username... Then again, I might call him Adam, its always the name I come up with when I can't decide

I really, really, really wish that the guy with the black jewfro was the male protagonist instead of the dolt that they chose. Seriously, a capri and leggings on a male protagonist? That's not at all transsexual. I'll choose him, though, simply so I can name him Frank, after Frank N. Furter, the "Sweet Transvestite".

I prefer the female protagonist, though, in terms of looks.

The guy with the jewfro is beast, though, too bad he's the rival instead of the protagonist.

I'll use the rivals default name, but I'll play as the female, and likely will name the file Sho, as per all of my others. xD; Unless I like her Japanese / English canon name enough to use one of them instead of my own name.

c-c-c-combo breaker on the poll.

Well, the way it's gone with most generations is: I'd pick the boy to start with, and then at some point in the future, play it through again as a girl.

Though, looking at the two new characters, I'm not exactly jumping for joy over the new male character's design. Just... ugh. So I may just end up picking the girl first this time.

As for the starter, it'll either be Snivy or Tepig.

Boy in Black 2 and girl in White 2, I think. That's what I did with the originals, anyway...

I have a strong feeling I'll be playing as a girl for the first time in the series. I just can't stand the boy's hat/hair. Who knows, though. Hopefully it'll grow on me. If I'm playing as a boy, he'll have my name (Ant, short for Anthony :\,) if I'm playing as a girl, she'll be called Mizuki.

It'll be the boy as always despite appearance. I always give the male protagonist my real name in all my files. As for starters it's Snivy, because despite being weak against the new Poison type gym leader, it's strong against the other newcomer.

All forum members BEWARE..!

Well, I love the girl protagonist. So totally choosing the girl. :D

I haven't decided on the name juuust yet. I named myself Megan in White, so maybe I'll be different and call myself Tasia...a variation of the name Anastasia. or if I'm obsessed with the Hunger Games still I'll name my character Primrose or Katniss. xD

The guy, merely because I've chiefly played as the guy for all of my life. The girl is better in terms of design, though.

I've always gone with the male character in the past, so I'll be keeping that tradition alive. I guess the reason for that is because I myself am male and so it only feels right. In all honesty, though, the boy is probably my least favourite of the male protagonists whereas the girl is my favourite of the female protagonists. That's not to say I don't like him, either... just his hair.

I'm going to be the boy just because I've always been the boy in every Poke'mon game since the original GameBoy.

I make games and write gaming discussion articles. Check them out!

Even though I'm a girl, I've mostly played as the male in the past pokemon games save for Pearl and Soul Silver. I actually really love the male's design, even though the girl's really cute. Don't have a thought on the name though, or what starter I'll choose this time.
