Well the character is only a smart part of the game. I probably will play as the male character because he gets a higher chance of getting Male pokemon, So I can have a team of male. But I do agree that the main characters don't look...the greatest...

The part about the male protagonist that bothers me the most is... well... everything, actually. His hair looks like crap, his visor cap is stupid, his tights are just weird, his V-neck is awful, he's too short, and his eyes are the biggest I've ever seen on a Pokemon character.

Yes, he does look a bit...stupid. But I bet you can barely notice it when your actually playing the game.

Well the girl has pretty big eyes as well...both of them have the biggest eyes yet in the franchise...

The only really thing I can think of it that they haven't done anything to pull back the screen, so the back sprites are still all pixilated. Hopefully fixed for next generation

While I do notice the pixellation, I don't really see a technique that would improve it other than rendering three different back sprite sets for them to deal with the multiple sizes. Even if they pulled the view back or rearranged the Pokémon locations, you'd see pixels at one point or another.

Right now, the only real disappointment I have is that they're not 3DS titles. :/

I'm disappointed by the lack of no following feature and that this game isn't in the 3ds...though this being a true sequel makes up for that .

On the "bright" side, it's easy to pirate as a result and those people who are stuck with a DS don't need to deal with region locking.

Screw that, I want my SpotPass.

Actually, I'm quite glad that it's not on 3DS. The latest handheld I own is a DS Lite.
I would upgrade to 3DS but there aren't enough games out on it that I'm interested in and forking out money for a new handheld for just one game is a waste of money in my opinion.

The onyl gripe I have is that they still haven't implemented following Pokémon again since HG/SS. Oh well...

It isn't 3D. If it were, I would've told them to SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY. But, no, we need to get stuck with 2004 Graphics, crappy texturing and 2D pixelated sprites when tryingto make a psuedo 3D engine. This is truly the only disappointment- Black, White, Black 2 and White 2 look like they are DESIGNED for the 3DS- with the StreetPass-like features, the good implementation of 3D and so on. And getting Gift Cards through SpotPass would be NEAT.

The biggest disappointment so far, for me, is that they kept the Unova starters to begin with. :\

I was also disappointed, but only because I wanted them to start with new starters (aka new Pokemon) rather than B/W's. :( But oh well! Better than past generation Pokemon imo.

I'm kind of disappointed by this as well, but it makes every bit of sense for Game Freak to keep the same starters since it's still Generation V. My main reason for disappointment is the fact that I hated the Unova starters to begin with... (well, I agreed with Tepig)

Well if there weren't original pokemon in the game, it would be kinda boring since you would only have the new ones and the pokedex would even be that big.

About the starters, it's kinda of a dilemma for me. No, I didn't really like the starters they had in B/W, but at the same time, if I was asked to choose a different set of three starters for the game (just based on the Unova Pokedex), I probably wouldn't be able to do that either.

One of my big disappointments is the fact that we now have yet another shirtless Gym leader (the water dude). Bare chests in Pokemon games is something I haven't particularly cared for since Bruno.

If N doesn't appear in these games I will be very disappointed. v_v But if GF can make it up with an even greater plot/storyline, I'll be fine.

Yeah, N is such an amazing character. He made a huge impact on the series IMO.

I just assumed they would set it so that the screen would just stay pulled out when not attacking, so you see the whole pokemon in the frame.

But ya, It's not completely necessary.

If we were talking about Cynthia or Flannery this would be a totally different story.

I would actually rather that the trainers with nothing to flaunt should really keep their clothes on.

About the shirtless thing, sure it's kinda disappointing that they didn't put more clothes on him especially because of his weird tan, but tbh I'd be more disappointed if they didn't... since like, he's the water leader and all, plus the region seems water based etc. :x
