I definitely like the female protagonist more than the male and I will probably be playing as her :3

I'd have to agree that the male protagonist does look too much like Hilbert, whose design I didn't really care for in the first place. That said, I'll still probably play as him, since I always name the player after myself.

I also find it interesting that they both have goggles on. I wonder if they serve any significance later on in the games.

Regardless of design, I'll always play the female character but this time around... I'm not really huge on either of the designs, especially the boy. That boy is plaaaiiinnnn. The girl looks okay, she has pretty hair but I don't like the outfit. Oh well, no big quarrel. It's just my opinion lol. Creature design is my main concern :D

They're not goggles, they're shades, and they seem to be rather fashionable ones.

Worth pointing out that it's not the first time they reused the base colours for the trainers. Uninspired? Yes. But wait for the male trainer's art before you judge him too critically. :P

The girl definitely looks WAY different than previous female player characters...but that's a good thing! They are finally toying with new designs that people actually like, seems EVERYBODY wants to be a female this go-around! Wish I could say the same for HilbertClone...poor HilbertClone.

*Pshyuh!*

What was that? That's the sound of me taking a shot in the dark. Here it goes:

Trainer customization may become a reality. Why may this come to be? Well, there's the shot in the trailer of the protagonist looking into a full-length mirror. There could be only three good reasons for that:
1. To reveal his face indirectly before showing him off.
2. To help show off the 3D.
AND/OR (I'm crossing my fingers)
3. To show that clothing customization will be a possibility. Honestly, why else include a full-length mirror in the game? I hypothesize it's in the area where you change your clothing, whether that's your room or a store.

Some other things that support this argument. The games are clearly taking place (at least partially) in "France," which is a renowned fashion hub. Also, I have a feeling that 3D makes customization a more logical and sensible addition. Lastly, like nearly everyone has said, the male trainer is currently identical to Hilbert. I feel that this was just the default outfit Game Freak decided for the new character to wear for this trailer. The fact that only the two outfits are shown may simply be to keep certain features under wraps.

After all, this wouldn't be the first time for trainer customization! I think it's a possibility, but I doubt it's likelihood. Still, a trainer can dream, can't he?

I must say I was disappointed the way the male trainers model came out, but that could be just a place holder, because I think they are announcing it earlier then usual, they usually announce any new games in like the following year before.

am I the only one who feels that this year we will finally be able to customize our own character. Cause I mean the male protagonist looks a bit too generic, so there has to be something up, plus when I saw the trailer when the protagonist was standing next to the mirror something seems up

Legend Thriller, scroll up two posts from yours. Three posts from this one. Clearly you are not the only one to believe in the possibility of customization.

The male looks way to much Hilbert, like others have said. I don't really like either of them, but the girls pretty cute I guess. I'll probably still pick the male because it feels weird picking a female for me haha.

I'm hoping that we can heavily customize characters.
It's not that I've anything against girls, or that I'm sexist, but I always choose my gender; Boy.
The design looks like a Hilbert knock off, but hey 9 months to re do things, nothing is certain at this point.

Also girl; 11/10 would trade with.

I like the girl's design, although, yes, a bit formal. I do love that hat she wears. The boy looks a lot like the Pokemon Black and White male trainer, though.

I'll be annoyed if we can't customise them. It'll annoy me because I can't stand the male protagonist having sunglasses on his head, and never wearing them.

The female's hair looks... odd. She has a lot of it and looks like she tied it at the bottom which is strange? Idk I'm only thinking about this because I have a lot of hair and that is something I would never ever do! Her outfit does seem to fit with the region's theme, French, which kind of seems more formal than the rest?

The... male protagonist has almost the exact same color as the BW design but he is plainer and has weird sunglasses on his head. He just looks kinda odd, but I think they might be changing with the protagonists around a lot. Maybe they only released him like that so they could see what the fans thought? They could have just whipped up quick designs to use to show off the 3D gameplay.

I saw this art on tumblr that looks nice though! n_n (click for source)

I definitely like the girl protagonist more than the male one, he just seems too similar to BW. As for the girl, I actually like her design a lot, and idk if I'm the only one, but in the second pic of her, she kind of reminds me of May...

Male Player - Looks like Hilbert some posts have said that. Yes and no, Hilbert lacked glasses had a different hairstyle and face to this new character, however the clothing is nearly identical. Possibly a descendant?

Female Player - Does anyone else think she looks like a Blonde Gen V Pokemon Ranger? Just my opinion it just seem that's what they went for.

I believe it's called a..."loose ponytail?" I actually really have no idea...but Tifa from Final Fantasy 7 basically had her hair tied the same way. (I've tried tying mine like that once and it takes some time getting used to, lol!)



In other subjects, I don't know if anyone mentioned this but the female protagonist also has glasses on her hat. Any ideas on uses? I personally think they're just for show, like the scarves on Lucas, Dawn, and Barry.

Also, just an interesting glitch found on tumblr about the male protag's glasses: (large pics under the spoiler!)

That glitch is actually quite funny, but it'll probs be fixed by the time of the game's release, they do have another 9 months after all.
Also, I actually think the male protag resembles a certain other male protagonist from France, if only in face shape and hairstyle:

Ahh I really love the female's protagonist's design this time. I'd definitely play through as her, since I didn't find the male character too appealing, he didn't stand out and closely resembled Hilbert which was sort of disappointing and I thought the design lacked creativity, to be honest :<. I love the girl's one though, it's simple but effective, she does sort of resemble Leaf I have to agree, but her outfits and appearance stands out from the past few.

Male protagonist is meh, as usual.

However, the female is extremely attractive. Finally we get another Pokemon girl with an actual skirt instead of shorts. She does look like a more formal version of Leaf but in my case that is probably the biggest compliment I can give out. I am definitely going to be playing as her when these games come out. Only one minor gripe: Tights > thigh-highs. Other than that they did an excellent job with the heroine for these new games.

Customization would be nice but honestly isn't necessary, at least for the girl.

*I looked and didn't see a thread like this, so I'm sorry if there is!

So for each game we've gotten a bit of a backstory on the character. We know their hometown, we know that Red/Leaf have been rivals with Gary since birth, and that Ethan is good friends with Lyra. We know that Brendan's/May's father is Norman, and we know Lucas/Dawn's mother used to partake in contests. We know that Hilbert/Hilda are childhood friends with Cheren and Bianca, and we know that Rosa/Nate are friends with Hugh.

SO after that brief overview, we can see that we know very little about each main character's backstory. Do you think in X and Y we will learn more about the history of the Main Character? Do you personally want there to be more to the Main Character?

Bonus: Create your own backstory for the Main Character! :D
