Male the first time around, since I tend to like the design of the male protagonists over the female's in Pokémon games.
Second time I chose the female character and customized her hair and looks more because I didn't really change anything with the male character besides his clothing.

I pick the girl, because surprise I am a girl.

My X trainer's in-game name is Nichole (my real name duh) and I barely customize her a lot outside of clothing probably because I love her default appearance so much. It's always been a tradition for me playing as the girl trainer on my main version, and I ain't stopping it anytime soon.

I picked male, but when I'm going to buy pokemon Y, I will choose female because it has a variety of clothes, and I always wanted to customize my "soul mate" XD

Male, I always pick male for my first play through of a generation. I'm playing as myself, so that makes sense.

I'll most likely play as a female for the sequel. I tend to create a persona for sequel/third games.

I chose female. I always choose my gender lol. I don't really like giving people mixed signals from my past experiences in the MMORPG world.But if its one of my favorite games I won't care like Sora or Cloud!

I've gone with female since it was an option and I remember being sad I couldn't be female in gen1. This time I went with Goo because it's just easier when the name people call you is your OT name.

I love the female characters on all the games and always played them, though I am a male in real life! The way I see it I would rather stare at a females backside for hours instead of a males

Styxx OUT!

For my X playthrough, I played as the female character because majority of the time when I have the choice, I'll always choose to play as my actual gender. Nicknamed her Milly, short for her real name Milouette :3 To be honest, I probably won't ever restart my game, but I would be interested in playing as the male the second time through to experience any similarities/differences myself, if any.

Ever since I saw the male trainer for X/Y, I loved his design and knew I'd be playing as him. It also helps that he's blond and wandering around Pokemon!France, which reminds me of Takeru Takaishi from Digimon Adventure/02. But I named the character in X/Y Michael because St. Michael is one of my favorite saints, and went with the standard nickname of "Mike."

X/Y, no matter what, will always be played using Michael...wearing green. It's weird to start a new game and see him in blue.

I play as the girl because I always play as the girl when given a choice, and because they typically have better designs. I named her "Lisa" as that's my go-to name. "Queen Lisa" is the "nickname" that i gave to the "Four Stooges" (the "rivals") so they can have fun bowing at my feet and acknowledging me as their queen every time they show up

Although when I restart in X (Y's my main game) I might experiment with something like "JLVWNNOOOO" as the nickname.

The male one of course, it would feel awkward if I chose the female.

I picked Male first, but I started my newest playthrough as Serena to see the customization options. I gotta say, she has much better taste than the Male character XD

Female named Janna because that's my real name. I always go with females since I prefer playing as my gender.. and customizing the girl characters usually tends to be more fun. :-D

I always go with female, except I chose male once in gen V.

The male is pretty plain-looking imo, and the clothes are also kind of lacking. D:
I don't know why, but I never go with my own name in Pokemon games. I chose Mio, and my nickname is Li'l Mio. :D

When I (re)start a game, I always like to play as a girl and name myself as my name would be in real life I always seem to get fascinated by the fact I like to represent myself in the game as much as how I look and dress irl

I remember the good old days when Pokemon Crystal came out, and you could play as a girl for the first time! I was thrilled to do so (finally), not playing as a boy like there are NO female trainers ...
But, with Pokemon X and Y we even can customize our trainers (brilliant imo), so now it's even more nice to play almost as "myself" in-game, I absolutely love it!! :3

Male because I always pick male my first time (except in Pearl because I liked Dawn's design more). I find it hard to play as the female sometimes because I'm no good at nicknames, and I would never think of anything good! That being said, I almost always name my character Kevin (irl name), but I have been switching around with cool names I like: Sal, Zak (also my brother's name), Connor, etc.

When I first played Y, I played as a girl and named my character Exi. I made the nickname 'Master' because it made me giggle like the immature teen I am. xD My second playthrough, I named my character Lightning and nicknamed her Light, because I really like Lightning Farron from FF13. .////.

When I got X (which was recently) I chose to start as a guy, named him Trygger, and then nicknamed him Try-kun. My friend suggested it. So far, I'm not liking the clothes/hair options for the boys. It's pretty bland. xD

I chose female because I realized that throughout every Pokemon game I played, male was my choice so I decided to change it up a notch.

By this time, i restarted mi pokemon X game three times. My first play-through i chose male and named my character after my real name, probably because in some childish way everytime i play pokemon id like to imagine the real me is there...that's kinda how the magic of pokemon has worked for me since pokemon fire red. Second time i chose the female character just for the kicks but somehow didnt really feel comfortable with her by the fact i didnt really feel into the game so by the third gymbadge i restarted. Third and my competitive playtrough chose male, my nickname and boy im into pokemon X now. (how ever if i were to get Y, id go with the girl)
