    I wonder if we'll then get outfits based on previous protagonists, and heck, we might even get costumes based on other Nintendo characters, I could imagine the blonde trainer to be put in a Link costume.

    I could actually see that happening. It'd definitely be a fun nod to Nintendo's other series instead of just having some more random outfits. Either way I'd be pleased, but that definitely seems like a fun way to throw some random cameos into the games without having to bring in the actual characters from different universes!

    I very much like it. It'll obviously make it easier to get immersed in the game. To be honest, I'll play as a male and I'll use the 'default' (til now) white skin/black hair, but it'll be cool to see what kind of clothes and other little things we'll have the option to add to the player!

      There was unused data for the BW1 protagonists to appear in BW2 as opponents for the PWT. It appeared that they were originally meant to be in the game but were removed for some unknown reason. I have two theories; either they wanted to stay true about the MCs being you and don't want Hillbert and Hilda's appearance to contradict their idea, or the spotlight was stolen by Red, the original MC.

        I honestly don't see why anyone would be against customizable hair/skin/eyes? It's all optional, and I'm sure the white/brown haired boy and the white/blonde strawberry blonde haired girl are the default canon characters

          I think pokemon.com just accidentally leaked further character customization (and possibly co-op gameplay.)


          Check out this picture. What do you see in the top-right corner? Why it's our female protagonist, with no hat, and a different hairstyle.

          It is definitely not the rival, because the rival would have the default appearance. It's not an NPC, because an NPC wouldn't use the same character model as the protagonist. I really believe this is co-op gameplay and additional customization right in front of our eyes.

          I severely doubt you're seeing co-op gameplay. It is more than likely similar to RSE where the unused protagonist is part of the storyline. Of course, the customization on here is more than likely there to just showcase that the customization capabilities are there. Besides, if they are going to put it in there then it'd be doubtful that the other protagonist as a NPC wouldn't use the functions as well.

            I have the complete opposite opinion to you lol. I really don't think the rival character will customize his/herself.

            Anyway at least this screenshot proves that there is more advanced character customization. I haven't seen anyone else mention it so I was pretty excited about it!

            I'm so excited about the fact there will be more to customize throughout the game!!
            This is a great addition, and I'm very anxious to see how far GF will go with this feature

            I really don't think there is going to be coop-play, that would just be too revolutionizing
            Why shouldn't the rival be able to customize his/herself? And don't forget this is still development material, who knows what they were testing

            Maybe you can customize the unused MC to be of "fitting" appearance to you?

            Like, when you go to customize your own character, later on the other MC asks your opinion about their dress. If you feel he/she should change, you could "make him/her over" and tah-dah, explanation for hatless unused MC.

            Just a thought.

              Random rival clothing choices... OMG I would love that... Rival looks different in everybody's game for the most part.

              I kind of said this already, but that would definitely cover why the other protagonist was shown wearing different clothing in this screenshot. If they have interactions with the player then it'd make sense that they might randomly have different customization options for them as well!

                I like the idea of it being random, but the idea of the partner asking how they look and then allowing you to dress them seems to make more sense to to what feature they would put in the game.

                I'm glad I can customize more than just eyes, skin ,and hair color. I can actually play as the boy without having to wear his hideous outfit. :) Hopefully I can change my outfit right before I actually get my starter at the very beginning. Can't wait to actually be able to have glasses for once.

                  I really want to be able to make the rivals appearance, so I can make him look stupid as possible

                  I also really want to be able to ditch the hat/sunglasses, I don't like them. That picture suggests maybe we will be able to!

                      I'll be keeping the sunglasses, they look trés chic
                      I'll most likely change the jacket for a hoodie though if that's available.

                      I'm really digging the glasses and the girls hat so far.
                      I actually really like the female's outfit in general, but I'm glad i'll be able to give the male a different set of clothes :D

                        Apologies if this has been asked before, but in regards to the hair colour and skin tones, can you mix and match them? For example, could I have the pale skin, but with the brown hair? Or would it have to be kept blonde? I hope there isn't a restriction and it can be mixed up. I'm really pleased with the customisation feature added but I'll be disappointed if you can't mix it around a bit.

I'm really pleased with the customisation feature added but I'll be disappointed if you can't mix it around a bit.
                          Nope, in regards to skin and hair colour, you only have 3 choices

                            I wasn't all that excited about X and Y at first, but now that the 3D-ness has grown on me, and I know I can also make a character of color... I'm sold.

                            Atleast everyone's character will look slightly different! I'm pretty content with the default appearance of both protagonists but I may change up the appearance slightly.

                            I feel like I will be spending a lot of time making my trainer look just right. And that's going to be even worse if we can customise our rivals. Although, I think the rivals will either have a random appearance, or that it will change depending on how you've customised your own character.

                            Part of me feels like it would be wrong to play without some form of headgear as a Pokémon protagonist, though.
