    I've been debating to who to begin White 2 with and seeing as I'm not gender biased; I could not find a clear answer.

    - Who is your favorite?
    - Why?

      A poll would be nice. Anyway, I've always preferred Nate, and male characters in general, because I found the Pink background in Rosa's Menu quite disturbing, unlike the blue.

      Rosa, because I'm a girl in reality so it's fitting I always chose female characters and her design is obviously better. I love her hairstyle as well so it fits! And I don't mind the pink menu, I'm used to being the female trainer a lot.

      Rosa. Even though I'm male, Nate's hair is very unappealing to me. Plus, Rosa has the best design for a female protagonist in Pokemon to me.

      No.

      Pick what you want. I normally pick my the character's gender based on my gender. Regardless of character design. It's the easiest way to go when facing a tough character-picking decision. And if you don't feel your gender related character is someone you like, then the opposite is your winner.

        I pick Nate ONLY because I am male, and I usually pick male everytime I play Pokemon. The only exception is that I MIGHT pick Dawn for Diamond/Pearl/Platinum... But for B2W2, I would personally go with Nate.

          I've played each one once - Nate on B2 and Rosa on W2. I really don't have a preference between the two. The one notable difference between them, IMO, is who they end up flirting over the phone with - Curtis for Rosa and Yancy for Nate. Being male, I sort of enjoyed watching the relationship with Yancy unfold when I played Nate, and while it doesn't particularly creep me out (since I don't make believe that I'm the game character anyway) the budding relationship between Rosa and Curtis doesn't engage me much either.

            I picked Nate so I could play as my own gender, but lived with it as a grudge. I cannot get over how weird his hair is! So if you are gender neutral I'd say save yourself the weird character design and pick Rosa!

            I usually play as the boy. But in this game I play as Rosa. Not because I like her design or anything, but because I get to date Curtis. <3
            Other than that I'd go with nate. His hair is actually a billion times better than Rosa's. But then again everything for the girl character is pink, so...yeah. <3

              I would have included a poll, however, I'm new here and still unsure of how things work.

              Interesting! Most of you find Nate's hair unappealing? I see Rosa's as off-putting.

                Both are atrocious design wise if you ask me but if I had to pick one it would be Rosa since she made me vomit upon seeing her design slightly less than I did when I first saw Nate's design.

                They had striking resemblances to Hilbert & Hilda but I much prefered Rosa's design.

                I simply chose Nate to match the gender, having done so since HG/SS. Before the release of HG/SS, I always chose Dawn, Green, May, and Kris as the players just for the heck of it.

                  I prefer Rosa, even though i am a guy, but for Fire Red, Ruby, and Red I choose the male characters.

                    I prefer Rosa for two reasons...one because I seem to find a lot of things adorable, including her.

                    Two is the hair. Even if they're both pretty bad, I just do NOT like Nate's at all.

                      I don't really have preference, since I play as both the female and male characters. And I'm not really fond to either design so it makes it hard to answer.

                          I've always chosen the male, and I plan to choose the male in 6th gen, too. Yet I chose Rosa for BW2 for the following reasons:

                          1. This was the first time I purchased a sequel/3rdversion. I wanted to make my playthrough as different as possible from BW1.
                          2. The male's appearance bugged me. Neither his hair or his shorts.
                          3. The female's appearance, on the other hand was appealing. ("⌒∇⌒")

                          It kinda bugs me that the male character is automatically associated with blue, and the girl with pink, however. I don't mind their clothing, but do the inventory bag and even the pencil while saving also have to be that scheme? With upcoming character customization, I'm hoping that genders won't be auto-assigned colors.

                            I prefer Rosa, but I don't like the pink menu. Therefore I've always picked Nate.

                            Even though I'm a guy, I like Rosa's design just as much as Nate's.

                            Oh hey look, a poll!

                            Rosa because she's adorable and I love her hairstyle. :) Nate's hair isn't.. the best haha. He is cute though!

                              Nate because I'm a boy and my name's Nathan. It was an easy choice, also I'd feel weird playing as a girl.

                                Rosa. Rosa's clothes seem to be really interesting design-wise compared to nate's.
                                For example, the swimsuit like covering on her legs looks more appealing than nate's, with reference to the sugimori art rather than the sprite art. Also, Rosa looks better with the visor, Nate doesn't need one imo since his hair looks like it can stand alone without a cap.

                                p.s. I've been basing off my OT's from famous artists, and since most new artists are female, it wasn't surprising that I choose Rosa to start b2/w2.

                                  I picked Nate. All that pink with Rosa disturbs me. Even if she has the better design. So much pink...
