    The protagonists look very generic, even by Pokemon standards, like they're not even trying. I know Japan is very liberal with how young characters look, hence why Ash looks older than an actual 10 year old (or alternatively, how Jotaro Kujo from Jojo's Bizarre Adventure is 17 and looks much MUCH older than that), but the protagonists look more like they're around the age of Youngster Joey. Not only that, but the female protagonist looks like a gender-swapped version of the male protagonist, which just comes off as lazy to me.

    Eh, they're okay. I was kind of hoping we wouldn't be playing literal 11 year olds again. =/ Was really hoping we'd just play as an older Red & Leaf. Oh well.

      I love them, but I'm a huge fan of the super cute chibi style.

      every accomplishment starts with the decision to try

        The player characters are fairly uninteresting in terms of clothing,
        their eyes however do, look extremely expressive.
        We might still get some customization! Again, the games haven't been released quite yet!

          Cute, but kind of on the fence. I like the cutesy art-style, but I also enjoy seeing the older looking protagionists we have seen since Generation 5. This could be just me though.

          Oh wait, that's me. :wink-right-eye:

          I don't mind the protagonists' design, given that I like their young and cute look, and seems to have a bit of adventurous vibe.
