I know, I know, I know that they're not the same person. But they really, really should be, I mean, I know technically Kris didn't exist for Gold and Silver- which are ultimately the ones that were remade. But when such obvious influences of Crystal are present in HeartGold and SoulSilver, I absolutely think that Kris should have been the female protagonist in HGSS.
Lyra is obviously based on Kris anyway; even though her name is Lyra, that's just because Pokémon hasn't done the name-characters-after-the-game thing since.. Well, since Red and Blue. So I'm still going to keep insisting that Lyra is just a poorly represented Kris. And so I'm absolutely fine with the both of them. :P

I'm working on an album of Pokémon-inspired music. Check out the Soundcloud link if you're interested!

Kris, without a doubt. I was really upset when I saw the trainer renders of HG/SS for the first time, learning that she had been replaced. Was it really necessary? Kris wasn't just a character, she was a statement. You could finally play as a female character in Pokémon. And they just cast her aside, and we haven't heard from her since. Sad.
Pain is only temporary, giving up lasts forever.

I liked Kris more. Lyra's cute, but Kris has coolness.

Kris forever definitely. She's badass and cooler than Gold himself

Kris. Lyra seems entirely out of place and her outfit looks like something a six year old girl would wear. On the other hand, Kris is a cool, level-headed rival with a fiery passion to become a successful Pokemon trainer. To add on to the pros column, her design looks better, and would've looked amazing in HGSS. Unfortunately, that dream won't become a reality :[

Kris all the way. I was disappointed when I didn't see the blue hair and so I chose Gold instead. Lyra sucks.

This thread hasn't had a post since March so it's considered a dead thread; sorry about that, guys. I guess none of the higher staff have seen it until now. :( Feel free to remake it if an active thread on this doesn't already exist!
