    The Poison-type leader appears to be the first gym leader. If my eyes don't fool me she has two Pokémon, and her gym looks like a "thrashed" version of the Striaton Gym.

    The player characters are OK. Although the male would be better without all that hair and that swimsuit-thingy under his shorts.

    I hope the professor turns out to be an antagonist towards the end, just like Ghetsis's actual ambition in BW.

    The rival gives me this Silver-vibe, it seems to me that he'll get some pretty powerful Pokémon. Too much hair, again! At least this rival looks like a guy.

    I hope the Dratini-line is part of the regional Pokédex. It's nice to see some Gen 1 Pokémon, anyway.

      Does the Water Gym leader remind anyone else of Finnick Odair?

        I like the characters designs, the male character's design sorta is similar to Brendan's Emerald design, sorta, just barely, but I always liked that design and so I like this one too, also the girl looks alot more casual.

          meh, I'm not feeling the designs, it seems they went back to kids as protagonists (please tell me I'm wrong on this, either that, or these guys are older than they look). the girl looks ok (interesting hair!, a Princess Leia reference? ) , but has (so far) nowhere near the wow factor Touko had. the boy's hair looks a mess.

          the increased pokedex is better, I suppose, but I want to see how "johto-ized" they made Unova.

          also, I wonder if you would fight the old BW protagonists a la Red in Mt Silver.

            I think the characters look pretty neat. I'm with the majority here in that I also really like the female's design, but I actually don't mind the male's design either. Though it makes me wonder if Hilbert also has massive hair underneath his hat, haha.

            The rival looks more rival-esque than the buddy-buddy vibe Cheren and Bianca gave me at first, so that's cool I guess. The professor looks too menacing to not be secretly evil, haha. Also, that hair.

            As for the Gym Leaders... well, they look like Gym Leaders. Nothing too surprising design-wise.

            GAH! They all look fantastic. The protagonists do remind me a lot of Touya and Touko, but I'm guessing there isn't any real connection.

            I love the boys hair, it's all whacky. The girls design is cute, and the hair. The Rival looks awesome and sneaky, gah - and THE HAIR!

            The other characters look interesting too. The researcher especially - I think someone mentioned he was the main antagonist or something (idk if that's been confirmed), which would be cool. The darked skinned guy with the blue eyes looks really cute, plus that poison gym leader looks really fun.

              I already quite like the female trainer, my opinion on the male trainer on the other hand is still kind of....ehh, in the first scan i saw of him, I actually thought he was Hilda in a cool tomboy outfit << The rival, when I initially saw him I knew he was the rival, nothing I dislike, but I don't have much of an opinion on him yet.

                I actually like Hilbert/ Hilda more than the new Playable characters, now there's still more to see in Pokemon smash.

                  My opinions:

                  -Male Scientist: Looks cliche and mysterious. Now only if he could take that blue strand off, then he'd look like Germany with glasses, and Hetalia fans can squee in peace.
                  -Water-type Gym Leader: A simple, yet briliant, design. Reminds me of a cross between Finnick from The Hunger Games and Sokka from Avatar: The Last Airbender.
                  -Guitarist Gym Leader: If they give ehr a cutsey personality, I hate her. If they give her a snooty personality, it's genius.
                  -Rival: Sex/bed-hair? He should comb it down to look more handsome, like Shinra drom Durarara!!. Aside from that, neat overall design. I could live without the pahnypack, though...
                  -Female PC: Cutsey design. Looks adorable, in contrast to Hilda's sensual design. But it still irks me how Sugimori's doing all he can to prevent panty-shots.
                  -Male PC: Get a haircut or GTFO.

                  That's what I think of them, but that's just me. Other people will surely have different ideas than mine. XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

                  As for the time-setting, it's wonderful to see that everything hasn't stayed the same, to be honest. This will make things far more easier to work with, as far as sequels go. And considering how half of the region's frozen, it's understandable that the oldies migrated down to the pre-E4 areas, making them available early. The development team thinks of everything! XDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD

                    As for the player characters and rival...meh. I can't say I care too much for them- the only one that particularly sticks out to me is Sailor Mo'n CWUTIDIDTHAR the female character. I may end up playing as her, I dunno.

                      I actually like the design of the male character too. :O I much prefer his design to Lucas' and Hilberts anyway. The female protagonist looks pretty cool too, and the rival looks pretty awesome- in my opinion, he looks like he could be a serious 'Gary/Silver' type of rival, unlike the recent trend of friendly rivals we've been having (May/Brendan, Wally, Barry, Cheren, Bianca etc.) So yeah, hopefully that'll be good. :D

                      And the gym leaders look pretty epic. :O Their designs seem pretty memorable, and they clearly look like they'd be that type of gym leader, so me gusta. :D Also, I don't really have an opinion on the professor yet. :s

                        Old gen pokemon,nice..The one that researches pokemon strength is like cheren before.
                        I want to see hoenn pokemon in the game,since hoenn and unova are similar.
                        And if the rival would steal like silver it would be cool.

                          Wait, what's that thing on the female's back? That pink thing? Is that connected to the straps from inside her shirt?

                          Do the straps of her bra make a pink bow on her back??????? ...Is that what they're into these days?

                          I can understand why people may dislike them but I love them! Especially the Poison type Gym Leader, there aren't many leaders that specialise in Poison and they did an excellent choice choosing that.

                            By the way, just made this height comparison between Hilbert and the male protag, in case, to me they look roughly the same size so the new protags are still teenagers.

                              I thought they could be named Boltan and Flara in reference to Black Kyurem's electricity and White Kyurem's fire. However I'm not sure if they would use that names' theme because only Gym Leaders seem to be named after typings.

                              I think the guy looks worse, but the chick looks better. Her hair doesn't look like a clump of poop anymore, so that's always nice. But what the HECK did they do to the guy? lmao wow. The Poison Gym Leader looks freaking crazy. I don't know how I should feel about that...like. Seriously crazy. She will murder me. MURDER. ME. The lab guy looks pretty cool though. Kinda of like if Ein from Colosseum had a kid with Wallace from RSE, if that makes sense. Speaking of Wallace, the Water guy. Ummm...yeah, I have no comment haha. The rival has fuzzy hair and looks like a snoot. So I like him.

                              @Nica: If that's really a bathing suit then omg. That makes what she's wearing make more sense now haha. Loooooove it. Looks like the guy has a diving suit under him though haha.

                                I really don't like the boy... the girl however does look decent.
                                Well, I liked the original Black and White more -even though there names were stupid-.
                                To be honest I don't really care about the names, because all my characters are named after me.
                                Let's just hope I can famously name my rival 'I am'.

                                It's a music hall like the kind you would go to to listen to a rock band. It's what the scans say and if you look closely that's the design of it in the picture.

                                  I think rocker girl being poison type leader is reference to Alice Cooper - Poison

                                  I prefer Hilbert to this new guy as for the females it's pretty even, they both look great.

                                  fklgjdflgj Homika <333 The new Poison type gym leader sounds amazing! She seems like an exact clone of me (but female :3). She's a guitar playing Poison type enthusiast who's name is derived from a hamster and loves wearing black/purple - this is exactly what I would be in the Pokemon world. x] But yeah, much love for the new releases, I'm actually very excited about the games now!
