They could have done a better job on a couple of them I'll admit but it won't put me off playing the games, I'll just play the female protagonist.

The female protagonist is awesome. Leggings + skirt = win. Looks like Pokemon's finally making a return to form with well-designed trainers. The guy looks kind of meh, but then again they've never looked all that appealing to me.

Really though, the new girl could give Leaf a run for her money for the title of "My Favorite Pokemon Character." And coming from me, that really means something.

Amazing how she alone suddenly has me a LOT more excited for B2/W2.

    I like the new boy's design a bit better than ol' Hilbert's, but the girl... what is she wearing?? I mean, it's cute, but it's so impractical. Gamefreak adds more ice to Unova...and then decide that the girl needs a short skirt? (Slightly better than Dawn, I guess. At least she has tights.) I guess it doesn't matter because it's just a game and no one has to actually climb mountains, walk through tall grass, or worry about their rival seeing up their skirt... but still.

    And the new gym leader has some intense pants going on...

    All in all, I always feel like the updated games are just a new way to get money out of us...and sadly, they probably willl get money out of me. I'm sure the games will be as fun as any of the previous ones.

      I'm sick of people calling the male gay and girl looking. I mean have people not watched anime or played games? lots of boys look girly and nobody jumps on them for it.

        The girl isn't wearing a skirt, it's like shorts that look like skirts. It's these.

        They're really cute and ads to her creativity.

          No. He looks more like his younger brother.

            I absolutely refuse to play as the male

            All male protagonists are supposed to have their hair enclosed under a hat

            he looks like an action anime character

            I hope their names are better then *shudder* Hilda/Hilbert

            The Water Gym Leader anyone? I find his tan line so unusual. Who tans their face/stomach and leave the rest down (including feet!) normal? Otherwise I think he's interesting somehow.

            Yeah...I have no clue what's going on there. Maybe they were trying to make him appear like he's literally always on the beach? o_O Or maybe Unova got hit by greenhouse gases, affecting the gym leaders!

            You should see my grandpa
            But yeah, that tan line is WEIRD. Like, dang. But he seems like hed be a sweetheart! <3

            I can't help but notice that EVERY character revealed so far has RIDICULOUS hair. The shiny glitter in the Water dude's hair is pretty nifty, BUT MY GOSH.

              I like the new girl much more than I liked Hilda...something about the new girl reminds me of Blue/Leaf, maybe it's the skirt and hair color...either way she looks awesome. I don't mind that the boy looks like an action anime character, actually it makes him better in my eyes .

                Yes his tan line is really weird but generic and that's cool. Also I wonder if he reminds anyone else of Finnick Odair?

                I like the youthful look of Homika, she's like a rebellious teenager. Having a band in her garage, etc.

                ...water leader has glitter? omg. But um, on the note of hair, didn't B/W have weird hair too? Or at least iirc it did. B2W2's isn't that weird other than the professor and the poison leader imo. :x

                Oh yeah, they all had weird hair, but not AS weird as what they have shown us so far in the new games. But the professor takes the cake as far as the ODDEST hair of them all.

                Two years later, Unova set a trend on the hair. Spiffy!

                No but seriously, the hairstyles don't bother me that much. These new characters are lookin' fine!

                  The hair styles look fine to me too, well except for the prof's...it's even stranger than Iris' and N's...

                  The water gym leader isn't tan i the feet? I never noticed that before...

                      The highlight of the character designs are the gym-leaders!

                      She is my favorite of the two; presumed to be a poison-type gym leader?


                      I really like the fin-legging-swimsuit; presumed to be the water gym leader?


                      The hero sprites have mixed reviews. MALE<FEMALE
                      The male sprite is AWFUL. He is a dweeb with a horrible haircut and leggings. The female sprite is probably one of the most interesting and appealing design for a heroine. I like the frilled mini-skirt, black leggings, and that crazy hair!

                        (responding to -ty-) this is the first time I have seen the male character for the sequel games and I must say......Its going to take a while for me to get used to that god awful design! But the female character is to die for! The water gym leader is a little weird looking, but the poison type leader looks SOOOOOOOO cool. They did a good job with the female characters but not the male ones? Interesting





                        Volcarona FTW! Oh, and Larvesta, he is cool too...

                          I LOVE the new female protagonist, but the male ..... meh.
                          I like the new gym leaders too. Overall good for me, just not WHAZAM! You know what I mean?

                          The first time I saw the water type gym leader I was like:

                          Honestly, I wish the new water gym leader had a shirt. I've never liked the shrtless gym leaders/Elite Four members.

                          I agree, but it would make sense for a male water type Gym Leader to be shirtless. Guys don't really swim around in their shirts.

                          I think his character design is great, but if he was that white, (and the tan line is to show what he's about) they could have at least made him a little bit darker than from his previous skin tone. GF just had to go full on dark and leave very obvious tan lines. :[

                          I do. ;;

                          His tanlines (like the hair in the game), is ridiculous, but most certainly not unrealistic. xD
                          I kind of like that he's shirtless -le blush-, though. It does give that much more...idk, I just feelt hat if he's a swimmer who's also a water type leader, he should be in a swimsuit, which he is.

                          And dang, he's the first shirtless character who doesn't have a gut the size of the city they live in, you woulda thought people would have appreciated that much, at least. xD

                            I like the chick with the guitar. Other than that, meh. Oh, yes, the male protagonist. He looks like some kind of... SWEET TRANSVESTITE FROM TRANSSEXUAL TRANSYLVANIA!

                            Ahem, sorry about that, his clothes are just a bit...odd. I'd prefer if the guy with the black jewfro was the protagonist, but whatever. At least Pokemon from previous gens are catchable.

                              I wonder if these new characters will be integrated into the Manga series as well.. I like the look of the other ones better actually, usually the female character is more appealing to me too but this time the male looks cooler. Nice hair bro! Will name him Jericho.
