Now we know what the protagonists look like, which one will you choose? What will you name yourself in-game? AND WHY?

The female protagonist is a definite! In Black and White I decided to switch things up a bit and name myself something different other than my real name, but I decided I didn't like that. So this time for sure, I'm just going to go ahead and give the protagonist my name. :B

Male protagonist because I'm a guy and I can't choose the rival. :[
I'll name him Dominic because that's what I name all of my files. :P

    Picking the male, calling him either Ventus or Matsuri, and picking Oshawott as my starter since I already went with Tepig once and Snivy's took weak for me.

      Male cause I always start with the male. His name be Xander as I usually do.

      When I get a second copy I'll make the Girl and name her Usagi.

      Female, for sure. This guy looks less generic than BW!hero but that hair, lmao. No thanks. The girl is so cute though. I love her.

      Name will probably be Erica, as usual. But maybe I'll go ahead and name myself something different. Chances are I'll just decide when I'm on the name select screen.

      I'll choose the girl this time around since I've chosen the guy so many times even in Platinum when I should of chosen the girl. I'll probably name her Eiko or Porom since the female protagonist seems to remind me of those two and because they are some of my favourite female characters from Final Fantasy.

        The girl has the better design, again, but as I'm a guy, I'm choosing the male protagonist. Naming it after myself, as usual.

        Answering my own thread! For me, I'm going with the girl and "Forever", to parallel what I did in Black and White. :) Plus she's so awesome looking!

        I will pick the girl as I am a girl in reality and I love the female PC designs better than the males.

        As for the name, I might name her Nichole (my real name) again or do her official name (if it is revealed).

          I like the girl but I'm picking the guy and his name shall be Jon.

          OFF TOPIC: I'm so jealous of all the in-game trainers named Jonathan.

            Girl! And I'll probably give her the same name I give my females - Ashe, or Ashelia. *FFXII fangirl*

              I want to say the girl, but I'm probably going to pick the guy at the last second

              As for the name, I'll go with either RedJ or Tetsuya, as I usually do. Unless I DO pick the female, in which case, I'm not sure.

              Both of the hairstyles are pretty...ridiculous, but I'll go for the guy, of course. He's still got that charm that Hilbert had. <3

                I plan on getting at least both B2 and W2 and on the original Black, I played as a boy, and named him after me (Bryant) and on the original White, I played as a girl and named her after my friend (Ashley). I plan to alternate it this time and B2 be a girl, who I am not sure and W2 as a boy and if I don't name it after my friend (Josh), then either after me (Bryant or Bry Guy) or someone that's a guy.

                  Female, as per usual. I'll only think of a name at the time the text menu comes up, since I don't use a specific one across all Pokemon games.

                  I always go with the gender I am so Male. Even though I find the males hair style to be a bit silly looking. If I could I'd much rather be the rival though.

                    I'll proably play as the boy. I think his hair is alright, it's simply that hat that's making it stick out...

                    I'll definitely choose a boy....even though I'm more fond of the female's and the rival's design. I think the male protagonist kind of took an L in character design! :D

                    Even though I have issues with the guy's hair, I'm still playing as him because I've always played as the guy in past games.

                    I'mma go with the guy, because I am one. Although if I ever start my file again I'll probably go as the girl just to shake things up a bit- but going as the guy, first.
                    I usually name my character either my own real-life name, or Gira, or the name of the game (as in the Manga- ie. Blue, Gold, Ruby, White, etc). But I can't really call my character "White 2", so I may go with Gira.
