Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black 2 & White 2.

    It would be cool and I would rather play as him than the new player characters.

      I don't think so. He has a lot of fanbase, but he also has a lot of potential personality. If you made him your character, he wouldn't talk, and it wouldn't really work. Plus it wouldn't really make any sense.

        It would be interesting to play as him. We could learn some things about him that weren't included in Black and White. I'm just not sure if he has a long role story.

        I.. don't think so, at all xD He's an interesting rival, but at the end of the day, that's like asking "Should Wally be playable?" or "Should Blue be playable?". It'd be different, but... there's no real reason to make it so, as it'd be straying from the fact that the person you play as never speaks or anything.

        No, it would just steer away from the whole storyline IMO.

          Proably not...unless they did some wi-fi event feature in which you play as N temporary...but that's unlikely it itself...

          I adore N, but I don't think he'd make a good playable character. Mainly due to the fact that the main character doesn't talk; this wouldn't suit N at all! Whilst it would be cool to be him at some point, I think he's better off being either a rival or another character in the game that you'll get to interact with and watch develop rather than someone you can play as. :3

          Although this is a more appropriate game to play N as opposed to playing as him in an RS remake like you suggested, I agree with what's been said. N is a great character and making him the playable character takes away from his personality and you wouldn't get to hear anything from him since the playable character never talks. You give personality to the playable character by the team you chose, their moves, how you play the game, etc. N has a personality already. Why play as him and take that away from him?

          Agreeing with Syd here, N has his own story and events that shouldn't be blown off by being playable and silent just like all of the other protagonists. I'd rather be able to battle him and have the sequels finish his story, than to be him and finish it off ourselves.

            Well, technically, who ever said that N HAD to be silent? Yes, yes, hit me with that "traditional Pokemon protagonist silent personality" stuff. Yes it would be different. Yes, it might mess up things. However, if Game Freak found out a way to work this out then I would like that. It would add a lot of content if this happened. Sure you might be startled to find a text box with actual words instead of the regular-
            ".... ....... ..... ..... .... .... .... ..... ...
            .... .... .... ...... ..... ..... ... .... ......"
            but hey, it would be intriguing to see this-
            "Yeah I'm N and haters gonna hate me and my beautiful Rubix Cube."
            No wait, THIS-
            "So I planned to show the world who I, N, wanted for the innocent Pokemon of this world."
            This could be Post-Game like a sort of flashback for N. Or a Wi-Fi event as Magmaruby and Aquasapphire said. Or some random event in the game.
            Also, if this was for the whole game then no. I just want to see this as extra content, not for the whole game.

              I could see it as some sort of flashback thing....Actually, I can definitely see GAME FREAK sticking it in there briefly as something caused by a Pokemon, like Musharna made your character, like, see N's past or something....GAME FREAK seems to be fond of Pokemon doing random things like that, and they did a vaguely similar thing with Munna....?

              One long ridiculous sentence....

                IMO part of the charms of Pokemon is that your team can be anything you want, and part of N's charm is that his team is always fluid reflecting the locations natural fauna. It would make N less special.

                    Forget that, I want to capture him and train him for battle.

                    I would love to play as N but I know it would kill his story. He is the real spice of BW and turning him into our marionette who can't talk would be pretty sad. It would have more sense if the game plot wasn't about becoming a champion and catching'em all.

                    Naa, I think the whole point of the Pokemon games is you play someone unknown and most people pretend to be themselves. I think it adds restrictions if they make it a known character.

                    Also, it is more of a spin off to play as N.

                      While N won't be playable, that doesn't mean this thread should be locked. This is about whether N would make a good player character, which he most likely would not. At least for B2/W2.

                        Hmmm, well i don't know if we see N again after the credit's roll. But IMHO, i wouldn't mind playing N.

                        I mean, really, how many of you honestly believe that just because no chat bubble pops up, that our character never actually speaks a word to anyone. Granted it's not scripted, it's just assumed.

                        Yes, i must agree with everyone that N has quite the personality, and story! But maybe that would be half of the fun in and of itself! Finding out more about his story, his interactions, maybe meet other members of his family!

                        I think everyone say's NO because N has been one of their favorite personalities. And they don't want to mess that up. But I'd say GO FOR IT!

                          Am I the only one who didn't like N? It was certainly interesting that he had such a tortured backstory, but none of that really endeared me to him, if I'm being honest. So, I don't think he should be playable either... but I guess I'm less sorry for that fact than most people here.

                            Yeah N should be a playable character, but so should Cilan!

So, I don't think he should be playable either... but I guess I'm less sorry for that fact than most people here.
                            No. I hated N, with a strong, burning passion. For him to be a playable character...meh. No. I would skip that part if it were optional.

                            Id rather not play as N. he's an interesting and popular character, but the protagonists never talk, which would be bad for an interesting character like N, it would take his personality away.

                              I dont know, i didn't dislike him. But in a way, i feel his story was similar to none other than MICHAEL JACKSON!

                              I mean, Mike's father basically made him and his siblings become famous. They had no childhood. I don't know N's back story enough, but the room for him in the castle reminded me of him having his own personal "Neverland". While his unapproving father sat behind the scenes manipulating him like a puppet.

                                No, I just feel like a lot of players wouldn't feel like they could stay true to his true gentle and serious nature.
