I'm just so happy that there's a main character who's blonde (by default).

I was waiting soooo longer. Seriously.

- Leaf [Brunette]
- Crystal [Black Hair]
- May [Brunette]
- Dawn [Blue Hair]
- Lyra [Brunette]
- Hilda [Brunette]
- Rosa [Brunette]

And now, finally, finally! T.T There's a blonde!

And I take it's because they've actually left Japan and went for their fanfave country, France, where they believe people are all blonde, blue-eyed and gorgeous They just saved the best for their fanboy country.

    A little late on this, but I actually love the new protagonists a lot! Especially the girl; she gives a fresher look compared to the previous female protagonists. And character customization! I might have to get a 3DS after all haha.

    The characters look much older though in my opinion, they could easily be 16. Also their appearance looks more European. Hmm.

    I don't think they look that much older than previous trainers?
    Like the protagonists from DPPt look older to me than the new ones from X/Y.

      These protags are obviously teenagers though, just look at the size of em, here's a gif showing their sizes compared to Lucas, with heads all the same size.

      I like the fact that they're older than previous protagonists, I suppose it can target more of the teenage market.

        I imagine they're around the same age as the characters from Black & White.

          I can see a system not unlike Pokemon yellow, where certain battles you win or lose effect the outcome of Eevee's evolution, only it would probably be dependant on questions the rival would ask you.

          But the rival is not the opposite-gendered protagonist (OGP). They may play a small role, but BW & BW2 both only used the OGP on the Battle Subway. That's not to say that this can not change, but obviously Nintendo didn't back away from that format at all in BW2, and I see no reason to expect the OGP having more significance in this game.

          I'm sticking with my co-op theory. I may be wrong but maybe if people start talking about it Nintendo will patch it in there last minute. lol

            Patching in co-op last minute would suck... I'd rather them have developed co-op from the start so its implemented everywhere, but if it is a last minute patch I guess they will have community feedback.

            Maybe we can get unique clothing in a pokecash shop that gives us random items everyday and using SpotPass, we will be able to share clothing choices with others (they can buy the same things you can that day). I mean, SpotPass has to be in there for something, why not clothing? Maybe a new evolving mechanic is built into SpotPass (which sucks for us with nobody nearby that has it). I guess that is getting off topic a bit... Someone start a SpotPass thread. xD

              That is quite a difference in size, i didn't think it would be that much!
              I guess they might be somewhat older then, but they'll still be around 16/17

                I feel like they're making the protagonists older and more mature in style to appeal to Pokemon's maturing fanbase. I don't know any stats, but I'm sure a majority of Pokemon sales are older fans of previous generations. I'm not complaining though. Being a teenager, it feels awesome to be a character my age and that looks almost exactly like me!

                Just a reminder please to keep the discussion more towards player customisation than thoughts on the protagonists themselves, which can be done in this thread.

                I suppose being able to change some details is neat, but it's never been a feature that I cared much for in any game.

                  With more customization and player flexibility they can capture Animal Crossing fans and the like.

                  In GSC, her hair is blue, but blue = black.

                  Which means Dawn has black hair, too, but because of just how blue it is (and the fact it came out in later generations where "black" was feasible without looking wonky), she truly has "blue" hair.

                  I've been hoping for a blonde protagonist since GSC. I hated not having a MC that shared my hair colour I feel the same way about Harvest Moon, too! Which is why More Friends of Mineral Town is one of my favourites of the series - blonde girl!

                    Hmm I see. I've been waiting for a blonde protag too!!! I am brunette but omg, everytime a new gen is announced I hope for a blonde protaganist, and we finally got not one, but TWO (Although the males isn't default ) I do hope we can customize the hair color more thouroughly than just blone, platinum blonde and brunette though. I hope we get a wide selection of colors to choose from. We haven't had a ginger protaganist yet either

                    Worth noting that you could also owe that to art style differences. They've never, despite the Black & White characters being noticeably older-looking, outright stated the player's ages.

                    I guess I have to say, I should've taken the mirror at the start of the first trailer as a hint. And plus, with StreetPass, they'd definitely run out of excuses to not have anything like customization because you'd inevitably pass a lot of potential trainers who would look the same.

                    Since there will be clothing and accessoires available as well, then i guess there could be more haircuts and colors to chose from?
                    I wonder if every city will have like a store where you can buy this sort of stuff, or if you unlock it by accomplishing something??

                      I think the three character choices are just presets and once you select one it will pan out and let you customize stuff further... Here's hoping...

                        What kind of outfits and accessories are you hoping to see in X and Y as you play through it? plus maybe even more could be added with DLC in the eshop.

                          I bet there we be clothing choices (for the player) , I'm hoping for some cameo clothing, like Majora's mask, Mario's hat, or a tee-shirt with my Mi's face on it

                            Maybe we can get some special clothes based on past players? Maybe even some anime characters? Like the male character can have Red and Ethan's clothes thoughout the years,and both versions of Brandon and Lucas', and those of Nate and Hilbert as well. while the Female character can have their female counterparts, maybe even a black dress as a tribute to Blue (female) from Pokémon special and as a tribute to the female character who was going to be in Red and Green.

                              I`d like to see where exactly we get these clothes from and for what purposes. Maybe casual shops in cities? Itd make sense since Europe is pretty into fashion I guess.

                                I personally hope for some basic stuff like different pants, shirts and hats where I can change the R/B/G levels of it...

                                Also it would be cool and smart to do cross promo clothing with the game... Like buying Mario could unlock some Mario like clothing... Something that doesn't look strange in the world, but makes sense for it to be unlocked by that game; like overalls for Mario.

                                In Animal Crossing you can create custom designs/prints on your clothing, and that would be an awesome idea implemented into X/Y. You could share the designs with your friends or even others over wi-fi.

                                Also, I like hiff8's idea. Cameo clothing (like Zelda, Mario, etc.) would be cool to see, but I honestly doubt that would happen. After all, it's just a handheld game and the feature would be mostly useless. But we'll see.
