After seeing the official Artwork, I do like both protagonists for sure but I prefer the female. I think it's because the male has a similar appearance to Hilbert and Nate whereas the female isn't comparable to any of the previous female protagonists, she's also the first to have blonde hair too.

    I'm trying to think of a possible theme that they could gain names from, since Karos is based on France, maybe a theme such as companionship, in which case, these 2 names might be possible (found on 20000-names.com)
    Lewin for the male (an english transcribed anglo-saxon name, meaning "Dear Friend")
    Cara for the female (english derived from italian or irish, means "Beloved" or "Friendship")

    I like the male protagonist, though I agree he looks too much like the previous guys from Gen V. I don't know, maybe a different color scheme would've helped, plus I feel like he looks a bit plain compared to the female protagonist, whose design I love, so I'll definitely chose her.

    What I'm more intrigued about is their bracelets. I first noticed it on the girl's wrist, and thought it was an accessory, but actually the guy wears one too. A new communication device? I think so, and it goes really well with the new Pokedex design, which I heard will use holograms, so I think the bracelets will as well.

      They should be named Xavier and Yyvette :D Or Xander and Yolanda.

          I adore the female protagonist SO much. I love the customization that's being added to this game.

          The girl reminds me of Leaf with her long hair, hat, pleated skirt, and long socks, although she's so much trendier and adorable.

          I really love the female this time around! I haven't enjoyed one since Dawn (BW & B2/W2 were OK). This girl's really cute and the fact I can customize to my hair colour is <3

          A subtle change but still well-appreciated!

          Boy is OK. Haven't liked a guy protagonist since G/S/C.

            Yvette and Xavier seems just perfect for them.

            Yvette sounds really nice, don't know about Xavier though...not french enough xD

            I'm really excited too see if we are going to be able to customize more throughout the game than just hair and skin tone. Having different outfits or accessoires would be amazing :D

              His name could work as Xavier, since it comes from Saint Francis Xavier, a Jesuit priest. The Jesuits were formed in France in 1534, right outside Paris. It's a stretch for a reference, but it's there.

              Still don't have a favorite of the two protagonists, especially when looking at their default look. Which is a first, as typically I can easily pick between the boy and the girl.

                Xavier is actually a very French name. Yvette and Xavier would be perfect for them imo!

                I hope you can mix and match the skin tones and hair colors too, because not every really fair-skinned girl/boy has super blonde hair and not ever darker complected girl/boy has black hair.

                I like those names, very fitting for the games in many aspects.

                  And BTW Xavier is pronounced Zav-ee-yeh for those who don't know

                    But yeah, I hope the other protagonist is your rival, and then you have a childhood friend as another rival. One of them should become champion, and the other rival should do something awesome. If the rival isn't the champion, they should TOTALLY give the champion a legendary, like the other version mascot.

                      I'm still doubting their names will begin with X and Y, it didn't happen with Crystal, Ruby/Sapph/Emer, D/P/Pt, HG/SS, B/W or B2/W2 so doubt it'd start here, they'll use names that are part of a theme.

                        Seems like the fake artwork I posted before in this thread was spot-on the protagonists actual designs. Anyone think that the female trainer has a disproportionate body anatomy?

                          So I've been pronouncing it right all this time, cool. Usually I hear Eks-say-vee-yer.
                          Perhaps they the two characters will have nature related names as this region seems full of nature.

                              She doesn't, the skirt is maybe a bit taller than it should be, but I'm sure it will be more clear in the official release

                              Compared to some last generations female protagonist I don't find her very disproportionate. I mean, she may be skinnier than a typical girl of that age, but as stated, it's pretty typical for manga/anime to portray their characters like that.

                                You can see both the Male and Female protagonist in the same picture.

                                And the female don't have her hat.

                                I'd definitively say that's the female protagonist rather than an NPC. It has been said that at certain points in-game you can get new accessories and outfits for your character which could explain the lack of her wearing a hat.

                                Is it just me, or does the protag artwork look like it's been drawn by Sugimori again rather than Oumura? Does anyone have any information on that?
