I'd like to hear music from all games. I liked how you could listen to the Team Rocket theme in B/W.

I did like the fact they had female Champions in most of the recent games (girl power yay!) but maybe if we were to have another male, it should be someone more like Steven since most of the past male Champions were too similar in terms of character.

Agreed. I think they should make one cool male Pokemon Champion if they want to make one.

I would like a Champion like Steven. Cool, calm, collected, intelligent and uses great strategies and has a tough team. I'd like someone who you feel like you could really look up to.
    Like I said earlier, a Steven esque champ would be cool.

    I think having the professor as the champion would be too confusing, an ex-champion however...

    Yeah the person telling you to go out on your journey just so they can beat you? Kinda doesn't make sense. :( This is mainly because I see the professor as more of a mentor than anything really

    Plus, I don't see the professor having enough time for both things.

    Nah, it doesn't suit the professor to have both roles of a Professor and a Champion. It's much more suited to a childhood friend/rival or someone who meets up with you several times throughout your adventure.

    Yeah plus it's more motivational if someone you watched grow and went with on a journey grew up to be the champion. :)

    This may or may not resemble the events in Black and White where we had to battle N after he had defeated Alder, but what if we had the evil organization's leader as the region's champion?

    It shouldn't have to play out the same way as Black and White. Instead, this champion ended up becoming corrupted at some point in his time as the region's champ and only wanted to grow more powerful. In doing so he formulated his own organization and searched out new ways for power - genetically enhanced ways. Maybe he had even grown up with a mother or father who was a scientist in Pokémon genetics. He plays nice with the people and the protagonist, but secretly he has been doing some very dark things behind everyone's back and it isn't known until we discover he's the leader of said organization.

    Which probably wouldn't happen until after we defeat the Elite 4, because if it happened any time before that, then the League probably wouldn't welcome him back.

    Idk, it feels too much like Pokémon Colosseum tbh.

    Hmmm this is unrelated to the champions, but I wanted to add in that I'm extremely excited about hearing more rumours, rather than actually information? I mean I love information and all, but the stuff that comes out of rumours and the things you can hope for is just so much more exciting. I mean, will we get Pokemon rumours? :3 And soon?? I love images of Pokemon rumours from like CoroCoro idc if they're fake but daym they're exciting. Actually I hope we get fake leaks or really early leaks of CoroCoro next month just because EXCITING.

      The champs have been quite varied in personality in imo.
      Blue- Jerkish childhood friend
      Red-...
      Lance- Calm but can kick butt when he has to (well all of them can)
      Steven- Cool, and relaxed stone obsessive rich boy
      Wallace- Likes beauty and elegance
      Cynthia- Relaxed, likes myths and going to resorts
      Alder- Is like a grandfather
      Iris- Peppy, and cheerful but can get angry if one messes with Pokemon.

      Maybe we can have a champ who's sort of a loner making the player want to learn more about her/him.

      I think it's intentional that they make the Champions with different personalities and background, it gives us more of a diversity mixture. It will be interesting to see how they decide to portray the new champion.

      I would love it if the new champion would be the leader of the evil organization! Though this adds the extra challenge of not only beating the elite 4, but the evil organization's leader as well~! Would this evil leader be another Giovanni, perhaps(since Giovanni was the last gym leader in Kanto)? Or maybe someone more sinister...

        Maybe the champ will be King...though N was sort of like that seeing how he beat Alder in BW and called himself the new champion of Unova irc.

This way you get to choose if you want to fight them or not, without having to click the run button 10 times every 5 minutes.

            You don't need random encounter to get surprised of getting a rare Pokemon nor does do you need to it to reward patience. **** just seeing it in the overworld alone is a surprise on its own, and if they don't want you to catch it easily it can run away instead of trying to attack you. I know in Persona 3 when you find a rare shadow it'll run away right when it sees you.

            Why don't we compromise over this and think about what the Pokémon would be like if its monsters popped out of the overworld's grass just before the game switched into battle mode?

              Why do you say that? If it remains popular, and there are still more ideas out there, there could be a 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th generation.

              I highly doubt that'll ever happen. All starter Pokémon have been able to walk on land at this point, and well a dolphin (unless they do something weird to it) a can't.

                It sort of looked like that's what was going on with the wild Pikachu in the trailer.

                Yeah and I wanted a flightless Grass bird last gen, and a Fire snake for this one but I still have my hopes they'll come around...eventually, maybe not as starters but plain Pokémon.

                  This is off subject, but in the trailer, who realized that the main character was roller skating at one point? I wonder if this is replacing the bike or running shoes, or if it is just gonna be a third option.

                  Demons run when a good man goes to war,
                  night will fall and drown the sun
                  when a good man goes to war
                  Friendship dies and true love lies
                  Night will fall and dark will rise
                  when a good man goes to war
                  Demons run, but count the cost
                  the battle's won, but the child is lost.

                    Since the they said worldwide in October, now I'm wondering how is Gamefreak actually working on this game in order to be able to send it out worldwide in the same month!?
                    Didn't they release every single regional name variant of the starters with the trailer? I noticed that screenshots of that point in the Japanese version of the trailer have the Japanese name in a bigger font at the top instead of the English name, so I think that GameFreak has every name for the starters finalized (or nearly so.)
