    Nice topic Well I never played as May in R/S/E
    So its obvious I played as Male character because of different Clothes depending on Version of game like, Male character wears slightly Blue clothes in Ruby, so its version exclusive clothes that's why I always liked

    Hoenn Region thus, I named Male Character Vin Which is abbreviation of my real name (Vinayak Is indeed my real name) its a Secret okay!?

        Don't think I've ever played as Brendan before. My brother chose him so I thought it'd be better if we played as different characters.

          I always choose Brendan and usually name him deku or after my own name. However, I really prefer May's design.. I just never decide to play as her.

            I played as May because I feel she fits the story better. I used her official name because I don't always play as my gender and want to keep the stories consistent from game to game.

              Although I prefer May's design, I choose Brendan when playing the Hoenn games.

                On my first playthrough, I chose May and named her after myself because we are the same gender. I still frequently pick her now for the same reason, but occasionally I will pick Brendan for a change of pace. When I do, I usually name him Finn as it is the first male name I thought of that kinda resembles my name.

                  I always chose May and named her Lara - my real life name xD I prefer May's design over Brendan's and I am a girl so that's why I usually go with May.

                  I picked May because I like the female characters in the games more. And now days reading the manga May (Saphire) is the bigger BA.

                    Since I'm a boy, I picked Brendan to match my own gender. On my first playthrough, I named him "Marky" which I thought was a cool name back then. :P Now I have the tradition to name myself as the canon name of the character (but there are some exceptions). As a result, I name myself Brendan in every subsequent playthrough.

                    I almost always pick the male characters in Pokemon since I enjoy their designs more overall, and Brendan in particular is one of my favorite designs for a Pokemon 'protagonist'. His white hat/hair in particular make me laugh.

                      May because she's cool af and was actually in the show. Brendan was dead to me once I found out his cool white hair was actually just a hat.

                        I went with May in Sapphire, and named her Karen after myself. In Ruby, I went with Brendan - I just used the default name because I didn't have a go-to male name, and Brendan's not bad.

                        First playthrough of Emerald I also picked May and used my name, and currently I'm doing the Hunger Games challenge, so I'm playing as Brendan and named him Finnick, after Finnick Odair from District 4.

                              I switch between both, which is weird because I don't normally do that. I used Brenden for the sole purpose that I'm a guy. However, I think I just liked May's design and personality more.

                              I picked May, because she was simply cute. Brendan looked too badass for me to play as was too obvious to pick, cos he was pretty cool looking and seemed really pumped for an adventure, if that makes sense? x) so I picked May, and named her Celeste (or May, if I feel like it). Gotta say, it seemed suiting to me :p

                              Brendan had the better design game theme wise, but May was adorable. Cuteness prevails.

                                I always chose Brendan, because of my gender. But I also like May, because of her gentle personality. I also sorta wish Max was in the game, because I liked him too.

                                  I picked May because I'm a girl, but I think I just named her May lol. :3 I think I named the boy in Emerald James. I'm not really sure how I came up with that one, haha.

                                      I always pick the female character, It makes it feel a little more personal to me. Brendon is the one male character I kind of wanted to do a play-through as, but in Ruby, Sapphire and Emerald I still went with May.
