All information excluded, when you first saw Cheren in BW, with absolutely no information on him, did you think he was a girl?

Purely based on character design?



I knew Cheren was a guy even without any prior information because I could feel it. Natural instincts, yeah. Though, how about you?

    Come on, when Juniper introduced you the rivals, she said that Cheren's a boy. But even if she didn't, it is safe to assume that since you have two rivals, they should be of opposite genders. No one misgenders Bianca as a boy... :))

    It was N that I misgendered...

    I thought he was a guy. I guess, looking at him, he could pass for a female. Maybe a butch girl like Zoe.

    I don't think I've misgendered Cheren, though I find him adorable in that picture. :3

    I have a thing for dark-haired boys for some reason, lol... Why I find them attractive, I'm not sure.

    He can be easily mis-tomboy-ed in this pic. But only in this pic, really.

    A lot of people did when they first saw him in an early BW trailer, where it was just his VS Sprite.

    I... kinda did. But I quickly realized otherwise.

    Yup. The top option (the one with 96 votes) used to say female by the way, some joker edited it I guess.

    Cheren is the prime example of what I hate in manga/anime characters :/ He's a nerd in glasses and looks girly on top of that. The protagonists in Black/White 2 were way better.

    My favourite rival of the games is Wally and Blue.

    I don't think I ever assumed Cheren was a girl. But I mean well, as long as you realize later then it's all good. Nothing wrong with looking a little girly(or even a lot), if you like that sort of thing.

    This sprite:



    is what the discussion of whether he was a boy or a girl was based on. The first time we saw Cheren (before BW's release, his Sugimori art was revealed, etc) that sprite is all we had to work with.

    I remember that people mistook Nate on the first leaks too.

    I guess some people want them all as MANLY MAN MACHO or something.

    I really think that Nate IS Manly Man Macho enough... How exactly can he look like a girl?

    with some characters today, i flip a coin and guess. heck when they first showed Elesa, i thought Pokemon was making games geared to adults based on her first outfit. though back to cheren, it does look like him and Shauntel do share some design cues from eachother mainly in the face

    I've seen a few people mistake Cress as being a girl(poor Cwessy), but I haven't seen anyone misgender Cheren.

    The first time I saw Cheren was in a Corocoro preview where it said he was a guy.
