    Default Is it just me, or the blonde females are exceptionally tall?

    Cilan's height - for comparison


    Bel's height


    Alder's height - for comparison


    Cynthia's height



    Elesa is a fashion model - she's made to be tall so she's not on the list

    but really... is it just me, or the blonde females are exceptionally tall?

    We don't know Bianca's age - she could be Cilan's age or older, for all we know. Cynthia's tall, but she's just one example. And for all we know, she's from a Region where people are generally taller. (We still don't know her home Region - we just know it isn't Sinnoh or Unova.)

    Not trying to say that they aren't usually tall, but I don't think Bianca's a good reference for this, since we don't know her age.

    "Playing around?" Wrong.

    Not to mention that the characters in the BW games are older, so it makes sense that Bianca would be taller. The only person who really has a confirmed age is Ash, so there's no telling how old Bianca, Cilan, or the others are unless they get confirmed ages as well.

    Also, I may not be blonde but I've always been the tallest in my class since 4th grade. I'm 5'8" and I stopped growing sometime in high school. Some people just have a tall gene. Maybe Bianca or Cynthia have that gene.

    Look Forward, Team Rocket!

    Also I claim Piplup in the Claim a Pokemon thread =)

    Bianca and Cynthia could be of Nordic heratige. also her age still is a factor. from having some freinds from Finland and Sweden, they are about 6'3" which is an inch shorter than me, they were taller than most people in the classes we had together. however more historical detailes need to be relesed (such as Age ect) about these character

    One problem: Those places don't exist in the Pokemon world.

    Well according to Mew's Dex entry in Stadium and Lt. Surge in R/G/B/Y/LG/FR B2 and W2 America seems to exist in the pokemon world.

    We were noticing this last night when my fiance and I threw on an episode with Cynthia on it; she was even a head taller than Brock; what even is.

    Haven't noticed before but I guess that's a good point. Although there aren't many blondes in the anime to go on. Even Barry was tall and kinda lanky though :b

    I could have sworn Bianca was shorter than Cilan... I think what's going on in that particular picture is she's a bit closer to the camera, which is throwing things off, but I could be wrong.

    Also, blondes in anime tend to be associated with stereotypical foreigners, who also tend to be taller than the asian-by-default characters, so that might also play a part.

    This isn't the games.

    And those have been retconned. Except Surge, because the damage has already been done.

    You're forgetting all those real world references made in the anime as well.

    That was only in the dub and it counts as Kanto.
