    Screenshots will look exactly the same as BW. It's the same rehashed graphic engine.

    Yes, of course it'll look like BW, but I'll bet every penny that it won't look exactly ​the same.

    A picture's worth a thousand words, and there are many reasons to want a screenshot--for one, it'll let us see if it takes place in new areas, if old areas were modified, and possibly what the characters look like.

    I think the only thing I'll be interested in is new areas or new protagonists. I wonder if Hilda will get the Lyra treatment?

    I think that better question is; what will happen to Hilbert and Hilda? Will they stay or go?

    Unlike GS, the girl protagonist doesn't really need the "Lyra treatment" so they'll either both stay and get design changes, or they'll both be replaced by new protagonists (which I would truly prefer for the sake of freshness).

    We are long past the point where starting as a new trainer can be considered "fresh".

    It's just personal preference. Since the games are sequels, I'd like a new set of protagonists as well.

    Me too, after all, it wouldn't really work with the old protagonists since by the time B/W ends, the player's Pokemon are all at level 50 or so, so new protagonists (and new rivals to go with them) would be the only way it could work, but that leaves us with the question of what will happen to the old protagonists.

    Retaining the previous protagonists wouldn't have to entail keeping the player's Pokémon. In theory, a trainer should have the ability to start over with new Pokémon; it may not have happened in the games, but it has in the anime. There is a way for that to work here. Will Game Freak do something like that? I don't know, but you can't say they have no choice but to implement new characters.

    You gotta remember Bianca and Cheren, too. They experienced a lot of personal growth during BW, so it would be hard to implement them for another gym go-round too. How would it be possible to get two new rivals for Hilbert and Hilda?

    First, there don't have to be two new rivals. Secondly, I see no reason why a third rival couldn't be added, especially if the rivalry had nothing to do with Gyms, as was the case with Silver. I've discussed a possible idea in this direction.

    I'd wish to see them stay because of my theory of the two new Pokemon reps for SSB4 representing the two BW games (one rep for BW1 and the other for BW2). Hilda and Zoroark are the more likely choices, and if new protagonists were introduced and physically look inferior to their BW1 predecessors, my hopes of seeing Hilda w/ Snivy, Dewott, and Emboar in a Smash Bros. title will be crushed.
