The girls would actually be better if they didn't exist just for fanservice. :| There's no right or wrong opinion, but I felt like arguing.
    I'm aware it's a matter of opinion. I doubt I was implying otherwise. Concerning the fanservice part, I must disagree. No, they aren't dressed like prostitutes at all. Wearing short skirts doesn't automatically equal being that type of woman, nor fanservice. Don't take this as offense, but I think you're a little paranoid. I'm not talking rude, I swear. Just wanted to point that out. As for why I dislike male protagonists, the reason is that they look plain to me. I fail to see anything special in them. Up until generation IV, they always seemed like clones of Red with different clothes. In generation V we finally got some properly differently designed ones, only to (in my humble opinion) still have them look not so great. I'd say Touya, while not particularly interesting, is the best one among all of them. Because Kyouhei is... well... I find him stupid-looking. His face, his hair, his clothes... I simply find them ridiculous.
    I never said they were prostitutes dude! D8 Only that they're blatantly showing as much skin as possible while the boy character is conveniently fully dressed. Hilda's lack of outfit VS Hilbert being fully dressed, you know? It's disgusting, there's NO REASON for her to be so completely undressed other than fanservice. Mei thankfully isn't fanserviced up, but she's the only one. I wouldn't be half as bitter if all the girls were like that.

    I mean, the ONLY boy character to wear shorts AND show legs is Ethan. And not one single boy character is sleeveless. Each pair of protagonists, the girl is always showing more skin than the boy character. Dawn is probably the most blatant fanservice bait. Especially her Platinum outfit, it wouldn't be hard to make her outfit practical. But nooo, she needs grade-A zettai ryouiki instead. The girls themselves aren't "slutty", I know that, but the way they were designed was just fanservice. I don't want to play a girl who's completely dressed down.

    And as for the "Red clone" thing, Ethan and Hilbert are the only ones who "look like Red" to me, mostly Ethan though, since Ethan wears red and Hilbert doesn't. Brendan looks nothing like him, unless Red once wore a really goofy knit hat. And Kyouhei's design is very original and cool, it does take a while to get used to, I admit, but it's really cool.

    I think we oughta continue our debate through private messages though, I think we're derailing the thread. 8U;

    For now, I have claimed: Mewtwo, Member's Card, Wide Lens, Honey Gather, and Psystrike.

    Right. Because the next female protagonist should be dressed like a nun. That should solve everything.

    According to rumor, Mei is named 'Rosa', and Banjirou 'Benga'. Should be taken with a grain of salt though.

    Still the Unova Champion in my book.

    Are people really saying a girl wearing shorts is being immodest? Really? I'll give you Dawn and the FR/LG girl with their short skirts, but there's nothing wrong with depicting a girl in shorts.

    So... Nate, Rosa, and Benga. Hmm, I like them.

    ...but guys, please, can we just put the "female protag design" debate to rest?

    Rosa sounds nice (I assume it's pronounced "Rose-ah").

    Benga sounds like he should be in the Flintstones.

    Default Elesa gained weight? lol

    Seriously, Elesa's been packing on some pounds in the past two years. lol

    Compare her BW artwork to that of B2W2. I'd post the images, but for some reason, Elesa's Bulbapedia page isn't working for me right now. :/

    Anyone else notice this? I find it really funny and ironic, because she's supposed to be a model. XD Or maybe Elesa retired from the modeling business? I'm not far in Black 2 yet, so...

    Maybe she realized that being anorexic isn't the way to go?

    That's true, her extremely anorexic form wasn't very appealing or hot at all in BW, but now she actually looks NOT like a walking skeleton. If I were her though I'd fire her agent and find a new agent who won't choose that ridiculous coat.

    So does someone want to define "packing on the pounds" for me? Because I'm just not seeing it.

    And no, Elesa did not quit her modelling career in B2W2.
