Also, Golliwogs had big wooly hair and a freakish grin (two traits that are not evident in Jynx).
Dashiki (a traditional african dress) it's quite possible she could be black.

I'll never understand why people would get upset when Aloe is represented as a Gym Leader, someone with power and influence. Surely that's a good thing?
I just checked the bulbapedia page for Aloe, the apron was changed. I don't particularly care too much about the apron really. Although not it looks ridiculous like she has some sort of cape. I was more worried they'd make or white or something. :/
Planned Pokemon White Team
Looking at Aloe...why did they change her Sugimori artwork? They didn't want the "Women Cook" or "Black Mama" stereotype? (Although to be fair, he trainer title is "Natural-born Mama" >>). But I have to laugh at how she still has her apron xD
More refreshing for me. =3
I love the changes. I wonder if pokemon will come to England! =O
As to the Westernization of B/W, I think it will appeal more to Western audiences, which I assume was the goal, so it was a good idea, in my opinion. Though I can understand why others would think otherwise.

Just a reminder of this:
I think it gave more air to more added things in Pokemon. I think it was a good thing, although i would like one more "central" region in the middle of Kanto Johto Hoenn and Sinnoh
Ryou Bakura, Yami Bakura, and I live together in Lief's bedroom. Back off
I personally like the Westernized feel of Black and White, even if it does feel like I'm playing "What the Japanese think of America." I like how Isshu is a far away place and how they have their own ecosystem of Pokémon, and the diversity of NPC with both race and occupation. I never thought I would see the day where I would see a Baseball player, Basketball, Football, and Street Dancer trainer classes in the main games. As for the Japanese feel of the franchise, with Kanto/Johto/Sinnoh, it did feel somewhat like Japan, especially with it's industrialization. To be honest, I always thought that Hoenn was the first region that took place far away from Japan, until I learned that it's still a part of the same land as Kanto and Johto.
It makes no difference where the game is set; Pokémon is Pokémon.
