I hate the look of Mii's honestly. I can't stand it. In their own little universe, go ahead, have them, they're great. However, if you wish to integrate them into a game, make sure that game has an art style that will support a Mii's integration, because 9/10 times, THEY DON'T.
I'm a bit indifferent for character customization. I'm not really all too sentimental about it. If we have it, sweet! If not, sweet! I still get a new Pokemon game. I don't really care too much about how I look as much as I care about the power of my team.
Customization would be awesome but does that include the character's face like you can change its nose or mouth or eyebrows or something because that seems a bit much, (just changing clothes and hair would be enough for me) but if that's what the majority wants then ok, don't let me hold you back; I'd be perfectly fine with it actually, just as long as it doesn't turn into a fashion contest for humans or something.
ditto's cells therapy XD
I hope there is character customization like in PBR. Even if there isn't skin tone customization in the japanese version, Nintendo might add it for the other versions (right?).
Although I do agree with @Poko907; on the point of the face features and such. All facial and bodily features should be permanent after choosing them in the beginning with only hair and a few clothes options being changeable later on.
In don't know if this has been mentioned yet, but look back at the trailer.
The male character is wearing sunglasses.
But in the scene where he swings on the rope in the trees, where are they...?
This either means Trainer customization, or that clip was taken at a different point of development in the games and the lack of glasses was a beta idea.
i agree soo much i hope this is trueI'm going to go out on a limb here and say customizing our trainers is finally coming. My reasoning are a few and ill list them off as so. (Mind you I'm on a iPad so I won't go to in depth quite yet).
1. The trainers shown look just a tad generic
2. Did you notice how the trainer was looking in a mirror? Often times character creators use this setting for the creation set up. The "getting dressed approach".
3. There were no official images of the trainers to be found in the trailer, as I recall all the past trailers always introduced who you're playing.
I know it sounds like I'm grasping at straws and yes I am. But that's the fun of speculation! Ill post more thoughts I have when I can use a key board. But please discuss!
I think there will be, and in the trailer it shows the set protagonist. This would be a very nice feature, but they'd have to make it really nice, like you can go and buy cloth's from a store somewhere, and you start with tons of options, then if they do this, the opening for multilayer you would be able to toggle with through several options, to make it feel like your on this journey a bit more, maybe your rival should make fun of your cloth's and be mean, no matter how epic you look :)

In the Iwata Asks from GameFreak's HarmoKnight, there's a design document for that game drawn by Turner mentioning items you could buy to customize your player's appearance, yet in the actual game, this feature is nowhere to be found, I'm guessing it was dropped due to time constraints.
It made me wonder if perhaps they took that idea and applied it to XY.
I really don't know why we can't have customization. In this day and age, with all the other games that features customization, it doesn't make sense a game like Pokemon is missing it. It's an RPG meant to be your journey. Why can't we personalize it? Heck, make it so we can unlock customizables a la TF2 throughout the game. I'd go for that. Maybe even allow decals for our pokemon like the seals from Gen IV, but make them permanent. All this would make pokemon fun and customizable.
well, it may add more complications. for example, your mother figure; wouldn't it be weird if you had dark skin but for her to be pale? or if you had curly purple hair while her's was blonde and straight? im just sayin'.
But another way is there would be preset characters for the parents based on skin color choices. If you have curly hair you'll just have to pretend your never home father passed that down to you.
