    I sometimes have played as the male character, mainly because I didnt like the female player character all that much. Im playing the male character in Emerald for no particular reason.

    I usually play the games twice - once as a girl, once as a boy. So to answer the poll - yes.

    Yes, I have. I've played through Platinum as Dawn, Black as Hilda, and I plan on playing Black 2 as Mei.

    When I was young I would play as the boys, I tend to play as the girls more now. I was a weird kid.

    Girl here. My first game was Red, so obviously I had no choice but to play as a male character back then. After Crystal came out, I never chose the boy protagonist again. (Mostly because I don't like their designs at all. Not even one of them.)

    Never, although I've often wanted to, mainly to see if there is a difference story-wise.

    Yes, but never with my 'main' games, only when I get the other version to play through the game again. I love to discover every single line of dialogue in video games, so I'm interested to see even the smallest differences caused by picking the opposite gender.

    Yep. First game was Red too so I had no choice yada yada, but I've played every gen as a male and female thus far since I have a tendency to replay my games plus sticking to the same gender isn't that fun. :p

    Sometimes, mostly to differenciate different playthroughs.
    It counts for different versions of the game, too. I played Lucas in Diamond and Dawn in Platinum. While naturally I played Gold in... Gold, though that was after Crystal.

    Though for my "main", first runs, I choose the girl most of the time (except Red because duh, he's pretty cool anyways. On that note, they managed to make Leaf about as cool too)
    So yeah, I guess "second runs" like everyone else.

    And also never Brendan. I don't like his design. He's my least favorite PC, and I have strong memories of him and his stupid Mudkip.


    To be honest, I'm thinking in playing as the guy in Black 2 first. I don't really like the girl's design that much, specially after Black's.

    I do sometimes, but I generally play as the male PC. I've played as Leaf a few times, since I rather like her design and because FR is the game I happen to replay most often. I also always pick May, since I really don't like Brenden's design.

    I chose to be leaf because I wanted to know what playing as a chick in a game where you get a choice (discounting fighting games) is like. Didn't like it felt weird don't think I'll do it again for a long time.
