    My brother thought it would be a good idea that the pokemon games would let you pick what race your character would be. What about you?

    I think they should let you do that and design them in a way. Not super advanced like the Sims, but simple enough with clothing, hair, skin, etc.. choices. Just simple ones

    @mwto; Exactly. That would be sweet, but it might take up a lot of data, making the story and post-game shorter. Considering all of the animations and the 650+ Pokemon.

    No.... just no. This would be utterly pointless.

    I would rather have them spend time innovating the battle system or something than wasting time on stuff like this.

    It would just be a waste of coding in my opinion.

    No. The characters are all designed to be their own existence, not us. It's no different than when we play a Mario game as Mario, or The Legend of Zelda as Link (though you can rename him). I know a lot of people want to pretend it's actually them traveling around the regions, but those characters are not meant to truly be us.

    Not if the outfits and stuff were preset. At least give different player character choices, for example if in HG they had let you choose between Crystal or Lyra instead of giving just Lyra.

    What? I doubt with Japanese names like Mei and Kyouhei that they're white. It's a Japanese game, they're Japanese.

    LOL!? I know. Everybody in the pokemon game is black!
    Just for everyone to know I was joking. But maybe those features will make it better than the other generations.

    I could see it taking up a lot of memory that could be used for more productive stuff, but having a custom character would be amazing. Maybe down the road sometime when games have space to blow on trivial things. I like the idea of changing race/appearance because the current single character per gender makes it look like you're battling yourself when you battle another player...

    And we have Brendan and May who are from Hoenn (Kyushu) Unova is based on New York so Mei and Kyouhei are technically American and thus more likely to be white... same with Hilda/Hilbert the others are Japanese because their regions are based are based on regions of Japan (Kanto, Kansai, Kyushu and Hokkaido)

    This will cause the Racism problem which shouldn't even exist, as there is Pokemon Wifi Trade Center where all player can meet....
    So definitely a NO.

    If those racism argument explode at the trade centre just because of this race selector, I'll quit any online Pokemon gameplay.

    Why not a Black Player Character for once (both genders)? We already have Iris, Lenora etc. This PC will be preset and everyone can't change it. That way, everyone will be forced to play as a black PC.
