    I have a feeling that the team Aqua girl (I cant remember the name, if she has one) with the bare midriff will be changed when it comes to America.

    Lol, I'm pretty sure Mitzman! was joking xP

    But let's get back on topic. Brendan looks like his clothing design just went to another type of shirt. I don't understand why he's tan though. is it cause of the atmosphere in Hoenn I assume? :s

    If you mean, Shelly, then no, her outfit is unchanged from the Japanese, as are every other character that's been revealed so far.

    Are you sure? I can't think of any character that's had that happen. There have been some sprite changes, but I can't think of a single character who's had a design change upon coming overseas. Especially something as minor as a bare midriff.

    He's much lankier in his HGSS art compared to the GSC one.

    That's due to Sugimori's style more than anything else. All the characters were affected by the change.

    Lenora had her design changed. Also this. That's the only one I can remember.

    True, but I was thinking along the lines of having their designs changed for the reason the other guy was talking about. For that, I don't know of it happening.

    I'm thinking more of characters from different anime/games. Mostly Yugioh artwork had alot of their art changed from being too revealing or showing a bare midriff.

    Maybe this is just me making something out of nothing, but...and I the only one that finds it strange that Brendan and May are being referred to under the names Orlando and Anna? Brendan's been referred to by the name multiple times, notably. It looks like, on the Japanese site, they're referred to by the typical name of the games; Alpha for Brendan in the same screenshots that call him Orlando in English.

    The reason I find this notable is that, while it's pretty much clear these are, indeed, placeholder names (since I doubt Alpha and Omega would actually be their NPC names in the Japanese version), why give them actual names that aren't their NPC names? Hell, why not just also call them Alpha and Omega? It seems different in that I don't remember other games doing this. For BW2, I remember Nate just being called Trainer. And for X and Y, Xavier and Yvonne made more sense, with the whole X and Y thing they had going on. Why Orlando and Anna, rather than just Brendan and May? It just seems rather random. Maybe that's the whole point?

    So, not that this is actually some big-ass deal, because it really isn't, (and, in the long run, is probably just me looking too deep into things that don't need to be thought about) but, could these characters possibly not be called Brendan and May in-game?
