Pokemon Black and White is almost here. You are about to embark on a new journey to the Unova Region, where new Pokemon and new adventures await. Can you feel the excitement?!! But first, we must ask you the most famous question at the start of every game: Are you a Boy or a Girl?

Who will you play your new Pokemon adventure as?

Boy (aka Black) or Girl (aka White)

And please share the name you will be using.

Unlike the last two generations, this boy's got style. I'll be calling myself Sean.

03-04-2011, 11:09 PM
I don't think I've ever played as a girl, so I'll be sticking with the boy. Plus he's older and cooler now. Although if Cheren didn't whine so much I'd play as him. xD

The girl...
She reminds me a lot of me. Since the last character to really seem anything like RL me was Misty I think this is a great thing :).
Plus she has my hair color and my poofy curly-ness XD

The girl. Even though from the short trailer I've seen she looks weird when she runs xD

The girl of course. I played through HG as Ethan and it wasn't fun...

Name: Rocky
Why?: 'cuz it's awesome like that. ^^

Definitely the girl.


03-05-2011, 12:31 AM
The boy, and I shall call myself Rhys, after myself of course.

03-05-2011, 12:59 AM
Real life girls hardly show that much skin, so I'm gunna play as the guy.
Oh, and I'll prolly call myself Norrin <3

03-05-2011, 01:06 AM
Rule of thumb, first time playing through a new game, I start out as my natural gender.

03-05-2011, 01:43 AM
Girl, of course ^^ And I'm gonna name her Zayna/Zayne :D

(and goll, I'm sure jealous of all that volume she gets in her hair!!!)

*lol* I don't know where you're living but here in California I wish they covered as much as her , really I do...
Misty's shorts were almost as bad really...

A girl. Sticking with my HG name - Lanny.

I'll play as the guy throughout my white play through, but probably in the future with Black or the "grey" version I will play as the girl. I like switching it up, but it doesn't really matter. I could play as a gender free person and I could care less haha.

I normally play with my name, Adam as the guy, and when I've played as a girl before ive used my girlfriends name, Corinne.

03-05-2011, 05:11 AM
Since I'm getting both (as always) I'm playing Black as the boy and White as the girl.

03-05-2011, 05:50 AM
I'm going with the girl this time around. I like her design better and it fits my usual pattern of swapping between boy and girl each game. Not sure, but I'll probably go with my normal girl name of Cecilia.

For the first time in long a while, I'm going to play as my own gender. I'm going to choose the girl. xD
I know that I need to give her a name, but, I'm not sure too what I'll be naming her, though... If I like them, maybe I'll choose a name from the list of names they suggest after selecting your gender.

I am going to go with the girl. She is cute and stylish. The last time I played a guy was during Pearl but I like playing a girl. Helps that I am one. haha

As in name, I am debating between 'Mimi' or 'My Maid'.

03-05-2011, 11:24 AM
Well, I've got the game already, but I ended up a girl. I've gotten used to playing the girl character in games as they generally have looked better in my opinion. Also, online battles with people not knowing I'm really a guy I'll hopefully make some wtf's around^^

Named myself Gin, from Ginny in Harry Potter, Gin in Detective Conan/Case Closed aaand from bittersweet weekend memories(or not). Gender neutral, short and, as I got it from two badass peeps, pretty cool. <:

03-05-2011, 06:53 PM
I am a guy, so I definitely have no problem choosing the guy as my player. Even though I may choose the girl, I will still use the male name. Ha!

Thanks for reading.

03-05-2011, 07:10 PM
i for sure dont want anyone associating me with those tight and short "daisy dukes".

03-06-2011, 04:00 AM
I'm going to play as a boy.
I'm also going to name myself Samuel Oak.
Yeah that's right. I'm a pokemon professor. :cool:

03-06-2011, 05:15 AM

Black version I will be the girl and name her, what else? Rocket!

White version I will play the guy and name him Kennith.

=^^= Nya

03-06-2011, 07:02 AM
I am going to pick the girl and i will probably name her Al.

03-06-2011, 01:09 PM
I'll be staying as a boy. Always.

Black is my boy right there. :cool:

03-07-2011, 11:47 PM
I'm playing with the girl for some reason; probably because I'm a girl... But is it too much to ask for less hair and more pants? Seriously...
And my name is Sam, as it always is.

03-19-2011, 04:59 AM
I'm naturally a girl. I'm playing as a girl in Black and I will name her Rosie (after a friend of mine) and in White I'm choosing a boy and I am naming him Ben (after my other friend).
