I've been reading some reviews, and there seems to be a huge amount of unfavorite things to say about the boy character, like he's badly drawn and gay. I'm still cracking up from reading the comments right now that make it sound like the boy is gay porno movie star. I mean, sheesh!:tongue:

On the other hand, I'm playing the female. Even some of the people were saying they're going with the girl.:happy: I just never felt they designed the male character right, but on the other hand, I just personally prefer playing the female characters and turn them into another Captain Janeway.:crackup:

I'm still cracking up over the jokes for the boy character. Poor guy.

Oh yeah, get this, you get FIVE spaces to name your boy or girl character. There goes Hikari Dawn out the window, the idiots! Guess I'll call her Dawn H.

Yeah, he's quite skinny, and looks like a nerd, but who cares, I'll go with that guy.

I'll have both games, so I'll have one of each. I prefer the design of the girl, but the guy's not so bad I won't use him.

Only five spaces? :eh: That's pretty... dumb. xP

I'm not sure who I'll play as at the moment.

Maybe the girl... I don't like the guy's hat. xD

Lucky my name is five characters long ^_^
Are you sure that was for the English game? I've played Japanese versions before that only had five spaces for names and things, but I can't imagine that the English version would have that.

I don't mind the look of either of the characters. I think the guy's hat is cool, but I'd prefer if he just had a regular cap or something. I'll be going with the girl because I'd like my character to be named "Sarah" =P

English version should have 7 spaces(enough fo my name^_^) and 10 for the pokemon. They only game I have with 5 spaces is my bootleg LG(I have a Japanize Farfecth'd and Mr. Mime) wich is also Japanize. I useually just pick my gender.

I'll be using the male, since I'm not one of those people who plays the opposite gender in games. The only time I use female characters is if I'm doing some sort of extra run for a TM, restarting a game to trade a starter, or using a game to only hatch Eggs - all to mix up the OT's my Pokemon have.

I know the guy looks gay, with the dumb beret and stuff. But... I just don't like playing a girl, even though she looks... nice =) For Diamond I'm playing as the boy. If I somehow get enough money to buy Pearl, I MIGHT just choose girl for fun.

and the 5 spaces wont affect my name

Well, you see, it's kinda weird for a boy to play as a girl, while it's not for a girl to play a boy. Like if you saw a boy wearing a mini skirt, a tanktop, and a bra, that'd be a little strange, XD, while if you saw a girl wearing baggy pants and a studded belt, etc., it wouldnt be so weird.

Um... in my day, there was a differance between "playing" a character of the opposite sex, and dressing up as one. But hey, if you decide to wear a bra and mini skirt when playing a female character, well, it's none of my business what you do behind closed doors.

Lol yeah xD my cousins all mad 'cause the male character is feminine looking in a way. I don't really care about how the male character looks though o.0 but I've got to admit he does look kinda funny :D.

Zomg?! only FIIVEE SPAACEEESSS!? ahem. Thats ridiculous if its true, so much for calling my character person Teni-chan D: I guess just Teni works then T.T

I just watched an English D/P video on YouTube. The guy in it named his character Cranky. That's 1-2-3-4-5-6 letters just in case you can't count.:wink: So for those of you who have longer names, you are in luck!

Heh, the female character looks like a Ghost. Just needs a torch. =/

Aside from the fact that most of you won't get that, I honestly don't mind playing as either gender. I mean, only a bunch of eight year olds would cry about playing as the opposite sex. It's not like you're actually becoming it. >_>

What's wrong about the boy?I wouldn't say he's the greatest boy character I ever saw but he's not the worst.I'm going with him even though I hate his hat.I like the guy from Ruby better.

Plus,I want more spaces D:

I want to name my character Takashi or Sotakara.

Well for me, it's a matter of preference plus it makes me a little guilty to have my boy character beat the girl character's Pokemon and have to lower her moral/confidence. I know it's a game and shouldn't matter, but I always felt strange having my character do that just to get to the next level, whereas as the girl, it's not as bad to beat the boy character. I"m not trying to be weird in this, I just prefer playing the girl character on Pokemon.:redface: I kind of think they got more personality and plus, they don't look as stupid as the boy characters look. I heard a lot of Brendan jokes!:crackup:

And yes, for a boy to behave like Klinger of Mash, that would be a little disturbing next to seeing James in women's clothes again!:crackup: But I see no wrong if a few of us males prefer playing the female on Pokemon.:happy:

Dawn is a cool girl. Just 2 more days.
If I can link up to the game, maybe for fun I might have a contest with May/Dawn in link mode.

The male character doesn't look "gay" at all. He looks rather french. You kiddies shouldn't throw the word "gay" around for things you don't like.

rebelde33
04-21-2007, 05:11 AM
Calm down children there's 5 characters for the japanese and either 7 or 8 for the American versions.

On a side note, i'll admitt I like the girl better in these two games since she appeals to me more. I've been the boy on all the rest of the past games. I think you should just pick your character you like. Plus, nobody on Wi-Fi is going to know you so they won't be able to make fun of you.

There have always been 7 spaces for the US versions, don't expect that to change. But that's okay since "Mooty" is 5 characters, and I've been using that nick for how long!

Seriously, the girl has always been better looking in games, except probably May. In FRLG, let's compare the two. The male looks like a typical ash. Stupid kiddy backpack, dumb small red cap. The girl looks dressed up trendily, actually looks TEENAGE, has a cool slingbag, etc etc.

In DP, it is the same. Although instead of looking kiddy, the male character just looks... abnormal. Girl still looks trendy, meanwhile.

May looked dumb though. I didn't mind Brendan because he actually looked quite good, albeit a little skinny.

I agree with all that. I love the girl in LG, I love the girl in D/P. I'm all over her hat and scarf! So kawaii desu~

I only think May looked bad in Emerald. She had a GREEN bandana, and RED clothes! xP

Yeah, I agree it really isn't fair that the females in the past games look better than the males for some people. o.o; Maybe in future games you'll get to choose how yoo want your character to look ,(Off topic: I heard that they'll be doing that In Pokemon Battle Revolution for Wii) that'd be kinda cool in my opinion. ^-^

Does it really matter, I mean the only time another person is gonna see is in a battle people will only see fora few seconds. I reckon it depends on what the pokemon look like .I mean if its a tough one itlll be on the screen for a while. Like I have a feraligatr on leaf green and you can see its but wich makes it annoying and embarising to use

Oh well, I'm a girl anyways! ^^ Though Hikari (I can't stand saying her EN name) looks cool 'n all, her skirt is way too short for my taste.:rolleyes: Well, it's just a overworld sprite so who cares. But jeez, 5 spaces?! First 7 then 5? Gosh, I guess Frost just barely fits the requirement this time. (I always name my character either Frost or Chris. Force of habit)

I think the boy looks just fine. I'm using him in Diamond, and I'm naming him Adrian. Or at least I was, but you can only use 5 characters.

I suppose I'll use... Alden, Nate, or Sean. Probably Nate.
In Pearl, I'll name my girl character Blair or something.

I htink it pretty much depends on what gender you are in real life. I'll probably pick the guy, but when another guy picks the girl, it's kinda weird.

Well the boy...man, I never read so much about the poor lad looking so gay! I just feel the hat, attire, and lack of chemistry makes him bad. The girl has always looked better and they've given her great attires (except for May's change in EMerald. I sure hope that Diamond/Pearl's '3rd game' doesn't change Dawn's attire.)

04-22-2007, 12:50 AM
Dawn's mini-skirt is too short? Sexay in my opinion. To me, a guy playing a girl char means his hormones are working correctly, while the guy does look gay. I usually usta play girl chars, and I was planning this time, I'm playing a guy... until I saw the guy character.... he looks SOOOO gay! And the girl was hot, so hey, would you rather look hot as a girl or gay as a guy? Girls may like gay guys (my sister does) but guys will harass you and hate you if you look even remotely feminine.

But Dawn is sexay, so she gets my vote and I'm playin' as her.

I'm a guy and I've picked the girl before. I don't think that it's weird at all. I'm picking the boy on one and the girl on the other.
