Default Proof Nintendo of America is trolling you all

Guess what the names for the playable characters in Black and White are? Hilbert and Hilda. Yes, that's correct. I gave them a chance to redeem themselves after the new Pokemon designs, and then the names. But nope... I'm kind of dying on the inside now.

Even Polly and Paul are better than that, or Harry and Mary...I really don't think thy are 'trolling' they just don't have the best taste in names.
After all, Ash isn't very common ether...
Yes, Hilbert is a name, just a very old fashion one...
Since when is the pokemon world set in 1910 XD?

No offense, but I find these names quite amusing to be honest, Its more like Nintendo has a good sense of humour. Its pretty funny to have old-fashioned and weird names. Atleast in my opinion.

I don't know why you are blaming Nintendo of America for the new Pokemon designs. That is all mostly on the Japanese side. I been hearing that some Americans made some of the new pokemon but the localization such as naming the characters fall on NoA. Blame the designs of the new Pokemon on Nintendo of Japan but even that is mostly GameFreak's thing.

The names. Meh....Don't care. Already seriously thinking about naming my character 'My Maid' so no skin off my bones.

Um, honestly, who uses the game-given names for the player character?

I do not even comprehend your distaste to the names. To me, these are alright names, because Hilbert sounds like a name you give for someone who's all around nice, and Hilda is a nice name too. It's just that they don't seem to be used often on younger people, but older people with those names were young at one point anyway. Besides, since when is bias in name choices an excuse to accuse?

Thanks for reading.

In R/S/E I usually used Kimmy anyway, if I used one of the offered names at all...

At least they weren't named Footus and Delbar.

You are forced to see the name on the character you didn't pick though. Luckily, the other person doesn't pop up often (or anywhere outside... *possible spoiler*), 'cuz I'm not really liking these names. Which is a massive understatment, BTW.

In Gens 1 and 2 I named myself Red and Gold.

Never used the default names after that, though.

Black and White would be so much cooler than Hilbert and Hilda.

They don't have a habit of being called their color names outside of manga for the most part though, it's always sort of been that way...

I never quite understood calling them colors to start with, beyond being linked to each game... It's not exactly a name White or Black (as far as english names go)...

Ash actually does make a decent amount of sense, since it's a localization of "Satoshi." These, however... seriously, the least they could do is have the names start with B and W, if they aren't going with Black and White. I mean come on, it's not like they're running low on names.
