Default Have you had enough of the Hat?

Since Red and Blue versions, the male character has always worn a hat. Ok. At first this was ok as it made the players feel more like Ash Ketchum and they can relate to him in their quest to catch em all, but am I the only one tired of the headwear?

Wih the release of Diamond and Pearl, we see, yet again, the return of the hat and the head garment on the girl. I'm starting to want to let my characters hair roam freely. I want to see his hair out there with all it's cool spikyness. In fact, lets go all the way...lets CHOOSE if we want the hat or not. Let's select hair color, sunglasses, shoes! The world of Pokemon is going online, and it's a drab for everyone to look the same. Let's bring the Mii's into the Pokemon world. WE NEED THIS!!

NINTENDO HAS SUPRESSED OUR INDIVIDUALITY FOR TOO LONG!! WE NEED TO FIGHT THE VICIOUS ENEMY!! FIGHT SATOSHI TAJIRI AND HIS COMMUNIST WAYS!!! LETS DO THIS TOGETHER!!

You can't do much about that, they're always going to have head things. But if you're really annoyed, get Pokemon Battle Revolution, you can customize your people in that.

I'm not really mad about his headwear, I actually like it and it never bothered me. Like Lonewolf said just buy PBR.

ROFL ROFL XDXDXDXD That made me laugh so much, but anyway yes I agree, the Miis are a fantastic idea for the Pokémon games.. but the problem is the link they share with the show, and how you always end up playing as a character that already exsists.

Yea, It doesn't bother me as much as I made it seem in my post, but I was hoping for a little bit of individuality in the Pokemon RPG's, not just PBR. It won't dramatically change the game for me, but it would be a welcome addition in the RPG's.

I should sig that.

On topic: I dunno, I wouldn't mind customizing my own character. But does it really matter?

It has never minded me whether what they look like.. it's too small to add custom features.

It's never troubled me really. I mean if they really wanted to do that they would let us pick our age as well :3. Even at the age of nearly twenty four I still play a ten year old *lol* ;)

But then, changing you age would ruin the storyline and make the whole pokemon world act like the odd timeline of Back to the Future 2, so I will leave well enough alone :3

Sorry for minimodding, but remember the four word rule. Anyways, customizing a character would take lots of space, making the entire game shorter and crappier.

USE LOGIC PEOPLES!!!

Character customization is really the biggest thing missing from the pokemon games though. To only have it in Revolution is unfair to some people, especially me. I love character customization in any game as long as the graphics and options are good enough.

Longer games aren't always better, but it would be cool to have inter regional gameplay in one game. I'm sure their are ways to have everything though. We may have to wait for the console after Wii though.

^ Exactly.

You have to remember that there's a limited amount of space on these tiny cartridges used for the handheld versions, as opposed to the great deal of data a disk can hold, even a small one like the GC disks. If they tried to make it where you could customize your avvy, then overall the game would be made less appealing and fun. Less data would be available for Pokemon, items, events, areas, and all the things that make Pokemon, well, Pokemon.

So while it might seem unfair for the PBR to get chars you can customize while D/P and other GB versions don't, just remember that those console disks hold much more data. That's just how it is.

If I'm right.... cartridges can't be switched mid-game like discs can, so there really isn't the option of spreading the game over two separate cartridges, either. A little character customization would be fine but priority goes to the length and detail of the game, changing your characters assets comes second.
