Favorite protagonist design?


Post by Artemis008 » Thu Jul 27, 2017 3:27 am

What's your favorite protagonist design? For the men, I'd have to say Hilbert from b/w. It's mostly nostalgia, but it does do a good job going back to the series roots (that's what black and white were trying to do, right?). For the women, definitely Kris from Crystal. Why did they have to make her so god damn cute?

I won't do a poll because there are way too many of them when male and female are counted separately I also don't want to piss anyone off by not including the protagonist from a super obscure game that I've never heard of.

May will always be my favorite, in terms of design and just in general. I think it's the bandana.

I like the first two male designs and May. The others have been a range of "alright" to "why do they have such stupid hats?"

Gold's re-design in HGSS is really great, I like it a lot. He looks so protag but in a good way. I preferred Kris's original design though.

Honorable mentions to White and Platinum (gen 5&4 girls), their designs are cute too. The guys' designs in those gens are good but not top-tier imo.

I love gen 3 and I LOVE Ruby, but his hat is really stupid and I can't really justify calling him one of my favorite designs.

I really dislike B2W2 designs for some reason, but I'm sure they'll grow on me when I play the games.
I believe in second chances, and that's why I believe in you.

I like B&W's player characters. Hilbert is basically Red but cooler-looking.
