The Pokémon Company has released the opening videos for Pokémon X and Pokémon Y, for both the female and male trainer in the game. The opening features the new Pokémon professor allowing you to pick your gender and basic customization options.




As previously reported, Pokémon X and Pokémon Y let you further customize your trainer at boutiques and salons throughout the games. Each boutique will have its own style.

    How long until people complain that they can’t customize body measurements. “The bust on my 10-year old is not big enough!”

    • jugss

      facial hair is confirmed though

      • Scarlet_Devil_Slave

        My dream has come true! I’ll finally be able to create a 10 year old with a big bushy beard! :D

        • Aaron K Stone

          But their not 10…

      • Godman

        lol and you are apparently old enough to be subjected to skin changing treatment

        • Reficul Terumi

          If you’re old enough to travel the world, catch and cockfight with wild monsters why wouldn’t you be able to (most likely safely to the tech in the poke’ world) alter your appearance?

    • IS | 桂木

      >tfw your 10-year old Pokemon trainer doesn’t have J-cups

      • Tanner

        I can’t name her Hitomi in good faith yet

      • Brion Valkerion

        That would go against all modern anime standards!

        I mean hey, if Strike Witches and Vividred Operation can have 8 year olds with massive camel toe, I want my 10 year old pokemon trainer to look like Hitomi!

        • DanteMasamune

          Ummmm…we’re not talking about the Japanese AV model Hitomi Tanaka now are we?

          • anarchy_panty

            Let’s pretend he is.
            Sweet Jesus on high, those jubblies…

          • DanteMasamune

            Heh I think they’re fake because I recall seeing another Japanese AV model who looked like a younger version and she was as flat as a door but then again Ai Shinozaki and Rui Kiriyami (both graveur models) like her (Hitomi Tanaka).

            Funny because some guy said “>tfw your 10-year old Pokemon trainer doesn’t have J-cups” and I instantly thought of “Hitomi J Cups” (Matt from Two Best Friends).

          • Alexander Marquis Starkey

            Nah, I’m pretty sure those things are real. It’s not hard to spot the difference between fake breasts and real ones.

          • DanteMasamune

            Damn……oh well. She still creeps me out (Hitomi Tanaka that is) due to how far apart her eyes are (I’ve never seen anyone let alone an asian with eyes that far apart she almost looks like an alien).

      • Spider-Man

        Truly soul crushing.

    • DanteMasamune

      What about the options that they can’t go shirtless. People will complain about that too but I’m going for the guy so I don’t care much about the chick.

      • Godman

        I swear if they allow you to take of the shirt and not the hat I’m going to. . .

        • DanteMasamune

          I think you can take off the hat or change it with another hat.

          It’ll be funny though. I might go like the male trainer in the Pokemon My A$$ firered hack.

          “My shirt off, my shirt off!!”

          • Anesia Hunter

            (you watch shofu too?) but anyways, i think i saw a clip or screen shot where a character wasn’t wearing a hat.

    • Dragard Kaos

      I thought the characters started off older since Gen 5? Can’t remember exactly.

      • Draparde

        I think they do. it might have been mentioned somewhere when the trainers for Gen 5 where revealed…but at least they’ve looked older imo since than.

        • DanteMasamune

          Mainly cause Hilda/Touya wore booty shorts and looked like a truck stop pick up girl (or call girl) and Rosa/Mei had a nice rack granted so did May and Leaf….sort of but I think Rosa had the nicest, roundest, curviest, largest breast of them all (can’t believe I just said that).

          Plus what ten year old girl dresses like Hilda. If my 10 year old daughter is going out dressed like that I already know as a father I failed her.

          • Draparde

            well I suppose theres that too xD.

            they just seem all around taller and older to me. naturally not adult age or anything. but older than 10 lol.

          • DanteMasamune

            I had my doubts of some of the previous trainers being 10 as well (like 12 at times) but whatever.

          • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

            who Touya,
            It only Hilda, Brianca and Rosa.

          • DanteMasamune

            Touya is Hilda’s Japanese name.

          • Elemiel

            It’s Touko, Touya is the male.

          • DanteMasamune

            Oh thanks I knew I felt I was wrong but I guess I might as well went with it. Next time when I have doubt I’ll make sure to double check.

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        B/W 15/16

      • Suicunesol

        I’m not sure about that… that may have been some early leaker thinking that their outfits made them appear older, and then that guy told everyone that they looked older… which translated in fan-speak to “they are older!”

        There was never an official statement on them actually being older, nor was there a statement that said they weren’t. ^^; I think it’s just fans’ wishful thinking~

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      stop being 10 since gen 5 *15*

    • Anesia Hunter

      I really do doubt anyone would care about bust size so much in a pokemon game. Most already know the drill and just don’t expect much out of pokemon except for cool design pokemon that are powerful. Besides we got awesome series that already know how to deliver in those areas.

    • konsama

      Bah if i can’t make my character like Flannery or Sabrina there’s no point. Kekeke :P

    • Sardorim

      Aren’t the new trainers supposed to be like 16? Trainers are now older after Gen V as Gamefreak understands that their fanbase has grown over the years too.

      • Kai2591

        they’re older? nice :)

      • Suicunesol


  • Lynx

    I’m going to ditch the Gamecube for this.

    So hype.

  • Musashi234

    Nope Nope i wont be watching this i want to be surprised when i turn on my 3DS.

    • Malon

      I… Simply… Couldn’t resist… Please… Don’t do the same mistake… Argh.

    • 하세요

      I’m with ya there. I’m officially letting everything be a surprise. Ever since this Canada / Italy fiasco I’ve been avoiding everything.

    • konsama

      Ikr, i already stupidly spoiled myself with the last evos of starters, i’m not gonna watch this. JUST 9 MORE DAYS >_<…9 more days…

      • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

        those aren’t confirmed

        • 하세요

          Yeah they are, as much as many wish it wasn’t. They have full blown proof of it.

          • Anesia Hunter

            let us stay in denial just a bit longer… we’re not ready to accept them just yet. (especially when it comes to THAT one -_-)

          • jugss

            I like Froakie’s supposed final evo. I hate chespin’s though.

          • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

            then prove it
            show me on the official site or from Nintendo

          • Spider-Man

            Come on, really?

          • Daniel Jeanbaptiste

            yes really
            i am saying they are not confirmed not fake

    • Slayven19

      I couldn’t resist, none of this will stop me from being hyped for the game and these are minor spoilers at best.

  • Alberto Martin Albarracin

    I didnt played pokemon since emerald,im really hyped for this!I think they do the changes for good.

  • Godman

    Damn I’m going to have to keep the standard fashion until I get to the Boutique shops, I know what’s my first priority!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    clams to be a professor, still doesn’t know if you are a boy or a girl…well blame him now and days *traps everywhere*

    • It could always be a matter of identification~? Like, “yeah, you’re a boy, but do you identify as a boy, hmmm~?”

  • Audie Bakerson

    It still bugs me how the Japanese script (at least by default) is STILL all kana instead of furigana Kanji when the 3DS can do furigana.

    • FirstaLasto

      I think that Pokemon specifically uses just kana because its target audience is younger people. that said, furigana would just help them to learn new kanji as they played!
      but even a mature rated game like aa5, which is abaolutely brimming with kanji in every sentence, doesnt use furigana, so I dont even know whats going on.

  • Learii

    oh now I can as a black girl or black guy? XD

  • The Zigzagoon Man

    There’ll be a lack of horse pokemon in x and y..
    we all know the french eat horses.
    And poor poor slugma. :(

    • grayson gee

      Last time I checked, people weren’t very fond of eating Lava Slugs.

    • Suicunesol

      They’d probably eat Shelmet over Slugma.

  • Otis ChaoticNeutral Small

    Hope I can take off that hat

  • s07195

    Dat Zettai Ryouiki…. *nosebleed*
    B-but I always play as a boy in Pokemon! (My actual gender)

  • Cursingcomet

    The articles on pokemon makes me wanna buy a 3ds xl solely for pokemon.
