• Hi all
    Just a notice, we recently discovered that someone got into a moderator account and started hard deleting a load of key and legacy threads...around 150 threads have been lost dating back to 2007 and some weeks ago so we can't roll the forums back.
    Luckily no personal data could be accessed by this moderator, and we've altered the permissions so hard deleting isn't possible in the future
    Sorry for any inconvenience with this and sorry for any lost posts.

I wish they'd kept Crystal so i'm going to play as the girl and call her "CRYSTAL" just so i can pretend they're the same characters XD

Usually i play as the male through my first playthrough then the female in the second.

If only this new girl had blue hair she could have been a heavily re-designed Crys.

Hmmmm.... I think both of them look very young. I wouldn't be surprised if this is a younger brother of Gold or something! I MUCH prefered old Male character outfit! But hey, i'll get used to it! New girl looks really silly! She could graduate clown academy with flying colours!! No joke!! Red with blue STRAPPED shorts!! Whatever were they thinking....major out of date fashion but sher hey! It's pokemon!! :/

Male all the way!!


ill probably choose the boy for the first time as i am one.

but the girl...i really like her! i think shes the best girl we've had yet.


burning it down
I'm goin to play as the boy on one version and the girl on the other. I like the new girl, she looks really awesome.


it shone! ^_^
I'll probably play as the girl, seeing as I am one.

The male and female characters seem to have exactly the same expression on their face. I find that somewhat disturbing... o.o


Merely A Puppet
I will pick the boy as I am one although I agree with whoever it was who said Jimmy look younger than original Jimmy. I may call him Greg as that is my name and I usually do that but I am also thinking about Jimmy, Gold and Allan(one of my middle names).

Marina was awesome. Granted, she was my least favorite of the game!girls but she still had a special place in my heart, being the original playable female character and all. ;~;
But I won't deny that the new girl is pretty, because her outfit is kickin'. I have the same response to her as I did to the Ranger 2 girl: I'll get used to her.


Rikudou Master
The new girl isn't that bad. We're just not all that use to her. Given time, She'll probably grow on us.


I am goin wit the male trainer even though he looks too different to the original (This time he looks way too young). The girl would be better if it was Marina but she isn't that bad i guess ¦)


Too sweet
Hmmm. I'll choose the guy, as usual.

And the girl... hmm... Well I like the new girl but I also liked Marina. :/


<<I'm not interested
I'm being a boy, I don't think the new girl looks that bad.


♫ Ad vivere
I'll choose the girl, of course.

She is different, but it doesn't bother me.


stay sweet
I want Marina back. 8|

This girl looks weird... overalls and a wannabe beret. She's some fake hillbilly.

*really doesn't like* Guess I'm going to use Kenta. <3


Good boy.
That new girl's got some mario colors going on.

But male, because i'm a dude.
I'm gonna name him RyanRay! :D

That new girl needs to GTFO and let Marina back in.
I don't see why people keep on saying that Crystal was replaced. She was never in GS, only in Crystal. If I remember correctly, this is a GS remake. They probably thought it would feel weird to add a character from Crystal when HGSS has nothing to do with Crystal's different story-plot.=/

Antway, I like the new girl. She looks lika a normal person... I'm obviously going to pick her since I am a girl...
I really like the new girl compared to Marina. And compared to Marina the new girl's outfit is pretty modernized. Now I can't choose between her or Gold though. I always play as the girl in my pokemon games and for once I wanted to play as Gold. Now I can't decide. XD
