(southern accent) I gotta say sugah... the new girl looks mighty fine!
I will miss Marina but change begets progress

The outfit is pretty decent but the satchel is obnoxiously huge...
Whatever happened to bag packs? Does Mr. Sugimori fear tough women? lol!

how sad, I was expecting a better update of Gold then this. Now I'm really curious to see what they did with Silver. Needless to say the girl looks really out of date, I preferred Crystal better but seeing as I am picking the male, I don't care. I the end all we'll see of the characters (other than from the trainer cards) is a top down view so it doesn't really matter I guess.

and IMO she does look like Mario, lol
I'm a guy, so I'll play the guy. I like him, he looks kinda cool.

I would have preferrec Marina tenfold, but I won't complain. What's the point of complaining, my only option is to get used to her (unless they randomly decide to change her, but when would that ever happen?)


i really like the update to Gold, they him less wide. However i don't know like the new girl, who me and brother refer to as Soul like how the female fro FRLG is called Leaf, i don't get why they just didn't update Kris


Bring on ze mudkipz!
I'll probably get both, so the male character in one, and the female in the other.

I do actually love how the male character looks. They've done a real good job of redoing the original Gold.
I'm going to play as the boy.

But... WHY? Why did they replace Marina? Now I'm even more heartbroken my Crystal is broken...

*Sigh* Oh well, I'll say this though... Why do most Pokemon heroes have a bad taste in hats? Only Red and Gold seemed to have good hats.


Hang on, why am I making a point of this? I never wear hats... -_-


Alpha Mightyena
I'll, of course, play a boy.
I like the look of the new girl, but I think they should have left well enough alone and kept Marina/Kris/Crystal. But, who knows? maybe this means they will do a Crystal remake...? Unlikely, but they have to do something with that character.


Queen of Charizards!
well both maybe girl for Heart Gold and Boy for SOul SIlver


Still gotta catch 'em all!
I hafta go with the boy! Since I had Gold originally I never new Marina so I'm not that distraught by her absence, oh well!


I'm going to be the girl, even though Marina was better.
I'm going to choose the boy, because I am a boy (wow).

Though, if I were a girl, I'd definately be the girl. I like it waaay more than Marina. And Marina is a Crystal -thing anyway - this is Gold and Silver, guys.


L or Kira?
I'm a guy, so I'll pick the guy.
But this new girl... wtf? Marina pwned but this...? She looks like she belongs somewhere in Kanto, not Johto!
But whatever. We'll get used to it all. In the meantime, though... wtf?


Lan challenges you!
Male, will name him Lan

BTW, she looks too much like Pokémon Ranger(Game) art style...

Let's compare:
Both use red shirts...
Soul(I call her that) uses blue "pants" and Gold uses black pants... Soul should aswell use black...
Gold uses a hat turned backwards... she just uses a BIG BIG HAT :|
The bags are, aswell different
Finally... look at the shoes... NOTHING IN COMMON... just the color

OH OH OH... Eyes... Gold's are dark blue... Soul's are brown...

She fitted Gold so much better than Soul ;_;

I actually like Soul. I'll miss Marina, but we can always pretend that they're the same person, right? (They'll probably do that in the manga, and possibly the Anime if they continue to make Marina cameos).


I like the new girl!-/\/\-

Focus Aipom

Why so serious?
Well I am a guy so I' m going to pick Gold.

It's sad how they got rid of Marina but like how the others said, this isn't a crystal remake and she kinda looks like Marina with different clothes and and no blue hair..We'll get used to it I think..Lol she actually does look like Mario! :)
