    Since Clemont (Citron) and Grant (Zakuro) both have fruit names in the Japanese version (Citron means Lemon in French, Zakuro is Japanese for Pomegranate) I hope some of the other gym leaders follow suit. Maybe one of them is on this list I compiled (no idea if any are used as names, but apparently Zakuro is an old Japanese name)
    Fruit- Japanese/ French
    Apple- Ringo/ Pomme
    Apricot- Anzu/......
    Blueberry- ......./ Myrtille
    Cherry - Sakurando/ Cerise
    Mandarin- Mikan/.......
    Peach - Momo/ Peche
    Pear - Nashi/ Poire
    Persimmon- Kaki/........
    Plum - Ume/ Prune
    Raspberry - Kiichigo/ Framboise
    Strawberry - Ichigo/ Fraise
    Watermelon- Suika/ Pasteque

    I know it's farfetch'd (pun intended), but after watching Pokemon Origins I could really see Red making an appearance. And so glad that Fuji'n mess (again, pun intended) was cleared up. Professor Fuji gave Red, in a Gen 1 timeline, Charizardite X! If that's not reason enough to appear, I don't know what is for Fuji...
    And Red having MegaCharizard X and the whole thing being aired so close to XY release seems great, I know it won't happen but heck, we can wish can't we?

    I just realized that we don't have all the Japanese Gym Leader names. It's so weird because we usually get them first, but now the exact opposite has happened since the English names were leaked before those. If I remember correctly the Japanese Gym Leader names are based on plants so it's very possible that the fruit trend will continue.

    Who are all the gym leaders? And is the romance thing real?

    Wow, our male gym leaders are varied.
    Gotta say Wulfric is kinda just bearishly cute!

    So now we have Sycamore and Wulfric, major cuties!

    It is Shauna. But it's nothing serious, she just says things that alludes to it (things like "I've never watched fireworks with a boy before"). It's unknown if it's still her for the female protag.

    Burgh is definitely at least metrosexual. I just dislike how he plays off of the gay artist stereotype. And how he's too fabulous. Too much jazz hands.

    Anyway it'd be pretty awkward if the game asked "What's you're gender. Oh and by the way, are you gay?" It's not quite necessary to please all the minorities, I guess GF is keeping everything simpler for now. It'd be a hassle to represent every mixed-race skin tone and albinism and sexuality. It's a stretch just to release straight relationships.

    Fantina speaks English in the Japanese version, not French.

    Aside from the fact that Fantina originally spoke English in the Japanese versions of D/P/Pt, I just realized who Olympia reminded me of. I kept thinking she looked like Argenta and while I still see some similarities between their designs, she really does resemble Fantina more. I suppose it's possible that they just look alike without being related kind of like Agatha and Bertha (I don't think it was ever confirmed that they were related).

    Like 1 person said, the player character could either be paired with Serena or Shauna if they're a guy or Calem or Trevor/Tierno if they're a girl depending on their interactions.
