So what next? A native american protagonist? An eskimo protagonist? We should have options for all ethnicites right?

No, because the pokemon world isn't based on the real world so there's no need to be politically correct. Should it have been more ethnically diverse from the beginning? I'd say so, yes. But it's too late to change it now. I mean, practically everyone except Lenora is not black so how does she even exist? Is she a mutant or something?

(BTW before you accuse me of being a racist christmas cracker, the ethnic majority of the Pokeworld are asians.......there are probably more black people than caucasians in these games. Surge is the only caucasian I've seen I think.)



Umm I would say all of the main characters and most people are Caucasian actually. Just look at them. Just because the games are Japanese does not mean they fill the game with Asians. Look at the zelda series, clearly based off of medieval Europe.

Japanese love to make white main characters.

I agree with you on the Zelda thing also Dark souls is an Asian game where most of the characters have a Western appearance - aside from the aptly names SHIVA OF THE EAST. And with pokemon yeah most look Caucasian - a few look Asian however like Koga and Janine and the martial artist's. Pokemon seems to have a moderatly good amount of diversity these days especially considering the new champion is Black and the previous one was the anime version of a Native American.

We need a gay black protagonist who is also very religious.

Rule of thumb is that in anime and games with anime-style art, if a Caucasian-looking character has a hair color that isn't blond, orange, red (closer to natural red, rather than bright red, purple-red, or blood red), or certain shades of light brown, the character is supposed to be Asian.

Well, there are lots of Russians in Japan, so will we see those before blacks?
