As a brown skinned user as myself, I would actually feel like Iam in the game rather than me controlling some random character's life.

Yeah it's nice to see Game Freak realize their target demographic includes more than Japanese and white kids

They're an ambiguous pale color. Obviously they're targeting Japanese kids as an audience but they're still trying to include their American (predominantly white) audience

Part of the reason manga is such a widely utilized style is because its stylistic origins come from western cartoons:

Ok so the real question is, does the player's mother change to the same skin tone as the player?
