Well, when I compare Nate to the other male protags, there's Red, Ethan, Brendan, Lucas, and Hilbert. Red's okay, Ethan was pretty cool, Brendan was awesome, Lucas was kinda stupid, and Hilbert was just too much like Red (he even does that thing with his hat in his battle sprite).
Sure, Nate looks kinda weird, but I like him.
I'm not easily impressed; I'm usually oblivious to whatever's in front of me. Pokemon White 2 FC: 3139-7420-3142 - THIEF
