Diantha screams champ, and we're due for another female champion.

I would be happy. She looks fierce.

Actually, there is a reason. I just don't like females in general that much. Call it whatever you want, but that's why I always put males first, and that's also why I rather see a male champion, a male professor, etc.

Okay, so it is just sexism then. Just checking.

you sound like you want 4 more female trainers before another male trainer

Not necessarily. I just don't like the implication that's so often thrown out that we're done or that we don't need any more just because we have some. We haven't "met our quota" or any such thing, and a small number of token characters doesn't excuse a broadly overarching lack of diversity.

also don't bite people heads off for having an opinion

I will happily bite folks' heads off when their opinions are backed up by nothing but blatant sexism. If their opinion had been backed up by something else totally reasonable (and even I could think of such a reason easily), then it would be no problem.

or think that it's a conspiracy against women.

It is, though. That it is should be obvious.

It should be Mewtwo.


I like this. We'd only ever hear arguments about whether that mewtwo is a male or female though

But we are done. We do have a few female champions (two to be exact) and the quota has been met. We do not need more.

Really, if you want to be taken seriously, you should probably give some good reasons as to why you are so misogynistic.

I just want the champ to be interesting and threatening looking. Dont care about the gender.
Good: Blue, Lance, Cynthia
Bad: Iris, Alder, Wallace

as for sexism claims, wanting females for the sake of females is just as sexist as wanting males for the sake of males.

I'm pretty sure at this point at they're just trolling and that we can disregard.

That's not how that works, like, at all. When a problem of inadequate diversity or representation is pointed out, you don't fix the problem by saying that the only way to fix the problem is to ignore it.
