I think the point everybody is missing is that this game is the creation of the developers that work at gamefreak. They can make their characters any way they want, be it male, female, black, white, hispanic, etc. They do not owe it to you or anyone else to make their games "diverse". If you don't like it, don't buy/play the game.
Now...I say that as a black/white male. My favorite champion is far and away Cynthia. I generally connect with females a little easier than males (lot of time in the friend zone unfortunately), so I don't really have much of a preference either way. I also like a strong female lead. I even prefer femshep in mass effect and my girlfriend of six years (soon to be fiancÚ) tends to be the more dominant one in our relationship.
I don't think it should matter what race/gender the pokemon champion is. What does matter is that they are an interesting character. I'd like to see a female of spanish descent honestly. As long as the game is fun then that's all that matters to me

why not both. a champion double battle...sounds cool
Now that's a nice idea. A champion couple.
That would actually be cool. But the amount of fan fiction that would be made about them would be a little unbearable.
Let's face it, there's gonna be unbearable fanfiction about the champion even if they're an old man in a wheelchair. And look at it this way, at least that way, those two would be an official couple, not a fan made one.
