I'm a male and both characters don't look bad. I always choose the male character for the past games while sometimes picking female. The female character is not ugly if you know what I mean. I wouldn't mind staring at her overworld sprite instead of the male's. I'll let you guys decide my Pokemon fate. Is yes gets the most votes, I'll pick male, if no gets more votes, I'm picking female.

It's not weird to me. Depending on the game and if there's major differences for gender, I'll play through as both. For Pokemon, I tend to just go with my gender, but I say play whichever you want.

If people make a big deal about something so insignificant, then they're the ones with the problem, not you. It's not weird at all.

No. I picked female in Diamond because the male looked pretty lame. Pick what you want and what you think is better-looking, not what your gender is just because.

Yes, you can choose whichever gender you like. It's not strange to play as the opposite gender at all.

Woof...

you can choose whatever you like. i usually choose the male character in my first playthrough to feel more attached to the character, as i am the MC and i am exploring the world, so i kind of feel more happiness while discovering new things.

but when i restart the game (for whatever reason), i like to change and sometimes i choose the female character, mostly for her design.

I don't normally like the looks of the Males characters, so no for me.

No it isn't, and anyone who says otherwise is surely insecure. I was originally thinking of going with Serena, but when character customization was revealed, I decided to switch to Calem.
