LMAO I read the topic wrong I thought it said Is Iris back and I was thinking is she back in in Pokemon X and Pokemon Y. I think she is African American.

YES


Like Lenora and Brock... no big deal. Also, Unova is based on New York City and the States.

No, she's Japanese.


Japanese isn't a race.


At the risk of sounding really stupid, don't Japanese and other asians (the Chinese) look different? I thought Japanese was it's own race.

Iris looks indian (India) to me. She doesn't look black or Filipino, and shes to dark to be Japanese.

She doesn't belong to a race. She's Iris. I'm almost certain that none of the pokemon humans even belong to a race, and if they do, it doesn't matter enough for people to care. This reminds me of back in the day when everyone kept asking whether or not Brock was black, yet no one in the anime seemed to care either way.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong but:
Race is Asian, Ethnicity is Japanese

And yes, Japanese and other Asians do (mostly) look different.

You can usually tell the difference, although I have seen some Japanese people who totally look Korean.
Also, I'm half Korean and have been told by just a couple Korean people that I look Japanese, lol.
