Finally, Pokemon Gets Ethnic

by
I may sound racist on this matter, but to those of you who read pages 25 and 26 of Mario Project 2, you know where I'm coming from on this.

if there's one thing Game Freak and The Pokemon Company tried to do with trainers in Battle Revolution, it was to try to make them unique.  and how did they do this?  they let you change your character's threads.  so when I hit up the pokemon website and checked out the main hero, I found out that you will not only be able to change your attire, but finally.... FUCKING FINALLY, we can change the character's skin tone.  and they use the basic three complexions: caucasiod for the white people, mongoliod for the middle eastern and asian people, and negroid for us black folks.  what even better, the friends of the players are ethnically diverse.

LTC, but at least we finally get some ethnicity in the trainers now.  I mean, the only real black trainers in game so far have been gym leaders.  now they just need one for all my hispanic peoples.  but enough about my dollar and change on the issue, what do you guys think of this development?

To be fair, it probably took so long due to the fact that Pok'e mon is originally from Japan, and its not QUITE as ethnically diverse as Europe and North America.  Look at the Jinx fiasco. If I recall, they meant her to look like a ganguro if I recall, someone thought Jynx looked like the racist cartoon style people of African descent were drawn in. Even WITH the long blond hair. They probably didn't want to risk any more "whistle blowers".

the Jynx issue was bad PR for them, but this could've been done in Battle Revolution since they were able to change the clothes then.  besides, times change after all
