Representation matters.
>>
>>48838823
if it makes her feel good what do I care? it has no impact on me or the game when I play it
>>
It doesn't matter, but at the same time the choice doesn't detract from the game so I don't care.
>>
Eh whatever.
There's never been any really characterization or roleplay in pokemon.
>>
>>48838860
This. At most it's got some good AGP going but that's about where it ends.
>>
>>48838823
Black Dawn is hot tho
>>
>>48838823
If you prefer blackwashed Dawn over white then something is legitimately wrong with you.
>>
>>48838869
See >>48838870

>>48838869
The brown one is kinda cute, but I can't say I like either of them more than normal and blonde.
>>
Why are black people unable to relateor empathize to people outside if their skin color?
>>
>>48838823
How does it matter?
I have never felt bad because the protagonists aren't latinos, I don't understand
>>
>>48838915
>having more options is a bad thing
Dexit was still bad.
>>
How is Glitch so annoying? It's like she sacrificed an actual personality and made Twitter her only social aspect.
>>
It probably matters to people of color yes, so what?
Name five games that don’t allow you to be white enough.
>>
>>48838924
?
>>
>>48838823
"Representation" should only matter to children. Fortunately, that's Pokemon's main audience but adults should be capable of enjoying any experience even with a character that doesn't look like them.
>>
She does realize that you could customize your race in previous games, right?
>>
>>48838964
Dont question it she just needed the internet points.

I think you chuds need a serious eye opener to what it's like living as a black person of colour:
>be me, black father of 5
>its just before christmas 2013 and im about to get my third daughter pokemon Y for it
>go to the counter of the game store with the game
>some white ass bitch who probably aint ever taste pussy before sees me, a grown ass 6'4 african american pull up with the game
>he whispers something to his friend who hurries off
>he tells me he's surprised to see me get pokemon as a person of my ethnicity
>I ask the candy ass faggot cracker what the fuck he means
>he starts getting all defensive and says 'its cool bro' and 'chill tyrone'
>I drop the game and jump over the counter to jump his milk no culture havin ass
>just as his homeboy comes running back with the mall cop
>mall cop calls the real cops
>they fucking arrest me on the 2nd
>don't get to celebrate christmas with my family because of pokemon

REPRESENATION MATTERS YOU CRACKER NAZIS

Out of the people you think are against representation, 0 are actually against it.

You're virtue signaling.

From a scientific standpoint, studies show that representation in various forms of media is important to how people build their perspectives on their own ethnic-racial group, as well as that of others. Which means including minorities in your white washed games actually improves race relations by helping to deconstruct harmful stereotypes. So steps like giving a minority child the opportunity to have a fictional create-a-character look like them actually helps white people in a roundabout way.
Also, off topic, but I like Glitch's old music remixes, and she's a low key hottie. It's just a shame that her personality is so trash. It seems like it'd be a chore just to hang around her long enough to get in her pants. To the point where it's probably not even worth it in the end.

How can you not look at that Dawn and feel repelled? Dark skin doesn't even suit her.

And no, I'm not white.

Trying to hard Joe

This thread is the reason I wished white genocide was a real thing
>>
>>48839166
you can't even refute her
>>
>>48838823
hey that's cute
>>
Ok but where's the black Dawn with big lips and feet? This is a whitewashed one.
>>
>>48839185
don't have 2 cuz I didn't read it

>protagonist should be black even though she's 100% canon japanese

Mr Merriku showing his true colors kek

yep at the end of the day I win
>>
>>48839213
>waste their time
it's really trivial to program something like this
>>
>>48839464
but apparently adding an option to disable a mechanic is too much to ask
>>
>>48838823
wow thanks for posting this OP! it was really good and necessary! btw kill yourself!
>>
>>48839174
This but for non-white genocide
>>
>>48839476
well I'm not defending these games, they're clearly rushed trash

Damn Japan, always putting so many Japs in their games.
>>
>>48839606
>reply is racist but the replied post isn’t
Are blacks really this fragile?
>>
>>48839659
Yes. Literally nobody ever complained about the lack of white representation in Pokemon games.
>>
>>48839659
White genocide obviously isn't happening, whites have never been oppressed. Comments like >>48839174 come from a place of frustration over racism that white people are complacent in. Meanwhile, minority genocide is very real, and everyday is a struggle for just basic human rights.

One is just punching up. The other is a literal threat that puts people in danger.
>>
>>48839669
>yes
Thanks for agreeing :)
>>
I think it finally dawned upon me what is wrong with black skinned Dawn aside from being non-canon - not enoigh contrast between the skin, hair and eyes, making shit blur onto each other, making details harder to make out and straining your eyes. Basically, same mistake as with Barry when he was first shown in the trailers.
>>
>>48838868
AGP?

>>48839680
>whites have never been oppressed
Move to rural Japan or China and see how totally not racist you'll be treated there.
>>
>>48839680

I can already tell you have never been to Africa.

lots of net girls like this.

>>48839704
the Japanese aren't oppressing you by calling you a gaijin.
>>
>>48839731
what does this have to do with pokemon
>>
>>48838823
that dawn is even darker than her
>>
>>48839694
Autogynephilia. Basically self-inserting as a girl in porn without being trans.
>>
>>48839755
The OP is about representation in Pokemon, isn't it? That's obviously what this discussion is about

>>48839772
Literally no one is genociding white people, no one has even ever been killed for being white. This doesn't happen and is just a conspiracy spread by magats to make themselves feel oppressed when they're the oppressors.
>>
>>48838823
Dawn is 100% black!
>>
my bait thread worked ur all gonna get banned by my friend (whos a jannie) for off-topic posting.

i love pokemon and hate racists, thank you for racial diversity ILCA
>>
>see black person, either IRL or in a game
>chimp out
This is what years of social media addiction does to a retard.
>>
>>48838823
It doesn’t. Pokémon still DESPERATELY needs a character creator option though.

Everyone on Twitter writes like that.

The delusion
>>
>>48838823
The reason I don't care is because these same people Yassing over blacks in these games are the same people who kept saying I wasn't black for playing it. Now that shit's a fad they want to take part. Fuck them.

Fuck them and they know who they are.
