Pokémon X and Y will be the first core game in the Pokémon series to allow players to customise their characters. In the past players were unable to change the features of their trainer.

Players will be able to alter their protagonist’s appearance with options including hair colour and skin tone. Further details about the customisations have yet to be released.

Pokémon X and Y will launch exclusively on nintendo 3DS across all regions in October.
