Game Freak’s Junichi Masuda has confirmed that Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire won’t feature the recently introduced trainer customisation. Masuda says that the introduction of customisable trainers in Pokemon X & Y was a special thing for the Kalos region. With this game Masuda says that the team is currently focussed on the adventure elements. Here’s what he had to say.
“In terms of the customization of the trainer, that was really kind of a special thing for the Kalos region, which featured this kind of motif of France and really focused on this beauty and fashion aspect, which is why it was a prominent feature in that game. For this game, we’re focusing on adventuring elements, so we don’t have the actual free customization of the trainer, but you’ll see the items you use throughout the game visually represented; for example, when you’re underwater, you’ll have this little mouthpiece that lets you breathe. So there’s some cool stuff for how your trainer changes clothes and puts on accessories throughout the game.”
