    This video game designed with children in mind, a mostly gender balanced playerbase, and a cheerful light tone has something that could be construed to be feminine in it! The very idea of being forced to play a character that doesn’t match my identity in every way(if I like water types) is appalling.

    As an adult white male, I cannot fathom any problem more severe. Also what’s with all these feminists suggesting that women should maybe represent more than 16% of all playable characters in AAA games? How oversensitive can you get? It’s censorship, I tell you.

      Is there any room for a feminine design in video games with these guys? (I suppose it could be worse…)
