One of the things that Pokemon has been pushing with recent games is making the character look more like you. They have went beyond just “Are you a boy or a girl?” Now you can have your character look like you to your skin, hair and eye color. Your true self can finally come out in Pokemon.

And that is something Bonaneh is thankful for. Just the simple addition of asking “What is your style?” can mean so much to so many people.
