Default Good or Evil?

If you had the opportunity to play through a Pokemon game as either the typical hero/heroine or the villain, which would you choose?

I personally would play both, with the hero first and then the villain.

*points to Silver Version in GCeA*

It (playing the baddie) would make for a nice change of pace, espaically if you could choose to be redeemed at some point later in the game and play as some sort of anti-hero... walking both sides and stuff...

I figured most people would pick the villain.

Knowing the style of the world, the villain PC would probably be an Anti-Villain (Think a character along the lines of N Harmonia in the first game), but I'd probably play a game as both-preferably the hero first, then the (Anti-)Villain. Then again, that's why I buy two games.

I'd play the hero, always. I'm too much of a goodie two shoes not to play the hero. That and I couldn't bear the thought of hurting a digital "life-form". Yes I know, I am pathetic.

It'd be a nice breath of fresh air to walk both sides and play as a villain for once. Though it'd end up being an anti-villain like most people are saying. It could give you a new perspective perhaps, playing as Silver for example, showing him go through lots of struggle for not caring after his pokemon. Like most people I'd do both on different versions of course! :D

Instead of dealing with linear story, why not present multiple avenues and choices for the player so they can sculpt their own character instead of having to fit cliche archetypes and cookie-cutter characters?

In terms of villain, do you mean rogue (anti-)villiain or Team __ (anti-)villain?

I mean it would be pretty cool to play as a Team __ villain going rogue like N did and then fighting against the team I abandoned later on through my journey.

Whichever you decided to pick. It could be any of those choices. I do think it would be cool to play through a storyline like N's.

The manner of which I'd desire these choices presented to the player would be in a progressive, story driven fashion as well. Much like what is done by Bioware or Bethesda. I fear that the public will begin to shy away from Pokemon games if Gamefreak does not decide to implement these interactive mechanics soon. It is the standard in the video game industry to present meaningful choices for the characters to make, and to immerse you by emphasizing the fact that those choices influence the gameworld as well. They do not even have to change their current battle formula to do so.
