So, I'm afraid I have some bad news for those who liked customizing their trainer in X/Y, and that is that customization has been removed from OR/AS, and possibly every other Pokemon game to come, because of Junichi Masuda's opinion's:www.usgamer.net/articles/so-do…"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."

So, guess we're stuck with the default look for the whole game, which is a pity, especially since I kind of find his reason for this to be very weak. I liked customization because you could make your trainer look distinct and make it your own character rather than what's set. In previous generations, customization was impossible due to the fact that the games still used sprites and would take too long to design them, combined with technical limitations. I find this a huge step backwards for the franchise.
Then again, Game Freak is NOTORIOUS for removing features that people like, such as Secret Bases (heavily watered down in Gen 4) and the Pokemon following you in HG/SS. I do find it strange that they take out customization, yet they keep Amie and Super Training.
What I find weird though is that they take out customization and yet they keep Amie and Super-Training.
