Meet the new female protagonist of Nintendo’s upcoming Pokemon X and Y 3DS games.

Well, okay, that’s not exactly accurate – most of you have already seen the female protagonist before. As a super-deformed 3D character model in the debut trailer Nintendo put out, that is.

Thanks to the upcoming issue of Coro Coro Comics, we now have the official 2D illustration for Pokemon X and Y’s female protagonist to look at (there were a few fan-drawn illustrations circulating around the Net, based on details from the 3D character model).

I’m not sure if Nintendo plans to put out a new Pokemon anime that incorporates some of the content from the X and Y games (oh, they probably will), but if they do, there’s a chance that she might appear on the show as one of the characters – since Ash Ketchum is probably still going to be the male lead, right?

The magazine scan also reveals that for the first time in Pokemon game history, you will be able to customise the look of the protagonist slightly, confirmation speculations by fans who thought that the designs this time around looked a little generic.

On these two particular pages of Coro Coro as shown in the image above, there was also mention that you could ride certain types of Pokemons in certain towns, which was mentioned in a previous post we did. Check that post out for more information on the new Pokemon who are slated to be announced next week.

Both reveals come from the issue of Coro Coro Comics due to hit newsstands in Japan a couple of days from now. This is the issue to buy if you want the full scoop:
