We should choose what sort of color scheme we're going to use for our character tables. Mapsal313 has suggested that for Pokémon characters, the color should match the Pokémon's primary type; it would probably be a good idea to use the standard colors of types used in the Pokémon games, seen below with their hex value (remember: when using a hex value, put a # sign in front of it)…
This still leaves certain questions for Pokémon box colorations, such as Cynthia's Pokémon, Alder's Pokémon, or various Frontier Brains' Pokémon; what do you guys want to do for trainers who don't specialize in a specific type?
For humans, the path is less clear.
They could all have one color, marking them as humans
They could have colors designating which region they are associated with
For gym leaders/elite four/champions, they could have a color showing their specialty type (though this is problematic for those who don't specialize)
For villains, maybe they could have a color pattern (like a black background and red font for Rocket members, or blue and orange or white for Plasma)
Protagonists could have colors matching their names (though how this works for Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, I'm not sure…)
Or any other suggestions you have! Just keep in mind, we don't want an overload of color schemes to keep track of ;)
