This is one of those games where it's all the little things that really add up. Even something simple like dialogue. I chose a girl trainer and I like that NPCs talk to me as if I'm a girl. I remember RPGs, even recent ones, where I would create a girl character and the characters would still talk to me as if I were a guy. Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology did that. One mission was where I had to spar with Stahn because he didn't want to spar with Rutee because she was a girl and he didn't like to hit girls. I looked at the screen dumbfounded and was all like, "Dude, *I* AM a girl!" On the opposite end was Fate/Extra where my female familiar started talking to me in a flirty manner and I was about to shout "cop out!" when one of the dialogue choices read, "You realize I'm a girl, right?"
Wonder trades are fun too.
I'm having too much fun with this.
