The Official Pokémon Black & White Discussion Thread

Quote from: IGN
New Main Pokemon Game Announced
Next entry to follow Diamond & Pearl hits Japanese DS some time this year.

January 28, 2010 - HeartGold and SoulSilver are still the rage amongst Pokemon gamers, but Nintendo isn't letting Pikachu and crew rest. In Japan today, the company announced that a new main entry in the series is being developed for DS.

By "main entry," we mean a game in the line of titles that includes Red & Green, Gold & Silver, Ruby & Saphire, and Diamond & Pearl. The new game is set for Japanese release this year, meaning it will come four years after Diamond & Pearl's original release over there.

Nintendo did not share details on the game today, only hinting that it would have new Pokemon, take place in a new region, and feature new gameplay concepts.

But with the announcement out of the way, and with a 2010 Japanese release, expect to start hearing details shortly.

And then there's this;

Taking bets on Pokemon totals for this:

I'm wagering over 600, number hovering around 615-620.

So its about ass now huh? EVEN THE ASS HAS 'EXCEEDED'!

One mention of LEGENDS and everyone goes batshit.  :\

Yep, every time when someone mentions that game people get energized for an apparent reason whatsoever. It's like this everywhere else, trust me.

It got really messy to find my sprite and comic topic, so it's in my sig.

Oh god.
Instead of making MORE they should make the series better, and improve it instead of making more goddamn pokeymans.

they dont think it be like it is but it do

I hope the next starters are better than the last ones, they kinda didn't really appeal to me.

All the Pokemon designs in general have just gone way, WAY out into left field. Nebula Gray fits in with Gen 4; that's [tornado fang]ing ridiculous.

Let's hope to see some new and refreshing designs for the new pokemans.
And yeah, gen 4's starters didn't have much appeal to me either.

Charmander will always remain my favorite starter (and Charmeleon as my favorite Pokemon of all!).

Cyndaquil is the best, so cute, then killer towards its final levels. Though I don't really care for much of the new pokemon, but ah well, this will never die. I miss the old pokemon days.

So... what kind of pokemons will have higher authority than Dialga, Palkia, and Arcueus?

Treecko is the best starter because it evolves into Sceptile and Sceptile's official art makes him look fantastically smug.
And Chikorita because dinosaur covered in flowers woo.



seriously how smug is this guy damn

Even Lucario?

Okay, well, "all" is a strong word.

Compare...compare Darkrai to Gengar. Compare Combbee to Caterpie. Compare Claydol to Noctowl. Shoot, what the heck is Bronzong supposed to be?!

A few Pokemon can steer into the abstract just fine. But to start turning away from designs that were designed for "survival of the fittest"? And look goofy on top? That's not cute design or marketing appeal, that's just laziness.

They've reaped what they've sewn, though. They've introduced Arceus, and now there's no turning back but to put effort into future installments.
I should have stopped when I found out about EVs/IVs/Natures and Beauty Contests, but I played through Emerald anyway. Was...alright.

he's a playa and he knows it

Yeah, I've seen that look before...
You're right.

I'd like to see the starters have different types this time instead of the old Grass-Water-Fire chain. Maybe something like Flying-Fighting-Rock.

What happens in Vegas stays on Youtube. I also stream on Twitch from time to time.

I just want some of my old favourites to be easily available earlier in the game.
Like Doduo.
I love Doduo and Dodrio.

I dunno, gen 1 had some pretty [parasitic bomb] pokemon too. There were so many that were just larger versions of real world animals with changed colours. And then, y'know, Grimer. It's an animate puddle. It evolves into a bigger animate puddle. Voltorb. It's a ball that shoots lightning (?). It evolves into a bigger ball that shoots lightning. Hitmonchan. It's a boxer? And Magnemite and Diglett, while having nothing wrong with them themselves, have the laziest evolutions ever. Those two look especially bad compared to Metagross, who actually did the whole combining pokemon thing right.

There are plenty of badly designed pokemon in the later gens, but there are just as many good ones as in the early games. Breloom and Ninjask and Flygon and Milotic and Dusknoir and so on and so on and so on.





Metagross is the best pokemon ever so I'm going to keep complaining at you until you acknowledge it so just do it already. :<

150 is actually the number of Pokemon games Nintendo is going to make before the apocalypse.
