If my feeling is right, the third version for 5th gen is Pokemon Gray. I dunno why.

Anyways, weird going back to basic colors after what we had for the last two generations. Could be interesting.

Maybe they'll be using retro graphics/regions?

Or possible multiple regions and you visit them again?

04-10-2010, 12:14 AM
Retro...ewwwww. I'd take anything over those...

I really want to care about this, but I don't. It's just not surprising anymore, all these new Pokemon coming out.

Pokémon Black and White is the fifth generation Pokémon game. It will have an increased use of 3D computer graphics. The only known new Pokémon at this point, are Zorua and Zoroark. The region's name is Isshu (イッシュ) and is located far away from other Pokémon regions. Zoroark's ability to take on the appearance of another Pokémon is called 'Illusion' (イリュージョン). The main characters are much older than in any other Pokémon game. The game will be released on the Nintendo DS. It has a Fall 2010 release in Japan and a Spring 2011 release in North America and Europe.

There's a new Random Match wireless feature which allows you to face different people around the world. You can also apparently upload your Black/White save file to the internet. Why? We don't know at the time.
It is also hinted that your Pokémon follows you because in one screenshot Celebi is following you.
Reshiram is the White Yang Pokemon and has "Turbo Blaze" as its ability while Zekrom is the Black Yin Pokemon and has "Terra Voltage" for its ability. Typical...Yin & Yang theme.
To get Zorua in Black/White you have to transfer the Celebi from the movie download.

That's a great summary! I was looking for information about the game, but there were just bits and pieces everywhere, I didn't bother...

07-06-2010, 02:15 PM

This is where I check for updates........
I'm pretty psyched about the new games, but I hate what they did with the fire startrer; a pig?? seriously?? The Pig should've been the water type (slowpoke)..........

07-08-2010, 10:47 PM

07-12-2010, 12:23 AM
i hate pokemon, yeah i said it. (no offense)

How can you hate Pokémon??

Just kidding, everyone has different opinions. Whats odd about these games is Pokemon Black features the White Pokemon (Reshiram), and vice-versa...........

09-12-2010, 01:18 AM
even though i have a flashcart.
im still buying the legit version (:

09-20-2010, 08:26 PM
I would play the Japanese, but the combination of the language and the freezing problems is keeping me away. Hopefully, the legit version will work flawlessly.

09-20-2010, 08:33 PM
You do realize the freezing is caused by your cart right? :P

09-20-2010, 09:48 PM
It is?? Oh, and has anyone found an English patch thats legit?? please inform if you have

09-20-2010, 10:06 PM
