Jesus tap dancing christ.

First off, I don't say this often about fictional characters because I don't care, but god dammit Bianca looks adorable. Second, I finally get to destroy Steven again for revenge for how he pummeled me in Ruby.

Also robot tyranitar vs typhlosion, yes.....

And N, just because.

............ Ok NOW I'm sold!

And HOLYFUCKINGSHIT N'S BACK!

And that's before I noticed that Blue, Giovanni, Lance, Steven, and Cynthia are all gonna be in the same game together AS OPPONENTS!

And the Genie trio actually look GOOD now! Why those weren't their original designs I fail to understand.

Did I miss anything else?!

>BW sagas take place years after GSC/DPPt

>Brock and Misty have their exact same stock art from HGSS, depicting them as 16-18 and 13 years old, respectively.

Conclusion: Dialga is pulling an enormous prank on either Unova, or the entire world minus Unova. Always hated that dragon.

Conclusion: Dialga is pulling an enormous prank on either Unova, or the entire world minus Unova. Always hated that dragon.

Conclusion: It's just stock art and they'll get new art later, or the World Tournament is of dubious canonicity because they couldn't be bothered to update all the designs. Could go either way.

Apparently there isn't coding in BW indicating that the Kamis have new formes, which there was for Kyurem. This makes me wonder if the Sacred Beast Formes are a response to the criticism the Kamis got for being "recolours" - and let's face it, it was a fair criticism. They now have more of an individual identity. I'm quite happy with them only being in the AR Searcher (for now).

In response to all other revelations, I'll only say that I'm really liking this sequel approach to the old third version. I hope Gamefreak do something like this for future generations - and I think they probably will, as I get the impression they're trying hard to make different versions more distinct from one another than they used to be to justify having multiple games at all.

This game now looks incredible. All the fanservice is great, and the Kami trio are no longer colour swaps of each other so I hate them less.

YES.

And N, and Bianca, and Cheren. I want to see the player characters from BW1 as well, but I doubt it.

This is continuity porn right here folks.

Well granted that I can see them more clearly now I have to say that the kami trio's new forms make them look a hell of a lot cooler now. Plus the gym leader and elite four rumor is true after all? Awesome. And Bianca, Giggity Giggity Giggity!

I'm hoping that they'll get a Red-style endgame battle, given that canonically they must have existed. They will have to be mentioned, at least.

Wow. Very awesome stuff right here. Although Cheren's role as a normal type Gym Leader, and being in the first Gym kinda bugs me. He should be part of the E4 or something less crappy.

It's only been a few years. He has a long ladder to climb before he's allowed to rise that high. Although I guess the comparison to Blue isn't a flattering one in that regard...

They made Bianca look like a hipster.

Alright guys, no use discussing it anymore. GOTY. Called it.

Agreed. This is definitely shaping up to be the best pokemon game of all time. Gamfreak is really going to have to be at the top of their game if they want Generation 6 to top this.

Before we call GOTY, they better have fixed the level up system, reimplemented the VS Seeker (or equivalent) and added something worthwhile to the post-game.

Agreed because this needs emphasis.

Black and White are my least favorite Pokémon games ever. They had several neat enhancements, such as infinitely reusable TMs, but for every improvement it had, it also took some steps back. The exp. system is only really useful for quickly evolving weaker Pokémon to fill your Pokédex. There was nothing to do in the post-game; the towns in the east side of Unova had nothing eventful, and I don't count finding all the remaining Team Plasma sages an event - they were glorified TM hunts and you got nothing else out of it in turn. The lack of normal rebattles is terrible and going into the sports stadiums everyday is just not as fun. Another complaint I had during my second playthrough was that the new Pokémon don't nearly have as diverse of a movepool this time, so it was very hard choosing what combination was best for me. I'm really glad about the expanded regional Pokédex because I think my team is going to almost entirely consist of pre-Gen5 Pokémon this time around.

At the same time all these complaints I have only make me hope that BW2 is better in every single way imaginable. The first games had a lot of improvements that I hope stay with the series for good (but knowing Game Freak, who wants to bet that they'll just get rid of them like they do for every nice thing they introduce), so I really hope they put them to good use in the sequel this time. Unfortunately I doubt that they'd get rid of the exp. system at this point, but things such as an empty post-game just have no excuse.

All the enhancements in the world don't mean a thing if I don't have fun during the ride while I am at it. Exploring a new region is always a magical experience, but I had the least fun with Unova's. And once you beat the game, you might as well just say you're done. There wasn't anything substantial to keep me hooked like previous Pokémon games did. But to be honest, all my negativity toward BW1 makes me hopeful, not pessimistic, that BW2 will be much better games. So yeah, despite my initial shock reaction being "I wanna shoot myself in the head" since I really did not want to revisit Unova, I have to say I am looking forward to these games, if cautiously so.

And give me my run button back. Every time I bring up this complaint, people tell me that BW/HGSS were developed by different teams. Well this time, there is no reason not to include it. I gotta go fast wanna run all the time without holding down the B button; is there any point where I would not want to go faster? Except for those sand pits in the desert relic dungeon.

I hated the story, too.

Trainers who stand on one spot and constantly turn in one direction around will always face you if you run /funfact

Seesh....those guys over at Pixiv.net have been rolling in on the pictures, man those guys over seas are freaking fast!

Yeesh...every single Gym leader and Champion...dag!

This is most good, as to why they didn't have that, nor Gym rematches or anything worthwhile Endgame is excellent. Nintendo might as well open up their big fat wallets at let the money pour right in.

Wouldn't people want to like, arrest Giovanni?

Maybe Unova just can't arrest him, or he's going under a different identity, or...something. I doubt there's much story at all to the gym leader refights but hey. tongue.png

I thought Giovanni was dead given that special event in HG/SS. Maybe its some kind of time paradox machine.

People STILL believe Gio committed SUICIDE for losing a Pokemon battle with a 10 year old?!

It's not like he tossed himself in a VOLCANO.

Poke'fans man
