Pokemon Black & White update

Hey everyone,

These games have been out in Japan for a while, and I know a few people that have played them… but I haven't heard much about the games.

Are they any good? Or just the same old thing and the fake "3D" buildings get old after a while?

I'm waiting for the Aussie release, but seems strange that I haven't heard many mentions about it. Almost as if it's a disappointment to the series.

Also, anyone know if alternative names have been suggested for the western release - or will they remain with the black/white names and face racism claims? (the world's gone nuts with political correctness)

Edit: Looking at google, there seem to be plenty of 10/10 review scores… but mostly from Japanese websites. And we all know how much the Japanese over-react when it comes to Pokemon :) So I'm taking those scores with a grain of salt at the moment…

Oh, no spoilers please! … if there's something unique and amazing about this game, please try to be a bit vague as I'd still like to be surprised when I eventually get the game.

i played black for a while. it's pretty good and pretty different compared to the remakes preceding it.
i can't read japanese so it got old quick, not knowing the story and not understanding things. but overall i would say this one is worth the monies.
it didn't seem like some slapped together remake with new features as so many before have been.
hell, previous remakes would have simply been DLC had they been on a console or pc.


signature too damn long!

Yes, I can imagine that. Pay a few dollars to expand your Pokedex. Or pay a premium to unlock the Mew or Celebi DLC.

Good to hear, perhaps the reviews have some merit then.

All I can find in terms of a release date is "Spring 2011", which I assume means Autumn for us here in Australia (February, March, April). Wish there was a more definite release date.

Doesn't this one use the DS Headset for matchups via wifi?

BEST POKEMON GAME EVER!! it basically follows the same storyline as the rest, except for the end, where it changes and becomes unique like no Pokemon game before, ending in an epic dragon battle with N. you have to play this game! i rate it 10/10, though when they make Pokemon Grey, i can see what will happen. ;)

EDIT: release date in the US is March 6th 2011. Australia is getting it a month later.

Thanks FoTwinny and fingerz for the release information!

@Adultery: No idea. But as I don't have a DS headset and don't plan on buying one… I hope it isn't required for online battles.
