Default Anyone not excited for black/white?

My friends are pissed about black/white coming out. they are saying its just lazily thrown together. just because a few of the pokemon are kinda silly looking. I think the games will be awesome! anyone hating on these games like my friends are?

Well no I'm not hating on them, however I'm not really enthusiastic about them either. True I did spoil myself the game by watching walkthroughs on Youtube but even prior to that I wasn't as enthusiastic. Since when they first were introduced I wanted to just wait for the third version to come out like I did for Sinnoh so I wouldn't have to put myself in the position i did for Hoenn, which was buy 2 versions of the exact same game. This Generation I'm not going to be as stupid as I was during Hoenn.

Ya i like how they made the two versions way more different than just having different legendaries/exclusives. Honestly the only good third version was platinum. they changed the story line and actually made it different. I loved platinum. I think they will definately change up the third version of black/white so im gonna get black and the third version.

I'm trying to contain my excitement. I'm a veteran Pokémon fan (and a dedicated, hardcore, eager Pokémon Professor, the highest in all of this world), so it's pretty hard to do. But it'll allow me to wait, because even though it comes out in a week, it'll probably be a week and a half until it reaches my doorstep. Which is a little too long...

But I'm eager to see what's in store with Black and White. I've tried to keep spoilers on the down-low; I've done a horrible job trying to to not memorize all of them before the game comes out. Of course, over 150 Pokémon... I don't know. I just realized it's been a little over a year since Zoroark was revealed. And now here we are. Generation VI will be here before you know it.

I was actually one of those that disliked Black and White. Pixelation and zooming features.

But I tried to look past the things I didn't like. Overall I'm starting to want to buy it.

I like it, mainly for Doredia xD. The only new poke that caught my eye. I hope to get used to more pokes. I saw a polar bear in a youtube vid. I'm looking forward to favoriting more pokes as I play along.

The music is well, ok. I for sure am just gonna start playing Red/Lances Battle Theme song when I get to the Elite Four, and maybe find a city where a Pallet Town, Goldenrod song will fit.

Animated sprites are ok, more could've been done but I will take it.

The Gamestop guy, was shocked I was interested in the black version, since everyone preordered white for Zekrom. I unfortunately saw on Bulbapedia, Misdreavus and Doredia was only avail on Poke white.

I had no choice but to choose poke white.
Hopefully I can get someone to trade me a Houndour, and a Murkrow.

I loved Hoenn whet that hit, & I loved Sinnoh when that hit, so when Isshu came around I had to.
Now Unova(?yeah i know) is around the corner and i cant express how excited i am.
to top it off I shall embark my Journey threw Unova on my Bday whats not to love.

All my old friends(IMO) have come to life. I still frequent the Battle Subway as that is the best way to see the other pokemon alive..(yes im referring to the animated sprites..
early on in the game I noticed that my Snivy nn:Mr42o when put to sleep it actually closed its eyes... its so cool if you ask me.
.Dont like the fresh sprites.

Take a visit to your Pokecenter and battle some random trainer via WiFi.. friend codes (optional) and be prepaired to battle the way a real battle is supposed to be fought.. (well in my version *AP White there is NO ?Uber? ban. I find it to be BOSS.

o: I'm also wanting to battle a friend via Wifi.

I don't follow Uber banlists but I do take things from Smogon as guidelines but if someone uses a superpower pokemon, I have no problem against whether it's a uber or not/even if my team gets wiped. It's just a battle lol.

I kinda wish this game had feature HG/SS had with pokemon following you.

I like the new Region name, Unova pretty cool.

you know I thought about that very thing .. the only feature i could think of remotely like that is the pokemon waiting for you in the HighLink forest..

I dislike talking negatively about the Game Since there is alot I do like but for me oneother downside was the set up for the Items List and all that..I dislike scrolling down all my items like in Platinum?D/P.. the HG/SS pages of stuff was way easier for me to navigate through

awww. so B&W won't have the redesigned menu like HG/SS.

I liked that menu with the icons, it even has a picture of what spot the items are in the bag.

x_x it's a drag just to hold down just to equip a poke with an item or use an item. using D/P/PT menu

I’ll be honest, I haven’t preordered either Black or White and I honestly have yet to find a reason to do so. The graphics look nice, the battle animations are really a step above what we’re used to…

…but it’s still the same old game.

From the very beginning ever since I heard and confirmed a fifth generation was coming out, I facepalmed. After the third generation, there were already a LOT of Pokémon. The fourth generation felt like overkill, and this, with its many awkward Pokémon, feels like a catastrophe. I can just see them moving on to a sixth generation, a seventh generation, an eighth generation, and so on and so on until they just simply can’t milk the series anymore, and what we’re left with is a cesspool of other a thousand Pokémon.

Second, it kills me a little inside that they’re still resorting to the same, tired, overdone, and horribly boring formula they have been using ever since the first Pokémon game came out. Start a fledgling trainer. Get starter Pokémon from Professor So-and-so. Beat evil Team So-and-so. Get eight gym badges. Beat Elite Four. Become Champion. And then undergo the horribly boring grinding process to get your Pokémon to level 100 and/or give yourself a headache trying to catch every Pokémon only to realize at the end of it, you’ve accomplished absolutely nothing. Sorry, but it feels like whenever you start a new Pokémon game, you end up drowning in clichés. The last two Pokémon games I’ve played, Diamond and SoulSilver, are incomplete due to me getting tired of this routine before the game’s end, and I feel like B/W is going to be the same story.

So yeah, I can’t really say I’m excited.

I'd be more excited if I hadn't played the JP versions already. Heck, I still haven't beat the game yet. @_@

At least now I can familiarize with my friends.
