Strategy, basically. You've only got 4 slots, so make the most of them. If you could have as many moves as you wanted, all you would ever need is a single Starmie and pretty much nothing could stop you - Thunderbolt and Ice Beam together will hit absolutely everything for neutral damage except the Magnemite family and Volt Absorb Chinchou/Lanturn, and the rest of its movepool only serve to increase the number of types it can land Super Effective against. Twin that with a stellar SAtk stat and decent Speed... Starmie's already extremely strong on 4 moves.

Starmie is one of my favorite pokemon next to poliwhirl.

They really need to make serious gameplay changes. I'm tired of them recycling (practically) the same game over and over, just adding new pokemon, a new world, and a few new features.

doing so obviously works well

Your point is only valid until someone mentions The Lost Levels. :P

Besides, I never thought the Pokemon gameplay system worked exceptionally well in the first place. The fun wears off way too quickly (generation-wise, not time-wise).

I'll probably get black.

I've always based my Poke purchases off what color sounds and looks cooler and black is better in both aspects.

...For me its the same I guess, then again last time I've played a Pokemon game was back when Gold and Silver came out. Dunno why I chose Gold though...guess it was because I liked Ho-Oh more, don't remember. XD

I love Erica (Strike Witches), Eureka (Eureka Seven), and Tenma (School Rumble), stay away from them. xD
Update: Also love Yukari and Mizore from Rosario + Vampire.
Another Update: Also Yuuki...from School Rumble...
Yet Another Update: Also Amber and Xiao Pai from Rune Factory 4.

What's wrong with being able to swap moves a Pokemon has already learned? I mean, say at a Pokemon Center or maybe make one special NPC in the game that can do that?

He's referring to the fact that every generation has an extremely common Normal and Normal/Flying type on the first couple of routes in the game - Ratatta and Pidgey in Gen 1, Sentret and Hoothoot in Gen 2, Zigzagoon and Taillow in Gen 3, Bidoof and Starly in Gen 4.

Yeah. I mean, Geodude and Zubat have been in every single game, but we need a new version of Pidgey, new version of Rattata every generation, plus once in awhile a new Magikarp, new Caterpie/Weedle etc.

I'm also more of a single player gamer than a multiplayer, so I'd like to see a lot more gyms or the ability to revisit more past regions or having to defend your Pokemon championship or something.

Yeah....think I've heard something that this one will contain 16 badges...Maybe I'm just getting it mixed up with the Gold/Silver remakes, whatever...I'm hoping for a longer adventure as well.

I think they should not make Ruby/Sapphire remakes, and instead, the ability to travel to Hoenn by plane (new method of travel?) in Black & White. You can still get all the Hoenn Badges and maybe even fight Steven Stone. But I know alot of you disagree with me...

That reminds me...I miss that boat cruise part of the game...can't remember if it was from the 1st Gen or the 2nd...I hope they bring something like that back, like lockd said...a part ing the game where you travel by boat/train/airplane. Would be awesome.

Yeah, say for example in one of the City's in B/W, which I will call 'Dingo City' has an Airport, called like, Dingo Airport. Than you can take the Plane to a newly built Airport in like, Mauville City in Hoenn. An Airplane would be an awesome feature.
Edit: Also, the screenshot of the Bridge looks alot like the Hoenn Cycling Road. I know it probably isn't.
Edit 2: The Ruby/Sapphire remakes would be called 'Radical Ruby and Stellar Sapphire :p

Loving the look of this. I wonder though... given that GameFreak have said previously that they have 3DS development kits, and given the lower angle and total 3D employment here (DPPt and HGSS used 2D when inside most buildings), could Black and White be a game to 'bridge the gap' between the two consoles? Like when Oracle Of Ages/Seasons came out, putting it in a GBA would open up a special GBA-only shop. So whilst this is marketed and released primarily on the DS, reckon we could see it in real 3D when plugged into the 3DS? That would be awesome.

This is what I thought when I saw the screenshots too. Either way, I never buy the original games. I always wait for the special 3rd editions. That'll give me plenty of time to play and enjoy Gen IV, and wait on reviews to see if there's enough new content to justify a purchase.

I am way too lazy to think of something clever.

There's gonna be way too many pokemon come gen 5. I wish they would've added 50 good designs per generation instead of 100+ mostly so-so, including useless pokemon and retread pokemon (new Rattata, new Pidgey etc) and just plain ugly design pokemon. :(

This. Bulbasaur was great. BUT WHAT THE HECK IS CHIKORITA ANYWAY. Green blob-thing with a leaf on its head.

@Sneaker13 Starly is Pidgey 1.1 for sure. New Rattata... well there are loads of new Normal-type rodent creatures who are pretty boring. like Sentret, A fair number of the new Pokemon are retreading old ground.

Such as the only known 5th gen Pokémon, Zorua and Zoroark, are basically Dark-type Vulpix and Ninetales.

Yeah, it's really getting out of hand. Remember the time that you could sings along with the credits of the cartoons. That rap with all the Pokémon in it. It's a shame that after the second generation, it got way out of hand. I still prefer the first generation, no contest. I love Soul Silver which I'm playing now. But I think I will get Leaf Green someday. I can't stand playing a Pokémon for such a long time without Bulbasaur ;).

Why would we disagree with you? We get 2 awesome games for the price of 11, basically! :D

CoroCoro, a Japanese gaming magazine. Often breaks new Pokémon info first, they have strong ties with Game Freak. The screens can be seen at Serebii
