Racial controversy? Get real, if that's how you interpret that, it's your own damn fault.
That's like making a penis joke when someone hands you a hot-dog.

I love how people say this when we know absolutely nothing about Black and White.

Sure, we can make loads of assumptions about the games just by the titles - stuff like how they'll go back to basics and how they could be revolutionary - but that doesn't mean you can say they'll be better or worse than anything else because we know nothing about them.

It was confirmed months ago that the two games will be on the DS, in order to be compatible with all the games since generation III. After generation V, I would bet money a "reboot" would be in order for the 3DS that would no longer be compatible with previous games (it's like the release of Ruby/Sapphire all over again).

He was making an assumption how? He wants Pokémon Black and White to be better than Pokémon Diamond and Pearl. That's not an assumption. I'd quite like the year 2020 to be better than the year 2009. I know nothing about the year 2020 but that doesn't mean I can't hope it's better.

Yeah, sorry, completely misread his post. I thought he said "this game will be better than D&P." Ignore what I said, it's in the wrong context, in that case.

I have to agree though, as much as I loved DP, they still rank behind everything other than RSE in my opinion (and even behind Platinum thanks to its little additions). I would love for Black and White to blow everything out of the water.

Isn't the 3DS supposed to have bc with DS games? I think I misunderstood what you were saying.

Just let it happen.

Yes, the 3DS will be able to play DS games, but Black/White are meant for our current DS systems so you can trade between generations III & IV. However, after generation V (this is what I was getting at) - compatibility will most likely be dropped for the sake of outdatedness.

The introduction of Ruby/Sapphire was a shock to some people because of it's complete incompatibility with Red/Blue/Gold/Silver. However, it was necessary to move the series onward. We'll most likely see a complete overhaul of the game mechanics that would never work with current games (just like the vast changes made between Gold/Silver and Ruby/Sapphire).

I wouldn't be surprised if generation VI wants nothing to do with previous games. It's sad to think that we put all this effort in to the current games, knowing full well that we won't be able to trade them with newer Pokemon games 5+ years down the road.

I'm sure with Generation VI, it will be backwards compitable with all Pokemon DS games with something similar to Pal Park, so no worries there. Pokemon Black and White are very simple titles, I like that.

I like the idea that they're going back to simple names for the next generation. It was worst with Ruby and Sapphire and such because I was wondering how many more gems they were going to use! Anyway, I'm a little old for Pokemon now, and I've owned Red, SIlver and Diamond, so it's a little hard for me to get excited over a new generation. As far as I'm concerned, the first 250 or so were more than enough.

If news comes out that is cause to be excited then... I'll get excited. For now, just the name doesn't really say much at all.

I seriously hope that it stays black and white. People weren't racist when there was a black and white DSi, so maybe they won't feel this is racist?

How is the word 'black' racist and the word 'white' racist?
Grow up, saying that calling it Pokemon Black or White is racist is just immature.

I am very optimistic about these games. So far so good; I like the simple titles and the 2 new Pokemon already announced. More news is supposed to come soon, so I'm still hopeful!

This seems pretty neat, even though I'm still more then satisfied with Heart Gold.

I'd like it if the Pokemon White cartridge was white, but I think they stopped doing that with the DS/.

Running out of colors already Nintendo?

They'd be 'running out of colors' when the games are named 'Pokémon Peach Burst' and Pokémon 'Turquoise Tint'.

Who doesn't love random paint color names, btw?

There can only be one, like in that foreign movie where there could only be one, and in the end there is only one dude left, because that was the point.
