Any chance you guys could embed your videos in YouTube format? Would make it a lot easier for us iPhone users to view

Well not too late for me
I sold my DSi so I didn't keep up with Black & White news but when I get my 3DS I'll get Pokémon White. I just like nature and beautiful old towns better than modern and futuristic cities.

@ Dylan1

I totally agree.

It's one of the very best designed and laid out games sites I've seen.

This game is by all means Not short at all! I got 32 hours just to get to the league the first time, (have to beat it a second time to actually win)
and my play time right now is 99:46

I got White Version for 2 reasons: I'll get to catch an electric type legendary, and the 8th gym leader is Iris instead of Drayden.



Detective_TeeJay said:

I really should have gotten White, for the reasons Rex mentioned plus the fact the EVERYBODY ELSE ALSO HAS BLACK!! D: D:



TingLz said:

@TeeJay: Even though I have Black, everyone I know has White

Therefore they must come to me to unlock stuff in their forest!!



CanisWolfred said:

I'm pretty glad I got Black, personally. It's nice to see a hyper Advanced city rather than an old one.



PSICOffee said:

That video explained nothing. So there is a city in the black version and a forest in the white version. What about them? This doesn't help me decide which version to get AT ALL.

Maybe it's not late... the purpose of the video might be to entice a few hardcore fans to pick up the other half and complete the set.

Anyhow, I've still never played a Pokemon game, but this one looks streamlined enough to tempt me, if only it were at a discounted price or something.

Reuniclus > Gothitelle
Braviary > Mandibuzz
White Forest > Black City
Zekrom > Reshiram, the white dragon with crotch fur
White Opeliud City > Black Opeliud City, though both of their musics are awesome
Iris > Drayden

So I think people should get White first.

What I found to be funny is that most people in Holland go for the white version. I don't know wich version is better, but it looks like people associate white more with positive stuff.

I haven't bought either version, but if I would I'll probably would go for the Black version, since I associate that with more edge. A edgier game. I could be totally wrong though!



Chunky_Droid said:

I just got the White version purely because Zekrom looked cooler, then I traded a Manaphy I got from the old Pokemon Ranger game on the GTS and got Reshiram anyway.

So meh!
