    <p align=" " class="none">There have been a lot of topics around several forums about Pokémon Black and White. This thread is for discussion about the game. I will add pre-release pics, information and videos when necessary.

    Pokémon Black and White is the fifth generation Pokémon game. It will have an increased use of 3D computer graphics. The only known new Pokémon at this point, are Zorua and Zoroark. The region's name is Isshu (イッシュ) and is located far away from other Pokémon regions. Zoroark's ability to take on the appearance of another Pokémon is called 'Illusion' (イリュージョン). The main characters are much older than in any other Pokémon game. The game will be released on the Nintendo DS. It has a Fall 2010 release in Japan and a Spring 2011 release in North America and Europe.</p>

    I'm quite excited these games. I think then new 3D game play might get slightly annoying though.

    I actually think the 3D style looks pretty horrid. They should have just stuck to making the basic terrain look better.

    HG might be my last pokemon game till they actually do something unique with the game. Only so many times I can use the same battle system and still be entertained.

    Nah. They're releasing it for the DS.
    It might have DSi/3DS exclusive features, though. Doesn't hurt to hope!

    Not possible. It's been said that it's being made for the DS and DSi handhelds on the Japanese website.

    Metroid is getting released like next month. Why would it be at E3? Unless the rumors of the push back for its release are true.

    I just woke up and read that it has been push back -

    Although still not officially confirmed it seems that Wii games Metroid: Other M and Sin & Punishment: Successor Of The Skies have been delayed in the U.S.

    Sin & Punishment has only been put back a few weeks and the UK date of May 7 so far appears unaffected.

    Metroid though has suddenly gone from August 15 to "to be decided". Whether this is due to the so far lukewarm response to its press demos is unclear.
