    With the release of Black and white a few weeks away im interested in seeing what version you guys will get and also will this be the last Pokemon game for the standard ds before the 5th generation moves to the 3ds when the refined version of black&white comes out. by refined I mean like versions like emerald,crystal,platinum etc

    I think there was already a thread on this. But I'm getting Pirating Black. And yes, I do think this will be the last pokemon game on DS.

    You should get both in this case. It's not just version exclusive pokemon anymore, there is areas exclusive to each game.

    I'm getting both Black & White. I also got both Heart Gold and Soul Silver, because I like to collect Pokémon games.

    2 Copies of Both. [​IMG]

    2 copies that I can play, and two that I'll sell for hundreds of dollars in the next decade.

    I've grown sick of Pokemon, honestly. I'll probably pirate White, but if it has AP that prevents me from doing so I'll just not play it. Each new installment in the series is too similar to the last, and I'm tired of spending my money on the same game with more Pokemon or slightly altered mechanics. HeartGold really disappointed me. It wasn't a horrible game, but I played my old Silver cartridge to death from the time I was seven until I was like eleven, and it just failed to have the same feel as the game it was remaking. I also own a legit cartridge of Diamond, and actually enjoyed it less than even my old Sapphire, which I also played to death for several years.

    White is the one with the high-tech cities, so I'm leaning towards White. I like Zekrom more too, so White it is.

    I don't know why people don't like the games. Granted the new pokemon look shit but it's still pokemon at heart. I had a lot of fun with heart gold, arguably more fun then the original gold. (or not [​IMG])

    There are some areas that are only in the one version and not in the other, but there are also areas that looks different depending on your version IIRC

    I'm thinking of pirating getting both since there are exclusive areas.

    You're wrong, it's the opposite.

    http://www.serebii.net/blackwhite/versioncity.shtml

    Black version get black city and there is a city which is in both version that get a darker design.

    White Forest is a rural town and there is a city like I said above get a change of scenery depending on your version.
