    ...Since when? It was a lot better than Gen-4 IMO.

    The pokemon designs seem very ripped off of Gen1.
    Well, a lot of them, though under 50% anyways.


    Gameplay wise, 5th gen is much better. Magic Bounce was their greatest addition.

    Because they made it so you can't catch the older gen Pokemon normally.
    People missed their Machops, I guess.

    What do I expect ?

    More of the same old shit repackaged and rebranded as a "new" game.

    Some of you will love it - I genuinely hope you really enjoy it.
    It's just not for me.

    Nothing.

    When you put your expectations bar really, really, really low, the game still has slim chances of positively suprising you. Otherwise you're in for a delicious meal of re-hashbrowns.

    I quit Soul Silver halfway through while I played Black once and then White twice (the second time together with my son, which was more him playing and me reading what's happening, since he can't read yet ;>) - so I'd definitely say get White!

    And as for the Pokenerds not liking B/W, I've gotta say that B/W was the first Pokemon game I really enjoyed and finished playing since Red. So I wouldn't say all Pokenerds hate B/W. ;>

    I think it will really be a direct sequel to black and white.
    Meaning it will definitely star the same characters.
    That it is a sequel doesn't necessarily mean it will be in Unova. Maybe it's Unova + some other region or it can even take place in a totally different region (I hope).
    I do wonder what they'll do with the starters and the gyms though.
    Maybe they cut gyms out and you have to do something completely different, but this is just a speculation of course.

    I think you mean some don't like B/W.

    B/W was the first Pokemon game I actually enjoyed playing, the others felt so off somehow. Also in B/W you can battle pokemon and other trainers in hot pants.

    I actually have moderately high expectations for this game. The fact of it being a sequel really intrigues me. Don't get me wrong, Gold/Silver made good sequels to Red/Blue, so maybe B2 and W2 might feature very similar features to Gold/Silver? Maybe another whole region, a total of 16 gym leaders including the original Unova leaders. Imo, the new dragon mixes look more badass the original three themselves.

    20 years old, and I never thought I'd still be hooked on Pokemon. Have a special place in my heart for each and every main series game.

    I'm 26 already and also still hooked, or at least still interested, and my son is totally into the TV series and the games... ^^;

    I'm totally intrigued in a direct sequel, I was already quite happy about the intro movie in B/W and that there was some more focus on story compared to the other games, so I'm really curious what they'll do with a direct sequel.

    I'm also pretty excited about Pokemon vs Nobunaga's Ambition, hope that will get localised as well, I had always thought the Pokemon franchise would be good SRPG material. *_*


    Yeah, but majority sounds still a little exaggerated to me, I know lots of old Pokemon fans who found B/W rather enjoyable. :)

    That "argument: invalid" makes no sense. Your basis of a general consensus of people who enjoy the game is solely off of people you know. I know a ton who enjoyed it and few who hated it, but I don't boast saying the majority love the game.

    Of all of the responses I've seen for it, the vast majority did not like this generation. I myself thought it was okay, so I'm not just trying to say my opinion is right.

    I'd expect it to be on the freaken 3DS not the DS for one and to take advantage of the 3DS

    You made a post saying the majority of people hated the game, then when someone else said that they know a ton of people who like it, you followed with "argument: invalid" whatever that may mean. Anyways, yes, you are trying to say that your opinion is right or the majority vote.
