An All-New World Filled with All-New Pokémon

Pokémon Black Version features the same handheld RPG and Adventure gameplay that has consistently thrilled Nintendo DS players, both young and more experienced, but it also introduces players to the all-new Unova region. Brought to life with improved graphics, Unova is a mix of urban and natural landscapes in which players are just as likely to encounter skyscrapers and bridges, as they are to walk alongside mountains and seascapes. It is of course also filled with a potent blend of all-new Pokémon, including the Legendary Vast White Pokémon Reshiram and the Deep Black Pokémon Zekrom. Stepping into the role of either a male or female Trainer, players further have their choice of their first Pokémon, who will serve as the first of many Pokémon companions in their travels through Unova, as they attempt to capture every wild Pokémon variety available and test their skills against other Trainers in turn-based battles.

Experience Legendary Pokémon

Both of the Legendary Pokémon Reshiram and Zekrom appear in Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version, but each can only be caught in their respective versions. The Legendary Pokémon Reshiram appears on the cover of Pokémon Black Version and the Legendary Pokémon Zekrom is seen on the cover of Pokémon White Version. See their types, abilities and profiles below.

Stay tuned for more information on these two new game modes as more information is released on Pokémon Black Version.

Your Choice of Starter Pokémon

Pokémon Black Version starts you off on your new Pokémon adventure with a trusty Pokémon companion. Choose the Pokémon you like the most - it will be with you through thick and thin as you explore the Unova region. The three starter Pokémon all have different types. Your knowledge of the strengths and weaknesses of these types will be put to the test early and often.

Quick Personal Statement

I was in elementary school when the "pokemon craze" hit the US and everyone brought games and cards to school. I still have funny memories of getting my cards or gameboy confiscated because I was battling friends or trading during school. (It was much harder to be sneaky when you had to use a cable to connect your systems.) That being said, I only have fond and happy memories of Pokemon. However, as I started getting older, my interest in the series kept declining, but I still bought each new game. Honestly, I was a bit disappointed with Heart Gold / Soul Silver and still have not beaten it yet. I didn't have very high hopes for this game, however, I can tell you this game surpassed anything that I could have hoped for and is by far one of the best Pokemon games that I have ever played. My interest in the series has been reinvigorated. The core battle mechanics remain the same tested and true old formula, but the presentation has improved leaps and bounds! The graphics and environments are some of the best that I have seen on the DS. There are full 3D environments that look astonishingly good. Furthermore, Black and White will have seasonal cycles, as well as night/day cycles. Another added feature is triple battles where each trainer sends out 3 pokemon. I have only had a few hours to play the game, so I cannot speak for the plot as a whole or the post-story activities, but my brief experience with the game has been nothing but pure nostalgic fun.

Anyways, I'll leave the detailed reviewing of the game itself to someone else. I'll move on to what I really want to talk about: the differences between Black version and White version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revamped and Amazing March 6, 2011
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
What can I say about the newest pokemon games? It is absolutely amazing. The graphics are by far the best in the series there are now over 640 different pokemon. Also it is placed in more of a big city environment instead of forest. The pokemon are not as memorable but the new changes with the C-gear (which allows for easy access to online play) as well as no evolutions of older pokemon makes everything seem new and different. All I can say is well done gamefreak and Nintendo for making such a great game!

5.0 out of 5 stars Everything old is new again March 9, 2011
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is a worthy successor to the original blue/red games. It has re-inspired my love of the series. Gamefreak and Nintendo in general has a fantastic way of knowing how to follow the same, popular, reliable formula with its games but innovate so that everything old seems new again.

Let me get down to the bare bones. This installment is far superior to both diamond/pearl and the remakes of gold/silver. There are a couple of things they did wrong, but mostly they did everything right. A veteran can pick this game up and enjoy the subtleties of the franchise (tournament battling, IVs, EVs.) while new players to the genre can pick it up and dive right in.

The good:

-Huge graphical upgrades. The backgrounds and colors are so crisp and everything flows really well. There are some parts of the game where you can stop your character and just enjoy the scenery. We've come a loooong way from Kanto's pixely environments.
-Pokemon battle sprites are FINALLY animated. Probably not as well as they could be, but finally you can see your pokemon moving around on the field.
-Musical upgrades. This comes with the territory, but the music is great. Some of the dungeons have really eerie music that takes me back to my original days playing Zelda. I like it. It feels like the music is less of an afterthought in this game.
-You can use TMs repeatedly now. So you don't have to worry about buying earthquake 6 different times.
-HUGE story upgrades. Seriously. Your character is actually a part of the story now instead of that kid challenging all the gyms who accidentally gets involved with legendary pokemon.
-Increased wifi functionality.
-Seasons!
