Pokemon Black & White - initial thoughts?

i like the concept of an alternate reality (Dream World) that doesnt go by the rules of the normal world (different pokemon abilities, etc). and the way seasons determine what pokemon are available in certain areas.

but im still undecided on the new pokemon. they drawing style seems to be less pokemon-ish and more mainstream cartoony. take these guys for example:

Serebii.net PokÚdex - #504 Minezumi


Serebii.net PokÚdex - #529 Mogurew


then you have re-makes of the originals:

a pidgeon type
Serebii.net PokÚdex - #519 Mamepato


a rock type that evolves by trading
Serebii.net PokÚdex - #524 Dangoro


a tadpole type
Serebii.net PokÚdex - #535 Otamaro


and then you have your 2 non-evolving fighting types, among others.


will i play this one? of course.

will i expect it to be as epic as the first two series? no.

Initial impressions were "Is anyone still playing these games?".

Hell yes.

The day my copy of Crystal stops working will be a very sad day indeed.

Still trying to find some time so i can beat red in Soul Silver.

I don't really like the drawing style for black & white, i think my favorite is yellow.

I own Blue and Gold. Never finished Gold. They got too repetitive.

you get to choose between playing as a scenester or a whore



but i like the pokemon design. much closer to gen 1, more like animals, as opposed to random shapes and overly flamboyant designs.

so, been playing a partially translated version for 15 minutes: you have 2 friends, a boy and a girl. the girl is your "rival" and picks whatever your weakness is. your hometown is set on a peninsula, just like Pallet Town was.
