Fun little game...9/29/2012
Bought this to be able to play against my son that and his Black version. I still am not sure I get the whole Pokemon craze but having it allows me to spend more time doing something fun that he likes... I would prefer to do more non video game type stuff, but as they say, if you can't beat 'em... join them.
This new Black & White pair of Pokemon<.i> games take the necessary and welcome step further in evolving the series. The gameplay's more dynamic thanks to the combat in threes, 3D integration is perfect, new animations for the little animals are welcomed. Communications and trading are easier than ever thanks to new online features. And since the dialogs are better written, and often funny... No doubt remains, Black & White are able to paint new, revived colors on the famous licence!
its pokemon, same old same old. But pokemon is awosome. The best selling rpg series of all time. This game is great for all ages, kids to adults, get this for your kids or for your parents. You gota cautch them all. This game will make you have hours of fun. Try it now, buy it now
Best pokemon game ever5/10/2012
I would recommend the wight version. The difference between white version and the black version is they have different legendary pokemon. Zekrom is stronger than Reshiram. The guide helps a lot don't get the hard cover it cost 10 more $ than the soft cover. For the starter pokemon Snivy is the best The moves he can use are Tackle and Leer.
New Pokemon Game, Same as the Rest4/19/2012
If you liked the previous Pokemon games, then guess what? You will like this one. There are no older Pokemon in this game, which I kinda like. It really gives it a new feel to not have to see the same old Pokemon running around that have been here for 10 years.
One of the best newer pokemon games!10/18/2011
Like I said in the title, this generation's Pokemon games, black and white, is probably the best one compared to the most recent ones. Although, as expected, Pokemon holds it's same game formula: catch pokemon, battle gym leaders, elite four, and miscellaneous quests. However this one has some twists to it and of course new features and pokemon! Great game.
Pokemon White DS6/12/2011
This is a great game. Although it is similar in format to previous games, it has some changes that make the game run smoother. For example, the Pokemon Center is combined with the Poke Mart and battles run a little faster each turn. The game has two new fighting styles, Triple Battles and Rotation Battles. I would recommend this game to Pokemon fans.
A Refreshing Change6/8/2011
I absolutely love this game. It has all the loved basics of the Pokemon series and so much more. I have to say after Platinum, Heart Gold, and Soul Silver the games were getting a little stale. Sure, they were excellent remakes, but that's the key word, "Remakes". Pokemon White and Black were a sight for sore eyes. A completely new game with all new Pokemon. Very, VERY refreshing! It feels like I'm taking my first steps in Red and Blue all over again! It's nice to start fresh with a new team, not going into every cave and seeing the repetitive Geodude and Zubat. I actually feel excited every time I enter a new area, not knowing what new Pokemon might pop out at me. These games are also a lot more serious. The Pokemon are sharper and look tougher, and the bad guys aren't just evil for the sake of being evil. They have motives and are actually trying to do good. They have also greatly improved the online capabilities of the games also. Video chat included! I recommend this to any longtime Pokemon fans, or people who are new to the series. It is a wonderful change in pace and a great addition to a DS collection!
Perfect addition to the Series5/25/2011
Pokemon White is a fantastic game! its not too hard that its impossible but its challenging enough that if you are not prepared for certain parts of the game, you could be in for a challenge. The graphics and new pokemon definitely add a new excitement to the series and make it a great buy.
