    I just got Pokemon Black, and now all I have to decide is which starter to get.

    I'm sure I'm not the only one on here who hasn't yet outgrown 'em. Who else got it?

    LOL what a nerd you are!

    ...

    I totally have it 8D I just beat the 5:th Gym.

    I haven't made up my mind what I think about it yet. First of all it doesn't have any connections to the previous generations, so it reeks a bit 3:rd Gen which imo was the worst Gen so far.

    When Team Plasma first popped up I liked them. They asked the questions many already probably have been asking "If Pokémon are our friends, why do we lock them inside Pokéballs and make them fight each other 'til they 'faint'?". And I thought "Shit, Pokémon just got deep". Of course I got majorily disappointed when only a few seconds later you see this scenario with a little girl crying 'cos they stole her Pokémon and Team Plasma kicking the shit out of a small defenseless Pokémon. So in the end Team X just turned out to be a flat evil villain as usual. Major disappointment. It was also kinda annoying that the game developers made the association between "wanting to free Pokemon from trainers" with "Pokémon-beaters". It reminded me of all the debates that ended with someone associating someone's idea with "JUST LIKE HITLER DID!!" and everyone's like "*GASP* Hitler was VEGETARIAN?? Vegetarians are EVIL!".

    I mainly play Pokémon for the competitve battling though and I'm thrilled to see what they've done with that. Not too interested in the 3v3 though, but the 3-wheel-battles seems like a cool idea.

    I agree; so far I haven't decided how I feel about it, but I do like that this is more or less a reboot. And I'm also drawing parallels between Gen. V and Gen. III. I remember when Gen. III first came out, people were criticizing it for the Pokemon styles: They went from being cartoonish to more realistic (the classic example they gave was Butterfree vs. Beautifly). Meanwhile there's an ice-cream-cone-based Pokemon in Gen. V, which is all kinds of wtf.

    I have to say I'm disappointed with the starters. I remember there were rumors that they were going to try doing away with the grass/water/fire starters and do psychich/dark/ghost. Personally, I think they should go for it.

    Eh. I'm still using my gameshark to cheat with Emerald and Fire Red and Leaf Green. Yeah I've beat them a gazillion times but it's fun with gameshark. Oh yeah and Sapphire.
    I'd upgrade sooner but I dont' like the way all these new ones look.

    I.. I've been waiting impatiently for a while :-. Those games just send me flying back through time and are so addicting. I remember watching the first full feature in the theater and I literally cried when Ash was turned to stone lol. Maybe I'm biased, but I feel like Pokemon had more magic back in the day. I've played the games over now that I'm older and..yeah..the more recent installments have caused the game to lose some of it's muchness. I'll be buying one of the two new ones asap though, who could resist?

    Yup sure do icon_biggrin.gif competitive battling is the best, if that's what you're talking about. I'm still playing story mode of Pokémon BW but I can't wait to see what the competitive world has to offer in the new gen.

    Yes! I am not alone. I chose Tepig for my starter. I like that TMs can be used more than once now.

    I've got Black. Anyone want to swap friend codes?

    Same for HeartGold/SoulSilver. I play more competitively on those... at least until my current-gen team shapes up.
