    Default Pokémon Black and White Versions


    Pokebeach,Serebii,Bulbapedia,Joystiq etc. have announced that the official Japanese Pokémon website have revealed the 5th Gen games as Black and White.

    Bit weird how they return to colours... From Red/Blue/Yellow but seems to be exiting. Maybe Pokémon Black will feature Zoroark

    Pokebeach states that more details will be revealed on the Website April 15th but Pokémon Sunday and CoroCoro will have information sooner around saturday evening/sunday.

    Can't wait for details!

    Pokebeach Story

    Official 5th Gen Japanese Website (Check back soon, Only showing and confirming logo so far)

    (Also seems a new logo, maybe in english too. Not just the yellow Pokémon no more. We have that Pokéball , Another thing it seems so far that it is on the DS range. Maybe it will get revealed for the 3DS Later or the 3rd version (Pokémon Grey :P) will be enhanced for the 3DS.

    Not entirely surprised to see these names picked; I expected these after Gold and Silver, but instead they kept it at rare materials (or stones, if you'd call it that). I'm very curious if the colours will have anything to do with the story this time around, because Black and White is something that can harbour a number of meanings.

    Ooh, Black and White sound quite good. I'm already excited.
    Hopefully no 3DS, my eyes were stinging off the normal DS never mind what they'll be like in 3D?
    I cant imagine Pokemon in 3D, it'll be like the N64/Wii games... which were tedious...

    Just told my mum the names and she commented on that they seem to be running out of names :P

    But I think there will be a secret in the names, Like as Pokebeach states: In the Past/Black for Zoroark and White for a light Zoroark or some sort

    haha. I told my sister the new names and she commented that it sounded racist.

    I think that assessment is kind of incorrect, but let's not get into that.

    I hope that the creature designers have recaptured a bit of the early Pokémon aesthetics. The Generation IV Pokémon were not the best batch if we're talking looks. And I didn't like the fact that everything had to have an evolution.

    But the evolutions are where most new ones come in. And I thought Gen IV looked cool. But juding from Zorua and Zoroark already Gen V should be good. And they may make way more evolutions.

    I'd say evolutions quite possibly for:
    Dunsparce
    Smergle or Ditto (Maybe)
    Kecleon
    etc

    I maybe hope they introduce a Stage 3. So you have 4 stages (3 Evolutions) instead of 3 (2 Evolutions) as max.

    And Nintendo laughed at me for the name suggestions of Solar and Lunar. Black and White, I guess the 3rd installment will be Gray and after that Fuschia and Puce.

    Kinda knew that they'd end up using these colours eventually, though to be fairly honest, for such a simple name, I'd have expected them sooner. But oh well. The problem with naming your games after colours and gems is you'll eventually start running out of them. It was kind of evident in their naming of the remakes to Gold and Silver... and that was only their second line of remakes. xD

    I'll keep my expectations on par with HG and SS until I start seeing more on them.

    @ Pokedude609: Though it would change the game up a bit, I personally think the evolution system as is, (e.g. a basic Pokemon and two evolutions as max) is fine. I think that if you start introducing a fourth stage of evolution into the Pokemon games, it'll start to really hamper with stat distribution. Sure, it'd be nice to see extra evolutions for Pokemon like Pidgeot and such, who have on average pretty low base stats, but looking at them, they actually look, to me, as that would be the logical place to end their evolution line. That holds true to pretty much all Pokemon that have used the maximum number of evolution slots as of Generation IV. (you can't go much better than making Pidgeot look like a freaking eagle, for example) I'd like something nice and different from the Pokemon games, but not as different as that.

    As for theory on different evolutions... I'll leave that for the "Will it finally happen?" thread. That seems to be PokeFarm's official Evolution Theory thread. xD
