Not sure if many of you heard, but there will be Generation 5 Pokemon games out titled: Pokemon Black and Pokemon White. (See Monsters Below). One of the biggest concerns I had about this game was, the lack of carefully thought out pokemon concepts. Despite my suspicions being dead on (Come on now their is a pokemon based off a trash bag!), Gamefreak and Nintendo deliver a gameplay system that a Pokemon game has never seen! First and foremost the detail of the game is absolutely right on, I'm talking about cities that look like cities, Forest that look like forest and Deserts that look like deserts. Then there is the storyline, Typical thing that you would expect from pokemon (Can't really back that up as I am playing the game in Japanese). You get two rivals, I'm not talking about a Rival that's a pain and a rival that is nonexistent. No, you and your rivals start off at the same time, and they will battle you throughout the course of your journey. Pokemarts and Pokemoncenters are combined; which i feel is SO convientant. The game offers a bunch of Fun Stuff to do, to make up for it's lack of quality pokemon; I myself just lost to the 4th gym leader as I kept doing the wrong attacks (Tends to be a prevalent problem when you don't understand Japanese)
What do ya think? Games set for release in the U.S in the spring.
