So to take advantage of the new board...

Which version will you buy first? Black? White? Both?

Black.
The legendary is just more badass imo.

TRUE.

White for obvious reasons. Awesome black legendary, White exclusive(the cotton bud Pokemon WAY BETTER THAN THE GOTHIC CHICK POKEMON)

Reshiram and Zekrom don't seem too appealing in themselves but the area changes (City vs. Forest) are the hard decision.

Maybe White...

White will be my main game! I like Zekrom better than Reshiram and White Forest sounds nicer than Black City. haven't really looked at the version exclusives yet though.

I'm getting White so I can get Mr.Huggles, better than the Gothic Chick.

Pokemon White for sure, though I'll probably have both since my brother will probably get Black.

I'll be getting both version anyway if ihave to choose one if i'm not allowed to get both i'll get pokemon black because i would love a Dragon/Fire but the other legendary black pokemon is okey too.

I'm probably choosing Black.
Only because of the whole city thing. I'm wondering how they're going to take this whole urban thing.
Also, since I live in a suburb, I tend to feel very jealous when seeing pkmn's constant foresty areas. This might make me feel less lame.

Also, yay for its own forum!

I'm getting White Version because of Zekrom. I don't really care about the Black City and White Forest difference.
Since I have a brother he'll be getting Black Version anyways so if I really wanted too he'd let me play through it and I can get all version exclusive pokemon whenever need be. :P

Both. But if I don't have enough to buy both at the same time, I'll just purchase Black and save up later to get White.

I'm getting in White in Japanese and then Black in English. :o

Don't think I'll be getting both versions this time. I'll be going for White, not because of the legends looks, but cause I generally prefer electric over fire. :silly: My sister will probably get Black, so I won't have to worry about exclusives. ^^'

Black because Fire is the coolest.

Ridley

I'm getting Black because most of my friends are getting White.

By now, though, I honestly could care less about version differences. It's gotten too old.

Disco
09-09-2010, 04:08 PM
The part I don't get is, what makes one so sure that /both/ Reshiram and Zekrom aren't in the game?
Didn't Platinum have both Dialga and Palkia?

Just like Emerald had both Groudon and Kyogre.

I'm thinking the third game will have both to follow the pattern, just not the first pair.

Teeeechnically both 'cause I'm getting Black for myself and White for Steakums. xD

Judgmental Arceus
09-10-2010, 04:16 AM
Neither to be honest. I'll just wait for the third game in the series.

Charizard Michelle
09-10-2010, 05:38 AM
I am going for Black. Having a Fire Legendary is rare and I like the idea. So I got really lucky that the Fire Legendary was going to be the cover pokemon for Black. Also Black City sounds cool to explore.

Professor Geoffrey
09-10-2010, 06:15 AM
Most likely both. I always buy both rival games nowadays, ever since Diamond and Pearl. I did it with HeartGold and SoulSilver, too. Oh, and Explorers of Time and Darkness/

NTT

I'm waiting to see how distinct the differences between versions are. However if they're not too different, I'll probably pick depending on which dragon is better from a competitive standpoint. At the moment black is the obvious choice since all we know about them so far is typing, and Reshiram has an unresisted STAB combination (Outside of Heatran).

Some people are gonna make me take out the nerd spray, new games are comming out and all you can think of is Competative battling... get a better hobby...
Neither, Ima wait till Gray is out so I can watch the progress of Smogon acting like noobs and marking 91 of the pokemon as ubers.

Did you ignore the bit where I said I'm gonna pick based on which of the version-exclusive elements of the games is better? Did you not gather from that that the game itself is my top priority? If you're going to go out of your way to insult somebody's reasoning, at least make sure you're point makes sense in the first place. If you don't like competitive battling, fine. But in a thread where people are asked to voice their opinion, don't whine like a baby and start spewing insults when they voice an opinion that is in opposition to your own.

I thought about getting white today.
Then I decided I should probably stick with black.

The thing I'm suffering with is, however,
What gender should I be this time around? o_______o

Eternal Moonlight
09-12-2010, 08:03 AM
I'm getting Black, because my brother wants White!

Plus, dark urban core... haven't seen much of that in Pokémon games (refering to the version exclusive areas)

I will get both at the same time on my birthday, since they will come out before it.

Both. But if I don't have enough to buy both at the same time, I'll just purchase Black and save up later to get White.

Sorta sounds like me. I plan on getting both, but I'm gonna pre-order White first, and then Black later on. I've got PLENTY of time to save up the 70 or so bucks it'll cost for both of them, so I'm not worried.

Though if something happens and I can only get one I'm getting White. Zekrom ftw! Though I'll be jealous of Black owners who get Monom over the bud Mon (can't remember it's name).

The thing I'm suffering with is, however,
What gender should I be this time around? o_______o

I lol'ed.

He's so dark you can barely see him on black cover so he's on white.the same goes for reshiram when you put him on the cover of white.

I change my vote to whichever version has Wargle, because I get the feeling he's gonna be a version-specific.

Wargle's in White.

I chose both. One for competitive training and one for Nuzlocking.

Aaaactually, I heard that Wargle is in Black, & White has some weird Vulture thingy with spikes, but White has a forest which most likely means it'll have a LOT more grass-types. Oi, I just hope that Shikijika isn't a version exclusive.... same with the cute little candle Mon. But I wouldn't mind if Shinpora (the evil creepy Xatu-like Pokemon) wasn't in Black... but with my luck it will be in both... D:

Disco
09-20-2010, 11:22 AM
I.. I-I... Idc I want Black. ; A ;
Even if I'm a bit disappointed with some of their exclusives,
It's what I chose first... so I will stick with my decision.

(Plus a shiny Reshiram would be totally b-a.)

Rampardos_Fan
09-20-2010, 01:24 PM
Either both or neither xD . Whenever new Pokémon games come out I get both versions, though I'm not entirely sold on these yet.

Ayotui
09-20-2010, 01:55 PM
im not really sure, i like reshiram more than zekrom. but i want the forest more than the city.

ill probably get both anyways but im not sure what my main game will be.

Wargle is in White whereas the vulture is in Black, according to Serebii.

I'm going with White meself. Hooray for Wargle, Rankurusu and Zekrom!

White!

as I didn't saw the differences between each other yet, my choice is based in the fact I prefer the new major white-colored legendarie than the black one

The 'white legendary', also known as Reshiram, will be featured in Pokemon Black.

09-30-2010, 11:47 PM
really?

I thought the white legendary would be featured in version with his color and the black one would be featured in the black one, like it happened with the previous versions (Charizard in the cap of Red Version, Lugia in the Silver Version, Rayquaza in the Emerald Version...)

Yup. The problem was that if you put Zekrom's image on a black case, it wouldn't show very well. Vice versa for Reshiram.

I'm getting white. I like Zekrom over the other dragon that's probably why

Mudkippy
10-01-2010, 04:39 PM
Oh it's very logical this, if the white one were in the white version, the cap was going to be all white as long as the other was going to be all black

So, as I prefer Reshiram, the white one, I have to pick black version
