I really don't know about Gigaiasu though; true, it may have the same colors, but the body shape is dramatically different. Maybe if someone hypothesized its creative basis, I.E. a quadrupedal statue with a big nose or something, it'd make more sense.

I myself? I buy both versions so that I get a chance to play through the storyline again without deleting my savefile on the other game. First, though, I'd probably play White because of Zekrom, and trade for Gothiselle (Gochizeru, yadaya. Whatever she'll be called, I <33333333333333333 her and her blasé expression!)

Now here is where I would like to express a bit of disappointment...

Clearly, Reshiram and Zekrom are based off of the concepts of Yin and Ying, being called the "Yang Dragon" and "Yin Dragon" Pokemon respectively. Those of you familiar with Yin and Yang will know that Yin represents "negative, dark, cool, passive, female" energy, whereas Yang represents "positive, light, warm, active, male" energy.

I would've though this would be awesome if Nintendo had paid careful attention to all of these virtues, but judging from Zekrom's broad chest and manly pectorals...*sigh*, I guess they won't.

Nintendo, when are you going to learn that it's not just Shounen, gender-role-hammered youths of Japan you're marketing for, but the entire WORLD? I mean, you make Pokemon like Gallade male-only, yet you leave Pokemon like Gardevoir to be, not only able to be male, but 50% chance of being male? The least you could do is FOLLOW your definition of gender-correctness. *sighs again as she climbs down from her soapbox* Sorry, being an advocate for more kickbutt female characters and a general exponent of Japanese anime, this topic is very sensitive to me. Especially in the realm of a series that I've followed closely for over 11 years of my life. ^^;;

Despite this, I'm very excited about the games coming out! I can't wait to see what Pokemon await us and be able to plan my roster!
Yeah. That'd be odd if it wasn't an evolution. And the other one might not be an evolution of Nosepass, but hey - it should get a pure Rock evolution.


And, uh...Well, Nintendo screwed up its definition of "genders" a long time ago.

R/B/Y/G/S/C/R/S/E Mr. Mime - Male only

D/P/Pl Mr. Mime - 50% chance of being female


See what I mean? Mr. Mime. Female. *Shudders* That poor, poor, gender confused kid that comes across this...



And I dunno. I can kinda see Zekrom being female >.>

We can only hope for a Mrs. Mime evo. Maybe it'll get some controversy like Jynx did, but that would be some long due controversy and Nintendo would be like "Well it wasn't a problem back then, why is it nao?!!" I think they shouldn't make too many evos of older Pokemon and make new, more original Pokemon.

BTW guys, expect a new legendary tonight.

Well, do you really want them to put a female chest onto a Pokemon, especially a legendary? That wouldn't end to well.

Also, I thought a Kirlia had to be female to evolve into Gardevoir (exc. R/S/E)

It's obviously based on...The sunfish, I think.


Gigaiasu, I still think it is a Nosepass evo. Seriously. Look at that thing. It's creepy and the colors are the same. 0o'
I think it'll be a split evolution for Nosepass too. It just gave that impression upon appearance.

Mamanbou better be a Luvdisc evo. If not, then Game Freak really are running out of ideas. Evolution via level up with a Heart Scale, maybe?

Hmm, good point. Though Mr. Mime was able to be female as soon as Gender was introduced in GSC; remember Sabrina's female Mr. Mime? I lol'd so hard at that. XDD

Nope, a male Gardy has been easily obtainable since Generation III when it was introduced. ^^; I'd know, because I became very...well, 'confused' by Wally's Gardevoir (the sick kid with the green hair that becomes your rival?)

Also, I see your point about boobs on a legend...though Jynx has kinda has those, but given it's a breastplate.

Also...for some reason I had the impression that Groudon was a female earth deity that created the earth both violently and with care. Kinda like Gaia. I dunno what gave me the female impression. Maybe...this?

That name hasn't been confirmed yet. It's Japanese name is Bikutini, and it is the Phantom Pokemon, I think.

It's probably a Normal type, but maybe it'll be a Normal/Ghost type? XD

Well, well, well, it seems like I'm right, which is some cool sh!t. I just don't understand why it's #000? Is it something that's not recorded or something or did the Pokedex just explode from a mass storage of around 600 different Pokemon? Overall I really like this legendary and is probably my favorite out of all the little fairy legendaries.

At first, I thought the new legend was dumb, butafter a while, he seemed to look ok. I think he'll be psychic and ghost. It's a hunch

Mr. Mime was the name given by Nintendo of America. Its Japanese name is gender neutral. So don't expect Game Freak, which has nothing to do with the English names, to put out a Mrs. Mime... Ever.

This is terribly off topic, but seeing this made me remember that the first time I ever heard the word boobs was in relation to Jynx. To be more specific, because my older cousin always used to yell "big boobs" instead of Jynx's name whenever she came up in the PokeRap.... Ah, memories.

Back on topic: I really don't get what the new legend is supposed to be. I mean, I like the design, but I'm not sure about the type. Because of the wings, I'm gonna guess Flying + something else.
