imagePokémon Black & White is only three months away. Well, if you’re in Japan. Nintendo set September 18 as the game’s release date there. Pokemon trainers in North America have to wait until spring 2011 to catch Zekrom.


In addition to new starters and legendaries, Pokémon Black & White has new Pokémon from the Isshu region to collect. You can see some the new Generation 5 Pokémon below.



Their Japanese names are: (from left to right)  Meguroku, Hihidaruma, Munna, Giaru (the floating gears), Shimama, Chiramii, and Mamebato.

  • Some of them designs looks good, some are not. so how many new pokemons are there? I stopped counting at 380s or something.

    • arceus (the final pokemon on the D/P/Pt/HG/SS generation) was 493rd

      personally I’m at the point where it’s just easier for me to keep track of final evolutions only

    They all look good except for M<egurko and the girafarig looking one. It's eyes scare me.

      lol. Reminds me of the whole Laputa thing with Ghibi’s movie when it was coming out in North America. Disney dropped Laputa from the title, but the funny thing is, the Castle/floating island was still called Laputa in the movie. xD

      Makes you wonder how many other made-up Japanese worlds have naughty Spanish meanings. xD

    it’s actually Chiraamii (long ah sound)
