Tickets to Unova arrive on March 6, the day when Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version are released in North America.


During the main story you’ll only run into new Pokémon. Pokémon Black and White have 150 new Pokémon to catch starting with these three. Snivy (grass type), Tepig (fire type), and Oshawott (water type) are the three starter Pokémon in this Nintendo DS game.




Pick up Pokémon Black Version and you can catch the Legendary Pokémon Reshiram. Pokémon White Version has the Legendary Zekrom. Each game also has a unique city to explore. You’ll visit Black City, a bustling metropolis, in Pokémon Black Version or explore White Forest, a lush green forest in Pokémon White Version.

  • Kevin Ricard

    May get it along the 3DS

  • Tsunayoshi Sawada

    Day 1 Baby. Imma get White because the Black legendary (Zekrom) looks so cool.

    I guess both the 3DS and Pokemon will be released same month.

    The site has more English names too…Minccino is my favorite one, so cool, as cool as Teddiursa!

    • Tommy Lee

      You mean White’s black legendary/mascot.

      • Tsunayoshi Sawada

        Yeah, thats what I meant.

        …thats what happens when Im typing while trying to make a Warrior type deck for Yu-Gi-Oh…

        • Exkaiser

          Huh, I’m running a warrior deck in Tag Force right now. Coincidences.

  • Justin Ampadu-Kwakye

    Cannot wait for a Pokemon 3DS =)

  • sdragon21

    Really digging the US boxart. Will be getting white over black because of the legendary.
    Can’t Wait!!

  • ThunderGod_Cid

    This will be the first Pokemon game I’ll buy in a while.
    The last game I played in the series was Yellow…..that was a long time ago.

    • WildArms

      Expect the same but with nice graphics! And a better way to comunicate with other people -.-.

      The dreamworld would be the main reason why i would like to buy it, and the new pokemons, but by soul, is still the saame formula :)

  • Heehee

    Time to rename Snivy to Smugleaf.

  • Tommy Lee

    I will pick the Samurai Otter.

  • Guest

    I really wish Pokemon didn’t have that standard logo in NA so we could get the new logos for each games like in Japan.

    • thebanditking

      yeah but doing so could create brand confusion for the average consumer. I know it sounds silly but its likely what has kept that logo there all these years.

  • Gabriel May

    The only reason I’m getting this game is because of Smugleaf. My mission will to find Pokemon with the cocky grins and look and thus create my team – Team Smugglers.

    •!/SplashdownTiger STiger

      Put Pants Lizard on your team, aka “Zuruzukin”.

  • PersonaBull

    This game is going to be the first Pokemon game I ever started with something other than the fire starter (the first time around, at least).
    It’s mostly due to this:

    I’m glad there’s finally a set date. I’ll probably get this day 1, since there wont be much reason to wait for a price drop (pokemon HG/SS are still full price in some places). I’m excited for the new online features they’re throwing in. I’ve tried the main game out and it’s definitely a lot more of a jump from older titles, while keeping the important essence of the Pokemon title intact.

    • Joanna

      Oshawott actually really grew on me. I’m also going to go with him. :3

      I’ve usually went with fire starters too with Bulbasaur and Totodile being the only exceptions.

  • Karl Marshall-Brown

    This would be the only game I camp in front of a GameStop for. Pokemon (among many other RPGs) is my life!
