Review Pokemon Black Version 2
For all the charms that have helped Pokémon endure consistent gamer love for so many years now, the visual seems to take priority. Starting a new adventure in the Unova region finds me without strategy or purpose, and once again choosing which of three Pokémon to start my roadtrip with based on visual affection – there was no contest by the way, Tepig or bust.

The formula is familiar and worn enough that I always feel a bit silly writing about a new entry, and yet each one is never long for stealing attention away from other releases. The first few hours proved unpredictable, insofar as I couldn’t have guessed which Pokémon might join my party along the way.

Certainly there are only a few waiting to be discovered in the first few steps between cities and earning gym badges, but which ones were claimed in the wild, and which of those would survive battles to evolve and stick around seemed delightfully random once again.

Pokemon Black and White Versions
Nintendo’s combating your post-turkey coma with yet another release date, letting us know that the next installment of the Pokémon franchise will be hitting North American DS’ on March 6, 2011.

Pokémon Black Version and White Version offer two shades to choose from, and introduce a new region along with 150 new Pokémon – possibly bringing the overall number of Pokémon to something nearing incalculable.

If you’re wondering which version is right for you Nintendo offers the following – Legendary Pokémon Reshiram can only be caught in Black Version while White Version offers Legendary Pokémon Zekrom along with other Pokémon unique to each title. Black Version also features an urban area known as Black City, while White Version features greener pastures known as White Forest.

But wait, there’s more!

Both versions of the game feature changing seasons, with certain Pokémon appearing more often at different times. Players will also begin this adventure with one of three new starter Pokémon – the Grass-type Snivy, the Fire-type Tepig and the Water-type Oshawott.
