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.

New Shades of Pokémon, in 2011

I’m just catching up with Nintendo’s buzz about confirmation that Pokémon Black Version & Pokémon White Version are heading to North American DS owners, along with a bit of art for new legendary Pokémon Reshiram and Zekrom.

When the games were originally announced for Japan there were plenty of people expressing surprise that the new titles would be hitting the DS rather than the platform we’re only a little over two weeks away from seeing – though that probably had more to do with disappointment rather than surprise.

Based on the title of this post you can probably conclude that I’m more surprised that the date for their arrival is a year from now, in Spring 2011, but I suppose we don’t have to worry about overdosing that way. All I know is that this is still a far cry from the Pokémon MMO I want.

While I ponder that, you can catch Reshiram and Zekrom after the break, along with a trailer for PokéPark Wii: Pikachu‘s Adventure – the minigame filled Wii title recieved a European release date of July 9, 2010 yesterday.
