Lanky Pokémon

Well, Pokémon Black and White--or Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version, if you go by Nintendo of America's official verbiage--will hit the streets in the US in just a few days. Will you be getting either of these games--or maybe both of them?

I caved and pre-ordered Pokémon Black--for no other reason than I like the looks of the Black City more than I like the looks of the White Forest--last week after I heard I could get a $5 promotional credit--which has since been bumped up to a $10 promotional credit--for doing so.

Anyway, enough about all of that. My main reasons for posting this were: 1) to see if any of you plan on getting either of these games and 2) to show you this interesting illustration, created by artist Reed Bond, of a rather lanky Pikachu, Charmander and Bulbasaur.

See more of Bond's work on his blog or on deviantart or Flickr.

I got a copy of Black the day it was out in Japan. Now that it's out in english I feel bad for having not touched it in a long time..

DId you like what you've played of it, Suika?

I would like to get it. It's the first Pokemon release since the first one that I've had any desire in getting. I'll wait till the special edition is announced for the 3DS. You know it's only a matter of time.

Oh, yeah, you know a third one will come out in a year or so. I'd wait, too, but I really want this one for some reason.

SUIKA said...

Yeah it was okayyy but like most Pokemon games, you're addicted to it for a good while, then realize that it's somewhat samey as all the others and so like yeah. Also I end up doing complicated things with my party and boxes so when I come back to play it after a while I have no idea how to reapproach it. Not that I wouldn't preorder the next one in a heartbeat, though.

Thanks for the info, Suika! It'll be interesting to see how I react to this one. The only Pokemon game I've ever really become addicted to was the first one. I bought Emerald for the GBA and Pearl (I think) for the DS, but barely played either of them. Like I said earlier, though, I really like how this one *looks*, so hopefully that will be enough to get me to play it for at least a while :)
