    a neat mini-interview with one of the DP localizers that handled the Pokemon names

    not quite "news" per say but stuff like this isn't exactly common.

    Well, that's pretty interesting. I'm surprised to see him admit that they sort of half-assed names.

    On the subject of the boxes, I'm REALLY hoping we'll get some sort of 5th gen storage system. They could do one pretty easily through a 3DS eshop app that would allow you to send things to it from your game in the game slot I would imagine. All my boxes are filled up from Pokemon I've sent to White, DW Pokemon, Events, etc. I had to start releasing things I caught in the main game because I was running out of space. In the least, having a box system that would sync your two games together would be extremely useful, especially with the prizes they're giving for actually completing your Dex in BW2.

    Anyways, I was reading that interview earlier. Pretty funny, and the other article on silicona is also interesting. It seems like they're trying to make things more accessible to people who probably wouldn't invest a lot of time into the games (like the EV/IV things, shinies, etc) Maybe Gen 6 will have areas exclusively with Pokemon that have Pokerus? hah.

    EDIT: Oh..i'm uh..not really sure what the stance here is on linking to Reddit, so I apologize if this isn't ok. Jamie McGonnigal (the guy who voices Barry and Trip in the English Dub) did an IAmA on reddit a few hours ago. He talks mostly about recording and stuff. Its an interesting read. He also claims his favorite Pokemon is Chimchar so that's cool as well. (Only Pokemon he voices is Grumpig)

    I dunno, spending months grinding against thesauruses and Nintendo representatives doesn't sound very half-assed. Though the lickilicky story was funny "IT'S GOT A HUGE TONGUE & LICKS THINGS WHAT DO WE WORK WITH OH GOD"

    I kind of feel sorry for the dude(s)....localization doesn't sound fun

    The Lickilicky is what I was referring to when I said half-assed. I'm sure it probably went down differently than what he described, but oh well.

    I wonder how the people naming the Gym Leaders felt
    At least the pokemon have a variety of things to base a name off of

    the gym leaders have a gender and type specialty

    I guess you could also sort of go with what they're wearing, but usually they're wearing things based on their type... I feel like that would be definitely be a huge hassle.

    So next week's episode of the anime dub has Meloetta making an appearance, right?

    I'd expect them to "officially" reveal her sometime this week, else it'd be kind of weird if they have this Pokemon show up that they've never mentioned before.

    No, next week is "Crisis at Ferroseed Research." The week after will be Meloetta's first appearance.

    But....yeah, they kind of have to acknowledge the thing soon or it will just be weird. Maybe it will be used to hype up the episode "blahblahblahpreviewsblahblah AND ALSO DON'T MISS OUT ON SEEING A NEVER-BEFORE-SEEN POKEMON!"

    Although I am sure its difficult, localization would be the perfect job for me in all honesty. It would be something I really enjoy. I like to throw hidden meanings into names and such, so I would love that job xD But I am sure it is very difficult, especially after localizing name after name/pokemon after pokemon/place after place.

    Pokemon Black 2 and White 2 pre-launch event:

    http://www.pocketmonsters.net/articles/1425/

    Once again, I'll have to pass because I pre-ordered Pokemon Black 2 and it's too far away for me.

    Just so everyone knows, Masuda is on Smash next week (with the renewal). He'll be doing a "Battle Lecture", I guess teaching kids the finer points of battling.

    the first thing I imagine is him for the first time ever directly mentioning about EVs, natures, STAB and move coverages, and possibly IVs as well

    My shinies. Just click the links~

    ~Shiny Banner 1~
    ~Shiny Banner 2~
    ~Shiny Banner 3~

    My shinies are not for trade or cloning.
    Shinies are not listed in order, for example the last shiny on the banner is not always the latest shiny I've obtained.
    Banner 1 made by Light Venusaur, thanks ^_^

    Gametrailers "review" Pokémon Black and White 2 and gives it a 7.1, not a bad score, but it was so obvious that the guy just doesn't want to play the Pokémon games and doesn't get the games appeal.

    Warning the review spoils the plot of the game and who's the champion.

    Now that people are actually getting the games and more information is seeping through, do we know if there's still a limit on the amount of numbers you can include in a Box name? That was something that really annoyed me in B/W as I sort my Pokemon by National Dex order, leaving spaces for the ones (not many) I don't have. I'd gladly accept longer save times for that, lol!

    ONM's review of B2/W2 is here, by the way:
    http://www.officialnintendomagazine....hite-2-review/

    There's some good stuff mentioned, but I don't know why they're describing it as a "sendoff" of classic games... Sure it was made for the fans, but I doubt Gen VI will be a complete re-imagining besides more polygons!
    I play games but mainly Sonic, Zelda or Pokémon...

    I have successfully captured 491 legal Pokémon in Diamond and am working on Gen V

    I like how he says there's barely any new music when there's enough original content to fill a 3 disc soundtrack.

    Because it will be the last Pokémon and Nintendo game released for the DS.

    Yeah it's clear that the guy either didn't play the game properly or just speed run the game, since there was no mention of any of the new features added in the game.

    Then again this is GameTrailers, the same people who complained about Sonic Colours controls being broken.

    So Emerald was the last classic game because it was the last to be released on the GBA? And The last games to be released on the 3DS will also be the last classic games? Why does B2/W2 being the last games on the DS change anything?

    Maybe there's just a general consensus that the 3DS games will be some kind of third-person super detailed adventure and completely revolutionize the formula... they probably won't be- they'll more than likely be the same formula, but just more shinier with less sprites and more polys.

    All Pokemon games will be classics.

    Generally, the negative reviews keep mistaking it for the start of a new generation, and so are complaining about things which cannot change mid-gen

    Agreed. The reviews, while not bad, kind of upset me a little. I don't think they really understood where it was directed; BW2 seem to be directed at hardcore pokemon fans & fine-tuning Gen V. However, this makes me nervous about the future. What is to come? BW2 were a complete surprise (ahem, no Pokemon Gray). I just wish I knew where the franchise is headed, and I hope that its in the right direction Either way, Game Freak seems to have something up their sleeve they aren't telling us- I just hope we get a Gen VI that is a could kickoff to the next century of pokemon.
