    So, does this mean we'll have even MORE light type debates? Augh. =/ That's getting old. But I do look forward to more info from CoroCoro and Pokemon Sunday.

    I think it's you guys who are making such a big deal about it. They're colors. We use them in day-to-day life. It's okay, really.

    I doubt Nintendo wants to risk racial issues though. :/

    ^ Technically, they're not colors. They're the absence or presence of light. =P

    So jagged and cool-looking... @__@

    I think Black and White is a HUGE step back from the titles of the 3rd and 4th generations, but whatever suits Gamefreak.

    I'm just curious as to what they're going to call the Third Game. Pokemon Gray or Pokemon Brown? Pfft.

    Nope because those sort of posts will just get deleted. =D But don't expect an absense of them appearing. -_-


    Personally - they're fine names. Pokemon game names are never special (Red and Blue, random metal/gem names...FireRed LeafGreen...yeah). I wonder if they will change for the english versions, but I do doubt it. We shall see I suppose!

    Okay, really guys. Not everyone immediately jumps and calls racism when you see the words black and white. And imagine the backlash if they changed the names to something else for America? That'd make it seem even more racist than intended, which is to say none at all!

    The colour black has been around a lot longer than the racial connotations.

    If someone is going to get all upitty over the use of the word black reffereing to a colour in paradigm to white (but not the use of white, for whatever reason) then that person has a very skewered priority set.

    Plus, it's at least considerable that NoA were already told about the titles' colours and considered that they weren't an issue.

    Because to any rational person, they're not.

    you expect wrong. heartgold, soulsilver, platinum, diamond, pearl, firered, leafgreen, ruby, sapphire, emerald, crystal, gold, and silver have the same names as their japanese counterparts, the only difference is the language they're spoken in.

    I think this is very uncreative of Gamefreak to use such names.

    At long last, I am returning with my Fan-Fic. Just need to find a better host. Blogger has done its course but I need just a little more recognition.

    I freaking HATE "Mega" Evolution.

    Talk about the names only? What the hell else is there to say? Lolracism? Because that's ridiculous.

    You might as well lock the thread if the topic is "Black. White. Black and white."

    Or they're just turning back to simpler roots. Like Red and Blue are oh so creative?

    Actually, it's a shade.
    "Open your mouth too wide, and your ears close."

    Do you wish you could do things like in the anime?
    Do you wish you could dodge behind a rock to avoid an attack?
    Do you wish that you could use the arena to stop your opponents cold?
    If you answered yes to any of those questions, the Pokemon Anime Style Battling League could be for you!

    Oh em ge. Interesting to get the names of the games and the logos look pretty darn snazy if I may say. Kind of uncreative and odd for them to use black and white as a basis for the game's names since I thought they'd stick with gems and not go back to colors.

    It'll be awesome to see the Black and White Box Legends though. The Box Legend for Pokemon Brown will be a giant pile of crap.

    But no, actually, once we see the third Legend in BW we'll MOST LIKELY be able to instantly guess the title of the third game. Yay for using simplistic one-dimensional colors...

    they were the first games in the series, nothing wrong with no creativity over a decade ago...

    There's a reason for this. It's because if we allowed speculation, most of it stupid and repetitive and spammy, there will be so much spam it wouldn't be funny. If people were around the pre-D/P/Pt days... yeah. We had people suggesting DOG TYPES. D=

    So until we have more info to discuss, it's just the game names only. Watch this thread get many pages just on that topic alone. =P
