    Default White or Black? (and Why?)

    Alright, so I'm sure many of you have your minds set on one specific version of the new Pokemon games, Pokemon White and Pokemon Black. I'm also sure that many of you, like myself, are torn on which version to get, and are weighing the merits of either version.

    So, here's the thread to discuss it! Vote in the poll: Will you choose White? Will you choose Black? Are you going to skip the choosing process and just get both, or are you going to abstain from purchasing these games, instead opting for an anticipated 3rd installment?

    After voting, be sure to post saying what you chose! These posts must be more than a simple one-word response. Nobody wants to read that!

    Elaborate!! Say why you're picking Black, or why you like White more. There are plenty of reasons--exclusive Pokemon, cover legendary, battles, locations...


    To start off the thread, I'm undecided! I'm leaning more towards Black at the moment. Rotation Battles sound cooler to me than Triple Battles, and I like the high-tech locations more than the natural ones.



    EDIT: Since people seem to be confusing this rather regularly...

    5th Gen Pokemon exclusive to WHITE:
    Zekrom
    Rufflet, Braviary
    Solosis, Duosion, Reuniclus
    Petilil, Lilligant
    Thundurus
    (blue genie, Electric/Flying)


    5th Gen Pokemon exclusive to BLACK:
    Reshiram
    Vullaby, Mandibuzz
    Gothita, Gothorita, Gothitelle
    Cottonee, Whimsicott
    Tornadus
    (green genie, Pure Flying)



    Pokemon that are NOT version-exclusive:
    Tirtouga, Carracosta (the sea turtle)
    Archeos, Archetops (the fossil bird)
    Venipede, Whirlipede, Scolipede (the centipede line)
    Sewaddle, Swadloon, Leavanny (the silkworm)
    Golett, Golurk (the clay doll-robot things)
    Pawniard, Bisharp (the Power Rangers)

    None of those last six Pokemon are version-exclusive, contrary to popular belief. Only three lines are version-exclusive per game, with two version-exclusive Legendaries as well.

    Not that anyone reads the first post anymore, but I figured this should be here.

    I can't decide. I'm leaning towards Black atm, just b/c it has Rotation Battles, Black City and (my favorite) Reshiram. ^^ I love that new Pokemon.

    However, if I get White Version, I get access to White Forest, and some really nice version exclusives. But, I figure I can always trade with someone if I want a Pokemon that isn't in my version.

    I've still got time to decide, but like I said, leaning towards Black. :]

    White, because I got Black back in September and most of my planned team is only on White. I will be buying my fixing to be 7 year old Nephew Black for his birthday though. I am also choosing white so I can finally complete me Unova dex without trading over Wi-Fi and GTS.

    White, because of Zekrom. Initially, I had thought Black had Zekrom, but seeing as it's the opposite, I voted for it. And, well, White has Iris as the gym leader in Soryuu city (sorry, I don't remember the English name at this time). And White Forest sounds like it has a lot of Pokemon to choose from.

    Normally, I'd be concerned with version exclusives, but seeing as that in itself is mildly rectified with the GTS anyways, I ain't too worried.

    Other than that, that's my reasoning.

    White because I like Zekrom for his looks and typing and there are a few pokemon exclusivly on white that I like better than white.

    I'm getting White, primarily because of Zekrom. Paralysis is worth more to me than burn, electric type covers more typically used opponents than fire (for me at least), and any Pokemon who can't learn Thunder to support the Kyogre on my uber team, gets a stern look and a thumbs down. Any other version exclusives should be easy enough to trade for via GTS, but it's the legendary that'll be tough, so 90% of my decision is based on that.

    White, for the version exclusives ('specially Paras/ect, Solosis line and Zekrom) and the White Forest will help me more in fulfilling my Pokedex. I hope to pick up Black at some point though, because the atmosphere and Rotation Battles are really appealing.

    The future surrounds us.

    Let us begin.

    I am going to get Black. I greatly prefer Reshiram over Zekrom. I am thinking about getting White once I beat Black.

    Same thing here! But also because of the Vullaby, Gothita and Cottonee lines.

    I'm going to be getting Black version, but mostly because I already have the Japanese White version. I do like some of the version exclusive Pokemon that are found in Black version (like Gochiruzeru's line and Reshiram), but I'm not too happy about the others. I think I'll enjoy Black City a bit more since you can apparently battle more trainers there. Pokemon Black's version of Souryuu City also seems to have cooler music, so maybe I'll enjoy that as well.

    I'm pretty sure I'm gonna go with White, because I like the legendary Black Pokemon thing more than the other, and a few of the version exclusives to
    White are some of my new favorites and will probably become part of my White team. But it was not an entirely easy choice. I do like the city locations in Black more than the forests in White. After 15 years, I think we've all seen enough forests. But still, I'm picking White.

    Black because everyone else wants white because of the black thing and I like to be different. Also it has like this dark town with "Black Town" sounds a lot more interesting then eco freindly "white town."

    White, for two three reasons.


    1) Colour. White is my favourite colour. It just seems very prestine and sterile, which I like.

    2) ZEKROM! An awesome, sleek design, coupled with a cool typing, coupled with a badass name, paired with a general badass feel. In comparison, Reshiram feels overly angelic and awkward.

    3) Iris. :3

    Black. Reshiram is awesome and Black City looks pretty cool. I'll definitely be getting White at some point, though.

    100% agree. Also On the cover of black it shows Reshiram having a fluff of hair jetting outward from "his" pelvic region. Reshiram is one angel I won't let around my kid.

    Also Zekrom as Wings AND arms, where as Reshiram's arm's have simply been modified into wings... like every other animal (insects and bugs aside) on this planet... booooooorring!
