Pokemon Black and White 2 Animated Trailer

legendary doofymons If you've played the first Pokemon Black/White then you'd recognize some of the characters in this trailer. From the looks of this it really does seem like a direct sequel.

The kiddies from the previous game have grown up a bit and are battling a new group of foes. I don't understand Japanese plus I haven't finished the previous game either so I don't really know what the hell is going on so forgive my ignorance when it comes to Pokemon lore. A first direct sequel to a Pokemon game is cool and all but after seeing this trailer I gotta to say that I'd rather just have be a full length animated movie instead of a game. Though the best scenario would be to release the games AND make a full length movie with the same quality animation as seen in the video below.


Pokemon Black & White 2 Japan trailer

The first trailer for the next Pokemon game surfaces. This is the first sequel to a Pokemon but to me I have a feeling they ran out of colors or gems to name they're games. Sadly I don't speak Japanese and I have a feeling you guys don't too, but we get a glimpse of the sequels gameplay and well it looks pretty much the same to me.

Nintendo has already announced that Pokemon Black and White 2 will be hitting North America by Fall 2012 so an english port is definitely in development. Japan of course get's first dibs on the game on June 23 for the Nintendo DS.

My biggest question since the game's existence is - Why is this a Nintendo DS game? Why not 3DS? I think everybody can agree that Nintendo needs to increase the number of games heading to they're latest handheld device since most of the big titles are already out. After the release of Kid Icarus: Uprising, I don't see much incentive to buy a 3DS.

PokéWalker more accurate than other pedometers

Evaluated against two other dedicated pedometers, the Pokéwalker - an add-on device for the HeartGold and SoulSilver Pokémon titles - is the most accurate device for counting steps, according to researchers at Iowa State University.

The results were presented recently at an experimental biology conference by Lorraine Lanningham-Foster, an Iowa State professor who has been studying the Pokéwalker's usefulness since its release. This study, which found the Pokéwalker most accurate counting steps taken on a treadmill at four different speeds, is a first step in ongoing research on the device, and how it encourages physical activity among kids.

"Pokémon is a big toy for kids," Lanningham-Foster said. "And that's why I was so interested in it is the idea that we have yet another active gaming format for kids."

If you're thinking this research is being funded by Nintendo, nope; it's funded by Iowa State's Nutrition and Wellness Research Center.

Locked in a rival battle: Pokemon Black and White

I don't know what it is exactly that makes me hit the replay button over and over and over again. I actually find it annoying sometimes when my rivals Cheren and Bianca just appear out of nowhere and block me especially when my Pokemon aren't at their best but when the music hits, my spirits get raised and I just up and kick their ass every single time.

If you haven't played Pokemon Black and White you probably won't appreciate it in the same light as I do but for those who have played it and those who still are playing it, you all know what I'm talking about.

Pokemon Black and White Hits Two Million Sales in the US

Pokemon Black and White almost reached 1 million sales in the Stats just on day 1. Now we're seeing its continued success. I know most people think that the new Pokemon look stupid and I've heard a lot of people complain about how ugly the game looks when the Pokemon are dancing around on screen but number don't lie. Apparantly most people out there like the moving sprites and the fresh new 150 Pokemon.


Nintendo of Amerca posted this info on their twitter page a few days ago and as far as I'm concerned I think they totally deserve it. I haven't had this much fun playing a Pokemon game since Gold.
