Title: Re: Black & White TCG Expansion Announced - April 25th, 2011
Looking forward to this stuff actually! Especially the tins. I'm a fan of buying tins for some reason. They're just neat to me, plus they're not as boring as the used to be. Too bad they don't come with figures like the starter tins too, which I'm also looking forward to. Some of the art is really nice too.

Also, there's a terrible error on the poster advertising on the theme decks. For the Blue Assault description, it doesn't mention Samurott, but Galvantula, the electric tarantula Pokemon that has NOTHING to do with the starters. That is, unless there is a Galvantula card in the deck, but that doesn't make a whole lot of sense to mention that and not Samurott.

It'll be interesting to see what other music they have yet to bless us with on CD. I cannot wait for the next volume. The first was a blast of nostalgia for me. I can see this one being just the same. :)
Title: Re: Expectations / Wishes for Pokémon Black and White
Personally, I'm on my toes with Black and White. I think it was a pretty foolish move to put Black and White on the DS instead of the 3DS. Were they so excited about how it was turning out that they couldn't wait for the new 3DS? Bah, whatever.

When I saw the screenshots, I felt kinda disappointed. I guess it was easy to expect for them to look the same as D/P/Pt/HG/SS, but it wasn't just that. The view of the city looks cool, but the overworld sprites of the human beings are just too small. On the DSi or DSi XL, it might look okay, but if you're using an original DS or DS Lite, it's probably going to make you squint most of the time. The battle scene looked okay I guess, but something just didn't look right. Maybe it was the lack of the text box. I'm too used to it. Also, the protagonists look a bit too generic. Maybe it was just the sprites though. We haven't gotten their official art yet.

Zorua and Zoroark are okay I guess, although Zoroark looks somewhat silly due to some certain patterns, but there's nothing terribly wrong with them.

Something else is how fast this is coming in. Usually if a new generation is coming, we get hints very gradually, like Pokemon in movies (Snubbull, Marill, and Donphan in the first movie, Lugia and Slowking in the 2nd, the Latis and Wailmer in 5th, Munchlax in 7th, etc.), but we're just now getting a 5th generation Pokemon in probably the last movie of the D/P/Pt series, and now we're getting all this news at one time. It gives me an uneasy feeling that they've rushed all of this in; however, they could've just been keeping this secret all this time and giving us the news faster so the fans aren't whining about waiting so long for the next generation. Still, as I said, it feels too early.

I'm trying not to be to negative about it though. I'm probably poking at all the bad things and not noticing the good things, but sometimes it isn't easy when you always have high expectations for a series like Pokemon.

Anyway, to the things Black and White should have. Since it's on the DS, it should have 3rd generation compatibility, unless Nintendo's pretending that the DS and DS Lite never existed and just focus on the DSi. Yes, you could just transfer 3rd gen Pokemon to the 4th generation games and trade with 5th generation, but that's a little too much work. It'd get pretty annoying to have to do that. A patch for My Pokemon Ranch would also be nice, but I doubt they'd do that, but if they did, it would give NoA a good reason to finally update it. As for PBR, they'll probably just make some new game, but now we'll get all these people begging for Pokemon Stadium 3 (which I really don't see happening).

And the Light-type. It's been a pretty big debate. Personally, I don't see it necessary. It might be cool, but it really isn't necessary. I don't really like the idea of it, but if they do it, I won't really care either.

As for the Pokewalker, it would be awesome if it worked on it, but again, probably not. The Pokewalker is basically just the equivalent of the Pokemon Pikachu 2 for Gold and Silver. It was more of a nostalgia factor than something they'd actually use for new, upcoming games.

I do hope Game Freak means it when they say they're revitalizing the series with these games, and in a good way. Pokemon's one of my most loved franchises, as well as for others. Until then, we'll just have to see what they have in store.

I do have to agree with the whole only "one per ticket" thing, but I guess maybe that would be a little too generous to give all three. Still, I can't help but wonder how they'll handle this if they bring the beasts to the Americas. I still don't understand how they'll only allow you to get one to begin with. Ah well, I just hope you get to chose and it's not determined by something you do in the game.

I like the official artwork they did for the alternate colored legendary beasts. Raikou looks pretty cool, as well as Suicune. Entei is okay, but his alternate colored form isn't that different from his original one.

The movesets chosen for the beasts were pretty well thought out, especially Raikou's, although Zap Cannon's accuracy is just too low. :/ Suicune's is okay, and so are Entei's. Celebi's moves are okay too, but Leaf Storm doesn't seem like the best choice. Oh well. That's why you're able to get rid of the moves you don't want. :P

I think TPCi should use a Pokedex before identifying a Pokemon. :P

This is a talking Zorua plushie released around the time Movie 13 came out in theaters. He's about 12 inches tall and he was made by the company Takara Tomy. He says around ten catchphrases, the voice box uses motion technology (when you shake him, he speaks) and requires three AAA batteries, and he's made of some nice, soft material.

Unfortunately, I don't know much of what he says. ^^;

It took quite a while to get this shot. @[email protected] It looks very neat though.

This is... certainly a rare sight. o_o

A shiny Entei decided to show up in my Pokemon HeartGold (which I've barely played). It "doesn't have a lot of worth" because of the event ones now, but this is still something cool. Not many people can say they have a legit shiny roaming legendary.

Just got my Tsutarja in the mail today and went crazy by taking a bunch of pics while the sun was still out. lol

Dunno why I chose Shinx, probably because he was the most logical Pokemon to appear so commonly and randomly in grass. Though I guess in Isshu Shinx would be pretty rare. lol

Yes, that is a Poke Ball besides Tsutarja. :P
