It’s only been a few months since the 5th generation was announced in Japan, and already it’s being revealed in the U.S. with the advent of two new legendary Pokemon: Reshiram and Zekrom!
Not only that, but we have a release date of Spring 2011!
There are still some questions to be asked, however. For one, this is one of the few times that the Pokemon Company has decided to reveal new Pokemon at the same time in the U.S. and Japan. Why did they choose to do this?
Also, why is the white-colored Reshiram the mascot of Pokemon Black and the black-hued Zekrom the mascot of Pokemon White? Is it simply so they’ll contrast against the background? But then again, Pokemon Red, Blue, and Yellow’s mascots were the same color, so that theory wouldn’t work out. Perhaps there’s a different reason that’ll have to be discovered in the game’s plot. If so, does this mean the plot will be more intricate than the standard collect badges/fight evil team/beat the Champion formula?
Keep watch for more details on the new games!
