Zorua vs Zoroark!


That’s right, everyone! Pokemon Sunday and CoroCoro have officially revealed the fifth generation of Pokemon games, entitled “Pokemon Black Version” and “Pokemon White Version.”

The fifth generation games: Pokemon Black and White!


The new Pokemon games do not have a release date yet, but surprisingly, they will be on the Nintendo DS/DS Lite/DSi systems instead of the new 3DS.

The official Pokemon Black and White website can be found here:
They promise to release more information later this month, so stay tuned! 

In the meantime, CoroCoro showed a few scans and it seems the graphics of the games have been improved.

The starting town?


 It seems the graphics for the paths, signs, and house have been changed to look more realistic, but still keep the 2D Pokemon feel. This kind of makes the characters look a bit out of place, but I guess they’ll have to fix that next generation.

An unknown 3D city


 Once again, the Pokemon Company and Game Freak are really getting into the 3D feel with this city, and it looks great, especially with the tall buildings’ windows and the ocean and sky in the background. But wait- where’s the Pokemart?

Inside a Pokemon Center


 One of the biggest changes I noticed inside the Pokemon Center is that it seems the Pokemart is now combined with the Pokemon Center! This is a great idea in my opinion; it’s much more convenient than to search around a city for two separate places.

It also seems that when characters talk to you now, they’ll speak inside a speech bubble so you can tell who they are.

I’m guessing the Wi-Fi center is either to the left offscreen, or maybe mixed in with the Wireless Communication floor on the top. 

The rest of the Pokemon Center, aside from the improved 3D effects, looks pretty similar to HeartGold and SoulSilver.

Male hero inside a cave


Hmm… are those water drops I see dripping down from the stalagcites? Aside from that, the cave looks cool, but there’s nothing else of note here.

A wild Zorua appeared! Zoroark used Dark Pulse!


And finally, we’re back to the battle between Zorua and Zoroark. Obviously, a lot has changed from the 4th generation’s battle scenes. You can now see the entire Pokemon you’re fighting with, even including its shadow! The background is defined now too, instead of D/P/Pt/HG/SS’s blurred background.

Well, that’s all for now, folks! Stay tuned for more Black and White news!!
