Pokemon Black/White is likely to be the last main-iteration installment into the Pokemon franchise on the Nintendo DS. It features a host of new Pokemon and an entirely new story.
|9||Anyone familiar with the Pokemon franchise should know well in advance that Black/White is nothing truly new to the series. Players will still capture Pokemon, make them battle, wander the world in search of gym leaders in attempt to be the very best, that no one ever was. If you're looking for a change to the core mechanics, hoping that somehow Pokemon's very traditional RPG elements have been swapped for something new, or are just interested in seeing some sort of massive change hit the series for no particular reason, it may be best to just turn away at this point. Pokemon Black/White isn't about changing the series away from its roots, but rather on improving the original equation. |
