Pokemon Black & White Celebrates Release Date With English Trailer

Screenshots of Pokemon Black & White have evolved into the game's first English trailer.

What good would the North American release date announcement for Pokemon Black & White be without a the debut English trailer to go with it? It'd be like Ash without Pikachu. Thankfully, the trailer has arrived just in time.

For many people this might be the first glimpse at Pokemon Black & White in motion. The trailer shows off the game's new visual style: a 3D world mixed with 2D sprites. It also gives us a look at the new starter Pokemon unleashing the fury of leaves and snouts, and their unique sound effect blorps.

We even get to see the glowing eyes and faces of Reshiram and Zekrom, Black & White's cover stars and legendary Pokemon. The trailer hints at a "new beginning" in a "new world" with the game's 150 new Pokemon, alluding to the fact that players cannot use any of their previously caught beasts until finishing Black & White.

To acquire a full roster of the new Pokemon, players will evidently have to journey through hollowed-out trees, fly through hoops, and avoid dangerous salarymen on the city streets. As revealed, Pokemon Black & White will be released in North America on March 6, 2011.

I'm still not too fond of the whole 3D thing. I guess I'll just wait for reviews and reactions from the community before making my decision whether I'll buy it or not.

It's a shame that the graphics haven't particularly improved since Gen IV....

Well, it got a perfect score in Japan, if that helps any.

Seriously though, I can't wait.

Oh my god, that Gym leader has half a 3D glasses!

The graphics look pretty good, although that's coming from playing Ruby. Makes me wish I still had my DS.

I still dunno which I want to get... :S

The Black dragon from the White Version looks awesome, but still the White Forest vs Black City? Ugh.

Got it. Beat it. Waiting for the next wi-fi Mystery Gift so I can finally have my Zoroark x3!!

Can't wait for the U.S. release though!! I must catch them all x3

I'll be getting them both on release date, but I don't know, I get the distinct feeling this could be the first Pokémon game I don't like.

I hope 3D is not going to be a requirement to play, cause I'm still playing on my Lite and thats doing me wonders so far.

other then that... I dont know. I'm definately getting the more foresty themed one, but thats about it. I'm sure I'll enjoy it, and if none of the new pokemon interest me to add as permanent roster members, the new abilities that pokemon get will be more then enough to make up for it. I mean seriously. Vaporeon, with Hydration? Blaziken, with Speed Boost? its a great day in the world of competitive pokemon battling.

Well, the trailer looks horrible.

You know Pokemon is beginning to fail as a good franchise when....

....they name one of their pokemon Tepig.

*headdesk*

I'll be getting White. Probably when it comes out. I haven't really played Gen IV very much, and I actually want to get back into the old game. I've been looking over the new roster, and I'm really looking forward to it.

Oh my god it's chibi Okami.
Anyway, I severely doubt I'll be getting either of these unless they do another competitive thing, I might then.

JWRosser:

Yeah, they really need to do something drastic after this game and not just the graphics, especially with the 3DS coming out. I know Nintendo doesn't want to mess with success(billion dollar success) but you gotta take a chance. Forget the superficial things like berries and dressing them up. Sorry but only hardest of the hardcore care about that stuff.

Yeah I know it's the same game over and over but I still want to get it! I think its the new pokemons that intrigue me (I think most of them are alright looking).

I wish that they would actually add more gameplay variety to this series, but they really have no reason to. I'm just getting sick of the same old formula; maybe they could add a better story, or some alternate gameplay modes that involve the trainers rather than the Pokemon? I don't know what exactly they could add, but I'd like it if they did.

I'm actually interested. I thought I wouldn't be, since I'm not a huge fan of the newer generations, but hell... I'm intrigued.

I'm still on the fence about the 3D view, though.

Great, now I can't decide what to do. Buy Dead Space 2, or this. I'll somehow get both.

You don't

Also I am interested in that little factor but also a little disapointed as well. My favorite pokemon got almost nothing out of that (Empoleon), They gave him an ability that raises attack when he's lowered in any stat. If it raised special attack, I'd be glad, but Empoleon is not really the most physically oriented pokemon available....

I'd have to say oshawatt is worse... and sadly that's the one I was gonna pick

I may change just cause snivy sounds cooler...

Why is Smugleaf named Snivy?

3-on-3 fighting now eh? That'll be...interesting.

You realize this isn't coming out for the 3DS right? It's for the regular 'ole DS

Yeah, but it would take much in between to make the entire game 3D.

0:40 -0:42

Why did that Tepig use a fire attack on Gigalith? A psychic attack from munna would've done more damage and still have gotten stab bonus.

Not like names matter anyway. Especially since you're only going to be seeing those first forms for, what? 7 minutes of gametime before they evolve?

No it won't.
It'll be an earthquake festival.

I think it will be kinda fun ^_^

Can't wait, i have loved all pokemon games and this will be no different, by the way Oshawott is awesome in the anime <3

I am super exicted over black and white I am totally looking forward to the 3D graphics and thr dream world I have been saying they should do some kind of use of the internet I mean look at all those "fan" MMOs out there DW wasnt what I was thinking they would do but its still awesome (expt the 1 hour a day limit)

my only 2 complaints are the 3 on 3 battles and that they didn't hold it back and make it for the 3DS

Snivy? Nah, I'll just name it Smugleaf XD

OMG! Pokémon actually moving when they fight?! Madness! I couldn't really tell but I hope they finally change the calls to something other than the same beepy-boopy-GBC-esque sounds they've been using since, well, forever. It'll still probably be "meh" for anyone who's played another Pookeymans game or is above 14 but maybe it'll at least have battles that are more exciting than watching paint dry.

are you talking about the championships? they have those every year. You can now battle random players over wifi now. No need for friend codes.

these games are super story intensive if previews from various websites are to be believed. You apparently run into the main bad guys and both your rivals at almost every new town you come across.

Having seen videos, the story is a bit better IMO. However, the stats for the starters are horrid, I'm really considering on not keeping them around, maybe except for Tepig, since his last evolution (Fire/Fighting) makes him a bit better.

*headdesk*

Right, because Tepig is much worse than Ekans, Muk, or Mr. Mime. *eye roll*

There have been bad names since the first generation, just like there have been bad designs since the first generation. The crowd of people claiming that the new monsters/names are terrible compared to the old games each time a new game comes out is really getting old now.

And now I'll tell you why I consider Tepig bad and all the others are better.

Ekans: It took me...I think it was this year to figure out it was snake backwards
Muk: I just liked how it went with the thing.
Mr. Mime: We don't see much Mimes anymore!
