Should I buy Pokemon Black/White

can't decide if i want to buy the new Pokemon game or not. My first Pokemon game was Pokemon Blue, but I was to little to remember much about them. My first "true" game was Pokemon Gold and where most of my of my memories are (and also with Pokemon Sapphire.)

Ever since the announcement of the Pokemon Black and White, I have been on the fence about it. So I wanted to ask this forum, to help me make my decision. To give you my perception about the game and to help me either buy the game or not, I made a Pro Con list.

Pro
New Pokemon Game(story, Pokemon)
New Feature(seasons, new battle look, city view, three v three)
Good reviews
Con
Bad Pokemon Names and they seem (extremely) different from past generations
Could stray too far away from Pokemon formula
No previous Pokemon in the main story

I think one of your cons, "no previous Pokemon in the main story", could be a potential pro.

Think of it like this; in the other generations, you expect the Pokemon from older gens to appear, and thusly, you can gauge their strengths and weaknesses right off the bat. With Black and White, that's nonexistent until the end of the main story. You are thrust into a new region, and with it, new memories and new feelings unlike the older generations.

I feel the same way, unsure whether to get it or not. I see the appeal to new fans, but for us originals the change is far too drastic. Though just as my friend said, don't knock it until you tried it. So I'm gunna wait until someone else gets it and watch over their shoulder.

Just get it and give it a try, if you don't like then sell it. You might just find you'll love it...

Hey if your a Pokemon player you should try it out and see if you like it just like dark legacy said. But instead of sell it you trade it for some other games half price at gamestop.

Technically there will be old pokemon in the main story. Just after you beat the Elite Four. There is always more going on after the Elite Four.

I don't know... After the disappointing Post-Elite4 SS and HG produced, I wouldn't be too sure.

Don't forget some fairly wicked new online features in the "pros" list.

Anyways, if you're reluctant, I say rent it from somewhere and just test it out. If you like it, cool, buy it as soon as you can. If you don't, you're not stuck selling back a game you don't like at minimum price. Easiest solution.
