It's the best one every story wise. Finally a good story, it's not great, but it's the most adult of any of the games, besides the first one.

The first game they actually talked about POkemon eating one another, but after it became a children's show it lost it's edge, but Black and White, add a level of maturity to the games while keeping them very causal.

Even though the monsters looked awful at first, they've grown on me, and this has been the best one since the Gameboy Color version.

Ever since my Black version showed up a couple of days ago, my DS has gone everywhere with me. It's been pretty much attatched to my hip lol. I put 8 hours into it my first day, something I haven't done with a game since ME2 on 360 last year.


i didn't want to get this one but im still debating with myself... it's still so fun to catch em all. D:
