Pokemon Black, White to be different
And not different in that some Pokemon aren’t in one version that are in the other. Oh no. Oh no. We’re talking actual differences. See those two areas above? Well, the city’s going to be in Pokemon Black. The forest is only in Pokemon White. They occupy the same space in the game world, in fact.
Personally, I’m pretty enthused. I’ve been playing every Pokemon game that exists recently (have beaten Red and Crystal, now working on Emerald), and you know what? It seems like Nintendo finally has a good grasp on what makes a good Pokemon game and what detracts from the experience. Differences between the games is another good sign, because…it’s always fun doing different things than your friends when it comes to Pokemon.
There were also new Pokemon revealed, which are too blurry to comment on. One looks like a big ol’ blue octopus. I’ll leave it at that.
