So, does this mean we'll have even MORE light type debates? Augh. =/ That's getting old. But I do look forward to more info from CoroCoro and Pokemon Sunday.

am i the only one thinking that nintendo or gamefreak could be in trouble by using the color black?(like what happened with jinx.)maybe some fans will have a different impact with the colors?

Its always possible in dub names it'll be Light and Dark or something along those lines.

I think it's you guys who are making such a big deal about it. They're colors. We use them in day-to-day life. It's okay, really.

i hope not! Black and White is a lot better than Light and Dark! or Oynx and Polar

^ Technically, they're not colors. They're the absence or presence of light. =P

So jagged and cool-looking... @__@

I think Black and White is a HUGE step back from the titles of the 3rd and 4th generations, but whatever suits Gamefreak.

I'm just curious as to what they're going to call the Third Game. Pokemon Gray or Pokemon Brown? Pfft.

if they keep that name they will probably be called racist.

Nope because those sort of posts will just get deleted. =D But don't expect an absense of them appearing. -_-


Personally - they're fine names. Pokemon game names are never special (Red and Blue, random metal/gem names...FireRed LeafGreen...yeah). I wonder if they will change for the english versions, but I do doubt it. We shall see I suppose!

Okay, really guys. Not everyone immediately jumps and calls racism when you see the words black and white. And imagine the backlash if they changed the names to something else for America? That'd make it seem even more racist than intended, which is to say none at all!

The colour black has been around a lot longer than the racial connotations.

If someone is going to get all upitty over the use of the word black reffereing to a colour in paradigm to white (but not the use of white, for whatever reason) then that person has a very skewered priority set.

Plus, it's at least considerable that NoA were already told about the titles' colours and considered that they weren't an issue.

Because to any rational person, they're not.

Pokemon Black n' White Nice Nintendo real nice I expect for these to be Pokemon Oynx and Pokemon Polar in America

you expect wrong. heartgold, soulsilver, platinum, diamond, pearl, firered, leafgreen, ruby, sapphire, emerald, crystal, gold, and silver have the same names as their japanese counterparts, the only difference is the language they're spoken in.

Its almost time
I think this is very uncreative of Gamefreak to use such names.

(Btw, this isn't going to cause racial problems. Black is a COLOR!)

I'm that good.
Talk about the names only? What the hell else is there to say? Lolracism? Because that's ridiculous.

You might as well lock the thread if the topic is "Black. White. Black and white."
