Gogoat and Yancham look nice.

Also nice to see the new girl officially has zettai ryouiki.

Japanese ads are just so...in-your-face compared to western ones.

Despite the trainers supposedly being 10 years old, they appear to getting older-looking as new generations are made.

Either way, I am looking forward to getting this game. I'm buying a 3DS just because I wanna play it. I just hope an improved version of it is released before then.

I could have sworn the new leads in black/white where suppose to be 15 not 10. I don't have source to link to as of yet but I'll keep searching.

*sigh* I'm going to have to buy a 3DS before this comes out. I already have a DSi and I'm not selling it because its a Pokemon Black Special Edition so I guess I sell my DS Lite for whatever pocket change its worth now. Like the grass-type goat, and it is interesting to have 4 starters this time around.

This is a common mistake made by fans. None of the MC's actually have an age. The 10 year old thing is anime only.

Yeah I remember them stating the 2 MCs from B/W were like 15 or 17

Ugh, they've completely run out of ideas for Pokémon designs.


(Don't mind me, I have to justify not having the money to buy a 3DS. I really want this.)

Horrible designs!

For the record, I think Red was supposed to be 11 in the original games (I don't know how Ash became 10). Though, I do believe it was said the leads in Black and White were supposed to be older than previous ones. (I don't know if that applies to BW2, they looks younger, than the BW leads)

Thirded. Serebii and Bulbagarden both sourced Coro Coro early on in Gen. V before Black and White had been released anywhere that they were older than player characters from previous generations.

No kidding!! I'll raise you a Nate (Black2) also! The red headgear with the blue top and the black bottoms (white on Nate, but he still had black leggings) and the black shoes is getting old! (Emerald has had the best character designs of any game/generation, in my opinion). If you want a comparison, look here: Hilbert; Nate; "Y".
