Product Details:

Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version feature new Pokémon that players can catch, train and battle as they progress through the game, and some Pokémon can only be caught in one version of the game. For example, the Legendary Pokémon Reshiram can only be caught in Pokémon Black Version, while the Legendary Pokémon Zekrom can only be caught in Pokémon White Version. Additionally, the two games feature different areas for the first time in the series, with the game world of Pokémon Black Version featuring a unique metropolitan area called Black City, and a lush, green area named White Forest only found in Pokémon White Version. Pokémon Black Version and Pokémon White Version also mark the first time in a Pokémon video game that the seasons will change in the game world. Certain Pokémon appear more frequently during different seasons, and players can only access some areas during a specific season.

  • The games feature more than 150 never-before-seen Pokémon, more than any previous Pokémon video game has introduced. Until players complete the main adventure, they will only encounter these new Pokémon, creating a new experience that series fans and newcomers alike can enjoy for the first time.
  • Players assume the role of a young Pokémon Trainer who travels throughout the Unova region, catching and training Pokémon and battling other Trainers on a quest to become the Pokémon League Champion. Players must defeat other powerful Trainers while working to uncover the plans of the mysterious Team Plasma.
  • The in-game high-tech C-Gear lets players easily connect in a variety of ways. The C-Gear can connect to Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection and sync with the Pokémon Global Link. When users are playing locally, they can use the C-Gear to trade Friend Codes, trade Pokémon and battle seamlessly.
  • Using IR technology that is built into the game card, it's faster than ever to set up battles and trades with nearby friends.
  • The in-game Xtransceiver lets players using a Nintendo DSi or Nintendo DSi XL system connect via video chat using the system's camera. Up to four players can use the service locally, or two can use it via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection (each player needs his or her own system).
  • The games mark the first time in a Pokémon video game that the seasons will change in the game world. Certain Pokémon appear more frequently during particular seasons, and players can only access some areas during a specific season.
  • The Pokémon Global Link lets players save their game data to a website and enjoy their Pokémon outside of the game. When accessing the Pokémon Global Link, players can visit and customize the Pokémon Dream World to play minigames and watch their Pokémon's dreams; they can access the Global Battle Union to view their world ranking; and they can connect to the Global Trade Station, which lets them view their trades with other players.
  • In a series first, the two games feature different areas. The game world of Pokémon Black Version features a unique metropolitan area called Black City, while the lush, green area called White Forest is only found in Pokémon White Version. Some Pokémon are unique to one version of the game.

Rated 8.75 out of 10 by Game Informer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My favorite Pokemon game... EVER! Not only was this the first Pokemon game I was truly interested in as a kid, but I continue to love it to this day. I've played the game over eight times, each time training unique new Pokemon from the Unova region. On top of the new and fascinating Pokemon from Pokemon Black came a very compelling story that has defined the Pokemon world. The story challenges the ethics of capturing Pokemon led by the nefarious Team Plasma, serving under the Seven Sages and Lord Ghetsis. Ghetsis also seeks to gain more power and capture the Pokemon himself, so he trains a boy named N who eventually becomes the King of Team Plasma. N is an especially remarkable character in the Pokemon universe because his developments as a character left us all loving him even more. I absolutely love this game and it has defined my love for Pokemon from the beginning. From the amazing story, to the awesome gym leaders, to the beautiful towns and cities, Pokemon Black offers so much for players that is an absolute must have.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it like all the series I have all the pokemon games and I have to say this was really good. I loved most of the new pokemons and loved the new pokemon transformations and events. The story was nice and N was the best character created.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fun game Pokemon Black is a really great game but it has some stuff i hate. The story in Pokemon black is a really fun and interesting, it's about a team trying to take away Pokemon from all trainers but i'm not going to talk too much about that, the story is not too long or too short. 1 of the problems I hate about this game is most Pokemon look weird I know it's not a new thing but they should improve. The gameplay is AWESOME they changed some of the battling moves so they look cooler now and sometimes when you are playing the camera turns in different angles so it doesn't feel like some blocky world. A other problem is when you finish the story you don't really have nothing to do except catching them all but there isn't that much Pokemon unlike the other games. After all Pokemon black is a really great,fun and awesome game and you can play with your friends like in the other games so I really recommend to play this game if you are a Pokemon fan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from New Favorite Now, compared to Nintendo's last few Pokémon releases, this one is by far the greatest. The graphics are great, and the overall gameplay and storyline are stimulating enough to not put this game down! Definitely the greatest release since Leaf Green.
