What is this..


So as I was browsing the interwebz I come across the new Pokemon White and Black, released in September 2010 in Japan and set for release in March 2011 everywhere else. After finding out there would be a new Pokemon game released, I remembered back to the days playing Pokemon Red and Yellow on my Gameboy Color and the original 151 Pokemon. So I immediately browsed the pictures of the new Pokemon from the new generation. Personally I can't stand these new Pokemon and am not sure that these are even worthy of the series.
  
This for example is an Ice cream, a Pokemon in the shape of an Ice cream. They are evidently struggling for ideas now and should have stopped at Diamond/Pearl/Platinum, but that is just my opinion. While going through the list of Pokemon I started seeing multiple resemblances to already existing Pokemon.
My awesome MS Paint job, feel free to make fun of it. I know there are some differences but the are the same basic similar Pokemon. I'd love to hear other people's thoughts on this, drop a comment with your opinion.

  1. Jeeze more pokemon games, I'm glad I stopped playing a while ago, they should release more like coliseum, that was awesome. Also the ms paint pic is ok apart from the 50% white bit on the right lol.

  6. They need to have some big twist in the new one. Something like Pikachu dies or all the pokemon are mutated and turned into zombies or something.

  8. I like the remakes. But they should make a TEAM ROCKET version: like you start as a little grunt and have to catch good extraordinary pokemon. Did i say catch? Well, now you can steal them too with special Team Rocket pok├ęballs(these are quite expensive so you've got to be careful at which pokemon you will throw them) Your goal is to climb up in the TR ranks and cause alot of havoc while doing it. You can sabotage alot of stuff, bribe people.
    Just wanna be bad :D

  10. Reilly, that is honestly one of the best ideas. If they released a game like that, I would definitely buy it. I just imagined the amounts of awesome that would be contained in such a game..

  11. I never really liked playing pokemon games when I was younger, they all just took too long to beat and by then there would be 2 more released. It really does seem like they're trying to get every penny out of the idea

  12. Yeah they certainly are milking it for all it's worth.

  15. Pokemon red and black? Man, I remember back when there were only 100 (or was it 150?) pokemon. It was cool then, but I lost interest right when they released another 100. It was pretty obvious that they were just making as much money as they could from it.

  16. Yea, the pokemon these days are getting so played out. I personally like pokemon red the best out of them all. Really great blog by the way... it's very interesting. I'll definitely follow. If you have any time check out my poem blog too! Chao!

  17. The original (red/blue/green/yellow) was the best, it was so freaking addicting and so fun. The generation after that (silver/gold/crystal) was kind of okay too, but the new Pokemon were nowhere near as awesome as the first generation. Just making up more Pokemon was probably the easiest way for them to make a new sellable game, and when there's a buttload of money up for grabs, that's the only thing they can think about...

  19. Nice blog! I'm looking forward to this new gen of pokemon games, even though I doubt they will recapture my nostalgia joys of pokemon yellow many years ago!

  20. Some of the new pokemon are absolutely ridiciulous. I hope he's at least vanilla flavored, haha.
