All New Pokemon from Pokemon Black & White Revealed

image

Copies of Pokemon Black & White have been released early in Japan, which means that the entire roster of newfangled Pokemon is yours for the viewing.

Nintendo has been keeping its hand very close to its chest regarding the designs of the new set of Pocket Monsters found in the upcoming Pokemon Black & White, only releasing a few new 'mons at a time thus far. But with the game's September 18th release date days away, advance copies of the game have begun to hit store shelves (and torrent sites) over in Japan. Naturally, the datamining scene has been all over this - and has ripped the sprites of every single Pokemon found in the new Isshu region.

Pokebeach has the full collection, and the first thing you'll notice is that the leaked images that were supposedly the evolution of the new starting Pokemon ... were 100% on the money. On the down side, it looks like yes, we do in fact have another Fire/Fighting starter.

So, how is the new roster? Overall, not bad. There are some really cool designs, like the incredibly manly evolution of the incredibly cute deer, the sunglasses-wearing crocodile, and the afro-sporting bison. There are some Pokemon that seem to have had a nifty idea behind them - like the gothic lolita 'mon, or the Flying-type Pokemon inspired by the Nazca Lines - but that just turned out strange. And then ... let's just say that some of them are really weird in general, and leave it at that. But then again, the first generation had Magmar, Lickitung, and Jynx, so we've always had to deal with weirdos.

I will readily admit to wanting to hug that Yorkshire Terrier one, though. It's just too cute!

Other leaked information includes the different types of gyms encountered in the player's journey through Isshu - including a variable-type gym that changes depending on which starter you picked. Tricksy little Pokemon trainers.

What's wrong with a Fire/Fighter starter?

I think my Blaziken would like to have a word with you funk :D

Well, I had seen most of the list a lil while back and was unsure myself...but I so want the Pigeon one...

Nothing, it's a great combination.

If only this didn't make the third time in a row we've had it, after Blaziken, Infernape, and now Porcano or whatever its name is.

great another fire starter this should have ended with my blazing chicken. Why does the water starters final and second form look like rip offs of the mudkip evolutions? I saw the list and the legendaries look rather....weak. But then again how excatly are going to top "GOD".

There's some monkey ones, a grass one, a water one and a fire one on there, as far as I can tell. They look great.

You know, these seem like something more out of Dragon Warrior Monsters than Pokemon.

Still, a good amount of interesting looking ones this time around. It seems that if I get this im going to go with the usual grass starter, never used fire, water only on second go-throughs

Wow, new gen Pokemon look shite now don't they? *Hugs Pokemon Soulsilver* Ah, back when pokemon looked awesome.

The first 3 *bird* Pokémon are almost EXACTLY the same as Starly, Staravia and Staraptor. Why do they bother?

I've also spotted an Infernape clone in there somewhere.

Most of these look cool except #558. It's a paras with a brick on its head. What... the... fuck...

Fine, I'll look at the list of them...

Well, guess only poison is missing a legnedary.

Edit: Oh look, more dragon favortism. And people wonder why I don't like dragons...

Edit 2: And ya, I thnik most of them look pretty good. Probably gonna be my favorite generation.

Edit 3: And the ghosts got a shitload of new guys. According to Bulbapedia, one is based off of zombie apocalypses.

Take those glasses off, all generations had their good and bad designs.

Wow.
I think these look incredibly awesome.
Im defiantly choosing the Grass starter.
And both that Bison and Crocodile have reserved places in my team.

Man this is cool.
Though really...Fire/Fighting is getting old.
But still cool.

I just hope that the rumors of a Ice/Dragon type are false.
No one should have that kind of power.

Sadly, there's still no Dark Type Gym.

wait a sec...

wrong intro
perhaps we can just put Pokemon asleep...it had a good run now you are...I cry

Why is everyone complaining about another fire/fighting type? We got 3 new bug/steels!

Sorry, you were saying? :P

Don't be dissin' mah Magneton!

The three legendary looking flying things are my most hated, other then that. My favorite is the candle ghost.

Seriously those three flying things, the arms are all the same, that's just lazy sprite-man-ship.

John Funk:

Perhaps a fire/ground, Water/ice and leaf/flying starter?

It'd be new at least.

Some of them look pretty epic. Many look very, well, lame. I'm only buying if the gameplay is a significant mix-up for the series. Otherwise I'll consider my Heartgold definitive.

Wewt! Gonna have some fun reading through what tey offer us this time...some looking good so far!

What?! Some of these aren't even designs, that's just a child's drawing of a deer!

I don't mind the Pokemon. It's the Gyms i have the issue with. Another Flying Gym? Another Ice Gym as the 7th one? At least mix up the order! Have there be a Rock Gym as the 5th one! Or the first one be a Water Gym. Still never been a Dark Gym, and Poison has only been used once. I don't mind that they repeat types, because it's bound to happen. But placing them in pretty much the same spot annoys me. This is why so far, the concept of the First Gym seems to be my favorite.

As for the Pokemon themselves: It's the same as it was since Gen 1: Hit and Miss. But this one has the most variety of quality. These ones can be from "DAMN! That's awesome!" To "Dude... what where they smoking?"

I'm really liking the new Pokemon. The grass-starter is the coolest since Treeco only the final form is cooler than Septile.

I can't wait to get my hands on the crocodile x3. Among the some of the others...many of them...too many to list >.>;;

I love Mr. Blazie. But it feels like they ran out of ideas. The -maru family should be water/fighting, they're samurai!

Sorry, you were saying? :P

Glad to see someone else is able to criticize Gen 1 and Gen 2 pokemon. They give the new ones a lot of flack, but there were some in the first few that were just... wtf. (I'm looking at YOU, Magneton. But all is forgiven since Magnezone came along...)

Hmm... I think there's actually enough good ones to form a full team out of things that on't look terrible.

The fire/ghost candle looks cool. I will call it Candlejack and I will mak

You forgot Execcutor.

You can totally tell its a psychic thanks to its palm-tree look and grass type color scheme. Also, it makes perfect sense for eggs to evolve into trees.

...Why does everyone hate Magneton? Has my favorite electric type!

I gotta say, I'm quite impressed. Sure, they aren't the level we'd expect from gens like the 2nd, but I feel like it's going very macho and "last year" if you understand what I'm trying to say. I'm feeling a lot of them, especially since one looked like an electric bug types, a lightning spider, tell me that's not fucking awesome, lol

I can't wait to get my mits on the new game :D

Who here is nostalgic for the days when pokemon had a loose basis on actual animals?

(And as such felt like a plausible alternate reality for our world)

Some of the new ones seem decent, but others (ex: Jiheddo) look absolutely retarded.

I tend to call people out when they say "they changed it, now it's ruined" but the corollary is that you need at least a figment of their original premise, rather than the typical pop-culture shit whored out for a quick buck as we can see here; actually, as we can see in all nintendo games.

Inb4 everyone stops bytching and just accepts the new Pokemon.

Also the first pure flying type looks like crap. I wanted something cool like a eagle or some other famous american bird. Not a Ogre...

Can I get a version of the game that only includes 20-30 of these new 'mons? Because a lot of the new ones make me sad, and I don't want to play a game that'll make me depressed.
