Not quite sure where to put this...

Yep. Scroll down to the Special Units section.

...They spelled Reshiram wrong, though. XD

Edit: Oh yeah, I found this at the GameFAQs BW board.

this should own all other floats. Hope it looks good, though.

I hope people aren't wondering what that thing between Rashiram's leg's is when it's float passes by...it could cause controversy despite the fact that it's only part of it's tail...

On TV, it's usually sometime in the morning, at like 8-ish or so. Though, it may vary from place to place. You should check, just to be sure. :]

When is the parade?The parade begins at 9 AM EST. Also Reshiram and Zekrom will be near their actual heights. Personally I am surprised that they were able to enter a float so late.

Well, considering I'm a Power Rangers fan as well as a Pokemon one, I'm just saying that I personally, sincerely hope that the Pokemon float and the Power Rangers Samurai float both share the spotlight and come out on top dominating as the two most awesome floats of the parade. :cer_nod: :cer_boogie: Thanksgiving 2010 is going to be awesome! This is one parade that I'm actually anticipating and looking forward to; being actively intent on viewing it this time around.

I hope people aren't wondering what that thing between Rashiram's leg's is when it's float passes by...it could cause controversy despite the fact that it's only part of it's tail...

Oh gosh...you just had to mention that again?! Now I imagined some poor little kid asking what that is and getting traumatized... >_>

From what I read on RangerBoard, it's going to be shown at 9:00 AM in each U.S.time zone separately. So though East Coast will see it at 9:00, Central will not be seeing at 8:00 Central but rather 9:00 Central (which would translate to 10:00 Eastern Time). And Mountain region will see it at 9:00 in their own region, as well as West Coast/Pacific.

But again, that was just what I read, so be sure to double-check for your respective regions! :D

CBS (http://www.cbspressexpress.com/div.php/cbs_entertainment/release?id=26787) has the parade live in the East, Central, and Mountain time zones. It is taped delayed in the Pacific time zone.

They were a lot smaller than I would of liked.

The wingcrotch was there, just covered by the fire. If you look at Reshiram's sprite it really isn't that big. Sugimori's artwork has it huge though.

It was pretty cool to watch, I thought Reshiram and Zekrom would be huge balloons like Pikachu, but it was awesome nonetheless. I can't believe they still use the original theme from the show. I know it's what most people identify the franchise with, but I don't think it would've hurt to use the actual theme from the games.

I live in Australia sooo we don't get to see the parade on TV (or any reference to Thanksgiving as a whole, but that isn't relevant), but wow, before this I never actually knew that Pokemon was actually in a parade (and yet there probably is many more parades featuring Pokemon). It's pretty awesome how they're promoting B/W with Reshiram/Zekrom, though I feel they probably should have at least mentioned the starters by their English names to show that they're up to date with the Pokemon news, considering all they said was "including Zekrom and Reshiram" in the current Pokedex part. :(

As a whole, Reshiram/Zekrom looked awesome though!

EYfQN858FF8 I loved how they used the original Pokemon theme song for the parade. When the video began, all the nostalgia came back to me by just the song alone.

I remembered watching the parade last year; the Pikachu float doesn't change one bit. Oh well, I'm just glad that they actually pronounced Reshiram and Zekrom correctly. I wondered if anyone noticed Reshiram's "fur" and asked themself if it's what they thought it was.

TheChaosBlue
November 25th, 2010, 10:32 PM
I'd admit, I was a little zoned out at the sight of Zekrom and Reshiram. Wow, that's some early promoting right there. I was also thinking...was the Pokemon franchise ever represented with more than just Pikachu and the Pokeball at the Macy Thanksgiving parade?

PIIIIIKAAAACHUUUUUUUU!!!!! And Reshy and Zekky!!! :cer_boogie: But um, announcement much? I didn't recall hearing Pokemon in the "Coming Up Next" preview right before the commercials. Luckily I was in view of the TV when Reshiram filled the screen. I was slightly roaming around a bit, and the Pokemon and Power Rangers segments were the main ones that I highly anticipated in the parade. Heck, the minute I saw them, I zoomed right to the front of the telly screen. :D (I was a bit miffed that Pokemon and Power Rangers were not announced at the beginning of the parade, when the announcer was reading off and previewing the upcoming acts, performances, floats, and balloons. I mean, both of the franchises could arguably be considered behemoths, and they receive no mention at all except when they actually arrive? :cer_no: Disappointing...still, I'm grateful that they actually got featured in the parade! :))

The wingcrotch was there, just covered by the fire. If you look at Reshiram's sprite it really isn't that big. Sugimori's artwork has it huge though.

It was pretty cool to watch, I thought Reshiram and Zekrom would be huge balloons like Pikachu, but it was awesome nonetheless. I can't believe they still use the original theme from the show. I know it's what most people identify the franchise with, but I don't think it would've hurt to use the actual theme from the games.


:surprised: ...I was waiting all Thanksgiving break to return to PokeCommunity and post my opinion, and you go and straight rip the exact words out of my mouth. :cer_laugh:

Anyway, yeah, I thought the two yin-yang dragons would be floating balloons rather than mounted constructs, but I guess it makes sense if they were last-minute additions (that, and the balloons take up so much freaking space that each "franchise" only has a certain area allotted to it). I loved Zekrom's coloration, though. The Sugimori artwork and BW sprite makes Zekrom a bit darker so you can't see some details well, but the Zekrom's float captured the menacing and striking features perfectly. I really hope some parade-watcher got a kick out of the design (and Reshiram's, as well). :D

And again, I had the same opinion about the song. It's probably one of the most famous aspects of the franchise (similar to Go Go Power Rangers with the PR franchise, also featured in the parade, finally :D), but the games deserve their props as well! I mean, they started the whole series, contrary to the seemingly popular belief of the anime coming first! But I guess it sounds a bit too "formal" or "grand" for kids to connect with quickly...even the remixes in the Super Smash Brothers series and the later Pokemon games don't sound "pop" enough... In any case, I still loved hearing the original TV Pokemon theme in the parade! You hardly ever NEVER hear it on TV these days... :cer_laugh: I also thought the lack of vocals was odd, but I guess it was because the narrators were speaking...

I was watching and all I could think was "I wonder what the people watching it are thinking..."

Same here...I was especially wondering about the reactions of people who haven't played any Pokemon games since the RBY days... I hope that some of them experienced something like being amazed and going "Cool!" at Reshiram and/or Zekrom's design, and seconds later, they learn "Wait, that's a Pokemon?! Seriously?" It would be amazing if some nostalgia could be triggered in them, sparking a possible renewed interest for the Pokemon games. It may be a somewhat unrealistic event, but still, it would be pretty cool if someone underwent a feeling like that... :)

I loved how they used the original Pokemon theme song for the parade. When the video began, all the nostalgia came back to me by just the song alone.

I remembered watching the parade last year; the Pikachu float doesn't change one bit. Oh well, I'm just glad that they actually pronounced Reshiram and Zekrom correctly. I wondered if anyone noticed Reshiram's "fur" and asked themself if it's what they thought it was.

Yeah... *embraces nostalgic moment* that's the first time I've actually heard the names Reshiram and Zekrom in the spoken word... And they sound awesome! On TV, no less! :cer_boogie:

And why does Reshiram's wa-"wing" seem to be one of the more dominating things in this thread? :cer_laugh: I rofl'd at Kirbychu's earlier statement, though:

Sugimori's artwork has it huge though.

:cer_laugh: :cer_laugh: :cer_laugh:

I saw the video, I have to admit, pretty cool. It's a good way to promote the games, even though we've got ages till they come out in the US & Europe anyway.

I saw the video as well. Reshiram and Zekrom looked very cool as floats. I feel that the Unova starters should've been floats alongside them.

I was shocked when I saw it on telelvision because these games has not come out yet...I would have went but I was too tired from coming back from Buffalo since i live in NYC -_-"...I kinda wished that the floats were a lot bigger but atleast they got the prononcation of the names right

Oh man, let me tell you, I FREAKED THE FREAK OUT WHEN I SAW THIS IN THE MACY'S THANKSGIVING PARADE! Sure, it may not be a big baloon, but they were super-sized figures. Close enough eh?

Looking back, it is not as flashy as the past ones but still...just the fact that me seeing the floates threw me back to the mid 90's was a wild trip.

Now we wait for the tease to end and the games to be released. (For everyone else that is not a pirate. yarr!) *winks*

Whoa...I viewed the new Pokemon.com Happy Holidays 2010 video! I have to admit, they just got serious props for that one! Touring New York (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Unova) and seeing Reshiram and Zekrom (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Energy_Dragon_trio) and the diverse (http://bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Pok%C3%A9mon_Black_and_White_Versions) crowd of bystanders was so cool and OMG that makes so much freaking sense (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FridgeBrilliance)!!!!!! :cer_love:

Oh well, I'm quite glad Youtube exists, as this was unexpected for me :D Seeing them hopefully got more people aware of it, or just got them to think "Ugh they look less like how I remember them each year." Either way, I'm still happy to see it C:
