And thus, I begin. Hopefully.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?
No, I didn't. I never had the money when it was released. I did manage to borrow a copy from a friend however.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

I didn't buy Black on its Australian release (March 10, 2011). I waited until my birthday (October 1) to get it where I got Black as a birthday present.

Day 1: Did you buy B/W on its release date? (in your country) Why or why not?

I didn't buy them on the release day because I didn't have enough time to go to the store and buy it. But I did buy them in Singapore when I saw the chance, even though I asked my aunt to buy them for me beforehand; I just gave those copies to my younger cousins.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

No. There was a mix up at that evil, evil place called Wal-Mart. Got it like two weeks afterward.

1. Did you buy it on its release date?

I did! I'm surprised I was the only one. I remember I caught the bus and went to the shops to get the games, I was so excited. :3; Can't believe all of you so far didn't, though.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?
Of course I did! Well I got my mum to buy them while I was at school. Then when I got home, I played White non-stop until I left for school the next morning... no sleep for me. I was/am obsessed okay.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

Nope. I'm not sure if it's even available in my country; it can be bought on Internet, but it's too expensive for me, and I don't have a DS (it's too expensive too). :( But I think I'll buy Black or White some day.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

No, unfortunately. It wasn't available in my country, so I had my cousin who lives in the states buy two copies and send one of them to me.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

Nah. There were no released dates, IIKC, here in my country. I borrowed a copy of each from my cousin who came home from States, and played it. Afterwards, I got a copy of the ROM.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

I actually preordered it in GAME (uk chain of retailers which are pretty much screwed now :() and got it on the released date in the afternoon. Fortunately it was a Friday and I played it till 1am in the morning. It was actually the first time I preordered anything and decided to try it out on a game series I love.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

Actually, I pre-ordered it on GAMESTOP, two weeks before its release, which was crazy really. I thought that since it costed a mere 35 bucks, it would only cost this much if I pre-order it. My sister didn't though, since she didn't have the money at the time our of her wallet. When the day came to receive it, I realized it costed the same anyway, even if you didn't pre-order it. I was disappointed, but eh, I didn't care and watched as my sister not only bought the game, but the handbook as well for only 5 more dollars.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?
No. I was in Nigeria and they don't have an official release date, had to import.

2. Did you play as a boy or a girl? Did it match your gender in reality?
Boy and yes.

3. What did you think of Nuvema town? Too small? Should they have switched it up with a different kind of town than previous games?
It was good. Bigger than previous games with more houses, well the rivals' ones anyway.

4. Which starter did you choose and why? Did you regret it later?
Snivy and no. However I did find Servine's movepool far too limited.

I think I bought it the day after (if not the day itself but idr), I did want to get it as soon as possible but it's not like I was sleeping in front of the shop to get it lol, so to speak.

i really don't get this do i answer the next one tomorrow or D;;

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

Yep! :3 At least, I think so.... Usually with new Pokemon games I preorder them at GameStop a couple weeks before. And I'm pretty sure that's what I did with Black/White xD

I got it close to release date. However, I lost it and didin't complete it untill the next year.
I was starting to lose interest in Pokemon, but then I found White...instantly hooked T_T

Did you buy B/W on it's release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

I did go to GameStop to get them that day, I got both games, and it cost about 70 dollars iirc. I had to get them that day. I have done that since HG/SS.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

Unfortunately no. Mainly because there was no release date in my country and so I was forced to get a copy of the ROM and play through on that. I still don't think it has been officially released yet.

Actually;

1.) I also caught the bus to get it on release, from my local supermarket.
I had previously completed Black on a Japanese import, but was extremely hyped to get white on release date.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

I did not, reason being I had broken my previous model of a DS and was waiting to purchase a 3DS. It sure was hard for me to wait an additional month knowing the games were already out. :laugh:

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

I did on Release Day!! I actually preordered it and got it on the day it released, though I had to wait a couple of months after since I did not have a DS to play in. It was actually worth the wait. :D

March 4th, 2012, 08:16 AM
1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?
Yes I do because I could not wait after I heard the release day so I tried to get and play it as soon as possible. I really do not have the patient to buy Black/White after the release days because I will just go ahead and buy the used game rather than the new one.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

I was planning to. But my DSi got stolen, so I wasn't going to waste my money on a game I wouldn't be able to play. I was really disappointed because I was looking forward to it.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?
Of course I did, sweetie! Well being a Nintendo fan who HAS to get first/second party games at launch and being a Pokémon fan, it only made sense. Plus I believe I was racing with my friends to see who can beat the game first. ^^;

Yes, I had my sister take me to buy both Black and White. I was really excited and couldn't wait any longer.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

Yes! infact, I pre-ordered a couple of weeks before just to make sure I got it on the day and the reason I did this because I know I wouldn't be able to wait any longer!

ShinyDiamond
March 4th, 2012, 02:30 PM
1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

Unfortunately no. I didn't have enough money to buy the game. It took me almost a year to get the money. My cousin & his dad took me to Gamestop so I could get the game. I bought White that day & it was really cool!

Yep, I was so psyched about it of course I bought it when it came out.

March 4th, 2012, 02:39 PM
1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

No, I already imported the Japanese version so I waited a bit because I wasn't sure whether I should buy the German version first. I finally bought it approximately a month after the release, still in time for me to get another Victini from the European event.

Awesome.
March 4th, 2012, 03:06 PM
1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?
Yes; ever since D/P, I have bought the games on day of their release.

I pre-ordered mine from Amazon I think, and I'd hoped it would arrive on release day but it came on Saturday instead, so only the day after.

2. Did you play as a boy or a girl? Did it match your gender in reality?

I played as the girl (Hilda) cos I like her design. And yes, I am a girl in reality - I always play as the girl in my games.

(i guess this counts as Day 2 already. We passed 12 AM here)

2. Did you play as a boy or a girl? Did it match your gender in reality?

I played as the guy. Its been a few years back (in Ruby) that I last played as the girl one. Always the boy nowadays. And yes, I am a real life guy.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?
No but almost did. I pre-ordered White a few months before but on the day of release date(March 6) , my dad couldn't take me out to Gamestop to pick it up. So I had to wait to March 7th to get it.

Blue
March 4th, 2012, 03:42 PM
2. Did you play as a boy or a girl? Did it match your gender in reality?

I chose the opposite gender and went for a girl this time. I thought why not mix it up and after all it's a new game, new adventure, new gender!

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

Indeed I did; I did not want to wait 5 weeks for my walmart to restock on the merchandise when it was sold out, so I bought my copy of Pokemon White on the first day to beat the line up.

ribbit3
March 4th, 2012, 05:59 PM
1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

No, I never have the money and never really go anywhere, so I ended up getting it about a month too late to get Victini.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

Yes I did. I was looking forward to those games, and I had the day off from work. So I headed out to a local GameStop where I had pre-ordered them and got both Black and White.

Each day will end at 12:00AM Eastern Time.

The first day isn't over yet you guys! It ends in just under 2.5 hours from now. Just to alleviate any further confusion for people for the next 30 days.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?
Nope! I'd already seen so much screenshots and leakage that I wasn't too enthralled to buy the games. I also didn't have much money at the time of the release. I actually just recently bought them, and I kinda regret missing out!

The first day isn't over yet you guys! It ends in just under 2.5 hours from now. Just to alleviate any further confusion for people for the next 30 days.

Since I'm confused about the 1 & 2's everyone's posting, is it ok if I just post two q&a's in one post? :P

Anyways:

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?
Nope, I actually just got it in November. Reason being I didn't think it'd be all that different from the past games. I finally caved all because I wanted a Multiscale Dragonite..

2. Did you play as a boy or a girl? Did it match your gender in reality?
I usually play as a boy, since, you know, I'm a guy. But on a recent Nuzlocke run through Diamond, I decided to play as the girl :P

Oryx
March 4th, 2012, 07:11 PM
Uh, what was confusing about my last post? o_O I said "the first day isn't over yet", that seems like the most straightforward way to say that and I can't think of a clearer way to put it lol.

The second day's questions start at 12:00AM Eastern Time, or in 1 hour, 50 minutes

Anyone's who's already answered two not like it's a big deal, but I'm trying to clear up the confusion because people posting the next number before it actually switches over is obviously starting to confuse everybody as to which question is the right one to answer today.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?

Yes, yes I did. I was way too excited about the team I had planned out to NOT get it. Mom got it for me as an early graduation gift, so it made it a little sweeter.

In my White I played as a boy, which is what I am in real life. In my Black I played as a girl, because I can.

2. Did you play as a boy or a girl? Did it match your gender in reality?
Girl, despite her being a fashion disaster this time around. The opposite gender of my RL gender, but I've played as the girl since Crystal, so it would actually feel weirder if I didn't play as the female...

FedoraCladLad
March 4th, 2012, 11:56 PM
Oh gosh I'm so late for this but I'll answer both questions for the days I've missed.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?
I did buy it on launch date. Me and my friend walked down to the GameStop in the almost rain after preordering it. I was dressed all in Black, with my white DS Lite and picked up Black, while my friend was fully dressed in White, with his black DS Lite and picked up White. Fun times.

2. Did you play as a boy or a girl? Did it match your gender in reality?
I played as a boy, because it matches my gender in real life. Plus, it's a huge step up from the hats of the last two generations. The beret on Lucas looked silly and I don't even know what Brendan was wearing.

March 5th, 2012, 12:47 AM
I'll do these anwsers even though it just started yesterday.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?
Nope, I didn't. I got White a week after the games released and then I bought Black 3 months later.

2. Did you play as a boy or a girl? Did it match your gender in reality?
I played as the girl cause I am a girl in real life. (Although I played as the guy in Sapphire once.) Not a big fan of the girl's design, though.

Cazzef
March 5th, 2012, 01:42 AM
I'm late as well! Oh well...

I'll just quickly answer the first question, I didn't buy it when it came out, I never had a DS, by May 2011 I got a 3DS and bought Black, finished it and obtained all Pokemon (Thanks to PC!) and traded it off, I'll never trade Black 2 once I get it though.

Now...
I played as the Male, I always pick male anyway (I am one), I never really thought about using the female, ever.

A girl, and yes, it did match my gender in reality. I'm not much into playing my opposite gender since..well, for some odd reason, I'm not much into the experience.

Awesome.

2. Did you play as a boy or a girl? Did it match your gender in reality?

I played as a boy, so yes, it did match my gender in reality. That's what I typically do when playing through Pokémon games, but there are times in which I'll mix things up a bit and play as a girl.

A boy, it's been tradition since I was 3, I stick with all caps in my name too. =P
I am male, so yes it did.
The only time I've ever played as a girl (Aside from when temporarily helping a friend)
Is in my Japanese version of Pokemon Crystal.

I bought both! I had Black reserved at GameStop already and I had a Best Buy gift card that could totally afford me White, so I figured "Why not?" and got them about 20 minutes apart~

2. Did you play as a boy or a girl? Did it match your gender in reality?
In my imported and English versions of Black, I played as a girl; in White I played as a boy. I honestly like going back and forth between genders 'cause it's more fun that way~ Also I like both Touko's and Touya's designs so yeah XD;

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?
I did not buy my Black version on its release date. In fact, I think I didn't get it for a few months after it came out... mainly because I didn't realise it had been released for ages. In fact, it was my roommate who told me about its existence, and even then I waited about 2 weeks after that! Oh well.

I don't think I've ever played as a girl in any of my games. I know, I know: raving misogynist roaming the boards. Maybe in one of the next games that I play I'll just feel all different and play as a girl.

3. What did you think of Nuvema town? Too small? Should they have switched it up with a different kind of town than previous games?
Honestly, I'm sick of all the Pokemon games having your character start out in some small town in the middle of nowhere. Nuvema Town didn't stick out to me as being especially bad, but it was the completely generic and forgettable small starter town that's been overused. I would like my protagonist to be from a larger and well-known city, because big metro areas are my RL preference. I've got firsthand experience with small town life, and I hate it.

Well its not really interesting at all, neither are the other towns in previous GEN's, you never really visit them often. I would like the starting town (and other certain towns that lack features) to be a bit more 'interactive' if that makes sense.

Nuvema town is the epitome of the boring town. I mean, not much happened here, and is not really memorable at all. (I had to go to Bulbapedia and see which of the towns are Nuvema.) Since we entered a new era, why not switch it to a more lively town? Like Castelia, seeing as Unova seemed to be advanced in technology. Why not the starting town also>

To me, Nuvema was just like an ordinary starting town--being in a calm setting, having the player's and rival's houses and the Professor's lab. It didn't really have anything special.

I think they could've changed things a notch by having the player start at a bigger city, like Nimbasa.

Like the other starting towns, Nuvema Town seemed boring and there is nothing to do other then battle Bianca post-game and recieve a starter. I guess it would be a bit nicer if there were more people to interact with but Nuvema is just an ordinary town. There's nothing special about it.

As with all other hometowns in the series, I was regarded with a very warm welcome into Nuvema Town. Despite the games only having been out for a little over a year now, it still manages to hit me hard with nostalgia.

The size of the town was never really an issue for me, nor has it ever been in the series. That being said, it did feel rather odd having a house square in the center of town. That's but one minor complaint I have with it. One thing I really liked about Nuvema Town was its overlook of the ocean; a nice homage to the first two generation games. I like the hometowns just the way they are. :D

4. Which starter did you choose and why? Did you regret it later?
Oshawott. Like in recent U.S. presidential elections, it was a case of choosing the least of the evils presented to me. I always have a difficult time with grass starters (hence why I tend to stay away from them) and the idea of another Fire/Fighting type wasn't that appealing either.

I honestly don't regret it, because Unova is seriously lacking in decent Water-types and Samurott is one of the best among the choices that are given in the game.

Hikamaru

4. Which starter did you choose and why? Did you regret it later?

I started with my fave starter - Oshawott! I eventually got a Tepig and Snivy traded from my brother's White but I was most in sync with Oshawott. I know a lot of people love Snivy for its sneakiness but don't like Tepig for its "ugly" evolutions and Fire/Fighting type repetitiveness. I love all 3 but Oshawott's cute expression in the anime made me love it, after seeing Oshawott in the anime it made me want to choose him as my starter. I never regretted Oshawott cos mine (now a Samurott) helps me cross water with Surf plus he's one of the best Water-types available in Unova.

In White, I started off with Oshawott because I wanted one in the first place and it was the easiest one to use out of the three. I didn't regret this one and it helped me a lot throughout the game. While in Black, I started off with Tepig because I didn't want to choose Snivy. Like my Oshawott, I didn't regret Tepig but then a few months later, I dumped it in my box because I was addicted to Shiny hunting that I dumped my whole team in my box instead. But still, my Tepig was pretty good and it helped me throughout the game as well.

I liked it but I would have loved to start in Castelia. I dream of a game where you can choose your starter town. To make it simple they would have to make you travel to the same place to start, but your 'home' would be in that town and such.

But I was fine with Nuvema. Almost never there anyway.

4. Which starter did you choose and why? Did you regret it later?

My starter was Tepig, which was rather peculiar for me as I've always went with the water starter first in past games. I wanted to mix things up a bit and so I randomly chose Tepig over Snivy, and it's a good thing I did because Snivy's evolution line had to be my least favourite of all the other starters'.

Overall, I really enjoyed using Tepig and its two evolutions, I just really wish they didn't lack so many fighting-type moves. In the end I was happy with my choice, but from now on water starters will always be my first. Oh, and did I mention Oshawott's evolution line was among one of my favourites? ;)

Tepig because it's literally the best to begin off with. The other two basically have a disadvantage at the earlier gyms, whereas Tepig doesn't because its evolved forms can learn fighting type attacks for Lenora, and fire attacks for Burgh. Plus Plasma uses dark types sometimes, etc. Plus it's adorable!

3. What did you think of Nuvema town? Too small? Should they have switched it up with a different kind of town than previous games?
imo, I thought Nuvema Town was bigger than any other hometowns throughout the games. You have the Trainer's home, the lab, and Cheren's & Bianca's house. All houses are bigger in the game than the other games, so that's probably why that made me think it was big.

4. Which starter did you choose and why? Did you regret it later?
I'll be honest. I was going to choose Snivy, because...well, you know me. I like Grass-Type starters. But when I saw Oshawott in the anime for the first time, I fell in love with it, and I've changed my mind by choosing it instead of Snivy in the game. To this day I do not regret choosing Oshawott. My L62 Samurott is one of my powerhouse Pokemon in my party.

Snivy. At first I wasnt gonna go with it cause I didn't like it. Usually I go with the grass starter, but I thought it was ugly when the starters were first revealed. So I was gonna to pickTepig , but read Snivy had the best speed so I picked it instead. I don't exactly regret it, I just think if my journey would be different if I went with Tepig. But I really like Serperior so I'm happy with what I picked so no regrets. Maybe in BW2, I will pick Tepig or Oshawott.

Hehe... Nope, no regrets, and it just works.

The guy just looked evil, was followed by a group of evil-looking people, and his theme music was evil. Also, his speech didn't sound like a justified argument to me.

3. What did you think of Nuvema town? Too small? Should they have switched it up with a different kind of town than previous games?
I personally think it was cute for a starting town, but I think it would've been more interesting to make it part of a city or something. Make it so the starting trainer isn't a country bumpkin for a change :B

4. Which starter did you choose and why? Did you regret it later?
...I've gone with all three of them, fff. Tepig in imported Black, Snivy in English Black, Oshawott in White. Nonetheless, the only one I've regretted choosing is Oshawott. Daikenki/Samurott...just isn't as good in battle as Emboar or Serperior. Though I will admit I like Emboar's design the least of the three (but I think its shiny color scheme is pretty cool). I mean OK, Serperior and Emboar aren't all that great either. But they still were somewhat useful.

5. Were you swayed at all by Ghetsis' speech in Accumula town?
...Not really? As far as I'm concerned, he's no different than an extremist right-winger, and I'm not too fond of those to begin with :B

3. What did you think of Nuvema town? Too small? Should they have switched it up with a different kind of town than previous games?
I liked it's natural tone, especially the water and the grass colour.
It reminded me way too much of Twinleaf though, needed something more unique.

4. Which starter did you choose and why? Did you regret it later?
I chose Snivy, usually I'm pro fire type, but Tepig's design is truly horrible. I didn't really regret it, although he was slightly harder to train.. didn't reall effect much overall.

5. Were you swayed at all by Ghetsis' speech in Accumula town?

No not really, he sounded like a far too mad activist, I considered what he was saying and was annoyingly adressed by the repetitive 'Ladies and gentlemen'
I also disagree with what he was saying, he just annoyed me the whole time. So no, didn't move me at all. I just wanted to get on with the game.

After the different approach in Gen 4 I was hoping for something different but this was just a very forgettable town. In fact I can't even remember its layout anymore haha.

Day 4: Which starter did you choose and why? Did you regret it later?
Chose Tepig. I wasn't fond of Oshawott or Snivy at the time, but they grew on me. I didn't regret my pick but it's a shame it became Fire-Fighting.

It was interesting but kinda confusing at first since I knew about the types, but not what the curtains/the things you stepped on did :x tbh I'd much rather gyms w/o that since at least you can grind your starter like crazy and win anyway, but with this unless you GOT the monkey you don't really do that well if that makes sense. :(

TBH I didn't like the first gym very much due to that. Even with Pansage I still had considerable trouble against Cress and his Panpour after it used Work Up around 3 times while I was bashing its skull in with repeated Vine Whips from my Pansage which led to using a Potion almost every other turn as Cress's Panpour was firing off +3 Water Guns which dented me so hard I ended up having to sacrifice my Lillipup so Pansage could miraculously survive the boosted attacks and finish Panpour off with barely any HP left on Pansage's end. Granted it was a pretty memorable fight but it felt more frustrating if anything which is why I didn't really enjoy that particular gym.

I didn't because I didn't want to use the monkey, which necessitated me raising a Purrloin to an absurdly high level (18 IIRC) to take the gym on. I would rather it been a type that would be neutral to all three starters (Ghost would work, or Fighting) rather it be based on your starter type, if they wanted to go the "no starter has an advantage" route.

It was a new interesting concept. I tried all 3 starters so I could see the monkeys' difficulty. I started with Oshawott in Black, meaning I had to fight Cilan. I obtained a Pansear from the Dreamyard and he starts off weak compared to the other 2 monkeys. But yeah, I liked the change.

I didn't like it very much at all. It was pretty much forcing you to use the monkey you got to cover your weakness (I didn't though, I over-levelled instead). And what made it worse is that the first gym came so quickly, which meant there was less of an opportunity to over-level your Pokémon.

It was an interesting twist from past games, but, to an extent, it kind of forced me to use a Pokemon that I'd probably not use for the entire game (I boxed Pansear shortly after the win, while I boxed Simisage when I got to Mistralton).

It's a bit small, but if they really wanted to make a difference, they should have started in a city.
4. Which starter did you choose and why? Did you regret it later?
In Jap Black, I chose Tepig. The game was mildly difficult, but I never regretted it. In English White, I chose Oshawott. And no, I didn't regret that decision either.

No, not really. But having the main antagonist of the game come as early as that event was a surprise.

It was very...interesting. It was the first gym that wasn't rock type, aside from Jhoto's Flying type gym. Perhaps they just wanted a random 3-type matchup so they could make it difficult at the beginning. But anyway, I did like that they had us face one of the gym leaders depending on our starter.

6. Did you like the lack of starter bias that the the first gym had (it was the same difficulty no matter what type you chose)?

I liked the idea 'cause you were always at a disadvantage and thus had to compromise that is, go get one of those monkeys in the Dreamyard, fff but I think it woulda been more fun to battle all three consecutively~ Of course, they would probably only have to have their elemental monkey, but that's besides the point. I can see it going something like this: Battle the person whose type puts you at a disadvantage, then the person of the same type, and finally the person your type is strong against. (So if you started with Snivy you'd battle Chili first, then Cilan, then Cress.) This way, it's more of a challenge in that your starter might still lose to the final person.

...OK, that was a bit long for what could've been a one sentence (or one word) answer XD;

-Didn't really bother me as much, since I'm the type of person who trains my pokemon 5 levels higher than the gym itself...that alone was enough to beat Chili.

7. Which Striaton Gym Leader is your favorite? Why?
-I prefer Cress, since he's the best looking out of the three, and I love Panpour. Haven't battled him yet, since I only played the game once...and have a Snivy that I don't use anymore, but Cress seems to be the most "real" character out of the three.

The good thing about this is that there's a boy (near the Dreamyard I think? I can't quite remember.) that would give you either a Pansage, Pansear, or Panpour to battle against the gym leader's. I got a Pansear (because I chose Oshawott as my starter), and I was able to beat Cilan and his Pansage.

(Story time; might be long!)

When the trio were first introduced, I liked Corn (Cress) the most because he seemed pretty cute. Dent (Cilan) and Pod (Chili) seemed the least appealing then, too XD; At some point, I was considering picking up Corn for a Pokemon AU (that's "Alternate Universe" for those who don't know) on LiveJournal. However, as I was looking through fanart of Corn on Pixiv, I found that Pod seemed pretty appealing. I began looking up fanart for him instead, only to find that some of the fanart made his hair more pinkish and spikier, thus resembling the anime character I've been obsessed with over the past two years (whether you care or not, said character is Natsu Dragneel from Fairy Tail). Also didn't help he specialized in Fire types, as Natsu's magic is fire-based.

As a result, Chili/Pod is my favorite of the three. Also love his seiyuu, though Cilan's/Dent's is good too 'cause MAMORU MIYANO.

7. Which Striaton Gym Leader is your favorite? Why?

Cilan. He's the only one with a real personality in the anime, not to mention he's the new Brock. Also...TRAINS.

I missed day 6 without realizing it...
6) I liked that they eliminated the bias for the water and grass starters but it was quite hard until I found out that you can get a free elemental monkey that was strong against the gym leader's...
7) Chili, he look cool, plus he doesn't look odd like Cilian or Crest imo. I think most people lean towards Cilian due to the anime...

8. Do you believe in the Striaton Gym leaders being the Shadow Triad? Why or why not?

I'll be honest, I never put the possibility of this together. Very interesting! As for whether or not I believe it's true, I guess I would have to say no. Just based on the way the Shadow Triad acts in comparison to the Striaton gym leaders is reason enough for me to have the opinion I do. Still, I wouldn't be surprised if it was revealed in the sequels that the Striation gym leaders are indeed the Shadow Triad.

Since I didn't answer number 7, I'll answer it now and reply to number 8 in the next post, like Toujours did.

7. Which Striaton gym leader was your favourite and why?
None. They all sucked, though if I HAVE to pick a favourite, I'm going by looks, and Chili looks best. The other two look kind of creepy, especially Cilan. Never really liked him. ;x

8. Do you believe in the Striaton Gym leaders being the Shadow Triad? Why or why not?
Nope. :x I think it'd be awesome, but I think it's just coincidental that there are three of each. :(

...Oh God I just had a strange thought that GF will reveal that they are the Shadow Triad in B2/W2. A weird feeling of dejavu!

I don't believe that they at are the Shadow Triad. Aside from being a triad, i think there are no evidences contributing to that speculation. but, I really want them to be the Shadow Triad. A fitting plot-twist.

8. Do you believe in the Striaton Gym leaders being the Shadow Triad? Why or why not?
I believe so since there are three people in the striaton Gym and three people in the shadow triad. In the game, when we enter N's castle, we do not see Striaton Gym leaders in there, don't we?

No, it would make no sense. Just because there are three of two things, it doesn't mean they are related. They might end up fighting each other in B2/W2... who knows?

6. Did you like the lack of starter bias that the the first gym had (it was the same difficulty no matter what type you chose)?
I didn't care either way. Plus you get that monkey.

7. Which Striaton Gym Leader is your favorite? Why?
I like Cilan the best. Just because I don't like Chili or Cress.

8. Do you believe in the Striaton Gym leaders being the Shadow Triad? Why or why not?
Nope. Just because they weren't there to help doesn't mean they're the Shadow Triad. Plus if you go to the gym afterward Cress says sorry and stuff and that they were too late. It could be just a cover-up, but meh, it bought me.

To be honest, I think Nintendo totally did not intend for there to be three each, but it would be funny if they played on this in the remakes as a response to all the fanart that shows the Striaton gym leaders as the Dark Trinity o3o

None of them. Honestly, I didn't see any discernible difference between them besides their hair and outfit color and preference for their monkey Pokemon.

8. Do you believe in the Striaton Gym leaders being the Shadow Triad? Why or why not?
No, despite my love of conspiracy theories. The three of them just don't behave like they're actually secret ninja bodyguards with a hidden agenda.

6. Did you like the lack of starter bias that the the first gym had (it was the same difficulty no matter what type you chose)?

Yes and no, I liked the fact it was fair, but the challenger in me wanted to battle all 3, I think that should have atleast been an option after defeating the leader you needed to defeat.

7. Which Striaton Gym Leader is your favorite? Why?

Chili, he's the only one who's design appealed to me.
Cress was cool ish, but his hair seemed TOO rounded, he also looked to happy for my liking, yeah, I'm picky.

8. Do you believe in the Striaton Gym leaders being the Shadow Triad? Why or why not?

That' be cool, but it's highly unlikely..
I'd like it to happen, though.

8. Do you believe in the Striaton Gym leaders being the Shadow Triad? Why or why not?
Haha, lovely. YES. They were the only ones not present when all the gym leaders showed up at the end of the game, and the Triad was there. They are typically the only pair of three together with the Shadow Triad in the whole game, and since there is so little elaboration on the Shadow Triad, that could easily be a hint. Also, in the manga, the masks of the Shadow Triad are the same shape as the pattern on the face of the elemental monkeys.

so uhh yeah how much hints do you want you know lol. oh and before you go saying that the manga is not very much related to the game in that sense, give a reason why they would put that in the manga if it weren't even true in the game.

1. Did you buy Black/White on its release date (in your country)? Why or why not?
I don't remember I think it was the day afte rmaybe on the day. My mom got them for me and they had to go in the back and get them.

2. Did you play as a boy or a girl? Did it match your gender in reality?
White yes I playes as I guy as I am. But in Black I played as a girl which I am not.

3. What did you think of Nuvema town? Too small? Should they have switched it up with a different kind of town than previous games?
Na it was fine. But they could have added somethign to the south of the town where the water is.

4. Which starter did you choose and why? Did you regret it later?
I used all 3,but chose Tepig. Tepig was my favorite. But I got the other 2 after I finished the first gym. By tradeing with black.

5. Were you swayed at all by Ghetsis' speech in Accumula town?
No...it annoyed me.

6. Did you like the lack of starter bias that the the first gym had (it was the same difficulty no matter what type you chose)?
It was interestingly new. I kinda liked if. We got a 2nd pokemon early in the game that was purely water,grass,or fire

7. Which Striaton Gym Leader is your favorite? Why?
Chili. I like Pansear more then the others.

8. Do you believe in the Striaton Gym leaders being the Shadow Triad? Why or why not?
Hmm never thought of that. Maybe,but it really wouldn't make sense. Maybe we will find out in Pokemon Black and White 2



I am new to this,but sense today is the 11th shouldn't we be on question 11?

OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire
March 11th, 2012, 10:14 AM
8) In the Manga and in the Games, yes. I think that the trio is the shadow triad...they are the only gym leaders who never appeared in something beyond their role of being gym leaders...the rest help the player in journey thoughout the game...
Also you never battle them...I wonder what pokemon they might have in their teams...cough Monkey's cough. They could've made the trio fight the shadow triad to make the gym leader vs Plasma battle even...but they didn't...

It didn't start on March 1st, it started when the rest of the events started so it doesn't match up to the date exactly.

6. Did you like the lack of starter bias that the the first gym had (it was the same difficulty no matter what type you chose)?
I liked this because it made me not scared of picking a certain type, like Charmander in the first games because of Brock/Misty.

7. Which Striaton Gym Leader is your favorite? Why?
Cress because his hair is just super cool looking.

8. Do you believe in the Striaton Gym leaders being the Shadow Triad? Why or why not?
Yeah I'm 100% for this theory, at least in the manga. Not so much in the anime and games it's like 50/50.

I don't even wanna believe they are! I never thought about it actually. There has never been one gym leader on the bad side (except Giovanni), & the Striaton Gym Leaders aren't it. I still wonder who the Shadow Triad really are though...

I don't think so. Cress said that they got Bianca's message, but they were too late to arrive to help.

I don't go to the Dream World at all, actually, due to Wi-Fi issues.

No, that wouldn't make much sense but if it somehow did, it would be quiet a twist!

Yeah, not now though, I don't have B/W since I traded it away. It took me a while to get used to it for some reason, I did enjoy it however.
