View Full Version : B/W: Black or White?

May 18th, 2012, 4:05 PM
What game did you choose?
What is the reason for choosing that game?
do you like white forrest or black city better?
Which legend do you think is better?

I like pokemon black a lot better because of the legendary and because of the black city, unlike white forrest black city offers quite a bit more action.
Black city also sells more items.

May 18th, 2012, 5:03 PM
Both, but I prefer White.
I thought that Zekrom looked cooler than Reshiram when I first got them, so I chose White to work with first.
I like White Forest better because you can get rare pokemon, while the items in Black City you can get from dust clouds or with the Dowsing Machine.
Now that I think about it, I kinda like Reshiram better because it's a special-based attacker and there are more physical attackers in the region than special-based.

Lol either way they are both great games, pretty much every pokemon game out there is great

May 18th, 2012, 8:02 PM
I purchased Black myself, but I strongly dislike white forest >.<

I would much rather Black City for the consistent battles you can have (I think you can battle people there every day?) Also, White forest just doesn't appeal to me due to the lack of purpose. sure you can get different wild pokemon, but I do not really care enough to collect them. I should have thought of that before I bought the game. Maybe I will get another chance when Black/White 2 is released.

May 18th, 2012, 8:28 PM
I chose Black cos I like Reshiram better than Zekrom.

In fact, most of Black's version exclusive Pokemon persuaded me, particularly the Gothita line.

Also, I liked Black City better cos I love technological scenery.

May 18th, 2012, 8:59 PM
400 views already? Woow. XD;

Anyway! I have both Black and White, and while White is my primary game, I actually prefer Black's Black City & Opelucid City. :( Prefer White's exclusives though, so it sorta works out!

May 18th, 2012, 9:02 PM
seems fair enough, both games seem really good, but for me im more into the big cities :D

May 18th, 2012, 9:39 PM
I liked White more, mostly because of Zekrom, but I also really enjoyed white forest, until everyone left and everything disappeared lol

The only thing I like about Black better is Drayden. Such a bad ass lol

I got white for Braviary and Throh on my team.

I chose White because I'm subconsciously racist. for Reuniclus and Braviary, and because I like Zekrom more. When I originally got the game, I wanted White Forest for exclusive captures, but in retrospect, Black City is a lot more beneficial post-game.

I chose Black cause I'm deffo racist yah? I actually did choose it because of the colour though lol.

May 20th, 2012, 6:48 PM
Actually i got pokemon black to prove that im not racist ;)

May 20th, 2012, 7:25 PM
I wanted White from the very beginning but my friend wanted it as well so I ended up getting Black. I like the White exclusives better... in fact, a lot better. Reuniclus line > Gothitelle line.

May 21st, 2012, 2:52 PM
I chose White, because Zekrom looked cooler than Reshiram, and I liked Reuniclus over Gothitelle.
Competitively, Reshiram is better. So yeah...
I'd probably like Black City better. But I haven't been in it before.

What game did you choose? I chose White version.

What is the reason for choosing that game? Officially, it's because I really wanted a Houndour; subconsciously, however, it may have been me not wanting to be a racist.

Do you like White Forest or Black City better? I hate Black Cityso much that White Forest wins this, even though I've never set foot in it evereverever.

Which legend do you think is better? Despite the fact that I kinda wish I bought White version, I do prefer Reshiram to Zekrom. I guess I just like its design somewhat more, and it wasn't horrible to use.

May 23rd, 2012, 10:02 AM
What game did you choose? White.

What is the reason for choosing that game? Didn't really like Reshiram or getting Black because it didn't seem as cool.

Do you like White Forest or Black City better? Don't like either very much. But I guess White Forest because it's very open.

Which legend do you think is better? Zekrom, he just looks so much more battle ready and built to pummel Reshiram.

May 24th, 2012, 7:03 AM
I decided to pick up White since I had preferred Zekrom over Reshiram at the time they were first revealed. Over time, I stuck by my decision due as I liked White's version exclusives more. I've never really kept a save file long enough after beating the game to decide whether I liked White Forest or not, and I've never bothered looking up how Black City works, so I suppose either don't really make a huge difference to me.

May 24th, 2012, 1:15 PM
I picked White because I liked Zekrom a lot more then Reshiram, I also liked white forest more then Black City. But after a while it felt like white forest was just a forest filled with easy-to-catch-in-SoulSilver-Pokemon's (at least the one that lived in my white forest), while in Black City you can buy evolutionary stones and such. :(

May 24th, 2012, 3:44 PM
Sorry if I have posted. I picked White because all the version exclusive pokemon I liked were on White. Though I have both

May 24th, 2012, 5:30 PM
I prefer Black because I like Black's collection of Pokemon better than that of White's. White Forest is a lot cooler than Black City however.

May 25th, 2012, 5:01 PM
Interresting choices everybody!! it looks like most people are leaning towards pokemon white And im started to believe that pokemon white may be better.

May 25th, 2012, 7:08 PM
I got white because I liked Zekrom's design a bit better. I love them both, I just liked Zekrom a tiiny bit better. And the name. Lol. And my brother got Black. We always get the opposite of each other. It's too bad he never got Soul Silver though..

May 26th, 2012, 5:43 AM
I chose the Black Version, because Reshiram more appealed to me than Zekrom.
Concerning Black City or White Forest, I have to say that I'm disappointed of both... Maybe it's because I was expecting a very amazing place, and finally they are not that awesome... I guess I prefer Black City anyway, battles are better.

May 30th, 2012, 8:18 AM
i got both of them on there day of release and i still cant choose which 1 i like better the both have pros/cons

June 7th, 2012, 12:19 AM
I also like Pokemaon Black, it is probably because black is my favorite color and also because in black there is a lot more intensity and action.

June 7th, 2012, 2:40 AM
White. Both are equally great I just prefer the colour.

June 7th, 2012, 7:48 PM
White. Can't say no to Reuniclus's face.

Oh, and the eagle of AMERICA. Black's exclusives just bored me. Black City seemed like a better exclusive area, though. White forest is still nice, I suppose.

@ Bottom: I agree actually, although it was originally the opposite for me. I got White as my main game because originally I thought White Forest was the best, yet sadly, it really wasn't. Black City actually made me look away from playing Black the most, lol. :(

June 14th, 2012, 1:22 AM
Black City and White Forest imo weren't all that great. :/ I chose Black because it has Zekrom which I like better than Reshiram.

June 15th, 2012, 3:27 AM
I got both black and white, my friend and I had so much fun battling with all my pokemon on both games. it took me ages to get most of the 600+ pokemon on both games. im gonna do the same with black 2 and white 2, black kyurem ftw

June 15th, 2012, 4:33 PM
I got both versions, but I chose to play Black first because of Reshiram. But I prefer White Forest for the free Pokemon.

IMO, Reshiram is better because its dual STABs being unresisted. Its design is also cool.

June 16th, 2012, 6:21 AM
I own both versions, but I'll have to go with White on this one. The exclusives- namely Braviary and Reuiniclus- are better than Black's. I also like Zekrom better than Reshiram, because Reshiram seems a little too bulky in size.

June 16th, 2012, 9:42 AM
Black City and White Forest imo weren't all that great. :/ I think I'll be choosing Black 2 because it has Black Kyurem which I like better than White Kyurem.

I think that they could have made white city and black forest a lot better, they weren't very well designed and i think that most people just got the games because of the pokemon and not because of the City/Forest

June 16th, 2012, 9:53 AM
I chose Black thinking I was going to get Zekrom. Nope, got Reshiram. I love them both. I prefer Black City better. I also prefer the Black Opelucid City theme better.

Ephemeral Euphoria
June 16th, 2012, 9:57 AM
I prefer White a bit more tbh due to having access to the White Forest and Thundurus to name a few exclusives which I liked moreso over Black's exclusives back then, personal preferences ftw.

I prefer Pokemon White pretty much because of the exclusives and a few perks you get here and there. I always feel like the differences between the two games are too minimal to affect the storyline (apart from the legendary part towards the end, although it still tends to be similar on both stand points). Most of the reasons of choice goes down to the little quirks a specific person has towards the games (as well as what's available in stock when purchasing it :P).

June 16th, 2012, 12:45 PM
I picked White
theres more pokemon to catch ( exclusive to white version )
but black is also real fun

June 16th, 2012, 1:14 PM
I chose Pokémon Black... I prefer Reshiram and just can't afford the idea of N catching it. I also like the Hero of Truth thing, so...
The futuristic Opelucid City is much more appealing as well.
About White Forest and Black City, I didn't care about either... You have to talk or battle everyone everyday in order to keep them there, and I just don't have time for this...

June 29th, 2012, 3:30 PM
I always get both versions, but when I imported, I chose White. I like all the version exclusives more, except Zekrom. Plus I mean PETILIL is in White. WILD PETILIL. EVERYWHERE. YES. What more reason do I need?!

June 29th, 2012, 5:08 PM
Another who goes for owning both, I tend to have one of the two as a main. For me this is White, though Black is my favored one based on some of its version exclusives.

I did purchase Black first, having it for several months before my purchase of White.

June 30th, 2012, 5:19 PM
I say White because I'll put Zekrom over Reshiram any day and I also like the rare Pokemon you get in White Forest i.e Bagon. I guess I'd rather be catching rare Pokemon in White Forest than battling them in Black City.

July 2nd, 2012, 11:15 AM
I really love the differences Black and White present, but I went with Black in the end. I felt that it provided me with everything that I enjoyed from the two games.
I really like Zekrom, but I just happen to prefer Reshiram. I love Black City, because it gives me an opportunity to level up my competitive teams and earn some extra money. I also feel that Rotation battles require a bit more strategic thinking than Triple battles.

July 3rd, 2012, 2:06 PM
I chose White because Zekrom looked better than Reshiram, at least imo. I can only buy one game so that's how I basically chose which game I want. I look at the cover and whichever one appeals to me most I buy. :D

OmegaRuby and AlphaSapphire
July 3rd, 2012, 6:25 PM
I chose White while my sister got Black. I choose White because that the one I choose when the titles were announce because I tend to go for the second versions. Once Zekrom was revealed though I was even happier with my choice ^_^. Though I can say both a quite good.

July 5th, 2012, 3:32 AM
I chose Black version, I never knew the differences besides the mascots. What made me like Reshiram more than Zekrom is that it pursues the truth rather than ideals and the fact that its a special attacking part fire type.
I dislike Black city though, not much to do unless you invite people, white forest would have been better off due to more Pokemon. However overall I prefer Black version.

July 9th, 2012, 9:27 AM
I chose White, because I like Zekrom more than Reshiram, and because I prefer Reuniclus and Liligant to Whimsicott and Gotheritta. I also preferred most of the design changes that White had to Black. I think Black City is a lot more useful than White Forest, though, so my vote goes to Black City.

July 9th, 2012, 4:42 PM
Well I got White version because I like Zekrom better than Reshiram. However, I love Black City more than White Forest so I was kind of jealous when my fiancee made it to Black City. :V So when B2 W2 come out i'm getting B2. xD

July 9th, 2012, 5:05 PM
What game did you choose? I choosed Pokémon black :)
What is the reason for choosing that game? I don't know actually... I thought the legandary was much cooler cx
do you like white forrest or black city better? Black city! ;D
Which legend do you think is better? It depends on who you battle and things like that... But if you ask me I absolutely choose Reshiram! (♥)

July 10th, 2012, 7:21 PM
What game did you choose? Pokemon White

What is the reason for choosing that game? No real preference, but my cousin planned on getting Black, so I went with White.

Do you like White Forest or Black City better? Haven't been to either, but I'd probably find more use for White Forest.

Which legend do you think is better? Have no real knowledge about either of them yet, but I do prefer the design and typing of Reshiram to Zekrom.

July 15th, 2012, 10:31 PM
White, as the version exclusives are just plain beast - including Zekrom.
However, i prefer Black City as i am always making new teams.

July 16th, 2012, 5:17 AM
I chose white, because Zekrom looked cooler. But now I am kind of obligated to get White 2, but, I kinda want Black 2

July 18th, 2012, 12:00 PM
I gravitated more towards Black because I'm a sucker for fire pokemon which made me love Reshiram, but I'm kinda dissapointed I dont have a white forest

July 18th, 2012, 12:18 PM

I bought both games. Loved them both, but for some, intangible, inexplicable reason, I lean towards my black game. Black takes the cake on legends.

July 18th, 2012, 12:24 PM
Well, I have both, but my first one was Pokemon White, simply because I love electric types, and than you could catch Emolga! I never really ended up using it a lot, anyways, after I've played it twice, I really started to love Reshiram, it looked so much cooler than Zekrom, so there I was, a week after I bought Pokemon White, They probably thought I was a nerd :P. Anyways, so I played Pokemon Black, and I loved it. Pokemon Black is my favorite, Simply because I love Reshiram, I never use legendaries tho, so I just used it once, to fight against N. But Pokemon Black still won.

But I liked Opelucid City more in Pokemon White, because it wasn't so modern. =P.
And White Forest was more fun for me, just because it was so peacefull.

July 18th, 2012, 1:32 PM
I choose Black but, recently bought a used White since I wanted to replay the game without having to restart my Black version.
I gotta say, I definitely prefer Black cause of the Black city. The White Forrest is nice for catching Pokemon but, I can just transfer those pokemon from my other games and I hate waiting for people to drop items. I'd rather buy them in the Black city. xD

July 18th, 2012, 2:17 PM
I bought them both on the same day, but I decided to play Black first because I like Reshiram's look more. My only regret is that I can't find wild Petalils and Lilligants. :( (I didn't know they were White exclusive till later)

July 18th, 2012, 2:18 PM
I chose White. I regret it because I basically like everything in Black way more after taking a deeper look into the differences with the games.

July 28th, 2012, 12:34 PM
What game did you choose? I chose Pokemon White.

Reason? Because I prefer Zekrom and White Forest, but mostly for Zekrom.

White Forest or Black City? I've only been to White Forest, but I'm sure I'd prefer it over black city.

Which legend do you think is better? I think both are great but Zekrom definitely takes the cake. I absolutely love the design.

The only thing I don't like is that Black has Mandibuzz and White doesn't, and I like Mandibuzz a lot more than Braviary.

July 29th, 2012, 4:16 PM
I chose pokemon black, but I did not really care which one it would be.
I have not really explored white forest or black city all that much so I cannot answer.
I think both of them are equally nice, but if I had to choose it would be reshiram.

July 29th, 2012, 4:22 PM
I felt Black got the better exclusive Pokemon but White Forest was superior to Black City.

July 30th, 2012, 10:59 PM
I picked White. For no other reason other than Cure White is my favorite out of all of the Pretty Cures. No joke. I picked the version I did based on a totally unrelated magical girl anime series :P

July 30th, 2012, 11:52 PM
I picked Black because I am black I liked Reshiram more than Zekrom. Definitely glad I picked that game because I would have been mad at myself for not getting Reshi. Probably its design is more prettier than Zekrom. That, and Black City > White Forest, just in my opinion. I rather be able to get more money for more items and buying evolution stones than random Pokemon that I can just migrate.

July 31st, 2012, 12:42 AM
For me I picked White sinced I think they're just pretty much the same xD

August 18th, 2012, 7:55 PM
What game did you choose?

I chose White.

What is the reason for choosing that game?

I chose it because of its version exclusive Pokemon and more importantly, zekrom.

do you like white forrest or black city better?

Sliding towards White Forest because I could catch a lot of rare Pokemon.

Which legend do you think is better?

Zekrom. But it all comes down to personal preference.
