Black or White?
Which version of the game did you purchase?
Did you buy both or only one?
Is there any reason you picked that one, or was it completely random?

I bought black and black2 i born in NYC its a game about NY so it should be in a urban setting

Hikamaru January 12th, 2013 4:04 PM

I did get both Black and White but Black is my main version of the two.

The main reason I picked Black over White was due to me liking the version exclusives better than White's. (I just had to have Reshiram and Gothitelle!)

I initially got Black, then repurchased White.

SoraTheTruth January 12th, 2013 7:01 PM

i bought White because Zekrom looked cooler than Reshiram to me during the time

JayD January 12th, 2013 8:48 PM

I got White, but I actually didn't buy the game. My girlfriend got it for me for Christmas, but it's good because she knew I liked White better than Black :P

I got White Version, based on the premise that if my cousin ended up getting a 5th gen game, he was going to get Black (we usually play through at the same time, but aside from HG/SS, we always seemed to have the same version, so I figured it would be best to go with the opposite of him).

I bought White, but I regretted it after I beat it because the city in Black just seemed so much more appealing than the forest.

WildDevon January 12th, 2013 11:37 PM

Got white because I thought everyone else would get black. Plus Zekrom's types are better than just having a lame Fire Breathing Dragon.

I got pokemon black because my friends told me it was the better choice. I don't regret it :3

I got Black because I totally love Reshiram! I was annoyed that you couldn't get Braviary without trading though.

Starry Windy January 13th, 2013 3:31 AM

I got White and I like it because of White Forest, Reuniclus and Braviary. I like Black too for futuristic settings of Opelucid City, so I picked both.

I purchased Pokemon Black for a reason I can't seem to remember.

liskinsforwins January 13th, 2013 9:10 AM

I got white because I liked the look of Zekrom. Still not sure why the Black legendary was in the White game, but I suppose that's just another mystery set down by the PokeDevelopers.

Yuoaman January 13th, 2013 10:00 AM

I got Black, and in turn Black 2, because I preferred the technological focus over the nature one - simple as that.

pikakitten January 13th, 2013 10:23 AM

I chose black because I prefered Reshiram but I didn't spoil too much about the game to know that White had more of my favorite pokemon :P xD

Poke Fox January 13th, 2013 2:22 PM

I couldn't find Pokemon Pearl today, I decided to buy White version, I already have Black 2, and wanted to buy the original Unova game, so I went with White.

ArcanineIsDaBomb January 15th, 2013 7:27 PM

I bought white, and white only! I went with it mainly based on the version exclusives. I preferred zekrom to reshiram, and I desperately wanted a reuniclus, (and hated gothitelle) and I think I didn't really care about the other version exclusives XD. Now I wish I had thought it through better!


Lance January 18th, 2013 7:28 AM

White, because, you know, Braviary. Gotta get one of my favorite Pokemon ever. I didn't even get Black until about a year ago.

Meganium January 18th, 2013 2:10 PM

I bought White because I was curious about White Forest. When it said that you'd find some rare Pokemon there, I just gotta find out which ones. xD

Blue January 18th, 2013 2:16 PM

White because I prefer it to Black.

KungFuPurp January 18th, 2013 2:51 PM

Hmm..i guess it just depends on personal preference, but really to me i would choose black just because it looks better than White. On the other hand i would choose White & it's exclusives over Black & it's exclusives.

I'm making this decision in the next couple days on which i'm gonna buy only because i decided to wait to buy/play White/Black,Black2/White2 till later down the road since i took a long break from pokemon, so i've decided to replay Fire Red, Ruby & Platinum to really catch back up. Pretty exciting because of the break i took i have so much Pokemon to look forward too.

So my vote goes to White since that's probably what i'll buy

Ace. January 23rd, 2013 1:35 AM

I got Black. Black because of Reshiram. Before I prefered Lilligant over Whimsicott but when II actually used in in Black, I liked it more and more. That being said, I also liked Opelucid City's design in Black better than the one in White. Though at the time I did prefer Iris over Drayden. I also prefered Thundurus over Tornadous since Thundurus looks better and does have an advantage though Reshiram being in Black I got that ;D

BLOOOD-La-ti- January 23rd, 2013 1:40 AM

I got both,but White is my main,
I used them all the time,until B2W2 was released,but I still use them though like almost everyday.
White is my main cuz of the White Forest,it's true that Black has better exclusives than White.
But....White Forest is so much better.And also cuz of Zekrom!
