Fifth Generation Are Pokémon slaves to humans? Team Plasma thinks so. Travel the Unova region and prove them wrong in Black & White, and then return two years later in Black2 & White2.

I remember that about her Seviper. I meant that actually none of the Pokemon in the trailer said their names, even that Seviper the Plasma trainer had. Though, it may just be because none of them were "cutesy" Pokemon. I'm sure if Pikachu were in it, the actress from the anime would have been used.

These are brand new games. New Pokemon, new features, new everything. When it comes to GF releasing a new thing, or any company releasing something new, you kind of have to be super excited of it. If you're not proud of your product, your customer won't be excited. As far as using Arcanine goes, it is a VERY well known Pokemon. My mother even knows it and she only knows three Pokemon at best. Using such an appealing Pokemon in their trailer only makes the consumer more excited to see more of this game which can potentially lead to the purchase of said game.

To be honest, it makes sense that they would use Arcanine, as random as it seems. Yes, Emboar may have been slightly more appropriate, but if they want to show that they have included Pokemon from the previous generations into the games, this is a good way to go. Yes, they did show Seviper and whatnot, but you also want to show the hero of the game having a Pokemon from another generation as well, such as Arcanine and Lucario.
Agreed totally. I have to admit, Arcanine is one of my favorite Pokemon, so it was great to see it in the trailer.

I keep replaying the trailer, and admittedly for the music. Wouldn't it be nice if it were in the games? If only. :(

Actually I was talking about overhyping the fact that Arcanine was in the games, not the games themselves. I don't mind hyping up the game, but for me personally, I'm sick of seeing, "Oh look we're going to have the big hairy angry looking fire dog Pokemon in this!" It's not quite as bad as the overhyping of Pikachu throughout the entire franchise yet, but still...

Arcanine happens to be one of the most unappealing Pokemon IMO and the fact they used it, coupled with the male character instead of the female, meant that the trailer actually failed to excite me as much as it was probably meant to. Again, it's all a matter of my personal preference and me being a cat person.

Bottom line, if I went into this trailer knowing nothing else about B2/W2, I would not be interested based on the trailer alone.

Oh yeah, I don't appreciate you trying to undermine my credibility on the site.

...also wait if I understood the story correctly, triple battle with you, your rival and Cheren versus Plasma in the games? omg.
Hopefully! That'd be really cool. But would we be able to switch positions in the battle?

As soon as I saw this trailer, I pre-ordered the game!

Everyone had low expectations of this, but now the game turns out to be awesome! (Hopefully.....)

Actually, I don't think so, even with Pikachu. Pikachu as a mascot and pokémon saying their names, it is a distinct anime thing. Pokémon Yellow Version had Pikachu saying its name because the game was based on the anime. In the other games, even the newer ones where sound channels and technology is no longer a hindrance, new pokémon get sounds that fit their physiology or appearance rather than saying their names.

This proves - again - that the game universe is totally separate from the anime universe. It's a kids thing, while the 5th gen games obviously strive to be interesting to a (somewhat) more mature audience, what with its focus on characters (Cheren and Bianca actually AGED omfg) and story instead of just introducing another new region or pokémon.

When RPing (because that's where I can relate to this xD) I have always preferred to have pokémon make noises and act at least somewhat more animal-like than they do in the anime.

Hooray for the game-verse, in short. If they ever really do a real anime based on this (but I guess it's not likely), I will love the creators forever. There's a slllllight chance that a movie could be made though, isn't there? :D why give up

Lucario totally gives out a cute bark~

I think the trailer holds some interresting concept's and shows a decent deal of what pokemon black/white 2 may look like in the future. I am very much looking forward to the game

I personally thought this was fan-made at first, just because the music was just so astounding/unexpected coming from Pokemon.

I also just adored all of those voice actors <333

All I can think about right now- pokemon b and w 2 ;o;
Can't believe half of the region is frozen over like in the trailer.

So, I finally watched the video. I must admit that I fell in love with it. Though, I was so thinking "this is some seriously smooth propaganda. Now I'm definately going to buy it!" XD

I am ecstatic about seeing Arcanine and Seviper. So excited. Of course, I freaked out when I saw the Shadow Triad. Bianca and Cheren were way Kawaii. I do wonder if maybe N will eventually give up the Pokemon Liberation goal and will be working with you later in the game instead of just being a competitive rival...it's not likely, but he doesn't seem evil to me.

I wonder if Team Rocket will be attacking Team Plasma in the games as well.

It's even better because Pikachu wasn't in it.!

Again, Elesa was stunning. Looks like Brycen didn't get a re-design so I wonder who else will. I hope Skyla does.

Oh my, I thought they were gonna make a spin off show like chronicles, that would be great! This is how the anime should be like.
So the protagonist has an Emboar, Arcanine and Lucario? Well I just found 3 confirmed Pokemon on my team in BW2...

Also, does this mean that there will be two evil teams? Team Plasma and the Ninja's? Or are they both working together to achieve the same goal?

The three Ninja's were the Shadow Triad, the group that works exclusively for Gheitsis. Who are also associated with Team Plasma.

Probably not imo, since it looks just to be triple and not rotational. :(

I really think the Plasma remixed music will be in the games, idk about everything else, but they can't just not include anything from the trailer, that'd be dumb on their parts!

So much epicness!! Thank you so much for sharing

I like the look of the woman next to Seviper; the Rival looks cool and I have to say this promo made me like the male protagonist a lot more

Also, Arcanine and Samurott looked awesome there haha

Ah, I see. Yeah, it definitely sets it apart from the actual anime. For me, as long as the voice/sound fits the Pokemon, I don't mind. Personally, I didn't feel that Pignite's voice fit it very well. But yeah, they should try to make something of this quality, even if it is completely original and not based off a game or the show.

It's Emboar not Pignite
And I think every voice fits well for the Pokemon, I mean they all sound very intimidating, and considering these are monsters you use to fight with, that's definately a good thing.

Ahhhh! This trailer has to be the coolest thing Pokemon has ever done. The animation is amazing and the characters and pokemon look great.

There are two things troubling me about the upcoming games that no one else seems to talk about though. What ever became of Black and White (or Hilbert/Hilda, your choice)? I really hope to see them in the games and not just in a cameo. They were a huge part of the first games, obviously being the protagonists and all.

Also what about Black Kyurem and White Kyurem? Is Kyurem some sort of parasite that takes control of a host (in this case Zekrom/Reshiram)? Or will Black Kyurem and White Kyurem be totally different pokemon from Zekrom and Reshiram?

Gah, so many possibilities! I can't wait for these games!

I personally liked the trailer. It had nice music and the animation was really nice... The male protagonist looks better in the animation than he does in those released screen shots... Hm...

Cheren looks very nice in this game and I believe he looked stunning in the trailer. :D
