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.

OK, now I browsed through Bulbapedia and discovered that in most cases in terms of main games, Australia's release date was BEFORE Europe's.

The only times Australia were last in the English release were Red & Blue and Black & White.

Most of the time it was Europe that came last.

So yeah I could be seeing the 11th as a possibility although they might go with the pattern that Red & Blue had: America > Europe > Australia.

In the case with HeartGold & SoulSilver, the Australian and European release had a very small margin.

The only time Europe was first was with Black & White, although they did get a few spinoffs before America.

Does anyone think I have a point?

I agree with that MR & AS, if they make Australia last then that could cause spoilers for Australian players.

Australia was in the middle for all main games bar Black & White, Red & Blue and Gold & Silver. In the latter's case, Australia was actually FIRST. Yep, Gen II started in Australia before America.

Octobah? Not bad :/

Too bad I din' get myself a job this summer ah well it's all good. Australians even though I live in California I feel ya pain.

Though I'd be too busy during October anyways

For the fact that the games have been revised plenty (the names aren't in need of being created) and UK and Aus all speak more or less American English I assume it shouldn't be that bad of a delay for y'all. Unless Nintendo of Australia gets really lazy.

It's too bad it'll take them that long to get it over here. By the time it does there will have already been a complete english patch released.

I can't wait for October. I'm probably going to start saving up in August so I could buy the game along with necessities. I need to get it on release date since I did that for Pokemon Black.

As I predicted, Europe are getting it 12th October! US 7th which is great, early October is fine for me and it's not all that long away, only 3 months. After seeing all the new features in these games since it's release in Japan I've been becoming more eager to play these games so I really can't wait now!

As a sidenote, October 7 is part of a 3-day weekend for most people in North America, as October 8 is Columbus Day in the States as well as Canadian Thanksgiving.

We don't have columbus day in my state (not like I want to celebrate someone like columbus anyways) so yeah...
Perhaps Australia will break the pattern and get it on the 14 rather than the 25th,18th or 11th...or the 4th...lol would't it be funny if they did get it earlier everyone will be envious of Australians rather than the other way around.

I was hoping for September, but hey, October's not bad ei-- oh wait crap, that's the height of band month. Soooo many competitions to go to. Which means less time to play, and I'll be buying them both. Hoooo boy! But still, it's nice to know the date now. Can't wait! But I mean, I have a Japanese copy that should be here soon, and I can't wait for that either. I am impatient lol. :(

In Gold & Silver's case, Australia got it first. So yeah, if it were to happen like that it would be interesting.

Also in most cases, Australia was second in terms of releases. Europe was often the one that came last although that wasn't the case for Red & Blue and Black & White. In the latter's case Europe got it first.

I'm actually glad about this, since it'll give me some time to save up some money after the mandatory purchase of KH3D.

...was still hoping for september though

No, because my birthday is in November and this can be like an early birthday present. "Early" meaning "no I certainly will not wait to play it what are you smoking"

I expected it to be later tbh, so in that regard I like it.

Of course I'd be in the middle of uni then, so WHOOPS.

My Birthday is at the beginning of November so I was thinking that's just nice timing but knowing it's out I think I'll be too tempted to go out and buy it, I was expecting sometime in October but it's nice that it's around the beginning of it. IIRC it's the earliest Localization for any of the games so far, right?

OK guys, especially the Aussies involved in this discussion.

I have checked BulbanewsNOW's Twitter feed and it says the Australian release might be on October 12, which is the same day as the European release.

It is unconfirmed at this point but I'm hoping this is true.

It's likely, considering the localization is shorter than usual it may well be the 12th and I'm hoping for it too. Although I'm not from there it would be nice to see you guys getting it the same time as others.

I think that the leaked date will be likely true.

Keep in mind these will be the first games since FireRed & LeafGreen to have the Japanese and international releases in the same year.

The translation team sure have been working hard just to get the game released internationally this year rather than waiting until 2013. Most international releases usually occur like, one year after the Japanese release.

I cannot wait for the English version to come out this fall! It will definitely be worth the wait! I plan on using the key link to start my Black2/White2 game on Challenge mode from the very beginning!

Yeah not true. We get games on Thursday, not Friday. Unless it was a typo and it's actually 11, I kinda don't believe they'll break the tradition :(

I think that might have been an error.

I could see October 11 to be the closest to what was leaked, cos the 18th would be too far into the month.

Haha. Dunno if it's already been mentioned, but the Peeta Mellark guy gets Pokemon BW2 for his birthday. Lol (If he just happened to be in Europe at that time anyway...)

That's actually pretty awesome timing, since it's about a week before my birthday that they come out in Europe. Woop woop! Here's to getting games on time for once ;3

How nice if the australian release dates is on the 12th, that would mean a shorter wait for downunder. Also waiting one day later than tradition is better than keeping tradition and getting them 6 days after Europe imo...

All the Aussies will be spoiled if there's an 11 day wait from US to AUS. A 4 or 5 day wait, not so much.

Double post, but Australia gets BW2 on October 11.

That was my post from July 5th, 2012. I can't believe I got it right! Oh god I am such a psychic.

Anyways, I'm glad cos it's not too late into the month.

Had the Australian release been like, the 18th then me and my Australian brethren would have gotten unfortunate spoilers.

But anyways, at least we get it before Europe (but then again Australia got most games before Europe).
